A lot of homes and offices use air conditioners nowadays since they can make a room cold in just a matter of minutes. But the downside? It can pretty much cost a lot. No worries, though because you can still get a cool room without an air conditioner, using a fan. And not just any fan. Try a tower fan, like the Honeywell HY-280 Quiet Set Whole Room Tower Fan.

Features

  • Contains 8 speeds and levels of quiet control
  • Has a remote control together with an on-product housing
  • Touch button electronic controls
  • Comes along with breeze and oscillation setting
  • Has an adjustable thermostat and digital display
  • Auto shut-off timer options include one, two, four and eight hours

Pros

The Honeywell HY-280 Quiet Set Whole Room Tower Fan is perhaps the most silent tower fan you will ever encounter. And this is at any speed, so if you have a noisy fan in your bedroom, you might want to replace it with this tower fan so you can sleep better.

It has eight speeds, unlike the usual three. Also, it contains a temperature control that lets you choose a room temperature that the fan will automatically be set to once it is turned on. The tower fan will show you the temperature of the room.

In addition, it’s got an automatic shut-off timer that turns off the fan according to the time set: one, two, four or eight hours. Further, this tower fan is really sturdy and will last a long time.. And for those who have uneven temperatures in their homes, this one can really solve the problem and make your home more livable.

Its eight speeds may be the biggest factor, but there are also other features that have made customers adore this product. Surprisingly, it has kept air cooling costs low, probably because there is no need to use the air con as often as before, all thanks to this tower fan.

The tower lives up to its name by being a quiet set, since it produces minimal noise. In itself, the noise is more like “white noise” that is actually a kind of noise used to fall asleep. Other options include getting to choose whether the fan stays still or revolves. Even though it might be a bit pricey, it is worth every dollar because of its great quality and performance.

In addition, it not only automatically turns off when you choose the number of hours you want, it also turns off automatically when a room reaches a preferred temperature. For instance, if it reaches 80 degrees, the fan shuts off upon reaching 70 or 75 degrees. Thus, you do not need to bother turning off this tower fan when during cool nights. Truly saves electricity!

Cons

The LED control panel is quite an issue, especially for those who want total darkness when sleeping. That is because the LED plate is so bright that many people wind up covering it up. Its base does not look solid or sturdy too. And the electronic speed control?

It may not be as reliable since some customers said that it stopped working after one week. They then needed to use the remote in changing the speed because the speed button has become completely dead.

Also, some reviews stated that it was not sturdy given the poor setup it has inside. There were plastics attached to the base which were obviously not that strong; this then resulted in the tower fan being tilted at an angle and producing clicking sound.

In addition, the remote control surprisingly has only three buttons, with no timer button included. The fan seems to wobble as well when you push a button on the panel. Moreover, this one (and tower fans in general) traps dust inside, accumulating it, causing a bit of a noise during oscillation and making it hard to clean it.

Verdict

Aside from its strong light, other disadvantages seem to fade in the background, all because its pros truly stand out. That is why the Honeywell HY-280 Quiet Set Whole Room Tower Fan is still very much recommendable.

It not only works well, but it also looks fine! It has this modern and sleek design with a digital temperature read. No hassle in putting this up together too, since only minor assembly is required, given that the pedestal base is super simple to handle. It saves space and has a pretty good height. To add, it contains one-year warranty. A total package, isn’t it?
