Most fans are noisy, which means they produce sounds that can be loud and irritating, especially when you’re trying to sleep. They can also be incompetent and not really help in cooling a given area, just circulating room-temperature air. In addition, there are fans that can only cover a limited area so they can’t be used for a large space.

However, there actually is a fan that can address these issues—the Honeywell HYF023W Comfort Control Tower Fan.

Features

  • Has electronic controls together with LED display
  • Three speeds plus oscillation
  • Contains an auto-off timer with options of 1, 2, 4 and 8 hours
  • Comes with a recessed carry handle
  • Measures 8.3” x 7.5” x 32.3”
  • Push button controls are easy to use

Pros

The Honeywell HYF023W Comfort Control Tower Fan is one of the most reliable tower fans you will ever have. For one, it is sure to serve you for a long time, given that it is durable enough to do its job for years. It does not produce any strange noises or rattling sounds as well, even if it has not been cleaned for a while.

If it does make some noise, it is a good kind of noise called white noise, which is really helpful for a person trying to fall asleep quicker. It really does a wonderful job of making a room comfortably cold, in which there are instances that it actually has to be turned off since it can “freeze” you out, in a good way. So just think about how much you can save on your air-conditioning bills with this amazing product.

Since this fan can accomplish your cooling needs, even at the lowest setting, that is a big thumbs up for the product. It also has the perfect height to be placed easily in any room. The sleek design comes together with ergonomic controls. In addition, it is sold at a very affordable price, so really, it is a win-win situation.

Another good point is that it is easy to assemble so no hassle over that. And as has been said, it acts more like an air conditioner, making your room supremely comfortable—and even better, its price is extremely affordable. Unlike most fans, the Comfort Control Tower Fan does not just circulate ambient room temperature air, it really puts out cold air. Indeed, this is what every hot room needs, really perfect for the summer.

Further, it has three speeds which, even the lowest one can already satisfy you. It has a great oscillation so that it covers a fairly wide area even if it is not moving back and forth. Also, it has a programmable, variable time-out function that reaches up to eight hours, something that other tower fans do not have.

Cons

Some buyers were surprised when its motor produced an annoying ticking sound after about a dozen times’ use. Others, experienced a high-pitched whine sound like that of a tiny jet engine. Clearly, it has not been as quiet as it should be.

There were also claims that as contrary to the pros of this product, it does not blow air like an air conditioner, but only blows room temperature air, just like other fans. Moreover, it just rotates 90 degrees, so it does really not cover a closed space wholly. Thus, customers were not able to really get comfortable on a hot summer day.

To add to the complaints, the base of this tower fan is a bit too lightweight and therefore, it is not extremely sturdy on carpeting. When it comes to assembly, the screws are difficult to put in, perhaps a reflection of the product’s poor construction and design. The three holes in the tower fan are not aligned properly, as well, on some received products.

Verdict

Despite the flaws, the Honeywell HYF023W Comfort Control Tower Fan remains an acclaimed tower fan. It has three speeds to suit your preferences, plus an LED display that easily allows you read your settings. Its oscillation feature blows air evenly.

In addition, it contains an auto-off timer in which you can choose turn it off after 1, 2, 4 or 8 hours. That saves you the hassle of manually turning off the electric fan, especially at night when you are comfortably sleeping. It has push buttons that are indeed easy to use, as well as a recessed carry handle.

And unlike other fans, this tower fan is ultimately quiet! Therefore, it will not annoy or disturb you. It produces minimal noise, though, but a good type known as white noise. It has been proven to enable you to fall asleep faster. And imagine getting all these at an affordable price!
