My fiancé, two kids, and I live in a small 900 sq. ft. 2 bedroom apartment. With tons of toys and hobby things for us parents (I am crafty and he likes to tinker with cars) we just don't have a lot of space! We have to have a fan in the small hallway, because our air handler just doesn't get enough air to the nursery.
We used to have a box fan in the hallway, but it took up way too much space and it was really loud! My son would also constantly turn of and on the box fan. At one point he decided to throw one of my fiancé's wrenches in the fan! Luckily, the fan didn't break and the wrench only made a bunch of noise. That loud noise scared the bajeezies out of my son, poor guy!
I was extremely happy to be given the opportunity to try Ozeri's Ultra 42" Oscillating Tower Fan. The fan came in 4 parts; two half circles that make the base, the small rod that goes between the fan and the base, and the base itself. The fan remote and the hardware for the fan come in small baggies. I really like the fact that Ozeri includes batteries for the remote!
It was really easy to assemble this fan! 1st, you just snap the two base pieces together to make a circle and secure it with four small screws, using a screwdriver. Next, you secure the small rod to the base with twist on bolt "things", no need for a screwdriver for this part. Then, you secure the fan component onto the rod, this time you do need a screwdriver. Finally, after you put the batteries in the remote, place the remote in its home!
Even though it isn't air conditioning weather, I have been using this fan all day. I keep it on low, so that the nursery doesn't get stuffy. I have the air off and this fan going and my house feels amazing! I cant see how I was able to tolerate that bulky and loud box fan before!
You can find this amazing fan here.
