Disclosure- I received the item mentioned below to facilitate my post. All opinions are 100% my own.
We recently had a professional organizer come to our house and help us get it organized and more functional. (Keep an eye out for an upcoming post!) One of the improvements is that now our garage is organized and we have turned the center of it into a laundry station since our washer and dryer are in the garage. The only problem is that we live in South Florida and our garage is H-O-T! I love the space we created but I was getting sweaty just folding and hanging a load of laundry. I love the Ozeri 3X Tower Fan that I reviewed in December and use it every day. I have that fan set up next to my desk and didn’t want to give it up for the garage. I knew it I needed to reach out to my friends at Ozeri to review another one of their fans. They sent me the Ozeri Ultra Wind 42″ Adjustable Oscillating Tower Fan with Smart LCD and Remote Control.
The fan was super simple to assemble. It comes mostly assembled in the box. I just had to screw on the optional extension column and the base. Without the extension column the fan is 32 inches high and with the column the fan is 42 inches high. In about 5 minutes I was ready to use my new fan. The fan is powerful and really blows air across my garage. I love that it has a remote control so I can adjust the settings from across my garage without having to get close to the fan. I can be on the other end of my garage and the remote works perfectly.
The fan is sleek and would work well in any room of my house. It has 3 whisper-quiet speed settings and 90 degree wide angle oscillation to really blow the air all around. Even on the lowest speed it is pretty powerful but my favorite speed is the highest level. There are 3 different mode settings to give you 3 different breeze patterns (Sleep, Nature, and Normal) foster sleep, relaxation and comfort. Since I am using it in my garage I leave it in the normal setting but I’m thinking about getting another one for my bedroom so I can use it in one of the other settings to help me fall asleep. I think the nature setting where it alternates between blowing hard and blowing soft and slowly, just like a real breeze, would be great to pair with a nature sounds CD or app to use when I am trying to fall asleep. Hmmm, I might just have to steal the fan tonight and bring it upstairs for bedtime because using the nature setting with my nature sounds app on my cellphone sounds heavenly!
The fan has a 12 hour timer that you can set in 1 hour increments. This would be great if you were using it in a bedroom or other room where you wanted to control how long the fan runs for. I especially like that the fan shows the temperature in the room, too. I’ve always wondered how hot my garage is so it’s nice to be able to have a visual display to let me know. If you want the fan to blow in one area you can turn the oscillation off or you can turn the oscillation on and it will rotate to blow air around the room.
If you are using the Ozeri Ultra Wind 42″ Adjustable Oscillating Tower Fan in a bedroom there is a great night mode function where all icons on the LCD screen are dimmed except for the moon icon. This is great when you’re trying to sleep so you aren’t kept up by the light from the fan LCD screen.
