The reason why tower fans are so popular is because they can cool down rooms where your air conditioner doesn’t reach with pretty much the same efficiency. Due to their design, they take up a lot less space than regular fans, which is why you can safely position them on top of furniture just as well. The most important aspect of tower fans, however, is how surprisingly quiet they are.

Even so, some tower fans are definitely better than others in terms of both speed and quietness.
