Hi Dan i was looking into a unit, but my daughter recommended me to an oscillating fan on Argos. Its very tall and has remote control. It sits in the corner of my bedroom, and to be honest my room is quite big over 15feet x 13 and on 1 it keeps me cool and the dog. Its lush, and I can set it for up to 8 hours. I only use it on static.
It only cost me 54.00 the best money i have spent, as i have bought oscillators before, but this one is brilliant. One of my other friends has MS and he has 2 now one in his sitting room and one in bedroom. I don’t bother with my sitting room as its lovely and cool in there.
I find on 1 it is perfect for me and not noisy but yes on III setting it sounds a bit but really I dont need it higher then 1.
For the price it really cools down the room.
