Portable Fans

A portable fan is an excellent way to stay cool at home or in the office. They come in many different sizes, from tiny, clip-on units that are ideal for spot cooling to larger models that can keep air circulating in an entire room. Staples carries a variety of fans from manufacturers such as Optimus, Royal Sovereign, and Lasko.

Portable Fans Offer Flexible Air Circulation
Fans are designed to move air, and most personal-sized products include features that let users adjust circulation to match their needs. Most have tilt and swivel heads that direct the airflow exactly where it's needed. Position a fan in a doorway to pull cooler air into a hot office or send smoke from a kitchen mishap out the window. Some fans have oscillating heads that constantly change direction. They're an excellent way to keep air moving around the room. A few of these products even swivel both vertically and horizontally, further enhancing their circulation capabilities.

Most window fans have multispeed motors that let you adjust the airflow to match the size of the room and the cooling needed. Small fans are also easy to place where they're needed. Free-standing models have flat bases that provide stable support when placed on a desk or floor, and clip-on products are simple to attach to a convenient shelf or table edge, providing a cooling breeze in hard to reach areas. There are also battery-powered handheld fans and USB-powered desk models that are small enough to pack in a carry-on or laptop bag.

Portable Fans Come With Easy-to-Use Controls
Portable fans are fairly simple devices, so their controls are not complicated. Most have twist knobs that control blade speed and turn the unit on or off. Some include LED indicators that display the current settings, and many oscillating fans have switches that enable or disable the rotating feature. Select tower fans include a hand-held remote control that lets users change settings from anywhere in the room or have timers that let you keep the fan running for a fixed amount of time, typically one to four hours.

Portable Fans Serve As Decorative Cooling Systems for Any Room
While many desk fans have functional designs, others have tinted or wooden blades and decorative trim that makes them a beautiful addition to any room. Choose a floor fan with a cute animal motif to add a touch of whimsy to a child's bedroom or pick one with interchangeable blades and select a new appearance when you move it to a different location.

Portable Fans That Are Quiet or Soundless  
Most portable fans use small electric motors and have blades designed to reduce noise, so they're almost silent when running. Select products even have bladeless designs that further reduce noise output. The muted whir of fan blades can even serve as a white noise generator. Consider using one in the bedroom to drown out nighttime street sounds or in the office to mask nearby conversations.

Keeping a portable fan on hand is an excellent way to provide spot cooling where it's needed most. These compact products are easy to use, can be placed almost anywhere and come in a broad range of styles. Find a cooling solution for any room when you shop the fans available at Staples.
