Are you looking for a great portable cooling fan to use in your home?
While it is now officially Fall it still feels like Summer in most places across the United States. For those living in dry climates, the perfect solution is getting a portable evaporative fan. One that utilizes water to quickly chill the air.
I live in Utah, which is a desert state. It is pretty dry here. So when I was given the chance to try out NewAir’s Evaporative Air Cooler and Portable Cooling Fan (NEC500SI00) I was really excited. I grew up in a home with a swamp cooler, so I knew all about how combining water and a fan can cool a room super fast.
What I love about this Newair Portable Cooling Fan is that while it utilizes water, it doesn’t oversaturate the room when used. It’s more of a subtle humidity that is felt with the cooling fan and it works amazingly to cool off your room. In fact, it can cool an area of 250sq feet.
This portable fan is easy to set up (it only took a few minutes to fully set up right out of the box. It is easy to move around, thanks to the wheels on the bottom, so you can change rooms if you need to. (Like your living room during the day and your bedroom at night.)
This cooling fan doesn’t use any chemicals like coolant to cool your room. It just uses water. There is a water tank in the back. The tank holds 1.45 Gallons of water at a time and you can see the level of your water via a window on the front of the fan.
It also comes with ice packs you can freeze and then add to the water tanks to get a deeper chill for those really hot days like we have had so far this year.
It is also on the back that you can access the cooling pad and dust air filter (right above the water tank) when you need to clean them out. Yes, it does have a dust-air filter! So your air is cleaner and cooler when you use it.
Not only does it put out super cool air via its Cyclone fan function, but it also sucks in the hot air into the unit helping to fully cycle the air in your home getting it to your preferred temperature. It is during this process that this portable fan pulls the dust out of the air.
Best of all you can control the NewAir’s Evaporative Air Cooler and Portable Cooling Fan (NEC500SI00) via buttons on the top of the device. It also comes with a convenient remote control that you can use to control the fan while sitting or working across the room when you don’t want to get up.
We had the fan set up in just minutes and it worked soo fast. Within minutes of turning on the fan, our room temperature had dropped several degrees to a perfect temperature. I totally recommend this Everaperatuve Fan to anyone looking for a fan that actually cools a room. Perfect for people who live in dry climates.
