What do you do when your quest to cool down eats away at your energy bills? Simple, you do away with those energy guzzling fans and replace them with cheaper, powerful, more energy efficient window fans.
As you may have guessed, the best window fans fit on your window(s).
A majority of other fans cool you by blowing air directly towards you. Window fans work differently. They cool a room by bringing in cool air from the outside. They also keep the room fresh by sucking out the stale air.
They can either be manually reversible or electrically reversible. The former needs to be shifted so as to change the direction of airflow while the latter automatically changes airflow by the flip of a switch.
There are those that have multiple independent blades that work simultaneously to exhaust stale air and/or draw in cool air while others just have a single set of blades.
Choosing a good window fan can be a hectic process and a lot needs to be put into consideration. By reading my reviews you will be sure to choose the very best and most powerful window fan available in the market today.
