Portable fans are great for a number of reasons. First, you don't have to deal with the installation process. You simply unpack your fan and plug it in. This is ideal if you're renting a place and can't do a lot of remodeling. Portable fans can also be moved easily from room to room. Perhaps you spend most of your day in your office or living room and move to the bedroom at night.

If you don't need a fan in both places at once, you can save money by using a portable fan instead of a ceiling fan. Now, most of us are used to the plain-colored portable fans that we find in pharmacies or such big stores at Target and Wal-Mart. However, you aren't stuck to those simple, non-artistic designs. Many ceiling fan manufacturers also make stylish portable fans.

Exciting Portable Fans

Maybe you'd like a black and copper or black and pewter fan. Both of these have wonderful looks reminiscent of the happening times of the old South. Aptly enough, Fanimation carries a line of portable fans called the Old Havana. When you're looking for a standout portable fan, you might want to utilize the Internet. Sort through major companies and see what each one has to offer.

You'll find that each company has its own look. Some fans might be similar, but some will certainly stand out as original. If it's important to you that the fan oscillates, make sure to check for that. Also, some fans only have two speeds, while others have four or five. What you purchase will depend on your air-blowing needs.
