With many of us working from home amidst the pandemic, it is common to hear your friends talk about missing their colleagues and their office. However, one common complaint that I hear more often than not is that they miss the “free aircon” that working in the office provides. For some of us, working from home means working in the heat of the forever summer Singapore! If you refuse to splurge on switching on the aircon daily, and the heat is getting to you, it may be time for you to invest in a tower fan.
With upright, vertical builds that typically oscillate from side to side, a tower fan, when well placed, can quickly cast a cooling breeze across an entire room without taking up too much space or using too much energy. On top of that, many tower fans are aesthetically pleasing, and may add on to your instagrammable room!
