Fan Creates Tempest In Your Room Using Just 133 Watts

Energy Efficient Fan By Lasko

Lasko is a company that still makes its fans in the USA. I like their all-metal fans because they are very durable, and the parts can be replaced by Lasko. They also come with a two-year warranty. The fan featured here is the Lasko 20″ High Velocity Floor Fan, and it will move a huge amount of air in a room. I tested the fan using my Kill-A-Watt electricity usage monitor. I found that on its low setting, the fan uses 122 Watts, but the real treat is the high setting, which will create tempestuous movements of air using only 133 Watts.

Note that the fan is somewhat noisy, but personally I find the sound soothing and much like over-sized hummingbird hovering in the room.

The Lasko 20″ High Velocity Floor Fan is available on Amazon for about $63.

    From what I read on the Net, the best “fan”, which the company actually calls an “air mover” is the Vornado. I would love to see a comparison of the two.

    Lasko has been my favorite brand for fans for many years. I own 3 of them. They are the best bang for my buck as thy are indeed durable (I’ve owned them each for many years) and the metal blades seem to push more air. Your review is spot on in my book.

    I just bought the fan the article linked from Amazon. I didn’t notice at the time, but right in the Amazon listing it says, made in China. The box it came in, says made in China.
