In these summer months the bedroom in my ground floor flat gets unbearably hot. It makes the nights very uncomfortable and especially with two lots of body heat to add to things and not really being able to open the window with it being on the ground floor we invested in a fan this year to ease the heat in the flat. We decided to purchase this Bionaire model based on recommendations from a friend about the brand and the fact it fits in with our décor. At £36 it was much more expensive than other lines but we thought for the use it will get we might as well invest in a decent one to last us a few summers.
This is a 12" fan that was easy to assemble out of the box. Within seconds it was up and standing in the corner of our room and ready to be used. Its got a decent weight to it and it looks well made and the chrome/silver effects go well in any room. When you pay good money for something you hope that the look reflects it and this certainly does. The height can be adjusted and has an adjustable tilt angle too to give maximum reach across the room.
The first thing we noticed when turning it on was the ever so quiet sound. One of our worries was, as this would be a fan mainly used for night time, the possible noise for a fan we bought as having cheap models at work I knew they could be very distracting. But this has as close to silence as you will get in a fan. The dulset, low sound it makes is easy to get used to and within a few minutes you wont notice that its even there.
The fan rotates or can be made to stand still but we find it works better when rotating around the room giving a more even distribution of air. It easily covers our average size room and the few times we have taken it into the large living room its fanned the whole room easily.
It's a powerful fan too giving off plenty of air and with 3 settings it has a nicely balanced feel to it and can be used in variety of conditions.
We have had no problems with this and use it for 2-3 hours a day and for an hour or two overnight to cool the place down and it works wonders. Gone are the sweaty nights and uncomfortable bed times and the machines shows no signa of wear and tear after a few months use
The Bionaire BASF1314 Stand Fan has 3 Speeds. The 12 in. unit has 4 Blades.
