Best Pedestal Fans

Shopping for fans might not be the most entertaining experience of your life, but the best pedestal fans can make your life infinitely more comfortable, whether it’s circulating air in a stuffy bedroom or overheated workspace.

But there are a lot of highly-rated pedestal fans out there to choose from, so it's important to know exactly what you want out of a fan. Do you need a quiet fan or a powerfully loud fan for white noise that might help you sleep better? Do you need a small fan that won't take up too much space in your studio apartment, or are you committed to finding a pretty fan to fit your home or office aesthetic?

Another thing you might want to consider is whether you would rather splurge a little bit for a "smart" fan that can auto-adjust based on the current room temperature, or if all you really need is simply a cheap fan that's easy to assemble and gets the job done. Also, keep in mind that some fans are much heavier than others — so if you're looking for a fan that can easily be moved all around the house, you might not want to go with a heavy metal design.

Take a look at the five best pedestal fans below. All of them are highly rated on Amazon and come with fan-tastic customer reviews.
