When on the hunt for a great fan for your room, the best window fans stand out because they save-space and limit your energy bill (when compared to air conditioners), without you having to sacrifice on power or cooling capabilities. But, knowing what to look for in a window fan is tricky, and not all of the information manufacturers put out there is 100 percent honest. So, what makes for a great window fan?
The best window fans are dual, reversible fans, which are generally superior to their single fan counterparts. That's because with two-fan designs, as one fan pushes the warm air out, the other fan simultaneously cools air from outside and funnels it back into your space. While some single fans can work well, you'll have to sift through a lot more subpar options that take longer to cool, and can't work as efficiently as dual fans. That's why all three of the window fans on this roundup feature twin, reversible designs.
From there, your decision will come down to extras you might be looking for: ultra-quiet performance; a remote control to operate it; or a budget-friendly price tag. But, to help you narrow your search, I've done the research and can say that these are the three best window fans for the money.
