Pros: Efficient cooling system, very powerful for a small fan, price is right, attractive design
Cons: High speed causes windy conditions in small office
My five star rating of the Holmes HAOF-90 3-Speed Blizzard Table Fan is easy to explain. When temperatures soar, and comfort levels drop to the I cannot stand this freaking heat a minute longer status, it is high time to go in search of the perfect desktop fan.
This is exactly what happened when I purchased my great performance BLIZZARD fans. Several years ago, the northeastern United States was embroiled in the midst of a heatwave, with sweltering temperatures maintaining an average of ninety-eight degrees over a three week period!
First, we purchased an air conditioning unit for the master bedroom, with the entire family doing some intense bonding in this one room. Ha! I knew that this would never work for long though! After all, when the bedtime hour approached, it was time to boot out the little ones. We heard whines, sighs and cries of mercy from our children who did not want to leave our frigid bedroom to retire to their humid bedroom conditions. That is, until I brought home three Holmes HAOF-90 3-Speed Blizzard Table Fans!
This sleek portable dark gray fan is designed to easily fit on any flat surface like a desktop, table top or counter top. My son placed his fan atop his chest of drawers, pointing toward the middle of his bed. He set the fan to the oscillating position, affording him delightful sweeps of cool, cool air throughout the night.
Holmes has designed this fan with the highest level of comfort in mind. The blades are short and rounded and the fan design is compact. It is these features that significantly improved air circulation throughout each room, throughout the house.
Holmes HAOF-90 3-Speed Blizzard Table Fan also has an adjustable-tilt fan head for directing airflow exactly where you need it! My daughter placed her BLIZZARD on the table nearest the computer, where she spent a great deal of her waking hours. She opened several windows for cross ventilation and pointed the fan in an upward tilt, providing an intense cooling effect.
Since there are three speed settings the medium speed selection is just right for days when the room air is warm yet not intensely uncomfortable. It tends to be exactly what is needed without having a chill in the air and yet sufficient enough that it won't change the air temperature drastically.
The lowest speed is ideal for keeping youngsters and older babies comfortable while they sleep peacefully.
Although my family has not used this next feature, the possibility for wall mounting is available. It is interesting to note, however, that the Holmes HAOF-90 3-Speed Blizzard Table Fan doesn't come with screws or brackets to mount it on the wall! If one is handy, I suspect that the mounting job would be simple enough.
If you strongly dislike profuse sweating, discomfort caused by too high room temperatures, and huge bulky fans, I highly recommend getting yourself a small, compact table top fan. Get yourself a Holmes HAOF-90 3-Speed Blizzard Table Fan!
I just love my little BLIZZARD! It is ideal for cooling off small spaces due to the powerful grill design. Air seems to be precisely directed to blow through the grill in neatly directed ways. The design of the vents in this durable hard plastic fan is frankly, made for cooling, unlike other models that are not only cheap but just seem to toss the warm air around.
If you are bothered by the heat, either uncomfortable high outdoor temperatures, or unbearable poorly circulated indoor thermostat-controlled heating, the Holmes HAOF-90 3-Speed Blizzard Table Fan is an excellent solution for your cooling woes!
It's like bringing a small wonderful whirlwind into the most arid desert-like conditions! This BLIZZARD offers three speeds for your cooling down comfort. Even on the lowest speed, you will feel an immediate difference in the temperature of your room.
That's not too shabby for a compact and affordable desktop fan.
Can you tell that I am quite pleased to recommend the Holmes HAOF-90 3-Speed Blizzard Table Fan? It feels as if we are in for yet another hot and humid summer season. I am grateful to be the proud owner of several of these long-lasting, quality fans. I know one household that won't fall victim to the blazing heat and high temperatures this year!
I recommend the use of this fan if you are not sensitive to background noise. Although my family and I have no concerns with the motorized sounds that emanates from the Holmes HAOF-90 3-Speed Blizzard Table Fan, you may find that on the higher speeds the hum of the circulating blades may become a touch bothersome.
So, what are you waiting for? Get up right now and go buy yourself a Holmes HAOF-90 3-Speed Blizzard Table Fan! Many stores offer great end of season sales on this fabulous fan that is super for year round use!
