Apologies in advance, but I couldn’t seem to find a fan recommended by you guys in the US that is available here. My training spot is outside in a carport (ie not a garage) which is open on the long side (and has a tin roof). Whilst I’m not in a super hot part of the country it was still touching 38 degrees here last week.
In the past I was using a tilt floor fan, which was OK but it died. Since then I have two small pedestal fans which is marginal at best. Soooo, do I pony up for a larger floor fan or something like this:
I have one of the SunAir 30cm High Velocity Fan based on GP Lama’s recommendation, I really like them as they are not too noisy but move a lot of air. the fans you have linked to… may cool you down but you may go deaf in the process
If its really hot you could run two of them with out too much noise
I’ve got something along these lines, although not that exact one. Not sure how it compares to those carpet blowers, but it can certainly shift some air. That might be what you had previously when you say a ‘tilt floor fan’?
I have the Vornado 660 in Sydney (got it at the end of last summer on discount). It’s pretty good but when the air temperature is 25 degrees there isn’t much you can do. Without AC I’m going to mostly train outside till it cools down a bit.
Also it doesn’t have mechanical controls so you need to have it close enough to reach (or have someone else to turn it up) - you can’t use a wifi enabled socket.
The blower style generates a focused stream of air, which you can direct at your chest. The standard ‘prop in a cage’ style is good for generally mixing the air in the room but bad for putting air flow on a specific place.
You just end up with a much higher airflow over your body.
