Anyone have a recommendation for a fan? I have a small loft space that I use as my home office and it’s been getting warm up there even with the window open. I know Dyson is recommended but it’s so expensive so I’m trying to find alternatives.

Get an oscillating tower fan, doesnt need much space and keeps cool. Home Depot/Lowe’s has lots of great selections.

I second this. I've always loved these fans and they're pretty quiet.

We bought a Dyson fan, it works well but it’s nothing special. If you just want good air circulation, I agree it’s not worth the money. Honestly, I’ve been happy with whatever fan I can buy off the shelf at Target that fits the space.

Cheap Amazon fan

I would recommend a Vornado ZIPPI desk fan - almost silent, safe (fabric 'blades") long lasting and for me, a life saver.

Vornado moves a lot of air. But loud. Dyson is quiet. (Have both)

Anyone use one of those that do both heating and cooling?

I have a flat honeywell window fan that was about $25 on Amazon. It doesn't have to go in a window. It oscillates and is basically a vornado knockoff. Love it.

$18 box fan in the window.
