It’s amazing how I discovered the Vornado family of air circulators. I moved into my new apartment in February and the first thing I knew I wanted to do was put in a huge beautiful ceiling fan.
As many already know, ceiling fans do help with heat and cooling so you can use them all year round. Even though ceiling fans aren’t as common in New Jersey as they are in the south, when I lived in North Carolina for a period, I got used to them and wanted one here.
Well turns out my ceilings are cement. I got two quotes and both came to about $800 to install the ceiling fan with the proper drilling etc. for my type of ceiling. I was brokenhearted.
I have one of those air conditioners that stick out of the wall under the window and it’s been in the building probably since it was built. It’s not horrible but it takes a little time to heat up.
When I moved in it was winter and I noticed how long it took to warm the living area which is open to the kitchen and entryway. It was driving me crazy and I knew it would be costly to heat the entire winter season.
I purchased the Vornado large air circulator first and it immediately did the trick. I put it on low and pointed it toward the ceiling and put the heat on low. My entire space is warm and comfortable very quickly just as if I had central air. It’s so much more than a fan. This little thing is a dynamo. And I ended up not having to spend close to $1000 for a ceiling fan installation that would have been a pain in the ass to remove and take with me if I decide to move.
I genuinely thank heavens I found this little dynamo. It’s everything a neat freak like me could want in a unit. It’s super easy to clean, really moves the air and keeps my home comfortable all year long, not just in the warmer months.
I’ve been so impressed with the Vornado family of products that I now own 3 – the large air circulator, a mini desktop model and a space heater.
I especially appreciate how efficiently I’m cooling and heating my apartment these days. I continue to get letters like these from my electric company, letting me know what a difference an investment in a good appliance can make over time.
I tell everyone I know about how happy I am with my Vornado air circulators and heaters.
