Best tower fans
1. Dyson Pure Cool™ TP04 Air Purifier Tower
There is no doubt that Dyson fans command a higher price than the average standing fan but it also comes with a host of features that makes you feel less of a pinch. The Dyson Pure Cool™ TP04 Air Purifier Tower Fan Black Nickel (available on Dyson) is a fan, purifier and cooler all in one. This sleek, bladeless fan is able to capture harmful pollutants (as small as PM 0.1), displays real time air quality and is able to project powerful airflow. Its oscillation angle is also adjustable — 45-degree to 350-degree and can project purified air throughout your room.
That’s not all, whatever the fan captures about air quality will be reflected on your Dyson Link app. Its easily changeable filters make this a low maintenance standing fan to invest in for the long run.
2. Honeywell HFY045 Tower Fan wtih Ionizer
Some of the best standing fans in Singapore come with ionisers. Ionisers help to purify the air of dust and other air pollutants. They work by creating negative ions which in turn attach themselves to positively charged ions like dust, bacteria and pollen in the air. These then bond together to create dense particles that can’t float in the air and as a result, fall to the ground. The Honeywell HFY045 Tower Fan w/Ionizer (available on POPULAR Official Store) combines the power of a tower fan with an ioniser. It comes with three speed functions and a LCD control display along with a remote control so you can adjust the speed of this sleek device from anywhere in the room.
3. Europace Tower Fan With Remote ETF 1129
Fans are one of the most common home appliances in many Singapore homes but nobody wants their living space to be cluttered with a chunky and obtrusive fan. This black, bladeless Europace Tower Fan With Remote ETF 1129 (available on Europace Official Store) will blend seamlessly with any home decor without taking up too much space. It’s also one of the best tower fans if you’ve little ones at home as its bladeless design means it’ll be safe for their curious, roaming fingers. This Europace fan boasts strong airflow, an ioniser feature plus a slim and trendy remote to boot.
Pedestal fans are still some of the best standing fans in Singapore you can rely on, especially if you’re on a tight budget. Some pedestal fans are also more powerful than tower fans due to their larger blades which offer more airflow output. You can also adjust the pedestal fan to suit your needs — by adjusting its height, titling the fan head or face the fan in one direction without oscillating it.
4. Iona 16″ Stand Fan
This IONA 16″ Stand Fan (available on Iona Official Store) retails below $50 and produces powerful airflow to cool your room down fast. It features three adjustable speed settings and weighs just over 5kg, meaning you can easily carry this Iona fan from room to room. You can increase its height by about 25cm (up to a maximum of 133cm) – perfect if you have kids who sleep on higher loft beds.
5. Tefal Turbo Silence Extreme Stand Fan VF5670/VF5670G0
Shh, some of the best pedestal standing fans can also be super quiet. Case in point: this Tefal Turbo Silence Extreme Stand Fan 16″ VF5670 (available on Tefal Official Store). It boasts just 35 db(A) — for context, normal conversation or background music is about 60 db(A). Plus, it doesn’t compromise on power. This means that this is one of the best standing fans in Singapore to buy if you’re looking for a quiet but powerful fan. Toggle between the Turbo Boost setting for a powerful airflow or select the Silent Night setting for a relaxing and quiet setting so you won’t be woken by the sound of the fan at night. It also has a handy remote control storage slot so you won’t lose your remote control ever again.

Furthermore, the stand of the fan can be disassembled and re-configured into a handy table fan.
