As the summer months progress, so does the heat. There is nothing worse than sitting in stale hot air while working. Meetings, conference calls, internet, emails are known to be productivity killers at the workplace. However, rising temperature strongly impacts the level of productivity in the workplace as well. Having a small fan at your desk can help circulate the air to help fight the unwanted hot stuffy feeling you get during the summer months. Finding the right fan for your area may be overwhelming. Office360 has narrowed down our 3 favorite types of office fans to help make your choice a little easier.

Temperature in the Workplace Impacts Productivity

Tower Fans

Tower fans are great to keep a whole room cool. They come in a variety of sleek, stylish designs and are easy to use in the office. They are known as one of the quietest fan styles to ensure the noise won’t bother co-workers. Some people even say the noise they do produce acts in the same way a “white-noise” machine would eliminate other distracting noises.

USB & Battery-Powered Fans

Battery-powered / USB powered fans are great for office workers. Most of these are designed to fold up and be stored easily. Many of them are designed to be powerful enough to keep you cool but also stay quiet enough as to not disturb your work neighbors. The ones that are USB powered can plug into a computer, a USB hub, a power bank (portable battery), or a wall outlet using a USB adapter to give them power. This is super convenient for office spaces!

Compact Personal Fans

Compact personal fans are ideal for workers who need a more powerful fan for their desk. They are a perfectly sized fan to keep you cool without taking up valuable workspace. Many are designed to be between 4 – 6 inches and tilt to help direct the air where you need. They often also have different speed options that allow you to find the breeze that’s just right for you.
