    Some people like sleeping in a hot room; some people like sleeping in a cold room. Whichever type you prefer (no judgement), I think we can all agree that trying to sleep during the steamy, muggy summer months is, like, a horrendous task barely any of us can accomplish successfully.

    Now, you may have an AC unit that you keep running all through the night...and bless if you are one of those people!!!! However, my large AC unit is LOUD and located directly next to my bed (thanks, studio apartment), so I really can't sleep with it on.

    I've TRIED, trust me, but it's literally so loud it keeps me up.

    Since I have to turn my AC off, trying to get decent rest during the summer months is difficult. That's where my reliable and lightweight Lasko fan comes in. It's tall, oscillating, quiet, and powerful. And it's available on Amazon for $59.99+.


    It's gotten me through countless nights.

    People love it. And why wouldn't they? It's SUPER quiet and since it's tall, it can easily reach over a bed. Reviewers also love its design and how sleek it can look in your home. I can keep it in the corner of my apartment when not in-use and it actually blends in.,

    Promising reviews:

    "Goodbye ugly box fan! Hello gorgeous cooling tower! This is the fan I've been dreaming of for years. It is whisper-quiet and unobtrusive, while pushing out a lot of airflow. I was surprised at how tall it was, but anything smaller probably wouldn't be as effective in my kitchen/dining room/living room combined space. I am so happy with this purchase!" —Just Another Mom

    "Exactly what we wanted! My husband loves this fan. It has everything he needs: remote, oscillator, timer, different fan speeds, and it is the right height (perfect for keeping you cool while you sleep). The color is a nice medium gray and looks much better than a black one. It is very quiet for a fan this size. No clackety-clack, no unusual motor sounds, nothing at all that is unpleasant. Enough white noise to be comfortable. He can direct the air flow directly on him instead of both of us." —Lyn

    It's easy to put together, a great price, and overall a high-performing fan from a well-known brand. And trust me, when you're heating up under the covers and just want a freaking breeze, you'll be thankful you have this one.

    Did I mention it has three fan speeds, a timer, and a remote control?

    "Wow, do I love this fan. I live in an adorable apartment with no central AC and only ceiling fans. I was actually looking to purchase a wall unit, but for some reason decided to check out a floor fan. I could not be happier with this and am really happy I purchased it. Southern California summers are hot! But within 10 minutes of turning this on, the living room significantly cooled down. The fan is also light enough to transfer from room to room if need be, but considering the price point I just may buy another one instead. I highly recommend this! Also, it took all of five minutes to assemble the base and the power light is a tiny blue light." —Fay

    "I purchased this newest version recently and am LOVING the concept all over again! It's a quiet fan, looks nice, saves space, oscillates or not (your choice), was easy to put together, and comes with a REMOTE CONTROL!!! Last night I had it sitting in the dining room facing the living room and even on low it was stirring the curtains behind me on the other side of the living room. This is my third Lasko fan (the one in the garage has been going strong for five years now) and I don't think I'll ever buy another brand. Lasko to me means good price, good functionality, excellent reliability and easy to put together."DeliaCamillia

    So what are you waiting for? It's time to beat the heat with a Lasko fan. Get it from Amazon for $59.99+ (available in two styles).
