Pros / Its bladeless design makes it the safest fan available.
Cons / You have to aim the remote directly at the base for it to work properly.
Verdict / Although this bladeless fan costs considerably more than other tower fans, its unique, safe design and powerful airflow make it one of the best tower fans available.
The Dyson AM07 combines improved airflow with the safety of bladeless fan technology to keep you cool and comfortable. It’s one of the most feature-rich tower fans in our lineup – and by far the most expensive. If you have funds to splurge, this is a great fan, but given the other valid choices at more economical prices, it might be hard to justify the cost.
Using a fan should be a simple, straightforward experience. The average tower fan, like the Artic Pro 2103, features just three speed settings. This Dyson fan has advanced and refined settings that let you to adjust to 10 different speeds. This allows you to find the perfect speed for any room in your house.
The tower fan includes a remote control with a convenient magnetic-storage feature. You simply place the remote on top of the fan and it stays put with a magnetic grip – a handy feature since remotes tend to disappear. When using the remote, however, you need a clear line of sight to the base of the fan to get the remote to recognize its signals. It was often a challenge getting it to work consistently during testing.
You can also set a timer to automatically shut off the fan at 15, 30 or 45 minutes or hourly increments up to nine hours in advance. This makes it one of the most customizable timers in the fans we tested. The timer function is a great way to save power, and it saves you the trouble of waking up to turn off the fan at night when the temperature finally drops.
One of the best features of this fan is that there is no danger of someone sticking a finger into it and being injured. Safety is not the only benefit of a bladeless tower fan. Unscrewing a grill on a dirty fan and vacuuming or wiping down the blades is a tedious and dirty job. With the Dyson AM07, a quick swipe along the exposed surface with a cloth or a duster is all you need.
This tower fan, while not completely silent, runs up to 60 percent quieter than other Dyson AM tower fans. At its highest setting we measured it at 61 dB. The machine can move up to 1,271 cfm (cubic feet of air per minute) at maximum speed. This is more than double the average cfm of most tower fans.
While the AM07 oscillates left and right at a 90-degree angle, it does lack the ability to tilt. This limits where you can aim the airflow. To tilt the machine, you would have to place an object beneath the base, making the unit unstable. Fortunately, this fan is easy to reposition, as it weighs a light 6.3 pounds, and the long 6.5-foot cord enables you to place the fan close to where you need cool air.
