The Lasko Whole Room C27100 tower fan is an air circulator that wants for nothing when it comes to power. This is an oscillating tower fan that can spread air across the whole room at three different speeds with ease. On low, the Lasko can push air at 1,871 CFM (cubic feet per minute). This is more CFM than many of the best tower fans on high. When it is on high, you get up to 2,421 CFM, which is exceptional by any tower fan's standards, and it's a good setting for cooling large rooms such as a living or family room. Unfortunately, the noise increases a lot with the fan on high.
The fan is housed in a hardened, break-resistant plastic and stands 26.5 inches high. It is 8.83 inches wide and 11.3 inches deep. Even though this fan is built stronger than most, Lasko has designed it to be relatively light: It weighs 11 pounds. The built-in handle also makes this tower fan easy to move and reposition. You can use it either as a floor fan, which is quite common for tower fan owners, or as a standing fan on a higher surface.
This tower fan includes an easy-to-use remote control with a little storage slot on the rear of the fan so you do not lose it – which is particularly easy to do with these little remotes. The controls for the fan are located on the top of the unit and include a button to start the rotation of the louvers. Louvers are similar to window blinds, and when you choose to rotate them while using this tower fan, they can provide a more natural airflow to your room. The Lasko also comes with an electronic timer that you can set for one to seven hours.
Lasko is a giant in the fan industry and provides good customer support by phone or email, but does not offer live chat. Support representatives generally respond to emails within 24 hours. If you lose your user manual, you can download it from Lasko's website. This fan comes with a one-year limited warranty.
The Lasko Whole Room C27100 Air Circulator is a serious wind-producing machine that deserves consideration if you are looking to cool a large area such as a garage or a basement and are not worried about what your fan looks or sounds like. For all its power, this tower fan is light and easy to move around, so if you are looking for a heavy-duty tower fan that is still quite portable, this model is a good one to consider.
