You can't deny the relaxing capability of a fan. Its subtle sound rocks me to sleep and keeps me comfortable all night long. Many of us can't fall asleep without a fan, and while air conditioners and cooling sheets can help regulate body temperature, there's something about a fan's white noise and subtle breeze that can put you to bed like a lullaby. Standing fans in particular are great, because they can be placed anywhere — the living room, bedroom, or kitchen — and can oscillate from side to side to get all corners of the room.
Whether you're looking for a cooling fan, a cordless fan, an air purifying fan, a fan with a remote, or a fan that's quiet enough for you to fall asleep to at night, we found various fan options you'll want to keep in your home. From brands like Dyson to Honeywell and more, these standing fans are a safe bet for summer and beyond. Shop our favorite picks on the market ahead.

Pick up the Smartmi Pedestal Fan ($150) and place it anywhere in your home. The smart fan has a rechargeable battery that can run for up to three hours. Use it outside on your patio or keep it in your bedroom. It has an app that can control the fan's speed, oscillation, timer, and more.
If you have a problem with allergies, the Dyson Pure Cool ($420) will change your life. The fan's filtration system captures gases and particles such as pollen, bacteria, and pet dander to keep the air purified in your home. Its filter is quick and easy to change and notifies you when it's time to swap it out.
What makes the Dreo Tower Fan ($78, originally $90) stand out from the rest is its powerful motor, which distributes airflow around the room and cools you down. It has six speeds and three modes — normal, natural, and sleep — to ensure that you get the best experience. Its clear LED display allows you to track the room temperature, fan speed, timer settings, and more.
If you want to cool down your whole room, it's important that you invest in a fan that oscillates. While most tower fans oscillate at 65 degrees, the Wind Curve Bladeless Tower Fan ($75) oscillates at a full 90 degrees so you can feel its breeze in every corner of your room. It also includes an automatic timer and nighttime mode to ensure it stays quiet while you sleep.
