Okay let's get right into the review:
Even at the lowest setting the fan blasts out some major wind. Most of the time I never really increase the speed, but sometimes after working out the highest speed is a beast!
The fan's weight is on the light side but not flimsy or falls over. It actually is heavy enough to not fall over. On the down side like any fan there is dust which collects, but a simple wipe down every other week should take of that.
If you want to increase the speed, be prepared for a gust of wind like a hurricane! Its loud though, but I haven't found a fan which spins this fast and is not as or louder as this one is. I wouldn't say its any louder than a typical fan.
I personally give the Avalon 16 inch fan two thumbs up. It's been there with me for a few years now and still functions as it did on day one.
Question: Is it quiet?
Answer: On low or med it very quiet on high it’s louder but not terrible. It’s the best fan we have bought in a while I sure hope it lasts.
Question: Can you use batteries on this or is it just a wall plug
Answer: It is powered by a wall plug only.
Question: What is the watt rating?
Answer: The label on the side does not list the watt rating. But it lists the fan as 120 volts and .43 amps, so I figure that equals 51.6 watts.
Question: Does this fan come apart easily for cleaning??
Answer: Looks like you remove eight easily accessible phillips screws and the cage comes apart.
Question: Can this be used in car for backseat
Answer: Goodness no!
Question: Does the stand have a spot on it to allow for wall mounting? Does the stand tilt back that far so it could blow out straight if attached to the wall?
Answer: The base is made out of plastic and I doubt that it could be securely mounted to a wall. The knob on each side of the fan can be loosened to allow you to adjust the direction of air flow. Hope this info helps.
Question: Hi – what is the size of the blade, from end to end? I thought I saw somewhere that it’s 9″ but want to confirm. Thanks!
Answer: The blades aren’t nearly that long. It has five blades and each is approximately 5 and half inches from the hub to the tip. The fan has three speeds, is quiet and moves a lot of air for its size. It replaced a much larger floor fan that I had that finally wore out. Hope this helps.
Question: What is the “UL” listing – damp, wet or dry location only?
Answer: dry only
Question: can this be mounted on a wall???
Answer: i would say yes – but not easily. base is more for flat table-type surfaces.
Question: I like my fan to be powerful if I’m hot will this make me cold?
Answer: It will definitely make you cooler but not cold. Not too cold.
Question: How long is the cord on this fan?
Answer: Approximately 65 inches.
Question: how would this compare to a Vornado fan room air mover?
Answer: This fan is very strong. I keep it on low, and it gives me plenty of air.
Question: Is it digital or mechanical? If the power goes out, a mechanical fan will come back on by itself when the power comes back on. Digital fans won’t.
Answer: mechanical :D not digital … i believe i love this fan!
Question: What are the dimensions of the base of the fan? (And is it flat?)
Answer: The base at its widest points is 19″ x 6″. As you can see from the picture it is contoured. It is flat sitting on 4 small rubber feet. If you turn it over and look it is a molded shell that is mostly hollow. It sits firmly on my wooden floor and does not vibrate or wobble in the least.
Question: what Is the air output, or CFM, of this fan, so i can compare it to other products
Answer: Larry, I looked through the owner’s manual, No mention of CFM. This 16″ fan air output is a good buy. The price has decreased since I bought it a week ago.
Question: whereabouts is the speed controller located at?
Answer: It is a large rotary knob directly in the center of the back of the fan.
