Staying cool can be a challenge on a hot day, but with a tower fan you can cool off a room in less time than a traditional rotary fan. Ozeri Tower Fans, like the Ozeri 3x and the Ultra 42, can help you achieve and maintain your desired room temperature.
Both the 3x and the Ultra 42 offer three variable speeds: low, medium and high. There are three preprogrammed airflow patterns, designed to help you sleep, relax or simply be comforted. The Ozeri 3x and Ultra 24 oscillate with 90 degrees of coverage. This is a standard oscillation angle and is perfect for placement in the corner of a living room or bedroom.
You can set a timer on these tower fans to automatically shut off the power, enabling you to sleep through the night without having to get up and turn the fan off. The LED lights are very bright on the 3x and may be annoying to some people. Both fans include a remote control and feature built-in storage on the fan for the remote.
The 3x tower fan features a touch-sensitive control panel that allows you to control each of the three fans individually. This makes it possible to find a great airflow rate to keep cool. The Ultra 42 has traditional push buttons with an LED display with a light-dimming night mode. You can also adjust the height of the tower fan from 32 inches to 42 inches, enabling you to aim the airflow over low beds and chairs.
The Ozeri Ultra 42 weighs 12 pounds and has an integrated carrying handle for ease of use. It stands 38 inches tall and is just more than 7 inches wide and 9 inches deep. The Ozeri 3x is several inches larger, at 44 inches tall and 12 inches wide but is only 3 inches deep, giving it a sleeker look than the Ultra 42.
Ozeri does not have a listed phone number to contact customer service with, but they do respond to emails. Their site does not have a FAQs page, live chat or links for owner manual downloads. It is disappointing that their customer service options are limited. Both fans come with a standard limited one-year warranty.
While Ozeri Tower Fans can help keep you cool, they tend to run louder than our higher-ranked tower fans. Fortunately, the 3x and Ultra 42 include programmable timers and are aesthetically pleasing. If you are looking for an affordable tower fan and can sleep through loud fan noise, the Ozeri Tower Fans are worth considering.
