Lasko 3540 Cyclone 20-Inch Pivoting Floor Fan with Remote Control

On the weekend, I started finding it uncomfortably warm at night....particularly in the area under the headgear of my CPAP mask. I was resorting to turning the thermostat down.

It isn't that warm and humid yet....could get really expensive if I'm going to need to do this all summer. Temporarily I have inverted the sleep time temperature range on my set-back thermostat. Normally, its not as cool when I'm sleeping. Now its cooler than any other time.

While I was laying there waiting for the A/C to have its effect, the air purifier kicked itself to high and it made a slight improvement in comfort. Years ago when I lived in Medicine Hat, and didn't have air conditioning...I had floor fans (TurboAire) that I pointed at the ceiling to circulate air and make things tolerable. I had given them away a few moves ago....

But, I thought that maybe I should get something like it ASAP. I had been looking previously, but it wasn't a rush then...so I had put it off, because I wanted to find the same brand as I used to have....but it wasn't coming up in my internet searches (partly because I couldn't remember the brand name).....and because I was looking for a fan, rather than an 'air circulator'

However, now that I was in a hurry to get one....I looked to Amazon Prime to have it come my way on a particular day when I was going to be home for other reasons.

It was hard trying to find out if the fan would tilt to the full blow into ceiling orientation (a video review of the Lasko 3540 didn't show it tilting more than a few clicks up) But, after narrowing down the choices that were sold by Amazon.com and in stock, so that I would get it today. I settled on this one.

Part of the reason was the remote control and another part was that it seemed to have only a two-prong plug. And, I crossed my fingers that it would go to the straight up orientation.

Well, the fan arrived, and it did have a two-prong plug and the 90 degree tilt range did include straight up.

Yes, it will tilt to point straight up!

However, the video review had mentioned that it makes a beep when turning on. What it didn't mention was that it makes a beep when plugged in (or when power returns). It is one thing that it defaults to off, but when turned on it defaults to high (regardless of what speed was used before). And, lots more beeping.

Not really the kind of fan for a quiet bedroom setting. I have a long two-conductor extension cord which goes from my PowerSource 400 to the Air Purifier...so I plugged the fan into that for now.

I plan to rearrange my bedroom layout (and some more storage pieces), so things'll move around. Perhaps another PowerSource 400 is called for, or perhaps I'll get that PowerPack 600HD to run the CPAP during outages...and leave the PowerSource 400 for everything else that I want to avoid power outages to....

So far the bedroom does feel a bit cooler now. But, guess we'll see the impact when I'm in bed and the bedroom door is closed. :zzz:

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
