Unbiased Review and Ratings Based
on 302 Consumer Experiences
In addition to producing cooling air circulation, fans often generate effective "white noise" which can encourage relaxation and sleep by reducing or eliminating disruptive sounds such as traffic, barking dogs, noisy neighbors, and weather.
The main competitor to fans used for sleeping are sound / white noise machines. Fans are the better choice if you want air circulation in addition to white noise; sound machines are better if you seek only white noise.
Ratings below are based on the experiences of owners who use the fans mostly or entirely for sleeping. Your own personal evaluation may differ. Links go to Amazon.com.
