pedestal fan

Pedestal fans come in a wide range of prices, starting from as low as $10 all the way up to $100-$200.

How much would you be willing to spend on a good quality pedestal fan for the summer season?

$60 maybe. In my experience the really cheap ones tend to fall over.
absolutely. not only fall over, you have to stand right in front of them to merely get a breeze out of them, even on their highest setting. On a hot day, they become next to useless anyways!
Agree with Jennifer. Anywhere from $50 to $60 can get a decent pedestal fan. We have one fan that cost us $80 (Bunnings) and it is absolutely wonderful. A bit loud, but the noise actually drains out the other noises around the house and provides a lulling humm in the background. Another $50 high velocity pedestal fan is also doing its job wonderfully (although both are quite heavy which makes it difficult to transport them from one place to another if required to move).
Well now. If I was living somewhere seriously hot then I would take a deep breath and invest in a Dyson Hot and Cool Fan, currently retailing at about £300 in the UK..... very pricey but supposedly a wonderful fan.
WOW!! Wouldn't that almost be the same as stretching a bit further and just buying an air con? :)
I honestly prefer ceiling fans the best.
Aircon can't be fitted in all rooms.... and when we were thinking about it, we were renting so aircon wasn't an option anyway! Ceiling fans move the air in the room but they don't cool it. The Dyson fan cools the air but without blades, so it is very efficient and very safe. It could also be used in the winter as a portable heater.
The $200 would need to be pretty good.

I would do what I did a few years ago, have several $40 Fans around the home.
Get the air moving.

I was going to say no more than $50 but, upon seeing Jennifer and Happy Mom's responses, perhaps I should bump it up to $70. Definitely not a cent over.

No more than 100.
Not a lot as nowadays those others without blades are out and far safer.
I still prefer air conditioning to fans and these pedestal fans are very noisy.
I would certainly not buy one for $10 as would not trust it.

$0. For whatever reason I really don't like these! It might be because they take up too much space and I live in a small house with small children!
Have a 'Sunbeam' pedestal fan in tv viewing room. Paid about $60 for it at 'Good Guys'.
Very versatile & really cools room down. It's 'figure of 8' oscillation sees to that.
