With temperatures in the 90's this week, I'm suddenly reminded that summer is practically here for California. Warm days have begun!
We have several hot spots in our south-facing home, so planning my day accordingly helps us avoid the need to start running our A/C this early in the year. But ultimately, having a portable fan is the best option to keep cool indoors on these warm days so I can continue my daily tasks, uninterrupted by the heat.
I received complimentary product for review purposes. All opinions are 100% my own.
Let's face it. Plugging in a desk fan saves a lot more energy than running the A/C. When given the opportunity to review the Ozeri Brezza III Dual Oscillating 10" Desk Fan, I jumped at the chance. We use it mostly in our schoolroom/office and bedroom. It has a ton of great features, and even has a remote.
This fan moves air with power and great efficacy when using it's dual oscillation options. The Brezza III can rotate from side to side or even up and down. Choose to run both of these simultaneously, one at a time or neither.
There are four air speeds: Quiet, 1-low, 2-medium and 3-high. With our old desk fan, I had only two options, and both were incredibly loud and not even that powerful. With the Brezza III, the Quiet mode is really quiet and has just a slight white noise effect (which is helpful if you're using it in your bedroom as you sleep). Level 1 is still relatively quiet, while 2 and 3 actually get progressively louder. I haven't found the need the go past a 2 very often though, and typically just stick with Quiet.
This fan can be programmed to turn off after up to four hours. I haven't needed to use this feature, but I imagine it would be helpful in certain situations.
The Brezza III can be controlled via the control panel, or remote. It's such an easy fan to quickly figure out, and so it really doesn't require much explanation. Simply press the desired button to turn on or off the desired feature. You may notice the horizontal slot on the control panel above. This is where you can place the remote so you don't lose it!
The inclusion of a remote is one of my favorite features of the Brezza III. Since we took the ceiling out of our bedroom and haven't replaced it yet, I've been using the Brezza III at night to circulate the air and keep us cool (opening windows is not a great option during allergy season!). I can place the fan across the room and still control it as needed without getting up. PERFECT.
My one and only desire for the next Brezza model is that it would have an option to turn off the loud beep that occurs when you turn the fan on and off, or press any button at all. At night, that's a quick way to disturb light sleepers. In an office setting, I imagine it might bother some co-workers.
The Brezza III is a full-featured desk fan with all the desired bells and whistles every small fan should have, without sacrificing power. It's been perfect for my family as we move to warmer weather in the coming months. When combining the high speed and dual oscillation features, cooling off a room is quick and easy.
You can purchase the Ozeri Brezza III Dual Oscillating 10" Desk Fan on Amazon.com for $58.95.
