Fans are essential in hot weather, but they can represent a pretty steep ongoing cost. While a tower fan is great for cooling a room, sometimes you need a fan on your desk to cool you down ASAP. Buying two fans just for one room can feel pretty excessive. 

The WOOZOO Pedestal Standing Fan us perfect for this. It features a height-adjustable base that converts from a pedestal to a desk fan. 

Twelve fan speed settings plus five modes make the fan a versatile choice for homes, offices, and more. Other notable features include its 360-degree oscillation capabilities and its overall quiet operation. 

I thoroughly tested the WOOZOO Pedestal Standing Fan to see how it compared to the best fans. I evaluated the fan’s packaging, the assembly process, and its overall quality and design. I also tested all of the fan’s speeds and modes to determine how well it performs in the heat and whether it’s worth buying.

The assembly process was simple and intuitive. The fan’s pole features guide pins that are inserted into the base, and then the fan head fits onto the pole in the same way. The remote control holder easily snaps onto the pole. There are no tools needed for assembly. While the assembly was so simple that I really didn’t need to refer to the instructions, they are detailed and feature clear diagrams for each step. 

The fan’s pole can be removed, and you can plug the fan head directly into the base, converting it into a desktop or window fan. This is easy to do and increases the fan’s versatility. To remove the pole, you must push a button on the back of the fan, meaning you can carry it by the fan head without the pole separating. The table fan measures 21 inches tall, and the floor height fan with the rod insert measures 36 inches tall. 

The handle is well-designed and positioned. Since the fan weighs just six pounds, it’s easy to pick up and carry. 


The fan has 12 speeds, with 1 being a weak wind and 12 being a strong wind. Pressing the - and + buttons on the remote or the fan base changes the speed, and the setting is displayed on the LCD screen of the base.

Impressively, the fan is nearly silent when operating on speeds 1 and 2. On speed 1, the fan noise only reached 42.2 decibels. On speed 5, the noise reached 54.2 decibels, and on speed 12 it reached 64.7 decibels. This is remarkably quiet for a fan. At speed 12, the fan creates minimal noise, and while it was on its lowest settings, I repeatedly forgot that it was operating and left the room.

The fan is powerful, too. When on speed 1, the airflow could be felt 15 feet away. Speed 12’s airflow carried 24 feet. Other fans are stronger, sure, but this is pretty impressive power for a fan this size, especially one that can sit on a desk.

This fan features not only a timer off option, which will shut the fan off after the designated time, but also a timer on function, which will turn the fan on at the set time. Setting both timers is easy, and you can choose from half-hour increments. The timer off function can be set from 30 minutes to eight hours, and the timer on function can be set from 30 minutes to four hours.

Once the timer is set, the base display shows the remaining time left. The timer setting worked reliably when tested, and could be a helpful way to minimize energy usage while still helping to circulate air as needed.

The rhythm mode creates an airflow that resembles natural wind. It has a slow pulse to it, which creates a somewhat soothing effect. This setting would be a nice background effect to a small gathering or other group setting, but I found it a bit distracting when reading or writing in a quiet room.

The sleep mode can be paired with any of the 12 speeds, as well as with the oscillation settings. Once set, the airflow gradually decreases and then stops after two hours. The LED base display doesn’t turn off with the sleep mode, but it also generates minimal light, so this isn’t necessarily an issue. I didn’t find it distracting in my otherwise dark room.

When set to the Auto mode, the fan automatically detects the room’s temperature and adjusts the speed according to the temperature. I found the speed selected by the auto mode to be a little high for my preferences, but this setting would be helpful if you want to cool off a room without having to set or monitor the fan.

Another fantastic feature is that this fan features a 360-degree oscillation option, as well as a left and right oscillation feature. Each is operated with a single press of a different button on the base or the remote.

The left and right oscillation is fairly standard, and the fan head turns 90 degrees each direction. It’s useful in cooling a room and I chose this setting when trying to move cool air into my home from an open window. 

The 360 degree oscillation is an interesting setting that I haven’t seen in other fans. Once engaged, the fan head travels in a 360-degree pattern, but its angle changes, too. In the middle of its circle, the fan head is vertical, before returning to its 90-degree angle in the front of the circle and repeating the pattern. This feature seems to move air throughout a room more effectively than a simple left and right oscillation. 

The only downside to the oscillation settings is that they don’t give you the ability to really adjust the fan head vertically. This is a pretty big downside. There is no option to direct the fan head down past being parallel with the floor. If you want to adjust it up, you have to run the oscillation setting and then pause the setting when the head is at the angle that you want. A little more versatility in choosing the fan’s angles would give more precise cooling options. 

Care and maintenance

 WOOZOO notes that the pole brace and base can be wiped with a soft cloth. You can use a cloth soaked in diluted detergent to remove stubborn stains, then remove the detergent with a wrung cloth. 

The front grille can be removed after removing the four screws that hold it in place. You can clean away dust with a cleaner, but the fan blade itself cannot be removed. 

WOOZOO recommends that if you won’t use the fan for an extended period of time, you should disassemble it and cover it with a plastic bag. Store the fan in a box and keep the box in a dry space. 

How does the WOOZOO Pedestal Standing Fan compare to competitors?

 In addition to the WOOZOO Pedestal Standing Fan, we have tested and reviewed several tower fans. The Seville Classics UltraSlimline tower fan, available at Walmart also features a timer and oscillates 95 degrees. While the Seville Classics fan has a lower price point than the WOOZOO fan, it lacks the WOOZOO’s versatility. The WOOZOO fan not only oscillates, but features 360-degree oscillation. And, compared to the Seville Classics fan’s four speed settings, the WOOZOO fan has 12 speeds. 

The Honeywell QuietSet Whole Room tower fan, available at Walmart is a midrange fan with eight settings. It features a very simple remote and is suited for a midsize or small room. The WOOZOO fan offers more settings and a more robust, yet compact, remote. With its many fan settings and multiple oscillation options, the WOOZOO fan can do a thorough job of cooling a medium room. 

Keep in mind that the WOOZOO fan also converts to a table fan, making it far more versatile than any standard tower fan. 

Should you buy the WOOZOO Pedestal Standing Fan?

The WOOZOO Pedestal Standing Fan is an excellent option for homes, offices, and other settings where versatility and efficient cooling matters. Its quiet operation at the lower fan settings is impressive, so it won’t interrupt meetings, conference calls, or your favorite TV show. The multiple modes give you plenty of cooling choices, and the ability to convert from a pedestal to a desktop fan make it a great choice for your various cooling needs.  

Testing process

I tested the WOOZOO Pedestal Standing Fan in a home environment. I examined the packaging materials used, the assembly process, and the overall quality of the fan. We tested all of the fan’s speeds and modes, measured the noise generated, and evaluated its overall performance.
