I should start this post by saying...I don't have an air conditioner. I've been putting it off as long as possible, but now with temps reaching over 100 degrees F here in NYC, I seem more crazy than economical.
To cool down, I've been looking at fans. Yes. Looking. It cools me.
Home Depot offers fans for the industrial type.
Macy's offers an alternative from the same old plastic white fan.
The original. Buy at Urban Outfitters.
