We all expect heat and humidity during the summer months, but the heatwave sweeping the U.S. (and even parts of Europe) right now is next level. Here in NYC, we are bracing for six straight days of temperatures in the mid-90s. And down in Texas? They’re likely to hit 100! Yikes!

As nice as an air conditioner is when it’s super hot, sometimes it can make a room too cool. This is especially true at night when it can be hard to get comfortable or fall into a deep sleep because the cold AC air is freezing you.

Fortunately, there are some powerful fans out there that can keep you comfortably cool, even on hot summer days and nights. I swear by Dreo’s new Pilot Max 120-Degree Oscillating Tower Fan available on Amazon.

Despite my best efforts, I can’t sleep with the AC on in my apartment. When I do, I inevitably wake up with a headache, and I just don’t ever feel well-rested because I was too cold at night. When I switched to this Dreo Pilot Max 120-Degree Oscillating Tower Fan, I was immediately impressed that it kept me cool on an 80-degree summer night, even with a blanket on top of me.

I also appreciate how quiet this tower fan is, given that I use it at night. It’s not completely silent (no fan I’ve ever encountered truly is), but the light whirring sound doesn’t make it hard to fall asleep or drown out the sound of the TV or other people talking when it’s on.

The Dreo Pilot Max 120-Degree Oscillating Tower Fan has nine different fan settings — plenty of options depending on how cool you want to be. When I have the fan blowing directly on me, the third setting is perfect. I really never need to go up to the highest two settings unless I’ve just come in from a long walk and need to cool down immediately.

This is one of Dreo’s newest fans, and shoppers on Amazon already give it lots of praise. The Dreo Pilot Max 120-Degree Oscillating Tower Fan currently has 4.7 out of 5 stars and many positive reviews.

“I bought this fan to replace my Dyson fan that broke and I’m super happy I did. I like this fan more than any fan I’ve ever owned,” one shopper wrote in their review.

Another shopper called this fan the “best tower fan on Amazon” and said it “finally does everything right that every other tower fan sucks at! I’ve owned many tower fans over the years and all have been a giant disappointment. This fan is affordable and actually does everything you would want it to. No noise. No lights. Just blows cool air where you want when you want it. “

If you’re struggling to stay cool this summer, a high-quality fan is a worthy investment. Whether you have AC in your living space or not, you’ll use this Dreo Pilot Max 120-Degree Oscillating Tower Fan often because it really is top of the line.
