NewAir AF-520B Misting Fan Review

 I was provided the below mentioned products in order to provide a review.

     Here in Arizona it really does feel like we skip right over Spring.  We get a good couple weeks and then the heat arrives.  We have already broken some heat records this year.  When the heat comes it becomes difficult to get outside and play.  As much as the boys don't really care about how hot it is, I don't like them exposed to such high heat.  We are always looking for ways to get outside at cooler parts of the day, or ways to make the outside cooler.  We have discussed getting a misting system, but it just seems a little complicated.  When I heard about the NewAir AF-520B Misting Fan I was immediately intrigued.  I thought this might be the solution to our problem.



     I received the NewAir Misting fan recently and with heat already in the 80's we have had some opportunity to try it out. My husband put it together while I was at work, but he says it was really easy to assemble.  He had it all set up and ready to go on our patio when I got home.  The fan hooks up to a standard garden hose and of course plugs in.  Our patio has an outdoor plug making this easy.  The only complained is the cord is really short.  It would be nice if it was a little longer.  By adjusting the level of water coming out of the hose you can adjust how much mist you want to come out. You can also turn off the hose and just use it as a fan, but why not have a cool mist too.  We have such a dry heat that the feel of the cool wet air is so nice.


     The fan is really sturdy and seems to be well built.  It also looks really stylish.  It is a great size and will cover a 500 square feet area.  I really like that it adjusts easily up and down and can tilt.  So you can aim it the way you want.  With 3 different speeds we cam adjust it for any level of need.  The speed is controlled by easy to push buttons on the front.  Like with any fan the higher the speed the more noise it makes.  It really is not noisy at all on low, but as you turn it up the noise level does increase some.  The fan can sit still or oscillates to help spread around the cool breeze.  When using the oscillating feature if feels like it really covers more area and keeps everything cool.



     While playing in the backyard the boys can run and play while keeping cool.  If they start to get too hot they like to run over and stand in front of the fan for a moment.  They think the fan is great. I really like that my boys are not getting over exposed to the heat.  So far it has not been super hot this year, but I expect it will soon.  This will also be great for the boys birthdays.  They both have summer birthdays and it is usually too hot to be outside much.  But with the fan we can celebrate some of the party outside and not get too hot.
