Not All Pedestal Fans Are Created Equal
Fans are an ideal way to increase thermal comfort. They create a breeze which cools occupants through the wind chill effect. Paired with air conditioning, fans allow you to increase the set point on hot days. Or switch the aircon off altogether in mild weather.
While pedestal fans are generally quite useful, most are poorly made. They use inexpensive, noisy, and inefficient AC motors. It's not hard to see why broken fans often pile up at curbside hard rubbish collections.
We sell the Vornado 683DC (pictured on the left), not to be confused with the sometimes cheaper but poorer performing Vornado 683 (pictured on the right).
Vornado 683DC Pedestal Fan
Vornado Energy Smart Series fans use efficient DC motors. They are well designed and carry a 5 year warranty. Their variable speed control dial smoothly adjusts from:
- lowest speed drawing 2 watts at 400 revolutions per minute, to
- highest speed using 40 watts at 1,800 revolutions per minute.
Unlike regular pedestal fans, Vornado fans are designed to provide whole room circulation. They call the resulting tornado like airflow "Vortex Action."
“An inlet guide cone directs air to the most efficient portion of the blades. In turn, the wide, heavily contoured blades churn the air into motion. The air then travels through a duct which sculpts the air into a column shape. As the air exits the Air Circulator, Vornado’s AirTensity™ Grill straightens the airflow to ensure the air travels long distances. The airflow column will spin and twirl to the opposite corner hitting the wall where it will split off and recirculate to the centre of the room.” - Vornado Air
Quiet Operation - the DC Pedestal Fan Advantage
Many people find fans can help them sleep. This includes both hot sleepers and those who enjoy some level of white noise. With the Vornado’s precise speed adjustability, just the right level of airflow or white noise can be set.
For overnight use, the energy savings really add up. The Vornado 683DC provides useful airflow with as little as 5 watts of power. Contrast that with the 40 watts (or more) used by most pedestal fans, even on their lowest setting.
The Vornado 683DC is quieter, more effective, and looks better than other pedestal fans.

Pedestal Fan Frequently Asked Questions
What about other Vornado fans?
Vornado has a wide range of fans but only a few models use efficient DC motors - called the Energy Smart Series. If you're looking for a compact fan, see the Vornado 533 DC or Vornado 633 DC - perfect for bedrooms, home offices, or similar.
How easy are they to clean?
Vornado fans have a detachable grill making it easy to clean the blades.
Do they oscillate?
The fan angle and height are both adjustable, but they do not oscillate. Instead, they're designed to circulate air throughout the room from a fixed position.
Does it come in black?
No - this energy-saving pedestal fan is only available in white. We do sell some ceiling fans in black if you're interested.
The fan arrived promptly and is sturdy, powerful and quiet. Having adjustable speed is great (rather than 3 fixed speeds). I love knowing it is energy efficient and I look forward to it lasting well into the future. Thank you.
Brilliant, efficient, powerful.
Love it. Does what it says it does.
Good pricing, fantastic customer service.
Absolutely love these fans (I have 3 ) as i have low ceilings cannot have ceiling fans. I don’t like fan noise these are very quiet & circulate the air beautifully i have refrigerated air conditioning & very comfortable at 25c highly recommended
Fantastic fan. Best one I have ever bought.
I live in a hot city with no air con in my flat. This little dude makes the heat bearable. No remote, no oscillation, and a DC motor so it has less parts that might fail. Hence it should last a while. Oscillation not needed because it moves the air like a boss!
