Lasko is a company that still makes its fans in the USA. I like their all-metal fans because they are very durable, and the parts can be replaced by Lasko. They also come with a two-year warranty. The fan featured here is the Lasko 20″ High Velocity Floor Fan, and it will move a huge amount of air in a room. I tested the fan using my Kill-A-Watt electricity usage monitor. I found that on its low setting, the fan uses 122 Watts, but the real treat is the high setting, which will create tempestuous movements of air using only 133 Watts.
Note that the fan is somewhat noisy, but personally I find the sound soothing and much like over-sized hummingbird hovering in the room.
The Lasko 20″ High Velocity Floor Fan is available on Amazon for about $63.

I have the metal high velocity black fan and I know it’s 122 W one lower speed and 133 W one high speed what does it cost per hour to run the fan on low speed and what is the cost on high-speed Per hour Thank You
It depends how much you pay per kilowatt. On high the fan uses — 133 watts / hour and you can calculate the costs if know thr price per kilowatt you are paying.
Love the results and have never minded the noise. The wattage consumption you reference … 122 watts and 133 watts, is for how long a period? Per day?
I was referring to kilowatt hours.
I just bought the fan the article linked from Amazon. I didn’t notice at the time, but right in the Amazon listing it says, made in China. The box it came in, says made in China.
Lasko has been my favorite brand for fans for many years. I own 3 of them. They are the best bang for my buck as thy are indeed durable (I’ve owned them each for many years) and the metal blades seem to push more air. Your review is spot on in my book.
From what I read on the Net, the best “fan”, which the company actually calls an “air mover” is the Vornado. I would love to see a comparison of the two.
