This fan is outstanding!! I took it for my dad who was in a local rehab nursing home. Yes, the facility has AC but due to the current heat wave, this fan performed an super outstanding job with its great oscillating feature! It was a life saver for my dad. Works so good that I purchased a second for myself to get me through these rough summer heats while I cook in my kitchen ...Would not be without it! It's a must have for my family!! Great purchase!!!
