How To Position Your Vornado For Optimum Performance
The following article details recommendations for placement and positioning of your Vornado Whole Room Circulator in order to achieve optimum circulation.

Also, be sure that the rear of the Vornado is free from obstructions (curtains, furniture) that may block the air as it is pulled into the circulator. The signature Vortex Action airflow will travel across the room, and flow along the walls and ceilings – ensuring that the entire room is circulated. Because hot air rises, the coolest air is typically near the floor – so placing your Vornado on or near the floor is recommended to quickly establish a balanced room temperature.
Your Number One Fan:
In rooms where a ceiling fan is present, you may consider using only your Vornado, as the strong downdraft of the ceiling fan may create enough of a disturbance in the room as to minimize or negate the unique Vortex Action airflow of the Vornado Air Circulator. Vornado owners frequently report that the smooth, gentle airflow of a Vornado is more comfortable and effective that of a ceiling fan. Vornado recommends experimenting to determine your ideal preferences.
When Summer Heat Arrives
It has been shown that circulating air raises your threshold of discomfort. That means if you’re comfortable at a 72-degree thermostat setting with NO air moving, you can enjoy the same level of comfort at a higher thermostat setting, say 77-degrees. That 5-degree increase of the thermostat can translate into as much as a 10% savings on your electric bill. (Energy savings vary by part of the country. Savings estimates are provided by the Department of Energy.) Even when it’s time to turn on the Air Conditioner, your Vornado will be an important part of your climate control solution – and will help you save energy and money all summer long.
