#1 Amazon best seller , Honeywell HY-280 QuietSet
From the reviews this fan seems to be quietest humanly possible , Again no fan will be silent , unless you buy 400$ Dyson Air Multiplier AM07 Tower Fan. Only reason I would spend that kind of money is if I have severe medical condition .
Most 60$ fans will do job just fine .
Lasko #2554 42-Inch Wind Curve Fan with Remote , With more than 4500 reviews, this fan is what we call work horse of the fan industry , I personally own Lasko tower fan, Have been doing pretty well so far , no issues .

Ozeri Ultra 42 inch Wind Fan is quietest fan with its new noise reducing technology, Ozeri make 2 types of tower fan , Ozeri Ultra and Ozeri 3X, Both are priced at 95$ , From the reviewer who used this fan , Ozeri Ultra seems to be quieter and more desirable .
Lasko #2554 42-Inch Wind Curve Fan with Remote
Note : Wiki Ezvid gave Dyson Am07 fan as # 1 pick , I don’t personally think that its even fit fan category as its way out of reach for most of us .
We have a large house and few areas doesn’t seem to get cooler or my mom feels cold even at 76 degree farhenheit , plus the large electric bill , I thought I will buy few fans for my house that I will station permanently at particular places instead of buying small fans and carrying it around ,
I bought these 3 different tower fans from amazon instead of buying 3 same one , Just to see which ones really stand the test
—->Honeywell Digital HY08BP
I downloaded dbvolumemeter iphone app and measured the noise keeping everything else quiet , I measured it from 3 ft away directly opposite to the fan with still setting on fan ,
Here are the results
—->Lasko HVB ———– —— LOUDEST with 64 decibel
—->Honeywell Digital HY08BP —— Medium loud with 54 Decibel
—–>Lasko Windcurve ——–with only 49 decibel —-its the quietest <———WINNNNNER
—->Lasko HVB — High Velocity Blower does stand to its designation and blows some serious air , More air means more noise , its not very quiet as they claim , and more louder than Honeywell HY and Windcurve but if your priority is serious air , this is my pick , For me I want most bang for my buck , I want air and that too a lot of it <———WINNNNNER
—->Honeywell Digital HY08BP and —>Lasko Windcurve
From airflow perspective , I felt they both were at same level , may be Lasko windcurve slightly faster and cooler than Honeywell, It might be because of the filter that Honeywell has put in ,
—> NOTE: If you have kids or have allergies —-Buy Honeywell HY08BP as it has filter just like AC
