Pedestal fans are a great way to keep yourself cool in the warm summer months. Choosing a pedestal fan with a remote control can make things even more convenient allowing you to choose the perfect setting without ever having to leave your seat!
We’ve researched and reviewed the top rated pedestal fans which include a remote and chosen three great models worth checking out. You can see a brief overview in the table below and find a more in-depth look at each fan further down the page.
Quick Look at Our Recommendations
Best Pedestal Fans with Remote
Below you can find a more in-depth look at our recommendations. We’ve chosen three different models, each with their own advantages. One thing to note is that the remotes on all of these fans have a fairly limited reach and only really work within around 5 feet. Unfortunately, this seems to be the case with most pedestal fan remotes as we haven’t come across any where this isn’t an issue.
However, if you only need the to control the fans from a fairly close distance (e.g. the fan is positioned next to your sofa or bed), then all three of these fans are great options to check out.
1. Lasko 1843 (18″)
The Lasko 1843 is a powerful but loud pedestal fan that you can pick up for a reasonably low price. Even on the lowest setting, it still creates quite a bit of noise so this is definitely one to consider if you like a lot of white noise, but you will want to skip this one if you prefer a quieter fan. One thing to note is that this is a fairly large fan (particularly the base at around 21″) so make sure to check the dimensions as a few users were surprised when it arrived at just how large it is.
In terms of features, the Lasko 1843 does have multiple speed settings, a timer, and of course a remote. However, the features are quite limited compared to the other pedestal fans on our list. It only has three speed settings, the timer can only be set up to 4 hours, and the remote cannot be used to control the oscillation. If you would prefer more settings and would like to control the oscillation with a remote, check out the next fans on our list. Another thing to note is the remote has to be quite close to the fan for it to work. Some people say around 5 feet. However, this is a problem we have found with all of the pedestal fans on our list and we haven’t found a pedestal fan with a remote where this isn’t an issue.
Most users found the Lasko 1843 to be super easy to assemble. It’s quite a large fan with 18″ blades and around a 21″ base, so it’s not the most elegant fan. It has an adjustable height (up to 54″) and a tilt back head.
2. Pelonis FS40-19PRD (16”)
Some people like a fan that makes a lot of white noise, but if you don’t, the Pelonis FS40-19PRD is a great pedestal fan with remote that doesn’t make too much noise. It isn’t quite as powerful as the Lasko 1843 but it does still put out a fair amount of air. It has lots of options too with 12 speed settings (most people find the fan starts to get a little bit loud beyond the 4th setting) and a 12 hour timer.
The Pelonis FS40-19PRD does include a remote of course, and it even has the option to control the oscillation from the remote.If you find there are a few different options to select from on the Amazon page, you need to make sure you select the Pelonis FS40-19PRD if you want to control oscillation from the remote. The other options may not included this feature as I found after looking through the reviews and finding some customers to be disappointed.
The Pelonis FS40-19PRD is a little bit smaller and more elegant than the Lasko 1843 (the blades are 16″ and the base is around 16″ in diameter). However, a few users found it a little bit tricky to assemble, but once it was assembled they didn’t seem to have any issues. Another thing to note is that this fan is quite a bit more expensive than the Lasko 1843 (at the time of writing).
3. Lasko 2535
If your short on space, a traditional pedestal fan might be too clunky and get in the way. If this is the case, the Lasko 2535 is a great option to check out as the narrow design means you can slot it right into the corner of a room keeping it out of the way. Although it isn’t quite as effective as the other fans on our list, it still puts out a decent amount of air considering its narrow nature and it’s reasonably quiet too.
It has 3 speed settings, a timer (between 0.5 – 7.5 ours in 1/2 hour increments), oscillation, and of course, a remote. The remote has quite a few options too with the ability to not only control the speed and timer settings, but also oscillation and sleep mode. The sleep mode turns the fan on for 6 hours on a low setting. A nice and convenient feature if you will use the fan for sleeping. Unfortunately, like with the remotes for the other fans on our list, you do have to be quite close to the fan for it to register.
When reading through the user reviews, I found a few issues with the fan starting to rattle or click a little bit after a few months of use so it seems there may be some quality control issues. The fan does include a one year warranty though, and it’s a fairly budget friendly option so you can’t expect the quality of a much more expensive product.
