Fans come in many sizes and shapes. With proper
application, even a paper plate can be used as a
fan. There are even battery powered fans that have great
value during an emergency.
A fan that moves air has some meaningful uses as shown
- A fan can be a great sleep aide by being a companion as it
drowns out undesired noises.
When air is moved, it can have a cooling effect on
people. The cooling effect can be enhanced if the air is blown
through a wet cloth such as a towel.
Control - Many flying insects will not bother
you if a fan is blowing air on you.
- A fan can be used to "fan the flames" of a campfire or to
help start charcoal briquettes. For example, if you are using
charcoal lighter to start some charcoal, try using less of it
and then let a battery operated fan help light the coals.
- A fan can be used in a kitchen or bathroom to
remove undesirable humidity and odors from the room.
Warming - A
fan can be blown across something warm to produce warm air.
