To be efficient, your workspace needs to be free of distractions. Especially environmental ones. If the air is warm and stagnant, it can make it hard to concentrate when you are at your desk for extended periods of time. A desk fan solves that problem. Finding the best one is a matter of determining which features you need the most. You'll want one that fits on your desk and has a number of speed options for comfort. A quiet fan won't add stress to your workspace. If it can be tilted and oscillates, you'll find the versatility gratifying. A grippy base will help keep your desk fan in place. And, depending on your preference, it can be powered by an outlet, batteries, or even your computer.
