Home Life Stuff Dilemma: It’s Hot

Dilemma: It’s Hot

Published on May 13, 2013, by in Life Stuff, Our home.

Winter is officially over in Salt Lake City, so we’re full steam ahead towards summer.  Today, we had a little surprise:  it got up to 93!  It will cool back down for the rest of the week, but this heat spike definitely awakened us to the fact that we just don’t have enough fans!

My man-friend bottled some beer at a friend’s house, and I asked him to get a fan we noticed at Target last weekend on his way home.  Being the awesome guy he is, he brought it home for me.  I set it up, and disappointingly declared:  it’s still hot, this fan doesn’t blow.  Fans are nice that way:  you just know that they’re not going to work out as soon as they get going; no wait-and-see for a day or two; just instant knowledge.


It’s a Hunter from Target, and it cost about $25, which is fantastic for a not-ugly fan.  Sadly, it doesn’t move much air (regardless of where we place it), and it’s pretty loud and has some weird rattles.  What’s worse?  I found it online to link to it and discovered that it comes in amazing colors online.  Logically, I know that the color won’t make a difference in the fan’s performance, but the heart wants what the heart wants, and the heart wants color.

So now the dilemma (since I’m obviously going to return the rotten egg).

Do I get the fan I already own and love?  (It’s not pretty, but it’s pretty great, if you know what I mean.)  Or do I spring for something more stylish that I’ll love for keeping me cool and for keeping me cool?

    You can always spray paint the ugly fan – maybe that will keep you a little more cool.

      I like that idea, but I don’t think spray paint would adhere well to the chrome finish. On the bright side, I like chrome finish!

        You can always sand it (that would take FOREVER) or they have the spray paint base that you can pretty much use on anything (ready the bottle first though). Just a thought… one of many. lol :)
