This Dyson Tower for just $180 will be your new No. 1 fan (Update: Sold out)

It's factory reconditioned, but less than half the price of a new model.

I'm cool and that's actually a fact. It isn't because I have an obscure John Coltrane record playing in the background, either: I have a bladeless Dyson Tower fan blowing on me as I write this and I've found it to be one of the easiest ways to keep cool during these balmy summer months. The Dyson is (by far) the most powerful and quietest fan I've ever owned, but all that slick research and development makes them anything but budget-friendly. The good news is you can snag a factory reconditioned Dyson Tower fan for a fraction of the sticker price right now -- down to $180 on Woot.com. To buy a brand-new Dyson, you're talking at least $450

There's always a risk in buying a renewed product but, if you think about it, fans generally take as gentle a beating as any home appliance. For one, they're mostly stationary. Plus, they don't get handled and touched regularly or for long periods of time -- just turned on and off. There's also a 180-day warranty for a little extra peace of mind. 

A disclaimer is provided by the brand that states: "All Dyson official refurbished machines have been thoroughly tested to meet like-new performance standards. Units may have some cosmetic blemishes that include scratches and/or other surface imperfections that do not affect functionality." 

The Dyson Tower arrive by early July with standard shipping costs. There's also a cap of three fans per customer, and because it's a reconditioned product, inventory is likely limited and it may sell out.
