As luck would have it our air conditioner froze up today and we're not happy about it. It's going to be quite the scorcher in Philadelphia this weekend and we're frantically considering purchasing as many fans as our bank account will allow. Even though we're not being picky about the fans we purchase (just as long as they blow hard) we are dreaming of well designed fans.We have several box fans from our local hardware store, and luckily our house has ceiling fans! This experience has really got us thinking about investing in a staple, modern fan. If we purchase one good quality and good looking fan — we won't have to run out to the hardware store the next time the A/C is on the fritz.
