We have a tower one like THIS one.

We have had it for just over a year now and I'm happy with it. You can set a timer so it turns off automatically after however long or it can just turn when its above a certain temperature (and it turns off when it goes below that temperature).

We have a similar tower fan to the one linked above, but the brand is Heller.
We love it and the remote and timer function are really handy. Only downside is ours is quite noisy.

I have bought a few of the Abode brand ones from Big W. I have bought the floor model.  Price point is $40 - 50. We have had half a dozen here for over 2 years and during summer they are run all night in our bedrooms. And / or all day in the living areas. All still going strong. Plus they have a really great flow of air, not half hearted like some can be.
