In my old apartment I bought four (4) Honeywell small fans:

These fans have keyholes on the bottom of the base that allow wall mounting.

I mounted one fan in each corner of the room angled just a few degrees toward the center of the room. I set all the fans so that they created a circular air flow in the room. Having the four mounted high and aimed slightly to the center of the room and slightly down caused a turbine effect that was more comfortable than the large circulating fan I had previously. They also consumed no floor space.

I see that there are two models available. And one is much more expensive than the other. My main room was about 15’ x 25’ and the fans I bought from Sam’s Club came two per carton and cost about $30.00 for the pair. When I get home tonight I will see if there is a part number on them.

I also made an “air cleaner” by bungeeing onto a box fan one of those furnace filters. The filter gets dirty so I know it is working to some degree. About $30.00 total. I should build a box for this. If I do I will use a $3.00 fiberglass pre-filter over the more expensive 3M filters. I think it will allow the 3M filter to last longer. Very little flow is lost with the cheap fiberglass filters (but they only filter out big pieces of dust).
