It is unlikely for anyone to turn down the gift of a modern tower fan with an air-circulating technology that brings cooling tower fans to the next level. The Vornado NGT425 air circulator tower fan does not only feature the V-Flow air-circulating technology but takes it a notch even better with its Versa-Flow adjustable airflow.
In this review, you will discover what does V-Flow adjustable airflow means and what advantage does this gives the Vornado NGT425 over other brands. Also, you will find the features and benefits this tall fan offers.

Overview of the Vornado NGT425
The Vornado NGT425 air circulator tower fan is an air circulator (and not just a fan – quite an important piece of information) that functions with versa-flow adjustable airflow technology. The technology is instrumental in creating different ranges of airflow, from a wide span to a direct line of airflow, which consequently leaves the tower fan with an unnecessary need for oscillation as this modern tower fan can continuously push a high volume of air throughout the room.
Furthermore, the NGT425 tower circulator features five-speed levels, touch-sensitive controls (which can also be remote-controlled), 1-8 hour auto-off timer (which is energy-saving), air inlet grill (that is easy to clean), and a 5-year guarantee (conditions apply).
Features of the Vornado NGT425
Now, let’s get detailed about the aforementioned features of this tower fan:
To enjoy the airflow from a typical tower fan, you have to be in its airflow path; otherwise, you’re not going to be as cool, implying that you have to adjust the direction the tower fan is facing each time you change position. However, Vornado solves that problem with its unique Versa-Flow adjustable airflow technology.
It propels air in a unique cone-shaped airflow pattern as far as 100 feet into the room, which constantly circulates air throughout the room space. So, irrespective of your position in the room, you will feel its effect as though you’re directly in front of the fan.
Typical tower fans use oscillation to manage the said challenge but it doesn’t particularly solve it because the whole room doesn’t get the airflow at a particular point in time. But Vornado impresses with its technology, giving air to the whole room at every point in time, thereby zeroing the need for oscillation.
You may be wondering at this juncture, what if I don’t want air in the whole room at a given point in time? With Vornado NGT425, you are in control; you can adjust the airflow direction (up to 45 degrees) by using the Versa-Flow adjustment dial situated on top of the unit. This setting will cause the air outlets to either narrow or widen to suit you.
For a tower circulator that confidently boasts as one of the most powerful tower fans on the market, it features a simple operation, which is a significant plus. I mean, who wants to endure the technical sophistication of using a fan! Vornado is a tower fan with remote control, which also features onboard touch-sensitive controls (situated on top of the unit) with which you can operate it.
Other features you can enjoy in its simple operation are the fan speed, onboard timer, and indicator lights. You can choose from any of the 5 speeds it offers to meet your need; you can time it to automatically turn off between 1 and 8 hours. The indicator lights are meant to display the current fan speed and timer status.
Tower fans are usually either powerful or quiet. What manufacturers often do is try to design a balance between the two features, and one might argue that Vornado did accomplish the right balance with NGT425. Its airflow rating is at 604 CFM and 300 CFM on the high and low respectively. So, power is not an issue; it’s probably the most powerful tower fan. Typically, in such powerful fans, the downside is the noise but Vornado managed to keep that under wrap in this particular design.
So, you have a quiet tower fan with a remote that can be easily opted for as the most appropriate choice for large areas, such as family rooms.
Benefits of using the Vornado NGT425
- Whole room airflow: at every given point in time, you can enjoy whole room airflow with the Versa-Flow technology of the Vornado NGT425
- Targeted airflow: With its Versa-Flow adjustment dial, you can direct air at an angle of choice (up to 45 degrees)
- Remote control: and including its onboard touch-sensitive feature, operating the tower fan is at the tips of your fingers
- Multiple fan speeds: you can choose a perfect speed level for you from its 5-speed levels
- Quiet: for such a powerful tower fan, it is quite quiet; a right balance between powerful and quiet.
Pros and Cons
- Power: 604 CFM high and 329 CFM low
- Noise: 55 dB high and 42 dB low
- Brushless motor: perhaps only power tool devotees will understand this concept, but it’s an efficient motor type
- V-Flow technology
- Versa-Flow adjustable airflow technology
- 5-year Warranty program
- Price: the product falls into a mid-range budget, not what you will particularly call “friendly”.
- Single color: lacking in variety and selection
What kind of maintenance does Vornado NGT425 require?
Maintaining the fan is easy. Clean it properly and periodically; that way, you keep its motor clean and never need oil. Besides, the motor is designed to be permanently lubricated; so, oiling it is unnecessary and may cause damage.
Is the Vornado NGT425 appropriate for outdoor use?
Not quite; it’s built for residential use. The design is not ideal for commercial applications.
What do you need? Fresh air in the spring and fall? Circulated warmth in the winter? Cooling comfort in the summer? Vornado NGT425 is the right choice with its unique Versa-Flow airflow pattern, an adjustability option that puts you in control of airflow direction, and easy operation.
