I use an oscillating fan to stay cool at work because others like a warmer temperature than I do. I've noticed considerable buffeting when the fan is blowing directly on me. Our office is laid out in a grouping of cubicles.
I have tried locking it in place and pointing it directly at me (a lot of buffeting) and locking it in place and having it blow past me (not enough cooling). I have also tried getting a different fan and cleaning the blades to see if that would reduce buffeting.
What is the best way to use the fan to stay cool without it blowing directly on me?
