5 M&S Pod Fan, £6, marksandspencer

This hand-held fan, which is available  in various colours, is great for when you’re out and about.

6 Holmes Tower Fan with Remote control, £65, johnlewis

Tall and sleek, with a thin bottom, you can slip this almost anywhere in your home, no matter how short on space you are. You won’t even have to get up from your armchair to switch it on or off or alter one of the three speed settings, thanks to the remote control.

7 Dyson AM02 Mini Tower Fan, £290, johnlewis

This low-level fan was originally designed for the Japanese market, where sitting on tatami mats is common. But it’s proved a huge hit over here, too, not least because it is so incredibly stylish and it delivers a cool stream of air quietly and efficiently. As there are no blades, it’s a doddle to clean.

8 NSA’UK Desk Fan, £20, johnlewis

This four-bladed desk fan has  three speeds for flexible cooling  options and it works very efficiently.  But its biggest selling point is its  classy looks, meaning that you won’t mind putting it anywhere from a  desk in your study to the dressing  table in your bedroom.

9 Honeywell Black Tilt and Pivot Turbo, £26, amazon

If you want a good-value fan that you can easily transport, this is worth buying. It’s lightweight, compact and can easily be stored. And if you want a fan you can mount on the wall, this will still tick your boxes.

10 Dimplex Mont Blanc, £54, amazon

New to the market last year, this balances chic with practicality, boasting  a tall, slim body and a sleek black  finish, as well as plenty of nifty features including electronic  LED display, three speed settings,  eight-hour run-back timer and a  remote control.
