Keep cool in style

1. Smart tower fan

£59.99, lakeland.co.uk

This space-saving fan is whisper-quiet, thanks to its high-performance air movement system. Comes with a smart sleep mode.

2. Black + Blum Propello fan

£88, heals.co.uk

Here's a very cool desktop fan. Boasting natural rubber blades, which allow a guard-free design, it also has a near-silent motor.

3. Dyson Air Multiplier

£199.99, dyson.co.uk

The daddy of fans. It is powered by an efficient brushless motor so that air speed can be precisely adjusted with a dimmer-switch.

4. Bionaire dual blade pedestal fan

£64.95, johnlewis.com

With two fans in one, this benefits from 20 per cent more air flow.

5. Dimplex Mont Blanc

£49.99, amazon.co.uk

With its tall, slim body and sleek black finish, the Mont Blanc is both elegant and practical. Features an LED display.

6. Nscessity mini tower fan

£34.99, lakeland.co.uk

This retro-styled fan is ideal for areas where space is at a premium. Features three speed settings and timer functions.

7. Marks & Spencer Pod fan

£4, marksandspencer.com

While most handheld fans have two blades, this has a third, which makes a surprising difference to the task in hand.

8. Dimplex GloFan

£54.99, robertdyas.co.uk

This doubles up as a heater in the winter. In heater mode, the LED illuminates red, while in fan mode it provides a blue display.

9. Stadler Form OTTO fan

£159.95, johnlewis.com

For a fan, this is remarkably chic, not to mention satisfyingly masculine. Made of formed, oiled wood, it also has height-adjustable feet.

10. Dunelm Mill standing floor fan

£14.99, dunelm-mill.com

It may not be the classiest fan but this 16in pedestal will turn your room into a cool haven.
