The 10 Best electric fans
Keep cool in style
Tuesday 31 July 2012
1. Smart tower fan
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
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
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
With two fans in one, this benefits from 20 per cent more air flow.
5. Dimplex Mont Blanc
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
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
While most handheld fans have two blades, this has a third, which makes a surprising difference to the task in hand.
8. Dimplex GloFan
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
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
It may not be the classiest fan but this 16in pedestal will turn your room into a cool haven.
