6 Best Electric Fans You Should Buy

Whatever your requirements, we have searched the internet’s most-loved appliances to bring you a guide to the best electric fans you can buy now.

Struggling to keep cool in the heatwave? With summer temperatures rapidly rising across the UK, and possible hotter nights ahead, it might be time to invest in a fan.

Firstly, you’ll need to consider which fan fits your requirements. You might want a classic desk fan, a modern slimline fan, or a futuristic design. The size of your room will no doubt determine what you choose. For a small room, you don’t need much more than a desk or tower fan. For larger spaces, something more powerful – or even a portable air conditioner – might be your best bet.

Then you’ll have to think about nighttime. If you struggle to fall sleep on muggy evenings, you’ll want a quiet fan, or perhaps one with a remote control, so you can switch it off or change the temperature from the comfort of your bed.

6 Best Electric Fans

1. 630 Mid-Size Whole Room Air Circulator Fan – $64.99

630 Mid-Size Whole Room Air Circulator Fan

The Vornado 630 circulates the air through a mid-sized room, and has three speed settings to adjust the airflow for your comfort. The head pivots, so you can direct the air to where you need it most. Its squat design and sturdy base lets you set it up on the floor, or on your dresser to cool your bedroom while you sleep. During our tests, we were impressed by its range – the manufacturer claims the airflow has a 70 foot reach! We also loved how easy it was to remove the grill for cleaning. To cool a larger room, the Vornado 660 would be ideal. The five-year warranty, longer than standard, gives great peace of mind.

2. HT-900 TurboForce Air Circulator Fan – $15.99

HT 900 TurboForce Air Circulator Fan

This lightweight budget-friendly Honeywell HT-900 is (ahem) a fan favorite – over 10,000 Amazon reviewers gave it a five-star rating. Set it on a table, or on the floor, the head can pivot to angle the airflow wherever you want it – Honeywell says you can feel it 25 feet away! For optimum air circulation throughout a small- or medium-sized room, angle the head at 90 degrees. Three speed settings let you choose between gentle air circulation, or more powerful cooling. The grill is removable, making it easy to clean.

3. VU5670 Turbo Silence Oscillating Pedestal Fan – $139.99

This Rowenta has been designed to be powerful but still quiet. You can adjust the height of the pedestal stand from 42-54 inches, and the angle of the 16 inch diameter head is adjustable too, so you can direct the air flow to where you want it. Let it oscillate, or leave it stationary – that’s your choice. A handy remote control lets you stay seated while you switch between the five speed settings.

4. T42950 Portable Electric 42″ Oscillating Tower Fan  – $67.75

Vornado 660 Whole Room Air Circulator with Four Speeds

Increase circulation and stay comfortable with the power of the Vornado 660. This air circulator has four speed settings and a 90-degree tilt that allows the column of air to be projected horizontally or vertically. It’s designed to circulate the air in a room and, according to users, works best when pointed at a corner, wall, ceiling, or other surface that can bounce the air back and distribute it.

The Vornado 660 is quiet—even at higher speeds—so you can carry on conversation as it runs. It costs more than your typical table fan, but it’s a durable option that provides excellent circulation and ventilation.

Vornado VFAN Vintage Air Circulator Fan

If you’re a big fan of vintage-style appliances, look no further than the Vornado VFAN. This eye-catching air circulator features a durable metal exterior that’s styled after the brand’s first fan from 1945 and finished in one of three retro colors. Whether you go for green, chrome, or vintage white, it’s a stylish option that looks great on desks, bookshelves, and countertops.

The Vornado is more than just an accent piece, though—this small-but-mighty fan delivers impressive airflow. Three fan speeds allow you to adjust the circulation to meet your needs, and a pivoting head lets you direct the column of air where it’s needed most. To top it all off, Vornado offers a 5-year warranty.
