Fans are the perfect partner for long summer days. They help to cool you down while you’re doing chores, working in the office or getting your 40 winks at night. There are a few styles of fans out there, ranging from large, freestanding models to smaller ones for your desk. Read our handy guide to find the perfect one for you, and see how you can stop melting away in the summer heat.

Freestanding fans

Perfect for when you need to cool down in the living room, freestanding fans sit on the floor and blast out a refreshing, even temperature. These models are usually bigger and more powerful than other fans, so they can cool a larger area and can help maintain a consistent temperature throughout the room. If you want to be smart with your cash, look for a model with a heat setting. This means you’ll be able to relax in total comfort all year long.

Table fans

These offer great cooling coverage and can be set higher off the ground – perfect if you have little ones running around and you don’t want them knocking over a freestanding model. Their small size also means they’re great to put in bedrooms at night time, to cool you down on a warm evening.
