Whether you’re replacing your existing fan or fancy buying an extra fan for your bedroom or living room, we’ve done all the research to find and bring you the top 5 best fans for Summer 2020. This line up suits all budgets and spaces so you can rest assured that it’ll be a good while before you find yourself on the market for a new one.

top tips when choosing a fan:
  • For large spaces like a living area opt for an oscillating tower fan or a powerful floor fan.
  • For your bedroom opt for a desk fan or tall tower fan.
  • Consider bladeless fans for households with children.
  • For bedroom fans consider the convenience features on a fan like a remote control, timer and oscillation so you don’t need to leave your bed at night to control the fan.
Meaco 1056 Fan

1. MeacoFan 1056 Personal Air Circulator

This multi award winning fan has been featured in pretty much every ‘top fan’ article out there and is backed with raving customer reviews. The most common reviews mention the extraordinary power that comes from a fan of this size as well as the fact that the MeacoFan is surprisingly quiet compared to other fans, making it the ideal fan for your bedroom too!

Granted, it may not be the best looking fan on the market, but with 12 speeds to choose from, a timer, remote control, vertical and horizontal oscillation, all whilst being extremely powerful yet incredibly quiet, the MeacoFan is easily a strong contender for the best fan around!

Dimplex Tower Fan

2. Dimplex Mont Blanc Tower Fan

This ultra chic and super stylish tower fan can be stored comfortably in any corner of a room but especially so in smaller spaces too with its slim, sleek design!

With 3 speed settings which can be controlled via the remote control provided, the Dimplex has an oscillating function and includes an 8 hour timer setting to keep you cool throughout those warm, muggy Summer nights.

We’re a big fan of this one!

Honeywell Turbo Fan - Best Fans

3. Honeywell Turbo Fan

If you’re on a budget but are of course still after a top notch fan, look no further than the Honeywell Turbo Fan.

This fan boasts power whilst remaining quiet and is therefore ideal for bedroom cooling without disrupting your sleep.

The fan is an ideal size for floor or desk positioning but can also be wall mounted to free up floor space.

The Honeywell Turbo Fan also comes with 3 speed settings and a tilt function (rather than oscillation) which can be pivoted up to 90 degrees to direct cooling to your preferred area.

4. Bionaire Oscillating Tower Fan

Another super popular tower fan and an Amazon best seller, which is quite a bit shorter than the Dimplex Mont Blanc Tower Fan (H: 74 cm vs Dimplex at 122 cm). It may therefore be better suited for use in a living room where it can be level with the sofa rather than bedroom where you may not benefit fully from the cooling if your bed is quite high.

Other than the size difference, the Bionaire Tower Fan is pretty much on par with the Dimplex Mont Blanc Tower Fan, with 3 speed settings, LED digital display, timer, remote control, wide oscillation, and even a natural cooling function with wind like breezes for overnight cooling.

It all comes down to personal preference but we had to include it as it is another highly regarded fan!
