The 8 cheapest fans for the heatwave from handheld to towers – and prices start from just £10 | The Sun

BRITS are bracing for a heatwave this week, with temperatures set to hit 34 degrees – if you don't have one yet, a fan is a must-have to stay cool.

Depending on your budget and how much space you have, there are plenty of fans available from UK stores – but you might have to be quick while they're still in stock.

If you're working from home or trying to keep cool at night, a fan is one of the most effective devices to have on hand.

With energy bills soaring, you might be worried about usage – and we've looked how much it costs to run a fan overnight.

But the gadgets themselves don't have to cost a fortune.

We’ve rounded up a range of options to suit every budget.

Home Bargains

Home Bargains has a desk top fan, and a larger option if you're after something bigger.

The Nestech 16" Stand Fan costs £16.99, while the smaller Nestech 12" Desk Fan is priced at £12.99.

The standing fan will be perfect for keeping your bedroom cool at night with three speed settings and an oscillating and tilt function.

It also has three speed settings meaning you can have more control over how cool the room is.

Elsewhere, we've looked at the four items you should always buy at Home Bargains.

Temptation Gifts

This gadget is a must buy – transforming your phone into your very own portable fan.

All you have to do is plug the device into your phone's charging port and relax as cool air is blown onto you – check your phone is compatible before you buy though.

The best part is, it doesn't require batteries – instead it runs off your phone's battery, so make sure you're fully charged.

Temptation Gifts has currently got a 20% discount on the device, bringing it down to £3.19 – a saving of 80p.


If you don't fancy a cool phone fan, then how about a new fashion accessory?

Poundshop sells this Chillmax Wearable Neck Fan – although it's slightly pricier than other items in the store at £15.

Still, it has the advantage of keeping your hands free as well as rotating 360 degrees so you can have the perfect angle, aiming the breeze exactly where you want it.

There are three speeds and LED lights – perfect for a disco or dance party in the summer weather!


Amazon is selling a 16” stand fan priced at £19.99.

It’s £3 more expensive than the similar product by Home Bargains but you can bulk order these at £30.99 for two and £56.99 for three.

This fan is lightweight and will be perfect for cooling your living room and bedroom during the hot summer days. You can purchase it here.

Amazon are also selling a Mini Handheld Fan.

Costing £12.99, this is a battery powered fan that you can carry in your handbag during the day. It has three adjustable speeds and a rechargeable battery. It’s charged through a USB charger.

It can be purchased here.


Argos is selling a Russell Hobbs Scandi 4” USB Desk Fan with a retro vibe that will keep you stylish as well as cool.

It’s compact, lightweight and comes with a 1m USB cord. It’s also quiet so it won’t distract you when you’re working. To turn it on simply plug it in and press the on button.

However, it only has one speed setting and costs £20 – so if price is your priority, this may not be the one for you.


Sainsbury’s is selling this Chrome Tilt Fan, measuring in at 28x11x29cm.

At £27 it's not the cheapest of the bunch, but it's got three settings to keep you cool and looks great.

With an adjustable tilt, it's suitable for free standing.
