fans in this heat

I don't think many people read deal requests (or maybe it is just my requests) so thought I thought I would post on my favourite board. Can anyone please suggest some good fans to get - either table top, floor or on a stand. The last lot we bought just weren't very good (I am not joking - they went round but didn't really circulate the air much)! They don't need to be very cheap they just need to work. We have homebase. B&Q, Argos, debenhams and electrical shops near so all suggestions welcome.Thanks

I have found that they don't really work that great. They, after a while, just blow around hot air. Go for an air cooling fan (the type you put iced water into).

I have replied to you in the Deal Request section :w00t:

However if I were you I would seriously consider a ceiling fan. They are very easy to install, and the air flow from them is amazing. They start from just £15 from B&Q. I have one in every bedroom and the kids especially have a good night sleep with them. They are also surprisingly quiet :-D

£35 from Costco, although they can be a little loud, but then you get a nice breeze

Thanks for the post. However I really really don't like them at all. Personally I think they look poor and you look at them all year for the 2 months you use them, but that is just my opinion.

Thanks will have a look at this - think parents may have something similar and they are EFFECTIVE!

I bought 2 fans for my kids rooms on saturday from Currys in Colchester. Brushed steel desk top style, very nice. They were 20.00 reduced to 4.99. Bargain! :)
