Take this award-winning Meaco MeacoFan 1056 Air Circulator. Usually retailing for £109.99, it might seem expensive, but a product doesn't get this many consistent five-star reviews without being a seriously good piece of kit. One shopper even said they "actually prefer this fan than our air con".

The multi-award winning Meaco Fan is designed to provide you with quiet, cool air wherever you need it whether at home or in the office.

£94 at John Lewis

At John Lewis it has racked up a huge 790 five-star reviews, while at Argos a whopping 97% of shoppers would recommend the effective fan.

Plus, it currently has £16 off at John Lewis and Argos, taking the price down to £93.50, so now's a great time to add it to your basket.

Not only can this modern, stylish fan cool a whole room at its highest speed (there are a whopping 12 fan speeds) but its advanced DC motor delivers a stronger breeze than a standard fan that reaches over several metres.

At 3.2kgs it's also lightweight enough and portable enough to sit on a desk or a bedside table for individual cooling at a lower speed, and has a chic looking handle so you can move it around easily.

It's whisper quiet, too. The noise level starts from just 20dB (similar to a whisper) and has been recognised in numerous independent tests conducted by QuietMark and Which? for being a low noise product.

This futuristic fan has one of the most well-thought-out designs on the market. (Meaco)

It's also a lot more economical and energy-efficient than other cooling fans because it uses low power consumption from under 10 watts, which means lower running costs.

This clever gadget is also intuitive - it has a special ECO mode that automatically adjusts the fan speed up or down for you as the room temperature changes meaning you never get the chance to feel hot and uncomfortable. Genius.

As if that wasn't thoughtful enough, if you need a cooling breeze to help you nod off it has a special Sleep Mode that adjusts the cooling rate, so you don't wake up feeling chilly in the middle of the night. There's also an Off Timer so that it will automatically turn off at a certain time if you don't want it running throughout the night.

The fan can be controlled via the magnetic remote control that sits neatly in the centre of the fan allowing you to select from one of the twelve fan speeds. (Meaco)

You control it using a magnetic remote control that sits in the centre of the fan. And if you hate any lights glaring at you while you sleep, you have the choice to turn them off which is definitely a bonus.

The fan also comes in 100% recyclable packaging with a two or three year warranty depending where you purchase it from.

Shoppers have been blown away by the quietness and high-quality spec of this well-designed Meaco fan, finding it easy to use, portable, and really effective at cooling a room. Its clever Sleep Mode has also won a lot of admirers, too.

  • "Best fan we've ever purchased. Actually prefer this fan than our air con. Quiet and love the remote control."

  • "Have had a very much more expensive brand of air cooler but the Meaco by far out classes it at a fraction of the cost, can't recommend this highly enough, it cost 1p an hour to run, it's super quiet, it's very powerful & it looks aesthetically pleasing."

  • "This is definitely the quietest fan we have ever used. Lots of different settings would definitely recommend."

  • "This fan is brilliant you have so many different settings don't be fooled by its size it's amazing and easy to move from room to room I would highly recommend this fan."

  • "After researching lots of fans, we bought the 1056 Air Circulator White Fan. It is quite large but has many features, unlike most fans which just move the air around in one direction. With this one the air can be moved up and down or from side to side, and at varying speeds. We are very pleased we bought it."

  • "This Air Circulator is everything they say it is. The reduced price made it unmissable."

  • "I thought this was pricey but I was desperate, and the reviews on the website and from friends were positive. It was SO worth it, especially during our heatwaves this summer. The air "projects" well across the room, I love that it oscillates side to side, and up and down, and whilst the remote doesn't always work, it does save me from having to get up and down from my seat all the time - especially important during video calls with work."
