With temperatures hitting 40 degrees for the first time ever this week in the UK, it’s really important that we take effective measures towards staying cool at home. Obviously, now is a good time to invest in a decent fan but unfortunately they do tend to sell out quickly during heatwaves.

Thankfully, we’ve spotted one of the GHI’s top-performers, the Igenix DF0038 WiFi/Alexa Tower Fan, is currently still in stock on Amazon – and it’s reduced by 20% at the moment, too.

Scoring 78/100 in the GHI’s tests, this clever smart fan is now £79.99 down from £99.99. It has built-in WiFi and voice control via Alexa, so you can change the air flow remotely. Our testers found the app straightforward to use, with intuitive options for setting timers and switching between its eight speeds. You can also change the settings manually and via the included remote.

As a bonus, this fan was named the best energy efficient model of those tested. It uses an average of just 0.044 kilowatts of electricity per hour, making it the cheapest fan to run from our list. Its slimline design also won points, with testers agreeing it distributed a precise air flow around the room.

There weren’t many complaints, but our team did note that its highest setting was the loudest on test (although the lower ones were barely audible). Saying that, there is a quieter night mode to help prevent disturbance to light sleepers. It also doesn't rotate as far as other fans on the GHI’s list, turning only 53 degrees, compared to the winning SmartAir fan’s 130 degree range.

If there was ever a time to invest in a fan, it’s now – and the discount just makes it more of a no-brainer. You can pick one up from Amazon here.
