This weekend we have a heat wave with temperatures of up to 40 degrees. Buying a fan now makes sense, as pedestal fans ensure cooling in every room and were temporarily completely sold out last year. We give three current recommendations for every budget.
Buy fan: Amazon bestseller and test winner at Stiftung Warentest
If you don’t have one yet but need one, you should get one now Buy fan. At the weekend it gets really hot with temperatures of up to 40 degrees. Some don’t even want to leave the house. Fans ensure rapid cooling at home and good devices are currently available from just over 20 euros. However, once the first heat wave is over, prices could skyrocket. Last year many tried to get a fan in vain. With many spending the summer at home, demand could be even higher.
We looked at the test results from Stiftung Warentest and sifted through the current Amazon bestsellers and presented you with three standing fans with a diameter of 40 cm in the price range from 20 euros to 70 euros, which you can order immediately at a (still) cheap price.
