Across the country, heat waves are leading many Canadians to find new ways to keep cool — especially if you don’t have access to air conditioning. An electric fan is a simple way that you can help beat the heat at home, and one affordable version has become a hit among Amazon shoppers.
As the second-best selling home item on the site right now, the Honeywell TurboForce 7" Power Air Circulator rings in at just $23 and is a top pick if you’re looking to stay cool this summer.
SHOP IT: Amazon, $23
With an adjustable head that can pivot up to 90 degrees, this fan can be used as a personal fan or for directional cooling. Its Aerodynamic Turbo Design offers maximum air movement that can even be felt from up to 27 feet away.
Though small, this electric fan offers three speeds to efficiently circulate air throughout your home. It’s also lightweight and easy to place in any space - even wall-mounted should you choose to.
Why shoppers love it
Backed by a 4.5-star rating from more than 7,000 customer reviews, the Honeywell TurboForce 7" Power Air Circulator comes highly recommended. Shoppers have been impressed by its durability and lightweight design, as well as its quiet performance.
One shopper noted that it “gives off a powerful amount of air” for such a small fan, while another added that it’s “very quiet for how powerful it is.”
Many shoppers have recommended using this compact fan at your desk for personalized cooling while you work, while others have raved about its cooling abilities overnight.
“This little fan has saved me during hot/humid nights,” reads one review, in which the reviewer also calls it a "pretty powerful little fan."
While this fan is quiet and effective, one of its drawbacks is that it only pivots manually, unlike other fans that oscillate back and forth. If that’s a feature that you’re looking for in a fan, there’s always the Honeywell Comfort Control Personal Table Fan, which does offer a greater range of coverage for a slightly higher price point.
Since hot summer days often call for extra cooling power, you may want to consider adding an electric fan to your arsenal. The Honeywell TurboForce 7" Power Air Circulator has received top marks for being an effective way to keep cool, and features a no-frills design and affordable price tag.
Just be sure that if you do opt for this budget-friendly fan, you don’t mind missing out on some of the added features of more expensive models.
