When the weather hits 30C in the UK, it becomes unbearably hot, especially for a nation who aren't all that prepared for the sun. Whether it's a hand-held fan for keeping cool on the go, or a tower fan that allows you an undisturbed night's sleep, you'll be glad to have your very own fan when the temperatures start to climb. Just imagine that cold breeze caressing your face during one of the hottest nights of the year... delightful.

Coming in at £350, Dyson's Cool Tower Fan is a serious investment. Quiet, cooling and pleasing to the eye, it's no secret that it's one of the best tower fans out there. But, saving yourself some money on a Dyson dupe and treating yourself to an ice cold breeze is something that we can definitely get behind. So, check out our favourite Dyson dupes below, perfect for keeping cool in a heatwave.

Best Dyson fan dupe overall

Price: £109.99 (was £119.99)

Replicating the minimal design of Dyson, the 5-star ProBreeze Tower Fan is the perfect addition to any modern home. Just like the Dyson original, the ProBreeze also acts as a purifier, removing impurities and pollutants from the air at the tap of a button. One reviewer even stated that they bought this instead of the Dyson, and it was the 'best decision they'd ever made'. Additionally, it features nine speed settings, four operating modes and oscillation so you can customise the experience to you.


  • £240 cheaper than the Dyson Cool Tower Fan

You'd be mistaken in thinking this was an original Dyson design. The Rechargeable Handheld Bladeless Fan from The Range comes in a fitting silver and pink finish, making it a sure dupe for Dyson in terms of its look - but what about its quality?

Perfect for popping in your handbag and taking with you to work, you'll be the envy of the whole office.

What is the best Dyson fan dupe?

Personally, given that I actually own the ProBreeze 40" Oscillating Tower Fan, £79.99 I can agree that ProBreeze have some incredible durable, efficient and low noise options out there. I still have my fan four years on, and its some of the best money I've spent in the long run. Therefore, when ProBreeze's 5-star 32" Tower Fan And Air Purifier, £109.99 made waves as a Dyson dupe, I couldn't agree more.

Why are Dyson so expensive?

Dyson's price points are mostly down to its patented technology, which are unlike any other used across different brands. The brand uses Dyson's Air Multiplier™ technology for quiet yet powerful airflow to keep your home cool. Therefore, it might be useful to look at Dyson dupes if the originals are a bit out of budget. After all, there's plenty that you can browse at much lower price points.

Where to shop Dyson deals?

It's not just Dyson Airwrap deals that have the internet obsessed. Dyson will sometimes run deals on its fans too. Keep your eyes peeled for the best Dyson deals across your usual retailers, Argos, Currys, John Lewis and the Dyson website itself, of course. Especially during sales events.

Another way to snap up a deal on Dyson? Check out Dyson's refurbished lines, including as well as on eBay for plenty of bargains on renewed Dyson fans.

How to clean a Dyson Cool Tower Fan filter?

For a simple clean, all you need to do is hoover the front grills of the fan with the brush attachment on your handheld vacuum. For the head, just wipe a microfibre cloth around the loop on the inside and out. And, for a deeper clean, we've found a step-by-step guide on cleaning your Dyson fan filter on YouTube that might just come in handy. Thankfully, bladeless fans are much less hassle to clean than your standard designs.
