About this deal

Fast Chill actively chills the air as it passes through a natural water curtain to keep you nice and cool. Air coolers are much cheaper to run* than portable air conditioners, averaging 2-4p compared to 20-40p per hour. All the fans on our list rotate to some extent, but the models with greater ranges of motion can help improve the comfort of several people at once.

Dual function auto-shut off and delay timer: Choose when you want Fast Chill to start or when you want it to end and in up to seven hours it’ll start up or shut off. It was a bit of a revelation, reducing the temperature in my bedroom from an entirely unreasonable 23 degrees (at midnight! It also used more electricity than most (2p when running for one hour on high), but this isn’t too surprising given its additional functionality. But it lasted all night and a few hours into the morning, which is all I needed before popping the ice packs back in the freezer ready to start again the following night. Oscillation Function: Convenient oscillating function means you can cool exactly the area that needs cooling.Includes Smart Chill Filter: Removes dust and airborne particles and expels fresh, cool and clean air. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Look for a minimum of three – any more and our tester found the differences between them negligible. For this test, I either tried the air coolers at home during a very hot spell, looking for a temperature reduction of at least two degrees, or consulted independent retailers with long experience in the market. Includes 2 BONUS ice packs, for an extra cool breeze: You'll always be cool, even in the height of summer.

Surprisingly, its lowest setting wasn’t that energy efficient, but its night mode will come in handy if you’re after versatility. Even the least energy-efficient – the Princess Smart Air Cooler – wasn't much more expensive, averaging about 2p an hour. An air conditioner will always outperform an air cooler when it comes to cooling ability,” Kandola says. Every model is then scored according to its performance, ease of use, design and product information.

They found it easy to use, and praised the versatile design that also acts as an air purifier and humidifier – an effective feature on test, which will come in handy if you find fans quite drying. The higher power does mean the Symphony costs more to run and it is noticeably noisier than other air coolers, especially at top speed. In terms of size, weight and cooling ability (they rate it at 12,000 BTU) electriQ’s 40-litre unit begins to approach portable air conditioners. Having tried other air coolers I now realise it’s a bit of an outlier, with a more efficient motor enabling a greater airflow.
