When the Aldi fans hit stores last year they were an instant sell-out, again arriving just in time for the heatwave.

It's become somewhat of a weekly mission for us here at Ideal Home HQ to track down the best home buys to hit Aldi! This week it has to be these fans, cool in every sense of the word...

The affordable Aldi fan is back...

The design features an adjustable tilt and three speed settings to provide optimum cooling depending on the temperature. Available in an on-trend copper and sleek chrome this fan is cool looking too.

Worth noting the desk lamps are cheaper than they were last year, only by £2 – but in Aldi that change can go a long way!

It features an adjustable tilt and three speed settings the same as the smaller version, with an added oscillating option. This free-standing fan provides the right amount of cool air exactly where you need it.

Be quick, you know the Specialbuys drill by now – once they're gone, they're gone. We wish this wasn't the case... we're working on using our powers of persuasion to make some lines permanent. Until then, speed is the key.

It's worth investing in a fan now, to beat the heat all summer.
