Here is our comparison of the best models of summer 2022

Summer has arrived, high temperatures with it. And the summer of 2022 is especially marked by heat waves. Instead of giving the air conditioning, we selected and tested four fans (Rowenta, Dyson, Ohyama and Xiaomi) to direct you to your future best friend who is a fan.

In short

  • the Xiaomi Mi Smart Standing Fan 2, an affordable voice-controlled fan. 99 euros at Xiaomi (but usually out of stock), about 75 euros at Amazon.
  • the Dyson Purifier Cool Formaldehyde, an ultra high-end fan-air purifier, with a futuristic design. 699 euros at Dyson
  • the Rowenta Turbo Silence Extreme+, a very powerful propeller fan, with a silent mode perfect for sleeping in the middle of a heat wave. 159 euros at Rowenta, 99 euros at Amazon.
  • the Ohyama’s woozoo, a small fan with an all-circular design, sold for about 70 euros on Amazon. The surprise that no one expected.

Is the summer of 2022 about to break new heat records? Due to the extremely high temperatures in June and the heat waves in July, everything suggests that new heat waves will continue to hit France in the coming weeks. Who said that the high heat usually says lack of stock for fans or other air conditioners, and therefore complicated nights. In this article, we suggest that you wait to buy your fan before prices rise and stocks are at their lowest.

It should also be remembered that heat has many effects on the body, and good practices should be adopted to avoid “heat stroke”: stay hydrated, eat light and avoid going out after hours the warmest is the particular sanitary actions that are always reminded, especially for the most vulnerable people.

It is possible to invest in an auxiliary air conditioner to lower the temperature, but the fan is a more practical, less expensive and more ecological solution. We have selected and tested three of them to help you choose from hundreds of more or less good references on the market.

Xiaomi: connected fans at low prices

Known for its smartphones, computers, scooters, headphones, televisions and light bulbs (almost everything actually), the Xiaomi brand also makes fans. One of their main strengths is their white, extremely minimalist design, which is light years away from the dreary look of other competitors. Who says Xiaomi also says connected, the entire range of Mi Smart Standing Fan can be connected to Wi-Fi to be controlled via the Xiaomi Home app or Google Assistant. “OK Google turn on the fan” a Xiaomi reality, although many options are offered in the Xiaomi Home app.

Xiaomi’s reference is the Mi Smart Standing Fan 2, which is offered for 99 euros in the Mi Store (but usually out of stock) and at 75 euros on Amazon. Since we couldn’t find one, we tried the more compact version, the Mi Smart Standing Fan 2 Lite (about 70 euros on Amazon). The quality of the design is there (despite the small feet, it should be placed on a chair) and the ventilation is very nice, while it is quiet. Xiaomi has once again proved that it knows how to do it in terms of value for money. The app Xiaomi Home works very well and allows you to control your fan from your smartphone.

In short

  • Beautiful all white design
  • Application to control it remotely
  • closed up

Quiet and powerful: the Rowenta Turbo Silence Extreme +

So yes, on paper, the Rowenta fan is not the sexiest. Its design is lambda fan. It is piloted with an “old” wheel and, in terms of connectivity, there is nothing. There is no Wi-Fi module or Bluetooth module in this model, it is a fan that could not be more classic.

However, the Rowenta Turbo Silence Extreme + is the best that does its job. Its breath is so strong that you don’t want to cough, its foot can be easily changed to make it higher and, icing on the cake, its night mode is amazing. It’s almost noiseless, it’s amazing. Its propellers turn gently, giving a gentle sense of freshness without being overwhelming. This is our fan favorite, especially because its price of 159 euros is rarely available in reality. This can be seen in 99 euros on Amazon, which makes it an excellent value for money fan. Especially his performance.

In short

  • The most powerful of our three fans
  • Real Quiet Quiet Mode
  • An adjustable foot
  • (But not connected and not very cool design)

The extra high-end: Dyson Purifier Cool Formaldehyde

Need we introduce Dyson? You probably know the brand for the design of its products. Purifier Cool Formaldehyde is no exception to the rule. Forget the propellers, you can run your hand over this fan while it’s running, without risk. It is undeniably a beautiful product that you want to put in your living room or in your bedroom, which is not the same as other fans.

The Dyson Purifier Cool Formaldehyde is not sold as a fan, but as an air purifier. It filters out a lot of things, making this product in a different category than the previous two references in this article. Everything can be consulted from a more complete application, which provides accurate information on the air outside and in your room.

However, at 699 euros, it is a design product. Its ventilation is not exceptional, you have to put it on high to really feel the fresh air and, above all, the modes that really cool the room make a lot of noise.

In short

  • An ultra-futuristic design
  • Purifies the air
  • A complete app
  • (low ventilation)

The lovely little known surprise: Woozoo by Ohyama

From a little-known brand, the Woozoo fan has proven to be incredibly efficient in use, competing with well-known brands and models. First, because its ventilation is strong: the air that is moved is good, the range is far (you can feel it at the other end of the room), and you can orient it in many possible configurations, at 180 degrees vertically and horizontally, thanks to its circular shape that works like a telescope.

Another advantage: the “natural air” mode. This function reduces the power, but automatically changes the power of the fan – the result is a nice strong cold air. This mode offers competitive silence, which makes the ventilation more careful and easy to fall asleep.

The fan can be fully controlled remotely, without getting up from your sofa once, thanks to a small remote control with buttons to turn on/off; for each power mode; to activate the air; to manage rotations; and even activate a timer (three timer modes: 1 hour, 2 hours or 4 hours, useful for saving energy).

Small (21 x 29 cm), and quite cute, it can easily be in the living room, on the table, in the bedroom, with taste. In short, it is a very nice surprise for a cheap price from 68 to 80 euros depending on the color or the seller.

In short

  • A beautiful design
  • A complete remote control
  • A pleasant and very quiet “natural” air mode
  • 4 highly efficient speed modes
  • A timer
  • Combinable vertical and horizontal rotation
  • Low price for quality that challenges or surpasses more expensive fans
