Looking for a quiet fan to keep cool this summer? With temperatures set to soar around the UK, now is the ideal time to snap up a low-noise cooling fan. Whether you're on the hunt for quiet fans for your bedroom or tower fans, Quiet Mark has uncovered the best ones that won't keep you up at night.
There's a lot to consider when choosing a fan, including size, style, speed, and noise levels. If you're planning on using your fan during the day, noise levels might not matter as much, however, if you sleep with your fan on then consider fans with silent settings.
Wondering why you should buy a quiet fan? 'During the day, the reduced noise level enables you to focus on many tasks, such as WFH Zoom calls, or playing with the children during the summer break,' say the team at Quiet Mark, the independent global certification programme launched by the UK Noise Abatement Society charitable foundation. 'At night, a quiet fan will not only make the room more comfortable for sleeping in, but also the motor sound won't keep you awake, desperately reaching for the pillow to place over your head!'
On that note, take a look at these Quiet Mark-approved fans to add to your shopping list...
