When its summer and you are working at your desk, the last thing you want to worry about is sweat dripping from your forehead. There are also those times when you just want to relax in your favorite room and enjoy a cool, silent, and refreshing breeze. Often, turning on something like a desk fan makes a lot more sense than cranking up the air conditioning and of course can save you a lot of cents as well. From ease of cleaning to the most recent technological innovations, I have found the best desk fans to keep you cool this summer.
Dyson Air Multiplier AM06 Table Fan
If you want the absolute best desk fan, then you must have the Dyson Air Multiplier. Not only does it have a sleek modern design, there are a whopping 10 different settings for air flow, ensuring this fan will keep you cool no matter what preferences you might have. The Dyson Air Multiplier is also quiet and cleaning will be minimal since there are no fan blades.
Rowenta VU 2660 Turbo Silence Electric Desk Fan
If a soothing quiet breeze is essential for your cooling needs, then the Rowenta VU2660 Turbo Silence Electric Table Fan is the best desk fan for you. It comes with 5 whisper quiet settings including the Silent Night mode which is utterly perfect for sleeping (and of course those relaxing mid-day cool naps).
Vornado VFAN Vintage
This thing is so cool! Vornado reached back into its vault to bring the world this vintage 1950s fan which became an instant best-seller. It comes in a variety of different colors from popular chrome to the Havana banana leaf green.
Vornado 630 Midsize Fan
If you are looking for a fan small enough to fit on your desk but powerful enough to move air throughout the room, the best choice is the popular Vornado 630. Backed by a 5 year warranty, you are sure to have many reliable cool summers if you pick this up.
PureFlow QT7 Bladeless Oscialltion Fan
Much like the Dyson, PureFlow’s QT7 bladeless fan is worry free: you don’t have to worry about constantly cleaning the dust from the fan blades (because it doesn’t have any!), and you don’t have to worry about your pet getting hurt when it gets too close to the fan. Use the remote control to effortlessly adjust the fan settings so you don’t have to constantly get up or stop what you are doing in order to change the fan speed. With 12 different air speeds you can select a gentle breeze to a full on blast of ice cold wind. All of this has helped it become one of the most popular and best-selling table fans available today.

Honeywell is a big name in air conditioning and cooling and make a great fan for just about every purpose you could imagine. This compact desk fan is nice and simple: 3 different settings keep you cool and the fan itself is quiet and perfectly functional; use the adjustable tilt head to blow air any way you want throughout the room.
