There's arguably nothing more frustrating than trying to get some sleep during a humid and hot summer night. The agitating heat enclosing you and damp pillows from the sweat dripping from your forehead can be, well, a nightmare. The only relief is flipping the pillow over to the cool side, which only lasts for a few moments.
What everyone needs to invest in is a fan that can replicate a cool breeze, the kind you feel on a hot summer day that feels refreshing and gives you a sense of relief. The problem with many fans is that they're loud and can keep you awake or disrupt your day.
Fortunately, fans are now being engineered to reduce noise -- particularly for sleeping at night.
We've gathered the best fans, suitable for all budgets, that will provide you a refreshing breeze and allow you to get a comfortable night's sleep.
Dyson Purifier Cool purifying fan
Recognized as one of the most reliable and technologically advanced fans on the market, this two-in-one fan, and air purifier ensures your room is kept cool and you're breathing in clean air with no toxins. The HEPA filter captures 99.97% of particles 0.3 microns in size. Its recently improved technology means it's now 20% quieter than previous models. And better yet, you can control it with your voice, which saves you hopping out of bed to flip a switch. The Night Mode is most effective and is ideal for light sleepers, it monitors and purifies on the quietest of settings, and also keeps the display at a dimmed level.
Dyson Pure Cool™ TP01 purifying fan (Iron/Silver).
$299.99, was $399.99
The Pure Cool TOP01 is one of Dyson's more affordable models on the market and is perfect for those who are on a budget. Like the other models, it amplifies the surrounding air to give an uninterrupted stream of air that's been purified. Use the remote control from your bed to dictate the power and settings. Not only is it much safer to use than a standard fan because there is no need for blades, but it makes it quieter, too.

Alternatively, you can control it from the remote that's included, so you won't have to get out of bed to turn it up or down.
Honeywell QuietSet Slim Mini Tower Personal Table Fan, HTF210B, Black
This Slim Mini Tower Table Fan sits perfectly on a bedside table, or on a chair propped next to your bed. It has a 4-speed quiet-set control, and the motor alone saves up to 50% energy compared to an AC motor.
