The temperature is set to rise again, so if you’re in the market for a fan, now's the time to go for it. The electriQ 29-inch TF29OSCT8RW tower fan is discounted to £47.98, down from £59.98. That’s a very solid 20% off.

The fan measures H75 x W28 x D27cm and comes in white. It has three fan speeds and an oscillation option. It also has a timer, so you can set it to run for up to 7.5 hours before it’ll automatically switch itself off. There’s a control panel on the fan itself, but you can also use the remote provided.

The fan weighs 2.7kg, so you can easily move it from room to room to keep you cool as needed.

You can get a Shark IC160UKS upright cordless vacuum cleaner for the bargain price of £179.99, down from an RRP of £449.99. It’s a refurbished appliance, hence the huge discount, but it’s been professionally checked, cleaned and restored and comes with a one-year guarantee for peace of mind.

It’s a cordless, upright cleaner with a lift-off section for handheld vacuuming. It's bagless, with a Hepa filter. It weighs 5.7kg but as it’s an upright, you won’t be carrying that weight, unlike with a cordless stick cleaner.

It claims to give 50 minutes of cleaning time from a single charge but don’t forget that this will be on the lowest setting. It also features Shark’s DuoClean floor head, which means you can go from vacuuming a carpet to a hard floor and back without changing any settings.

It also has a removable, rechargeable lithium-ion battery. This is a feature we really like because it means you can buy a second battery and keep both charged, and never run out of juice mid-clean. We wouldn’t recommend buying a cordless cleaner if you have a large home unless you can swap out the battery as you can in this one.

Finally, there’s 10% off the Bosch Serie 6 WAU28PH9GB 1400rpm washing machine. It usually retails for £699 (and you can currently see it on the John Lewis site and Marks Electrical at that price) but you can get it today for £629.10. It's a great machine at a very good price.

You’ll also get free delivery.

It’s a freestanding, A+++ energy rated model and its dimensions are H84.5 x W59.8 x D59cm. It has a 9kg capacity, which makes it a good choice for a large family.

It’s also an i-DOS machine, which is a Bosch system that uses intelligent dosing. All you need to do is keep the detergent and conditioner containers filled up and your washing machine will detect the load volume, fabric type, degree of dirt and water hardness and will choose the right volumes of each.

It’s also Home Connect-compatible, so you can control your washing machine via an app. This means you can tailor the programme to your wash and pause the cycle remotely.
