Fans have been in hot demand this year and overheated Kiwis have been jumping on Trade Me to find a solution.

The number of fan sales were up 198% on last January and we’ve seen more than 100,000 searches for fans in the last 10 days.

Air conditioners and swimming pools have also been some of the most popular searched terms on-site in the last few weeks.

Stay cool New Zealand.
