Be ready for a heat wave anywhere, anytime.

We don't need to tell you it's been hot. In the dog days of summer, when many of us see heat waves, it's pretty oppressive in nearly any location. Americans have seen record-breaking heatwaves this year, summer's still going, and things are not exactly trending in a less-scorching direction. In many places across the country, it remains toasty year round, making staying cool a priority beyond the season. For the rest of us, there's season creep—a reason you may be breaking a sweat more often.
But you don't need to drop a fortune on central air just to stay frosty. Something as simple as a personal fan or a change in bedding could make life a bit more comfortable. Choosing the right option depends on your specific needs, and we're here to break down some of our favorites.
