For all-around style and all-season comfort, go for a ceiling fan.
Why We Love Ceiling Fans
Less expensive than running the air conditioning during the summer, ceiling fans cool the home in an economical and designer-friendly manner. Energy efficient ceiling fans, including DC ceiling fans and fans with integrated LED light kits, in particular offer even larger cuts in costs due to their eco-friendly design. And today's modern ceiling fans provide the perfect breeze in the summer and help circulate warmer air in the winter. Ceiling fan styles range from ultra-contemporary stainless steel designs to traditional builder fan options and work within a number of established themes. There's really no reason to not enjoy the benefits of these decorative ceiling fans.
Where Ceiling Fans Work Best
Honestly, because of all of the available styles of ceiling fans, there's really no room where a fan won't work. In large, open spaces like living rooms and great rooms, a ceiling fan with a blade span of 52" or more is your best bet. Large ceiling fans are capable of moving a significant amount of air, while operating with the same efficiency as any other sized fan. In the kitchen or in the breakfast nook, a ceiling fan with a smaller diameter is the ideal choice and in rooms with low hanging ceilings, including the laundry room and some bedrooms, you'll love the assortment of hugger ceiling fans. Damp and wet rated outdoor ceiling fans are great for front porches, patios, gazebos and pool areas. Finally, in commercial locations like restaurants, retail stores and warehouses, ceiling fans will gaurantee you are moving air in the space and staying comfortable. Whatever the application may be, you are bound to find cool ceiling fans perfect for your space here.
A Ceiling Fan for Every Style
Ceiling fans are offered in a wide range of styles to fit in with the aesthetic of your interior design. From traditional ceiling fans to modern styles, you'll find the ceiling fan you need here. Fit a rustic theme with any of the wood ceiling fans from Minka Aire, including the best-selling Artemis Fan or the Aviation Fan. And look to the the Modern Fan Company or Fanimation for a design that will give any room contemporary character. In transitional and traditionally styled spaces, you will like the casual functionality of a fan from Casablanca Fans and move twice the amount of air with a dual ceiling fan from Matthews Fan Company. Finally, if you love the benefits of energy efficiency in your home, check out the eco-friendly selection from Emerson Fans.
Choosing the Right Size Ceiling Fan
Choosing the right ceiling fan size is critical to the overall landscape of your space and to avoiding complications while installing a fan. When choosing a new ceiling fan, be sure to pay close attention to the number of blades it has, its blade span (diameter), mounting options (flush mounted ceiling fans versus fans with downrods), blade pitch and its airflow efficiency. If you have any questions about the ceiling fan sizes featured here, please call our ceiling fan experts at 877.445.4486 or refer to our ceiling fan size guide.
Other Great Options
Make your life easy with a ceiling fan remote. Most remotes for ceiling fans install in the canopy of the fan and work instantly (make sure the remote is compatible with your fan first). And in spaces where a fan and multiple ceiling lights are not an option, you may enjoy the all-in-one features of a ceiling fan with light. Ceiling fans with lights are offered in a number of styles with light kits using halogen, incandescent, fluorescent or energy efficient LED bulbs.
