DC Ceiling Fans
Why We Love DC Motor Ceiling Fans
What's not to love about ceiling fans with DC motors? For those interested in energy efficiency (and, frankly, who isn't these days?) this up-and-coming fan technology is truly something to be really excited about. DC fans consume up to 70% less energy and run almost silently.
Plus, DC motor ceiling fans are now available in a wide range of casual and modern fan styles from popular manufacturers like Minka Aire, Casablanca Fans and Kichler--and most are so efficient that they have earned a ENERGY STAR rating.
How Do DC Ceiling Fans Work?
In short...the DC motor starts up when a small electric current is passed through a magnetic field coil. The resulting magnetic force producing the torque that turns the motor repeatedly. This process requires less electrical energy, translating into a 70% or greater reduction in power consumption over standard AC motors. This energy efficient process keeps the motor cool, effectively improving the fan's life span. Noise is virtually eliminated. And the overall assembly is much more compact than standard, making for a smaller and lighter product.
