ENERGY STAR Qualified Ceiling Fans


Rising utility costs and an ever increasing challenge to eliminate environmental waste means we have to get technologically creative. Investing in a ceiling fan with an ENERGY STAR label is a practical option that allows you to minimize waste while maximizing a financial benefit.

But just because a unit says it’s green doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the best option out there. In other words, how do you know if your unit is really saving as much money and energy as it says it does?

Look for the "ENERGY STAR Qualified" Label


The EPA came up with this label for two reasons: (1) to recognize units that have passed a rigorous testing process to prove they’re highly efficient, and (2) to make it easier for consumers to identify and purchase energy efficient, bill-saving products that won’t sacrifice performance or comfort.

Plus, ENERGY STAR ceiling fan models must come with a minimum 30-year motor warranty, a one-year component(s) warranty and a 2-year lighting kit warranty.

At Lumens, you will want to look for the ENERGY STAR label on the product page to determine if it is energy star qualified. For example, take a look at the Aviation Ceiling Fan by Minka Aire where the ENERGY STAR label is just above the product description.

Want to save even more? Consider purchasing an ENERGY STAR ceiling fan with an energy efficient lighting kit. They’re proven to be 50% more efficient than conventional fan/light units, saving you more than $170 in energy costs over the fan’s lifetime. The lighting is efficient and long lasting, so you won't have to make bulb changes as frequently.
