Ceiling fans can reduce your energy bills in summer by up to 40% when used in conjunction with an air conditioner. Direct current fans are a newer technology that uses considerably less power and are more energy efficient with a quieter operation and lower motor temperate while in use. The Hayman’s sleekly design blades boast mantra-ray curves to maximise air circulation.
The use of a ceiling fan can make a room feel up to 8⁰C cooler. The amount of air that is moved around a room is measured in cubic metres per minute (m3/ Min). The higher the air-flow rating, the cooler the fan will make you feel. Our fans range from 137–223m3/Min. The Suva fan with its contoured 163cm blades offers exceptional airflow.
Ceiling fans aren’t just for indoor spaces. More and more Aussies are creating a holiday-at-home vibe by upping the ante in their outdoor areas with beautiful outdoor dining sets and sofas to entertain guests. Installing an outdoor fan will not only help to keep things cool on hot summer afternoons, the gentle breeze can also keep the bugs at bay. The Noumea fan is reminiscent of a South Pacific frangipani flower.
Using ceiling fans in reverse during the winter months can make your house warmer and reduce heating costs by up to 15%. Nearly all of our fans have a winter mode / reversible mode switch. This reverses the blade direction to push warm air down from the ceiling, saving on heating costs. The Madeira fan includes a reversible mode switch, allowing it to be used to circulate warm air flow during winter.
If you want your fan to also be your main source of light, or you want to introduce more light into a room, look for one that includes an integrated light or light kit. The Esperance comes in black, white and timber and includes a remote control.
Unlike an air conditioner, ceiling fans do not dry out the skin, eyes and throat. If you like the thought of being able to control the light or fan speed from the dining table, ensure your selection includes a remote control, or you can purchase one separately. Most of our fans include remote controls and we also sell accessories separately.
Ceiling fans are a safer option than pedestrian fans, which may pose a risk to children and pets. For homes with higher ceilings (over 3m), we have an option of a 900mm drop rod, which can be altered to suit the space. Your ceiling fan should be installed at least 30cm from the ceiling, with the blades at least 2.1m from the floor. For a cost-effective option, the Apollo is a classic, entry-level ceiling fan with elegantly rounded blades.
