Choosing the Best High Performance Indoor Ceiling Fan

When it's hot outside, there's no reason to feel it indoors as well. High performance ceiling fans offer a super charged way to keep cool in and around an interior. But with so many options now available, how do you choose the one that's best suited to your needs? Here are a few pointers to consider.

Cooling Power

The latest generation of high performance ceiling fans focus a concentrated supply of cooling power into an interior. The most powerfully charged fans will provide a high rate of airflow across the home, office, or commercial space. With models ranging from those featuring a high velocity airflow, right up to those with an industrial strength capability, the various types bring a next level of cooling indoors.

A Stylish Addition to the Interior

Fans haven't always been the most stylish of appliances. Thankfully things have dramatically improved, and today there are a full range of ceiling fans perfectly combining high performance functionality with a smart and well-designed appearance. The ability to select a fan that actually fits in with a room's overall decor and style is further proof of how far things have come.

What Colour Works Best?

High performance ceiling fans are today available in a range of colours, including chrome, brass, silver, and white. As with the style and the shape, the decision on which finish of a fan works best in a space will depend on the furniture, decorations, and ceiling colour that is currently in place.

With or without remote?

Many ceiling fans now arrive with a remote control. This helps with the overall ease of use, and ability to change settings and to turn the fan off and on. Wall switches are another option, but these will need to be installed by a professional.

Ceiling fan Energy Efficiency

Energy Efficiency

In most cases, a direct current (DC) ceiling fan will prove to be more energy efficient than a standard alternating current (AC) fan. The DC models tend to use up to 70% less energy than the AC types, and are also generally quieter and more powerful.

How many?

The question of how many fans you will need to get really depends on the size of the area you're looking to cool down. One hi-tech ceiling fan is certainly enough for a room, or hallway, while if the floor space of a building level is fairly large, it would be advisable to think about installing another one at the other end. Always direct the fans to where building occupants will be for longer periods of time, such as the bedroom, the living room couch, or a meeting room table.

A high performance ceiling fan is a great option for low energy cooling across an interior. It can help with an applied source of air circulation, at a low cost of energy consumption.
