Ceiling Fans – 10 Reasons Why You Should Consider Installing in your Home

Ceiling fans have long been considered a standard installation to most modern homes.  There was a time, however, when they may have lost their place, with air conditioning becoming more of a staple than a luxury, home owners had to question their need.

Even with air conditioner use more prevalent in homes, there are plenty of reasons to consider installing ceiling fans in your home.  Check out our top 10!

Ceiling Fans for Comfort

Ceiling fans provide a constant breeze, which helps to keep us cool in summer.

Ceiling Fans for Distribution of air

Ceiling fans help to distribute the warm or cool air evenly.  Air conditioners do not always circulate air in the most optimal way.  Fans help distribute air more evenly, whether the air naturally occurring in your space, or that produced by your air conditioner.

Reverse function of Ceiling Fans

Ceiling fans, like air conditioners, can help to cool AND warm a room, and do it energy and cost efficiently.  Most include a reverse function, which allows you to reverse the direction of the blades and the flow of air depending on the season.

In summer, fans will force the room air down creating a wind chill effect for cooling.  In reverse mode for winter, they will gently draw the room air up and force the warm air down and out towards the wall so the room.

Reduce energy consumption with Ceiling Fans

The average ceiling fan will consume between 60w and 100w of energy, not much more than a 60w light bulb, and so are an extremely energy efficient form of cooling and heating.  Compare this to a 2.5Kw air conditioner, which uses around 2,500w per hour to run.

Save money on electricity costs with Ceiling Fans

Being energy efficient, and a more natural form of cooling and heating, fans are an affordable option to help regulate the temperature in your home, with the average fan costing between 0.13c and 1.29c per hour to run, compared to the average reverse cycle air conditioning system that costs between $0.33 and $0.40 per hour (

They also help to reduce the energy consumption of other forms of cooling and heating in your home, such as air conditioners.  Working in conjunction with your air conditioner, they allow you to reduce the speed and/or temperature setting on your air conditioner with the air being distributed more evenly and more effectively.
Ceiling fans can also be an effective form of cooling and heating on those days when it is not too hot or too cold, and a great alternative to running a more costly air conditioner unnecessarily.

Modern innovations to ceiling fans have long since surpassed the old days of rattling fans that sound like they may fall from the ceiling at any moment!  These days, they are a very quiet option, with innovations to DC motors, for instance, and when compared to air conditioners that need a motor to “push” air from a system.

Space saving

Ceiling fans do not take up valuable floor or desk space, compared to pedestal or desk fans.


So many models are now available with light included, saving you on additional lighting costs and installation.  There are also a wide range of LED options available for further energy savings.

Not what they used to be, manufacturers now aim for functionality and an aesthetically pleasing style when designing ceiling fans, meaning they can add to the décor and aesthetics of you space, and add a design element all on their own.
