AC vs DC Ceiling Fans

Ceiling fans are a popular choice for Aussie households due to their versatility in circulating air throughout the home, cooling in summer, and even helping to heat the home in winter! One of our most frequently asked questions is whether to opt for an AC or DC motor!

Simply put, AC ceiling fans have been around for longer and have more control options, with remote or wall panel switch options available. However, they can be less energy-efficient, costing you more money, and produce more noise at low speeds due to their motor design.

On the other hand, DC ceiling fans are highly energy-efficient, using up to 70% less power than AC fans. They are also slimmer, quieter, and offer more control options with up to 6 speed settings available. 

Ultimately, the choice between an AC or DC ceiling fan will depend on your personal preferences, needs, and budget. If you are unsure, we recommend speaking to one of our friendly staff members at Ceiling Fans Direct to help you find the right ceiling fan for your space.
