Cutting Edge Fan Design

Most ceiling fans will cool the occupants of a room, but not all ceiling fans are created equal. Some fans are at the cutting edge of ceiling fan design, while others, though functional, may be a bit old fashioned and stodgy. At Ceiling Fans Direct, we have hundreds of fans; some of our fans are extremely unique, while others are perfect for certain rooms. And, many of our highest quality fans are at the cutting edge of ceiling fan design.

Cheap Fans vs. Top Quality Fans

When you’re installing a new ceiling fan in your home or business, you’ll likely be tempted to buy the cheapest possible option – who doesn’t want to save money? If you do this, though, you may end up spending more money in the long run when you have to replace your cheap, low-quality fan. At Ceiling Fans Direct, we offer many affordable options, but we would never describe our fans as cheap. They are all sturdy, steady, quiet and reliable, which are all essential features in a ceiling fan.

Time To Switch Fan Direction?

Summer is a distant memory, and fall is almost over. However, just because winter is coming, it doesn’t mean it’s time to switch off your ceiling fan. In fact, your ceiling fan can stay on all year round and this time of year, it can be especially useful. You just need to change the direction in which the fan spins.

Some of Our Quietest Fans

When you’re deciding which new ceiling fan to purchase, you’re considering many different issues. How does the fan fit into your decorating scheme? Does the fan have a reliable motor? Is the fan covered by a warranty? These are all important questions to answer. Another element you should consider: how quiet is the fan?

Let’s Talk About High Efficiency Fan Motors

These days, everyone is thinking about sustainability and energy efficiency, and rightly so. With electricity costs skyrocketing, we want to make sure we do our part to save energy — and our hard-earned money. Buying a ceiling fan with a new, high efficiency motor is one surefire way to lower your electricity bills and do your part to help the environment, as well.

Ceiling Fans and Thermal Delight

During the hot summer, we sometimes spend the entire day in an air conditioned room. We go from our air conditioned home to an air conditioned car to an air conditioned office, and maybe even to an air conditioned restaurant or movie theatre after work.

Mission Style / Arts and Crafts Ceiling Fans

If you have a home that is built or is decorated in an Arts and Crafts or Mission style, then you might be looking for a ceiling fan that will fit into the theme. Characterised by simple, solid design and high quality materials, these late nineteenth and early twentieth century styles have a timeless appeal. Think dark wood, stained and leaded glass, wrought iron and weathered copper.

Installing a Ceiling Fan Lighting Kit

Do you have a ceiling fan that doesn’t include a light, but now realise that you wish you had one? Well, I’ve got some good news for you. In many cases, you don’t have to buy an entirely new ceiling fan. Many of our fans are designed to work with DIY lighting kits. If you have a lighting kit-ready fan, then you’re golden. Because these kits are easy to install, you can do it yourself in very little time. I’ve compiled a list showing you basically what you need to do to install a lighting kit into your existing ceiling fan.

Colourful Ceiling Fans

Most of our ceiling fans come in a few different colours or finishes, but these days, they’re usually wood, aluminium, white and black. All of those are great choices for the right kind of decor. White and black look good in a modern, minimalist environment. Wood adds a natural or old fashioned touch. Aluminium, either shiny or brushed, is sophisticated and a little industrial. However, sometimes, you’re looking for something with a little more punch.

Five of Our Best Ceiling Fan Warranties

When you purchase a new ceiling fan, you expect it to last. At Ceiling Fans Direct, we expect it to last, too. In the unlikely event that something isn’t perfect, I want to make sure you have the support you need to get your fan fixed, which is why I want to tell you about some of our best ceiling fan warranties. Whether you choose one of our modern designs or a more traditional fan, you can rest comfortably knowing that if something does break on your fan, you will be well taken care of. All of out fans have warranties, and here are a few of the ones that go above and beyond.
