Are you shopping for a direct current ceiling fan to help keep you cool and improve air circulation for your home or office? DC motor ceiling fans are an energy-efficient and lightweight solution for any home or business that can help save on cooling costs. The alternative fan technology is AC motor or alternating current ceiling fans, which are less energy efficient but tend to be less expensive. Efficient DC motor ceiling fans with wall controls, remote controls, or smart home controls functionality are available from all leading manufacturers.
Enjoy the superior, energy-saving and quiet performance of DC motor ceiling fans in your home, office or business. DC motor fans provide a high torque at a low speed, meaning greater airflow and less energy consumption - up to 70% less than conventional (AC) ceiling fan motors. Energy Star fans with DC motors are not only quick to start, they're also quick to stop and accelerate. Downrods of 3, 6, or 12 inches are often included so they can hang at the appropriate height from the ceiling; longer downrods are available from purchase.
