DC Fans in a Range of Styles

If you are looking for an energy-efficient solution to cooling your space, a DC ceiling fan is perfect. We offer a wide range of ceiling fans with DC motors. Choose from a selection of styles and sizes with LED lights for both indoor and outdoor use.

Not only do DC fans work effectively to cool a room, but they also work wonders in winter. For homes with high ceilings, consider a DC fan which you can put on reverse. This can push the excess heat at the ceiling down, minimizing heat waste and providing more warmth to your space.

The Difference Between AC Fans and DC Fans

AC fans and DC fans are powered differently. DC fans are powered with a potential of fixed value such as the voltage of a battery whereas AC fans have a changing value. DC fans consume significantly less power than AC fans and are generally quieter. DC models can be more expensive but because of their energy-saving capabilities, they are worth the investment.
