Belt Driven Ceiling Fans

Sorted By: Overall Best Ceiling Fans - highest quality > coolest breeze > highest CFM > most efficient

What is a belt driven ceiling fan?

Belt driven ceiling fans were some of the very first ceiling fans ever created and have been around since the turn of the century. These unique ceiling fans operate from a single motor that has a pully which drives a belt that is stretched between each individual fan. The belt drive motor is attached to the wall or ceiling. Originally, the belt was driven by water wheels located outside the building with elaborate belt and pully systems. Nowadays, we use electricity. Some of the belt driven fans have a single fan while others can have multiple fans. The length between each fan can be up to 20 feet or so and there can be up to 5 fans driven by a single belt and motor. Belt driven ceiling fans are normally seen in commercial applications, although some people will install them in their home if the layout of the home lends itself to this application...and the budget is relatively unlimited. The majority of belt drive ceiling fans that you see in restaraunts and hotels and magazines are manufactured by Fanimation, the premier manufacturer of belt driven ceiling fans. Although belt driven fans move a slight amount of air, they are designed more for show than for function.

What to look for in a ceiling fan

About Our Exclusive Ceiling Fan Comparison Graphs

As of January 1, 2009, all ceiling fan manufacturers are required to test and publish data regarding the performance of their fans. Specifically, the CFMs (Cubic Feet per Minute of Airflow), the Watts (amount of electricity used per hour) and the Efficiency (EPA defines as CFM/Watts). Our exclusive "Comparison Graphs" use this data in a way that makes it easy to compare ceiling fans at a glance. The 3 examples below show how the graphs differ between the best, average and below average ceiling fans. Read more about how to interpret our exclusive Ceiling Fan Comparison Graphs Here!

Room Size and CFM Chart

Although the EPA now requires fan manufacturers to publish the CFM ratings of their fans, there is no standardized scientific method of determining what size and CFM fan is best for any given application. A few quick searches and you will find that each ceiling fan manufacturer interprets this differently. So we created our own size and CFM recommendation chart to give you an idea what we recommend for "typical" applications. We produced this chart based on over 20 years of experience dealing with ceiling fans and the people who we've sold them to. For the most part, this chart will suffice. If you have low ceilings, you can fudge a little on the CFM and use a fan in the lesser range of the room size. If you have high ceilings, you need more CFM and a fan closer to the larger size of the chart. In most cases, the more the CFM the better and the higher the quality score the better!
