NOTE: The Super Efficient DC Motor Uses About 60% LESS Energy than the Basic AC Motor!
Details and Specifications:
What's the difference between the AC motors (A1 & C1) and the DC motor (D1)?
The DC motors used in the myFanimation Distinction Series D1 model fans have permanent magnets that use almost no electricity.
They incorporate the latest most advanced motor technology using electronics to convert your normal household AC current to more efficient DC current to regulate the motor functions.
These DC motors are just $50 more than the AC option, yet they are about 75% more efficient. DC motors will automatically compensate for various blade sizes
without overheating, which is why only one motor option is necessary regardless of the blade size you choose. Even more, the onboard electronics allow for a whopping 31 speeds in both directions controlled directly from the included
remote transmitter or downloaded fanSync APP. If you want the latest greatest ceiling fan that conserves energy, the DC motor is well worth the extra $50
If saving an extra $50 is important to you, then you may want to consider the AC motor option for your Fanimation Distinction Series fan.
AC motors require electricity to power their magnets, which is the old inefficient technology still used in most ceiling fans for the last century. Different size blades require different size motors in order to
provide reasonable performance and to prevent the motor from overheating or burning out. In the case of the myFanimation fans, the A1 model has a 188mmx20mm motor for 54" blades and the C2 model has a 212mmx20mm motor for the 60" and 72" blades.
The AC fans have just 3 speeds and the reverse function is controlled manually by a toggle switch located on the motor housing rather than by the remote control or fanSync.
The AC motors are $50 less than the newer DC option, but they use a lot more electricity and provide less functionality.

myFanimation Light Fixtures & Glass
When you select a light kit using our configurator, we automatically match up the correc fitter and glass combination to match your fan.
myFanimation Wall Controls
Because both fans include a hand held remote control that can also be mounted to the wall anywhere you want (without wires), and each fan comes ready to be used with the fanSync app,
we do not believe an additional wall control is necessary.
In our configurator, we do not currently have the option to add either of the optional wall controls shown above. If you wish to purchase one of these controls, please give us a call.
