      1. Emerson Carrera Grande Eco
      2. Monte Carlo Minimalist
      3. Fanimation Distinction DC

    Bedroom ceiling fans must offer quiet power and fine control. Premium fans quietly and efficiently move over 6500 CFM and make at least 3.6 MPH of wind. Look for a 6-speed control with dimming lights.

    How to Buy One that Works

    White Ceiling Fans that Blend In -
    Interior Design Trends

    April 14th, 2017

    There is a definite interior design trend that is pushing our industry. I'm talk about the introduction of larger ceiling fans. This also means white ceiling fans are becoming even more popular. It used to be that for a fifteen by fifteen room (about 200 square feet), you'd want a 52 inch fan.

    Well, things have changed.

    The biggest change is the introduction of the DC motor to the ceiling fan industry. DC motors are far more efficient and provide more torque using less electricity. Manufacturers that have adopted DC Motors can design ceiling fans that are much larger than before. DC Motors handle the extra torque necessary without the motor overheating.

    Electric Ceiling Fans -
    Terry's Favorite DC Motor Choices

    April 7th, 2017

    When we talk about electric ceiling fans, there are so many options. If you are looking for electrical efficiency, Direct Current (DC) Electric Motors are the way to go. Ceiling fan manufacturers are now installing energy efficient Light Emitting Diode (LED) Lights. You have to be careful though - LEDs do not all put out the same amount of light as older light bulbs. If you're not sure where to start, give me a call and I'll help you narrow down your choices.

    To start, here are my favorite DC Motor Electric Ceiling Fans:
