While industrial ceiling fans were once exclusively used in factories and warehouses, more and more homeowners are installing residential versions to modernize and enhance the look of their homes. Known for the use of raw materials, functional features, and exposed hardware, industrial options are highly efficient, affordable, and stylish. If you’re considering buying one for your house, here are a few fans to check out.
A Guide to Industrial-Style Ceiling Fans
1. MINKA-AIRE® XTREME
One of the best large ceiling fans in our inventory, the Minka-Aire Xtreme comes in a wide range of blade sizes, from 65 inches to 96 inches; it’s one of the largest options that works well in a residential environment.
If you need a ceiling fan that operates in wet locations, such as outdoors, the Xtreme H2O is UL-rated and can withstand moisture effectively. Plus, this model, as well as the Xtreme, is virtually silent, which is uncommon for an industrial option. Wobbling won’t be a problem, and the six-speed DC motor can run for years on end without burning out.
2. EMERSON™ LOFT
With a purposeful design and contemporary look, the Emerson Loft has an ENERGY STAR®-qualified motor and airfoil blades. These features create a steady airflow, making this option perfect for larger rooms.
In addition to indoor finishes, such as brushed steel, this ceiling fan comes in white and black options, which are UL rated and stand up against moisture and damp conditions. Also, the airflow is strong enough to keep bugs at bay, making it ideal for outdoor use. Finally, the high wind speeds will keep your home comfortable without heavy AC use, saving you money on your energy bills.
3. MODERN FORMS HYDRA
Designed with water in mind, the Modern Form Hydra is UL wet-rated, so it can be used in an uncovered or partially covered outdoor area, such as a gazebo or lanais. In addition to handling rain, it can be washed using a hose.
The blade sizes range from 80 inches to 120 inches, making this fan impressively large. Also, the DC motor is ENERGY STAR-certified, so it will circulate a lot of air without using a lot of energy, saving you on your utility bills.
It’s available in titanium and bronze finishes. Plus, it can be paired with smart home technology, making it easy to control it from your phone.
4. CRAFTMADE™ MONDO
With a high-efficiency, six-speed DC motor and brushed polished nickel finish, the 72-inch Craftmade Mondo provides functionality and a modern look. Plus, it’s UL-rated and will work well in damp conditions or indoors.
In particular, this ceiling fan is perfect for large rooms with high ceilings and spacious outdoor covered areas; the six silver aluminum blades are aerodynamically shaped with a 13-degree pitch, creating a gentle breeze in larger spaces. Finally, this option is virtually silent, and the motor can run for years without burning out.
5. FANIMATION™ ODYN
Designed with functionality, aesthetics, and efficiency in mind, the Fanimation Odyn has 84-inch blades and comes in a variety of finishes, including matte white, black, and brushed nickel. The six-speed DC motor allows the fan to consume up to 70% less energy than traditional options. Additionally, it can be controlled via your smartphone, making it convenient and easy to use.
6. MINKA-AIRE NINETY-NINE
With a stunning transitional design and 99-inch blade spans, the Minka-Aire Ninety-Nine is ideal for large indoor areas. Also, the all-metal construction makes this king-sized ceiling fan suitable for outdoor spaces.
There are a variety of finishes available, including brushed nickel, distressed koa, and oil rubbed bronze — all of which create a contemporary look. Finally, the six-speed DC motor is highly efficient, nearly silent, and environmentally friendly.
