Are DC Ceiling Fans a better Choice?

Here’s why our electricians believe that DC ceiling fans are a better choice:

DC Ceiling fans have much Lower Energy Usage

Are DC Ceiling Fans a better Choice? An AC fan on ‘low’ might use around 30 watts of power, whereas the DC ceiling fans on their lowest settings use less than five watts. So, while your electrician may say ‘typical’ energy savings are around 70%, the reality is sometimes even greater. The DC ceiling fans have a lower energy usage equates directly to lower running costs.

DC Ceiling Fans a better Choice as DC Ceiling fans have a Quieter Operation

The Quieter operation is the most popular feature of the DC ceiling fans. They are much quieter than AC fans at low or medium speeds. Are DC ceiling fans a better choice? The DC ceiling fans are practically silent at low speeds, with no detectable motor noise. They are ideal for overnight usage in bedrooms and more pleasant cooling anywhere.

DC Ceiling Fans a better Choice as DC ceiling fans have More Speed Control

DC Ceiling fans have more speed control compared to the old-style AC fans that tend to only to have three-speed settings. If you have a fan with only three speed settings, it’s probably an AC fan. DC fans do not suffer from this limitation. Most of the DC ceiling fans have six speeds!
