What direction should a ceiling fan go in summer?

How do you know which way a ceiling fan should go in summer?

Knowing which way a ceiling fan should go in summer will help you get the most out of your fan.  If you use them right, ceiling fans  can offer you more than a simple cooling solution. They can also help you heat your home efficiently. A lot of customers don’t realise that most ceiling fans can spin in both directions: clockwise and counter-clockwise. All it takes to reverse a ceiling fan is the flick of a switch or touch of a button. This functionality gives ceiling fans a “summer mode” and a “winter mode”. Because each direction works differently, it’s important that your fan is spinning in the best direction for the season.

Ceiling fans in summer mode

In summer, a ceiling fan has one job: to create a windchill effect. To achieve this, fans spins counter-clockwise, creating a draught.  If you’re standing within range of the fan, it will move air around you. This helps any perspiration on your skin to evaporate quicker. Voila! You feel cooler. 

Which way should a ceiling fan go in summer?

Ceiling fans in winter mode

A fan spinning in a clockwise direction draws air upwards. This is an excellent tool in winter when you’re using a heater. Why? Because warm air rises. Imagine turning on a heater in winter. The heated air rises until it’s sitting under the ceiling. So even though the heater is on, the room still feels quite cool! 

Reversing your ceiling fan’s direction draws cooler air up. Circulating air like this also keeps the warm air moving. It’s pushed from underneath the ceiling, back into the room.   


Using summer and winter mode

If you’re not sure how to activate your fan’s reverse feature, start by checking what type of motor you have. Ceiling fans with a DC motor are usually reversible by the remote. If you have an AC fan, it will have a reverse switch on the motor. 

Keep in mind that there may be some exceptions to the examples we’ve outlined above. While it’s true that most fans spin counter-clockwise when they’re in summer mode, some models work differently. At the end of the day, the best way to tell if your fan is in summer mode is to stand underneath it. If you can feel the breeze, it’s in summer mode!

Best Ceiling Fans for Large Areas

The best ceiling fans for large areas will often depend on your individual application. Ask yourself what your priorities are, for example: do you require exceptionally high airflow or do you want a stunning feature for your space? Either way we have you covered.
It will also depend on how large you prefer the fan to be, which of course will be in direct correlation to how large the room is where the fan will be installed. Our larger ceiling fans range from 56” (142cm) in diameter to a massive 95” (241cm). View our entire Large Ceiling Fan range.

The largest fan currently at 95” is the Rhino ceiling fan, with 9 durable aluminium blades and an airflow of up to 17,234 m3/hr. This model is also available in a 79” as well as a colour combination with a brushed chrome motor and black blades.

The highest air movers within our range however, are both 84” options. These include the Hercules ceiling fans which have superseded the incredibly popular Maelstrom featuring a few minor cosmetic changes whilst still maintaining its industrial style. It reaches a maximum of 24,384 m3/hr and even on low moves 8,765 m3/hr. That’s almost as much as a standard ceiling fan yet on the lowest speed!

The Odyn has a unique, designer and industrial style utilising High Volume, Low speed technology (HVLS) ideal for sweeping airflow in large spaces. It efficiently circulates a powerful 19,010 m3/hr on the highest of 6 speeds and reverse functionality for use all year round. Even the first speed of is the equivalent of a standard 52” fan moving 9,429 m3/hr.

best ceiling fans for large areas

A commonly asked question is what is the largest fan that is suitable for outdoor, undercover use? Even though the range is limited especially toward the higher end of the spectrum we do have a couple great options worth considering.
The Trident DC Ceiling Fan has options available with a 70” blade span, an impressive airflow of 16,846 m3/hr and is also IP23 rated. Note that only the models with a black or white motor are suitable for outdoor, undercover use. The Satin Nickel models are suitable for indoor use only.

The second outdoor option when determining the best ceiling fans for large areas is whether you would like it to make a stunning feature. Particularly if in a tropical inspired area the Windpointe V2 ceiling fan might be the ideal option. It has the option of a 70” or 80” blade span and intricate detailing on the blade arms. The 70” models have a maximum airflow of 12,887 m3/hr and the 80” models reach 14,092 m3/hr.

Keep in mind that your space may not always require the largest fans in our range. If you’ll be sitting directly under where the fan is installed then a 56” above the dining table may just do the trick. Another common approach is to segment the space and have a few smaller fans placed throughout. This will increase the number of fans you have to choose from within our range ensuring that the style selected perfectly fits in with the décor. In this scenario you could always opt for a fan like Fanco’s Choice Recommended Origin DC with a high airflow of 13,446 m3/hr and ideal for sectional use in open plan areas.

best ceiling fans for large areas

Want your fan to also be your main lighting source? Well every single one of the options listed in this blog, except for the Rhino, are either light adaptable or have a model available with an integrated light!

What does CCT LED stand for and what advantages does it have?

You may be seeing the term CCT LED light on some of our listings but perhaps are a bit unsure of what this actually means and how it would be a benefit to you.

CCT refers to Colour Changing Technology. Simply put, rather than the LED Panel being one temperature and having to choose whether you would prefer the yellow glow of a warm white light or a cooler, more natural white, this feature provides you with the option to interchange between shades. This can be done directly from the LED panel which would require removing the diffuser (glass cover) to set the light to the preferred colour at any given time. Generally, each fan with this technology is limited to three temperature options ranging from Warm White to Daylight.

If a little unsure what temperatures would suit your space this will also give you the flexibility to choose the lighting to a certain degree once installed. In a more modern home, specifically in living or dining rooms a natural or cool white is quite common. Whereas, more traditional homes see our customers leaning towards a warm white, particularly for bedrooms.
This now also ensures the same styled fan can be installed throughout your home keeping it consistent, while providing the versatility to select the appropriate temperature for each space based on your requirements.

To better understand the difference between the glows each temperature would emit within the room take a look at our Ceiling Fan Glossary, which gives you a general description that may help you visualise the light output.

Otherwise the Kelvin scale which is used to measure the temperature will be able to show you in a little more detail where a certain temperature or value lands on the wider spectrum. See below:

cct led kelvin scale

Which fans in our range have a CCT LED Light option?

A few examples of the models that utilise this new technology are as follows:

The Urban 2 DC which allows you to interchange between Warm White (3000k), Neutral White (4000k) and Cool White (5000k).

Another fan available with this same combination is the Martec Elite.

The Tempest DC LED range has the option to select Warm White (3000k), Neutral White (4200k) and Daylight (6500k).

Ceiling Fans for High Ceilings

Ceiling fans for high ceilings are available within our range and here are a few tips in order to find a fan that may just work for your space.

Ceiling fans with a higher than average drop measurement

When looking for a suitable option there are a couple of key factors to take advantage of.
First and foremost keep an eye out for those ceiling fans that have a longer than average drop from ceiling to blade. Most of our customers find that they prefer their fan to sit at the 2.5m mark (from the floor to the blades) and therefore, if your ceiling height falls under the 3m mark a fan with an average drop of 30cm or more might be sufficient to have your fan sit at this point without requiring an extension rod.

Extension Rods

When looking for appropriate ceiling fans for high ceilings particularly if beyond 3 metres high then it is generally recommended that a fan be chosen that has extension rods available as an accessory. Most fans will have a 90cm rod available so this shouldn’t limit your options all that much. However, if the ceiling is significantly higher than standard and above the 3m point then fans that have an option of a 180cm rod or even a 240cm alternative would be extremely beneficial and worth considering. This will allow you to lower the fan resulting in more efficient performance as the lower the fan the more you will feel the airflow. Note that extension rods come in set lengths but can be cut to size by your electrician.

ceiling fans for high ceilings extension rods

High Ceilings with a Rake

Commonly if a ceiling is higher than the 3m mark it is often also angled and as a result not only do you need to find ceiling fans for high ceilings but also a fan which is compatible for a rake to a certain degree. In our range some fans will only be suitable for flat ceilings and others will be suitable up to 38 or even 40 degrees. This information if available will be included on the listings so just simply double check that the fan selected will be suitable for the degree of your ceiling rake. Note: Fans with a ‘hugger style’ (cylindrical motor that sits flush on the ceiling) cannot be extended and are only suitable for installation on flat ceilings.

Bedroom Ceiling fans – A guide to choosing the right fan for your bedroom

Bedroom ceiling fans are a great tool to create the optimal environment for sleeping. They are cost efficient and the right model can look great in your space.  Trying to choose a ceiling fan can be daunting because of the variety of fans on the market. Although you could choose any ceiling fan for your bedroom, it’s worth thinking about how different features may affect a sleeping environment.
The guide below will assist you to identify features to look for and find the best fit for your bedroom.
Once you’ve decided what style and colours would best suit your interior, consider:

What size or blade span (diameter) is best for bedroom ceiling fans?

To give you a basic idea, a 48-52” blade span is suits most standard bedrooms and for those larger bedrooms 52-56” fans are a good choice.

Size is important for two main reasons:

  1. Aesthetics. For the room to look balanced you need to have a fan that is proportionate to the space: not too big and not too small.
  2. Coverage. How much space do you want to cool? A standard size fan might suit a large bedroom if the fan is positioned straight above the bed.  A larger sized ceiling fan might be a better choice if  you won’t be directly underneath the fan when you’re using it.

If you think a larger fan is too powerful, remember you can choose the speed setting. Most fans have three or more speeds so you can operate it on the lowest speed to create a gentler air flow.

If you need a very small bedroom ceiling fan, have a look at our Small Ceiling Fans category.

Which Blade Material would be better for bedroom ceiling fans?

The main reason customers think about material for bedroom ceiling fans is because they are worried about noise. Blade Material doesn’t always impact the sound a fan makes because there are other contributing factors. That said, we find that our customers choose plastic or timber blades for bedrooms especially if they want fan with high airflow.

AC or DC – Which Motor Type is best for bedroom ceiling fans?

Most people will choose a ceiling fan with a DC motor for their bedroom because they are famous for being a quieter choice. It’s still worth considering an AC motor for the bedroom, especially if it’s very good quality, which may reduce the noise.

DC Motors

  • Slightly quieter
  • More energy efficient
  • 5 or 6 selectable speeds.
  • Usually only come with a remote, not a wall control

Our DC range can be viewed here.

AC Motors

  • Usually come with wall control, may have the option of a remote
  • Usually has less speed options than DC
  • AC motors tend to last longer than DC motors

The Final Question is Light or no Light?

Ceiling fans have three main options for lights:

Light adaptable

These fans will are usually packaged with a light or have a light listed as an accessory to the fan.

 Integrated Light

These are inbuilt fixtures, which means that the customer cannot add or remove a light once they’ve made a decision. Models with lights might have a separate listing to their counterparts without lights.

 Fans with no light option at all.

Some people prefer to have the fan separate from the primary light source. If you like a particular design but can’t find the lighting option you prefer, contact us. Our customer service team can suggest a similar design with the lighting features you want.


LED panels are one of the most popular options for a bulb because they have a longer life expectancy than standard globes. We also have fans which have a traditional B22 or E27 fitting with the option of to purchasing suitable LED or standard globes. It comes down to aesthetics and how you would like the light to fit with the fan.

Ceiling Fans with Dimmable LED Lights

LED lights have become increasingly popular as energy efficient lighting solutions, significantly reducing the amount of energy a household consumes to cutting costs of electricity usage. In the modern era, new technology has been developed that now integrates ceiling fans with LED lighting. Ceiling Fans have taken a large step in the right direction as we find that many Ceiling Fans now come included with an LED light or the option of purchasing an LED light as an accessory to fit with the Ceiling Fan.

There are an endless amount of options and we will take a look at Ceiling Fans with LED lights that are compatible with dimmable remote controls. Dimmable remote controls give you greater control, adding a layer of versatility into the household. When previously installing a ceiling fan with a light, the choices were limited to only switch the light on or off. Today we now use a dimmable remote control giving the user a favourable experience reducing or maximising the amount of electricity output of an LED light.

It positively benefits a domestic environment by saving energy and extending the lifecycle of the LED globes or lamps. In turn dimmable remote controls can be programmed throughout the day or night to perform at an optimum level of light used in a room or space. Ceiling Fans Warehouse has many dimmable remote control choices at our disposal with the two most popular options including the Fansync Bluetooth Remote Control and the Fanco Dimmable Remote Control.

Dimmable Bluetooth Remote Control

The Fansync Remote Control functions via Bluetooth technology packaged together with selected Three Sixty ceiling fans enabling you to endure a seamless experience indoors.

Compatible with a diverse range of IPhone and Android devices, the Fansync Remote Control uses dimming support to lower the percentage of light by the simplicity of your fingertips. This allows you to control the level of light you wish to set in one or multiple rooms. With the Bluetooth remote controls advanced technology it enables a living space to be transformed into the ultimate cinema experience for example by using an automatic timer to dictate the fans speed to low, medium or high, and the degree of lighting which best suits the needs of the living space.

Dimmable DC with LED Model

The DC motor Urban 2 with LED light is another option that can be dimmed via the remote control. Packed with features the Urban 2 is equipped with a 3000k warm white LED light, its low colour temperature of light suits a multitude of bedroom settings, a perfect choice for warm white lighting.


This top rated ceiling fan is eco-friendly and comes equipped with a dimmable remote control. It performs at its optimum in three stages; the first step is best performed needing the full degree of light in your bedroom space. The second step for the 24w LED light will switch initially to 50% of lighting, typical settings which would need this level of light exposed include spending the night reading a book. The third and final step switches the light to 15% of its full capabilities, the dimmable remote control would be ideal for using the light at this percentage whilst watching television before bedtime. The Urban 2 can be programmed for up to 8 hours to set the degree of lighting for your requirements and is an excellent option to be used as a bedroom fan with its soothing DC motor that performs at a low noise levels whilst being an extremely energy efficient fan.

Low Profile Ceiling Fans

Low profile ceiling fans are an excellent choice for spaces with low ceilings. These are also known as ‘hugger’ fans as they have a very short ceiling to blade distance and therefore hug the ceiling.

How do I know if I need a hugger fan?

Generally it is recommended that a fan should sit at least 2.1 metres above the floor. This optimises the airflow in the room, whilst reducing the danger for someone who is tall. A low profile fan can also be a good option for smaller rooms as it can make the room feel less crowded in comparison to a regular ceiling fan.

Which low profile fan is right for me?

With such a large range of low profile fans, it can be difficult to determine which is the most suitable. Some factors that can help you narrow down your search are whether or not the fan is light adaptable, the material of the blades and energy efficiency. The Mercator Lima is a 3 blade fan and is available in white or brushed chrome. This fan has a DC motor so you can be assured that it will be quiet and energy efficient to run. The Lima comes with a 6 speed, reversible remote included and has a top speed airflow of 10,078m3/hr. It is a great value hugger fan and the blades sit only 197mm below the ceiling.

For those after a more traditional style fan, the Hunter Low Profile is the one for you. As its name suggests, you won’t need to duck under this fan as it sits approx. 198mm from the ceiling. The best thing about the Low Profile is that it is customisable. The fan comes with both 44” and 52” blades which are reversible so you have a choice of 2 colours as well. This fan can be operated by pull cord, wall control or remote control and is compatible with all hunter light kits.

Is there a hugger fan I can use outdoors?

If you are looking for a low profile fan that can be installed in an outdoor area such as an alfresco area or a veranda, the Revolution 2 ticks all the boxes. This fan is available in white, brushed aluminium and matte black and has an IP rating of IP44 making it suitable for coastal areas and areas with high exposure to rain. The Revolution 2 comes either with a wall control or a remote control so no matter how you want to operate your fan, we’ve got you covered. With a modern look and durable weatherproof plastic blades, the Revolution 2 is a great choice for both outdoor and indoor use.

As you can see, there is a hugger ceiling fan to suit every requirement and taste, so even when you have a low ceiling you are still spoilt for choice.

Reduce your impact on the environment with a fan!

The appliances that we use around the home can significantly influence the amount of energy we consume and therefore our impact on the environment. If we as a global community can begin to make more environmentally friendly choices, we have the potential to change the footprint that we leave on our planet. In Australian homes, 40% of the energy we use is for heating and cooling1 and if we are able to modify the ways in which we heat and cool our homes, this could potentially have a huge impact on our energy consumption as well as our energy bills!

Ceiling, wall and pedestal fans can all be used to cool the home and are much more energy efficient than other cooling systems. The Australian Government – Department of Industry, Innovation and Science recommends to ‘use your fan as your first cooling option’ as it is the most energy efficient method of cooling the home. Fans are generally also much cheaper than other cooling methods such as evaporative coolers and air conditioners. Wall and pedestal fans also provide the convenience of a DIY installation as they often come with a flex and plug. Fans can also be used in conjunction with other cooling systems to reduce running costs and improve energy efficiency. For example, after cooling a room with an air conditioner, you can turn it off and switch on the fan in order to circulate the conditioned air.

Reversible ceiling fans can also be used to distribute warm air in the winter. On the winter setting, the blades spin clockwise in order to push the heat back down after it has risen to the ceiling. This can allow you to put your heater settings lower and use less energy whilst staying toasty warm throughout the winter.

We have a wide variety of ceiling, wall and pedestal fans available to suit every budget and style choice without compromising on energy efficiency.

The Latest In Ceiling Fan Operation – Fansync Bluetooth Remote Control

This new technology is compatible with all ThreeSixty, Fanimation and Emerson AC fans. It uses exciting new software that has the potential to change the way we use our ceiling fans. You’ll never have to worry about replacing remote batteries or losing the remote again!

Our DC Ceiling Fan Picks for Summer 2015-16

Our DC Ceiling Fan Picks for Summer 2015-16

Summer is fast approaching – with early heat waves letting us know it is going to be a long and hot one. So it’s time to get around to getting those ceiling fans and get them into the ceiling before the next heat waves hits!

We’ve picked two of our favourite DC fans for this summer as our best buys this summer 2015/16 to tell you about – the Eco Motion DC and the Milano DC.

One of the reasons we rate these DC fans is that they are both modern 4 blade 52” fans that come in white or brushed chrome, and they both have a light option and include remotes. This means that they are going to be a good choice for almost anyone.

The Eco Motion is the best value for money DC fan on the market. It features 5 speeds as well as a timer function on the remote. It is reversible so it can be used in winter to keep the hot air down. It’s smart, modern look will suit most locations, and its metal blades at a 21degree pitch mean it definitely moves lots of air on the higher speeds! The Eco Motion model with light is a great option for a DC fan with light and remote package. The light takes 2 x B22 globes (max 15w) that can be LED, Compact Fluorescent or Halogen – giving you lots of flexibility in achieving just the amount and type of light you want for that room.

The Milano DC is the latest addition to the Milano range, which has long been a popular fan for a really minimalist, high quality finish fan, favoured by many designers. Its 4 timber blades insert directly into the motor, contributing to its timeless design. The Milano DC offers 6 speeds and for the model with light – a dimmable LED light fitting which fits an 18W Warm white globe.

Both fans are pretty new to the market and both are from well established brands – Fanco for the Eco Motion and Cinni for the Milano. We’ve tested these ourselves, and we’ve also had a great feedback from our customers so far. Both fans also come with in-home warranties, so if there are any issues that need an electrician to fix, it will all be taken care of for you.

So what are you waiting for?!

Aeratron Ceiling Fan Range Expanded!

The much loved and hugely popular Aeratron ceiling fan range has been extended this year to include more variety in sizes, colour and functionality. The popular e500 series which included the e502 and e503 models, are being superseded by the new AE series which launched early 2015.

While the original Aeratron was available in a 49.5″ blade span model, the new AE Aeratron range has two available sizes; 50″ and 60″ models.

The new AE fans still come in the staple colours of White, Silver and Black, however Aeratron have also added Dark Walnut and Light Pine to the range for something a bit different.

The AE Aeratron ceiling fans now have the option to add a light. A light accessory can be purchased which replaces the middle section of the fan with a part that has an integrated 6w LED. These are available for both the two and three blade designs in both sizes.

The expansion of the Aeratron range gives you more choice and functionality to suit your requirements while keeping its popular style and energy efficiency. We expect this range to continue its popularity into Summer 2015/2016.

Ceiling Fans with Warm lights!

Here at Ceiling Fans Warehouse we get a lot of customers who want fans with lights, and they want energy saving lights but not the ones with the harsh cool white globes! This may be especially important for bedrooms. Great news, we have plenty of options for you. There are too many to just list, but we can give you a general guide.

Many fans can have lights, either they come with their own ‘integrated’ or built in light, or they are light adaptable and this means you can choose from a range of fan lights. Fans which have integrated lights sometimes just have one globe fitting option, and some have 2 or 3 choices. With fan lights that are adaptable to different fan models, you also have some models which only have one globe fitting and others which have several. As there are so many options, the best way is to narrow down first the fans you like, then look at the light options.

Within the globe fitting options, there are two main possibilities. The first is that it only takes one specific type of globe. This is mostly a more unusual globe, like an LED or other type of energy saving globe. These models often come with a cool white globe or warm light globe included. Our most popular warm light LED is the Fanco Urban Ceiling Fan with 24w LED Light, fan available in a white or brushed aluminium finish.

The second possibility is that it is a globe fitting which takes a certain size of either Edison or Bayonet globes, but that can be halogen, energy saving fluorescent or LED. You will therefore have more flexibility with this option. These fittings normally have a limitation of a maximum wattage (eg max watt 40w per globe). This means that you can use the type of globe you prefer, as long as it meets this requirement. The current options that are usually available are normal halogen globes (always warm white), energy saving halogen (saves about 30%, also always warm white), energy saving fluoro (saves more, and have a choice of warm or cool white – check the globe box), and sometimes even LED globes will fit!

So as you can see, most of the time you will be able to find a warm white globe solution for your light. If you need any help, please contact our friendly and knowledgeable sales staff!

It has a flowing, three bladed design and comes in your standard White and Silver, but also an elegant Antique Bronze colour.

What is the DC Ceiling Fan of your Choice?

Struggling With A Ceiling Fan Choice? Here are our top rated picks for 2018

July 2018 Update

Fanco Origin DC – Apart from its November 2017 Choice Rating, the best thing about the Origin is its remarkable shape. The unique curvature of the body and blades moves 13,446 cubic metres of air an hour. But the shape also accommodates an LED light bulb if the base cap is removed. Adding a light to a ceiling fan usually completely changes its shape, but the Origin maintains its look with or without a light.

Vento Swish DC – The Swish is sure to turn heads when it makes its Australian debut. Its award winning designer, Karim Rashid teamed up with Vento to create a truly innovative ceiling fan . The Swish’s DC motor and whimsical looping design creates virtually no sound when the fan is in operation.  It has a diameter measuring just 48 inches and generates an airflow of 8, 665 m3/hr, proving once and for all that great design can come in small packages.


Fanco Eco Silent DC – For a more classical style, look no further than the Eco Silent. Like the Swish, the Eco Silent aspires to make as little noise as possible when it is switched on. There are five versions available in the Eco Silent range. The white model allows the choice of adding a light to either the 48″ or 52″ size. The black colour is only available without a light in the 52″ size.

Fanco Eco Breeze DC- Another recent addition to the Fanco range, the Eco Breeze has a tapered motor which creates a pleasing shape. This is particularly true for the model with the light option, as the light lengthens the fan, almost capping off the look.  Like all of our other 2018 picks, the Eco Breeze promises to deliver a strong performance. It uses as little as 4 watts on its lowest setting and can rotate as many as 175 times per minute.



Fanco Infinity-i DC Ceiling Fan – The Infinity has been upgraded since it first made our list of favourites a few years back. It still has the popular Scandinavian slimline design, but can now be installed on angled ceilings. It also has a light option available. With a damp rated IP rating, the Infinity DC is suitable for both indoor and outdoor undercover areas.



Aeratron AE3 & Aeratron AE2 DC Ceiling Fans – This is not the first time we’ve given the Aeratron the nod, but there’s no overlooking this range. The AE2’s design looks deceptively simple but the pair of asymmetrical blades are responsible for the fan’s high airflow. The AE3 applies the range’s signature flicked blades to a 3 bladed model, which elevates the design without complicating things.


Atlas Irene DC Ceiling Fan – The Irene is another returning champion. Its unique design is inspired by aviation forms, and is available in a wide range of motors and colours. With solid wood blades, the Irene-3 and Irene-4 will stand out in any room. It’s suitable for both indoors and undercover outdoor areas.

October 2016 Update

Fanco Eco Motion DC Ceiling Fan – The highly rated Eco Motion ceiling fan is known for its efficiency, affordability and durability. With a list of excellent features such as its high airflow, a LED light option, remote control as standard and a 5 speed DC motor, the Eco Motion is continuing to be a popular choice of ceiling fan in Australia. For more information visit: Top Choices for Summer

Hunter Pacific Revolution Ceiling Fan – With a stunning slimline design, the Revolution caters to modern homes with its architectural form. With an IP rating of IP44, it is also well loved as an alfresco ceiling fan. With varying models with and without DC motor and available with wall control or remote control, the Revolution is a great ceiling fan option. For more information visit: Revolutionise Your Space with the Revolution 2

Mercator City DC Ceiling Fan – With its curved quality plastic blades, DC motor and light option, it is no wonder the City DC ceiling fan is another popular pick for this coming summer. One of the main advantages of the City is its low profile (hugger) design, meaning it is great for places with low ceilings.

Mercator Manly DC Ceiling Fan – Similar in design to the City above, the Manly offers the same great features but has a more standard look when installed.
Milano DC Ceiling Fan – Well known for its powerful air movement and modern design, the Milano ceiling fan collection is a popular choice for modern homes. Models available with LED light and remote control and varying colours.

Mercator Trinidad II DC Ceiling Fan – A striking fan, the Trindad II ceiling fan offers great performance with a modern design. Available with LED light it can be a very functional and beautiful addition to a room.

Mercator Grange DC – A steady favourite, the Grange DC ceiling fan is both energy efficient and offers a popular style.

AeroDC Quantum DC Ceiling Fan – Configure the Quantum ceiling fan to suit your taste, install with either 3 or 4 blades. The Quantum DC is energy efficient with quiet plywood blades and the option or a warm or cool LED light. With excellent performance, this fan is a solid ceiling fan choice.

2014 Update

For those invested in saving energy, the range of DC motor ceiling fans is getting bigger. DC motor ceilings fans are fans which have a DC motor, meaning they can function using less electricity, and then have a converter inside to be able to connect to our normal AC electricity grid. This complicated, and new technology, is part of what makes these fans more expensive than their regular AC motor counterparts. However, saving electricity means you will be savings dollars too!

Available Now:

The Eco Motion DC ceiling fan is on its way, bringing a great new option to the DC range. This fan has a simple, industrial style, with 4 metal blades and a 21 degree blade pitch.

To Remote Or Not To Remote


One of the most obvious differences between ceiling fans in the type of control they use. Deciding which type of control you would like isn’t always easy and there are a few things to keep in mind before you make your choice.

Ceiling fans have three types of controls:

  • Remote controls.
  • Wall control
  • Pull cord: The original method was to pull a cord hanging from the motor. It turns the fan on and off and sometimes change speeds. This option is still available in some traditionally styled fans.

Generally when you buy a fan, it will come with just one of these control methods included, but many will have the option of using another method instead at an extra cost. Not all fans have the option of a remote control, but most do. Some will have it as the standard form of control. Others will have a pull cord or wall control and offer the remote as an optional extra.

Ceiling fans with remotes offer many advantages, but they are not the right solution for everyone. Sometimes they are necessary, sometimes they are more convenient, and sometimes you are better off without them!

When you need to have a remote control

There are cases where installing a fan will only be possible with a remote control.  You may not have access to run the wiring through the ceiling and down the wall to install a wall control.  This is common for apartments with another floor above them, where there is no access the wiring in the ceiling. However, there is a light in the room, so you can replace the light with a fan and light, and use a remote option to control both.

You will also need a remote control is if it is the only option for the fan model you choose. This is especially true for DC fans – which currently are only available with remote controls. So you might solve the problem of whether to use a remote when you choose your ceiling fan.

When a remote control is optional

If accessing the wiring is not a problem, you may still find a remote more convenient:

  • In a bedroom, a remote will allow you to turn the fan on and off from bed.
  • If you have more than one fan: In a large space (such as a living room or restaurant) where you  want to your fans simultaneously (ie they all turn on together). In this case, you can install radio frequency remotes, set them all on the same frequency. They will all turn on and on to the same speed from the one remote control handset.

When you are better off avoiding a remote control!

There are some cases where you may be better off avoiding a remote control for your ceiling fan:

  • When you are on a limited budget. Remotes will usually add about $50-$100 to the cost of the fan.
  • If you think the remote may get lost. This is sometimes a concern for people who have young children or pets in the house. You can get around this by choosing a model which comes with a cradle for the remote.
  • If you don’t want to avoid replacing batteries. If you do not want to deal with flat batteries in the remote, a wall control or pull cord is a better option.
  • Finally, remotes will break down over time and need to be replaced. Pull cords and wall controls are more durable ( unless some external factors causes damage to them) so they need less maintenance.
  • If you are noise sensitive. Most remote controls create a beep sound to indicate that the handset and receiver are communicating properly. This also happens when the isolation switch is turned on, to indicate that power is going to the receiver. It’s possible to switch this off on some remotes, so if something you’re concerned about please contact us for suggestions.

So it’s really up to you if you decide ‘to remote or not to remote’. It depends on your situation, your preferences, and your budget!

Fan blades: It’s not just size that counts!

A fan blade is a fan blade, right? Yes, but there is a bit more science to it. There are many factors which affect how effective a blade (or to be more precise, a set of blades) will be in moving air.


Size (Length) – The longer the blades are, the larger area they will cover. As a general rule, you can expect to feel the air a metre further than the diameter of the fan blades. The standard size you will find today is 52” (1.3m diameter), and this is a good size for most situations. However, there are large ceiling fans which go up to a 2m diameter. And of course, for very small areas, you might only need a small fan, and these are available too!

Weight/Material – As you can imagine, a heavier blade will move more air than a lighter blade. Most blades do not vary very much in weight. However, there are some fans which use very light materials, such as real palm leaves, to create a tropical look. These fans will still move air, but less than fans with plastic, timber or metal blades. Just a matter of balancing how much you want the fan for looks and how much you need it to move air!

Shape – A blade which is too wide will be less effective as it will create too much weight on the motor and this will mean the fan will not reach optimum speed. As a result, you will get less air movement.

Pitch – A decent pitch is very important to moving air. A blade which is at a flat angle won’t push any air down. Of course, you don’t want to take it to extremes because a blade with too much pitch won’t be effective either! A decent pitch is normally between 12 and 22degrees.

Quantity – Contrary to popular opinion, when it comes to ceiling fans blades, less equals more. All other things being equal, a fan with 3 blades will move more air than a fan with 4 or 5 blades.

So how do I choose?! In reality, you won’t get a lot of choice because most of these factors are fixed. The manufacturers take these factors into account and try to balance function and aesthetics. The next best option is to talk to a ceiling fans expert and explain what you need to them! You can discuss your needs with our friendly and knowledgeable sales staff on the phone and have your order shipped to you. It couldn’t be easier!

Ceiling Fans With Light And Remote

Ceiling fans are becoming more and more functional, energy efficient and stylish as demand for these features increase. Ceiling fans with light and remote are one of our most popular packages with options for LED light and modern remotes to fulfill the need for extra functionality.

Additionally a remote is not just an operational convenience, it can also make installation faster and easier without the need to run additional wires. Most remotes will come standard with a wall bracket so it can be placed neatly on your wall while you can have it accessible to you from the comfort of your couch or bed as well!

Some of our most popular ceiling fans with light and remote options are the Mercator Grange ceiling fan with light and remote and the Urban 2 ceiling fan with light and remote.

The Grange is an exceptional fan with the option to purchase a DC motor model that offers great energy efficiency as well as the option for a LED light to further its energy saving, all while having a modern design. Its DC motor coupled with its timber blades make this one of the quietest ceiling fans on the market. A remote control is standard for this fan and offers 6 selectable speeds.

Get your Ceiling Fan into Winter Gear

Did you know your fan probably has a winter setting? This simply means that it rotates clockwise instead of anti-clockwise like in summer. This has the effect of pulling air up instead of pushing air down. So why would this help you? Well, by pushing the air that is below up to the ceiling, the hotter air, which is sitting up above the ceiling fan, gets circulated down. Hence, you keep the hot air down instead of losing it up near the ceiling. This can be especially handy for those with very high ceilings.

You only need to run the fan on low speed, and you shouldn’t really feel the breeze – only very slightly if you do. By making better use of this hot air, you can keep your heater settings on lower, and therefore save on energy and consequently quite a few dollars! Fans only use minimal electricity to run on low speed, most around 15-20watts, which is the same as an energy saving light bulb!

To find your winter/summer setting, simply check the body of the motor of the fan. There is usually a switch on the motor and it will often have a sticker labeling which setting is summer and which is winter. Alternatively, if you have a DC motor fan, your summer/winter reverse switch will probably be on the remote control.

If you are not sure if the ceiling fan you are interested in has this winter setting option, you will usually find this information in the “Additional Information” tab on the individual product pages. There should be a line headed “Reversible” and there it will say whether it is “reversible by remote”, or “reversible by motor”. If it is reversible by remote, this means that you can select to operate the fan in reverse (winter mode) from a control on your remote. If it is reversible from the motor, there is likely a switch on the motor to change to winter mode.

Not Too Late To Buy A Ceiling Fan

As summer continues to give us lovely sunny days and warm weather you may think you’ve missed the prime opportunity to purchase a ceiling fan. However it is never too late to buy a ceiling fan – and here’s why.

Purchasing and installing a ceiling fan is an all-seasons activity. Some even prefer it.

What many people do not think of is that an electrician in most cases is needed to install your ceiling fans, and not surprisingly they can be hard to book in the lead up to summer. Therefore even if you have missed your chance this summer, getting your fans up and running in alternative seasons isn’t a bad idea at all!

Additionally, a ceiling fan can be a great asset through winter as well. Many ceiling fans come with a summer and winter setting which means you can switch the rotation of the fan to help distribute and provide cool air in summer, then help distribute warm air in winter. This mode is usually changeable from the motor, however some have the functionality available on their remote control. View the specifications and features of each fan to look out for a “summer / winter mode”.

So just because the brunt of summer has passed doesn’t mean you have missed the best opportunity to make full use of a ceiling fan. Utilise your fan in all seasons and especially be prepared before next summer.

Pedestal Fans vs Ceilings Fans

Pedestal Fans versus Ceilings Fans

So, summer has arrived and you’ve been thinking about getting a fan. The question is, to get a pedestal (or wall mounted) fan, or a ceiling fan?

There are, of course, advantages of each option, see our lists below to work out which option will best suit you!

Advantages of Pedestal/wall mounted fans:

  • Very quick fix! You can pick one up when you start getting hot and use it straight away!
  • If you have an existing powerpoint, you won’t need an electrician (just a handy person), so you can save some serious $$$
  • You can put them away when you are not using them
  • With pedestal fans, you can move them around the house easily, allowing you to point them exactly where you need the air!
  • Pedestal (and desk) fans are great for renting – you don’t need permission and you can take them with you when you go!
  • Good for rooms with particularly low ceilings, you can have the fan standing or mount it on the wall. The cage over the blades adds to security when it is in reach.
  • Great for when installing a ceiling fan is too expensive or costly, due to difficulty accessing the ceiling, the wiring etc

See our range of pedestal fans including wall, floor, desk and commercial fans at our sister site Pedestal Fans Warehouse.

Advantages of Ceiling fans

  • Use the least electricity – for an AC motor fan, about 15-20watts on low speeds, and for a DC motor fan, about 1-4watts on low speed!
  • Lot’s more options of style, and you can really add to the decor of the property, check out our really cool Designer fans and tropical fans for example!
  • Majority can have a light on them, so you can just have one fixture which has both fan and light.
  • Good quality ceiling fans are totally quiet, you may only get a bit of air movement noise, like a whooshing – from some particularly powerful fans when they are on high speed.
  • Good quality fans also usually have great warranties – including an ‘in-home’ component, which means the manufacturer will organise and cover the cost of the electrician if there is a fault or problem which requires this.

With the heat of the Australian summer, outdoor areas are hugely popular in both traditional and modern homes. Alfresco / patio areas are being built as standard in new homes as well as being top on the list for renovations.

How do you know what fans can be installed outdoors?

The majority of ceiling fans are designed for indoor use, so they cannot be used in outdoor areas. Even if you install your fan in an undercover area with only one wall open to the outdoors, moisture will still find its way into your fan and cause damage.

So when looking for a fan for the outdoors, you will need to firstly assess the environment around you.

Ask yourself:
1. Do I live in a coastal area?
2. Will the fan be installed where it may be exposed to water reaching it?

Take great attention to the IP rating of a fan as it is an internationally recognised rating. These ratings are attributed to whether the fan can withstand water ingress and/or water penetration.

IP44 – suitable for wet locations, tested for water splashing against the enclosure from any direction.

Damp Rated – suitable for fully covered outdoor areas.

316 Stainless Steel – suitable for fully covered outdoor areas.

Coastal – not all outdoor fans are resistant to salt spray, so if you live in a coastal area, make sure your fan is coastal rated.

Materials For Outdoors

You will need all weather resistant material for your outdoor ceiling fan. While timber blades will absorb moisture, all weather plastic blades and stainless steel blades are what to look for.
