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!
