Kichler Ceiling Fan

Happy Ceiling Fan day! Today is the day we celebrate the invention and continuing innovation of what has become the staple for energy efficient cooling in today’s home.

Here are some fun facts about the ceiling fan:

  • By installing just one ceiling fan in your home and bumping the thermostat up a few degrees, you can save hundreds on yearly energy costs.
  • Ceiling fans aren’t just used for cooling either. With a simple flip of a switch, you can circulate warmer air down and bring cooler air up.
  • The first ceiling fan was created in the 1880’s and was steam powered. The electric version was created some years later with the same motor technology used in a sewing machine.
  • Ceiling fans use on average about 30 watts per day on medium speed, whereas the standard AC unit uses about 5,000 watts per day.

Help us celebrate energy conservation today by turning the AC off and flipping that ceiling fan, pedestal fan or desk fan on. In need of a new ceiling fan? Check out our large selection of ceiling fans from Kichler, Minka Aire, Fanimation, and Hunter Fans today.

    I have always wanted to get a vintage ceiling fan, but I am experiencing some difficulties with finding an energy efficient one. Using solar energy and LED light, for example. I am curious if I get a normal ceiling fan I could eventually adapt it to incorporate LED.
