Ceiling fans have made their way onto interior decorators’ blacklists for their maligned aesthetics and their noisiness. The industry is determined to turn them into style assets, so today’s offerings are sleek, contemporary, and unobtrusive. Your fan should be a work of art, and designers are up for the challenge.
Exquisite and Intelligent
High ceilings and large rooms demand a dramatic look proportional to the environment. You’ll find a number of new designs that are bold and worthy enough of being a room’s focal point. Not all new models are quite as domineering. Some are slim, sleek, and subtle, blending into the walls and ceiling in style. Sophistication isn’t everything. Intelligence is a necessary part of today’s smart building, so you might want a fan that turns itself on automatically. Learning thermostats can get to know your preferences and deliver a personalized service, and motion sensors keep your utility bills down.
Fan blades are frequently treated as design features in themselves, but if you want a model that betrays its purpose, a caged design will allow your fan to masquerade as a light fitting or an artwork.
Stability and improved industrial design allow today’s fans to operate silently. Light fans are quiet fans, but their primary purpose should not be ignored. Regardless of how pretty your design-first model is, it’s useless if it doesn’t cool down your residents. Design excellence also translates into lower utility bills. Varying speeds can mimic outdoor breezes, while sleep mode adjusts itself throughout the night. In winter, some fans can be adjusted to generate and distribute heat from your heating and cooling system.
In Arizona and the hot deserts of the southwest, ceiling fans assist evaporative coolers. Buildings cooled by AC benefit from ceiling fans as amenities, as moving air cools those present in a room.
