Cut Your Cooling Costs With These Modern Ceiling Fans


Summer is the time of year when temperatures and energy costs skyrocket.

Did you know that using a ceiling fan in tandem with your air conditioner allows you to keep the thermostat 4 degrees higher without sacrificing comfort?  This amounts to big time savings.

Reducing the temperature on your thermostat can save 1% to 3% on your monthly energy bill.  In addition, your air conditioning system doesn't have to work as hard, extending its life span.

Not only will you reduce your energy consumption, but modern ceiling fans afford homeowners the ability to save money in style.

Green home building is an emerging home trend in 2017.  Features that reduce energy consumption will help the resale value of your home.

Another increasingly popular trend is outdoor ceiling fans on front porches or in the backyard underneath an overhang.  Whether it is indoor or outdoor, there is now a wide selection of modern ceiling fans to spruce up your home.

What Are The Most Popular Modern Ceiling Fan Designs?

The marketplace for modern ceiling fans is truly diverse and cutting edge.  There are different options for different room types and you will discover an abundance of ceiling fans to choose from.

Need a great example of just how versatile modern ceiling fans can be.  Look no further than the Turna LED Mini Patio Fan.

This fan is appropriate for smaller spaces and can be installed both indoors and outdoors.  It is a perfect replacement for a pendant light and further reduces energy costs by utilizing LEDs.

It matches perfectly with your stainless steel kitchen appliances and even comes with a remote control.

The conventional wisdom used to be that fans were inappropriate for ceilings lower than 8 feet.  However, ceiling fan manufacturers have designed modern solutions that mount closely to the ceiling.

One example of a low profile option is the Altus Hugger Ceiling Fan.  It is offered in both aluminum and white to give rooms with a low ceiling that modern look.

Are you looking for a show-stopper?  Some of the ceiling fans on the market will make your guests’ jaws drop with their gorgeous, modern designs.

These designs have the look of a sculpture, are energy efficient, and quieter than a traditional ceiling fan.  Two great examples are the Marea and Torto Ceiling Fans.    

Clearly, there is a stylish variety of modern ceiling fans to fit any space or any interior or exterior design.

Some Shopping Tips for Modern, Energy Efficient Ceiling Fans

Besides a modern, stylish design, what are some other things you need to know when shopping for the perfect fan?

First, look for the Energy Star label to ensure you are buying an energy efficient, environmentally friendly unit.

Second, know the square footage of the room you plan to install the fan in.  This will tell you exactly what size fan blades you need.

A good rule of thumb is that a room greater than 200 square feet requires at least 36-inch blades.  Larger rooms likely need a ceiling fan with 52-inch blades.
