Stylish Ceiling Fans
These European ceiling fans are a breath of fresh air from the mediocre ceiling fans normally offered to the UK buyer. Designers including Yago Sarri and Benedito Design have come up with a stylish range of practical ceiling fans often incorporating lighting and all controlled by a hand held remote control. These ceiling fans are all suitable for spaces up to 40m² and unlike many ceiling fans on offer in the UK these only require a single (or existing) electrical feed making them stylish and easy to install.
Ceiling fans are of great benefit in the summer, but did you know they also work well in the winter too? Changing the direction of your ceiling fan in the winter by pushing warm air down, helps keep your room at a good temperature and may cut down on energy bills. In the summer months the warm air is pushed up and you remain cool!
How a ceiling fan works - summer
Principals of using ceiling fans in warm weather
Ceiling fans move air. Humans (and our pets) reduce their body temperature through perspiration on the skin. By moving air over the skin our body’s cooling mechanism becomes more efficient and we cool down faster. Unlike air conditioning the fan does not cool the air.
If you have air conditioning using a ceiling fan in combination with the A/C means that cool air is distributed around the room. Using a ceiling fan often means that A/C units can be operated on a lower (and quieter) setting thereby making sleep easier and saving energy.

Principals of using ceiling fans in cold weather
When you have the heating on it may seem counterproductive to operate a ceiling fan but the benefits are twofold. The fan is run in reverse and therefore draws air up from the floor and this forces warm air down into the room. Hot and cold areas within a space are eliminated because of the circulating air.
Ultimately using a fan in combination with heating can create a warmer environment and save energy.

Why install a ceiling fan?
In summer ceiling fans rotate and give off a soft breeze that kick starts air circulation. Moving air prevents the accumulation of heat in the room. If your space has an air conditioning unit the ceiling fan circulates the fresh, cooled air and this often means the a/c unit does not need to work at full capacity and can result in savings of up 40% on running costs. In winter the fan can be used in reverse to draw warm air near the ceiling and distribute this evenly throughout the space. Being able to reduce your thermostat setting buy just 1ºC can reduce your heating bill by 6%.
As well as providing cool/warm air many of these ceiling fans add style to a room and important lighting. Choose from the many listed here.
