Do you need the Big Fan?
Ceiling fans are a cost-effective solution to cool or maintain a comfortable temperature in a room. Besides traditional ceiling fans, big ceiling fans are now gaining popularity for areas needing a more powerful performance, such as large alfresco areas, warehouses, offices and restaurants.
A big ceiling fan is a fan that is larger than 54” in diameter, with some going as wide as 106”. These fans usually run at a slower speed than traditional ceiling fans, making them quieter and less interruptive. The larger blade spans are also able to spread a good amount of air across a bigger area, which means more effective cooling and better airflow in a big space.
It makes a lot of sense to have one large ceiling fan instead of installing many smaller, traditional fans in large, open spaces. Firstly, smaller fans would have to run at a high speed to create sufficient breeze, which not only makes the fans noisy but it would also consume more energy. Most large ceiling fans also come with DC motor technology these days, so they cost a lot less to run compared to traditional units.
Secondly, there is the look factor. Having a big large ceiling fan is a great way to update your interior. With so many attractive styles available, it is easy to choose one that can compliment your décor and stand out as an eye-catching statement feature.
