Want to know just how energy efficient your new ceiling fan will be?
Energy-efficiency information on ceiling fans will be easier to find thanks to new government guidelines for retailers.
You'll notice an "Energy Information" box listed for all our ceiling fans.Just scroll down on a ceiling fan product page and click the "Energy Info" tab.
Airflow divided by electricity use gives us the airflow efficiency, an excellent benchmark for each fan design.
Using the airflow efficiency benchmark, you can compare based on efficient operation -- a great tool to help you plan your energy bill.
Keep in mind the chart does not take into account a fan's light kit.
The American Lighting Association (ALA) offers a great document explaining these charts and some other recent changes in how ceiling fans are sold. You can download the document as a PDF file from the ALA website.
Have questions about a particular ceiling fan model? Give us a call; one of our ALA trained and certified ceiling fan experts will be happy to offer product recommendations.
