The Top 5 Ceiling Fans

Become a Fan of Stylish Air Conditioning

Ceiling fans are a statement, as well as being practical. Most will come complete with integrated light fitting, so you can illuminate and cool your room with one purchase.

Also, most contemporary ceiling fans have the option of using a remote control, so you can easily adjust the lighting or breeze level in your room at the touch of a button.

Contemporary ceiling fans come in a range of styles to suit any home décor, and make an attractive focal point, especially when you’re just sitting back with nothing much to do.

All of the fans we’ve reviewed here have the option of arranging for professional installation at an additional cost.

Top Five Best Ceiling Fan Buys

#5: Knightsbridge Collection, from Ellington Littex

Litex E-KM52ABZ5CMR Knightsbridge Collection 52-Inch Indoor/Outdoor Ceiling Fan with Remote Control,...

With elegant, classic style, and quiet running, the Knightsbridge collection is a stylish and well-designed ceiling fan. However, it is not easy to install, and so you would be advised to invest in the additional-cost service of professional installation.

The light fitting, as well as scratching easily, does cast the light in ‘wave’ patterns, which some people can find off-putting.

Pros:

  • Runs quietly
  • Stylish design

Cons:

  • Not easy to self-install
  • Light fitting creates patterns which some may find distracting
  • Easily scratched

Value For Money?

This is a big-ticket item, and, because of the difficulties involved in installing it yourself, you would most likely be paying extra for professional installation.

There are other, more affordable, ceiling fans that offer the same style and design quality.

#4: Minka-Aire F844-DK

Minka-Aire F844-DK Light Wave 52' Ceiling Fan, Distressed Koa with Remote Control

This ceiling fan is relatively easy to self-install, and comes in a stylish contemporary design. However, the motor does run rather loud, and the shade renders the light cast somewhat harsh.

Pros:

  • Stylish, contemporary design

Cons:

  • Motor noise
  • Harsh light

Value For Money?

An expensive purchase, there are other ceiling fans with a similar aesthetic at a more affordable price.

#3: Bala Brushed Chrome

Litex E-UB48BC4C1 Urbana 48-Inch Ceiling Fan with Four Brushed Chrome Blades and Single Light Kit...

A thoroughly contemporary ceiling fan, of high quality, with stylish design, offered at an affordable price, the Bala is a good purchase for any room or interior design style, as its striking, neutral design blends well with any theme.

However, the blades can create a fair amount of noise as they turn, and the bulb life isn’t the best. For the price, though, these may be minor considerations, depending on your personal preferences, and where you intend to use the ceiling fan.

Pros:

  • Simple, stylish design
  • Contemporary

Cons:

  • Blade noise
  • Poor bulb life

Value For Money?

While the poor bulb span does let the Bala fan down, it is a stylish yet affordable ceiling fan that can suit a range of themes.

#2: Westinghouse Comet

Westinghouse 7801665 Comet 52-Inch Matte Black Indoor Ceiling Fan, Light Kit with Frosted Glass

With a choice of four color options, there will be a Westinghouse Comet ceiling fan to suit your style.

The Comet has a quiet motor, and a lifetime motor warranty. It is, however, somewhat difficult to put together, with complex instructions. There is, of course, the additional-cost expert installation option, and, as the fan itself is moderately priced, this may be a worthwhile investment.

Pros:

  • Quiet
  • Lifetime motor warranty
  • Choice of colors

Cons:

  • Difficult to assemble and install

Value For Money?

While the fan itself is affordable, it is let down by the fact that professional installation is really a necessity – and an additional cost – given the difficulties of assembling and installing the fan.

#1: Hunter 53091

Hunter 53091 Builder Deluxe 5-Blade Single Light Ceiling Fan with Brazilian Cherry/Stained Oak...

With a choice of three color options, from classic to contemporary, the Hunter is a fan for all themes, times, and seasons, combining nineteenth-century craftsmanship with twenty-first century design.

It is also easy to install, meaning you don’t have to pay extra for professional installation unless you want to, and it comes complete with bulbs.

This fan is rather large, and may not be suited to low ceilings. The light is also relatively dim, which does let the fan down a little.

Pros:

  • Excellent craftsmanship and design
  • Range of colors
  • Easy to install
  • Bulbs included

Cons:

  • Not suited to low ceilings
  • Poor quality light

Value For Money?

If a ceiling fan is more important to you for its air-cooling ability than its illumination potential, then the Hunter could just be the fan for you. While it’s not necessarily cheap, it’s also not overpriced, and would suit someone looking for style and sophistication at a sensible price point.
