Though traditionally they’ve been eyesores, a ceiling fan is one of the most energy-efficient ways to keep your room cool. Luckily, things have changed: These 16 gorgeous modern ceiling fans manage to keep it cool and look cool, too. The best part? They’re reasonably priced, falling between $250 and $800.
Fresh Fact: All fans come with a small switch on the motor so you can change the direction the fan spins. In the summer, blades should rotate counter-clockwise to cool a room. In the winter, flip the switch to clockwise so the fan can push the warm air that has risen back down into the space.
Fresh Fact: A 42-inch or 36-inch fan is best for most rooms under 12 by 12. But a larger fan will cool a room faster and, in the case of a beautiful modern design, showcase the fan better. When in doubt about ideal fan size, check the CFM (cubic feet of air per minute) rating on the box.
Fresh Fact: Running modern ceiling fans takes less than a 100-watt light bulb of energy, saving you almost half of your cooling bill.
Open your window, then run the fan and let it do what it does best: circulate the air. Any of these modern ceiling fans will do the job perfectly — and stylishly! Which one of these fans do you want for your house? Let us know in the comments!
