Fanimation DC Motor Fans

Since 1984 Fanimation has been known for producing innovative, unique ceiling fans and is an acknowledged leader in the industry. The new 2011 Fanimation ceiling fans will continue to impress consumers with their one-of-a-kind designs and energy efficient DC motors.

DC motors consume less than 70% of the power a standard motor uses while generating more power and torque by using a stationary magnetic field. Most standard ceiling fans require constant power to keep the fan spinning, a DC motor only needs to get the fan up to speed then a built in magnetic drive keeps the fan circulating using little energy. Ceiling fans with a DC motor also have six speeds instead of the normal three speeds and are virtually silent.

The Fanimation Landan ceiling fan is one of the most energy efficient fans on the market today using only 54 watts of electricity to operate the light and fan on high. Not only does it feature the DC motor but also utilizes energy saving, long lasting LED lighting.  This Energy Star ceiling fan includes general LED downlight illumination as well as LED uplighting that will create a warm ambiance to any room. The Landan ceiling fan has a decorative fluted motor housing with reversible blades and is available in a bronze accent or satin nickel finish.

The Fanimation Keistone ceiling fan features a transitional design with a decorative halogen light fixture that is offered in an amber or white linen glass. The Keistone fan is available in a bronze accent or pewter finish with reversible blades and a 60” or 72” blade span.

Fanimation just recently redesigned some of their more popular models in 2011 to include the powerful and energy saving DC motor. The tropical Islander, Sandella, and contemporary Lourve ceiling fan models were redesigned in 2011 to include the DC motor. These ceiling fans are available in a wide range of finishes, blade sets, and lighting options to match any décor.

So, if you’re looking for a stylish yet energy efficient ceiling fan that will be the center of attention in a room, then look no further than a Fanimation DC motor ceiling fan. You are certain to find just the right Fanimation ceiling fan for any residential or commercial space from their large selection of unique and energy saving ceiling fans.

    Why is LED lighting not used more in your ceiling fans?

    1. Teal Anderson

      Hi Lawrence,

      Thank you for reading our blog and inquiring about the use of LED lighting in our fans. LED lighting is a new technology that we currently use in our Landan and plan to incorporate more in the future. We are constantly thinking about and developing new fan designs and always appreciate our customer’s feedback!

    Does your DC motored ceiling fan have to be wired differently or use an accesory to be wired into a standard home?

    1. Teal Anderson Cracraft

      Our DC fans will install the same way as a standard AC fan. They are installed using two wires: A white wire (Neutral) and the black wire (Hot). No extra accessories are needed in order to install a DC fan.

    I have the landon. It will not rotate in the forward direction. If you press any of the spin positions on the remote it just pulses backwards slowly. The lights work ok. Any suggestions?
