Direct current (DC) ceiling fans are big energy-savers using up to 40% less energy than AC fans and costing just about 1 cent an hour to run! * DC fans offer more speed options giving you greater flexibility to choose from gentle breezes to super high airflows. DC fans operate silently, so they’re perfect for quiet areas of your home like the bedroom. As the motor is compact and light, DC fans feature slim designs that blend well into your interiors. All DC fans can be controlled with a remote, so you don’t have to get up from your couch to change the speed, turn on the built-in light or activate the reverse function.
