Benefits Of A DC Motor
Ceiling fans with DC motors offer greater energy efficiency, increased quietness and come standard with a remote control that includes the option to reverse the fan from the remote. These fans are perfect for bedrooms where quietness is essential, for the energy conscious, and for high ceilings where it may be inconvenient to switch the fan into reverse from the motor. Style wise - ceiling fans with DC motors tend to be more compact and lighter, many featuring a slim motor design.
