DC ceiling fans grow more popular every season, and our suppliers are bringing out new versions all the time to make the most of this innovative technology. It’s no wonder the demand for these little beauties keeps growing. DC motors enable more speed options and remote controls tend to make it easier to access other features like reverse functionality. Ceiling fans with a DC motor also use less energy than their AC counterparts, which means that they are cheaper to run over a period of time.
