Types of Ceiling Fans
Generally, there are two main types of ceiling fans – an AC (alternating current) or DC (direct current). AC refers to electrical current with reverses direction, and DC refers to the current that flows in one direction.
Some households choose AC ceiling fans as they are cheaper, but I would recommend getting DC ceiling fans because they are more efficient. DC fans are faster, more compact and lighter, and most importantly use less energy (up to 70% lesser). It also has more speed options and is generally quieter. The market standard as of now is DC fans. You can get a DC fan for around $200 – $300.

2. For big spaces: Crestar Airis 56” 5 Blade Ceiling Fan with LED Light
Crestar is also another popular brand for ceiling fans in Singapore. It boasts maximum comfort and air ventilation, especially with its 5-blade fans like the Airis Series. What I like most about the Crestar Airis 56” features the Crestar energy inverter DC motor to save energy (it uses only 6 to 35W of energy).

The fan models that caught our eye was the Acorn Futuriste AC-308 50” ceiling fan (also comes in white) and the Acorn Intaglio DC-159 that looks very much like the Spin Quincy but at a fraction of the price.
The Acorn Fantastique AC-326 and Acorn Veloce DC-160 is also another great choice for contemporary homes with its matt black finish. I think by now you would have guessed I’m a sucker for stylish ceiling fans. Read what Our Little Smarties have to say about their Acorn fan.

8 Steps to Buy a Ceiling Fan for your Home
1. What is your Budget?
Whether it’s buying a ceiling fan or a digital lock, I always start with budgeting. It will help narrow down your options. The average cost of a ceiling fan is about $200 to $300, though you will find there are budget models like the Panasonic Ceiling Fan 60” and luxury models like the Spin Quincy.
How many rooms are you planning to install ceiling fans in?
If you are planning on getting a ceiling fan for only your living room, you can budget more for a better model, but if you are planning to install a ceiling fan in every room, that might add up to quite a bit. If so, opt for a model with an LED light so it is a 2-in-1 appliance. Lights on average cost about $100, so you will be saving that amount if you get a ceiling fan with LED light.
I only installed a ceiling fan in my balcony and placed standing fans in the rooms. On hindsight. I would have installed a ceiling fan in my living room as well. A ceiling fan can help to air your space very well, something that a standing fan would not do as well at.
2. Are you installing it Indoor or Outdoor?
Most ceiling fans in Singapore are suited for indoor use, but you can go for dry-rated ceiling fans. If you are installing it on a false ceiling, make sure to get a model that is lightweight. A ceiling fan made of ABS (acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene) would be suitable as it is a hard plastic that is lightweight and durable.
If you are installing your ceiling fan outdoors, get a damp-rated or wet-rated model that can withstand humidity and rain. A wood ceiling fan might not be recommended for balcony use unless it is pre-treated to be water-resistant.
3. What size of a ceiling fan to get?
Similar to air-conditioners, bigger is not always better. In this case, you will want to get a fan that is suitable for the size of your room.
|Size of fan||Size of room (sq ft)||Type of room|
|36”||<75 sq ft||Small balcony/room|
|46”||144 sq ft||Bedroom or dining room|
|52”||225sq ft||Living room|
|60”||>250 sq ft||Big living room|
You will usually install the fan in the centre of your room, close to where people gather. If the room is huge, either get a bigger fan, or two fans to cover the area.
Do consider your ceiling height. If you have a low ceiling, do not get a low hanging model as it might hit someone. Place your ceiling fan at least 2.1 meters above the floor. Typical HDBs/condos have a ceiling height of 2.6 to 2.8 meters, depending on whether a false ceiling is installed.
If you have a very low ceiling, you have a few options:
- Get a hugger design like the Eco-Airx DC Motor Ceiling Fan 46” or 56”. A hugger fan is ideal for low ceilings that are 8 feet or shorter. As there is no space between the ceiling fan’s motor housing and the ceiling, it is an ideal choice for small apartments.
- Consider a bladeless fan like the Exhale Fan or the Osman Portable Bladeless Fan
- Get a ceiling fan that you can install in the corner, like the Elmark Aircraft A8 18-inch Ceiling Wall Fan.
- Get a wall fan. Most designs might not look very stylish, but if you are going for a retro vintage home interior design, this Toyomi 16 Classic Wall Fan might just work for you.
Some units on the top floor have higher ceilings, so you may want to find models with a drop rod that allows you to lower the fan to effectively cool your guests.
4. Number of blades
Ceiling fans of today are now more varied. From 3-blade to 5-blade fans, you will also find fans with titled or angled blades, claiming to increase airflow efficiency. You can even find ceiling fans with retractable blades like the Xiaomi Opple!
Fan blade size and the number of fan blades do matter, but only slightly. In theory, the bigger (wider or longer) the blade is, the more airflow it can generate. More blades would also do the same. However, with bigger/more blades, there is more “drag” of air. This increases air resistance and requires more energy to power it (and hence a more powerful motor). But nowadays the modern ceiling fans with 3-blades are able to perform as well as 5-blades, so you do not have to worry too much about this.
That said if you are a fan of more blades check out this Fanco Heli 56” Ceiling Fan with 6 blades.
5. Check Warranty & Installation
Do buy your ceiling fan from a reputable brand and from authorised sellers. Before you purchase, check the installation costs (some include free installation) and the warranty period.
A ceiling fan on average lasts a decade. If your fan requires repair, do try to source for original parts, or use only high-quality replacements to keep your fan running for a longer period.
Decide if you want your fan to have a light fixture. While you might not need this for your living room if you have downlights installed, it is great for your balcony as you only need one electrical point for both. Also, if you are planning to install a ceiling fan in your rooms, it might help you save the cost and space.
Opt for ceiling fans with energy-saving features such as a timer, sleep mode, energy-efficient motors (DC motor)
8. Colour & Design
Lastly, you want a ceiling fan that complements your home interior design. Most models come in black and white, though you can find different designs and colours to complement your home interior design.
- Scandinavian: Eco-Airx Ceiling Fan
- Modern: Acorn Intaglio DC-159
- Industrial: PO ECO Gale 56”
- Contemporary: Spin Quincy
- Rustic: Qukau Solid Wood Ceiling Fan
- European style: Fanco 52” E-Series (comes in Black, Silver & White)
- Eclectic: Qukau 42” (comes in 4 colours)
- Retro: Qukau Ceiling Fan
- Invisible look: Qukau Invisible Fan Light 42″
Ceiling Fan FAQ
How does a ceiling fan work?
The ceiling fan cools you by increasing air movement or airflow in the room. Contrasting to air conditioners, they do not lower air temperature or air humidity. With the increased air movement, our body sweat will evaporate faster taking away our body heat, and in turn, cooling us.
How do I install a ceiling fan?
Always get a professional electrician to help you with the installation. Some shops include installation with your purchase, but otherwise, you should source for a reliable electrician to help you install it. Before installation, make sure to turn off any live power.
What are the popular ceiling fan brands in Singapore?
When buying ceiling fans in Singapore, KDK, Franco, Crestar, Acorn, and Amasco are frequent mentions.
- KDK is a brand from Japan that is known for its simple-looking and affordable fans.
- Qukau is from China and their brand has a lot of designs and colours to choose from
Where to buy ceiling fans in Singapore?
You used to only be able to buy ceiling fans from stores, but now you can purchase them online for the ultimate convenience and even enjoy discounted prices! Shopee and Lazada are my go-to for shopping. It is also a great place to compare prices.
How to finance your purchases?
Depending on the brands you purchase, the average cost of renovating your home is $50,000 – $60,000. Furniture and appliances like lights will probably set you back an extra $10,000 – $15,000. If you need to take up a loan to finance your purchase, renovation loans often do not give you the cash upfront, hence you may not be able to use it for lights shopping, depending on whether your interior designer includes it in their quotation. If so, you might wish to consider a personal loan instead. Do note that personal loans have slightly higher interest rates than renovation loans, but you get the cash flexibility. Our friends at Singsaver have compiled the best personal loans for you to check out.
When shopping for your home, do keep in mind to prioritize and focus on the essentials first. Leave the ‘nice-to-haves’ for later, for it’s best to not spend beyond your means. When buying your lights from lighting shops in Singapore, we also suggest using credit cards that give you rebates, so you get extra savings. Every little bit of savings can go a long way!
