The Benefits of Low Energy
Fantasia has always been an energy conscious company. Ceiling Fans are very efficient in terms of energy consumption compared to, say, air conditioning. A typical ceiling fan will use between 60-100w on high speed and the light fitting will use 60-180w depending on the type. This means that a traditional ceiling fan may consume up to 280w on high speed with the light on full. Not a huge amount of power by any means but at Fantasia we always want to go further.
In early 2012 Fantasia released a new range of Elite ceiling fans with DC motors inside. These highly efficient consume just 3-30w depending on the speed. They also have extra features such as 6 speeds rather than the traditional 3 and also a ‘pulse’ function allowing for a natural breeze effect.
This was a big step forward but at Fantasia we are always looking to use add the latest technology to our products. LED lighting has made large steps forward over the last 12 months and now we are able to add them to the Fantasia range.
These new LED light bulbs cost a little bit more than a standard light bulb but the savings in energy is significant. A standard G9 Light bulbs would consume 40-60w. These new Fantasia G9 bulbs consume 3.8w each and have a light output the equivalent of 50w. This means that a combination of a ceiling fans with a DC motor and LED light kit could reduce the overall energy consumption from 280w to 37.6w a saving of over 87%!
If you are considering a ceiling fan purchase then you should look at our low energy range – Here’s the link –
At Fantasia we’re always looking to reduce the cost of running a ceiling fans. With this is mind we launched a range of ceiling fans that use DC motors rather than the traditional AC. This allows for greater flexibility in operation (6 speeds as opposed to the traditional 3, aswell as a pulse function) along with the energy saving. Have a look at the graph for details on the energy savings. Also this year we are launching a range of LED light bulbs. This will bring even bigger savings, An AC ceiling fan with 2 x 50w G9 light bulbs would currently consume a total of 195w on high speed, this would be reduced to just 39w for a #ceilingfan with a DC motor and LED light bulbs included.

Does the Fantasia Low Energy range of ceiling fans have any other benefits apart from saving power?
The Fantasia range of low energy ceiling fans (Alpha, Delta, Omega) have a number of benefits. As mentioned, these ceiling fans use less power than traditional fans. This is because they have DC (rather than AC) motors which use approximately 60% less power. However, installing a DC motor in a ceiling fan brings added benefit in terms of control. A standard Fantasia ceiling fan has 3 forward and 3 reverse speeds, the low energy range of ceiling fans operates with 6 speeds in forward and 6 in reverse. This means much more control over the level of breeze you require. Also the reverse function of the fan is on the remote control handset rather than on the ceiling fan motor itself.
Natural Breeze – Added to the speed features is a new function called ‘natural breeze’. This setting on the remote control make the fan pulse, speeding up & then slowing down to create a natural breeze effect.
As you can see, the low energy range of ceiling fans from Fantasia does a lot more than conserve power.

Everything about Ceiling Fans is usually round. They spin round in a circle and so it follows that the design should be circular….doesn’t it? Well no actually is doesn’t. Fantasia are always looking push the boundaries of design and this has never been more obvious than with the release of the Quadrant Ceiling Fan.
Every thing about this fan is square, including the drop rod if you look closely. The fan even uses magnets to make sure it remains perfectly square when at rest. The fan motor housing is made from Aluminium for that modern look. As if these features aren’t exceptional enough, the quadrant also offers a dimmable flourescent light, so its low energy too.
The Fantasia Quadrant will be available from June this year. For more information and where to buy have a look at the Fantasia Website
