Ceiling fans that have earned the ENERGY STAR meet strict energy efficiency, quality, and performance criteria set by the US Environmental Protection Agency, tested by accredited labs, and certified by a third party. Saving energy helps you save money on utility bills and protect the climate by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
ENERGY STAR certified ceiling fan/light combination units:
- Are 40% more efficient than conventional fan/light units.
- Use improved motors and blade designs.
- Provide quality, cutting edge design, and the latest in efficient technology.
If your fan doesn't include lighting and you decide to add it later, be sure to purchase an ENERGY STAR certified light kit to get the advantages of ENERGY STAR lighting as well. Learn more about ENERGY STAR certified LED lighting.
