This wiki has been updated 8 times since it was first published in December of 2018. Forget having to reach up and guess what pull string does what: these are not your mother’s ceiling fans. The options here let you skip the energy-hungry air conditioner and summon a breeze from the comfort of your bed or across the room. Use the included remote controls to command these models to power on, adjust speed and, in some cases, even reverse the direction of the blades' rotation. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. If you'd like to contribute your own research to the Wiki, please get started by reviewing this introductory video.

Editor's Notes

December 20, 2018:

Above all else, when creating this list we examined how much air a ceiling fan could move, how quietly it operated, and the quality of its parts. From there, we considered the individual design of the fans and made sure to chose a diverse set of styles that could compliment different types of rooms.
