This fan uses as little power with 4w on the lowest setting than it would take for an AC to use 60watts - that's how efficient this fan is.

The new Ventair Skyfan is the ultimate in home ceiling fan. With 6 models to choose from, including with or without lights and 3 different size options 48", 52" or 60".

The innovative technology behind this great product will make your house feel like it's on a perpetual breeze! With the Skyfan, you can enjoy cool breezes and reduced energy costs without sacrificing style.

The Skyfan is a sleek and stylish fan that suits all personal styles. With 3 different colour options, including white or black and the option for timber. And don't worry about installation, this product comes almost assembled right out of the box so all you need are some basic tools.

This fan includes the remote, however, you have the option to make this a smart fan very easily by purchasing the SKYAPPCM Bluetooth USB Kit which simply plugs in the base and can be done DIY.

Alternately, you can purchase the SKYWCM Smart Wall Plate which looks really sleek. I have begged companies to do this for years as DC typically only comes with remotes which can get lost and look like an eye saw on the wall.

The fan is also a performance leader with whisper quiet sound and extreme high airflow. This ceiling fan literally has it all, great modern looks and a performance that matches. The Skyfan ticks all the boxes and is really well priced compared to its competitors.
