Top 7 Most Popular Ceiling Fan Manufacturers

Updated on April 17, 2013

Shopping for a Ceiling Fan? You're In Luck!

Just a few years ago you had a very limited selection of ceiling fans to choose from and just like those reality decorating shows said, they were ugly, hideous contraptions that did nothing at all for your décor, let alone your comfort. You might have had better results hanging an old box fan with a rope from your ceiling.

These days, that's all changed. Homeowners are realizing that there are two distinct benefits of installing a ceiling fan in every room: They improve air circulation, making your home much more comfortable, and they help lower your energy bill every month of the year.

And manufacturers have all stepped up their design and assembly processes to create unique, elegant designs to compliment any décor. Many manufacturers even offer customization options so you can put together your own unique creation.

But, with so many quality manufacturers to choose from and such a wide variety of beautiful designs, how do you know where to start? Well, right here, of course. Here are our Top 7 most popular ceiling fan manufacturer to help get you started on your search.

If you're looking for truly unique, elegant fan and lighting designs, then you'll want to take a stroll through Casablanca Ceiling Fan's innovative creations.

Each new design concept is initially sketched out on paper by talented artists, and it's then transferred to a 3-D design program for analysis. Structural engineers go over every line in the drawing, testing for structural integrity. Finally, only premium materials are chosen for the construction of each new design.

Casablanca is one of the few remaining manufacturers who actually builds their own motors and motor housings, too. And every fan is inspected for defects before it even leaves the production floor.

Prices start at $60 for standard configurations and range up to $600 for custom configurations.

      I had one of those cheapie fans in my family room. While it's true it had been there for over a decade, one day it just fell off (while running, of course.) Attempts to put it back up failed. As far as I can tell, the rounded part it hung from had worn down.

      It was replaced with a Hunter fan. We had four ceiling fans at the time, all of which were inexpensive and cheap. What an incredible difference there was between the fans we had and the Hunter fan. Ten years later, the Hunter fan is still going strong. And it's beautiful, too. I'll never buy one of the cheap fans again!
