When it comes to energy efficiency it's hard to beat a ceiling fan. Cheap and relatively easy to install, this eco-friendly cooling option costs as little as $5 a year to run if you choose a model using a DC motor. We test 16 fans, priced from $65 to $425, to tell you:

  • what to buy
  • which models perform best
  • which are easiest to use
  • which make the least noise.
