Not all people appreciate the worth and beauty of using ceiling fans. For one, they’re not as cool as air conditioning systems but they are far more efficient with air distribution. Besides, they might not make your room cold in a matter of a few minutes but using them instead of ACs also make you pay lower electrical bills since they use much lower energy. But instead of using just a single ceiling fan, why don’t you try gyro ceiling fans for more efficiency?

What You Need To Know about Gyro Ceiling Fans

These are not the traditional ceiling fans and unlike single ceiling fans, these fans are far more efficient because of their striking uniqueness in appearance and performance. They’re also very untraditional looking compared to the standard ceiling fans because of their dual fan heads.

It’s because instead of one, this kind of fans uses two heads which rotates on an axis. They’re better than single-headed ceiling fans because their independent fan heads have their own rotation speeds and are more capable at cooling even the hottest of environments. This is because gyro fans are designed to provide air circulation on large spaces with the fan heads configured at a certain direction.

If you’re worried about the odd design of gyro fans, then you don’t really have anything to worry about except the dual head fans. Minka Aire is one of the main manufacturers of gyro fans that are also suitable for modern décors.

  • Better and Maximum Airflow

Gyro fans are better at providing maximum airflow and are best known for being rated as one of the best ceiling fans to use outdoors or on wet conditions. This is because gyro fans are often damp and UL listed so you can be sure of them weathering the natural elements with grace, so you can install a gyro fan on your garage, gazebo, deck, patio, or sunroom or any other big space that requires better air control and circulation.

  • Better Fan Motors

Just like with the fan head, dual ceiling fans also utilize two motors to provide more power and better efficiency at air circulation. This is the major reason why a gyro fan can be used indoors or outdoors especially with the latter; depending on your requirement. More so, a dual head ceiling fan can easily take the place of a standard or single-head one.

  • Energy Efficiency

Perhaps one of the most obvious and the very reason why there are a lot of people who still take to using ceiling fans is because of their energy efficiency. Usually, ceiling fans only have to run on an average of 60 watts which amounts to about a cent per hour when calculated. Therefore, even if you use a gyro ceiling fan which uses two motors to accommodate more power, it still won’t burn a hole in your pocket when you pay for the electric bill.

  • Strong Design Element

Just like the standard ceiling fan, gyro fans come in a wide variety of styles, design, and finishes. It can also range from the classic Victorian look to the more modern and contemporary style that fits most homes today because of their sleek and minimalist design.

What makes a gyro fan another good choice is that it comes with decorative motor houses, downrods, and even creatively made blades depending on your artistic preference like the more popular flat polished blades made of wood or metal, palm leaf blade design, or go with hand-carved wood blades, or woven bamboo.

  • Lighting
