Why Choose an AC ceiling fan?
AC fans are generally cheaper because the DC technology is so new.
AC fans can be used with either a wall control, pull cord or a remote whilst DC fans can only be controlled by a remote control, except in exceptional circumstances.
AC fans are still energy efficient and will use much less electricity than most household appliances, especially air conditioners but not as energy efficient as DC fans.
Why choose an DC ceiling fan?
DC ceiling fans run up to 75%-80% more efficient than AC
DC Fans produce less heat - if you have an AC ceiling fan on full and you turn it off and place your hand on top the motor gets extremely hot, which adds heat to the room you wish to cool down - contradiction?
DC fans are generally faster to respond to the remote control, have more speed options and have the reverse function on the remote

The cost to install a ceiling fan will depend on the ceiling structure and access. The average cost is between $160 to $260, not including the price of the fan itself, each fan can be different, and what we've found is the cheaper the fan the more assembling is required, presumable they save cost on manufacturing this way. It’s best to contact Westcork Electrical directly to install your ceiling fan. Most ceiling fans will require an isolation switch also - not installing this may void the warranty.
We recommend a DC (Direct Current) type of ceiling fan. DC Fans are extremely quiet, have a lower voltage, have more speed options, and run up to 75%-80% more efficiently than standard AC (Alternating Current) ceiling fans.
The common culprits of ceiling fans making noise are loose or damaged mounting, improper installation, loose fan screws, unlubricated motors, or loose accessories. If you ever hear a buzzing sound and see sparks coming from the fan motor you should cease using the fan immediately and call Westcork Electrical to address these issues.
