Cool customer

All ceiling fans are essentially the same, right? Wrong. A good fan will not only deliver superior cooling, but will also be a design asset, boast whisper-quiet operation – no unnerving rattle! – and could even save on energy costs. Here’s what to look out for before making your fan purchase.

Smooth operator

Your new fan should be pretty enough for you to happily gaze at every day. The sleek design of the HPM Inspire fan fits the bill, with a simple, contemporary look that will sit comfortably in any home. Choose an Inspire fan in white to blend in, or go for a contrasting finish like black or brushed silver for eye-catching good looks.

Quiet time

If you’re a light sleeper or need a quiet space, a noisy fan will be your worst nightmare. Look for an ultra-quiet model, like the HPM Inspire, which features a perfectly balanced system and corrosion-resistant timber blades for near-silent operation.

Energy wise

As an appliance likely to be in frequent use, you want a fan that delivers the coolness you crave without burning through electricity. HPM Inspire fans feature a powerful 50W motor that delivers higher airflow (max 9830m3/h), while consuming less energy than other fans. Plus, Inspire fans feature summer and winter mode; switch it to winter mode in the cooler months and it will circulate warm air, boosting the efficiency of your heating appliances to help reduce your energy bill.

Light bulb moment

The role of a ceiling fan is fairly straightforward – spin fast, keep the room cool – but a fan with a light can be a savvy purchase for certain spaces. An integrated light avoids the strobe-light effect of blades sweeping under downlights and is ideally suited to smaller rooms where you don’t want the visual clutter of separate light fittings. The Inspire sweep fan has the option of an integrated LED light for a cleaner, more minimalist look.
