Ceiling fans can help circulate air within a room, creating a gentle breeze that might make you feel cooler in this intense summer heat. This versatile cooling device can also be used outdoors on patios, decks and porches with overhangs. Instead of cranking up the AC (and your electric bill), why not buy a new energy-saving ceiling fan instead?
The shopping experts at CBS Essentials have compiled a list of the best ceiling fans for your home in 2023. These powerful fans can help lower the temperature in your home, reduce your electric costs and generate soothing white noise to help you sleep.
When it comes to buying a new ceiling fan, consider this: Do you only want a fan, or a fan attached to a light? What style is your room? Does the fan you've picked fit in? How do you want to control your fan -- with a remote or through a switch on the wall? And one more question: How will you tackle installation? (Unless you're handy with wires, you'll likely want to hire someone to install your new fan.)
Below are the best ceiling fans for your home from Lamps Plus, Wayfair, All Modern and more. We found customer-loved ceiling fan options for both indoor and outdoor spaces.
