We often have to brace ourselves to fork out more cash to guarantee quality, but the KDK M48SG ceiling fan offers KDK’s famous quality that’s built to last. While it’s the only fan using older AC motor tech on this list, you can expect a silent, strong companion for the long haul with its permanently lubricated mechanism that ensures fuss-free operation even after years of use.

At a price of just $100, it’s no surprise that you won’t be getting fancy bells and whistles like timers, app compatibility and remote controls – its 5 speeds are accessed via a wall-mounted switch.

Pro tip: Older AC fans are often more affordable, but DC fans can give energy savings in the long run – plus they work better with remote controls and often are sleeker.

Price: $100
Installation: From $50
Blade lengths available: 48”

Simpler old-school AC motors used to be the norm, but newer DC fans take the additional step of transforming AC mains power to DC, decreasing energy consumption by around 70%. This newer tech can be much more expensive, but the Fanco F Star is the cheapest way to get in on these juicy energy savings.

Being a DC fan, the Fanco F Star also responds quickly to remote control commands, making it easy to toggle between the 5 fan speeds and reverse mode. It also has a quieter motor for a peaceful night’s sleep. With blades made from impact-resistant ABS plastic, the fans are available in Matte Black, White and Wood finishes.

Price: $199
Installation: From $50

Ceiling fans are safe, but accidents do happen. While most ceiling fans have safety features, Panasonic F-48MS2 takes a step ahead of the competition with 3 levels of safety.

The fan chassis is double-secured to the ceiling with a safety wire, preventing the unit from crashing downwards. Each individual fan blade is also fastened with safety hooks to the fan itself, while a safety cut-off switch automatically cuts the power when there is excessive wobble.

While these exacting measures are sure to satisfy the most kiasi amongst us, the Panasonic FM15GW still ticks the requisite boxes as a full-fledged ceiling fan with 5 fan speeds and a silent operation.

Price: $95
Installation: From $50
Blade lengths available: 48″ and 60”
