Show some love and appreciation for the slow, steady and classic breeze that an energy-efficient ceiling fan brings to homes and offices throughout the world by celebrating National Ceiling Fan Day!

History of National Ceiling Fan Day

Originally operated manually by a cord, the first ceiling fans date back to around 500 BC and were made from large leaves mounted to the ceiling that would be moved back and forth to provide a gentle flow of air. Water powered rotary ceiling fans were developed in the 1860s and by 1882 the first electric powered ceiling fan was engineered. Commercial success of these fans meant that by the 1920s, ceiling fans were commonplace in the US and even made some international gains.

The advent of air conditioning subverted the influence of the ceiling fan and it took a back seat by the 1960s. However, with recognition of the need for energy conservation, the ceiling fan has begun to come back into popularity. And National Ceiling Fan Day is here to celebrate that fact!

Since its start in 2013, National Ceiling Fan Day has been observed by those in the production and sales of the ceiling fan industry, as well as those consumers who simply appreciate the benefits that ceiling fans bring to their lives.
