  • More than just functional, today’s ceiling fans are a must-have design accessory, adding a sense of relaxed luxury to any room. No matter what style your interior, there’s a ceiling fan design to suit.


    So which one is right for you?

    Firstly, it’s important to choose the right fan for your room size.

    If your room measures 4x5m or 20sqm, you need 122 cm blades. If your room measures 6x6m or 20sqm-36sqm, you’ll need blades of 132cm and above.

    Next, consider where the fan will be installed.

    For kitchen or living areas: A metal blade fan such as our Typhoon circulates more air than a timber-bladed fan, which is perfect for common areas such as the lounge or kitchen.


    For bedrooms or studies: A timber blade fan is quieter than its metal counterparts. Our Airfusion Type A blends brushed chrome and teak blades.

    For coastal areas: Choose an outdoor fan that won’t warp such as our new Airfusion Marine in stainless steel.


    For alfresco areas: Keep cool while you’re entertaining outdoors with our Airfusion range, specially designed for outdoor undercover areas.


    And remember, if your fan is going to replace the room’s main light source, choose a fan with an integrated light such as our Altitude ECO with an energy saving LED light.

  • Experience the most exciting shift in lighting technology


    Most houses these days are open plan, which means multi-functional rooms also need multi-functional lighting.

    With our revolutionary colour-shifting technology, you can switch between warm white light, which creates a cozy relaxed atmosphere, and cool white light, which is perfect when you need brighter light for tasks such as cooking, and studying.

    Having the option to switch between levels and temperatures of light lets you control the mood and feel of a room at any given time.

    Imagine you’re in the kitchen cooking for a dinner party you have planned in the evening, while the kids are busy tackling their homework in the adjoining dining room. In this environment, lights set to a cool white (5000K) colour temperature are ideal to keep concentration levels high. When your guests arrive, you can switch the lights to a slightly cooler white (4000K), which is perfect for social interaction over pre-dinner drinks and nibbles. Serve dinner and dim the lights to warm white (3000K) to create a relaxed, comfortable ambience.

    Time to end the evening? Switch the lights to the mood you want.

    Check out the amazing colour-shifting technology on selected flush mounts, LED downlights and our Fanaway Evo 1 LED.

  • How to get the most from your ceiling fan


    If you’re energy savvy, and have a fan that has reversible mode you’ve probably been using your ceiling fan all through winter to save on heating costs. Great idea, but now that summer’s in full swing, it’s important to maintain that energy efficiency by making sure your ceiling fan is running in the right direction.

    So which way is which? To check that you’re using your ceiling fan correctly, turn it on to low speed and look up at the blades. If they’re moving counter-clockwise, your fan is still set in winter mode. This circulates warm air rising towards the ceiling back down and around the room.

    For summer use, make sure you’re NOT on reverse mode and check to see that the blades are now moving clockwise when you’re looking up at them. Running the ceiling fan on high speed in this mode creates a downward column of air that makes you feel degrees cooler. And the gentle breeze gives your room a relaxed, resort-like feel – perfect for a long, hot summer.

    And while you’re getting your ceiling fans summer ready, don’t forget to dust the blades!

  • Ceiling Fans - How this energy efficient solution helps you

    Artemis Ceiling Fan

    With power costs going through the roof, it’s no wonder some of us are limiting the use of energy-hungry air conditioners, choosing instead to sweat it out during those long hot days and steamy nights. That’s why ceiling fans are fast becoming the must-have accessory for every home – if not every room.

    Just check out these amazing fan facts. The breeze from a ceiling fan can make you feel degrees cooler*, while using the same amount of power as a 60 watt light globe. That equates to a running cost of less than 3c an hour*. Compare that to your average air conditioner, which uses 15 - 60 times* the amount of electricity, and you can see why a ceiling fan is such a great energy-efficient option.

    Even better, on those really hot days when you need air conditioning, you can reduce its running cost by up 40%* if you use it in conjunction with a ceiling fan.

    Beacon Lighting has Australia’s biggest range of ceiling fans, and here’s 6 of our favourites.

  • Ceiling fans – an energy efficient solution

    Ceiling fans - an energy efficient solution

    Altitude Eco Outdoor Fan

    With summer just around the corner, staying cool during weeks of hot days and sticky nights can be shockingly expensive. The answer is an energy efficient ceiling fan – today’s must-have accessory for energy efficient homes.

    Consider the facts and figures; most ceiling fans only use the same amount of power as a 60 watt light bulb, which costs around 3¢ to run^. Your air conditioner however, uses around 2000+ watts to run, which can cost around $1.00* to run per/hour – and that’s just on an average day.

    But by using a ceiling fan together with your air conditioner, you can reduce your air conditioning bill by up to 40%^. Or use the ceiling fan by itself and cut your cooling costs by up to a whopping 90%!

    Not only are ceiling fans one of the most effective ways to save money and keep cool, they’re also a stylish addition to any room. Today’s new look ceiling fans are available in a variety of designs and colours, with or without lights. There’s a style and size to suit every room – even undercover outdoor entertaining areas. To find out how to choose the perfect fan click here.
