Compare Ceiling Fans by Airflow

Want to know how much air your ceiling fan moves? We've published our Airflow Volume rating for every model to help you find the ceiling fans that move the most air. Airflow volume is calculate based on Cubic Meters per Hour (CMH) and can be useful to find a ceiling fan that will adequately cool larger spaces.

Airflow - Volume

Browse our models based on their airflow volume output to help find a ceiling fan that outputs sufficient airflow for your space.

Without experiencing a ceiling fan in person, it can be quite complicated to understand what type of performance and cooling you might expect. The standard published figure in Australia is Airflow Volume in Cubic Meters per Hour (CMH). While this figure is useful to show how much air a ceiling fan will move, it does not paint the entire picture.

 
For many people, the amount of wind directly below the fan is the critical deciding factor as that is how your ceiling fan will keep you cool. If this sounds like you, you may wish to Compare Ceiling Fans by Breeze instead as it may better guide your decision making.

All models have been assigned a rating based on their airflow output. Ceiling fans that move very high volumes of air are good choices for larger spaces that require distributed airflow, and also complement air conditioned spaces by better circulating the cooler air to reduce the strain on your system (and subsequently lower running costs).

 
It’s important to note that high airflow volume does not necessarily mean high wind chill (cooling). There are many factors that influence ceiling fan performance – for further guidance, please refer to our Ceiling Fan Performance Guide.
