48″ / 56″ Trinity DC ceiling fan

The Trinity DC ceiling fan is our best overall airflow choice as it provides powerful airflow while consuming very little power. The aerodynamic aerofoil blades utilise a variable blade pitch which effectively sweep large volumes of air. Crafted from polymer, the blades offer powerful and quiet airflow while being easy to maintain and long-lasting. Bundled with a remote control (normally valued at $99) the Trinity DC ceiling fan includes many advanced functions as standard. All these features and more make the Trinity DC ceiling fan the overall winner in airflow, efficiency and noise levels.

What’s to love:

  • Powerful airflow
  • Extremely energy efficient
  • Aerodynamic aerofoil blades move large volumes of air
  • Polymer blades offer quiet airflow
  • Polymer blades are easy to maintain and long-lasting
  • Multiple finishes available
  • Available in 48″ and 56″ blade spans
  • 20W CCT LED Light Kit available
  • Low running costs

  • Fan Off Timer built in to remote control
  • Fan reversing function available

Some things to keep in mind:

  • DC fans are more expensive up front, with lower long-term running costs
  • DC fans can only be controlled with remote controls
 

The Trinity DC ceiling fan utilises the latest in DC motor technology to provide powerful airflow while being extremely energy efficient.

Excellent fan, big air mover. Bought three of these fans in DC version from our local lighting store in Murwillumbah. These fans are quiet and provide big airflow . The remote is cool with 8 speeds,( we only ever use low speed or maybe medium) forwards and reverse and also has a couple of timer settings. DC means cheap to run. Bit disappointed with being able to see the blade screws from below , the cover should be bigger, but this is not a big issue. Aaron and Daniella recommended the fan, so if it is good enough for them it is good enough for me.

FANtastic! I bought 4 of these in black to replace the older ceiling fans I had. The Trinity DC fans are well built, clean and cool in their design, quiet and smooth in their aciton. They simply work well! The electrician who installed them commented on how well engineered they are. The remote is really cool, and the sea breeze mode is funky. Great product at a great price. Thanks

This is a great fan, purchased two 48” for a 60m2 loft room. They’re so quiet but very powerful and plenty of options with 8 settings, reverse and breeze cycles. Also great service from 360 as one had motor issues after installation. Called in the morning and they came out with a new one and fixed it that same day. Couldn’t ask for better service. Very happy, thank you!

56″ Trinity DC ceiling fan in Black. We got this fan for a new office upstairs in our house, the room faces west and gets a bit warm in the afternoon. The 56″ Trinity fan cools the area off beautifully with it’s 8 settings, timer function and a sea breeze setting to add to an already great fan. Thoroughly recommended and the service is great to boot.

Pretty amazing. The only small issue we had was that the ceiling cap does not seem to be quite large enough to house all the circuitry, so the electrician could not get them all flush right up against the ceiling. He actually had to extend some wires to get them as close as he did, but it has still left us with a gap between the ceiling and where the cap begins. Aside from that, the performance of these is amazing. Never would have believed that completely silent fans existed until i heard these. Also, the amount of air they push is beyond belief. We’ve never needed to go past 1. The timer function is also extremely useful.

Trinity fan with light. We bought the 56” trinity fan with light for our bedroom. Our bedroom has a westerly facing window and so the room is hot. After installing the fan it’s made a huge difference. The fan actually feels like an air conditioner is on. The fan is so quiet and has 8 speeds. It’s fantastic and we highly recommend it. We are actually buying the fan now for other areas of the house.

52″ Arumi AC ceiling fan

The Arumi ceiling fan is our best bedroom airflow choice as it is available in a 52″ blade span (suitable for most bedrooms), uses polymer blades for quiet airflow and the aerodynamic design of the blades provide excellent airflow. The lack of size options and finishes means the Arumi won’t be the right fit for all spaces. But in terms of sheer airflow output, it tops our list for the standard bedroom-sized fans. For more options and recommendations, consider our Top 5 Best Bedroom Ceiling Fans.

Arumi Ceiling Fan Pewter Koa LED Light

What’s to love:

  • Very powerful airflow
  • Aerodynamic airfoil blade design
  • Timber aesthetic blades crafted from polymer
  • Polymer blades offer quiet airflow
  • Polymer blades are easy to maintain and long-lasting
  • Reliable AC motor technology
  • Remote control available
  • Summer/Winter modes

Some things to keep in mind:

  • Only available in one finish/design
  • Recommended for indoor use only
 

The 52″ Arumi ceiling fan blends a modern design with aerodynamic performance to create a robust cooling solution for your contemporary decor. Combining a stylish and compact motor with three all-weather polymer blades, the Arumi includes a wall control as standard and is LED light kit adaptable. The sweeping and elegant high-quality ABS blade design adds a refined form to the function of the Arumi fan. The variable blade pitch from blade tip to motor provides highly efficient and quiet airflow.

52″ Aspire AC ceiling fan

The 52″ Aspire ceiling fan is our best-selling ceiling fan. The Aspire ceiling fan’s clean aesthetic makes for an unassuming cooling solution rather than a bold statement, while its silicone steel AC motor ensures smooth, quiet operation for sound-sensitive areas like bedrooms. The Aspires polymer (ABS) blades are aerodynamically curved to reduce noise caused by air turbulence when spinning and to help maximise airflow.  When you require your fan to also be a light source for your bedroom, the Aspire fan has an energy efficient 18W LED light kit option that can be added. Compatible with the Mi-smart remote control system for light dimming and timer functions for added convenience.

52″ Aspire in White. Oh so quiet. Recently purchased 3 of these fans to replace older timber ones. The silence is deafening. More air flow due to extra length which was very welcome on very hot nights. Happily recommend this product.

48″ Velocity in Brushed Chrome. Really great fans. These fans, made in Taiwan, with metal blades, are just fantastic. High quality bearings in them, so they’re super quiet. The lighting kit was really easy to add in also. You do get what you pay for – these fans will last and they’re worth every cent. Also, thank you for the ripping customer service – highly recommend this business.
