According to Wikipedia: “A ceiling fan is a mechanical fan, usually electrically powered, suspended from the ceiling of a room, that uses hub-mounted rotating paddles to circulate air. Casablanca Fan Co. ceiling fan from the early 1980s. A ceiling fan rotates much more slowly than an electric desk fan; it cools people effectively by introducing slow movement into the otherwise still, hot air of a room, inducing evaporative cooling. Fans never actually cool air, unlike air-conditioning equipment, but use significantly less power.”

From a technical point of view, the fewer the blades, the more efficient the fan is because the other blades will cause turbulence when spinning. Having said that, a 1 blade fan doesn’t look that great, not even a ‘futuristic alien’ like fan. Please don’t buy those ceiling fans with lights, remote controls, direction feature and whatnot. That’s like wearing a shirt full of pockets and a pen holder on the sleeves – Ugly.

    I’m living in Canada (Quebec), and yes we have ceiling fans! In fact, there’s a lots of ceiling fan everywhere in Canada… Even thought our country is really cold, we have really humid summers and having something to cool off is “necessary*. I’m sure it’s not as bad as malaysia, but here we just have so much stuff to deal with heat… AC, pools everywhere, ceiling fans, geothermic pump… and so on…
