13 Best Ceiling Fans In Malaysia 2020: How To Choose (LED Options Too)

Getting a new house? Or replacing an old fan? These best ceiling fans in Malaysia 2020 will not let you down!

But first, does it matter what type you get? Or whether it has 3 blades or 5 blades? There are even ceiling fans with lights available in Malaysia!

This list has the breakdown of 13 ceiling fans from various brands like Rubine and Panasonic!

Types Of Ceiling Fan

1. Standard Ceiling Fans

These are the ones you’ll think of whenever you hear “ceiling fans”. There are usually 4 or 5 blades that come in a variety of finishes like bronze, black, silver, etc to match your home interior!

And the fan hangs down from a “downrod” which is connected to the mount. That contains the motor.

Ceiling height: 8ft and above (slated or flat)

2. Low Profile Ceiling Fans

Similar to the standard ceiling fans bout without a downrod. Other names include flush mount or hugger fans. Not as powerful as the standard ceiling fans.

Ceiling height: Less than 8ft (flat)

3. Ceiling Fans With Lights

Self-explanatory. Why not get a ceiling fan with a built-in light if your room lacks natural light or other light sources?

4. Damp & Wet Ceiling Fans

You can’t just stick a ceiling fan anywhere you like! There’s a specific type for the outdoors or wherever the humidity is higher.

The motor and blades are weather-proofed with resistance against warping. With 2 ratings, UL damp or UL wet. The latter can withstand rain!

5. Industrial, Agricultural & Commercial Ceiling Fans

Huge and imposing with many blades, these fans can be mounted 10ft to 25ft high! Built to be running continuously with minimal maintenance!

How To Choose A Ceiling Fan

Ceiling fans (like air conditioners) are a permanent fixture so some measuring is needed before you install them!

Unlike with air coolers or stand fans that you can move from room to room!

1. Room Size vs Size Of The Fan

For a fan to do its job (i.e. circulate air) well, you have to pick the right sized fan for the respective room! So measure the room first!

Allocate at least 18 to 24 inches of clearance all around the fan too!

Then, use this quick guide to estimate what fan size you need:

  • 52-inch fan can cool up to a 400 sq ft room
  • 44-inch fan can cool up to 225 sq ft room
  • 42-inch fan can cool up to 144 sq ft room

If you think you’re going to need two fans, here’s a guide on how to make precise measurements.

2. Ceiling Height & Downrod Length

And don’t forget the height too! Especially for standard ceiling fans!

There should be at least 7 ft of vertical height between the floor and the fan!

Example:

  • 9 ft ceiling – 6” downrod
  • 10 ft ceiling – 12” downrod
  • 11 ft ceiling – 18” downrod
  • 12 ft ceiling – 24” downrod

Ultimately, if there’s ample space above (e.g. 12 inches) and below the fan, you’ll get better air circulation!

3. Airflow & Energy Efficiency

CFM stands for cubic feet per minute and this is how airflow is measured. As for efficiency, this is measured in CFM/W (per Watt).

The higher, the better!

Fans with Energy Star ratings have at least 75 CFM/W.

Stay in a dusty area?

A high-efficiency fan will never remove dust the way an air purifier can.

4. 3 Blade Vs 5 Blade Ceiling Fan

These days, a 3-blade fan can be just as efficient as a 5-blade fan (i.e. comparable CFM). It’s now a matter of aesthetic preference over efficiency!

5. Fan Controls

There are 3 available types though you’ll see the last two more often than the first now! Pull chain fans are more a novelty now.

  • Pull Chain – put fans with these in a room that is not often used (i.e. guest room) so the chains don’t wear out as fast
  • Remote – suitable for high ceilings and bedrooms
  • Wall Switch – good for preventing kids from fiddling with the controls

6. Other Favorable Features

  • Low noise output
  • Long warranty
  • Reversible direction
