The Haiku Ceiling Fan, designed and produced by Kentucky-based Big Ass Fans, is a marvel of energy efficient design. And it happens to look pretty amazing as well.
Ceiling fans help reduce the workload on heating and air conditioning, while keeping living space just as comfortable. In hot weather, moving air creates a cooling effect on skin which allows the thermostat to be set slightly higher; in cold months, a fan helps evenly distribute heated air that collects at ceiling level.
The Haiku fan utilizes carefully formed, sustainable bamboo airfoil blades to quietly move air with a minimum of effort. But what really sets the Haiku apart from its competitors is its high-efficiency motor, using as little as 2 watts of power (as opposed to around 100 watts for a standard design) and exceeding Energy Star requirements by as much as 750%. Between its amazing efficiency and reducing the strain on your HVAC system, the manufacturer estimates that a Haiku fan will pay for itself in just one to two years.
