VARI FAN - 4 or 5 BLADE REVERSIBLE. LOOKS GREAT

WHY DC POWER? When you produce your own power, you are very aware of how much power each appliance uses. The average AC-powered ceiling fan draws between 0.5 and 1 amp. When an inverter is used to run the AC ceiling fan, you are pulling 5 to 10 amps DC to run the fan. This does not include the power consumed by the inverter to produce the AC power required by the ceiling fan. The Vari-Cyclone, DC-powered ceiling fan, runs directly from your battery bank, no inverter required, and draws only 0.5 amp @ 12 VDC, making the Vari-Cyclone 10 times more energy efficient than an AC-powered ceiling fan. (Inverter conversion loss = 7%-15%, + power consumption) The DC fan rpm is low to save energy. See the technical information to see rpm speed. You can count the rpm on the 12v fan at 60 rpm. The 24v fan speed is almost double making it a wise decision for the airflow to be good, which you cannot count because of its speed.

NOTE: REVERSE ON THE CYCLONE FANS NOT RECOMMENDED. ONLY IF BLADES ARE TURNED AROUND CAN THIS BE EFFECTIVE.
INTERIOR OR EXTERIOR USE ! MORE AIRFLOW

Technical Information     1-Year Warranty

This fan can be hooked up to either 12 or 24 volts. It will run faster on 24 volts and draw a little more amperage:
12 Volt: 0.5  Amps
24 Volt: 0.78 Amps

Purchase one of our speed controlls if you are on a 24 volt system to slow it down a bit. We also sell a reversing switch.

The Vari-Cyclone, available in 3-blade and 4-blade models, will outperform any other DC-powered ceiling fan available.

In tests conducted by the Florida Solar Energy Center,* the 3-blade Vari-Cyclone showed a 22.8% increase in cubic feet per minute (CFM) over our 5-blade, 42" Vari-Fan.

The Vari-Cyclone can bring the warm air down from your high ceilings, blow a cooling breeze and keep the air circulating on your porch, classroom, warehouse, etc.

The Vari-Cyclone will give you years of energy efficient, trouble-free use operating at 12 or 24 VDC, mounted close to the ceiling or installed with the16" down rod.

The Vari-Cyclone can be powered from a battery bank or directly from a PV panel.

The classic white body and blades will fit almost any décor. Un-Painted allows you to paint any color to match your decor.

The Un-Painted fans allow you to paint the fan any color you want.

Ceiling Fan, 12 or 24 Volt DC

$156.00 Un-painted Only
INTERIOR USE ONLY

 

Technical Information      1-Year Warranty

The Vari-Fan can be operated at 12 or 24 V DC. There is no need to order a specific voltage.*

The Vari-Fan comes with a matte black finish, but it can be easily painted following the instructions that come with each fan. Estimated time to prepare and paint each fan is approximately 1 hour using one can of spray paint.

The main body parts (the black parts) of the Vari-Fan are made from injection molded ABS plastic insuring a lightweight, very durable fan that will stand up to a variety of environments from extreme heat and cold and high humidity to very dry. The Vari-Fan will not corrode, dent, or show minor scratches.

Each part of the Vari-Fan is made to the highest quality giving the customer years of trouble free use.

Please Note:
Lights: The Vari-Fan cannot be mounted with a light kit because of the motor design.

Switches: Because of the motor design, the Vari-Fan is operated by a wall switch, not a pull cord. The Vari-Fan does not come with a switch, but one can be purchased from us.

* A 24 volt user may wish to use a speed control - check with your dealer.

Where & How to Use a Ceiling Fan

The Vari-Fan can be operated at 12or 24V DC.

At 12V DC, the Vari-Fan is very effective at distributing warm air evenly throughout a room.

The fan should be mounted in the hottest area of the room, i.e., near the peak of a vaulted ceiling or near the heat source (never over) in a conventional room with a low flat ceiling.

If you are trying to move air from one room to another, we recommend installing two Vari-Fans - one in the room that is too warm and a second in the middle of the cooler room to pick up and distribute the warm air.

In rooms of over 500 sq. ft. (15.4 sq. m.) or with ceilings over 15 ft. (4.5 m) high, two Vari-Fans will be more effective than one.

At 24V DC, the Vari-Fan is not only effective at distributing warm air but can also deliver a cooling breeze on those hot and humid days. We strongly recommend you install a speed control when operating the Vari-Fan at 24 volts especially if the fan is mounted at a ceiling height of 9 ft. (2.7 m) or less. The Vari-Fan at 24V DC will be most effective in rooms of 700 sq. ft. (21.7 sq. m.) or less. Larger rooms may require two or more fans.
