The World's First Smart Ceiling Fan Cuts Energy Bills in Summer and Winter

Energy-efficient ceiling fans and lights by Big Ass Solutions provide year-round sustainability.

A ceiling fan that slashes energy bills in June and January might seem implausible, but Big Ass Solutions products work intelligently with HVAC systems for comprehensive sustainability. In summer, they reduce homeowners' reliance on air conditioning units. In winter, they push rising heat downward, producing energy savings as high as 30 percent. 

To further enhance the energy-savings of their American-made Haiku fan, Big Ass Solutions recently introduced SenseME™, a smart technology that responds to climate fluctuations, learns residents' comfort preferences, and automatically turns the fan on and off as needed. Winter Mode, accessible via the SenseME app, speeds up the fan and pushes hot air downward when the room is empty, so as not to disturb users. It's even compatible with the Nest Learning Thermostat.

Along with smart tech capabilities, Haiku can also be kitted out to include functional LED lighting. Together, their elegant fans and lights add visual interest to frequently neglected overhead spaces. 

The eco-friendly LED Garage Light by Big Ass Solutions promises to extend energy savings beyond ceiling fans to home and commercial workshops. 

For larger spaces, Big Ass Solutions offers the more powerful Isis and Essence (pictured). Their ceiling fans come in a variety of sizes, from eight inches to 24 feet in diameter, to suit all rooms. 

Available in rich finishes, like bamboo and oiled-rubbed bronze, Big Ass Solutions ceiling fans have been recognized by more than 50 international design and technology awards.

With a top-rated Energy Star ranking, their products' eco-friendly bona fides are equally impressive. Installing them can add points toward green certification in esteemed rating systems, like LEED. 

For an exclusive limited time offer, save up to $400 off select fans, including Haiku Caramel Bamboo H-Series.
