Historic Windmill Ceiling Fans Were Built for Hot Summer Months

Psst. Summer is coming. OK, who are we kidding? It’s already here. But as the calendar eventually flips from May and June to July and August, those hot temps we think we see right now will skyrocket. AC units from the country all the way to the bright lights of the big city will kick into overdrive, and every ceiling fan you own will be set on full blast.

So here’s the age-old question: Is there a better way to move a lot of air and keep ourselves cooler for longer? The answer is yes — as long as you have a historic windmill ceiling fan. 

After all, they were built for hot summer months!

It’s the historical design that makes windmill fans so efficient

At The Original Windmill Ceiling Fan Company, we call it a windmill fan because that’s what it is. They’re just like the farm-style, historic windmills overlooking hundreds of thousands of country homes across the country. Our owner, Kelly Eggers, was glancing up at the one on her property a little more than six years ago when she had an epiphany — if her husband could make an aluminum version lightweight enough to attach to any ceiling, surely it would drive the air down where the standard AC could then cool it. Kelly’s idea was perfect, and now, more and more people want one of their own.

Think about all the benefits windmill ceiling fans provide in comparison to mass-produced, store-bought fans:

  • The special angle of the blades naturally propels more air.
  • They come in 14 to 18 blades for optimal air movement for rooms with high ceilings.
  • Available in 46″, 52″, 60″, 66″, 72″, 84″ and 96″ diameter sizing. No other fan can match that.
  • Our windmill fans are constructed only of quality aluminum and steel.
  • They can move tons of air even at a slower rotation.

When you’re trying to move a lot of air — especially in the summertime, where comfort is the name of the game, no ceiling fan on the market can match the strength, craftsmanship, and efficiency of a windmill ceiling fan.

The Cattleman Custom Finish

Don’t overlook the lightweight aluminum 

Ceiling fans, especially those that go outdoors, SHOULD NOT be made of wood. Having a wood ceiling fan on your outdoor space may add that natural element you’ve been looking for, and it may even look pretty. But it’s not durable, especially in North Texas, where the summer temps are tough to hold up against. 

Over time, wood-based ceiling fans, and even those made from particleboard, will:

  • Warp, fade, and sag
  • Become weather-beaten
  • Suffer from unsightly chips and cracks
  • Become water-logged
  • And overall, they will look cheap

Our blades are made of aluminum. That means they are strong and built to last. And what’s better is that they are assembled in Texas and can be 100% customized to suit your style and taste. So even if you like the “wood look,” you can get that with our custom finishes. These fans can match any style, whether you enjoy rustic, farmhouse, or contemporary. 

Simply, it’s the best ceiling fan you will ever own.
