Best Ceiling Fans with Lights iMore 2020

Sprucing up or cooling down a room in your home might mean adding a ceiling fan to improve airflow and to keep things cool in the summer. A fan doesn't mean you have to choose between a light and a set of blades, however, as there are a ton of excellent options that come with a light built right in. Here are the best ceiling fans with lights.

Affordable option: Westinghouse 7876400

This 42-inch Westinghouse fan has three blades and is suitable for average rooms up to about 140 square feet, making it an affordable option that many will turn to. The fan is reversible, has three speeds, and a frosted glass light kit has room for two bulbs. A gun-metal finish works with modern or classic decor, and it comes with a lifetime motor warranty.

Get smart: Hunter Symphony

The Hunter Symphony has a sharp, modern three-blade design and comes in three different finishes. This 54-inch fan includes dimmable LED light bulbs, and since it has Wi-Fi, it can connect to popular smart home platforms like Apple's HomeKit. Through HomeKit, you can adjust the toggle the power, adjust speed, turn on the light, and even change directions with just a tap.

Natural look: Minka-Aire F844-DK

This Minka-Aire 52-inch fan is made primarily from koa wood for a natural look and includes three blades to match. Control the fan speed and LED lights — which are dimmable — with an included remote control, or link it with Amazon Alexa or Google Home. If you're in search of something with a unique design, this is it.

For large rooms: Fanimation Odyn

Fanimation's 84-inch Odyn is ideal for large rooms, as it has nine blades and 31 speeds selectable on a remote control. There are a bunch of different color combinations to choose from to match the rest of your decor, and all have a light kit with an 18 W LED bulb attached. For some extra convenience, light and fan schedules can be set to your liking.

Four-light fixture: Emerson Pro Series II

Instead of a single dome on the bottom of the fan, the Emerson Pro Series II has four separate lights for extra brilliance. You can choose from a bunch of different color combinations for the 50-inch fan, and the five blades are reversible for summer and winter use. All fans come with a lifetime warranty on the motor, and a 4.5-inch downrod for a dropped style.

For the outdoors: Casablanca Aya

Casablanca's Aya fan not only looks good, but it also works both indoors and out. This 54-inch ceiling fan features a simple 2 blade design with an LED light, 4 speeds, and smart home connectivity. The Aya is rated for damp areas and is built with stainless steel and has rust-resistant components making it perfect for a porch.

Cool down, light up

Just because you want to get the air moving in your home doesn't mean that you have to sacrifice your lighting. Ceiling fans with light kits offer the best of both worlds, and some of them are even smart and work with apps or voice assistant. All of the above fans can complement a home that needs airflow and light, but if you're still wondering where to start, we have some suggestions.

The Westinghouse 7876400 is a great choice if you don't want to spend more than $100 and don't have a large room to cover, while Minka-Aire's fan made from koa wood has a unique design that leans more toward the natural look.

Want a ceiling fan that you can control with your phone or voice? Then Hunter's Symphony fan is the one for you. This ceiling fan sports a clean, modern design, and connects to your home network via Wi-Fi for the ultimate in convenience. Tell Siri through HomeKit or Alexa to turn on the lights and cool it down with just a shout, or use automations to have the fan kick on when it gets a little stuffy, you can do it all with this fan.
