More than 100,000 Big Ass Fans® have been installed worldwide, providing comfort and energy savings in applications such as homes, hotels, health clubs, schools, restaurants, manufacturing plants, distribution centers, horse arenas, dairy barns and stadiums. But, it was the introduction of the Haiku ceiling fan to the residential market last year that created the biggest buzz yet, according to the company that markets products worldwide.

Haiku is a true original with innovative features such as its Sensorless Drive Technology™ that delivers an 80 percent improvement in efficiency over conventional ceiling fan motors and a unique, 13-step hand-balancing process that ensures no fan will ever rattle or wobble. Additionally, Haiku is equipped with 10 unique settings including sleep, timer and the exclusive Whoosh™ mode, a proprietary algorithm that simulates natural breezes to make you feel up to 40 percent cooler than constant airflow.

Named the most efficient ceiling fan in the world by ENERGY STAR®, Haiku’s perfect marriage of form and function sets it apart from all other ceiling fans.

Now, with the seamless addition of its new LED module, the team of engineers at Big Ass Fans has further advanced the design and performance so the discreet motor can also house an integrated LED light module.

Designed for any number of settings, the module’s 16 increments of brightness range from soft nightlight to primary light source. Add to that unmatched efficiency and longevity, and Haiku’s new light is as groundbreaking as the fan itself. When you don’t need the light, you don’t see the light.

Haiku’s sleek design, top-quality materials, handcrafted construction and precision engineering have been recognized by a growing list of national and international awards, including the prestigious RedDot Design award and Popular Science Best of What’s New award last year. Most recently, Haiku was named a BuildingGreen Top-10 Product for 2013 and listed among Professional Builder’s 101 Best New Products of 2013.
