For those looking for a breath of fresh air, the Haiku 52 fan is a greener way to cool your home than air-conditioning. Big Ass Fans recently launched the product to mass acclaim—it has won over 40 international awards for its energy-saving capabilities and forward-thinking technology, not to mention its simple, stylish looks. The fan features a direct-current motor and sensorless drive for efficient, super-quiet airflow. It also comes with seven speeds, including Whoosh mode, which produces an airflow that feels 40 per cent cooler than the normal fan airflow, as it mimics the effects of a natural breeze.
