The Zephyr Propeller Ceiling Fan Brings You The Perfect Spring Breeze – No 1 Best Seller!


zephyrous god of the west spring wind
Since its launch in June 2016 this has become our best selling and most reliable model.  We have aptly named this design the Zephyr, taken from the Greek god Zephyrus, who was god of the west wind, bringer of the light and early spring breezes.  It certainly lives up to its name with an unmatched performance! The larger sized 180cm/72″ fan moves a massive 17,000 m3/h of air smoothly with laminar flow, by slowly stirring it at just 65-173 rpm with an incredibly low 24 watts of power!

The Henley Zephyr Eco ceiling fan is our own brand fan which means we can offer a great value fan that would normally cost £900 for around £550. It is beautifully styled on an early plane propeller but without the noise! It is an exceptionally high quality ceiling fan made in Taiwan by one of the best manufacturers globally who have been making ceiling fans for over 40 years.   It is perfect for restaurants, theatres, halls, large rooms or common areas where large coverage is needed and can easily be achieved with its powerful ultra-low energy airflow.  It is in fact totally silent and so perfect for bedrooms where every sound is amplified in the still of the night.  There are no annoying buzzes, hums, clicks or wobbles and more importantly something that is often forgotten about on high performance ceiling fans – no air movement noise or uncomfortable turbulent airflow.  This is made possible by the slow moving blade rotation,  balanced motors and blades, and having the lowest speed of all our models at just 65 rpm.  With this fan you can just relax and experience the Zephyr spring breeze without any of the fuss or attention from the fan itself.

The Zephyr comes with a 2.4G wifi 6-speed remote control, is totally quiet, very efficient and extremely reliable.  The stylish design with the hidden slimline very compact motor and upwards sloping blades make this model very popular in many countries where it is sold under different brand names but with only a 10 year warranty.  We have increased the specification and so can offer it with a Lifetime Warranty. This is without doubt one of the best quality, best value, best looking ceiling fans that we sell.

Variations of the Zephyr are taking the world by storm and it has proved to be very popular in Asia, the Middle East and USA.  Now we have made it available to the European market and our customers just love them.  Why settle for anything less? Just compare the quality, design and performance with other fans for this price.  It is a choice you won’t regret – we haven’t had a single return!

Finishes & Sizes

The Zephyr Propeller is a variation of the Zephyr that has a more slimline, flatter propeller type blade that looks amazing.  It is only 35mm thick compared to the regular Zephyr which is 65mm.  This means a slightly lower amount of air movement but it still has the same amazing low energy motor.  It is also a bit more expensive due to the oak wash finish and smaller production runs.

It is available in the following finishes for both the housing and blades.  Click the selection boxes above to see the valid combinations of the following:

The Zephyr Designer Ceiling Fan Video

The Powerful EC/DC Brushless Inverter Slimline Motor

For a detailed technical explanation of why these EC motors are so efficient read the article in EC motors explained from the Editor of Appliance Design.  Below we summarise the benefits.

At the heart of a ceiling fan is its motor so lets take a closer look at the unique EC/DC brushless inverter motor in the Zephyr.  The Zephyr uses exactly the same motor as the £2,000 Haiku ceiling fan but without the price tag!  Taiwan is known to be the World lead in DC vector motor technology and energy-saving inverter controllers not just for ceiling fans but for many appliances such as fridges, freezers and air conditioning.  Inverter technology produces energy savings of up to 70% over conventional AC comparing like-for-like airflow.

It is called inverter as it converts mains AC to DC to change the wave cycle and then inverts it back to AC to give very precise control and efficiency.  The Taiwanese manufacturer spent 3 years of research and development to create this amazing motor (followed by independent testing by the Taiwan ministry of energy).  The final patented DC motor driver board that they developed makes the motor run smoother and quieter thus eliminating any noise.  These motors have been in production for a number of years now and are no longer just the preserve of the ultra-expensive ceiling fan mdoels like the £2,000 Haiku.

EC motors are brushless DC motors with external electronic controllers. The rotor contains permanent magnets and the stator has a set of fixed windings. The controller continually switches the phases in the windings to keep the motor turning. The energy losses internally generated by this electronic control are much lower plus these motors are not limited to set speeds and so typically have 6 speeds.  For more information about these motors watch this video and for more background information about the history and differences between DC vs AC ceiling fans.  The advantages of this patented motor are as follows:

  • Efficiency – An EC DC motor give 70% enHenleyfan_zephyr_Eco_low_energy_ceiling_fan_walnut_closeupergy savings over an AC motor for the same airflow
  • Size – A smaller motor can be used to produce the same power output.
  • Voltage Variations – The motors are not affected by variations in voltage or frequency like AC motors are and so run very smoothly.
  • Speed control – AC fans use capacitors to control the speed which can start to make noise or fail in time.  The circuit controls the speed in a linear fashion and so can run at a bigger range of speeds.
  • Protection – Included in EC motor electronics is protection against: voltage overload, low voltage conditions, phase loss, power surges, locked rotor and overheating.  None of this protection is available on an AC motor.
  • Soft Start – The electronics of an EC motor can provide a soft start, reducing startup current spikes and preventing nuisance breaker trips, and allowing lower component ratings in the system.
  • No Cogging – This phenomena means that a motor with no load a DC motor can sometimes fail to start. But with full sine wave control this is eliminanted.
  • Noise – With speed controlled AC motors, noise levels will show spikes corresponding with the voltage frequency (motor hum), but not so with EC motors.  This motor is totally quiet and so ideal for bedrooms or places where the ambient sound levels are very low.
  • Cooler operation – The increased efficiency creates a cooler running motor at 30°c instead of the 70°c of an ac motor, essential for a ceiling fan whose main purpose it to cool!
  • Reliability – A lower motor temperature = lower bearing temperature = more reliability.
  • 2.4G WiFi – Reliable wireless communication technology for the remote control avoids interference.
  • Simple 2 screw install system.
