Zephyr Remote Operated Ceiling Fan

zephyrous god of the west spring wind
Since its launch in June 2016 this has become our best selling and most reliable model.  Our customers love them.  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. The blades are machine carved from a solid block of sycamore wood and hand-finished and balanced.  Sycamore is a very strong and warp-proof wood but also very light weight.

Outdoor Ceiling Fan with Remote

The Zephyr is rated for damp and sea climate use.   This means that the motor is suitable for use in outside damp, humid and sea-salt climate locations provided the fan is kept covered (no direct water, non-IP rated).   The rust-proof finish has a warranty of 3 years.  Ideal for conservatories that get cold and damp in the winter or seaside condos, and boats or ships (with voltage regulator).

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!

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 a similar motor to the £2,000 Haiku ceiling fan but without the crazy 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 models.

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 eliminated completely.
  • 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 and can pass through internal walls easier as well as provide for unlimited zoning permutations.
  • Simple 2 screw install system.

  1. Sarah Cummins (verified owner)

    I saw this fan in a restaurant in Australia and was impressed with it so bought one for my large lounge. It is the best one I have ever come across everyone who sees it loves it. Worth every penny – Thanks Henley Fan

  2. Michael Stephenson (verified owner)

    What a brilliant fan – I never knew anything as nice as this existed. As an interior designer I can appreciate the thoughtful and clever design of the blades and motor. I will certainly be specifying this for my clients.

  3. Celia Robinson (verified owner)

    Impressive style and design. It also works magnificently well – I love it!

  4. Hans Akerman (verified owner)

    I bought a Zephyr in walnut with the smaller blades and decided after a week that the larger one would be better for my large open plan office. Niki was very understanding and helpful in dealing with the matter and we had our replacement blades the next day. Quality products and service like this are hard to find these days and I would highly recommend Henley Fan.

  5. A Godsend – Toby Dalton (verified owner)

    This fan was a life saver for us in the recent hot weather as our bedroom has a high vaulted ceiling that gets very hot. This worked really well and was also very quiet.

  6. Just Beautiful – Sarah Clayton (verified owner)

    This fan looks more beautiful than the photos. The light wood finish and black motor as simply stunning.

  7. A quality product – Graham Ainsworth (verified owner)

    My Dad is a qualified electrician and commented on the quality of this product. Everything about it speaks of quality.

  8. Good service – Tim Kensley (verified owner)

    The motor was making a slight ticking noise and so Henley Fan replaced it straight away without any fuss. This took a few days but solved the issue as we needed a silent fan in our bedroom. It looks very nice now it is up.

  9. Excellent Product – Peter Lincoln (verified owner)

    Everything about this product is excellent. Well worth the money, I will definitely be buying some more.

  10. Disappointed – April Connolly (verified owner)

    I had high expectations of this fan and was disappointed. The delivery was late and one of the blades was damaged which Niki sent us a replacement for but was annoying as it delayed us having it working quickly in the heatwave.

  11. The Best Ceiling Fan Ever – Mike Eve (verified owner)

    Over the years I have bought many ceiling fans but this one is definitely the best one. A lot of careful thought and design has gone into it and the result is impressive. Well done Henley Fan!

  12. It’s a work of art! – Thomas Atherton (verified owner)

    I really love the carved blades they are almost like a sculpture. The flowing lines and curves are really beautiful to look at and matched by an equally impressive performance.

  13. They Work Impressively – Richard Digby (verified owner)

    I put 4 of these in my restaurant which already had AC and the improvement was amazing. I set the AC to be warmer saving money and the customers comment on the improvement too.

  14. Brilliant, better than expected! – Tina Colebrook (verified owner)

    I am very happy with my choice. The Zephyr looks great and works great and is so quiet in my lounge.

  15. Simple, effective style – Tom Stephens (verified owner)

    This was one of my better investments and makes my small office so much more comfortable on hot days.

  16. A godsend for my hot apartment – Sara Gabrowski (verified owner)

    I couldn’t get airflow through my apartment as the windows are all on one side. This does the trick wonderfully and now I can work and sleep in a pleasant temperature instead of feeling cooked all the time.

  17. Perfect for my restaurant – Toby Robinson (verified owner)

    I bought 6 of these for my restaurant and they work a treat. We have air conditioning but it was making the food cold leading to complaints. With the fans we have turned the AC to low, saved a load on the electric and have more comfortable customers.
