Major electrical gadgets are moving towards energy-efficient designs. Ceiling Fans are one of the prime focuses of such electrical gadgets. This article discusses and reviews about the past, present and future scenarios of the ceiling fans. The review includes different electric motors used in this application with its electromagnetic designs, controller developments, and mechanical designs, including Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and blade structures. Present-day energy-efficient fans with their technical and performance indices are extensively discussed as a case study. In this work novel innovations are concerned for the future development of the ceiling fans. The highlights of the article: 1. The fan is one of the potential energy consumption application globally. 2. Reducing the power consumption of these fans leads to lowering the carbon-di-oxide emissions 3. A comprehensive review has been done on ceiling fans for the first time - terms of their electrical and mechanical structures. 4. Currently, available Energy efficiency fans are discussed in details with its performance. 5. Future scope to reduce power consumption is highlighted in the conclusion section.
