Ceiling fans are recognised by BASIX and are considered one of the most energy efficient forms of cooling. They are included as an individual cooling system option in the living room and bedroom cooling system menus.
If the ceiling fans are combined with an air conditioning system (ceiling fans + air conditioning) then the energy efficiency rating (star rating or EER) of the air conditioning system must also be specified.
Note that if ceiling fans have been used in the Simulation thermal comfort method, they cannot also be selected in the energy section of BASIX. See Ceiling fans in the Simulation method.
