Illumi Fan is a device that's meant to provide you with the benefits of a ceiling fan and an overhead light at the same time. This light-and-fan combination has been designed to fit into any protruding light socket in your ceiling, and it also comes with an attachment you can use to screw it into a recessed socket. It's stated that the appliance is highly portable within a home or office environment, as each one weighs less than two pounds.

How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Screw Into Light Socket

    To get started with your Illumi Fan, screw it into an available (and empty) light socket. If you're going to be screwing it into a recessed socket, you'll also need to screw one end of the included attachment into the device and the other end into the light socket.

  2. Turn on Fan and Light

    Once you've securely screwed the appliance into the light socket of your choice, it'll be time to use the labeled switch to turn it on. You can either turn on both the fan and light or just one of these functions at once. If you're unsure as to exactly how to use the switch to do so, consult your instruction manual.

  3. Enjoy Light And/or Breeze

    Finally, no matter what room you're in, you'll be able to enjoy a whisper-quiet yet cooling breeze, bright white light to help you see things clearly, or both, as your appliance operates. When you're done using the appliance, remember to use the switch to turn both functions off before you leave a particular room or space.


  • White

    Every Illumi Fan will come in a shade of pure white, which will complement the decor of almost any room, regardless of whether it's an office, a bedroom, a bathroom, or a kitchen. Each one will also give off bright white light to help you more clearly see your phone, your book, or any other small items you might have in front of you.

  • Lightweight

    Since this device weighs less than two pounds, most users should be able to move it from room to room and reinstall it in minutes. During a period of hot weather, you may want to move it back and forth from the kitchen to the living room and vice versa, depending on where your family's hanging out. You might also choose to temporarily install it in a certain child's bedroom if they have an illness that's causing them to be feverish.

  • Tool-Free Installation

    One reason the installation of an Illumi Fan is typically quick is that you won't require any tools to complete the process. If you were to install a large ceiling fan, you might spend up to an hour doing so with the help of a screwdriver, and you might have to do some electrical wiring yourself. However, that won't be the case with this device, as you'll be able to screw it into a light socket as if you're screwing in an ordinary lightbulb. The only additional piece you may need is the recessed socket attachment.

Positive Points

  • Won't Take up Floor Space

    Box fans or rotating fans with a stem will take up space on your floor, but the Illumi Fan won't do this, as it'll hang from your ceiling. Therefore, you likely won't have to move other pieces of furniture or appliances to install this one. Similarly, you'll be able to continue to use all the floor space within the room it's in for other purposes. The ceiling tends to be an empty space in many homes or workplaces, so it's unlikely that this device will fill any space that you could have used for something else.

  • Good for Basements, Garages

    Basements and garages tend to be the darkest (and perhaps the dampest) places within a residence. Consequently, adding some extra light and air to yours by installing an Illumi Fan can be a beneficial practice. If you like to work with tools in your basement or garage, you'll be able to see the tools much more clearly, and feel cooler while doing so, once the appliance is installed. You might also want to install one of these appliances in your shed, for the same reasons, if electricity is available in that shed.

Negative Points

  • Only One Speed and Light Level

    With this fan-and-light combination, you'll get one available fan speed and one available light level. You won't be able to adjust these at all, so if you find the breeze too chilling, or the light too bright, you'll have to turn the appliance off altogether. Since you can't dim this appliance's light at all, or change its color in any way, it won't make a good night light for a child's room. Likewise, it'll probably keep your partner awake if you try to use it as a reading lamp while they're trying to sleep.

  • Requires Electricity

    Operating this device with batteries is not offered as an option, so you'll need to use electricity to operate it. While it probably won't eat up as much electricity as a larger fan or an air-conditioning system, it may still add a bit of money to your monthly bill. You also won't be able to use it at your cottage if it's not wired for electrical power.

Tips & Tricks

  1. Cool Off While Working Out

    If you often work out in a room of your home that can get kind of warm, it's a good idea to install an Illumi Fan in that room. The appliance's fan component can provide you with a gentle breeze as you sweat, so you don't end your workout feeling completely drenched and stinky. Plus, if you need more light to see a list of exercises or anything else in the room, its light component will be ready to give you the necessary illumination.

  2. Hang Over Dinner Table

    You may already have a light hanging over your dining room table, but adding this light with a fan component may make your mealtimes even more pleasant. The appliance's breeze will allow you to stay fairly cool if you don't have central air or a large air conditioning unit, while its bright light illuminates each person's face. Although its breeze will be powerful enough to cool you off, it's not quite powerful enough to blow food and utensils around, so you won't have to be concerned about that.

  3. Use Fan Only at Night

    To prevent the lightbulb within your Illumi Fan from burning out quickly, it's best not to use the lighting component when you really don't need it. When you're ready to sleep, you should flick the lighting component off and use only the fan component to keep you cool and dry as you get some shut-eye.
