Socket Fan is an LED light and a ceiling fan in one that's been made to fit into virtually any standard or recessed lighting fixture in your home's ceiling. This white fan reportedly weighs less than two pounds and comes with a remote control that will allow you to operate its three different speed settings and three light settings without touching the fan itself. It's stated that no tools or wiring tasks are required to install one of these fans, so you shouldn't expect to need the help of a professional to do so.
The cost of Socket Fan is $79.95 and the shipping is FREE!

Once you have a Socket Fan, you'll need to choose which lighting fixture in the ceiling of your home (or office) you want to screw it into. If there's a lightbulb in that fixture already, you'll have to reach up and remove it, while the light is off, to free up space for the fan.
Next, screw your new ceiling fan into the fixture you removed the bulb from while leaving the lighting fixture powered off for the time being. If you're using a recessed light fixture, you may need to attach the included socket extender to the top of the fan to properly screw the fan into the fixture.
With your fan screwed into your chosen lighting fixture tightly enough that it won't fall to the floor, it'll be time to turn it on. Instead of using the fixture's corresponding light switch to do so, use the included remote control. Once the fan is on, you'll be able to use the remote to cycle through its speed settings and light settings (three of each) to determine which ones suit your preferences.
When you're done using your ceiling fan and light for a while, use the remote control to turn it off until the next use.
Each Socket Fan comes in a white shade, which means it'll look good against most ceilings and complement the decor in most rooms, including living rooms, kitchens, bedrooms, and offices.
This fan weighs less than a couple of pounds, so almost anyone will be able to carry theirs around in one or two hands. Its lightweight nature will come in handy if you have to climb up to screw it into a lighting fixture or if you want to move the fan from one room to another.
Aside from moving this fan around your home without causing yourself great fatigue, you'll also be able to transport it away from home in virtually any vehicle. You may want to take one to your office for some extra cooling or to the family cottage if it doesn't have air conditioning. Regardless of whether you put it in your trunk, your backseat, or the front passenger seat, it won't take up much space.
The Socket Fan will run at three different speeds, and you can quickly cycle through the three of them by using your remote control. Its lowest speed may be ideal for nighttime when it's not that warm and you want the fan to run as quietly as possible. On the other hand, you may want to turn the fan up to its highest speed on an extremely hot and humid day, especially if you'll be doing physical activities indoors.
Your fan will also come with three built-in LED light settings that you can cycle through with your remote. On cooler days, you might want to use the fan as just a light on its own while turning the fan setting off. Conversely, you can turn the light function off when you just want the device to act as a fan. Since the lights inside this type of fan are of the LED variety, you can expect them to last for up to 50,000 hours without burning out and needing to be replaced.
To install some larger, more complex ceiling fans, you may have to pull out your screwdriver and other tools to get each one properly screwed into the appropriate light fixture. You might even have to do some electrical wiring tasks yourself or call in your local electrician. However, you won't have to do any of this when installing your Socket Fan. All you'll need to do is pick the fan up in two hands and screw its top into a fixture. This makes the fan a good choice for people who aren't experienced with tools or small appliance installation.
Air conditioning can cool down a home, but if you cringe each time you receive your electricity bill after running your air conditioner, using one of these fans may be a better choice. You can have one of these fans cool down the room that you're hanging out in instead of having central air run throughout the entire house while most of the rooms are empty. If you find that one Socket Fan doesn't meet all your cooling needs, getting a couple or even a few for various rooms in your home is an option.
If you work in an office at home or outside it and you have some control over the decor and furniture, you'll likely be able to add a Socket Fan to its overhead lighting fixture. With that, if you're too warm and other people in the building still feel cool, you can simply turn on the fan overhead with your remote and cool your own workspace without disturbing others. In the event that customers and clients come to visit you, they'll probably find the coolness of your space refreshing if they're walking in from a hot day outside.
Although white is an attractive shade for ceiling fans, one drawback to having a white fan is that it'll start to show dust and dirt more quickly than one in a darker shade. That means you'll have to clean it on a regular basis, such as weekly or monthly, to keep it looking good. Cleaning it regularly will also stop it from blowing dust around and potentially stuffing you up. Depending on the location of the fan, some users may not welcome the fact that they'll have to climb up on a chair or ladder to do the cleaning.
If you're looking for a ceiling fan and new lamps for a particular room in your home, you'll be able to take care of both needs at once with a Socket Fan. You won't have to get an overhead ceiling fan without a built-in light and some lamps for illumination, too. What's more, this fan's LED lights will likely last much longer than ordinary incandescent bulbs. Incandescent bulbs may need to be replaced every couple of months, while LED lights will often last for more than a year.

This fan is small but packs a good breeze, it is quiet and cooling, and it also has 3 lights and fan settings controlled by a small remote. Recommended for a wish list of installing a ceiling fan in a small room, worth the buy.
