low energy dc motor tropical palm style ceiling fans ?

Hi , please can anyone advise me of where we can source 5 low energy dc motor tropical palm style ceiling fans that will run on Bequia's electrical system ? We have been looking for months and have only been able to find ultra modern or fans with finishes that really wont match the feel of our house !

Try "East West International" (www.eastwestintl.com). It is a company in the US south specializing in 220/240 appliances, etc. When you get to the site, click on "Other 22 volt products" in the upper menu. Then click on "Ceiling Fans". You will see a large number of fans of all types. Specifically look at the Hunter model numbers EX323, 324 & 326. I am familiar with the fans since I bought one last year for my house in Spring.

We had exactly the same problem earlier this year and couldn't source any DC fans which were 'traditional' in design. Instead we bought Hunter Outdoor Elements II which although AC still only use 3x the power of the DC fans (60W cf 15W under full load so not a lot different unless you have a house full on 24/7). These are good quality, have palm shaped (GRP) blades and come in rustic colors.

As a general warning - don't buy anything other than outdoor use types even for indoors as the sea blast on Bequia will wreak them. Especially avoid the Westinghouse units which break down or get salted up + the blades come apart in the humidity.

We got ours from Tec-Serv in Mustique who can source them from Europe and have regualr shipments right into Bequia. Not cheap though but worth it in the long run.
