As temperatures start to rise, I can’t help but think about the question on everyone’s mind as summer approaches: "How can we best keep our home cool this summer?"

Even if you’re lucky enough to have a competent AC system in your home, it's a good idea to consider adding some fans. Fans are great for a few reasons: They allow you to control the temperature in a specific room, they’re more energy-efficient and best of all, they’ll allow you to save money on your monthly electricity bill.

Below, we've compiled a list of top-selling ceiling fans that are less than $500, organized from low to higher price points. (While, you're at it, follow our instructions on how to install a ceiling fan.)
