Ceiling fans in Ma Prime Rénov’ 2024

The inclusion of ceiling fans in the 2024 version of Ma Prime Renov’ in France is a real step forward for building renovation for all households, whatever their circumstances. Ceiling fans are an economical and easy-to-install solution (without affecting the building) for improving the thermal comfort of occupants all year round.

Whether you’re looking for winter (or autumn) comfort through destratification, or summer comfort through the generation of a cooling breeze, ceiling fans will add a real plus to your renovation at a fraction of the cost.

The tax incentive can be as much as 90% of the cost of the work (see press kit from the French Ministry for Ecological Transition on how MaPrimeRénov’2024 works).

Ceiling fans for everyone

Our ceiling fans are installed in many establishments open to the public (schools, town halls, crèches, secondary schools, universities, administrations, etc.), as well as in collective housing (Ehpad, flats, Crous, military barracks, etc.).
Professional fans provide a simple, fast and cost-effective solution for reducing summer discomfort in all configurations.
Other little-known benefits, such as destratification (winter comfort), also help to reduce energy costs in winter and between seasons (lower heating costs).
Finally, ceiling fans work well in conjunction with air conditioning, as they can delay its start-up or even eliminate the need for it.
There are different models of ceiling fan (with or without blades, with or without light) and different sizes to suit all configurations and budgets.

Whether you’re a client (region, local authority, municipality, social landlord, developer, etc.) or a specifier (architect, design office, etc.), we’re here to help you find the solutions best suited to your objectives, your budget and your expectations.

Tips for sizing and installing ceiling fans

We’ve put together a number of guides to help you determine the optimum number and size of ceiling fans, as well as placement tips.

Similarly, you’ll come across many different types of configuration (false ceilings, plenums, slopes, concrete…), so we’ve designed guides for mounting our ceiling fans according to the various technical possibilities. Our fans are also EASY & QUICK TO INSTALL.

This will save you precious installation time, which will be reflected in the final bill.

These guides & tips can be downloaded free of charge from our professional area.

Case study: Ventilation in new multi-family housing

1. Context

The advent of RE2020 imposes regulatory constraints on new multi-family housing. In order to comply with RE2020, thermal engineers are using ceiling fans to significantly reduce degree hours.

2. Solutions

Samarat ceiling fans are particularly recommended thanks to their high energy efficiency (m3/h/watts), but also because our ceiling fan complies with the NF EN CEI 60335-2-80 standard of 2.30 meters under blades when the ceiling height is 2.50 meters (which is often the case in new apartment buildings).

3. References

Among our achievements:

  • Roquefort les pins (06) with 120 Samarat fans installed.
  • Résidence Le Lavandin (34) with 240 Samarat fans installed.
  • Crous Arsonval Grenoble (38) with 110 Samarat fans installed.
  • Crous Toulon (83) with 200 Samarat fans installed.
  • Silver Cross for Herault Logements (34) with 200 Samarat fans installed.

Air speed

Exhale is a unique, patented (3 patents) bladeless fan that distributes air at 360 degrees. As a result, its diffusion zone is much wider than that of a bladed fan. The air speed of the Exhale ceiling fan is also more evenly distributed for all room occupants.
The Exhale fan is therefore ideal for rooms with a large number of occupants (open-plan offices, schools, colleges, etc.), to ensure that each occupant receives the same air speed.

With the Samarat ceiling fan, we obtain a high airflow rate (almost 12,000 m3/h), which is interesting in RE2020 to reduce DH (the maximum airflow rate is counted in RE2020). On the other hand, air velocity is concentrated directly below the ceiling fan. However, as soon as you move away from the ceiling fan, you’ll find zones with much lower air velocity, which means you’ll have to plan/size more carefully if there are many occupants in the room where the ceiling fan is located.
