Do you need to wake up in the middle of the night just to off or turn down the speed of the fan when the temperature drops at night ? Before I got this fan I always need to wake up in the middle of the night either to switch off the fan or to turn down the fan . Saw the advertisement one day about the sleep mode function that this fan has - that will decrease the speed of rotation following fall of temperature especially during rainy nights . Thus without a second thought I quickly buy this fan to save me all the trouble of waking up, to either switch off the fan or decrease the speed.
Other plus points: It comes with a remote control that I can easily control without getting up to go to the switch . It has 3 choices for timer, one hour, two hour or even 6 hours timer. In tropical countries here thunderstorms and lightnings are common too hence to protect our fans from lightning it has a thermal safety fuse to prevent from electrical surge. That is very thoughtful of Panasonic
Cons: Cleaning ceiling fan is always a problem and messy too. If only they have a a material where dust will not stick - a non stick fan !!
