A Compact, Efficient, & Quiet Fan

The Vornado Energy Smart 533DC air circulator is the perfect fan for smaller spaces. Place it on your floor, bedside table, or at your work desk.

  • Uses up to 80% less energy than regular AC fans, including the Vornado 533 and Vornado 460 (non-DC models).
  • Comes with a standard power plug and lead.
  • Moves air up to 22 metres.
  • Variable speed dial for full control of airflow, noise, and power consumption.
  • Whisper quiet cooling on low - ideal for night-time usage.

 Vornado 533DC vs Vornado 533 & Vornado 560

We sell the Vornado 533DC (pictured on the left), not to be confused with the sometimes cheaper but poorer performing Vornado 533 and Vornado 460 (pictured on the right).

Vornado 533DC vs Vornado 533 & Vornado 460

If you're confused by the Vornado range - you're not alone. We exclusively sell the Vornado Energy Smart DC fans only. They're better than the AC models in three key ways:

  1. They use substantially less power, so they cost way less to operate.
  2. They are much quieter at low and medium speeds. At low speeds, they are practically silent.
  3. They have a fully variable speed dial, rather than just three discrete speed settings on the AC models.

Vornado 533 DC Fan - a Better Way to Keep Cool

The Vornado Energy Smart compact fan features:

  • Efficient DC motor technology - uses between 2 watts of power (300 RPM) and 40 watts on max (2,800 RPM).
  • Provides whole room air circulation - see graphic below.
  • Quality guaranteed - backed by a 5-year warranty.

Unlike regular portable fans, Vornado fans are designed to provide whole room circulation. They call the resulting tornado like airflow "Vortex Action."

Vornado Vortex Air Effect“An inlet guide cone directs air to the most efficient portion of the blades. In turn, the wide, heavily contoured blades churn the air into motion. The air then travels through a duct which sculpts the air into a column shape. As the air exits the Air Circulator, Vornado’s AirTensity™ Grill straightens the airflow to ensure the air travels long distances. The airflow column will spin and twirl to the opposite corner hitting the wall where it will split off and recirculate to the centre of the room.” - Vornado Air

It's a bit heavy on marketing jargon - but the point is: it works. 

Save Energy & Sleep Well

Many people find a nearby portable fan can help them sleep. This includes both hot sleepers and those who benefit from some level of white noise. With the Vornado 533DC’s precise speed control, just the right level of airflow or white noise can be set.

For overnight use, the energy savings really add up too. The Vornado 533DC provides useful airflow with as little as 3 watts of power. This is far less than the 30 watts (or more) used by typical AC fans on their lowest setting.

Frequently Asked Questions

What about other Vornado fans?

Vornado has a wide range of fans but only a few models use efficient DC motors - called the Energy Smart series. Naturally, we only stock the energy-efficient options! If you are looking for a larger fan see the Vornado 633DC Floor Fan or Vornado 683DC Pedestal Fan.

How easy are they to clean?

Vornado fans have a detachable grill making it easy to clean the blades.

Is it adjustable? Do they oscillate?

Yes, the fan angle is adjustable, but they do not oscillate. Instead, they're designed to circulate air throughout the entire room from a fixed position.

Does the 533DC come in black?

No - this energy-saving fan is only available in white. We do sell some black ceiling fans if you're interested.

DC Vornado fans

These are great little units. I use them to move the cool air from a single ac unit to all the rest of the house. It’s a big four bedroom home. I have 3 of the small dc fans to push the cool air into the smaller bedrooms and a couple of the larger ones to push the cool air way up the other end of the house and into the master bedroom. It works a treat. Electricity is about $4.50 per 24 hours with the fans and air conditioner on constantly. We couldn’t be more pleased. In our NQ tropical summer the house is constantly cool and dry.
One of the fan speed controls failed within 2 days and Reduction Revolution had delivered a new one before the end of the week. We returned the broken one. No cost, no worries. Thanks Reduction Revolution for great service and advice, at the right price.
