Why ceiling fans have candelabra bulbs?

There is a fairy historical reason as to why ceiling fans have candelabra bulbs. Here we need to journey back to the year 2005. President George W. Bush enacted the Energy Policy Act of 2005. One provision of this act limited socket type lighting to 190 watts or less so as to conserve energy. To respond to the Bush government's energy efficiency policies, many ceiling fan manufacturers produce low-watt incandescent bulbs to keep the total wattage of the light kit. A few years later, however, new regulation of the act stated that medium base 60-watt incandescent bulbs need to reduce by 20% energy consumption. They accordingly changed medium base 60-watt incandescent bulbs into smaller candelabra sized bulbs as alternative energy-efficient options.

They are therefore much more decorative for their retro and attractive look. Once powered on, it shines atmospheric glow and enchants the beauty of the whole room. With E12 or C7 bulb base, they can widely fit exquisite smaller light fittings or large chandeliers with e12 socket, or screw into standard e26 socket using an adapter.
