Why Ceiling Fans ?
Ceiling fans can complement any decor, increase your comfort by keeping your room cool, help you save money on your energy bill. This guide will help you understand which type and size ceiling fan will work best in your home
Choosing the Right Size Ceiling Fan
Room size matters before you purchase your ceiling fan ensure you get the size that will be most effective for the space.
Total Size of your room in feet
Best Ceiling fan for the below room sizes
Less than 12 feet : 36 inches or less
12 to 15 feet : 40 to 48 inches
More than 15 feet : 52 inches or more
If you have an extreme high ceiling, or sloped ceiling, hang your ceiling fan from a downrod to lower it to the desired 8 or 9 feet from the floor. Also remember to get a long pull chain if its a fan with a light kit, remote or wall mounted fans and often a good option for such room, so you can operate the fan with ease.
ENERGY SAVING FANS VS NON ENERGY SAVING FANS
BLDC FANS - In most cases, these fans use less energy – up to 70% less than a standard AC fan. They are generally extremely quiet. They will often have more speed options, and are generally faster to start, stop and change speed. The motor is generally heavy in ceiling fans.
REGULAR AC FANS over DC Fans - DC ceiling fans are far more expensive when compared to an equivalent AC model. Although they do use less electricity and therefore save money there, the saving part is very minimal. For example, if a DC fan saves you 20W per hour of use, and you use it for 10 hrs per day, 100 days per year (all night, all of the summer, on low speed), you save about 150 to 200 Rs per year at normal electricity rates.
AC fans can be controlled from a wall control, pull cord or remote, while DC fans can generally only be controlled by remote. Remotes are more likely to be lost, broken, run out of batteries. Some DC fans are available with an optional wall
controller, at an extra charge subject to availability. AC fans are still extremely energy efficient, a standard model will use no more than 60 to 100 watts on high speed.
Either of it anything, there are many factors that will determine your decision.
At the moment, there are a very few DC models available, Most New Brands in india are depending on Importing These models there are a only a few brands to select from like ORIENT and CROMPTON in the fan industry, so that might limit your choice if none suit your style, function or budget. In the coming years, it is likely that there will be many more options in DC.
Ultimately, what is most important to remember is that you can get great quality ceiling fans with either AC or DC motors. Fans which are extremely quiet, don’t wobble and create good air movement. And although AC motors may use more energy than DC motors, they nevertheless use very little energy, equivalent to one or two standard cfl light bulbs on high speed. Compared to most household appliances, especially air conditioners, this is nothing! So once you have worked out your style, budget and function needs, feel confident in going either AC or DC.
