With energy prices soaring to all-time high rates, people are replacing their old fans with the latest energy-efficient fans. And though it’s a good decision to shift to energy-efficient fans, you can’t just buy any energy-efficient ceiling fan that’s available on the market. It is important that you compare different energy-efficient ceiling fans on the basis of different parameters such as exact power consumption, star rating, air delivery, warranty, and more. To help, in this post, we have listed a few important things you should keep in mind at the time of buying an energy-efficient fan.
The amount of power a fan consumes varies from one fan to another, and therefore, you should compare different fans on the basis of their actual power consumption that’s usually mentioned in the specifications section. Good brands like Luminous India manufacture energy-efficient ceiling fans that consume as little as 45 watts of energy. Some of their best-selling energy-efficient fans are the Luminous Star 45, the Jaipur Ghoomar, and the London Mayfair.
Just like the air conditioners, ceiling fans too have started getting rated in terms of their energy efficiency. The new age ceiling fans are a part of the BEE star rating scheme. Based on the BEE star rating fans are assigned anywhere between 1 to 5-star ratings where 1 being the least energy-efficient and 5 being the most energy-efficient.
The technology used in the motor is also an important factor that you should look at when buying a ceiling fan. For example, ceiling fans with BLDC technology are far more efficient than the regular energy-efficient fans. The BLDC is a superlative technology that uses permanent magnets that dissipate less heat as compared to the electromagnets used in fans with normal technology.
In addition to energy-efficiency, you also need to ensure that the fan you buy delivers superlative performance. And what’s a better performance measurement factor than air delivery? So it is important that you compare the fans based on their air delivery, before you buy one. Usually, a ceiling fan with an air delivery around 230-250 CMM is good enough for a typical Indian living room or bedroom.
If you want to add an extra zing to your home decor, you must compare different fan designs before you select the one that’s best for you. Brands like Luminous India have energy efficient ceiling fans with different styles and designs. So let’s say if you want to add a royal touch to your home decor, you can choose the Jaipur Tamra that consumes only 47 Watts of energy. Similarly, if you want to go for a fan that adds a modern touch to your decor, you can opt for the New York Chelsea BLDC, a beautiful energy efficient ceiling fan that’s popular as one of the most silent fans in India and consumes only 35W of energy.
Last but not least the brand from which you buy the fan is also very important. That’s because better the brand the better after sales service and warranty you get. One such brand that has the reputation of selling quality products and providing superior after sales support is Luminous India. The company is one of the pioneers who revolutionized the fan industry by introducing energy efficient ceiling fans. And the best part is that not only are their fans reasonably priced but they also consume 40 to 50 percent less energy which means your electricity bills will get substantially slashed. So if you don’t have an energy efficient ceiling fan already, make sure you buy one, today!
