Ceiling fan buying guide india

Most people simply head to the store and purchase the very first ceiling fan that catches their attention without giving it much thought. Buying a ceiling fan for the house, at least in my opinion, is a small issue compared to, say, choosing the perfect lighting or selecting the precise curtain color. As it turns out, there is a science to selecting the right ceiling fan, as if the countless options now available aren’t enough to confuse us (growing up, the traditional three-blade white fan was a staple in every home). 

What size ceiling fan should I buy?

The size of the ceiling fan must be determined by the dimensions of the room. The diameter of the fan (blade span), which defines its size, must be proportional to the available space. A fan that is too large for the space it is in could create a little cyclone, while one that is too small might not move enough air.

The maximum fan size is generally 36 inches for rooms up to 75 square feet, 42 inches for rooms up to 100 square feet, and 52 inches for spaces up to 225 square feet.

What’s the different number of blades fans have?

In this case, more is not better. The fan’s blade number is more of a design feature than a functional one. The performance of a three-, four-, or five-bladed fan varies little, so pick one based on your own liking and style. Nowadays, you can select from a variety of colors and blades that are reversed.

Additional features

When choosing a fan, the motor is a major element because it affects the fan’s performance. Modern motors provide long-lasting, durable performance, in comparison to small, inexpensive motors that could become shaky and unstable over time. The most recent innovation in this field, known as brushless direct current (BLDC) motors, lowers the amount of energy and power.

Performance Parameters

Air Delivery

CMM is used to express air delivery (cubic meters per minute). It shows the quantity of air that’s been released over the area. Generally speaking, the CMM figure should be higher. However, 230 CMM or so should be the ideal air delivery.

Similarly to this, the air delivery is strongly affected by the RPM of your ceiling fan. The better the air delivery, the higher the RPM (revolutions per minute). There are two-speed options for the common 1200mm (48) fans: Normal Speed and Hi-speed. The RPM for the high-speed fans is 370 or 380, whereas the RPM for the usual speed is roughly 330 to 340.

Energy Consumption

The ‘Wattage Consumed’ field shows how much electricity you’ll use each month. Wattage varies depending on factors like sweep size, blade count, motor type, etc. The BEE star ratings for ceiling fans are the same as those for other electrical appliances. The ceiling fans with a 5-star rating are superior to those with a lower rating.
