Apart from alleviating wheat, fans also make sure that the energy bill does not rise up. The fans alleviate high temperatures by moving warm air towards the attic while still creating a wind chill effect.
On the other part, air conditioners are not energy savers. Even the most advanced units use more power than other appliances in most homes. According to recent research, around 20% Kilowatt of energy each year is consumed by air conditioners. Most ceiling fans use the same amount of power as a 75-100 watt light bulb. Using low amount of energy does not translate to its inefficiency as many may argue but it translates to bringing down the temperatures of the room to 18 degrees. While serving an energy saving function, fans can also accentuate the style and decor in your home or office. Ceiling fan innovation and style have come a long way.
Things to consider before buying a fan.
At first glance it may be hard to see why one fan costs $50 and another costs $600. Part if it may have to do with style and appearance, but beyond that the quality of the higher priced fans are generally superior. Quality superior fans pay attention to blade angle, use higher quality internal components and are better engineered. We are not saying that cheap fans will not function, but they will function at a very short period. Wobbling in a fan further speeds up the wear and tear on a fan.
The other difference is that a cheap fan will move very little air as compared to the expensive counterparts. For any traditional ceiling, the blades should be between 12 to 16 degrees. Most cheap fans have a blade angle of 10 degrees or less.
Fan Sizes and Location
the traditional fans have to be located at the centre of the room. The blades have to bwe 8 inches from tha floor for optimum air circulation. If the ceiling is low, low profile fans should be bought while on the other hand if the ceiling is high, a high profile fan should be hang.
Directional fans are the recent technological development of the fan system and they are placed at a specific point in the room. Other directional fans just swivel to cool a wide area. Most of these blades move more air as they have powerful motors and blades inbuilt in them. These fans can be a good addition to cool a room that already has a traditional fan fitted on them.
Rotational Fans are a hybrid of Traditional and Directional fans. The difference between the traditional fan and this one is that in place of blades, it has horizontal stems.
