Apart from alleviating wheat, fans also make sure that the energy bill does not rise up. The cooling sensation is brought about by displacing warm air high up the attic while creating some wind chill effect.
Air conditioners are not known to be very energy efficient. Far from any other appliance in the home, air conditioners no matter how technologically advanced, they tend to consume huge amounts of energy. 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. The fan is able to bring down the temperatures of the room to about 18 to 10 degrees lower. Fans also serve to add some little style and color to your office or room when installed. This is because the ceiling styles and fans have come a very long way.
Buying a fan; what to consider
it is very difficult to understand why a particular fan costs less than the other. Sometimes the price may vary because of the design and style of the fan but mostly, the Quality is the main determinant of an expensive fan. A quality fan has its internal components well engineered. On the other hand, cheap fans have a very short lifespan. Wobbling in a fan further speeds up the wear and tear on a fan.
More to this is that the air moved by high quality, expensive fan is more than that moved by the low quality blades. Ideal blade angle for a traditional ceiling fan is 12-16 degrees. Most cheap fans have a blade angle of 10 degrees or less.
Where should a fan be located?
the traditional fans have to be located at the centre of the room. In order to make sure that the air circulates maximumly, make sure that the fan is at a maximum of eight inches from the ground. For a high profile fan the ceiling should be placed high while for a low ceiling a low profile ceiling should be hung.
Directional fans, as the name implies, are stationary fans designed to cool a specific location or area. However, to ensure that a wider area is cooled the directional fans may just swivel. Generally directional fans have stronger motors and sharper blade angles to move air more aggressively, but otherwise follow the same general quality guidelines as the traditional fans. 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.
