This difference can be succinctly put into words without a technical explanation by Dr. Mayur (Superfan) – AC cools the room while the fan cools the humans in the room. As the fan cools only the occupant in the room, its coverage area is critical…

Does your BLDC ceiling fan have lightning protection?

Does your BLDC ceiling fan have lightning protection?

Let us begin with the understanding the power surge and its common causes. A power surge is simply an unexpected increase in voltage, it is also called transient voltage. The common causes are fluctuations caused by large appliances like ACs, washers, dryers, lightening, load dump at the power grid, improper wiring.  It is commonly observed that electronics are sensitive to failure due to a power surge – a sudden burst of electricity higher than normal levels. One of the major…

What determines ceiling fan airflow? [4 crucial parameters]

What determines ceiling fan airflow? [4 crucial parameters]

The primary use of ceiling fans is to offer the desired thermal comfort by delivering sufficient airflow. There is a misconception of relating airflow to only the speed of a fan (RPM). Though, it is true that when the speed (RPM) of a fan increases by 10%, the airflow increases by 10%. Explore fan laws.  But the speed of a fan is not the only parameter that influences the airflow, and it is wrong to compare two fans by their…

How can you use ceiling fans in winter?

How can you use ceiling fans in winter?

In a closed space like a room with still air, the cooler air stays at the bottom, and the warm air rises to the ceiling. This segmentation of air happens due to the difference in the densities, and this phenomenon is called stratification. This becomes a problem in winters as the much-needed warm air recedes to the ceiling leaving the space close to the floor cooler. When heating elements are used to warm the space, it requires more heat generation…
