How To Select The Right Ceiling Fan?

How To Select The Right Ceiling Fan?

From Superfan, India’s first super energy efficient ceiling fan

It is prudent to spend a few minutes choosing a ceiling fan because it will be with you for over 15 years. It is not as simply about the aesthetics!

The factors that must be considered for choosing a ceiling fan are:

[1] Required fan size
[2] BEE star rating
[3] Aesthetics

Here is some expert advice on how to pick the best ceiling fan.

The Appropriate Fan Size

There is a simple method to determine the right size (span) and the number of ceiling fans. The following steps elaborate on the method:

1. Measure the dimension of the room or space in terms of length and breadth. (Ex: 10×16 Sq ft)

2. The smaller dimension (Ex: 10 ft) determines the fan size (span). The size is the diameter of the ceiling fan’s blade sweep.  The table shows the dimensions and their corresponding fan sizes.

3. The larger dimension (Ex: 16 ft) determines the number of fans. When the larger dimension is double the smaller dimension, the number of fans doubles.

Example: In a 10×16 Sq. ft room, one 48” ceiling fan or two 36” fans are used depending on the required coverage. It is advisable to maintain a 2 ft of clearance between the blade tips of the two fans.

The above method is only an indication to cover most of the area in the rectangular space. It is obvious to install the fan such that the airflow covers the frequently used space of the room.

The optimal performance requires installation height to be 8-10 ft above the floor, with a clearance of at least 1 feet from the ceiling.

BEE Star Rating

The BEE star rating indicates the efficiency of the ceiling fan. The efficiency here is denoted by a parameter called service value, which is the ratio between airflow and energy consumed. The service value determines the number of stars on a scale ranging from 1 to 5 stars as per the Bureau of Energy Efficiency(BEE) guideline. Read more on BEE star rating here.

In simple words, higher stars mean higher efficiency and less electricity consumption.

Aesthetics

Typically, ceiling fans are available in various designs and colours. There will be options to contrast or match the rest of the room. Superfan offers a wide range of products and cool colours that will perfectly match your rooms. Browse our products catalogue for more exciting blade patterns.

Superfan offers 5 years of manufacturer warranty!

The relative importance of size, efficiency, and aesthetics depend on the requirement. Say, if your ceiling fan runs over 12 hours a day then star rating must be considered a primary factor or if the fan is seldom used and there is a requirement to complement the space, then aesthetics become important. Choose a fan apt for your requirements! Happy Shopping!
