How to Select the Right Ceiling Fan

Hi!

I am new to this website. I need some suggestions for buying a new ceiling fan. Its for my kitchen, as it tends to get rather hot while I am cooking. I have never bought one before, so could you tell me what I should be looking for when buying a fan? I need something affordable and it should not consume too much electricity. Thank you Happy

Fans with BLDC motors

Hi Avishek

First of all let me tell you that normally ceiling fans do not consume too much electricity. It is nominal. An average fan consumes about 90 watts. However, if you want more energy efficiency then there are some ceiling in the market which comes with BLDC motors. These work on about 30 watts. These fans are also more durable than the others n you get remotes too. On the downside, they are significantly costlier than the other fans. Check them out if it suits your needs.

Prioritize Airflow and your Room Size

Today's fans are different from the fans I bought 10 years. So, it's important that you know the important factors you have to consider when buying your fan. If you simply want an aesthetically-pleasing fan, there are lots of them but they may not distribute as much air as you'd want. A few things you should keep in mind, at all times, when choosing ceiling fans is the size of your room, and how much air the fans blows (airflow). Other factors such as design or lighting should not be a priority, unless otherwise
