Ceiling fan – a crucial factor in power consumption

 In Ceiling Fan

Did you know?

Ceiling fans consume much more power than lights if not chosen correctly.

While a standard tube-light consumes around 55 Watt on an average, an old ceiling fan can consume about 80 to 90 watts. You might think that an old, antique fan may add a nice antique touch to your room decor, but it can be the reason for your increasing electricity bills.

What does power consumption for ceiling fans depend on?

The power consumption of a ceiling fan depends on the size and type of motor used in it. An ordinary ceiling fan would consume more power as compared to an energy efficient ceiling fan.

The following list will give you a better idea about different ceiling fan categories and their power usage –

20 to 32 Watt Ceiling Fans

This category includes fans that have BLDC or DC Motors or are certified by Energy Star. These fans consume much less energy than any other ceiling fan in the market. Low power consumption obviously means reduced electricity costs.

Only a few have managed to make it under this category though. ATOMBERG (28 Watt, 220.00 CMM) is one of the fans in this category.

35 to 50 Watt Ceiling Fans

Even though this category excludes a majority of the Energy Star ceiling fans, it includes some of the most energy-efficient ceiling fans in the industry, based on their motor size and energy consumption when running at the highest speed.

50 to 65 Watt Ceiling Fans

Most 5-star fans, which claim to consume the lowest wattage fall under this category.

65 to 80 Watt Ceiling Fans

These fans are usually the earlier models that consume a lot of energy. People prefer these fans because they are cheaper compared to energy efficient ceiling fans. But the truth is, apart from the initial investment, energy efficient ceiling fans are great for long-term use as they have almost zero maintenance costs.

80 to 95 Watt Ceiling Fans

Ceiling fans with large blade sweep of 60″ and above fall into this category. Due to the large-sized motors running at high speed, these fans typically draw 80 to 95 Watt.

95 to 110 Watt Ceiling Fans

The ceiling fans in this category are mostly the outdated and old models. Needless to say, they consume a lot of energy.

Though there is a large variety of ceiling fans to choose from, it is advisable to think from the point of energy efficiency. If you are looking for a fan that’ll endure the tests of time, always opt for energy efficient fans.
