 In Ceiling Fan

Ceiling fan is by default the most used appliance at your home. People are not aware of how much power does ceiling fan consume. An antique and old fan might give a home an antique finish but it can actually result in an additional expense of upto Rs 200 per fan every month.

Ceiling fan is a commonly used house hold appliance. People usually neglect ceiling fan and focus on lightings to save electricity, but the fact is ceiling fan consumes more power than the lightings. Precisely a normal T12 tubelight consumes around 55 watts, whereas a old ceiling fan consumes around 80 to 90 watts.

Ceiling Fan Power Consumption is the draw in watts of the ceiling fan on the highest speed excluding the light fixture. The power consumption of a ceiling fan depends on the size and type of motor used in ceiling fan. An ordinary ceiling fan would consume more power as compared to Energy Efficient Ceiling Fan.
