What benefits does the fan offer?

You essentially have an option between reversible air conditioning and a fan to chill your interior. The latter is superior to an air conditioner in a number of ways:
ecologically sound The fan only stirs the air at room temperature; it does not create any new air. The layer of air close to your skin is constantly being renewed, giving you the sense of being fresh. The fan frequently expels this layer of air, giving you the impression that it is fresh air, whereas ordinarily your body heats this area to the point where it exceeds the ambient temperature. In times of intense heat, the resulting air current aids in the drying of sweat. A simple air conditioner or reversible air-water heat pump will require a lot more energy to run.

What type of fans are available?

Axial fans

Axial fans are basic. Here, the propeller is directly attached to the motor’s axis. As a result, the latter instructs her. Both pedestal fans and ceiling fans, or even just ceiling fans, use the axial system. Axial fans are frequently noisier than other types.

Free-standing fans

There is nothing better than a little table fan, a portable fan, for your workstation or dining table. Of course, the propeller’s diameter is fairly modest.

Standing fans

There is nothing better than a little table fan, a portable fan, for your workstation or dining table. Of course, the propeller’s diameter is fairly modest.

Air column fans

The air columns’ ventilation system is unique compared to that of other equipment. It is now a bladed wheel that revolves in a casing rather than a bladed propeller. Centrifugal or column fans provide three benefits. They are, in fact,

air column fans use less energy, are quieter, and are more aesthetically pleasing.

What are specific fans?

The air blowers

These devices are used for large rooms such as workshops or garages .

Misting fans

With a misting fan, you enjoy a pleasant feeling of fresh air, while receiving fine droplets of pressurized water projected by the device.

Ceiling fans

In this instance, screws and dowels are used to firmly secure the apparatus to the ceiling. Make sure the weight can be supported by the thickness of the ceiling. You can add reinforcements at this level to safely accommodate the gadget if you are building your home or commencing substantial renovations.

Dyson bladeless ventilation

There is now a fresh generation of fans available. These fans don’t have blades. The operation is supported by sophisticated technology, the main goal of which is to provide extremely high user comfort in terms of sound.

However, Dyson bladeless fans are more expensive than centrifugal or blade-style fans despite being equally as effective.

Standards for selecting a fan

You got it; there are many different types of fans. There are a number of factors that must be considered in order to determine the type of product that best suits your needs:

  • the blades’ surface and rotational power;
  • the area to be cooled;
  • the space available for storage;
  • the noise; the airflow;
  • the remote control; the alternatives;
  • and the design.

Power of rotation and blade area

It is automatically linked to the following criterion, which is the cooling area, by default. It goes without saying that a low-power fan won’t be very useful at cooling a large living room.

There are two schools of power:

  • While some fans will in fact have smaller blade surfaces but higher rotational powers,
  • others will be built using the reverse design philosophy. They will be given a good blade surface and a moderate amount of rotational power. The benefit of being less energy-intensive is found in this final category.

What else to consider before making a fan purchase.

The room to be cooled

If you want to update your workplace, bedroom, or living area, you won’t select the same type of model. A pedestal fan will be preferred in the first scenario. Silence is required in a room. Next, the pedestal fan is fascinating.

The fan’s level of noise

On this issue, the devices are not on par. When a fan’s primary purpose is to keep you cool at night, picking one that is quiet or at the very least minimal noise is worthwhile. Try not to surpass 50 dB.

The air flow

It is closely correlated with the device’s power. For every 10 m2, estimate 50 m3. Depending on the device being utilised, the airflow varies.

The remote control

If you decide to fall asleep with your fan on, chances are you want to turn it off in the middle of the night. The presence of a remote control then offers you an additional level of comfort .

The options

  • wheels : A large fan is sometimes difficult to move. If you only have one device for the whole house, the presence of wheels is an interesting option that can greatly facilitate your life;
  • the fogger : It further increases the feeling of freshness;
  • the programming system : Even more interesting than the remote control, the programmable system saves you from having to wake up to turn off your device. It is all the more interesting if you want to refresh your children’s room;
  • ionization : This option brings you additional well-being. The chemistry of the air is indeed modified. Negative ions are brought to it, in order to balance it. This level of balance is rarely reached indoors, due to the presence of many pollutants. The anion supply is therefore interesting for your well-being and your health;
  • humidification : It compensates for the drying of the air by increasing the humidity in the room;
  • Oscillation angle : While most fans oscillate at 180°C, some can spin 360°C.

    The fan’s design

    Even if the fan isn’t attractive, you’ll be using it in your bedroom or living room for a while, so you might as well pick one that complements your decor!

    The amount of room there is to keep the fan

    It would probably be better to forgo a large fan if you reside in a small flat. Both when you use it and when you wish to store it in your cabinets, it will be intrusive.

    Choose your fan based on the surface that has to be cooled.

    And therefore, your decision on a fan will rely on its intended use. The amount of m2 that needs to be updated is one of the key criteria. Of course, this factor has to do with the space where the item will be installed.
