What to Consider When you Buy a Fan?

Air circulators or fans provide a quick cooling solution in different situations. A lot of us know that fans–blades circulate air throughout a space to cool, ventilate, and sometimes dry the area. Meanwhile, new technology and additional features have made fans vital cooling and comfort options for more people, and they remain a more economical choice than air conditioners for lighter cooling tasks.

We’d like to share with you 5 tips, which may help you to buy a high-quality fan.

Why you need a fan

When you’re searching the right fan you have to understand, why do you need it. For example, heavy-duty fans are intended for use in a commercial setting where they can ventilate large, open spaces and meet specific cooling needs. Their durable construction is meant to withstand prolonged operation and harsher environments.

For personal use such as cooling around the house, including your bedroom, living room, or patio, the best are residential fans. Such fan models are usually designed with variety in mind and many come in streamlined styles and interesting colors to please the eye. While misting fans cool, they disperse water. In addition, they are best suited for an outdoor environment.

Water damage restoration fans and air movers help repair an indoor environment that has regular water damage. These potent fans are frequently stackable and offer multiple positioning options for effective drying.

Keep in mind your own individual reasons for needing a fan and try to find a model that is meant especially for that purpose, while some fans are flexible enough to satisfy both residential and commercial needs,

The right type of fan

Mostly, fans consist of blades, a housing unit, a motor or power source, and structures to keep it upright (stands, legs, bases, etc.). However, not all fans will fit this standard prototype because of the diversity of designs and functions. Although, there are common design types to help guide you in buying a fan:

  • Tower fans feature a vertical housing unit where the cooling apparatus stretches along most of tower’s height.
  • Pedestal fans have a traditional blade and housing design attached to an upright pole.
  • Bladeless fans create airflow without spinning blades.
  • Centrifugal fans, such as the Phoenix Centrifugal Air Mover, have blades oriented perpendicular to the airflow, as opposed to the more typical axial design where the blades face the same direction as the airflow.

Some factors will determine what kind of fan is most appropriate for you. Due to their higher pressure production, centrifugal fans are usually used for water damage restoration. Tower fans are optimal when space is limited. Bladeless fans can be an interesting conversation piece and add an attractive aesthetic to an otherwise dull room. Take into account the amount of space you have to accommodate a fan and your intended application before selecting a type.

The best place for fans

A location you chose will guide your choice of fan size, type, power requirements, and cooling capability. That is why it is very important to consider the place where you will put it. Fan styles include table fans, floor fans, desk fans, and portable/adaptable fans.

For example, longer power cords and remote control access allow you to place a fan in a less-accessible area, where it may have a greater cooling impact or stay out of the way. On the contrary, your location will largely determine what kind of fan you can get. For instance, a home with pets may require an air circulator with safe housing and/or technology to reduce excessive pet dander and hair build-up. A warehouse or office requiring invariable communication between members may need a quieter fan to avoid noise pollution. We recommend that you get a fan that fits as seamlessly as possible into your environment.

The fan’s power

You’ll want to consider the amount of cooling power a fan can produce, when you decided what kind of model you’d like to buy. Airflow is measured in cubic feet per minute (CFM), which measures the volume of air flowing by a given point every 60 seconds. This characteristic is especially useful when comparing heavy-duty fans, as various sizes of the same model will have different CFM ratings. Sometimes airflow is translated into how far a fan can “push” or “move” air in terms of feet. Vornado fans are particularly known for their high CFM power because they move air in a vortex pattern, similar to how a tornado circulates.

Likewise related to power production is power consumption. You’ll want to note how much power the fan is going to use in relation to how much airflow it will create. if you are buying a fan to cut down on cooling costs or to supplement an existing cooling system. Perfectly, you want more airflow generated per amp used. Some fan models characteristically take power usage into account.

The features you want

It doesn’t matter whether the fan is for your bedroom or your warehouse, you’ll want certain features to best fit your usage. One of the most important options is oscillation: does the fan need to sweep airflow across the room or focus it on a certain spot? Most fans even give you the choice of various oscillation patterns or speeds. Other features to take into consideration include programmable timers,controllable airflow direction, mobility, user-friendliness of controls, remote control access, low noise output, multiple fan speeds, and power options.

Various fans can ensure very different features, so your best bet is to examine several models and decide which seems most appropriate for you.
