Electricity Saving Tips For Homes And Offices

Top Ten Ceiling Fans in India by electricity consumption and size in 2016

By on July 21, 2016
Hindi Translation: बिजली की खपत और आकार के अनुसार भारत के दस सबसे अच्छे पंखे

Ceiling fans are the most neglected appliances when people think about reducing electricity consumption in their house. Most people focus on lighting to fix their high electricity bills, but fans consume a lot more than lights. To give a perspective a regular (non BEE star rated) ceiling fan consumes 75 Watts as compared to a regular (most inefficient) tubelight that consumes 55 Watts. Also a ceiling fan is used during the day as well as night whereas a light is used only during the night. In totality ceiling fans consumes more than twice or thrice the amount of electricity as compare to lights. But most people ignore power consumption of ceiling fans while buying them. BEE or Bureau of Energy Efficiency in India started rating ceiling fans of 1200mm sweep (regular sized ceiling fans) a few years back and since then the manufacturers have started coming out with efficient ceiling fans. To help people make electricity consumption as deciding factor, we at Bijli Bachao have decided to put up a list of Top Ten Ceiling Fans in India by electricity consumption and size.

  • The basis of this ranking is the data from BEE (Bureau of Energy Efficiency). BEE data contains power consumption and air delivery of a Ceiling Fan and this information is self reported by the manufacturers. The data is calculated in test conditions.
  • We have used Service Value or (air delivery/power consumption) for giving ranking to various models of ceiling fans. The Ceiling Fan with the maximum value of Service Value is given the highest ranking. Multiple models with the same value are given the same rank.
  • The list currently only contains data for 1200 mm sweep fans as this information is available to us via BEE. We will update the list once we get data of all other size fans as well.
  • The list below contains only the top ten ranked Ceiling Fans. List of all BEE star rated Ceiling Fans are available on the useful links given below.
  • We regularly update this list as new models get added in the BEE list of Ceiling Fans.

    Hi Abhishek,

    I need to buy a fan for a room size 10′ x 7′. What size would be optimal so that the air is circulated to the entire space?

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      1200 mm sweep fan should be good enough for a 10×7 room.

    • Priyank

      1200mm doesn’t work, neither does 900mm. I mean the air circulation is not uniform.

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      You can put two small fans in that case.

  • Jason

    hi abhishek,

    is the cg maximus which consumes 35 watts not available in the market. if so, is it good. secondly, what are ur views on the gorilla fan and how can it be bought.

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Hi Jason,

      CG Maximus was launched by CG but then they did not take it in a big way. I am not sure why. Some of my friends who are part of energy industry did somehow get to test it. But then it is not available in market.

      Gorilla Fan is a good fan and highly energy efficient as it is a BLDC fan. It is a product of a Startup from IIT Bombay (atomberg) and I have met the people who have started it and they are highly talented engineers. The only big problem that I personally have with BLDC fans is that they operate using remote control. I personally have had lots of challenges with operating appliances with remote control, because they either get lost (if they are really small) or become ineffective in some time. And the changing of speed without a remote is a bit cumbersome with BLDC fans (one has to switch on and off from the plug point to change the speed) andregulators do not work with them.

      The other major drawback with BLDC fans is that the local electricians are unaware of the technology and you may find it hard to get even a minor repair done. But it is not that they fail every day (some of the BLDC fans in my house are running perfectly fine for last 2 years now). But if they do, then getting support from the company is a bit time consuming.

      By the way you can buy gorilla fan from Amazon, here is the link: http://amzn.to/21slgME

  • Srikar

    Hi Abhishek, In a retail store, I was discouraged to buy a energy saver fan 40W(Havells) as the feedback from customers is that they are more noisy when used below max rpm setting. His suggestion was to buy them only we plan to use at max rpm. Please share any information you may have in this regard.

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Hi Srikar,

      I have not heard any such feedback. I personally have a 50W one from Havells and it makes no noise.

  • Rakesh Nandi

    Hey Abhishek , hope doing well , I just spoke with Superfan Customer Care , they are recommending A1 model over X1 , and the reason they are giving and i quote ” X1 breeze will not spread out where as A1 breeze spreads” ,what your take on it .Did you in person or your team reviewed the A1 model ? I’m also noticing that they revamped their website,and the A1 model is now showing 5 Star rating as well as the Best Service value of 6.5 same as X1 ,
    Why Superfan A1 and Gorilla Fan not listed in the Top Ten Ceiling Fans list?

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      HI Rakesh,

      I have only tested X1 model, so I cannot comment if A1 will spread breeze better or not. A1 is a low RPM and low Air Delivery fan. It will work good if you want a quiter environment and also if you use AC in the room.

      The manufacturer has got A1 rated by BEE in april end this year. We did not update our data for fans last month (reason is that fans do not get updated very frequently). Gorilla Fan has still not received BEE star rating (they have applied for it), but their name still does not appear in BEE data on this link: https://www.beestarlabel.com …. and that is why both do not appear on our Top Ten Ceiling Fans list.

    • Rakesh Nandi

      thanx for the quick response , just want to know few more things
      1. what’s the rated RPM of Gorilla Fan?
      2. Is Gorilla Fan works same as the superfan X7 when it comes to increase/decrease the speed(without Remote) by toggling the ON/OFF switch ?
      3. How much time it’ll take to get BEE star rating ?

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Let me see if I can get someone from Gorilla Fan team to respond to your questions.

    • Shibam Das

      Hi Rakesh, this is Shibam here from Atomberg. Trust you are doing fine, kindly find the answers for your queries & in case of any other
      query you can directly contact us.
      what’s the rated RPM of Gorilla Fan?- 350
      Is Gorilla Fan works same as the superfan X7 when it comes to increase/decrease the speed(without Remote) by toggling the ON/OFF switch — Nope, we have a regulator model for better convenience
      How much time it’ll take to get BEE star rating ? — All the documents are approved by BEE, expecting the same in next 7 days.

      Feel free to call us anytime you want,
      Warm regards,

    • Rakesh Nandi

      Hi Abhishek , thank you solving my query by contacting Atomberg , as you can see they are saying BEE matter will be resolved within next 7 days , which is good but when I compare the Technical Specification of Gorilla Fan and Superfan A1 , except the less wattage and regulator option of Gorilla Fan ,the specifications are almost same , and you provided me the information that, A1 is a low RPM and low Air Delivery fan. It will work good if I want a quiter environment and also if I use AC in the room.So is it same with Gorilla Fan?
      The thing is ,right now i’m not buying any AC, and want to invest on Fans which will give me more Air by consuming less electricity , Please Guide me between X1 and Gorilla

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Hi Rakesh,

      The air delivery of X1 is more (230 CMM) as compared to Gorilla Fan (220 CMM). A lot depends on what you want and how hot it gets in your city. I personally use a Havells Fusion 50 Fan which is a 50 Watt fan with 220 CMM air delivery in one of my rooms in Mumbai. As it does not get too hot in Mumbai, even that feels perfectly fine. But if you really want a lot of air, then 230 CMM would be better. Typical high speed high air fans available in market (even the regular non BLDC fans) have air delivery of 230 CMM. If you go for normal (non high speed fans), then their air delivery is about 220-225 CMM. The difference is not huge, but then I cannot give you a reason why you should go for one over other.

    Kindly suggest me a fan with low power consumption and more air delivery combination of both
    My main criteria is air but with it if I can save electricity its more better
    In the above chart shown by you superfan has more air delivery does it means it gives more air than the others in 35 watts

  • Bilal Inamdar

    Hi Abhishek,

    I want to buy fan 1200mm/Normal size.

    NEED – I need AIR AIR AIR… A little bit of noise i don’t care..

    1) What is the major differnece in between Superfan x1 & aromberg gorilla ?

    2) What i am confused with are this models

    Superfan X1, ATOMBERG GORILLA, HAVELLS SS-390, CG AURA

    3) Kindly suggest me one and please tell why you suggested that ! Money not the issue in this hot summer i need cool breeze :)

    Regards

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Hi Bilal,

      Here is my response:

      1) Major difference between Superfan and Atomberg is the electricity consumption. Atomberg has same output for less electricity consumption (28 watts as compared to 35 watts). But Atomberg is a newer company while Superfan is still a few years older.

      2) If you need AIR AIR AIR then Havells SS-390 would have the highest air delivery. So I would say go for HAVELLS SS-390.

    • Bilal Inamdar

      :)
      Thx for the suggestion..
      Last thing….

      how about atomberg/superfan vs Havells ss-390 ? what am i losing and what am i gaining

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      HI Bilal,

      If I have to analyze electricity consumption of appliances in a typical household in India, the top contributors are:

      1) Air Conditioners
      2) Ceiling Fans
      3) Geysers/Water Heaters
      4) Refrigerators
      …. and then rest of the appliances.

      When I tell people that Ceiling Fans cumulatively are second highest contributor to their electricity bills, people get surprised. And that is why I feel that energy efficiency is very important for ceiling fans (which is mostly ignored).

      To give you an idea, A refrigerator may consume just 3 units a day (even for big refrigerators). But A ceiling fan which is 75 watts if run for 10 hours consumes 0.75 units. And if you have 5 of them, then you are talking about 5 x 0.75 = 3.75 units a day (for all 5 fans). Also usage of 10 hours is on lower side, as fans in bedrooms and living rooms are used more.

      Now people worry about refrigerators as they cost about Rs20K-30K ….. but they do not worry about fans as they cost just Rs 5-10K ….. but the impact of saving electricity at little cost is extremely high in case of ceiling fans (more bang for the buck as compared to refrigerator).

      Now coming to the difference:

      1) Havells is a big big brand and you will never have issues with getting service from such brand. The fan you have listed has 235 CMM air delivery which is marginally better than atomberg or superfan.

      2) But Superfan or Atomberg are highly energy efficient (50-70% as compared to regular fans and even SS-390). Atomberg is a 28W fan and Superfan 35W. Havells model is 65 Watts.

      Superfan and Atomberg are new companies started by IITians who are trying their best to get energy efficiency in fans become a factor. But then they are new companies, having their own set of challenges. Superfan is now almost 4 years old and doing well. But still not as big as Havells. But I still believe that they are doing a great job.

    • Bilal Inamdar

      Thx for replying in detail. I am really fan of your website. Already been to the led post.
      I love when some one give this kind of detail.
      I got to know that i can go with either but the indian mindset will push me to havells and tech thinking will push tu atomberg. Never mind i will try to select one. Once again thank you very much for the detailed reply. I hope that Superfan and atomberg will give big competition to big comp in near future.

  • Sri

    Hi Abhishek. While searching for new electrical items which have efficiency, less operation cost, save electricity as well which have to be installed at my home, I came across your blog. You have covered all the relevant sections a buyer could be looking for with sufficient research and details. Thanks for writing such a site, maintaining and answering the queries as well.

    After reading your article about Ceiling Fans, superfan and gorilla fans looks promising, the feedback I have read in e-retailer sites are bit scary. Few customers are facing noise and ticking related issues, some guys are finding difficult to claim their warranty, some have concerns about the look and finish of the products, etc. The prices are high and these fans are not available for look and feel from local electrical shops.

    So I wanted to go with well known brands and finalized Havell’ s ES50(http://www.havells.com/content/havells/en/consumer/fans/ceiling-fans/energy-saving-fans/energy-saving/es-50.html) and Orient EcoTech (http://www.orientelectric.com/fan/ceiling-fans/ecotech).

    ES 50 has 50W consumption, 350 as RPM and 215 as Air delivery value.
    Orient Ecotech has 32W consumption, 320 RPM and 220 as Air delivery value.

    I am sharing the feedback I have received from the sales representative while discussing about these Fans.

    1. EcoTech model has remote sensing related complaints from his buyers so he is not recommending me that.
    2. 5 start rated Fans will be running at lower RPM than the normal fans (which apparently are) hence the air delivery will be less so the power consumption. If the user runs a normal Fan (no star rated fan with the RPM more than 350) at the speed of 3 in the regulator, it will provide the same air delivery as of 5 star rated fans and will consume same power as of the 5 star. So why you are wasting and buying an expensive fan which is not going to provide sufficient air delivery.
    3. The copper thickness of some of the CG Fans are of 8 where as other fans use the size of 7 or 6 only. So he is recommending me the Highspeed variant of CG Fans.

    Note: My Hall will be of the size 13′ x 18′ and bedroom is 12′ x 11′

    When you find sometime can you share your opinion about the above points? Since I am planning to buy new Fans within 10 days your opinion will definitely help me to choose the right one. Thanks in advance.

      Hi Sri,

      I was in the same situation when I went to buy fans for my house 8 years back. I wanted BEE 5 star rated fans but then the dealers were not ready to sell them saying that they do not give air. At that time I bought regular fans, but then in last 8 years I have experimented with all kinds of star rated fans as well as BLDC super efficient fans. And this is what I have found:

      1) You can get low air delivery fans in both star rated and non star rated fans. Similarly you get good air delivery fans in both star rated and non star rated fans. So all depends on what you buy.

      2) There is no truth to the statement that peak speed of BEE 5 star rated fans is same as that of speed of 3 of non star rated fans. I think air delivery of 220+ is good enough. In fact the max that I have seen for non star rated fans is 230 and I do not think that it is significantly higher than 220. Unless you are someone who needs a high flow of air on you, you will find 220 to be quite comfortable. However BLDC fans do have air delivery of 230 which is comparable to the best that you would get with non star rated fans. In fact if you go for 1400 mm sweep fan, you can even get more than that at lesser power consumption. A 1400 mm sweep fan will also be good for hall.

      3) There are complaints for everything these days. The regulators available for regular fans are quite “non-durable” these days. They fail in a few months and then you will have challenges in speed change (it will get fixed at one speed), and then you will have to change regulators (each of which would cost at least Rs 200). BLDC fans are better as they have remote control. I have used Superfan and Atomberg fan and the remote control quality is decent for superfan and great for Atomberg fan. But then again, I find it a hassle to handle so many remote controls! Changing speed from switch for these fans is a little clumsy. But then you are not stuck with a single speed (you can change it unlike living with a faulty regulator).

      CG is a good brand and if you want to go for a CG BEE 5 star rated Fan then you can look at this one: http://www.amazon.in/gp/product/B00HVW9EYI/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=3626&creative=24822&creativeASIN=B00HVW9EYI&linkCode=as2&tag=bijlbach-21

      Ceiling Fan is the most neglected appliance in a house and people do not understand the impact a ceiling fan can have on electricity bills. At 75 watts, one fan when used for 10 hours consumes 0.75 units. If you have 5 fans running at least for 10 hours each, then you are talking about 3.75 units a day which is more than what a refrigerator would consume or even a geyser would consume. So frankly if you do not have an AC, ceiling fans in your house may be the most electricity consuming appliance.

      There are two problems in ceiling fan market:

      1) People do not want to pay more because they feel that regular fan comes for Rs 1200-1500 then why pay so much more. But they do not realize the benefits of saving electricity on ceiling fans.

      2) Manufacturers initially came up with BEE 5 star rated fans that were cheap because they thought consumers will not be ready to pay … but then for cutting costs, they reduced speeds. When most manufacturers did this, the general perception that went out in the market was that BEE 5 star rated fans do not give air. This resulted in BEE 5 star rated fans getting bad press, and even the ones that were good were not bought by people.

      Frankly, I do not think Superfan has got bad reviews, they consistently get 4 star+ ratings on Amazon. Check this link: http://www.amazon.in/s/ref=as_li_ss_tl?_encoding=UTF8&camp=3626&creative=24822&field-keywords=Superfan&linkCode=ur2&tag=bijlbach-21&url=search-alias%3Dkitchen …. Noise and ticking can come even in regular fans and not every superfan gives problems.

    Great article team. It is super helpful for people of India who wanted to go for a new FAN.

    Q1: Is that True that 4 Blade FANs does not deliver good Air?

    Q2: Can you please advise what will be a good FAN for a living room of size 15 x 11? I have shortlisted
    1. http://www.usha.com/fans/ceiling-fans/decorative/allure-ivory-1200-0
    2. http://www.usha.com/fans/ceiling-fans/decorative/striker-galaxy-corn-silk
    3. http://www.orientelectric.com/fan/ceiling-fans/quadro-ornamental

    Please advise based on your expert /technical view. Thanks in advance.

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Hello Mr Prabhat,

      Here is my response:

      1) I would not agree to that comment that 4 blade fans do not deliver good air. It all depends on the design and you need to look at air delivery value of the fan. One thing that I can say is that a three blade design is optimized for output and electricity consumption. 4 blade fan would need more energy for the same output. Any air delivery value of 220 CMM and above should be good. If you purchase a fan with low air delivery value then you will feel that the air is not good.

      Actually most 4 blade fans are decorative fans and mostly used to create a draft of air along with ACs. Likes of Usha Hunter fans are like that. They also create much less noise.

      2) You can go for a 1200mm sweep fan or even 1400 mm sweep fan for your room. The ones that you have selected are 1200 mm sweep fan (which is the most common size). You can also look at 1400 mm sweep fans if needed. However, amongst the fans that you have listed, I am not able to understand specs of Orient Electric clearly. They use PSPO value which is some additional calculation over Air Delivery value. They factor in the area covered while calculating PSPO. But then it does not help in apples to apples comparison with other brands because industry standard is to use air delivery value.

      Amongst the Usha fans, the striker galary fan looks like a super high speed fan with an RPM of 385 and air delivery value of 240 which is quite high. It will be very airy under it. However, high RPM also increases the likely hood of lot of noise.

      The Allure Ivory fan looks good with RPM of 330 and air delivery of 230 cmm. This is very much similar to any good regular fan in the market of 1200 mm sweep. I think this is a good one as it’s power consumption is also just 60 watts.

      Hello Abhishek, thank you so much for your answer with clear detail. I appreciate your help. I will keep you posted if I come across other questions.

    • Prabhat

      Hello Abhishek, do you know any 4 blade ceiling fan with 1400mm sweep?

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Not really. We mostly look at 1200mm sweep fans as they are most commonly sold in the market.

  • Sarin Kumar

    Firstly, splendid job with helping people like me with their queries. I need some suggestion from you. I’ve split a 10X17 hall into 9X10 and 8X10 using a box partition. I’ve added false ceiling because am on the last floor on top and in Chennai the heat is just unbearable. I am not going to have an AC in the hall. So basically what I am looking for is a fan

    1. That looks neat. I am not in fancy stuff, I just want it to look classic.

    2. That has a good spread because I won’t have an AC there

    3. Something which is not very noisy

    4. I have lot of voltage fluctuation in my area, so will need a fan that can stand this

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Hi Sarin,

      Typical regular fans are high RPM fans that make more noise and also give better air delivery (because they are high RPM). Low noise fans are mostly luxury fans whose objective is mainly to create an air draft to support air conditioners. These are low RPM and are quite silent. So with a fan, you can either have low air delivery and low noise or high air delivery and high noise.

      If you want low noise then Usha Hunter series or Havells luxury series (like yorker, dew, etc) are the options. But they cost above 6K a piece. They have multi blade fans that generate wider air delivery. Some of them even have wooden blad to make them super quite.

      Regular fans are high RPM fans with either 1200mm or 1400mm sweep. A fan with 1400 mm sweep typically covers a larger area, however, the ones that are most readily available are 1200mm sweep fans. If you want a fan to cover a wider area then you can go for 1400 mm sweep fan. If you want something that can easily handle voltage fluctuation then you should go for a BLDC motor fan (Brushless DC motor). The speed of these motors are controlled electronically inside the fan and does not depend much on the variation of voltage (as in regular fans). Thus they can work well even at lower voltages. You can check 1400 mm sweep fans from Superfan ( http://www.superfan.in ). The company is based out of Tamil Nadu and thus I do not think you will have challenges with post sales service as well.

  • Sarbajit Pal

    Please make a list of most power efficient pedestrial fan and wall fans.

  • Sandeep Rao

    Hi Abhishek. Kudos to your venture and your efforts. Perhaps, you may have not noticed, our govt is trying to reduce the consumption of electricity by giving news on led bulbs and so on such that, there will be limited impacts on climate change which is already happening. I did face some issues about home appliances where an electricity consumption became the main concern and so did my friends. Hence I am starting an ecommerce business which i hope you would be interested to collaborate. No investments and no junkies. Do please get in touch with me on my email- [email protected]. Thanks. Cheers

  • Beetle

    Which is the fastest fan with v less noise .? Isn’t fan size 1400mm regularly used for houses ?

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Fan size of 1200mm is the one which is regularly used in the houses. We do not capture noise as a parameter, so I won’t be able to suggest you one with less noise.

    • Beetle

      I live in kerala and it is extremely hot here. U said noise is not a parameter , what do I look at while purchasing a fan? I am looking for a fan which provides maximum coolness in the room.

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Well, I did not say that noise is not a parameter while selecting a fan. What I meant was, we at Bijli Bachao do not capture noise as parameter while collecting data for fans. In fact for most brands, this value itself is not available on their specifications. So I cannot suggest you a fan that makes less noise. All I know is that Usha Hunter series fans make very less noise. But they are low RPM designer fans meant to be used in an Air Conditioned room.

    • Beetle

      I need fan which provides most coolness in room which is not air conditioned

  • neehal mapkar

    Mr. Abhishek jain can you help me by guiding me which energy fan to buy? Havells fusion es or usha technix decorative?
    I am regular reader of bijilibachao blog. And i am very well impressed with is blog..it provides great and useful info..i have learnt a lot of things from you’ll.

    • https://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Hi Neehal,

      I have personally used Havells Fusion and it is extremely easy for me to recommend it. I have not used Usha Technix, but its specs are good.

  • Joy Biswas

    Hi Bizli Bajao & A. Jain, kindly suggest me a celling fan for my 10X18 room (approx)
    criteria: Heavy air flow…..star rating doesnt matter…need superb air delivery while also in low voltage conditions.

    • http://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Try checking Superfan (superfan.in) or Gorrilla Fan by Atomberg Technologies. They are not just energy efficient, but BLDC technology can work even at very low voltages.

    • Joy Biswas

      Hi jain,…thanks!

      But can u specify me any product…

      well as I have shortlisted “Compton Greves Senorita 48″ & Compton Greves Aura”

      What u suggest………..

    • http://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Hello Mr Biswas,

      Crompton Greaves is a good brand. Senorita 48 has low air delivery of 210 cum/min (source http://www.amazon.in/Crompton-Greaves-Senorita-48-inch-Decorative/dp/B00HVW9M4A ) … while Aura has good air delivery of 230 cum/min (source: http://www.amazon.in/Crompton-Greaves-Aura-Premium-Titanium/dp/B00HVW9K1K ) …. so I would say Aura is better.

    • Joy Biswas

      Thanks Mr Jain for making the thing more precise. As I was going though spuerfan options (as u earlier suggested), i found X1 is fulfilling my requirement, though its a bit costlier. What u say?

    • http://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Well if you want to save electricity then Superfan is truly “super”. However, you will have some challenges in getting service. If energy efficiency is not your concern then you may go for the models you had listed.

  • Deepak B J

    Hi, I am planning to buy a fan for my living room (10×10) ,I saw Usha Raphael ceiling fan 1200mm,75watt,380RPM and found it very attractive, can I go for it ,or do you suggest any other ceiling fan under Rs2500..
    Thanks
    Deepak

    • http://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Well we at Bijli Bachao always try to recommend appliances that are energy efficient. Looks are secondary for us, and energy efficiency is primary. Models like Havells ES-50 (50 watts fan) and Crompton Frontier or Usha Technix do have designer variants as well. I would suggest going for them.

  • Kirti Chadha

    My living fans from Usha are around 40 yrs old and still working. I checked the insides and it doesn’t have any power ratings?? Not sure how much power they consume? I think it’s time I change them to havells??

    • http://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      They would be consuming about 100-150 watts. Certainly times to change to an efficient fan.

  • Somitosh

    Hi abhishek & bijlibachao team ,I want to know that what is RPM of Gorolla 1200 MM sweep ceiling fan?

  • manash nandi

    56 inch fan has less RPM and more air delivery rather than 48 inch fan. So if possible, please tell me how it is possible that less ROM provide more air delivery and why we are not using 56 inch fan in 10X10 ft room as air delivery is high.

    • http://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Air Delivery is not just dependent on the RPM. It depends on several factors (like blade size, angle, design, etc). So it is quite possible that 56 inch fan can provide more air with less RPM. You can certainly go for it for a 10×10 room.

    • manash nandi

      I need suggestion that should I buy Sperfan X1 or Superfan V1 and should I buy directly from superfan website or any other on line store.

    • http://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Depends on the size of your room. If room is big then V1 (of 1400 mm sweep would be good). If room is small then 1200 mm would also be fine. If the room is huge enough that 1400 mm sweep is not enough then you may go for two numbers of 1200 mm sweep fan. You can buy it from their website.

  • Shanker

    Please do not purchase HAVELLS Fans even local fans are better. Cheap quality and lot of noise in home. Better go for crompton

  • Sumit V

    Hello.
    I am confused between Havells ES 40 and ES 50 models.
    The distributors are not too keen on selling ES 40 model, citing low efficiency (air power).
    Need it for my house (room size 10 X 12 ft).
    Thanks

    • http://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      ES-40 has air delivery which is slightly on the lower side, but I have personally used ES-50 and it is quite good. I think you can go with ES-50.

    • Sumit V

      Ok. Thanks a lot.

    • http://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Hi Chetan,

      BEE has not started rating 600 mm fan, so manufacturers are not making energy efficient fans in 600 mm category.

  • kart

    Hi,

    One of the ceiling fans in my hall bit the dust after 16 years of operation. mostly 24×7 excluding power cuts or when going out.
    I need to replace it with a good quality fans with good air flow for the hall. I’m thinking of replacing both fans as i don’t know when will the other one bit the dust it has already been serviced once. I think the current ones are polar. Size 48 (not sure if 48 or 42)
    Please suggest me something as robust and sturdy as that which can sustain predominant 24×7 operation. Also it may run on inverter Note. My inverter is not a pure sine wave, So please suggest accordingly. (Inverter usage for fans is a rare case) The main thing is it has to survive the 24×7 operation. So please suggest a robust long lasting one. Thanks :)

    • http://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      48 inch is 1200 mm sweep which is the standard size. Going for a known robust brand like Havells, Crompton or Usha would be a good choice. Going for a Havells ES-40 or ES-50, Crompton Frontier or Usha Technix would be a good choice. They can run on modified sine wave inverters. They are highly energy efficient and can save you quite a lot of electricity.

    • kart

      CG high speed plus?? Worth it? :)

    • http://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      We did get positive feedback about CG in past.

    • kart

      Went for this one. Its good. Windy. But air flow is concentrated. Also a slight tak tak sound every few seconds. (is it normal?) But you learn to ignore it after a while. My previous polar fan had a slightly more distributed focus on the air flow. This one’s more concentrated.

    • http://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      There should not be any tak tak sound. You should check the installation of the fan. Sometimes the installtion is not properly done which results in sound.

    • kart

      I see. My electrician sucks. Gotta get him back. : Will let you know how it goes.

    Of the three models of superfan A1 X1 and V7 which ones makes least noise, I read mixed responses from Amazon user reviews on noise

    • http://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Hi,

      We do not have data on noise for these models. In general higher RPM fans do create more noise. If you really need silent fans then you should go for something like Usha Hunter fans.

    I want to purchase two 1400 MM ceiling fans for my drawing room having space of 23×12. I live at Gurgaon. Superfan V1 is expensive and it comes with remote which I don’t need. Can you suggest me to purchase two 1400 MM ceiling fans with good quality, electricity consumption, after sales service, no noice and very good air delivery. I will be grateful if you please inform me urgently as I have to purchase it in a day or two. Thanks

    • http://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Hi,

      As BEE does not rate 1400mm sweep fans, manufacturers are not focusing on it. In fact there is very less market for 1400mm sweep fan, and in general manufacturers do not put efforts on their energy efficiency. Superfan V1 is the only energy efficient 1400 mm sweep fan that we know of.

  • G10

    Hi Team
    I tried searching for the fans you have mentioned above online. Except for Superfan I was not able to find any. BL30 and CG does not have these fans on any website. Infact, CG does not have maximus on their own website. Can you please help me with links to read more about these fans?

    • http://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      CG Maximus is not for sale in market. I know of a few people who have got it from CG by using their connections. But CG is not selling it. They just got it labeled by BEE. Orient Ecotech is another very efficient BLDC model. However even that is not easily available in the market.

      Here is the problem with ceiling fans: Technology exists to make super efficient fans. Government says that it will give incentives if manufacturers come out with super efficient fans. Manufacturers say that they will make super efficient fans when they get incentives. But neither the chicken nor the egg is happening. Both Govt and Manufacturers are waiting for each other to act. Manufacturers like Versa Drive (Of Superfan) and Orbit Greens (of BL30) or Atomberg (Gorilla Fan) are small indian manufacturers who do not have financial muscle to make market transformation. Superfan and Gorilla Fan are actually quite good in technology and quality, but the companies are small. And with this inaction, the whole super efficient fan initiative is not working out. Bad for consumers as consumers are not demanding for it.

    • Rakesh Nandi

      @ Abhishek you mentioned Orient ECOTECH and Atomberg’s Gorilla how’s it regarding power consumtion? official website of 2 fans are claiming 32 and 28 watt respectively , what’s your take about those?

    • http://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Hi Rakesh,

      We have not yet evaluated Orient Ecotech, but we did get a chance to evaluate Atomberg’s Gorilla fan. Here is the youtube video of our evaluation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qPToGBlb2ns …. the numbers on power consumption are right. The only challenge that is there with BLDC fans is that most electricians do not know how to fix them and thus getting service on them is a challenge. When they work well they are simply awesome as they save a ton of electricity. We have evaluated Superfan, Orbit Greens and Atomberg. We found quality of Superfan and Atomberg quite good.

  • Sajjad Khan

    Sir,
    I need nine pieces of very good quality ceiling fans, and if possible with remote. Would you suggest something which is good value for the money, and consumes less energy also. My budget is a maximum of 3000 per pieces.
    I look forward to receiving your feedback and thanks in advance for your assistance.
    Best Regards,
    Sajjad

    • http://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      Would suggest you to contact manufacturers of Superfan (www.superfan.in). You may try to get a deal on bulk purchase. However I am not sure if they would consider 9 as a bulk.

  • Dipe Chatterjee

    Very, very useful site; I keep referring to it regularly. So, well done guys!
    On the basis of your curated ratings here, I went ahead and bought 2 Super-X1 ceiling fans from Superfan (Versa Drives). Bought them online from Superfan’s site. Shipment ran into some problems (octroi), but the company sorted it out professionally and politely. The fans look really good (I had apprehensions) and airflow is superb – more than the Orient PSPOs these replaced. Build quality is good. Just installed, so won’t be able to comment much on consumption until next bill cycle.
    Thanks Bijli Bachao for your data; wouldn’t have known of Superfan without you guys.

      Hi,

      I have not heard much of brand “Standard”. So cannot comment on it. Havells ES50 or Fusion 50 are really good fans and do give good air. I am someone who would say always buy a BEE 5 star rated fan albeit a good one with decent brand and good air delivery. Many BEE 5 star rated fans have bad air delivery, but it is not the case with all. You should check the CMM (air delivery) value and it should be greater than 220.

    • deven gajjar

      Thank U abhi
      It’s Havells brand ONLY nd model standard ,No SS-50 CMM OF THIS FAN 215 SOshould I buy this or HAVELLS ES ,HAVELLS FUSION

    • http://www.bijlibachao.com Abhishek Jain

      I could not find SS-50 in the list of energy efficient fans by Havells ( http://www.havells.com/Product.aspx?s=252 ). I though you were looking at this one: http://www.amazon.in/Standard-SS-50-1200mm-Ceiling-White/dp/B00O2UWKXY

      I have personally used Havells ES-50 and found it quite comfortable. It was not low at all. You may also look at Crompton Greaves HS Plus fan. It has CMM of 218 and we have got good feedback for it from some of our readers.
