Electricity Saving Tips For Homes And Offices

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

By on April 24, 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.

SEFan
  • 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.

You must also read our page providing evaluation and comparison of various kinds of fans: Evaluation and comparison of Superfan, a BEE 5 star rated fan and regular fans

We would recommend that you go for a model that is from a brand that is known to you.

    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.

  • Chetan Jariwala

    Plz sent me power saver 600mm celling fan

  • Chetan Jariwala

    I want small fan power saver 600mm

    • 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.

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

    Hi,

    A 180-200 lts single door refrigerator from LG, Samsung or Godrej would be good for you. Using filters:

    Brand: LG, Samsung or Godrej
    Size: 180-200 lts
    Type: DIRECT COOL

    here is what I got from the table above:

  • 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

      Thanks for the info :) Love your site. Nice and Informative. I wish i had discovered this site before i bought my inverter :)

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

      We are glad that the information is helpful to you.

    • 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.

  • dinesh joshi

    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.

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

      Have not heard of it :(

  • ullaskrishnan

    what is the mechanical difference between the 5 star rated ceiling fans and the normal 75w fans??? is the number of coils or poles changes??

  • Anil Gupta

    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.

  • manash nandi

    In Kolkata, Superfan X1 service centre is available or not and what is the noise level than other fan.

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

      Hi Manash,

      I would suggest you to check about it with Superfan’s parent company Versa Drives. You can get the contact details on their website http://www.superfan.in

  • 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

      Above recommend fans has CMM 215 ONLY and U said should be greater than 220 and my recommend fan also CMM IS 215 So finally tell me what should I do nd attached snapshot of u have mentioned product

      Thanks again

    • 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.

  • sarfrazkhalidkazi sarfrazkhali

    HI, Just Query from my side my living hall dimension is 16X 8 foot. What size of fan you recommend for me and i will like to have 5 bee rating fan. Please do help.

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

      You can go for two numbers of 1200 mm fan sweep. You can go for a BEE 5 star rated fan.

    Hi Abhishek,

    Its been quite a long time, actually megh neel People are pioneer in BLDC Motors and I got to know these people are coming up with long life model with efficient motor but not yet came to market. I got their motor for our special application in our industry which needs to work continuously for 24 hours and performance is good in terms of consumption of power and reliability. Used for almost 9 months, I haven’t got any trouble so far. You can reach Mr.Suraj-07708066207 who is heading business development at megh neel.
