Electricity Saving Tips For Homes And Offices

Top Ten Ceiling Fans in India by electricity consumption and size in 2017

By on May 5, 2017

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.

Best Brands for Ceiling Fans in India

  • Havells
  • Orient
  • Crompton Greaves
  • Usha
  • Bajaj

These are some of the leading brands for ceiling fans in India. Among these brands you will find some good energy efficient ceiling fans. However, BLDC is the latest and most energy efficient technology available in fans and some good brands that offer BLDC fans include: Orient, Superfan and Atomberg.

The basis of this ranking:

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • We regularly update this list as new models get added in the BEE list of Ceiling Fans.
  • The list below has Air Delivery mentioned in CMM (Cubic Meter Per Minute) and Power Consumption mentioned in Watts.

Sir, please help me with selecting a Pedestal fan for home. My budget should be within ₹2,000- ₹3,000. Give two or more options. Thanks you Mr. Abishek

Abhishek Jain (Mod)

We currently do not have any research on Pedestal fan, so it would be difficult for me to comment.


Dear Sir,
I want to buy a ceiling fan for my bedroom. The dimension are L-10, B-13, H-9 feet. What will be size required.
Also, I am considering - Atomberg - Gorilla. Is the make good and whether the service is good.

Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Atomberg Gorilla would be the best option for you. 1200 mm sweep size would work great.

dibyojyoti saha

3 bedrooms all 12 ft by 11 ft, should i buy 1400mm or 1200mm, please suggest some option in 1400 mm energy saving fans below 3000 range. Gorilla 1400 is 3500 and only available in white.

dibyojyoti saha

thankx for taking time to reply, was thinking about checking if https://www.usha.com/fans/ceiling-fans/energy-saving-fans/technix-decorative-cognac-1200 is available in retail shops if 1200 mm is enough, looks very nice and company claims 45w and mrp in company website is 2100

Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Usha Technix is also a good Fan. You can go for that as well.

Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Dibyojyoti,

Size wise both 1400 mm and 1200 mm can fit. But 1200 should be absolutely fine for your room. You can look at these:

Havells ES50 (Amazon Link: https://amzn.to/2gj9YsZ , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/BAi4STuuuN )
and Crompton HS Plus (Amazon Link: https://amzn.to/2g7fjEt )

Havells ES40 or ES50 should be available in multiple colors.



I am going purchase one fan not much expensive between 1500-2000.. Actually I confused which brand have to purchase pls suggest me.

Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Nithin,

I think Havells ES50 (Amazon Link: https://amzn.to/2gj9YsZ , Flipkart Link: http://fkrt.it/BAi4STuuuN ) and Crompton HS Plus (Amazon Link: https://amzn.to/2g7fjEt ) would be great.


Hello Sir,
Could ou please add review of Tracksun Cream BLDC Ceiling Fan

Abhishek Jain (Mod)

Hi Manish,

They have not provided much information on their website. Difficult to say anything without proper test results and information.


The fan Atomberg - Gorilla is India made or imported

Abhishek Jain (Mod)

It is India made. It is a company by graduates from IIT Bombay.
