Top Ten Ceiling Fans in India by electricity consumption and size in 2015

By on June 27, 2015

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.

need fans for large hall of a mosque with double height ceiling.floor dimension is approx 15 m x 10 m. planning to put 8 rows of fan with 3 nos each in a row.(width wise (10m))Which models are suitable for this need.(need high air flow and considerably low energy consumption)also what will be the sweep??

i have a doubt ?
Wattage {Consumed} = [Voltage * Ampere] / Power factor
hope i am correct.

i bought a superfan X1
now i will share my experience
at various speeds the consumption as follows
Speed – Watts – Voltage – Ampere – Wattage {Consumed}(My Calculation)
1 – 04W – 250V – 0.02A – 05W
2 – 08W – 250V – 0.04A – 10W
3 – 14W – 250V – 0.06A – 15W
4 – 24W – 250V – 0.11A – 27.5W
5 – 35W – 250V – 0.18A – 45W

These are the details from my New EB Meter Readings
only the last column[Wattage {Consumed}] is my calculation from Voltage & Ampere from readings
y so much difference ?
whats wrong with my findings & reading
kindly help

June 22, 2015

how is that possible ?
if u have 10 watts led light with power factor of 0.5 then it will consume 20watts from main unit.
if u multiply Pf with Volt & Amp it will half the wattage.
kindly explain the difference in my finding

the superfan claims 35watts at max speed
but my calculation shows 45Watts without the Power factor.

is it a marketting gimmick as 35Watts or its real consumption from mains is 35W/45W?
kindly provide a better explaination

Respected, Sir.
I want to buy ceiling fans operating on Inverter. Which is the best? Orient Summer Crown Or V GUARD Corona VX

HI BB Team,

Appreciate the great info that is being shared here. I am looking for approx. 40 fans for our building.. I was looking at the energy efficiient fans. I tried researching on Orient Maximus but was unable to find any info. Also… could you give me a direct contact for Superfans.

Thanks & appreciate your help

Hi, Shalini, I am using Orient energy star fans (2) for about a year. It is a good fan. Energy consumption is ~ 45-50 Watt on average at full speed. I do not use regulator. Also, I have one Crompton High Speed plus. It consumes nearly same electricity and air circulation is great. But I found many bad reviews about Crompton’s build quality, so it seems a luck factor. If you r lucky it will give trouble free operation for years. In my neighbourhood friend’s house a Crompton greaves fan has developed tak tak sound within few years.

Hello Team,
I am Jaswinder Singh, Please advise me fan which have high air flow and do not make noise on invertor and have less power consumption, prefered 5 start rated . I am from Delhi so please advise accordingly.

Dear BB team!

You people are doing a great job! Its time for me to go for 5 fans. The older fans are not good enough. I want good looking fans which provide good air delivery and saves money too.

2 fans are for hall and 3 fans for the rooms respectively. There is AC in rooms and hall also but I want a fan which provides good air flow and looks good. Budget is not a problem. If I get a good 5 star fan, I will be very happy.

Thanks Team. I liked the energy star better than summer crown when i saw the piece in person and went ahead with the same(both had same specifications.) I would like to get your thoughts on LED lights too. As mine is a new home, fans are taken care with your advice. I would like to buy 6 Tube lights for hall and rooms and 2 for bathrooms. Any specific brand of LED that i should consider? I was looking at Philips or Havells? Please advice.
