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

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 Bijli Bachao Team,
I must appreciate the efforts u are taking, to create and gather such information for awareness.
I want one small ceiling fan (small means length of blade should be less than normal fan), room size 10 * 11 .At one side, there is kid’s bunk bed. so i am taking precaution that blade should not get contact with kid while he climbling/playing when he is on top of the bed.
Please suggest me the most energy efficient fan.I know Super fan does not have product in this range of small ceiling fan.

Thanks in advance Abhishake.

Hello to the wonderful team of “Bijli Bachao”

I am looking for fans … currently having fans bought 45 years back..but now since spare parts are a problem , I need to change.

I have room of 12* 12 feet…
I have a dimmer on switchboard..

I am impressed with your review on Superfan.

(1) which model should I buy? can I go for 1400 mm?
(2) will the switchboard needs to be changed? I have a dimmer (I dont want to change) ? is the fixation easy … asking as features like remote control etc.
(3) how is service? do they send person to fix the fan? & how is their after-sales-service? asking as first time trying to buy electrical appliance online.
(4) the V1, V7 models not having BEE rating .. so will they be good as X1, X7 ?
(5) is there any exchange facility? I would like to avail it. any website which offers exchange of old not-working with superfan?
I would like to dispose off old fans in eco-friendly manner.

PL guide.

with regards,

Thanks for the prompt reply,

I m trying to choose between Crompton Greaves HS Plus 48-inch 53-Watt Power Saver Ceiling Fan (Ivory) & Superfan.

Fans are such necessary items today. For customers from mumbai , would it be more convenient to go for a non-superfan with respect to issues like after-sales ?? … as any fault, we need to wait for days for the new fan to be couriered…. & then get local electrician….

Can you guide me to choose from above two fans? or any other fan ? taking into consideration all apsects.

wih regards

with regards

July 18, 2015

Hello Abhishek,

Have you heard about Orbit Green fans? They are running on 30 watt as claimed by their website. Looks promising.

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
