A Pedestal Fan is an electric oscillating fan supported by an adjustable stand. The stand’s height can be adjusted, and you can detach the stand as well.
Pedestal fans may look similar to table fan, but they have bigger blades and better speed. Even for a large room, Pedestal fan is enough because of the heavy blow of air it provides.
So, this buying guide is for those who are interested in Pedestal fans as we are going to discuss everything about it, and how you can choose the best pedestal fan for your house.
Let’s first look at the factors that you should consider while buying a Pedestal Fan in India.
Below are the top 5 factors on how to select the best pedestal fan in India:
CMM stands for Cubic Meters per Minute. It is the ability of a fan, which converts the electrical energy into the moving air. Higher the CMM more air will move out. As the heat increases in summer, we need a heavy blow of air to feel relieved, and that is why you should consider CMM at the time of buying a Pedestal fan.
The speed of a fan is measured in Rotation Per Minute (RPM). This literally means, how many times the fan wheel rotates per minute. In general, more the RPM, more air will be shot by the fan. Better speed can give a heavy blow of air in all the corners of the room.
At times you might want a device which has the ability to be operated remotely. You might desire to just lay down on the couch and change the fan speed using a remote control.
Though remotely operated fans are not so common in India, you can still look out for the fan that can be operated remotely. This allows you to change the speed, adjust the height, and other things just by using a remote while lying down in the bed.
Another amazing feature which very few fans have is, you can set-up a timer after which, then the fan would automatically turn off.
This is again not a very common feature, but it is good to consider this feature as well. If you get this feature in your favorite fan, that is nothing better than this as you can set the timer usually in the season when in the evening and at night there is hot weather but in the morning, the weather cools down. So, in such case, you can set the timer so that at the time when the temperature cools down, fans goes off.
Finally, there are several other factors that one could observer, like Price & Warranty, make sure that your purchase is the best within your budget, and avoid shopping without warranties.
Further, do consider the noise produced by the fan; a very noisy fan will not be suitable in quiet places like bedrooms. Noisy fans are distracting, and if you use the fan at night while you sleep, the noisy one won’t let you sleep well as well. Even if kids study, they can be distracted by the sound. Therefore, consider the noise factor while buying a Pedestal fan.
Further, do consider features like adjustable height, oscillation, tilt head, etc…
