5 Essential Fan Types Every Indian Home Must Have

The average day temperature during the summer season is increasing with each passing year. And in a scenario like this air conditioners are becoming a must for every Indian household. But installing and running an air conditioner in all parts of a home is not an economically viable solution. And therefore, fans are a must in every Indian household. Right from cooling our homes to venting out stale air, fans do it all. Keeping that in mind, in this post, we have listed the five most essential fan types that are a must for every Indian household. Let’s take a look

1. Ceiling Fans

Ceiling fans are one of the most common types of fans that are available in almost every Indian household. The best part about ceiling fans is that besides keeping a home cool, ceiling fans also help accentuate the home decor. In fact, you will be spoilt for choice when choosing a ceiling fan because there’s a whole new range of designer ceiling fans available in the market. 

 

Ceiling fans can be categorized into two main types – low ceiling fans and high ceiling fans. Low ceiling fans are installed in rooms with a maximum ceiling height of 8 feet. And since these fans are installed in rooms with low heighted ceilings, they don’t come with a downrod. On the other hand high ceiling fans are installed in rooms with heights of 9 feet and above. Usually, rooms with a 9 feet ceiling come with a 6″ down rod and as the height of the ceiling increases, the down rod size can be increased accordingly.

2. Pedestal Fans

Pedestal fans are a great value add for every home. They provide instant cooling and the best part is that they can be easily moved from one room to another. Besides being portable, pedestal fans also come with a unique height-adjustment feature that lets the user adjust the height of the fan according to their requirement. Usually, you would see the pedestal fans being used in big halls, patios, passages, and other such areas of a home where installing a ceiling fan is either not an option or not very efficient in terms of air delivery.  

 

If you want, you can also install these fans in outdoor spaces, too. And the good thing is that these fans come with a strong and heavy base which means you don’t have to worry about the fan’s stability when you place them in an outdoor space like a home garden or terrace lawn. 

3. Table Fans

Like they say, do not judge a book by its cover. Similarly, table fans may look small and compact but they offer a powerful air delivery. They are the best option for providing personalized cooling. For example, table fans are mostly used by officer goers and students while working/studying at their office/study desks. Similarly, many homemakers use table fans on a kitchen top while performing the day to day kitchen tasks.  

 

One of the major benefits of a table fan is that it is portable and can easily be moved around. The other benefit is that table fans are space savvy and are ideal for rooms with limited space. Last but most important, table fans from reputable brands like Luminous India are available in a wide range of color options and a super premium finish that add to the beauty of a home’s decor.  

4. Ventilation Fans

Ventilation fans are an inevitable part of a home. That’s because they make a home habitable and hygienic by venting out stale air and allowing in fresh and pure air. The absence of ventilation fans in critical spaces of a home can lead to an increase in humidity which in turn can lead to mold and mildew growth. This is detrimental to the health of your family, too. Excess humidity may even cause rust thereby damaging your belongings. 

 

Usually, ventilation fans are installed in kitchens, bathrooms, utility rooms to improve air quality. Ventilation fans do so by getting rid of the humidity and bad odor that tends to build up with time in these rooms. 

 

5. Wall Fans

Wall fans are usually installed in scenarios wherein the room’s ceiling height is too low to install a ceiling fan. The other scenario is when the room is too big for the ceiling fan to deliver air to all corners of the room. Usually, you would find wall fans installed in big halls or rooms where installing a ceiling fan alone isn’t of much help. Besides this, wall fans are also a viable option for office cabins with limited spaces where you can neither install a ceiling fan, nor install a pedestal fan because of limited space constraints. 

 

And while wall fans lack the portability that pedestal fans offer, the good thing is that they can easily be shifted from one wall to another as their installation procedure is not as complex as that of a ceiling fan. Also, wall fans come with a unique 180 degree oscillation feature that helps it to equally distribute air to all parts of a room.

Luminous is one of the most reputable brands in the home electrical space and they offer a wide range of fans that are not only energy efficient, but also aesthetically pleasing.
