FAQ

TYPES OF AIR MOVEMENT FANS

 

Air movement fans are commonly used for various purposes, including ventilation, cooling and air circulation. There are different types of air movement fans available, each with it's own specific design and functionality. 

 

Here are a few common types:


Ceiling Fan: A ceiling fan is an electrically powered fan that is mounted on the ceiling of a room or space. It utilizes rotating blades to circulate the air, effectively providing a cooling sensation by increasing the airflow. Unlike air conditioning equipment, ceiling fans do not lower the air temperature or relative humidity. However, they generate a cooling effect by aiding the evaporation of sweat and facilitating heat exchange through convection.


Exhaust Fan: Exhaust fans effectively remove unwanted air and moisture from localized areas, creating space for fresh air to enter from alternate sources like doorways or vents. The extracted air is then directed through a ducting system and expelled outside. Due to the high levels of steam and humidity commonly found in bathrooms, kitchens, and laundries, these fans are predominantly installed in these specific areas.


Pedestal Fan: Pedestal fans are electrically powered oscillating fans that feature one or more blades positioned atop a tall stand. The stands are often adjustable and can be conveniently disassembled into two pieces for storage. These fans come in a range of heights, speeds, and blade lengths, all designed to stand independently. Unlike smaller fan options, they do not require additional support from tables, desks, or shelves.


Wall Fan: A wall-mounted fan distinguishes itself from a ceiling fan by being enclosed within a protective cage, ensuring the blades are shielded from onlookers and minimizing the risk of accidents. Positioned at approximately eye level, these wall fans pivot to circulate air across the room, effectively reaching all corners. On occasion, wall fans can be detached from their mounts and conveniently placed on the floor or a table for effortless adjustment. To regulate the fan's speed and oscillation range, the controls are located either on the side or the top of the unit.


Roof Ventilation: A roof ventilation system plays a crucial role in maintaining a well-balanced and comfortable environment within a home. By establishing a consistent and continuous airflow throughout the roof space, this system actively aids in the removal of excessive heat and moisture that tends to accumulate in the roof area. Through its effective expulsion mechanism, it helps regulate and stabilize temperature and moisture levels, both internally and externally.

 

ARE THERE FANS DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR COMMERCIAL USE?

 

Yes, there are fans designed specifically for commercial use. These commercial-grade fans are built to withstand the demands of industrial and commercial environments, where they may need to run continuously or at high speeds for extended periods. Commercial fans are typically larger, more durable, and have features tailored to specific applications. Here are some types of commercial fans:

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF BLADELESS FANS?

 

Bladeless fans are a breath of fresh air when it comes to cooling. Instead of simply circulating hot air like traditional fans, they efficiently draw in and recirculate air, providing quicker cooling and more even distribution while using less electricity. These fans offer added safety and can save you money on your energy bill, not to mention their sleek appearance.

 

When compared to traditional fans, bladeless fans are typically lighter and more energy-efficient, making them easy to move around as needed. It's worth noting that some modern traditional fans now come with energy-efficient motors, but they still carry the weight of fan blades.

 

What sets bladeless fans apart is their greater speed control, with most offering 5-10 settings, while many traditional fans provide only 3. Plus, bladeless fans often come with timers, making them perfect for overnight use and automatically turning off when you're finished.
