Types of electric fans and their applications

Under the influence of today’s high temperature climate, electric fans have become one of the necessary refrigeration equipment in many homes and offices. However, electric fans are not one size fits all, they exist in many types, each type has its own unique characteristics and application scenarios. This article will discuss the different types of fans, including their working principles, advantages and disadvantages, as well as the applicable environment, to help readers better choose the fan that suits their needs.

Traditional desktop electric fan

The traditional desktop electric fan is one of the most common types of electric fan. They usually consist of a large fan and an electric motor, which generates wind power by means of rotation. This type of electric fan can be placed on the ground or on the table, with the characteristics of adjusting wind speed and swing function, suitable for homes, offices, classrooms and other places. Its advantage is that the price is relatively low, easy to operate and maintain, but the disadvantage is that it is noisy and cannot cover a large area.

Wall-mounted electric fan

Wall-mounted electric fans are a space-saving option, they can be fixed to the wall and are often used in tight Spaces or places where the floor needs to be cleaned, such as kitchens or bathrooms. This type of electric fan is usually simple in design, beautiful in appearance, and can be adjusted to meet the ventilation needs of different directions. However, its wind and speed may not be as strong as that of desktop electric fans, and the installation location is limited, requiring wall support.

Large floor fan

Large floor fans typically have larger blades and more powerful electric motors that can provide more powerful wind. They are suitable for environments where large areas need to be covered, such as large conference halls, warehouses or factory floors. This type of electric fan usually has a highly adjustable and multi-speed wind regulation function, but relatively, the price is high, and the volume is large, and is not suitable for placing in a small space.

Tower type electric fan

A tower fan is a vertically designed electric fan that resembles a tower in shape, hence the name. They usually have a unique exterior design and a small footprint, suitable for placing in corners or tight areas. Tower fans usually have multi-functional features, such as wind speed regulation, timer function and remote control operation, and low noise during operation. However, due to the complexity of its structural design, repair and maintenance may be more difficult.

USB small desktop electric fan

A USB small desktop electric fan is a portable fan, usually consisting of a small blade and a USB power interface, which can be powered by connecting to a computer, a mobile power supply, or an outlet. This type of electric fan is suitable for travel or office use, with portability and energy saving characteristics. However, due to its small size, the wind is usually not as strong as large electric fans and is only suitable for personal use or small areas of space.

Intelligent electric fan

With the development of smart home technology, smart electric fans have become a new choice in the market. This type of fan is usually equipped with smart sensors and Wi-Fi connectivity, which can be controlled and monitored remotely through a mobile phone app. Some smart electric fans also have intelligent wind speed adjustment and timing switch functions, as well as compatibility with intelligent assistants such as Alexa or Google Assistant. Despite the higher price of smart electric fans, the convenience and intelligent experience they provide have attracted many consumers.

In general, electric fans as an important refrigeration equipment, there are many types, each type has its own unique characteristics and application scenarios. Choosing the right fan should take into account the use environment, functional requirements, budget and personal preferences. It is hoped that what is described in this article will help readers better understand the different types of electric fans in order to choose the refrigeration solution that best suits their needs.

Then let’s understand how to buy an electric fan?

Looking at the coverage of the electric fan

When we buy, we should care about its amplitude of swing and its elevation Angle, the left and right swing amplitude is about 100 degrees, and the elevation Angle is about 30 degrees, it is very good. Some of the better functional electric fans can also do 120 degrees of swing, 50 degrees of elevation Angle.

The electric fan is judged by whether there is noise

Normally speaking, the size of the noise depends on its motor, but the power of the electric fan’s motor is relatively small, and the noise can be almost ignored. The noise is mainly the noise of the wind, and the more the number of fan blades, the less noise it will make. Because the more blades there are, the less dense the air each blade touches, so the volume of air will be smaller and the sound will be smaller.

Judging by the softness of the wind blown by the electric fan

At present, the electric fan blades on the market have 3 leaves, 5 leaves, 7 leaves and 9 leaves. The more the fan blades, the finer the volume of the air will be cut, so that the wind will be more comfortable to blow on the person.

Looking at the air volume of the electric fan to choose

The air volume of the electric fan is related to two things, one is its power, and the other is the design of the fan blade. The design of the fan blade is the arc and width of the fan blade, these businesses generally will not tell you specifically, so we have to judge from the power when we buy. At present, the electric fan power on the market is mainly concentrated between 30 watts and 60 watts, so the greater the power, the greater the air volume.

Finally, what do you need to pay attention to when using electric fans?

Safe use

Ensure that the electric fan has good grounding, avoid use in flammable and explosive environment, such as abnormal burnt smell, slow speed or hot hand phenomenon during use, should immediately stop use and check maintenance. 678

Child safety education

Teach children not to touch working electric fans in case of injury. 47

Storage precautions

When not in use, the power should be cut off, stored in a dry and ventilated place, avoid squeezing and heavy pressure. 8

Avoiding direct exposure to the body

Direct blowing for a long time may cause physical discomfort, such as a cold or facial paralysis, it is recommended to use a shaking head electric fan or place the electric fan about 2 meters away from the human body to enjoy the soft and even wind.

Paying attention to wind speed and direction

The wind speed should not be too large, it is recommended to control it at 0.2 to 0.5 m/s, and avoid using high wind speed in a well-ventilated environment to prevent colds.

Avoiding prolonged continuous use

The use time should not be too long, it is best to control within two hours, you can blow and stop to reduce the burden on the body.

Regular cleaning and maintenance

Remove dust and dirt from the fan blades regularly, clean with neutral detergent and soft cloth, and avoid using solvents such as gasoline or alcohol to prevent damage to the shell.

The above is about the electric fan related knowledge to share, I hope it can help you.
