With rising electricity cost in Sydney, energy efficiency is Key.
So which fans should you choose?
The new DC technology is still quite new but there are a variety of models available and it is looking very promising in terms of noise and energy efficiency and has a lot of potential for future development.
It depends what you are after, but DC Ceiling fans are definitely the way to go. They will cost you a little extra to buy but you should see that returned with the low running costs. Here are some reasons DC Ceiling fans out weight AC ceiling fans:
Why Choose A Why choose AC?
✅ AC fans are generally cheaper because the DC technology is so new.
✅ AC fans can be used with either a wall control, pull cord or a remote whilst DC fans can only be controlled by a remote control, except in exceptional circumstances.
✅ AC fans are still energy efficient and will use much less electricity than most household appliances, especially air conditioners but not as energy efficient as DC fans.
Why Choose DC?
✅ DC Fans are Quite – No humming noise like AC Ceiling fans from off-peak ripple voltage
✅ DC ceiling fans run up to 75%-80% more efficient than AC
✅ DC Fans produce less heat – if you have a DC ceiling fan on full and you turn it off and place your hand on top the motor gets extremely hot, which adds heat to the room you wish to cool down – contradiction?
✅ DC fans are generally faster to respond to the remote control, have more speed options and have the reverse function on the remote
Here are some typical DC fan stats:
|Speed 1||Speed 2||Speed 3||Speed 4||Speed 5|
The verdict to stay cool this summer choose DC Ceiling fans 🥇
