Is using ceiling fans and the air conditioner at the same time cost efficient or a waste of energy?

Unless you are using an electronic air filter that requires a continuous stream of air, you're better off setting your unit's fan on "auto" and using ceiling fans in occupied rooms. Regards, Be-Cool Expert Ceiling fans are definitely not a waste of energy. Ceiling fans use very littl (MORE)

Is using AC and ceiling fans together a good idea?

Answer Absolutely! This way your air circulates better and willcause the air conditioner to work less. Make sure that they yourelectricity can handle so much use on one circuit, otherwise youmay blow that circuit.

Should ceiling fans be used when you're not in the room?

Unless you have something in place that could be damaged by the fan blades, or simply want to conserve energy, as long as it has been installed securely, it's generally safe to leave a room with the ceiling fan still running.

Why does condenser used in ceiling fan?

In a ceiling fan there is an single phase induction motor. Single phase stator produces a non rotating, pulsating magnetic field.The single coil excited by a single phase current produces two counter rotating magnetic field phases, coinciding twice per revolution at 0 degrees and 180 degrees. When (MORE)

How much energy do ceiling fans use?

A ceiling fan is a common house appliance which is attached to the ceiling and uses an electric motor to rotate blades or paddles in a circular motion. Ceiling fans help cool a room by moving air which causes evaporative cooling. Fans range in size from 36 inches to 56 inches using 55 to 100 watts, (MORE)

Why does a ceiling fan move too much?

The fan is un-balanced When you bought the fan, there was a package with it. In that package there was a device that looked like a plastic paper clip. This device is used to clip on to a blade to balance the fan and stop it from wobbling. It is sort of a trial and error method on placement of the cl (MORE)

How much energy does a household electric fan use?

Typical motor and belt efficiencies:. Motor 1kW - 0.4 . Motor 10 kW - 0.87 . Motor 100 kW - 0.92 . Belt 1 kW - 0.78 . Belt 10 kW - 0.88 . Belt 100 kW - 0.93 . Depending on the motors input , we can measure the voltage consumed by a ceiling fan. Normally , household fans consume (MORE)

Why is a capacitor used in ceiling fans?

capacitors are used in the fans and motors to provide the initial turn or ROTATION OF THE ROTOR after the rotation started the capacitor acts as a current path.. It is used to start the fan motor rotating. It is the same with all capacitor start motors no matter what size they are. Its used to imp (MORE)

Does the ceiling fan go counter clockwise for summer use?

For summer use, the airflow should go down directly from the fan to the floor. For winter use it should pull the air from the floor towards the ceiling so it flows across the ceiling and around the room. So as to whether it should be clock-wise or counter clock-wise, that would depend on the angle o (MORE)

Do ceiling fans use less energy?

Of course, you can save even more energy (and money) if you do somecareful planning and tinkering when it comes to using your ceilingfans. Here are some tactics you can try to decrease your energyusage and increase your savings.

How does a ceiling fan operate?

The angle of pitch of the fan blade in relationship to the air it is moving through forces the air to move along the blade angle surface depending on the rotational direction of the blade. To reverse the rotation of the blades there should be a reversing switch on the fan body. Remember in the winte (MORE)

Why capacitor is used in ceiling fan?

Capacitor helps a motor generate a starting torque. once the torque is produced and motor rotates capacitor acts as a current path. technically capacitor creates a phase difference.

What happens if you use synchronous motor in ceiling fans?

Synchronous motors are much more efficient at converting electric power into motion. However, the speed of the motor is controlled by the frequency of the electric supply. So a synchronous motor ceiling fan would be much more efficient, but the speed of the fan would not be controllable, unless freq (MORE)

How many amps does a ceiling fan with lights use?

The fan itself might use 40 Watts, add to that the power used by the lamps (maybe 3*50 Watts) and the sum is just under 200 W when all the lamps are lit. So under one Ampere in the example given.

How difficult is it to install and operate a ceiling fan light kit?

Depending on how comfortable you are with do-it-yourself projects, installing a ceiling fan light can be reasonably easy and operating it once it is installed is just a matter of pulling the cords to either turn on the light or adjust the speed of the fan. If you're not comfortable with do-it-yourse (MORE)

How much are ceiling fans at homedepot?

Home Depot offers a wide range of ceiling fans starting at around $50. There high quality fans reach the price of $650. It all depends on the type of fan that you want.

Do ceiling fans help cut down on your energy bill?

This will depend on what size of fan you are using and how much energy it uses. If you plan to substitute ceiling fans for air conditioning, you will likely be saving some money because air conditioners use an awful lot of energy.

Can a ceiling fan be used instead of a bathroom exhaust fan?

A ceiling fan is used to circulate a specific amount of air around in a room, liken it to creating a breeze within a room for cooling. When the breeze hits the skin evaporation takes place on the skin giving the feeling of being cooler. A bathroom fan is an extractor. It takes a specific volume of (MORE)

Can you use 14-2 wire to operate a ceiling fan using two switches one for the fan the other for the lights?

On these types of installations an electrician would use a threewire cable set from the switch box to the fixture's junction box.At the fixture's junction box both the fan neutral and the lightneutral would be wire nutted together with the incoming neutralfrom the switch boxes. From the three wire, (MORE)

How do you connect ceiling fan used at home to a capacitor?

typically, you don't attach capacitors to ceiling fans ( 120V or 240V ). A capacitor would only be used for one of two reasons. 1. to reduce the noise on the AC in your home or 2. to reduce the spikes to your fan... neither of these make any sense.

Why are ceiling fans used backward in winter?

Because hot air goes up, in a house ask of the hot air is going to accumulate at the ceiling and when the ceiling fans go backward in the winter its to push the hot air down so that hot air is moving around the house keeping us warm in winter.

How can you test the capacitor used in a ceiling fan?

Assuming you don't have a device for testing capacitors, a somewhat useful method of testing a capacitor is: Remove the capacitor from circuit. Using an analog ohm meter (with a needle rather than a digital readout), connect the two leads of the meter to the two leads of the capacitor. You MAY (MORE)

Why is a capacitor use in ceiling fan?

There are two sets of windings in an AC motor. One in the fixedpart of the motor, and another in the rotating part of the motor.The capacitor changes the phase of the AC electricity in one set ofthose windings. The "poles" of the windings try to pull themselvesinto alignment, but that phase differen (MORE)

Why is a wattage limiter used in a ceiling fan?

The federal government now requires that ceiling fan light kits be limited to a maximum of 190 watts. When the light is first turned on, a small current is passed through the bulbs and the wattage limiter, verifying that you have not exceeded the 190 watts.

How much is the cost for installation of a ceiling fan?

The price of installing a ceiling fan depends on several factors, including the amount of work that needs to be done to wire and power the fan. Labor costs vary but could averge a couple hundred dollars, on top of the price of the fan and other parts.
