Best BLDC Ceiling Fan Reviews

BLDC ceiling fans are the new buzz in the power home appliances market. This technology is known to reduce the power consumption up to 50% – amazing isn’t it.

For example – lets imagine two good friendly neighbours Ramesh and Suresh. The fan’s usage in their houses is almost similar both daytime and nigh time. However, Ramesh gets a power bill of Rs. 800 to Rs. 1000. But Suresh gets bill of only Rs. 400 to 500.

Surprised to see such a major difference even if they have similar usage? Because Suresh uses a BLDC fan.

So, now you may be wondering what is a BLDC fan?

A BLDC (brushless direct-current motor) technology is the latest innovation in the ceiling fans which can help in saving almost 50% of power bills. If you are using an inverter and if your old fan runs for around 8 hours for this backup, the new BLDC fan can run up to 16 hours in the same time. – this is actually quite useful at the power cuts.

If you are looking to replace your old and noisy ceiling fans, then BLDC fans can be the right choice.

Here, in this article, we are going to compare the best BLCD ceiling fans by real-time testing them at our own workshop.

The Top Four BLDC Ceiling Fans – we are going to test are shortlisted based on the customer reviews.

How We Tested the Ceiling Fan Models?

To find out the best BLDC ceiling fan, we have three different tests in our research lab. These tests include…

  • Air Flow – In this test, we are going to test the air delivery in the centre below the fan, area adjacent to the centre and at the corners. This shows the efficiency of the fan.
  • Power Efficiency – Here we will test the power consumed by the BLDC ceiling fan at the highest speed. Lesser the consumption, better the choice.
  • Noise Test – No one likes to have a loud and noisy fan. So, we tested these fans to see how much noise they generate at higher fan speed.

Read on to know how these BLDC fans have performed in the tests and which has stood the winner.

In-Depth Review of Each BLCD Ceiling Fan

Before going into the real-time testing, we shall have a quick comparison of all the selected fans in terms of their features.

When we talk about the power consumption, all the fans consume around 28 to 35 watts. If we check the weights of the fans, Atomberg and Superfan weigh around 4Kgs of weight but Havells and Crompton have around 8.7 to 7 Kgs of weight. Also, the build quality of the fans is pretty good.

All these fans come with remote control function in which you can adjust the speed from 1 to 5 settings.

Compared to other remotes, Atomberg comes with additional boost feature through which you can increase the speed of the fan even higher.

In the remote, you will also get the timer function with Atomberg, Crompton and Superfan. But Havells fan doesn’t comes with any timer functionality.

Another additional feature is available in Atomberg remote which is sleep mode which is quite useful when you want to reduce the fan speed every 2 hours after you sleep as weather can sometimes get cooler, especially during morning times.

For Havells and Crompton, you can operate the fan by placing the remote in any direction. however, for Superfan and Atomberg, you have to point it towards the fan to use it.

And finally, when we talk about the price details, Atomberg and Havells cost around Rs. 3300 while the Crompton is available at slightly less price around Rs. 2800 and Superfan is a little bit costlier pricing at Rs. 4000.

Real-Time Testing of BLDC Fans

In these series of tests, we are going to hands-on test all the shortlisted products to find out the winner and loser.

1. Air Flow Test

For performing this test, we have set all the fans at their higher speed settings (speed level 5). And for testing the air delivery for all the fans, we are going to use this digital anemometer which checks the readings in CMM. Higher this value better the air flow.

We are going to check the air flow in 3 main points of the room to find out which fan gives the best air flow across the room. These 3 points are

  • at the centre below the fan
  • just beside the centre
  • the corners of the room

First, we are going to test the Atomberg fan. Once we set the fan speed at level 5, we checked the air flow at the centre, beside and corner of the room.

In this fan, you will get additional boost mode, so we have also checked the air flow with this mode.

After checking that, we have installed the remaining fans (Crompton, Havells and Superfan) and performed the same test respectively in the same places.

When you check the results in the above image, you can see that at speed level 5, Crompton has performed the best followed by the Atomberg and Superfan. However, Havells has performed slightly average compared to others.

But the boost mode of the Atomberg has performed even better than the Crompton.

2. Power

The second test we are going to perform is the power consumption for all the fans at the speed level 5.

power consumtion test

After performing the test, we have observed that Atomberg and Havells consumed 27 watts of power which is actually pretty good. This is followed by Superfan and Crompton which consumed 34. 5 watts of power. This is also good but not as great as the Atomberg and Havells.

3. Noise Test

The next test we performed is the noise test. For that we checked the noise produced by the fans at the speed level of 5 or maximum.

noise test

Here in the above image, you can see all the fans performed great as the noise levels were below 70 decibels. Among them, Atomberg performed slightly better as it produced only 66 decibels of noise. However, there isn’t much different among these fans.

Final Comparisons and Recommendations

After analysis the build quality, features and performing several tests, we are going to compare the products on these factors to find out which model is worth to invest.

final test

Based on the tests, our first recommendation for you would be Atomberg Fan as it performed great in terms of all the factors and tests. It has performed exception in all the tests that are air delivery, power efficiency, and noise test. And moreover, it has some special features as well.

Our second recommendation to you is the Crompton fan as it performed great in air delivery and noise test. And it has performed good in power efficient and special features. And moreover, it is available in budget-friendly price range.

Our third recommendation for you would be the Super fan. It performed great in air delivery and noise test. When it comes power efficiency and special features, it has performed good. Though it has performed similar to Crompton fan, it is a bit expensive for the same features.

Our final recommendation would be Havells as it performed great in noise and power efficiency, it was just good in air delivery and average in terms of special features.

Conclusion

Ceiling fans are the most common appliances in every house hold. With latest innovations, they have gone under upgradation as well. Technologies like BLDC have made them more energy-efficient and durable.

It can hard to narrow down to a single choice while purchasing a product. The same goes with BLDC ceiling fans as well.
