Doing some research before buying a ceiling fan is nearly as much necessary as buying a phone. This appliance would run for you 24×7 without giving you any headache if you make the right choice in selecting the right one, and it would last you for many years. And when I talk about appliances that may last long, I must mention Orient Electric here as not many people know that they’re the biggest manufacturer and exporter of ceiling fans in India. Not only do their products last for years, but I am also using two of them myself in different rooms and have faced no issues so far since the last 3 years, and I have reviewed their fans before as well. However, as the title suggests, this article is not about a product review, but about the best fans from their range under Rs 2500.

Orient Electric recently launched new fans meant for Tier 3 & 4 markets and semi-urban parts of the country; these fans not only are ‘value for money fans’ but also comes with strong and durable motor, superior paint finish, and stylish designs. These fans are also available in different sweep sizes (for different room sizes), and color options suit the consumers’ different needs/preferences.

These ceiling fans would be a great addition to the interior of the house. They are designed, keeping in mind the needs of consumers from smaller cities. This includes not just the looks but the specs as well like speed, strong motor, air delivery, etc. Like I said before, these new models are high-speed ‘value for money fans,’ which comes with a strong and durable motor, higher RPM, superior paint finish, and stylish designs.

Each of these models is a winner in its own way, depending upon the model you choose as per the budget limits. This buying guide below would help you also in deciding which fan would be best for you:

Things To Consider Before Buying A Ceiling Fan

There are quite a few things that you should consider before you buy a ceiling fan. It doesn’t matter how a particular fan is the most energy-efficient or how good the air-throw is. If a ceiling fan performs poorly in even one of the aspects, then buying that model may not be a wise decision for an average consumer. Here are a few things that you should always consider before buying a ceiling fan:

Brand

Finalizing the brand should be the first part in the process of selecting a ceiling fan. Brand matters, in the case of ceiling fans too. Because with a good brand, a brand with an excellent image among the consumers (like Orient Electric) assures them of the best quality product. Purchasing products from such brands ensure that you’re getting a product free from any faults and were duly tested during the manufacturing process. A reputed brand would also offer an excellent after-sales service in case of a mishap. This is why it always makes sense to buy appliances from old established brands!

Warranty

Most brands selling ceiling fans offer two years of warranty these days, while there are some who offer only one year of it. A longer warranty period is essential because, during India’s scorching summer, most households have fans running 24×7. So, if you purchase a ceiling fan and anything goes wrong, the warranty is there for free repair or even replacement of your defective product.

Motor

The motor in the ceiling fan is behind powering those blades to generate a flow of air. If the motor isn’t that great, there are chances of a breakdown. A good motor should generate an optimal level of rotational capacity to the blades ensuring good airflow. However, that’s not the only criteria. A good motor should not be noisy and unstable, which degrades the user experience and uniform airflow. Here in the case of Orient Electric, I personally never faced any issues related to the motor; in fact, I haven’t even got the fan serviced since I bought it 3 years back.

Blades

The bigger the blades, the better the airflow, but only when they have the bend at proper angles. Some consumers tend to position themselves towards those ceiling fans which come with not three but four blades. But these are not the only factors one should consider. While compact ceiling fans with smaller blades are good for centered airflow, it’s the blades’ angle that has the most impact on airflow rather than the shape and size of the blades. Blades angled between 13-14 degrees are the best, as per experts.

The fan’s diameter is also important- The bigger the room, the bigger the fan’s diameter should be. Here is a table to help you with the choice of sweep length against the size of the room:

Fan Size (Sweep length in mm)Room Size (in sq metres)
900<7
105007-10
120010-12
140012-14
>1400greater than 14 sq meters or Use 2 

Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency is very important these days, especially for consumers in a country like India. Ceiling fans usually consume quite a lot of power, but with better technologies, ceiling fans are also getting more and more energy-efficient like many other household appliances and electronics.

However, consumers should do the math and shouldn’t just bet everything on energy efficiency. Sometimes, due to better energy efficiency, speed, and air delivery of some products would be less. And even voltage fluctuations too can cause unexpected issues. Therefore, Advanced PSPO technology can be the right choice as it can handle the voltage fluctuations ensuring sustained airflow, and will keep functioning for years without any issue.

Looks

While ceiling fans are an integral part of every Indian household, not everyone cares about their looks; however, this has changed. Consumers now demand good looking ceiling fans for their homes to match with interiors, and brands also offer many options in terms of color and finish. There is the traditional single tone, dual-tone, or even multicolored designs as well. Consumers now have a wide range of options to choose from so that the ceiling fan provides an aesthetic look to their house!

Installation Cost

While some ceiling fans are easy to install, and many people can install them easily without any professional help, some fans are quite complex to assemble and install. It is always better to go with a fan that can be installed easily or at a nominal cost.

Ceiling Fan Maintenance Guide

Though ceiling fans aren’t very delicate, proper maintenance is a must, not just for the fan but also for your well-being. Follow these steps and perform these tasks whenever required.

  • Always clean the blades of the fan. This is very essential as dust is one of the biggest enemies of any electrical appliance or electronics in general. Soak a cloth in soap water and use it to clean the blades. You can also use a blush to reach more remote parts, or you can suck out the dust from the motor using a vacuum.  
  • Some ceiling fans come with an oil hole. Make sure that you are lubricating the ball bearings inside by pouring oil through the hole on top. This is essential and is a compulsory step, especially when the fan starts making even the slightest noise.
  • Always ensuring that all the parts of the fan are attached tightly by screws and nuts.
  • Ensure that the canopies are correctly fit; otherwise, when the fan is running, you may see that it is making sounds due to movement.
  • Blades of any ceiling fan may look alike, but it is strongly advised not to interchange blades of the ceiling fans as this may cause disbalance and cause inefficiency in operation.

FAQs

  1. How much does it cost to operate a ceiling fan?

    An average ceiling fan will consume just as much energy as a regular lightbulb consumes. However, since ceiling fans are used only during the summer season, they are pretty inexpensive in terms of yearly cost compared to large appliances like refrigerators or room heaters.

  2. How much air does a ceiling fan move?

    The air movement of a ceiling fan is measured in CFM that is cubic feet per meter. The higher the CFM, the more will be the air movement. All these fans mentioned above have their air movement rate between 195 and 230 CFM.

  3. Do the blades of ceiling fans get rust?

    Theoretically, yes. Blades of ceiling fans are made out of metal, and hence they should rust. But this issue is with modern techniques like coating the blades with anti-rust paint that prevents rusting. Many fans also offer Aluminum blades (like Summer Breeze Pro), so there is no chance of rust at all.

  4. Do ceiling fans come with a warranty?

    Like most other electrical appliances, ceiling fans come with a minimum one year warranty. However, Orient Electric provides up to two years of warranty for its vast range of ceiling fans.

  5. Can I install a ceiling fan myself?

    In many cases, it is quite easy to assemble and install a ceiling fan yourself as you just need to fix the blades with some screws and attach the fan to the ceiling. However, if you are not familiar with any particular fan's assembly, it's best to call the service guy from the company or a local electrician and get it installed by them.
