Emerson Prima Ceiling Fan Comparison Review
How does the Emerson Prima Compare to the Average Ceiling Fan?
Quality Rating = 4 (average is 3)
A Quality Rating of 4 is above average, the Emerson Prima ceiling fan will run smooth and quiet and will give you many years of operation with no worries of the motor burning out.
Airflow = 5263 CFM (average is about 5755)
5263 CFM is pretty much average, so don't expect a super strong breeze from this fan. However, most people
are used to average ceiling fans, so if you have never experienced a fan more powerful than this, you may be satisfied with the Emerson Prima.
Efficiency Rating = 89 CFM/Watt (average is about 86)
An Efficiency Rating of 89 is
Efficiency is defined by the EPA as the amount of airflow a fan produces (CFM) divided by the amount of
electricity (Watts) it uses on high speed without any lights on. Efficiency is less important than Airflow because more
CFMs allow you to raise your thermostat higher...which is where you will save the most energy. Efficiency becomes more important if
you expect to operate several ceiling fans at the same time. (see calculator below)
Electrical Usage = 59 Watts (average is about 76)
59 Watts per hour is
well below average, which is excellent because the Emerson Prima will cost less to operate than the average ceiling fan.
Use the calculator below to estimate just how much it will cost to operate this fan in "Your home".
CFM -vs- Efficiency: CFM is KING! It is more important to buy a fan with higher CFMs than it is to buy a fan that uses less electricity. The highest wattage consumed by the most energy guzzling ceiling fan on our website is about 120 watts. So if you input 120 as the fan watts and run our calculator, you will see that it still costs less than 2 cents per hour to operate the most energy guzzling ceiling fan in most states.
You will get more savings with a higher CFM fan than a lower Wattage fan because if your fan moves more air
you will be able to raise your thermostat to a higher degree. Raising your thermostat by 10 degrees can save you up to 40% on your cooling bills. Choosing a less powerful fan because it uses less electricity can be the worst mistake you can make because it will not cool you off enough to allow you to raise your thermostat to a high enough level without becoming uncomfortable. This is why CFM is so much more important to consider than Wattage.
