How does the Matthews Fan Co. Bruna Parede Metal Compare to the Average Ceiling Fan?
Quality Rating = 5 (average is 3)
With a Quality Rating of 5, the Matthews Fan Co. Bruna Parede Metal is among the finest quality ceiling fans made. It will run smooth and quiet without wobbling or making noise and you can let it run 24 hours a day for years on end without any worries of the motor burning out.
Wind Speed Factor: 7.56 MPH (average is about 3)
A Wind Speed Factor of 7.56 MPH gives this fan a Breeze Rating of 5.5 out of 5. This is over the top when it comes to wind speed, so this fan provides about the strongest breeze you can get from a ceiling fan, making the Bruna Parede Metal one of the best fans you can buy to cool you off! Aside from Quality, which accounts for smooth quiet operation and durability, the amount of wind-chill a fan can provide to cool you off is the most important consideration.
Airflow = 1600 CFM (average is about 5,000)
1600 CFM far less than the average ceiling fan, so don't expect to feel much of a breeze from this fan unless you are are directly beneath it. We only recommended the Matthews Fan Co. Bruna Parede Metal for small rooms or areas where very little airflow is needed. This fan may not allow you to raise your thermostat, so do not expect to save much on your cooling bills (if you have AC).
Efficiency Rating = 12 CFM/Watt (average is about 86)
An Efficiency Rating of 12 is below average. 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 = 136 Watts (average is about 76)
136 Watts per hour is higher than average, so the Matthews Fan Co. Bruna Parede Metal costs a little more to operate than other fans. Use the calculator below to estimate just how much it will cost to operate this fan in "Your home".
Wind Speed Factor -vs- Efficiency: Wind Speed is KING! Ceiling fans can save you a lot on your energy bills if you use them properly to reduce your use of central air. Ceiling fans cool you off by creating a wind-chill effect, so the more wind speed a fan generates, the cooler it will make you feel. The cooler your ceiling fan can make you feel, the higher you can raise your AC thermostat to conserve energy without sacrificing your level of comfort. Raising your thermostat by 10 degrees can save you up to 40% on your cooling bills, but you cannot raise your thermostat by 10 degrees if you focus only on ceiling fans that use less energy rather than ones that generate higher wind speed. To put this in perspective: A typical central air system uses about 3500 Watts when it is running, so if a ceiling fan that uses 100 watts allows you to raise your thermostat a couple degrees higher than a more "efficient" fan that uses only 50 watts, the savings you will get by raising your AC therestat a couple degrees higher is far more than the difference of 50 watts between the two fans. With that said, a ceiling fan that uses less watts yet produces higher wind speed is a win-win.
