How does the Vaxel Lighting Protico Compare to the Average Ceiling Fan?
Quality Rating = 4 (average is 3)
A Quality Rating of 4 is above average, the Vaxel Lighting Protico ceiling fan will run smooth and quiet and will give you many years of operation with no worries of the motor burning out.
Wind Speed Factor: 2.41 MPH (average is about 3)
A Wind Speed Factor of 2.41 MPH gives this fan a Breeze Rating of 2 out of 5. This is very light breeze, so don't expect to experience very much cooling effect from the Protico. 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 = 4160 CFM (average is about 5,000)
4160 CFM is below average, so don't expect to feel much of a breeze from this fan unless you are directly beneath it. Fans with this low of a CFM rating will not provide enough breeze for larger rooms. If you are concerned about whether or not the Vaxel Lighting Protico will move enough air for your needs, please give us a call and we will help you make the determination. 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 = 80 CFM/Watt (average is about 86)
An Efficiency Rating of 80 is fairly 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 = 52 Watts (average is about 76)
52 Watts per hour is well below average, which is excellent because the Vaxel Lighting Protico 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".
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.
