How does the 72" i6 Outdoor Black Compare to the Average Ceiling Fan?
Quality Rating = 5.500000 (average is 3)
Wind Speed Factor: 4.51 MPH (average is about 3)
A Wind Speed Factor of 4.51 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 i6 one of the best fans you can buy to cool you off! Keep in mind that fans with a large blade span like this one may move lots of air when it comes to CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute), but the airflow is spread over a larger area, so the actual concentration of the airflow (wind speed) is usually less than that of normal size fans. For the best wind-chill effect in larger rooms you may want to consider two or more smaller fans (50" to 56") that have a significantly higher wind speed factor. However, if you can only install a single fan, a larger fan like this may be a reasonable compromise. Just don't expect to feel as much breeze as the abnormally high CFM rating leads you to believe. 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 = 13860 CFM (average is about 5,000)
WOW...the 72" i6 Outdoor Black moves a whopping 13860 CFM of air with a Wind Speed of 4.51 MPH. This is a huge amount of air considering the airflow of an average ceiling fan is just 5755 CFM! If you want a fan that can really cool you off, this fan will do a better job than almost any other fan! Fans like this will allow you to raise your thermostat by up to 10 degrees, which can save you as much as 40% on your cooling bills (if you have AC). Some people find that fans like this pay for themselves during the first summer of operation.
Efficiency Rating = 318 CFM/Watt (average is about 86)
An Efficiency Rating of 318 is in the "WOW" range of super efficient making the 72" i6 Outdoor Black one of the most environmentally friendly ceiling fans ever made. 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 = 35 Watts (average is about 76)
35 Watts per hour is "Extremely Low", which is fantastic because the 72" i6 Outdoor Black will cost almost nothing to operate compared to other ceiling 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 thermostat 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.
