How does the Craftmade Faraday II in Brushed Polished Nickel Compare to the Average Ceiling Fan?
Quality Rating = 4.000000 (average is 3)
A Quality Rating of 4 is above average, the Craftmade Faraday II in Brushed Polished Nickel ceiling fan will run smooth and quiet and will give you many years of operation with no worries of the motor burning out.
4032 CFM is below average, so don't expect to feel much of a breeze from this fan unless you are are pretty close to 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 Craftmade Faraday II in Brushed Polished Nickel will move enough air for your needs, please give us a call and we will help you make the determination.
Efficiency Rating = 42 CFM/Watt (average is about 86)
An Efficiency Rating of 42 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)
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.
