Eco Friendly Ceiling Fan
Every Day is EARTH DAY with an Eco FanThe Carrera Grand ECO incorporates a super efficient DC motor that uses up to 3 times LESS electricity than a typical ceiling fan, making it among the Greenest Ceiling Fans on the Planet. This amazing fan produces a significant breeze while using just 22 watts of electricity. This unprecedented breakthrough in ceiling fan technology far exceeds the standards set for ENERGY STAR Qualification by the Department of Energy (DOE). The Carrera Grand ECO is a customizable ceiling fan available with a variety of blade finishes in 54", 60" and 72" sizes. You can also choose from a variety of light fixture options or purchase the fan without lights depending on your needs. Eco fans are an excellent choice for those who want the best quality and performance as well as those who wish to conserve energy. Damp rated when used with B77, B78 or B79 series blades only.
Ceiling fans that have earned the ENERGY STAR feature the latest in energy-efficiency technology including a more energy-efficient motor and improved blade design. Fans with built-in lighting include ENERGY STAR qualified bulbs that last up to 10 times longer and use 2/3 less energy than incandescent bulbs-saving energy, money, and time replacing light bulbs.

How does the 54" Carrera Grande ECO (DC EcoMotor) in Oil Rubbed Bronze Compare to the Average Ceiling Fan?
Quality Rating = 5.500000 (average is 3)
Note: CFM and Wind Speed are calculated using standard shaped 54" blades. The size and shape of the blades will alter the performance dramatically. For example: Palm style and carved wood leaf shaped blades can reduce performance by as much as 50%!
Wind Speed Factor: 3.57 MPH (average is about 3)
A Wind Speed Factor of 3.57 MPH gives this fan a Breeze Rating of 4 out of 5. This is above average when it comes to ceiling fans, so you can expect to feel a decent amount of cooling breeze from the 54" Carrera Grande ECO (DC EcoMotor). 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 = 7929 CFM (average is about 5,000)
7929 CFM is a lot of airflow and is far above average, which is very good news if you want a ceiling fan that can really cool you off. 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. By doing so, it is possible that the 54" Carrera Grande ECO (DC EcoMotor) in Oil Rubbed Bronze may pay for itself during the first year of operation depending on the normal cost to run your air conditioning (if you have AC).
Efficiency Rating = 273 CFM/Watt (average is about 86)
An Efficiency Rating of 273 is in the "WOW" range of super efficient making the 54" Carrera Grande ECO (DC EcoMotor) in Oil Rubbed Bronze 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 = 29 Watts (average is about 76)
29 Watts per hour is "Extremely Low", which is fantastic because the 54" Carrera Grande ECO (DC EcoMotor) in Oil Rubbed Bronze 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.
