Eco Friendly Ceiling Fan
Every Day is EARTH DAY with an Eco FanThe Penbrooke Select 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 7400 CFM of airflow using just 32 watts (with 60" blades). This unprecedented breakthrough in ceiling fan technology far exceeds the standards set for ENERGY STAR Qualification by the Department of Energy (DOE). The Penbrooke Select ECO includes a 6 speed remote control and is available with a variety of blade finishes in 54, 60 and 72 inch sizes. Eco fans are an excellent choice for those who want the best quality and performance as well as those who wish to conserve energy.

How does the Penbrooke Select ECO (DC EcoMotor) in Brushed Steel Compare to the Average Ceiling Fan?
Quality Rating = 5.500000 (average is 3)
Note: CFM and Wind Speed are calculated using standard shaped 72" 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: 3.01 MPH (average is about 3)
A Wind Speed Factor of 3.01 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 Penbrooke Select ECO (DC EcoMotor). 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 = 6689 CFM (average is about 5,000)
6689 CFM is a good amount of airflow and is above average. We highly recommend ceiling fans that move at least this amount of air in order to provide enough wind chill effect to keep you cool. The Penbrooke Select ECO (DC EcoMotor) in Brushed Steel will allow you to raise your thermostat by several degrees, which will help you save additional money on your cooling bills (if you have AC).
Efficiency Rating = 216 CFM/Watt (average is about 86)
An Efficiency Rating of 216 is extremely efficient and considered environmentally friendly by our standards (over 200 CFM/Watt). 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 = 31 Watts (average is about 76)
31 Watts per hour is "Extremely Low", which is fantastic because the Penbrooke Select ECO (DC EcoMotor) in Brushed Steel 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.
