The Perfect Bedroom Ceiling Fan
For bedrooms you want a super quiet wobble-free fan that helps you sleep more comfortably on this hot summer nights. Some nights, the slightest breeze brushing your bare skin is all you need, while others require a gail wind force to calm your sweat. This is where the Fanimation Drone delivers like no other fan, having 16 speeds ranging from very low to high. The range of airflow is far greater than your average ceiling fan, which means you can fine tune your level of comfort. The biggest complaint we hear about bedroom ceiling fans is the low speed is not low enough. You will not have that issue with the Drone.
There are other features you will like, such as Fresh Air mode, which modulates the RPM to create a more natural breeze. There's a timer setting so you don't have to wake up at night to turn off your fan. Plus, since the Drone is a Smart Fan, you can control it almost any way you want including voice controls from Alexa and Google, a smart phone app, a hand held remote control or wall control - it even connects to home automation systems. All in all, this is the perfect fan for a bedroom,

How does the 60" Drone 16-Speed Quiet Smart Bedroom Fan Compare to the Average Ceiling Fan?
Quality Rating = 5.000000 (average is 3)
With a Quality Rating of 5, the 60" Drone 16-Speed Quiet Smart Bedroom Fan is among the finest quality ceiling fans made. It will run smooth and quiet without wobbling or making noise and you can let it run 24 hours a day for years on end without any worries of the motor burning out.
Wind Speed Factor: 3.39 MPH (average is about 3)
A Wind Speed Factor of 3.39 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 60" Drone. 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 = 7515 CFM (average is about 5,000)
7515 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 60" Drone 16-Speed Quiet Smart Bedroom Fan 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 = 160 CFM/Watt (average is about 86)
An Efficiency Rating of 160 is very far above 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 = 35 Watts (average is about 76)
35 Watts per hour is "Extremely Low", which is fantastic because the 60" Drone 16-Speed Quiet Smart Bedroom Fan 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.
