What is a fan?

The term fan comes from Latin and means "to produce wind" or "to cool a fan". Fans fulfill this task, regardless of whether they are desk fans, standing fans, tower fans, or other designs.

The fan creates an artificial breeze and provides a welcome cooling effect in summer. In winter, it can prevent heat from accumulating in the room. A few years ago there were only classic shape rotor fans for cooling, today there are new devices with no visible blades.

How does the fan work?

The fans does a great job of cooling not only in summer. Despite the wide variety of fans on the market, all fans use the same functional principle: an electrical device draws in room air, accelerates it, and produces a targeted airflow.

The function of the fan is to provide cooling. However, without additional functions, the fans cannot lower the air temperature in the room . The device only circulates the air and creates a breeze in the room. The fan blows the layer of moisture that surrounds us, warmed and drenched by sweat, away from the skin. The airflow from the fan rotates the air, the skin cools down, we experience the evaporation effect when the moisture evaporates, which is comfortable and refreshing. The process has no influence on room temperature.

Depending on the model, fans generate airflow in different ways, namely:
  1. The rotor fans is a classic variant. Here, the rotating motion of the rotating fan blades creates suction on the back of the device on one side and airflow away from the device on the front on the other. With the exception of some miniature models, the rotor blades are always in a tightly meshed metal or plastic grille. This ensures more security. With multiple fans, the case can be opened for cleaning. The rotation speed can usually be adjusted in several stages.
  2. Tower or column fans are now also one of the classics. The rotor blades are missing on this slim model. In contrast, the air pump and slat construction ensures air movement. Suction is created at the rear, while the tower fan blows air into the room on the other side.
  3. The bladeless fans with air multiplier function is one of the innovations on the market. Not only do they look futuristic, they work really well. Models are not completely without rotors, they are invisible and are located at the base of the fan. At the top of the fan there is a circular slot through which the air sucked in at the bottom of the device exits. The rotor blades generate air pressure, which increases by allowing air to pass through a narrow gap. A slope built into the inner surface of the hollow head directs air in a specific direction, creating rear suction and further improving airflow. This creates what is called the air multiplier effect, which creates wind.

What types of fan are there?

Fan differ mainly in their design. The following versions are available in the market:
  • Tower or column fans: These fans have a very slim design and are usually available in heights between 50 and 100 centimeters. The rotor blades are missing from the tower fan, which makes it a space-saving device. The electrically operated pump sucks in ambient air and blows it on the other side of the fan, creating a constant flow of air. Rotorless air doubling fans with open housings work on the same principle. Most tower fans are very quiet, which is why they are often used in bedrooms. Due to their small space requirements, fans are very popular for living rooms and offices. There are also models in which the wind can be set to increase or decrease.
  • Base fans: They are also called floor fans and are larger than tower fans. Such fans are usually powerful, but often louder than tower fans. These fans can move large amounts of air. Then there are base fans in the classic form with rotor blades and in a new design without wings. The latter variant takes up less space.
  • Desk fans: This fan is smaller than a standing fan. Such fans are available in classic versions and in modern designs without blades. Due to its compact size and design, the table fan can be used flexibly. Some models can be easily affixed to the wall to cool the room.
  • Ceiling fans: Ceiling fans are only installed on the ceiling. This means that this version does not take up any space in the room. Ceiling fans are useful in homes with children or pets because they are out of reach and reduce the risk of accidents.
  • Mini fans: This type of fan is usually available as a battery-operated model and is used both inside and out. Advantages of these models: They can be used flexibly. The disadvantage is very compact dimensions combined with weak performance. When the battery is charged, the device offers up to 6 hours of cooling. The small fan can be charged either through the USB port on the computer or via an adapter in the socket.
  • Floor fans: This type of fan has a similar design to a table fan, but differs from the latter in that it is much larger in size. This means that they can be used in a variety of ways at home, in the office or in the workshop. They are mainly available as classics with rotor blades, the speed and angle of inclination can be flexibly adjusted. Floor fans are often very powerful, so they are perfect for larger rooms.
Pros and cons of fan

Regardless of the fan type, all designs have the same advantages and disadvantages:

  • Provide cooling
  • Can be used flexibly at home, in the office or on a covered patio
  • Has multiple setting options such as airflow strength, oscillation or individual ventilation modes
  • Mostly energy efficient and climate friendly
  • Available in all price ranges
  • Some interfere with the volume
  • Blade fans and ceiling fans are often dust collectors
  • Unlike air conditioners, they don't cool the air
  • Can spread pathogens indoors
What should I pay attention to when buying a fan?

Fan are available in various designs and for different purposes. To find the right device, the following criteria are helpful when buying:
  1. Room size: First and foremost, the size of the room is important to find a suitable device. In an 80 square meter room, the desk fan doesn't help much unless the user sits directly in front of the device. To create cooling throughout the room, a suitable large fan is required. For larger areas that do not have room for a base fan for example due to decoration, a large ceiling fan can be a good choice if the ceiling height is not too high. A fan with a diameter of 30 centimeters is suitable for rooms up to 25 square meters in size. If the room is larger, the device must be at least 40 centimeters high.
  2. Rotor blades or tower fans: Classic fans with rotor blades are usually less expensive than tower fans. However, you need more floor space. The tower fan has a sleek design and can be adjusted in a space-saving manner. Classic blade fans are available with three, four or five blades. The number and size of the wings are critical to performance. The more fan blades, the less power is needed to produce the same wind force.
  3. Airflow adjustment: Most fans can usually be adjusted in several stages. They offer a choice between a light breeze, a light breeze and a gale. Tower buffs often have more than three stages.
  4. Stability: Stability is an important criterion for base fans. After all, the device should not fall. Large budget fan blades can wobble a bit. Devices without rotor blades are usually more stable. It should always be ensured that the fan cannot be turned upside down. For households with small children or pets, a ceiling fan that doesn't take up floor space and doesn't flip is ideal.
  5. Volume: Volume is an important criterion if the fan is to be used in a living room or office. Most manufacturers indicate the volume of their model in decibels in the product description. Since the perception of noise can be very different, it's a good idea to look at various customer reviews of your chosen model before buying.
  6. Safety features: It is important for fans with rotor blades that they have a protective grille. The protective grille can be opened for easy cleaning on most models. Some devices have timers that turn them off completely or slow down your running speed at certain intervals.
  7. Timer and remote control: The mentioned timer is decent, especially at night. This turns off the fan after a user-defined time. A remote control makes use more convenient and is especially useful for ceiling fans.
How much does a fan cost?

Fan are available for purchase in all price ranges. Newer tower fans cost more than classic wing fans. The cheapest models include mini fans, which are often battery operated. However, these small devices, also known as handheld fans, are not capable of cooling a larger area.

Most floor fans are relatively inexpensive. They have the advantage of rotating the air close to the ground. Due to this air circulation, the cooling effect against the floor fan is better. In addition, the tilt angle of the floor fan can be adjusted accordingly, which creates a further cooling effect.

A table fan as a wing fan is also an inexpensive model. They promise quick relief on hot days by being placed around the person.

Floor fans are available in cheap and expensive versions. Performance and properties play a role in price. If you want to buy a base fan with four or five blades, you'll have to dig a little deeper. However, the device is more energy efficient than a three-blade fan.

Cheap fans are readily available with low double-digit numbers. High-end fans with air multiplier technology are commercially available for prices in the mid-three digit range.

Where can I buy a fan?

When looking for a fan, you have a choice between an online shop and an electronics specialist. Online trading offers a very wide range, almost every type of fan is available. Prices are usually lower than in stores and customer reviews will help you choose the right model. You will receive personal advice at a specialist shop and be able to take the fan home immediately. The limited selection may require you to visit several shops.

What are the alternatives to existing fan?

An alternative to fans is air conditioning. An air conditioner cools the air in the room, sometimes manufacturers integrate an air purifier into this air conditioner . An air conditioner causes a number of installation and assembly work. In addition, investment costs for air conditioning systems are in the mid to high triple digit range. Compact desk air conditioners emit cool air, but cannot reduce the air temperature significantly.

Another alternative to a fan is a heat-resisting action. Efficient thermal insulation plays a key role here. The shutters on the windows keep out the warm sunlight on a hot day. The whitewashed walls of the house reflect a lot of light and warmth. Regular ventilation in the cool mornings and evenings can significantly improve the climate in the living room.

Where is the right location for a fan?

As a rule, it makes sense to arrange the fan in such a way that it blows cold air into the room. Usually stands well at an open window or door. When it's too hot outside and there's no way to keep the door open to a cool hallway or hallway, the fan can be positioned so the breeze can feel light on the skin. Depending on the performance of the device, a distance of up to 3 meters is reasonable, otherwise the user can easily catch a cold. If you allow the fan to blow permanently on your face and neck, you run the risk of straining.

What safety measures are appropriate when handling fan?

Classic rotor fans pose a hazard due to the fast rotation of the blades. The wind machine must not run with the housing open or disassembled. Objects must not be pushed through the grating. Be careful, especially in households with children. Bladeless, open fans are safer in this case. Only oscillating or rotating parts of the head may pose a risk to children.


Modern fan manufacturers now offer a variety of additional functional features. Although many fan products look the same, each manufacturer has its own advantages.

Now, the choice is yours. Before buying, consider carefully in terms of function, needs, price, to design. Don't make the wrong choice. Use our tips for choosing the best fan. Hope our article can help!
