You don’t want to be a bulb, do you? Part II

October 14, 2009

Till now you must be well aware of what a bulb is or what does being a bulb means.

Our earlier post spoke about the various ways to save energy at home and avoid being a bulb. This post will highlight- how fans can help us to save energy.

Do you think all the fans are alike or all of them consume equal amount of energy? The answer is ‘NO’. Other than adding elegance and beauty to your house, some fans can also be energy efficient. These are fans that use less energy as compared to other electrical fans. Whether the climate is cool or hot, fans can result in significant energy and money saving.

Some of you might be aware of the advantages of energy efficient fans, however if you are still using general fans then you might as well be called a “BULB”! This is because you are wasting energy as well as your money and a person who wastes is considered a ‘bulb’.

During hot days, the fans at your home run for 12 hours which consume a lot of energy and you end up paying high electricity bills. If you use energy efficient fans for the same amount of time, then you are sure to save a lot of energy and money.

But how can we conclude whether a fan is energy efficient or not?

There are some companies that manufacture energy efficient electrical appliances. Based on this, their appliances are rated. Are you wondering who rates them? It is the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE). The basic responsibility of this organization is to develop minimum energy performance standards and label design for various equipments and appliances.

Havells is the first company to obtain a 5 star rating for its fan, by BEE. Havells Velocity ES 50 Ceiling fan gives the service value of more than “4” which means Air delivery of more than 200 cu m/min and wattage consumption of less than 50 Watts, whereas generally fans consume 75-80 Watts.


Take a look at the chart to know the advantages of using Havells ES-50:

Havells has one of the largest manufacturing set up with the modern technology, automatic machines as well as a highly competent Research, Development & Design Centre. All the Havells fans are passed through a high precision test chamber.

Ceiling fans must be chosen according to the size of the room. If you use large fan, you will end up wasting energy instead of saving it. On the other hand, if you use very small fan, it won’t cool the room well. Save energy by taking some precautions while using fans. Some of the tips are given below:
• Service your fans on a regular basis so that they work efficiently
• Turn off the fans when not in use
• Get the right size of ceiling fan for your room
• Always keep the fans clean

If we don’t use resources carefully now, then there will be a day when they won’t be available to us. How will we mange to survive then?

These days saving energy must be the most important thing in your list. All of us are aware of the fact that we have limited availability of resources which are on the verge of exhaustion. So why not use as little energy as possible, and in exchange save so many things?

    Just an interesting comment on resources not being available. One must understand that resources will not be available for the affluent people. Since there are no resources for the middle class or the lower middle class or the poor people. So, beware the rich & the famous!
