SuperFans save more money than other energy efficient fans.

A superficial cost comparison may mislead a fan buyer into thinking that ordinary fans are cheaper than SuperFans.
x1_orangeA quick product price comparison shows that ordinary induction motor ceiling fans range in price from Rs 1250 to Rs 1700, and the energy saving Havells ES 50 costs about Rs. 1700, inclusive of regulators. To justify buying a SuperFan with a price range from about Rs. 3420 to Rs. 3700, they have to look at how much money is saved due to the recurring monthly electricity costs. Of course they would also have to keep in mind that a fan that uses less energy does not heat up a room as much as a fan that uses more energy. So you can actually run a SuperFan at a lower speed than you would run any other fan. How many hours would consumer use a ceiling fan in one year and at what speed? This varies naturally from consumer to consumer. But let us assume 10 hours a day at an office and 10 hours a night at home. Let us also assume that most people will run a fan at speed of 3. Just for an example. From the table below you can see that where the cheapest fan uses 50 W, and Havells ES 50 uses 42 W,  the SuperFans use  12 W – 14 W. In one year, i.e,  in 3650 hours: the cheapest fan uses 182.5 Units (KWh) and the SuperFan X1 uses 43.8 Units. That is, one SuperFan X1 will save you Rs 832 in electricity bills in a year, and reduces the electricity generation burden on the government by 139 Units. (I’m assuming Rs 6 per unit, this may vary depend on your city and year.) In 3 years you can recover the differential cost of buying a SuperFan built using B.L.D.C. technology with a nice remote control and blades shaped like flower petals. Thereafter, you pocket your yearly savings and feel good about being less of a burden on your country and fighting global warming. Think about it. And calculate for your own specific situation. May be you can even get some money on your old fan by selling it second hand.
