How To Save Electricity At Home: Various tricks are adopted to save electricity. But today we are discussing about an interesting fact. We all have fans in our homes. We speed up or slow down its speed according to our need. But, does increasing or slowing down the fan speed have any effect on its power consumption? Today we try to find the answer to this question…
The houses have table and pedestal fans with ceiling. The ceiling fan is controlled by a speed regulator, while table and pedestal fans have inbuilt speed controllers. The question here is that if you decrease the speed do these fans consume less power or do they consume more power if you increase the speed?
Before knowing the answer to this question, understand these facts. Actually, till a few years ago, electrical regulators were used in our homes, but now electric regulators are used everywhere. The electric regulators that were used earlier were cheap. Such regulators acted as a resistor. These regulators used to reduce the voltage supplied to the fan and reduce its speed. In this way, the power consumption was less in the fan but the same amount of power went to the regulator which acted as a resistor. In this way, reducing the fan speed with the old regulator did not have any significant effect on the power saving.
On the other hand, let’s talk about the electronic regulators being used these days. The result of electronic regulator is very good. If you use an electronic regulator in your homes, then your electricity bill will definitely be affected. Through these electronic regulators, you can save up to 30 to 40 percent power between your fan’s top speed and its low speed. That is, fans with electronic regulators consume electricity according to increasing or increasing the speed.
Electricity was wasted in the old electrical regulator
In fact, the homes in which the old electrical regulator is still used, should be replaced with an electronic regulator immediately. Actually, the resistors used in the old electrical regulator used to waste electricity. These resistors used to reduce the supply of voltage to the fan and increase its speed, but there was no change in the amount of power taken from their source. In this, increasing or decreasing the speed of the resistor i.e. the fan had no direct relation with the power consumption.
The energy consumption pattern is determined by the fan speed.
In the new electronic regulator, the energy consumption pattern is determined by the fan speed. With this, the faster you run the fan, the more power it will consume. Similarly, if the fan is running at low speed, it will consume less power.
On average, a fan consumes so much electricity
It is important for you to know how much electricity a fan consumes in a day. These days 60 watt fans are running in the market. If a 60 watt fan runs for 18 hours in a day, it consumes 1080 watts of power. In this way, it consumes a little more electricity than one unit in a day. Well this is talking about a fan.
But on an average there are 4 fans in a middle class Indian family. If you run these four fans in the fastest mode, then you will consume about 5 units of electricity a day. In this, you can save one to one and a half units of electricity every day by controlling the speed.
