While you can see a lot of innovative features in ceiling fans in the market, pedestal fans seem to be pretty ordinary. But that’s where the truth lies. They ‘seem’ to be ordinary when actually they are not.
Nowadays, some pedestal fans come with features that will not just delight but also surprise you. You just have to find the right one.
Here’re some features that you should look for in a good quality pedestal fan
A very natural question you may ask yourself is- “does a pedestal fan even consume an amount of energy that I should be bothered about?” Well, yes it does. So much so, that if you get a good energy-saving fan that you’ll be using around the year, you’d end up saving around 50% on your electricity bills!
As mentioned above, pedestal fans are not far behind ceiling fans when it comes to innovation. Today, you can find a pedestal fan that comes with remote control with functions like speed control, oscillation control, and timer control.
Think about it, you would want to buy a pedestal fan because you don’t want to fix it in a particular spot, right? It is safe to assume that you will use it in different areas in your home. Though not daily but regularly. So, a lightweight pedestal fan will only make portability easier.
Who would like a fan that often encounters problems, right? You should always look for a pedestal fan that not only has a long life but also comes with a long warranty. For example, the high-tech Atomberg pedestal fans come with a Brushless DC Motor which prevents motor heating and extends fan life. Additionally, they also come with a 2-year on-site warranty.
Since, not all people like the same level of cooling, having variable speeds is a must. Besides, it also makes it convenient to use the fan across seasons. Even particular features, like boost mode (only in Atomberg fans), can prove to be of great use during particular seasons, especially in the summers.
A quick Google search will show you that some pedestal fans are made to blow air only in a particular direction. That’s because a majority of them are only made for commercial purposes when the room sizes are large. For homes, swing feature becomes a must for better air circulation.
So the next time you consider buying a pedestal fan, do consider all the above-mentioned features.
