How to choose the right floor fans?
Before you buy a fan, you need to familiarize yourself with the concept and parameters of its operation. It is easily transported, does not require installation services, and has an affordable price.
According to the type of working mechanism, fans are divided into axial, radiator and turbine.
- Axial — is a wheel with blades and a motor for rotation. A protective mesh was installed to protect people from contact with the blades.
- Radiator — similar to a snail, it has curved blades into which air enters, after which it is pushed out in all directions.
- Turbine — provides a powerful and continuous flow of air, has no blades and works on the principle of a turbine.
The noise level depends on the power. The quietest will be a fan of a radiator and turbine type. The device can be equipped with a mechanical or electronic control unit. Modern models are sold complete with a remote control or controlled via a smartphone. In terms of efficiency, such fans resemble an air conditioner, but they consume electricity more economically. Models with air humidification function are equipped with a special water tank, which circulates around the room in the form of steam.
When choosing a fan, you should definitely pay attention to the above parameters. The presence of additional functions will only be a plus. For relatively little money, you can pick up a stylish, practical, and most importantly — a powerful device for daily use.Метки: (room), best, fans, floor, from, home, industrial, models, powerful
