A little goes a long way

Let me try and be clear from the beginning that I easily prefer A/C, however on a hot, sweltering afternoon, there’s nothing better than entering a condo or stadium of business with undoubtedly exceptional A/C, but you instantly feel all your worries slip away, and in some ways A/C is a easy technology—one that hasn’t changed significantly for various years—by the joy it confers is out of all proportion to its basic nature, but good A/C remains a cornerstone of new society! And yet, A/C is not very ideal.

It’s incredibly energy-intensive for example.

While a more than one-and-a-half ton central A/C consumes about 3,500 watts power as well as a portable A/C system usually requires between 500 & 1,500 watts, the humble ceiling fan—which can be bigly effective on even the easily hottest & most uncomfortable afternoons—correctly uses between 15 & 100 watts! The ideal figure obviously depends on the size of the ceiling fan & the speed at which it is made. The main lesson of these statistics? However pleasurable & effective new A/C is, an effective ceiling fan can approximate its benefits while using a full 99 percent less power overall. When clients consider what this enormous gap in power usage means for their costs, it’s not at all surprising that the humble ceiling fan remains a popular choice in just about each corner of the world—from Southeast Asia & Africa to the Mediterranean, the Caribbean & the southern United States. There’s also something bigly romantic and noirish about ceiling fans, how various great films featuring a hero (or villain) lying on a bed as a ceiling fan turns slowly above them? In the end, the ceiling fan, which also hasn’t changed much in generations, has a tremendous amount going for it. Once again, while I prefer A/C, I can’t deny the humble ceiling fan’s big charms!
