GFC Fan Overview
As we know, the summertime is quite humid and hot in Pakistan and it's not possible for everyone to afford AC so the next best solution is a GFC fan. A three-blade fan can be fixed to the ceiling through wiring and enough support for its weight. They come in many sizes and you can choose according to the space of your room. What is important to remember is that the smaller fans move air which makes the room cooler by at least 3C or 4C.
Advantages of a GFC fan are:
- GFC fans are less expensive compared to other fans and A.C.
- GFC fans consume less energy making it a better economic product and it is a very practical choice.
- GFC fans can reduce room temperature by moving the air in it.
- In rooms with open windows, they can circulate fresh air in the room which could be a nice change.
- They are used in both seasons; summer and winter because in summers the fan moves counter-clockwise pushing cold air downwards. While in winter, you can change the direction of rotation of the fan and make it run clockwise and warm air, as a consequence, is pushed downwards.
- A GFC fan can work with your AC by retaining the temperature-induced by the AC and as a result, you can put your AC on higher number making the use energy limited.
- You can save up to 30% to 40% of your utility bill by installing a GFC fan instead of an AC and you can save almost 15% of your utility bill by setting the AC little higher taking advantage of fan air circulation in the room.
Some disadvantages are also associated with it:
- It can be a bit nosy after using it for some time as the motor gets old it makes a noise while moving the blades and it can be quite irritating.
- It is hard to clean fans and you need to maintain them regularly for them to run perfectly and smoothly without making unnecessary noise.
A GFC fan is a practical and economical choice as it costs less but helps you cope with unbearable temperature during summertime in Pakistan.
