“Price is what you pay; value is what you get.” This is a very popular quote from one of the world’s most seasoned investors cum philanthropists, Warren Buffet. And the reason we are mentioning it is that very few people understand the difference between price ad value. Most people, when they buy any product or service, focus more on the price and less on the underlying value.
The same is true for smart fan buyers. Considering the large number of smart fan brands that are getting swamped up in the market, many people simply look for a smart fan that is the most inexpensive of all. They assume that all smart fans are the same and so it doesn’t matter which brand they buy. On the contrary, there are some who buy the most expensive smart fan assuming that one with the highest smart fan price would be the best.
That, however, is not a good way to go about buying a smart fan. So to help, in this post, we are listing a few factors that you should consider when you buy a smart fan.
What makes a fan ‘smart’ is its control feature. Unlike standard fans, smart fans can be controlled from wherever one is seated. So more the control options that a smart fan offers, the better it is. As different smart fans come with one or more control options, you must compare them all before you make a buying decision.
We recommend that you check out the Audie by Luminous India as it is one of the few smart fans that can be controlled in three different ways. The first is using a smartphone app that can be downloaded on any android phone. The second way to control the fan is with an IR remote control. And the third way is to control the fan through a voice command assistant, Alexa.
The next factor you need to consider is air delivery. Make sure you buy a fan that comes with high air delivery. The air delivery of a fan is measured in CMM (cubic meter per minute) and it gives us an idea about the volume of air it moves which in turn tells us how effective it is. The air delivery of a fan depends on several factors such as the fan size, motor speed, blade shape, and the number of blades.
This is a no-brainer. The amount of power that a fan consumes is a very important factor when buying a fan. That’s because the energy prices are rising and as fans are one of the most run electrical appliances in any home, it is important that you buy an energy-efficient fan so that you don’t land hefty electric bills. The power of a fan is measured in watts and is usually mentioned in the specifications section.
Last but not least, brand is another important factor that you must keep in mind when looking for a smart fan. It is important because the performance and build quality of the smart fan you buy, the warranty that you get on your smart fan, and the after-sales service that you get (in case the fan break down) will all depend on the brand that you choose. So before you make a buying decision, check out the online reviews of different brands to find out what people have to say about them. And do not compromise on brand even if it means paying a few extra bucks.
