Bladeless Ceiling Fans-Is there a future in India

The bladeless fan is a fairly new concept that’s gaining popularity in the West. It’s a revolutionary innovation that has taken over the home cooling space by storm. And that is evident from the fact that, every year, an increasing number of homeowners are now switching from conventional fans to bladeless fans.

But despite these fans being so popular in the West, we are yet to go bladeless in India. And that brings us to the question – When is India going to ‘Go Bladeless’?

Though we don’t have an exact answer to that question, we will put across a few facts related to bladeless fans that will compel you to think if your next ceiling fan should be a bladeless one. Let us begin by finding out how a bladeless fan works.

How Bladeless Fans Work

Unlike conventional fans that blow air down, bladeless fans suck air from below and push it outwards, towards the walls, through the slits on the periphery of the fan (as you can see in the above image). This is considered a more efficient way of cooling as it pushes the air to all corners of the room and helps maintain unified temperature. Also, it is claimed that the bladeless fans generate a far more powerful airflow than the conventional fans, as bladeless fans work on the air-multiplying technology that is used in jet engines and turbochargers for generating high airflows.
The question for experts is if this is correct for a tropical country like India , where high quantum of air delivery is required in ceiling fans.

So does it Make Sense to ‘Go Bladeless’?

Well, there are more than a few benefits that bladeless fans offer. Let us go through them one by one.

The first and foremost benefit of bladeless fans is that they provide an even airflow. This is very critical in homes with air conditioning because uniform air distribution helps achieve the desired temperature, faster and this in turn helps save on energy bills. It also helps prevent hot air being trapped in the ceiling and cold air trapped on the floor.

Bladeless fans are ideal for rooms with low ceilings. Usually, people opt for wall fans or pedestal fans for rooms with low ceilings as there’s always a fear of people getting injured by a traditional fan. But bladeless fans being safer, there’s no fear of injury.

The next benefit of going bladeless is that they are noiseless. Unlike conventional fans that produce noise because of the movement of fan blades cutting through the air, bladeless fans don’t make any noise, at all. In fact, you would be surprised to know that conventional fans, even in the best of their shape, make some noise.

Maintenance of fans is another important factor when choosing a fan. The good thing about bladeless ceiling fans is that they do not accumulate dirt and dust as easily as the conventional fans. Also, they are easier to clean.

Bladeless fans are available in several styles and designs. They also come with unique features such as integrated dimmable LED lights to balance the room temperature. These features, however, are present in the new age conventional fans also, and so we will leave it for you to decide.
