The ceiling fan in our living room started making noise again. It was almost time for the 15-year-old Crompton fan to retire and deploy a new one to service. After all, repairing the old fan is not quite cost-effective these days as new ones are quite economically priced. Thus began our quest for a new fan.
Based on our personal experience as well as expert opinions, we discuss in this article about the best ceiling fans in India and the important aspects to consider while buying one. Being one of the more power consuming appliances in a typical home, aspects like energy consumption, room size, blade size, budget etc.
1.Crompton Aura 48-inch 74-Watt Decorative High-Speed Ceiling Fan
Backed by the brand value of Crompton, the fan is a no-brainer for all those who crave a stylish looking fan with a super performance. The golden ring on both motor and canopy along with matching trims against the ivory body gives it an unmatched elegant and suave look.
It packs everything that is considered standard in a superior quality fan like the double ball bearing, speed of 360 RPM and air delivery of 230/ CUM/Min.
Using just 74 watts of electricity, it stands reasonably well to voltage fluctuations as well. The blades are broad and aerodynamically designed for above-average air-delivery.
The fan is pretty noiseless in operation. The only weak side is its fragile plastic material which can easily break.
