2019-03-15
This article is a complete and extensive comparison of the latest fans from brands including Dyson, Panasonic, Mitsubishi, IRIS OHYAMA, and KDK, helping you decide which model works best for you.
As the humidity and heat of Hong Kong’s summer continue to rise, the need for powerful, efficient fans is at an all-time high. The fan market provides an array of different styles and types, making the purchasing process a difficult one. This article will help guide you in choosing the fan best for you.

Type/Style

Bladeless Fan

The bladeless fan draws in the air from under the fan and feeds it through the hollow ring, providing a cool breeze for everyone in the room. Because there are no blades, the fan is safe to use in the presence of children and prevents dust from building up.

Circulating Fan/Convection Fan

The circulating fan is designed to speed up indoor air circulation in poorly ventilated rooms. It reduces power consumption while producing a large and far-reaching gust that can be used effectively for heating or cooling in all seasons.

Ceiling Fan/Fan Light

Due to its position on the ceiling, ceiling fans are able to save space while remaining large and powerful. Nowadays, ceiling fans have evolved to combine lighting features.

Floor Fan

Floor fans, suitable for large rooms, are the most common type of fan. Its large steering angle allows for air circulation in more places and its adjustable height makes it an effective fan to use. However, large gaps in the blade cover make it dangerous for children that may be near the operating fan.

Vertical Fan/Tower Fan

Although the vertical fan’s angle cannot be adjusted, the tower fan is optimal for users with smaller homes as it takes up minimal space while outputting a powerful gust. The tower fan is rotated by an internal wind wheel which discharges the wind through an optical flow fan.

Wall-mounted Fan

Wall-mounted fans serve the basic functions of a fan with features such as speed control and a timing function without occupying any floor space.

Horn Fan

The horn fan is generally used for industrial and commercial purposes, with large wind and rough workmanship.



Number of Blades

Most fans have an odd number of blades, generally 3 or 5 blades. Avoid purchasing fans with an even number of blades as they are prone to resonance when rotating, causing damage to the fan. The more blades, the more the wind can be cut evenly and softer, but more energy is required.
