The ceiling fans are one of the oldest home appliances, which have been used for several generations together. Before the advent of the air conditioners, the ceilings fans were the only cooling devices available and were present in every household. Even today, every room in the house has a ceiling fan that is powered by electricity.

Fan Features

The electric ceiling fans perform the task of transferring the air from the ceiling to the room below, which displaces the warm air below and cools the entire room. The electric ceiling fan has several features, which are simple yet very important. The electric ceiling fan works with the help of a motor installed in the fan and is based on the principle of the mechanism of oscillation. Some of the prominent features of the electric ceiling fans are as follows:

1) Fan Blades: The fan blades are the most important parts of the ceiling fans as they provide the breeze by rotating. Usually, the electric ceiling fans consist of four blades that have an elongated rectangular shape and are attached to the body of the fan with the help of screws that are inserted through the holes that are already present on them. Some of the fans also have five or six blades. These blades are made up of metals like aluminum, steel, brass or bronze or different types of wood.
2) Axle: The axle is yet another major part of an electric ceiling fan and runs through both ends of the motor. The axle is attached to the blades at one side and on the other side it is attached to the oscillator gearbox.
3) Electric Motor: The electric motors power the ceiling fans by converting the electrical energy into mechanical energy. The ceiling fans are attached to the motor at its output point without any belts or fixing gear. The motor is strategically positioned at the center of the fan and extends beyond it.
These are some of the most important and the major features of the electric ceiling fans.

Operating a Ceiling Fan

The electric ceiling fan is operated with the help of a controlling board that is fixed on the walls. The board consists of a speed controlling attachment that helps in adjusting the speed of the fan. The board also consists of direction adjusting devices that help to determine the direction of the rotation for the blades of the fan. The blades can move clockwise or anti-clockwise. These are the fundamental operational aspects of an electric ceiling fan, which have become an integral part of every household.
