# Fan Wattage, Efficiency, And Cost To Run (Fan Types Compared)

A person who wants to buy a fan wants to know about the wattage, efficiency, and cost to run a fan. so this article is all about the fan wattage, the efficiency of a fan, what it cost to run a fan, and the comparison of the fan with other types of fans.

## What is the wattage of a fan?

On average the fan wattage is 39.3w and the lowest fan wattage of 6.9 watts. But the most common fan wattage is 33 watts.

The amount of wats that a fan consumes depends upon various factors like the size of the fan and the type of fan. The following table describes the fan wattage of different types of fans.

So the ceiling fan has the lowest fan wattage then it is the table fan. And box fans have the highest average wattage.

## What is the electricity consumption of a fan?

A kWh is the measurement done for measuring electricity it can also be called a unit of electricity which means the number of kilowatts the electricity is consumed over a period of time.

The following table explains the electricity consumption by different types of fans in one hour.

### The electricity used by the fan over various durations:

The electricity used on average by a fan is 0.0393 kWh per hour, 0.3144 kWh per night, 0.0943 kWh per week when it is run for 24 hours, and 28.3 kWh per month when it is used for 24 hours.

The following table explains the electricity consumption of a running fan used at various durations:

## What is the cost to run a Fan?

The cost of running a fan on average is up to 0.0059 cents per hour, 0.047 cents when a fan is run over a night, 14 cents per day, \$0 0.99 per week, and \$4.25 per month when it is used 24/7 hours.

The following table explains the cost of a running fan of different types on various time duration but using 15 cents per kWh.

## What is fan CFM and efficiency?

A CFM of a fan refers to the amount of air in cubic feet per minute of the fan that can move in it. A fan who is having higher CFM will be able to move more in the air thus it will be effective to cool the temperature. And the amount of air a fan is able to move for each watt that it consumes is the energy efficiency indicator. The Following are the CFM result:

• The fan having the highest CFM per vote is the ceiling fan
• At the second position is the box fan with 1750 CFM for watts and having the higher average voltage.
• The table or standing fan has a CFM per watt of 1672 which is lower than the average box band CFM.

## Conclusion:

In the end, it can be concluded that ceiling fans are the most efficient fan type, and they can move fast air per watt. After the ceiling fan, box fans are the most efficient fan type preferable for personal cooling, and the average cost spent on a running fan is approximately \$0.0059 per hour.
