We all like to be cool in the summertime heat. Sure air conditioning and air conditioners give us a comfort level of coolness in our homes and offices that is great and highly convenient. Yet air ventilation systems from Clean Air Environmental are expensive and costly both to purchase, maintain and keep up and costly to run as well with all their power and electric consumption. You may be comfortable in your abode in air conditioned comfort in summertime yet receive a shock when you receive your electric utility power bill come fall. One other option for cooling are fans – either in living or working quarters or mounted in the roof or attic. Still you have to carefully select your fan type and sizes for your specific needs, comfort and heating and power budgets.
Fans and the need to circulate, move and cool air seem to be as old a need as mankind itself. Although fans the fans that a consumer or a company might purchase for industrial or commercial uses may seem to be a relatively simple machine or sets of machines to put it simply – it is not that simple. Fans themselves have many moving parts – all of which must function properly and integrate with their machine as a whole in order to work as one unit.
When selecting a fan or series of fan units the specific task is to make a choice so that the fan chosen will move the required amount of air against the resistance of the ventilation system on hand. In choosing a fan for your purpose or sets of purposes you should realize that every fan unit is designed to run most efficiently at a particular specific speed against a particular system resistance. Fan speed is measured in revolutions per minute (R.P.M.). If you work to increase a fan systems overall resistance through changes in the work process, by letting a material accumulate in ventilation hoods or duct, or on the fan itself, for no other reason, you can bet and be assured that the fans; air capacity will decline, and drop. Therefore you may have to speed up the fan, perhaps overstepping the motor’ ‘capabilities. Or alternatively you might decide to use, acquire or purchase another fan entirely.
In summarizing it can be said that altogether many, many factors will determine the right, correct as well as specific choice of fan or fan units for ventilation in any given setting or environment. Overall it is best to keep uppermost in your mind that what you want in an overall sense is a fan unit which use the least amount of energy and power to perform the function of moving the most and greatest currents and volume of air and which can hold up reliably under the stress and strain of your projects.
No doubt about it – it is best to be cool and comfortable in the summertime in your home or office. Air conditioners and air conditioning is a wonderful luxury and convenience of our modern times. Yet with fans carefully chosen for your needs you often can be comfortably cool as well – for a lot less expense and outlay.
