Here’s what you should look for when choosing a high velocity fan:
Blade pitch means the angle of the blades of the fan as they move through the air. It is inversely proportional to the airflow a fan produces. That is, the greater the pitch of its blades, the more power the motor of the fans will have to generate to provide high velocity.
Therefore, if you can’t afford to spend extra on a powerful motor, make sure the blade pitch of your fan lies between 10 and 15 degrees. Otherwise, if the blade pitch is greater than 15 degrees, the fan would require a more powerful motor to provide high speed.
It goes without saying that nobody want their fan to aerate one area all the time. Instead, you’d want it to distribute air throughout the room uniformly. That is where adjustable head comes into play. Thanks to this feature, you can aim your fan in a variety of direction, which means you can adjust the airflow exactly where you need it.
Different Speed Settings
After the adjustable head, different speed settings is what you should look for in your high velocity fans. And the reason isn’t only that you can adjust speed. Instead, with different speed settings, you can also adjust the volume level of the fan – with slow speed producing less noise.
Remote Control and Timer
If you don’t want to get up from your sofa every time you want to increase/decrease the speed of your fan, make sure it comes with a remote control. As for timers, they help you save energy by switching the fan off after a certain time period.
Regardless of where you’re going to install your fan – be it in your garage or in a factory – the fan should be relatively quiet, even at its highest speed setting. You can check how much noise a fan produces by looking at its user reviews.
