Modern Fan Energy Information
Ceiling fan manufacturers are required by federal law to publish the energy
information for their products in a standardized format, including watts used,
cubic feet of air moved per minute (CFM) and a resulting CFM per watt efficiency
value. The test results are gathered in a controlled environment and are
intended to help consumers and specifiers compare products. However, keep in
mind that in a real world installation, there are a number of additional factors
that will affect air movement patterns and volume.
All Modern Fan products move air in the upper range of fans on the market. While
emerging DC motor fans (like our DC Slim) are reaching new levels of efficiency,
it's important to remember that all ceiling fans are inherently efficient and
use very little electricity to begin with. Choosing fluorescent lamps instead of
incandescent (tungsten) or halogen equivalents represents the greatest
opportunity for energy savings.
