However, people are missing out on one of the basic household appliances, especially in India, that can help us save some good bucks on monthly utility bills – a fan. A ceiling fan is present in almost every Indian household and is operational almost 24×7 if someone is present in the room. In a tropical country like India where energy-hungry common appliances are used continuously round the year, super-efficient ceiling fans can have an enormous potential for energy savings for consumers seeking smart solutions. Imagine if everyone switches to energy efficient fans, just try and calculate the amount of energy we would save.
