How to choose a fan ? Compare and find the best.
You’ll need to carry out a bit of research, think about what your needs are, and work out which fan is right for you.
History of the fan
The history of the fan is far longer and more interesting than you might think. In fact, some basic sort of mechanical fan was first used in India some five hundred years BC. These were not what we think of as a fa n today though, and were made out of wood and bamboo. Some of these mechanical fans were in fact operated by servants, right into the British rule of India in the 19th century. In the late 19th century the first electric powered fans were made, but it wasn’t until steel became readily available that the electric fan as we know it really came into regular use in the nineteen-twenties.
Which type of fan ?
There are two main types of fan that you ought to consider, and this guide will treat them separately so as to provide advice for those wanting each type. The first type is the ceiling fan, which became popular in the 1970s as they are in the then popular Victorian Style. The second type is a standalone fan which can simply be plugged into an electrical socket and used without installation. There are of course other types of fan too, and these will also be considered below.
