In our opinion, the Orient Aeroslim is the perfect fan for the modern Indian home.

Features

The world today is more connected than ever before. Our household appliances, too, are becoming smart and digitally enabled. The Aeroslim has a list of modern and impressive features. The following features impressed us the most.

  • Air delivery – The Aeroslim offers an impressive 240 CMM air delivery. CMM stands for cubic meters per minute. It is the amount of cool air that is displaced by the fan in a minute.
  • Quality and finish – Only high-end car manufacturers and artwork manufacturers rely on Hydrographic painting/PU finish. Your Aeroslim fan is a work of art, not merely a dull ceiling fan. The Aeroslim fan comes in three colors, Champagne Brown (our favorite), Marble white, and pure white.
  • Ease of installation and practical – The Aeroslim ceiling fan uses a ceiling adjustable telescopic mount. This mount is compatible with both modern and traditional ceilings. Telescopic mount helps in adjusting the fan height, making it practical and user friendly.
  • Aerodynamic and slim design – The Aeroslim incorporates a sleek and aerodynamic design making the Aeroslim ceiling fan energy-efficient.
  • Bend and rustproof ABS body – Another critical design element that makes the Aeroslim the best fan in India is its ABS body. ABS stands for Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene is a versatile material that is lightweight and durable. The Aeroslim will be durable and will adorn your ceiling for years to come.
  • Smart IoT with Alexa and Google assistant – The Aeroslim strikes the right balance between being practical and futuristic at the same time. It offers the following high-end features through the Orient smart App.
    • Fan scheduling and Built-in timer functions
    • Reverse rotation, breeze mode, and Turbo mode
    • Scene switching light mode
    • Sleep mode

  • Others – The Areoslim offers the following
    • Sweep – 1200mm
    • Power consumption – 45 Watt
    • RPM – 310 RPM
    • Remote with display

Pros

  • Orient’s Aeroslim is the only fan that strikes the perfect balance between features, design, durability, energy-efficiency, and practicality.
  • It is the ideal fan for the modern Indian home.
  • While the initial cost is high, with energy savings, combined with durability and after-sales service, we believe this will be cost-effective in the long run.
  • Consistent air delivery: Aeroslim’s motor can operate between 260V and 140V without loss in air delivery.

Cons

  • The high initial cost will deter middle-class homes.
  • First released in late 2018, this is still relatively unproven in Indian homes.
  • Incorporate several smart features and IoT. While the fan is durable, we are not sure about the durability of its electronics.
  • Out of the box, Aeroslim comes with only two years warranty. We feel for a ceiling fan that costs over ₹8000 two years warranty is limited.

Ceiling Fan Buying Guide

Buying guide illustration

Everyone who lives in India knows about a ceiling fan. It is one of the most common household electronic appliances in India. India is the largest producer and consumer of ceiling fans in the world. There are approximately 400+ million ceiling fans in use today.

Despite being one of the most common electronics items in India, only a few consumers understand a ceiling fan. This section of our post will help you understand the basics of a ceiling fan. We want to educate our audience so that you can make the right choice when it comes to choosing your next ceiling fan.

Did you know that Indians were the first to invent a fan? The first fan was a Punkah-type ceiling fan date back to 500 BC. You would have seen these fans in Bollywood movies where a soldier will pull a rope attached to the fan.

Tips for choosing the correct ceiling fan

Ceiling fans come in all shapes and sizes. Hence, it is vital to consider some critical factors while narrowing down a ceiling fan for your home.

Factors such as the room size, height of the ceiling, fan sweep size, BEE ratings, energy-efficiency, features and design, after-sales support, and the warranty period will help you to determine the correct fan for your home.

Consider your room size

Room Size

One of the most frequently asked questions when buying a fan is, “how do I select the correct fan sweep size for my room”? Use the table below as a guideline to determine the correct ceiling fan sweep size for your room.

Blade SpanRoom size
600mm ceiling fans such as Bajaj 600mm maximaup to 75 sq.ft
1200mm ceiling fans such as Crompton Seawindup to 175 sq.ft
1400mm ceiling fans like Atomberg Efficio BLDC Motorup to 350 sq.ft
>1400mm ceiling fans for commercial spacesgreater than 350 sq.ft

Consider the height of your ceiling

Ceiling Height

The height of your roof also plays a crucial role in the amount of air delivered. If the ceiling is too high, then the air displaced by the ceiling fan will be lost before it reaches you.

The best way to install your fan is to ensure that you have more than 10 inches between the fan and your ceiling. This gap ensures that the fan does not touch the ceiling during normal operations.

For optimal air delivery, the ceiling fan should be at least 8 feet from the floor. A ceiling fan installed too far from the floor will result in reduced air throw. You can use a Downrod to adjust the height of the ceiling fan from the floor.

Fan sweep size

Ceiling fan manufacturers label their products with something they call the “fan sweep size or blade sweep.” Blade sweep is the length of the blade. The longer the blade, the more air it displaces.

In India, most ceiling fans fall within any one of the three-blade sweep sizes.

  • Most fans have 1200mm or 48 inches sweep size. 1200mm is the optimal size for most Indian bedrooms and kitchens.
  • Hallways and grand rooms that are larger can use 1400mm or 56 inches blade sweep fans.
  • For smaller rooms, 600mm high-speed ceiling fans are better.

BEE energy ratings

BEE Energy Rating

Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) operates under the Ministry of Power in India. BEE is the regulatory agency responsible for certifying and providing a star rating for home appliances.

The BEE program’s primary objective is to provide consumers with information about energy savings offered by an appliance. In other words, all home appliances apply for BEE rating, based on the energy efficiency of these appliances BEE approves a one-to-five star rating.

Five-star BEE ratings indicate the highest energy-savings, whereas one-star denotes no energy-efficiency.

We at fourbloggers.com want to urge our readers to choose ceiling fans that offer high energy-savings and are four or five-star rated by BEE.

Features and Design

Features and Design

Gone are the days where every fan was white, had three blades, and looked uninteresting. Like all our home appliances, we want our ceiling fans to look sleek and modern. Not only that, we expect our home appliances to be smart and connected.
Ceiling fan manufacturers such as Orient Electric offer ceiling fans that look modern and are smart. In our opinion, Aeroslim is the best ceiling fan in India. It combines intelligent features such as Alexa and Google Assistant integration with sleek and modern looks.

After-sales support and warranty

Support And Warranty

We expect our ceiling fans to last for several years. We’ve had ceiling fans that continue to work even after a decade of daily use. People often fall into the trap of buying a ceiling fan because of its looks and features. While these are vital aspects of a fan ownership experience, it is also critical to consider after-sales support. Superfan, a small company, offers exceptional warranty and after-sales assistance.

We recommend that you look for ceiling fans that offer a longer warranty duration for the price that you pay. For instance, the Aeroslim offers only a two-warranty and costs twice as much as the Superfan’s Super X1 that comes with a five-year warranty.

Must-have Features for ceiling fan in India

Features illustration

We recommend that you look for the below list of features while buying a ceiling fan in India.

  • A ceiling fan should have a solid build. Look for ceiling fans built with a rust-free body or a high end glass-filled ABS body.
  • Choose a ceiling fan that has four-star or higher BEE energy ratings. These fans might cost you little more than the budget ceiling fans; however, they will prove to be cost-effective in the long run.
  • Choose a ceiling fan that has a BLDC motor or a modern inverter motor.
  • Choose a ceiling fan that can operate in wide voltage variations. Choose ceiling fans that can work between 160V to 260V.
  • Faster RPMs mean better air delivery, choose ceiling fans that can operate at higher RPMs.

Nice to have Features for ceiling fan in India

· While contemporary design is essential, it is not a must-have feature.
· A remote controller for a ceiling fan is a nice-to-have feature. In India, we are used to operating our ceiling fans using a switch and a regulator. Remote controllers often get misplaced and lost.
· Smart IoT, Alexa, and Google Assistant integration are nice to have features. If you can afford it, buy it.

Parts of a ceiling fan

The following are the parts of a household ceiling fan.

Motor

Motor

At the heart of any ceiling fan is its motor. Through advancements and innovations in motor design, the modern ceiling fan is both energy-efficient and longlasting. The following are some commonly used motors in contemporary ceiling fans.

  • Inverter motor – Inverter motors work on direct current (DC). Inverter motors offer significant energy savings when compared with the conventional AC motors. The Orient Electric’s Aeroslim uses an energy-efficient inverter motor.
  • BLDC motor – Brushless direct current motor or the BLDC motor is another engineering marvel that offers unmatched energy savings. Superfan Super X1 uses a BLDC motor making it one the most energy-efficient ceiling fans in India. The Super X1 operates at 35W.
  • Conventional motor – Budget fans such as Crompton’s Hill Briz, and Orient’s Apex-FX use this motor. These motors are inexpensive but are high power consuming motors.

Blades

Blades

The modern-day ceiling fans come equipped with aerodynamic blades. Blades come in all shapes and forms. Ceiling fan manufacturers use various materials to make their blades lightweight and durable.

Manufacturers use glass-filled ABS, aluminum, wood, and other lightweight and durable materials to make their ceiling fan blades.

Mount

The mount holds the ceiling fan to the ceiling. There are different types of mounts from a simple J-hook to the more advanced telescopic mounts. Orient Electric’s Aeroslim fan uses a telescopic, height-adjustable mount, whereas a basic ceiling fan such as Crompton’s Hill Briz uses a simple J-hook.

Other components

Other Components

Ceiling fans also have parts such as Rotors and Blade irons, downrods, lamp housing, switch housing, and remote controls.
