BLDC stands for Brush Less Direct Current. In BLDC motors, there is no internal friction hence, they are more efficient. Moreover, BLDC motors generate less heat and have longer life span.
The biggest advantage of BLDC motors is that they have low power consumption. Kühl BLDC fans consume only one third power as compared to traditional induction fans that are based on induction motor technology. A typical induction fan consumes around 80 watts of power whereas a Kühl BLDC fan consumes only 28 watts of power at full speed. This means that there are energy savings of up to 65 percent in Kühl BLDC fans.
Although BLDC fans are more expensive as compared to traditional induction fans, due to their low power consumption BLDC fans pay back the differential cost roughly in 6 to 12 months of use. Please see the below chart for example: -
|Assume usage of fan per day (hours)
|Power consumption - KWh Units per day
|Electricity bill per day at Rs 7/unit**
|Electricity bill per annum
|Saving per annum
Traditional induction fans make very high noise to achieve higher air flow, the fans operate at high RPM which results in chopping/cutting of air. Moreover, induction motors are itself noisy when they operate.
Kühl BLDC fans come with higher number of blades (up to 8) and operate at low RPM to achieve high air flow. Operation at low RPM results less cutting & chopping of air which leads to low noise operation.
Kühl BLDC fans have aerodynamically designed blades which ensure optimum aerodynamics and high air flow in every corner of the room.
Traditional induction fans have simple blades due to which they throw air only below the fan and do not spread it evenly around the room.
Kühl BLDC fans are Wi-fi enabled that helps users control their fans using Kühl mobile application on their Android & IOS phones.
The mobile application supports basic features like controlling Speed, Down Light, Night Light, Timer & Sleep Mode. Some of the advance features like Scheduled On/Off are also supported via mobile application to add ease to your daily life.
Multiple fans can also be controlled using the mobile application. Moreover, control of the fan can be shared amongst different family members which makes it easier to operate the fan anytime and from anywhere.
Kühl BLDC fans are also a voice enabled and can be controlled through Amazon Alexa. They support English, Hindi & Hinglish Languages.
The following Alexa Skills are supported:-
Kühl BLDC fans have Downlight and Night Light feature to beautify the interior décor of your home. The lights can be operated without the fan being used. Moreover, the colour of the downlight can be changed between white, warm white and yellow as per the mood. The colour of the night light is fixed as white.
Kühl BLDC fans (Kühl Prima - A, A2) also work with already installed fan regulators in the houses. This makes it easier for people who don’t want a remote operated fan and are happy with a traditional way of controlling fan speed with a fan regulator.
Most of Kühl BLDC fans are remote operated. In such fans the fan regulator is by passed or set at maximum. Using the remote, the user can control the Speed, Timer and Sleep Mode of the fan. Even the Downlight and Night light can be operated via the remote.
Some models have remote that operates on RF technology, which allows the user to operate the remote without pointing it at the fan.
Some models have remote that works on IR technology. For such fans, the remote needs to be pointed at the fan for operation. However, such fans have dual IR receivers that ensure seamless & error free operation.
All Kühl BLDC fans are certified as 5 stars by Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE). This signifies Kühl commitment towards making high quality fans with unmatched style and highest energy savings. Not only they help you lower your electricity bills but also reduce your carbon footprint and eventually help in protecting our planet.
