Standing fansWhat is a pedestal fan / parking fan?
A KlimaLex floor standing fan is a traditional fan that attaches to an extendable pole. The pedestal fan can be set to move up or down for maximum comfort. In the corner of a room or other convenient location, a floor-standing fan can affect the cooling of a larger area more than a normal table fan. A parking fan usually has three wind speeds. The head of the fan can swing 180 ° or stay in one direction. The device can also be tilted up or down.

A floor-standing fan can be supplied with a remote control that makes setting easy. Some models also have a programmable pad that allows the fan to start or stop for hours. This is a great way to keep the house cool for pets while you are at work. If you use the fan in the house, look for a floor fan that is quiet. Remember that the most powerful fans can often be very loud. The shape of some fan blades causes more wind noise than others. Read customer reviews to see which floor-standing fans are quiet.
How do standing fans work?
Stand fans are also considered as oscillating fans. They have an adjustable metal stand so that the head of the fan can be positioned anywhere. The head is also connected to the pedestal on a platform that can be angled up or down. Internally, the fan head mainly consists of an AC electric motor with a secondary output attached to a gearbox at the base of the platform.
Single Speed Fans (One stage)
Single-stage auxiliary fans primarily use a single-phase AC induction motor. The fan blade is attached to a spindle which projects into the engine. There are two parts in the engine. The spindle, which ends in a freely rotating piece of magnetised iron, is called a rotor. It is split by means of a constant velocity joint so that a secondary spindle extends down from the engine and abuts against the worm gear in the base. On both sides sit the two halves of the so-called stator. The current is passed through both sides of the stator.
The ends of the stator create a shifting magnetic field whose poles change between positive and negative as the electricity continues to flow. The rotor sits in the middle of this magnetic field and has to rotate, both turning the fan blade and causing the fan to swing on its stand.
Multistage standing fans
Multi-stage pedestal fans are somewhat more complex as they use a voltage regulator connected to a single-phase AC synchronous motor. Due to its complexity, the fan head is bulkier and the constant velocity joint connecting the fan head spindle to the worm gear spindle is outside the motor, but still in the plastic housing of the fan. In this case, the rotor is not a single piece of metal, but a cylindrical cage made of copper.
The voltage regulator regulates how much current reaches the stator and the rotor. The more power, the faster the speed. Instead of evenly distributing the available power, a little less power is also transmitted to the rotor via a smaller gauge cable. This difference in electrical potential between the rotor and stator creates a magnetic field that causes the rotor to spin and drive the fan.
What should you consider when buying a fan?
Floor standing fans are nothing more than portable electric fans. These are electrically operated devices that allow you to cool a room on hot days. In warm regions, the weather can be extremely hot and humid, so investing in a ventilation system such as a floor standing fan can be very useful. The biggest advantage of these floor-standing fans is their easy portability. Because you only need one outlet, you can easily use it in any room of your home, depending on your changing needs. Here are some factors to consider when buying a pedestal fan.
One of the biggest advantages of a floor standing fan is that it is very light and portable. They can be easily moved and are therefore perfect for use in different rooms of your home or even outdoors. For example, you can simply put one on your balcony or in a room.
When buying a floor standing fan for your home, look for one that offers different fan modes. Most pedestal fans nowadays have a Low, Medium, or High setting that changes the fan speed. This gives you better control over the temperature in your room. When making your choice, make sure you test all available fan speeds to make sure they match your needs. Each fan has its speed (revolutions per minute). Choose a fan with a higher speed if you need more power. In general, speeds between 1300 and 1400 are sufficient.
In addition to its pure functionality, a floor standing fan is also a great way to add a touch of style to your home. You can choose between different colors and finishes such as plastic and metal to find a fan that is perfect for your home.
Swing function / swivel option
The pan option is a very useful feature in a floor standing fan. With this functionality, the fan shuttles back and forth. In this way, the cool breeze is evenly distributed in every corner of your room. The rocking function is very important when a group of people are in the same room, as it ensures that everyone feels equally comfortable. It also lets you control the direction of the breeze without having to move the fan.
Look for a floor standing fan that is high quality but not too expensive. Plastic standing fans are a great option as they are durable, affordable and of high quality. Unlike standard stainless steel fans, plastic fans do not rust or corrode easily. This means that in the long run, you will spend less on maintenance.
Floor-standing fans are available in various sizes on the market. Choosing the right size may be difficult due to the number of options available. To make the best choice, consider in which part of the room the parking fan is placed. If the room is large, choose a floor standing fan with a wider span, as the breeze can keep the entire room cool. Alternatively, you can buy several small floor fans. For a smaller room, on the other hand, a smaller fan is sufficient, as the area that needs to be ventilated is not too large.
Blades / fan blades
Some fans, especially older models, cause a lot of noise when used. This can interfere with conversation and prevent you from sleeping well. When looking for a parking fan, check how much noise it produces when it is on. Try it at different speeds as the volume can increase as you increase the fan speed. A good fan has a sturdy frame that prevents the wings from making a loud noise, whether the speed is high or the fan is oscillating. Floor standing fans offer a variety of benefits and are an excellent buy if you are looking for an affordable cooling option.Your KlimaLex Team
