Exhale Fans, a bladeless fan to save energy in winter!
Exhale Fans, a vortex effect ceiling fan without blades, benefiting from 3 patents, inspired by aviation turbines, answers this problem.
Destratification: how can low speed air circulation reduce heating consumption?
Warm air naturally rises to the top of the room. Thus, in winter, the warmest part of the dwelling is not at the level of the occupants’ bodies, but rather at the ceiling.
We therefore normally have different temperature ‘layers’ in the home, from cold to warm. By moving the air from the top to the bottom, the layers of air are destratified and the temperature is homogenised, making the rooms more comfortable in winter.
With a low speed rotation, the sensation of draught is imperceptible, while at the same time increasing the temperature enjoyed by people.
An Electricité de France (EDF the french national electricity supplier) study has shown that destratification can lead to energy savings of up to 30% in winter.
Investing in a ceiling fan is therefore a particularly useful way of limiting heating costs.
Harmonising temperatures: a positive impact regardless of the heating system
The Exhale bladeless ceiling fan works well with any conventional heating system (electric radiators, boilers, heat pumps).
It has a particular advantage with wood-burning systems, such as log stoves. For example, where these stoves tend to radiate very intense heat in close proximity, the use of the fan allows the temperature to be distributed more evenly throughout the room, and improves comfort considerably.
Exhale Fans, a ceiling fan with an innovative design
With no blades, the Exhale Fans air blower is particularly safe (no risk of hitting the upper limbs), and particularly quiet (40 dB at maximum speed).
Designed in the United States, it is distributed by Exhale Fans Europe, an SME based in Biot, in the Alpes-Maritimes, created in 2013.
How much does running the Exhale fan 24-hours a day cost?
Based on a kWh cost of 0.174€ (EDF average rate 2021).
Knowing that an Exhale in speed 1 (minimum / for winter comfort), consumes only 4 Watts per hour.
Knowing that an Exhale in speed 6 (maximum / for summer comfort) consumes 50 Watts per hour.
In a month of 30 days, running 24 hours a day, it will therefore run 24 x 30 = 720h/month.
- At speed 1 (winter comfort), an exhale running 24 hours a day will consume 0.5€ of electricity per month.
- At speed 6 (summer comfort), an exhale running 24 hours a day will consume 6,26€ of electricity per month.
