Pedestal fans are gaining popularity all across the country. Their efficient performance and instant cooling make them an ideal choice for households all across India. These fast oscillating, portable fans can cool down any space in your home. Here are some things to keep in mind before buying a pedestal fan!

Air delivery

Pedestal fans are known for their powerful air delivery which is measured in CMM or Cubic Metre Per Minute. This basically stands for the volume of air pushed out per minute. The more air that the fan pushes out, the stronger the breeze will be. CMM is also dependent on the space of your choice. For example, a Farrata pedestal fan is used in large spaces and can cover 3,000 CMM or more but if you are looking for a fan that you can use indoors the range would be from about 60-100 CMM.


Fans rotate at different speeds which is responsible for the cooling it delivers. This is measured by RPM or Rotations Per Minute. So, the faster the fan spins, the faster is the cooling. There are two types of pedestal fans available: Normal and High Speed. A pedestal fan with 1300 RPM would be considered normal whereas anything around 2100 RPM would be considered High Speed. However, a good RPM range for indoor use at home would be anywhere between 1300-1400.


One of the main factors that decide the durability of a pedestal fan is the material that it is made with. It could be plastic or metal. The ones made with plastic are lighter which makes it easier to move from one place to another whereas the metal ones are more sturdy and durable. Consider the hours of usage, chances of rusting and maintenance needs, etc. before making the purchase.


When you select a pedestal fan, it is very important to keep in mind the physical space it will occupy in your home. To gauge where to place your fan, always check the blade sweep and height. Sweep is the diameter of the circle that is created when a fan spins. The sweep size and height of the fan should match and fit comfortably in whichever room you intend to place the fan. Another aspect would be to also look at the size of the room you are placing your pedestal fan in. If the room is bigger and the fan needs to cover more area, naturally the height would also have to be adjusted accordingly.

Noise factor

Heavy fans with more output tend to make more noise and force you to choose between performance and the silent factor. So, do remember to test the fans on multiple speed modes to check if they are noisy or not. For example, some newer models like Crompton’s SilentPro Pentaflow fan come equipped with silencing technology which makes pedestal fans a great option for night time as well.


Pedestal fans have always been viewed as a generic household appliance with little or no scope of improvement. But with newer and more innovative technology, Crompton has introduced fans like Hi Flo Aveia, SilentPro PentaFlow, etc which are pedestal fans with remote control function. This helps you get cool breeze at the click of a button!


We know that sometimes household appliances like pedestal fans can seem like they are unreasonably priced but if you look at all the various features, benefits and the convenience it offers it surely is more of an investment for the future. Due to its portability and size, it can be used not only indoors but also outdoors throughout the year.

So, we hope that before you make a purchase, you will consider these points to help you make your decision. Check out Crompton’s new range of pedestal fans for an affordable yet efficient cooling option!
