When you go to market for buying fans, you get too much confused. There are lots of designs and models are available. So, you need to decide beforehand what you are going to buy. Do you need a ceiling fan or a table fan will be enough? These fans are different from each other. Though all of these circulate cool air throughout your room, still you need to know which type is more efficient than the others. Let’s see the difference among ceiling fan and table or pedestal fan.
Difference in Installation
Yes, both of these fans circulate air but there are certain differences. You can place table fans wherever you want. If it becomes difficult to work in the kitchen without a fan, a small table fan can easily solve your problem.
But, you can’t install a ceiling fan at your kitchen. Besides, there is something more that matter while buying ceiling fans like room size, blade size, etc. With table or pedestal ones, you don’t have to bother all these things.
Difference in Convenience
If you buy table or pedestal fan, you can carry it wherever you go. The design is compact and small which has made these fans portable and convenient to install. It is true that ceiling fan circulate more air than other fans, but it has larger blades and not portable. While installing, ceiling fans are fixed with the fixture of your ceiling.
Difference in Style
Whether you buy online or from any electronics shop, you can have a wide range of stylish ceiling fans with lots of advance features. Some fans come with lighting arrangement; some may have remote control system; there are fans which have movable blades and so on. You can buy one according to the interior decoration of your house. Table fans are not that much versatile in style. Though you can get variety of colors and materials, you won’t find any variation in covers or blades.
Difference in Features
Maybe you can’t give full marks to table fans on style, but in features, these fans are much more flexible than ceiling ones. The adjustable height and multiple speeds with oscillation have made the tables fans advance. The features of ceiling fans are limited only to reverse oscillation and multiple speeds.
Difference in Cooling the Room
On this aspect, the ceiling fan will win forever. It is much more efficient in circulating conditioned air as it has large blades. Table fan, on the other hand, can circulate air if you place it in doorways or in between the rooms.
Difference on the Question of Safety
If you install a ceiling fan correctly, then there is no chance of hazards. Still, you should be careful if your ceiling is too low. Check whether the fan is touching your head as that can cause accident. Though there is also lesser chance of accidents with table fans, still if you have kids you need to be extra careful as children take interest in poking fingers through the grills of table fans.
Both types of fans are efficient in their way. It is up to you what you want to buy to meet your purpose.
