Ceiling Fan Power Consumption Calculator



The most commonly used electrical appliance in your home is the ceiling fan. Generally, fans function 24×7 in Indian homes, especially as the climate gets hotter by the day.

Therefore, it is a matter of concern as to how much power would a ceiling fan consume in a day. However, a ceiling fan does not consume much electricity.

The ceiling fan specification list does not provide details about electricity consumption in units. Instead, it provides the rated power of the appliance. Our ceiling fan power consumption calculator helps you calculate the daily power consumption in units and its effect on your overall electricity bill.
