In the hot and humid climate of Singapore, fans are quintessential product in every homes. A fan cools you down by blowing air around, making it easier for air to evaporate sweat from your skin which is how body heat is eliminated. More than just cooling, fan also provides greater circulation of air thereby creating a more ventilated environment. Among the several ways of achieving space cooling, the most prominent ones are still either a fan or an air conditioner. Depending on some factors, fans are generally cheaper to buy and install than air conditioning and it takes more energy to move heat around than it takes a fan to blow air onto your skin. As a result, parking yourself in front of a fan is significantly more energy efficient. Fans use around 1% of the electricity consumed by air conditioners. You could leave a fan running for a full 24 hours and still use less energy than 15 minutes of air conditioning. Hence, fans are cheapest cooling option to run with the lowest environmental impact because they consume less energy.
