Electric Fan – Over the years!
One of the most common electric appliances than can be found in every household, be it big or small, these days is the electric fan. And not just now, the electric fan has been there for a substantial amount of time. From handheld fans to mechanical fans run by steam, oil or even alcohol, usage of different type of fans was prevalent and quite popular until the electric fan was invented in the 1880s. The first electric fan was invented by Schuyler Skaats Wheeler of LA and was commercially marketed by the American firm Crocker & Curtis electric motor company. Since then the world has seen a huge paradigm shift with the electrical fan becoming one of the common electrical appliances to be found in most of the households all over the world.
In today’s world, the technology used in electrical fans has evolved by leaps and bounds. The world witnessed an ocean of changes during the period of 1910 to 1920 and it was during that time only the electric fan was developed majorly for residential use. Over the years, it was changed and modified according to the requirement. It was also during this time that the fan was being mass produced which enabled the manufacturers to lower the overall price and, in turn, making it more convenient to use by the mass population.
With the advent of the air conditioning both in domestic residences and office spaces, it seemed as if the usage of fan would take a backseat. However, soon people realised the cost factor attached to the usage of air conditioners. Although the air conditioners cooled the air with much better results, it consumed a large amount of electricity and resulted in high electricity bills. Many people were of the opinion that paying such hefty amount for using the air conditioners was not justified and hence the popularity of electric fans was never compromised.
With more and more advancement in the technology used in the electric fans, the usability of the electric fans also increased. Fans with better functionality that provided more air with lesser electricity consumption and lesser noise are now available and that too in the most reasonable price.
