Let’s reveal the mystery. No, it is not magic. Although you can’t see them, these fans do have blades; just not where you’d expect them to be. Its blades are in its base. Thanks to the compressor that is also in its base, the air is drawn there and then directed up to the ring. The air comes out of a slit around the ring.
This ceiling fan works nothing like the traditional ones. The bladeless ceiling fans come with rotating flat disks. These disks ‘breathe in’ air and then ‘exhale’ it at the very top of the room; thus they provide laminar airflow that moves down the walls. Therefore, a bladeless ceiling fan eliminates the hot and cold spots that are inevitable when using a traditional fan, as it circulates the air evenly throughout the walls.
Aside from being cool (no pun intended!) there are many benefits of using them instead of traditional ones. The most prominent ones are listed below.
Let’s state the obvious first – it is called ‘bladeless’ because it does not have external blades. Since safety does indeed come first, this is a significant advantage over standard fans. You won’t risk cutting yourself from the blades when cleaning it up.
If you are the lazy type, you are going to love this one! These fans come with remote control. No need for you to get up and disrupt your comfort – you can adjust the speed with a simple press on a button right from the spot.
This one is obvious – Fans with no blades look pleasant and can easily adapt to your home décor. However, generally speaking, the cooler a model looks, the steeper the bladeless fan price.
As expected, these fans are lighter than conventional ones. You had it in the living room, but now need it in the dining room? Easy peasy! Their mobility is unlimited.
Buffeting produced by the blades can get pretty annoying over time. You don’t have to worry about that when using a bladeless fan. So, are bladeless fans quiet? To make this straight – no buffeting does not necessarily mean no noise. However, while you can hear them working – they are much quieter than traditional fans.
As mentioned above, these fans have a powerful airflow system, and if you are willing to put in the extra money, you may just as well get one with an air purifier built-in.
If you’re wondering what a decent price would be, you should know that prices for this awesome new-age technology can vary, mostly depending on the brands. It is a well-known rule that better brands come with higher prices. If you’re looking for a cheaper bladeless fan, use one of many Amazon sale offers and codes. On the other hand, a more expensive brand, Dyson, for example – is priced at $200 and upward.
