FAN MOTORS...KNOW THE DIFFERENCE
WHEN ENERGY EFFICIENCY MATTERS
With the cost of energy constantly on the rise, buying energy efficient appliances is of the utmost importance. Emerson offers the most energy efficient ceiling fan motors in the business and here's how they do it...
• At a cost of less than 1? per hour to run, the Emerson EcoMotor is up to 3 times more efficient than typical ceiling fan motors.
• Each EcoMotor is designed to use a maximum of only 30 watts of energy.
• With the strength of the motor, Emerson is able to drive a higher degree of pitch more efficiently.
• Each fan is shipped with built in electronics for 6 speed control.
*The Midway Eco from Emerson, has been rated as the top energy efficient ceiling fan in the market under $500. Based on Energy star ratings, 10/2012.
WHEN POWER MATTERS
If you're looking for the most powerful and most silent fan you can find, then look for an Emerson fan with the K55XL Motor. The K55XL is top rated ceiling fan motor in the business and here's how they do it.
• To gurantee silent fan operation, the largest ball bearings made of steel are used.
• Quality copper wiring is must for any ceiling fan and the K55 has over 2200 feet of it. Emerson also uses thick motor laminations. Together, these features offer a higher performance and unmatched life.
SILENCE IS KING
Each K55XL is fitted with a patented Silent Rubber Hub as the flywheel. The hub acts as an absorber of noise to eliminate its transmission. The flywheel is an integral part of the superior performance experienced by the K55XL.
DIFFERENT MOTOR TYPES
There are 2 types of ceiling fan motors in the industry, ones we like to call "Spin Motors" and ones we like to call "Solid Shafted Motors". With a spin motor, the blades of the ceiling fan are attached to the motor and that motor rotates around a fixed shaft in the middle. This way of building a motor is less expensive, less powerful, less efficient and creates more noise. This is the most common type of ceiling fan motor available. The solid shafted motor, Emerson's K55XL, is a completely solid motor where only the shaft in the center of the fan spins. Blades are attached to a flywheel, which is then attached to the shaft in the center. This is a higher quality design, more powerful, more efficient and silent.
Spin motors are available in several different "grades". Lower priced ceiling fans will typically be found with a motor size of 153MM to 172MM. They will have a good airflow and will be relatively quiet. Very good and excellent spin motor sizes will be in the range of 188mm to 212mm or above. They will have excellent air movement and be very quiet in operation.
