A Stand Fan With Water Spray Adds A Refreshing Cooling Effect
A stand fan with water spray adds a refreshing cooling effect to traditional electric fans. It uses a special pipe system connected to a reliable water supply, with automatic actuation via a Deluge valve.
This 18 inch misting standing fan features patented BLDC motor, which has energy conservation, low noise and intelligent characteristics. It can also be controlled by RF remote or multifunctional control panel.
A misting fan blows a fine spray of water that evaporates and cools the air. This adds a refreshing cooling effect that can be much stronger than the breeze of a normal electric fan. Some models have a high water pressure for an intense cooling spray, while others use a lower pressure for a gentler mist.
You’ll also find some that have a drain valve for the nozzles so any mineral build up can be flushed out and prevent clogging. You should be sure the fan is set up stand fan with water spray in a location where any puddling from the wet mist won’t cause damage or obstruct the airflow. It’s best to flush out the lines before first use to get rid of any debris that may clog the nozzles.
Some models have a swivel option so you can adjust the direction of the mist spray. This is especially useful if you have company sitting around the patio or outdoor living space and need to direct the cooling mist to different areas.
Some stand fans with a water spray have a built-in pump that uses the power of the fan to create the mist. This saves on electricity costs compared to using a separate pump and hose for each fan. This type of model works well in places with easy access to a hose or water supply.
When evaluating a fan, pay special attention to the noise levels it produces. A good indicator of the level is its decibel rating. Sound that is below 0 dB is inaudible, while noise at 120 dB can cause pain and hearing loss over time. The frequency of the noise is also important to consider. Low rumbling sounds tend to be less noticeable than high whistling noises.
If your fan makes an annoying scraping or rubbing noise, the problem could be caused by the blade brackets dragging on the motor shroud cover or the fan housing. This can often be fixed by loosening the cover’s screws, adjusting it, and tightening the screws again. In addition, the unbalanced blades of the fan can sometimes cause these noises. To correct this, you can use a balancing kit that usually comes with new fans or is available at hardware stores.
Some stand fans have handles and wheels to make it easier to move them. These are especially helpful if you will be using the fan in an outdoor area or for moving it between different locations on a regular basis. You may also want to look at the type of finish that the stand, blades, stand fan with water spray and housing have. A powder coated finish helps protect these elements from moisture and damage.
The energy efficiency of a stand fan with water spray depends on the power source and whether it is mains or battery operated. There are also different styles of fans with a misting function, for example wall mounted or compact or portable models. A wall mounted style would be fixed to a wall or ceiling, and connect to a power outlet, and a water supply such as a garden hose, an internal water tank or even an external container. These are typically more efficient as they disperse the air and mist further into the room, but may be restrained by the location of the power outlet.
Portable and compact fans are usually more flexible, although still limited by the availability of power outlets, or a portable water supply. These can be powered by electricity or batteries, and some are rechargeable, providing long run times and portability. There are also misting kits which convert a regular fan by attaching hoses and nozzles, to provide the cooling effect of a mister alongside the normal fan operation.
A good choice is a model with an energy saving BLDC motor that uses up to 70% less energy than the average household fan. Its stylish design is slim and space-saving, with a remote control for easy operating and setting. Other features include a timer and oscillation.
Some models use a system of fine nozzles to deliver the mist directly into the air flow while others mount a centrifugal system at the center. The former method tends to be cheaper, yet the nozzles can easily become clogged with mineral deposits or tiny dirt particles. A hose line filter helps to prevent this from happening. Ensure the fan is not set up in a location where it can be easily tipped over, as the wet mist could spill. It is also advisable to flush the hose lines before the first use. This helps to clear out any sediment in the water supply.
