AC vs DC Ceiling Fans – What’s Better?
Posted on May 15, 2021
AC and DC ceiling fans are types of ceiling fans each with its own positives and negatives. From how much power they consume to the initial cost of the appliance, an AC or DC fan will suit different people. Here at The Local Electrician, we offer the best ceiling fan repair and installation service where our team will install any AC or DC ceiling fan.
AC ceiling fans work by having electrical current travel in reverse directions while DC ceiling fans’ current goes one direction. An alternating current ceiling fan will be connected to a power source directly and are cheaper to purchase. Direct current ceiling fans will be more energy efficient, quieter and slimmer but will cost more when purchasing them.
What are Alternating and Direct Current Ceiling Fans?
Alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC) are ways that electricity flows inside circuits, appliances and systems. Direct current fans will use a power source often from a transformer to power itself. This power will be converted to energy to a one-way or direct current and the power used is often decreased. alternating current fans will not convert power but use the electricity directly from the wiring. The speed which is using this power is regulated by controlling the frequency of the current.
For more useful information on alternating current and direct current, our blog provides further details and examples.
