Are table fans cordless? How do you charge these table fans?

Table fans are the most widely used fans after the ceiling fans and if we consider the modifications in the fans and take into consideration the wall mounted fans then the table fans might become the most widely used category of fan to be used across the world. The table fans over the span of time have evolved become more efficient and quiet.

The first model which could be classified as the electric table fan was designed by Peter Behrens and was introduced by a company named Allgemeine Elektricitats Gesellschaft (A.E.G) in 1908.

The table fans have simple mechanism of working and they employ the very traditional single phase induction motor to work. When current passes through the stator coil, there is magnetisation due to the current and this magnetisation due to electromagnetic induction induces current in the rotor coil and this induced current magnetises the rotor coil thus this causes the two coils to undergo rotation and since the stator coil is fixed thus the rotor rotates and along with that the rotating shaft also rotates, rotating the fan blades along with them and this causes the air to be sucked from behind and be pushed in front with force which gives the user a sensation of breeze. In the table fan, the motor assembly is sealed and the blades are encased into a cage like structure which prevents injury to user by the blades.

 

There have been many evolutions in terms of the table fan. In the traditional table fans there were motors which were not very fast, and the motors were not at all efficient and they were noisy while operating them. During the course of their usage the speed of the motors has been drastically improved, the fans have become much more efficient in terms of airflow efficiency and they have definitely become very much quiet. Nowadays the table fans are coming to the markets which even run on solar power. These devices have a solar panel attached to them and the solar panel converts the solar energy to the electrical energy and transmit it t the fan which converts this electrical energy to mechanical energy by means of the motor. These devices use the DC motor because the solar panel converts the solar energy to the Direct current and this DC is converted to mechanical work by using a DC motor.

 

These fans are also modified to be cordless table fans. Yes, there are cordless table fans.  These cordless table fans generally come with solar power conversion technology, but these are also available without them. The question that arises is what is a cordless table fan? To answer that a cordless fan is such a table fan which doesn’t has a wire connecting it to the main supply to operate. These fans have inbuilt batteries which are rechargeable and these very batteries provide the motor with electric power which makes it run. These fans have BLDC motors which are much more efficient and fast. These devices are charge either using an AC-DC SMPS charger or few of them have USB mobile charging and also some have their own charging equipment and the user just has to plug it in and leave it that way for the specified time. You can buy these fans online too, from companies like Atomberg.

Four Mistakes You Don’t Want To Make When Lighting A Room

Investing in home lighting can add value to your home, transform the feel of a room and add more light. Though added lighting might have its benefits, if done incorrectly, you might end up regretting your decision. So, when looking for new lighting fixtures for a room in your home, be careful not to make these mistakes:

  1. Fixture Sizing

Without considering the space you have to work with, you might end up getting lighting fixtures that are too large or too small for the area. A large fixture in a small room can be obtrusive, overwhelming and possibly hazardous. A large room with accessories too small can look quite silly, disproportionate and the lighting might not be sufficient for your needs.

  1. Out of Reach

Access to lighting can also make or break a room’s functionality. Specifically, fixtures needing manual engagement. If you are sitting on your sofa and the light fixture by your side is too tall to switch on from a sitting position, frustration will inevitably ensue. If you have a squatty fixture where you have to bend over and scoop your hand down under the lamp shade to switch on, you didn’t think it through. Always consider placing fixtures at a convenient height.

  1. Effect on Paint Colors

Lighting affects certain colors more than others. Certain hues can make all the difference. Darker colors can seem even darker when shadows are in place, contrasting from the light. Mint green can transform to forest green with the flip of a switch if you’re not careful. Study the colors and pick lighting accordingly.

  1. Overkill

Yes, you can go too far. Too many fixtures and too many layers of lighting (overhead, task lighting, ambient, accent, etc.) can strain the eyes, overwhelm the room and miss the mark for functionality. Identify the needs of the room before you begin the process. Having a plan for a room will help keep you from being swayed by every cute light you’ll see at the store.

The experts at Home Lighting Center in Idaho Falls, Idaho, urge homeowners to do their research before committing to their project. Having a plan can save you lots of time, money and headache.

How to Keep Your Hardwood Floors Looking New Forever

Whether you’ve had hardwood floors installed or simply sanded down and resurfaced the original ones, keeping them well maintained is important if you want them to stay looking just as good as they do now. Read on for our short guide to keeping hardwood floors looking new forever.

Furniture Pads, Rugs and Runners

Furniture pads are a godsend when it comes to your hardwood flooring and will prevent all sorts of bumps, scratches or worse. Furniture with wheels rather than legs will ultimately do less damage, but this is not always the most practical (or attractive) choice. Buy plenty of furniture pads, as they tend to go missing, and put them under any furniture with legs, even short bun feet, and especially on items that have a heavy burden such a book shelves. Also invest in rugs or runners for high-traffic areas.

Have a Shoe-Free Policy

Not only are shoes highly unhygienic in the home, but they can also damage hardwood floors. Encourage visitors to remove their shoes when they come round, perhaps by having a selection of slippers for them to borrow by the door. Shoes can cause no end of scuffs and scratches, and if someone is walking around with heavy boots or high heels, it’s not long before these build up to become something unsightly. Similarly, pet claws should be regularly trimmed.

Clean with Vinegar – Avoid Water

Even if you have a waterproof finish on your wood floors, you should avoid having a large amount of water going on them at any time. Water will inevitably damage your hardwood floors over time, especially if we are talking about a weekly soppy mop or multiple spillages from clumsy children. Instead of constant mopping, keep them well swept and spot-clean them if necessary. Obviously, you will want to give them a wipe and polish from time to time, but use a mix of water and vinegar to give a good shine, and try to wring out your mop as much as possible before it goes down each time. Avoid cleaning products with lemon or citrus, which will damage the floor – this is true of both hardwood and engineered wood flooring such as that available from http://www.ukflooringdirect.co.uk/engineered-wood-flooring.

These simple, low-cost tips will help keep your hardwood floors looking new forever.
