Impact of ceiling fans


#1

Hi all!

Does anyone knows if there’s a way of analyzing the impact on comfort and/or in thermal sensation ceiling fans have?

Thanks in advance,
Diego

I think people usually just add a wind velocity component to their comfort calc. As for determining what that velocity is though and how far from the fan it can be felt I’m not sure if there are any out of the box models that won’t fall short of just being CFD.

Sounds like a good research paper topic! :sunglasses:
