How Energy Savings are Promoted with EC Fan Technology

Organizations and businesses are always looking for innovative ways to reduce energy consumption, which is both good for the environment and generates big savings. New, energy-efficient fan technology is a great way to find those energy savings. What makes this technology more energy-efficient than previous models?

The answer is EC fan technology. 

What is EC Fan Technology?

EC stands for Electronically Commutated. EC fan technology combines both AC and DC voltages to create smoothly operating, energy-efficient fans that are the best of both worlds. EC fans run on high efficiency brushless DC motors driven directly from an AC power supply. 

How EC Fan Technology Saves Energy

EC fans save energy mainly due to their efficient design which combines a motor, impeller, and speed controller into one module. Without the belts and pulleys used by AC induction motor driven fans, EC fans require less power and maintenance. In fact, the European Union recommends EC fan technology because it boasts higher efficiency, greater control options, and easy maintenance and installation.

Power consumption is reduced by approximately 80% with a SUNON EC Axial fan when compared to conventional AC fans and shade pole motors. This can make a huge different to a business’s bottom line. According to the Carbon Trust, “a 20% reduction in energy costs represents the same bottom line benefit as a 5% increase in sales.”

Who Can Benefit From EC Fan Technology Energy Savings?

Many industries and technologies can benefit from the energy-saving power of EC fan technology, including: 

  • Industrial refrigerators and freezers
  • Medical refrigeration
  • Telecom base stations
  • Concentrators and ventilators 
  • EV charging stations
  • Automation
