"A Ceiling fan is a mechanical fan, usually electrically powered, suspended from the ceiling of a room that uses hub-mounted rotating blades to circulate air".
Way back to 500 BC Pankha (पंखा ) type ceiling fans were used in India. Unlike modern rotary fans, these Pankha fans move air by moving to and fro and were operated manually by cord.
The electrically powered ceiling fan was inverted in 1882 by philip Diehl. He adopted electric motor for use in ceiling fan. Each fan had its own self-contained motor unit with no need for belt drive.
In the world of electrical appliances, the invention of ceiling fan was a major milestone. Yet when it comes to innovation, this is one appliance that has been overlooked by almost everyone. Today's ceiling fan can be customized to improve the overall look, feel and efficiency.
The ceiling fan is not only an ordinary appliance rather it has become a part of the modern interior. Its utility has been redefined as a showpiece & must part of indoor decoration.
