There are many types of hand fans available these days. But which is the very best?
And, how do you choose between them? Well, that’s what I’m here to help you with today. How To Choose The Very Best Type Of Hand Fan For Your Needs! Before we get started, a ground rules: (1. I’m only going to consider manual fans in this comparison.).
Hand fans have been around for centuries and are typically made of bamboo, rattan or paper and have intricately detailed feather motifs. Hand fans can be used as an excellent decorative item, a powerful cooling instrument and many other uses depending on the kind you have.
What are hand fans?
When people think of hand fans they tend to think of the type mentioned above, something that is constructed so that you wave it in front of your face and you get a cool breeze. But today that also includes fans that have a manual rotary crank on the side for you to turn and which, in turn (pun intended) turns the blades of the fan
There are many different kinds of hand fans and each has its own unique use. How Do You Choose The Very Best Hand Fan? There is no “best” but rather there is only your choice. What I am going to do in this section is give you some guidelines to help you make an intelligent choice. Let’s start with what you should be looking for in the first place. Obviously, the first consideration is cost. But, also, consider how much power the fan will deliver.
Types of hand fans
As mentioned above, there are many different types of hand fans to choose from. Many different designs to look at and you can really choose one that is perfect for you. This article will be talking about the two general types, those that you wave in front of you and those with the hand crank on them.
The first type of hand fan I am going to discuss here is the kind you wave in front of your face. These are the “classical” fans and the ones most people are familiar with. The next section will be about the other type of fan which has the rotary crank on it. I think it is important to cover both of these types of fans because they both have very valid uses and it is good to be well informed when you are shopping for something as important as a hand fan. What To Look For In A Hand Fan You Wave In Front Of Your Face The first consideration is how powerful it is.
A classical fan is a type where it’s made out of something like cloth or paper. It’s made by folding the material (let’s refer to as paper from now on) and then opening one side up to produce the fan.
This is a type of fan you can make yourself with a piece of paper. There are many pre-made, many with classical designs on them.
One of my favourites is the paper hand fan. This one is very simple to make and looks kind of like a little birdie perched on a penny. It produces a very nice, soft breeze. Here is how to make it: Fold a sheet of paper in half lengthwise. Open up the fold like you would open a book. Now, starting at the top of the opened book, fold each successive section over on the outside so that all those layers come together in the middle and form a neat, tight packet. Continue folding down the page until you get to the bottom. Now, unfold the entire thing. You should have a neat little penny-like fan. If you have done everything correctly, this little fan will produce a very pleasant breeze.
Hand crank fan
Sometimes the weather in the spring, summer, and fall can be unbearable. The humidity is unbearable, and it’s hard to stay cool. In order to stay cool, there are many different things one can do. One of those things is bringing a hand crank fan with them wherever they go. Hand crank fans are a great way to stay cool. They’re lightweight, portable, and easy to use. They’re also a great way to stay cool because they are inexpensive. Hand crank fans are also environmentally friendly as well as a great man alternative for cooling a whole room.
A hand-crank fan is simply a fan unit that has a manual turning crank on the side. You turn the handle and the fan blades go round. When you stop turning the handle, the fan comes to rest.
These are also great for producing a personal breeze to cool you down. However, you have to work to get the breeze.
How to choose fans for yourself
If you are making a choice of manual fans then most of them are quite cheap to purchase; free if you make your own; so why choose. Why not try both.
Both offer cooling air generated by your own power.
The difference is, one gives out a light breeze and the other gives out a strong breeze. The one which gives out a strong breeze will be more useful in an environment where there is little or no breeze. This will be the case when you are in a stuffy room, or in a car, or on a boat, or in an office building with bad air conditioning, or any other place where there is less than perfect ventilation. In this case, the hand crank fan will be the superior choice. However, if you are in an open-air situation where the breeze is light, then you will be able to enjoy the light breeze produced by the electric fan. So, how do you decide?
