Ceiling fan and table fan - direction of rotation.
Asked Apr 21, 2009, 07:48 AM
My observation about comparison between direction of rotation of ceiling fans & table fans - for domestic or office applications:
Always table fans are rotated in clock wise direction when seen from front side i.e. from the side where we get breeze. Whereas, ceiling fans rotates in anticlock wise direction. Why this is so? (constructionally, the difference is; ceiling fan has got outer part - body which acts as a rotor, where as in table fans inner part is rotating. Is this with reference to some international standard or what. I am resident of India.
