Angin kuat?

Visited HomeDec just to check out some stuff lar .. never really bought anything. Saw this booth from Alpha selling all kinds of ceiling fans. I know the trusted brands in fans are usually from Pana or KDK .. but I did not see their booth there wor :-(

What I learnt from my little research over the local renovation and property forums is that :-

3-blade fans
does not look as good as 4 or 5-blade fans
but good wind directly under and surrounding areas

4-blade fans
looks nice but angin not so impressive lah

5-blade fans
looks nice, lots of fancy designs to suit all home types
can only get angin directly under the fan



These days even fans comes with remote control! Aiyoh extra one thing to find in the house as remote controls can be all over the place! I still prefer the regulator type cos what on earth is wrong with standing up and walking over to the wall to turn on the fan???



So I am looking out for a really nice 3-blade fan with a nice modern contemporary design and colour. Any recommendations?

I would recommend a 3 blade fan as I have been using them all over my house and found them pretty effective...

hmm.. to me.. 4 or 5 doesnt really make a huge different also..

we got KDK 4 plates mostly & one 5 plates for dining area (coz the look more impressive)...

i think quite useful to have remote control for certain area lah..

imagine if u want to switch on the aircon for 2hrs and follow by fan aft that.. i dont have to wake up middle of the nite to the wall mah.. just 1 click & can continue to sleep.. hahahahhaaa... ;)

regret now since did install remote for chloe's room.. :S

same as josephine, mine's also the KDK one. we never move the remote control frm the wall!! i miss those without remote controls! ahh the good ol' days of simplicity.

Hi....I always forget that your blog does not update my Google REader....I wonder why!

Anyway....I have remonte control fans in all my rooms except the kitchen....

After a while you may get used and love your remonte control fans....sure helps when you want to regulate the air-con and fan in the middle of the night.

And if you buy remonte control fans, try to get all the same kind so that you can interchange the remotes!

I have mainly 5 blade ALPHA/Wings fans....bought them from a shop in Subang for RM180.Only one 3 blade with regulator for RM120.

Good luck choosing!
