As the earth warms up, the humble fan at our homes is no longer a seasonal necessity, enjoying an increasingly longer run through the year. On top of that is the challenge of complimenting your taste and house too, and you know that your next fan has a tough set of questions to answer. CK Birla group firm Orient Electric, which has been in the business for decades, has just upped the stakes with its new range recently. And the change isn’t about to stop with the product.

Starting with the brands Aero Series, the lineup comes with the Aerocool and the AeroStorm ceiling fans. Launched at a price tag of Rs 5,290 and Rs 5,990, the fansare now available for Rs 5,025 and Rs 5,399 respectively on Orient’s Official website, Amazon India and retail outlets across the nation.

The company promises that the fans offer air delivery of 300 CMM ( Cubic metre per minute) with minimum air vortex and sound. The fan has a sweep of 1320 mm and it offers 100 percent rust-free blades made of high-grade glass filled compounded ABS which provides strength to the blades, thus making it bend-proof, rust-proof and easy to clean. And of course, a lighter fan.
Next up is Orient’s Wind Pro series, which includes theWall 80 – wall mounting fan, Stand 70 – standing fan and Table 60 – table fan.

The changes in the Wind Pro lineup include 5 propeller blades, instead of 3, which delivers high thrust airflow with the 95 CMM of high air delivery at moderate power consumption. Other than this, the leaves are capable of producing sweep of 400mm at 1300 rpm.
Under the brand’s designer section, you will get the Orient Calisto for Rs 6,800 and available via various offline channels.
