What is the Maximum Speed for a Fan & Why Not Faster?
All professionally designed ceilings fans should be preprogrammed for a both a minimum and a maximum speed. This provides the user of the ceiling fan to operate within safe and efficient parameters.
By spinning the fan below the minimum set speed, the fan would be consuming energy, but not moving enough air to be effective in a space. The same is somewhat true with extending the speed of a ceiling fan beyond the preprogrammed maximum speed. While the ceiling fan will spin faster, the energy consumption will increase, but the volume of air and velocity of air will not increase with it.
Technically, the maximum speed of a ceiling fan can be increased. However, the only additional gain in doing so is an increase in energy consumed. Performance of a ceiling fan will not improve by making it go faster. To improve the performance of a ceiling fan, consult a professional for recommendations.
