Using Atomberg Efficio+ for the last 2.5 yrs. Never faced any issue. Just a word of caution that the regulator has to be either cut off or set to max for max efficiency of such fans. The customer support team is also responsive.

Changed all 5 (8 – 12 years) old fans in our home with Atomberg Renesa model fans during BBD sale. Each cost nearly 2.5k. Have not faced any problem since last 4 months. Also, as Atomberg Renesa Smart + fans are very costly, so I have made use of Zebronics IR blaster to make the Renesa fans smart. The combination works great.

Can we use Oakter IR blaster to control Atomberg fans? Any specific models works or all Atomberg fans can be controlled using IR blaster?

No idea bro. Haven’t used air coolers. But if the cooler has an IR remote then IR blasters should work fine.

As far as I know, all Atomberg fans run on mostly the same mechanism. So all of them should be compatible with IR blasters. I personally use it with Renesa fans. 

Also, I haven’t used Oakter IR blaster. But it should work fine. I preferred Zebronics as in Amazon reviews and Q/A section, most people mentioned using Zebronics to automate fans. 

One thing you need to keep in mind is you can change speed through the app but in case you are using google mini or echo, the fan can only be turned on or off through voice commands. You cannot change speed. 


I tried tweaking in-app and was able to increase the fan speed in google mini but could not decrease the speed.

I found a difference of 150-200 INR in electricity bill in the first month of use of all 5 fans. Due to winter, we did not use a fan for the past 3 months.

U can always use a IR blaster instead. But that would become tedious after sometime. Better to buy a remote from Atomberg site itself. They currently charges 250 per remote. Previously it was 150. They recently increased price. Heres the link:

The only difference between Renesa and Renesa+ is dust resistant coating, which according to me seems to be more of a gimmick after going through a lot of reviews. 

I bought 4 1200mm and 1 1400mm Renesa fans. 1400 mm one covers a bit more area, nothing else.

Can anyone share their experience of Halonix BLDC fans…

Need to replace all fans in my home [which are 7-8 years Old]…. Selected halonix because Tata power is providing BLDC fans at subsidized rates along with 2 years warranty in delhi…

P.S. - Whether these fans can be repaired by local electrician or not?

The spread of air goes far due to the length of blades and so 1400mm is better for larger rooms. Air flow seemed the same to me. In fact, I found air flow of 1200mm to be better in small rooms.

Local folks can’t fix major issues. If you call them for minor issues, they may end up creating major issues.

You can buy a new fan same day 😝

Normal fans are bare-bones with just a winding and capacitor in electronics to go wrong which can be repaired easily or even re-winded.

While these BLDC fans have electronic controllers extra from normal fan which can go wrong which I am not sure what these companies are charging out of service period for them.

Else it’s just a regular fan so repair guys won’t take much time to learn to repair them also.

Also no idea of avg, life of these fans but extra electronics will definitely reduce the life although the energy saving should balance it out

They are definitely not available as of now but once it gains the market and comes into mainstream it will.

Now govt. are also pushing these fans hence we can see this happening soon.

But one buying them now will definitely have to rely on the services of these companies.

Likely yes, the solution is not to discard the old one. But hey these bldc fans are tested rigorously, and there is always our stars/constellations conspiring against us

Speaker from designer (hard ware engineer) perspective. Repair of these is usually complex even for an electrical engineer or even for the one who designed. We wreck our brains in labs to debug what went wrong when something goes wrong. As an engineer, we don’t replace with new spare and discard the damaged part, we need reasons to prevent that happening further.

My gut feeling is the makers may train the service centre folks to replace like most inverter based airconditioners/refrigerators/washing machines makers do
