The quieter operation is one of the things that makes the MeacoFan home fan range different from the other, more basic fans on the market, and is all thanks to its DC motor. The other advantages that come with a DC motor, are lower running costs thanks to the motor's lower energy consumption, lower noise to airflow ratio and has a longer running life.
As well as stylish and lightweight, all MeacoFans have been awarded a Quiet Mark in recognition of being amongst the quietest cooling fans tested to date. Quiet Mark is the international approval award programme associated with the UK Noise Abatement Society charitable foundation. The 650 and 1056 has a noise level starting from just 20 decibels, and at 15 decibels the 360 is the quietest in the MeacoFan range ( equivalent to a babbling brook, a whisper or some rustling leaves.)
