It is heartening to see self sufficiency and even export of pedestal fans but disheartening to see noisy fans with poor speed regulation. The best pedestal fans I bought in 80s manufactured by a renowned Gujranwala factory which are no longer in production after sad demise of the factory founder.

Sure, local sale and export can be increased if the fans association announces handsome prize for best design of pedestal fan quieter for the volume of air and better regulation of low, medium and high speeds, without sacrificing the present volume of air at high speed.
