Typical amperage draw based on motor size:
|Motor Size||120 volts||240 volts|
|1/4 hp.||6 amp.||3 amp.|
|1/3 hp.||7 amp.||3½ amp.|
|1/2 hp.||10 amp.||5 amp.|
Ceiling fan horse power ratings:
The majority of modern ceiling fans use less than an amp, averaging between 0.5 and 1 amp, depending on the model and the setting. One amp drawn by a ceiling fan is equivalent to about 120 watts. Low settings use less amperage while higher settings use more. Horse power ratings vary from 1/60 to 1/3 hp and should work with any ILLUMRA relays.
