If you’re reading the blog post, you probably noticed that we have a new measurement of airflow shown on our website. CFM is a common abbreviation for Cubic Feet per Minute. This is a measure of how many cubic feet of air a fan moves per minute.
The new measurement is based on our creation. The Q-CFM™.
You’ve probably also noticed that the Q-CFM™ number is about 30% higher than the official (and correct) airflow rating that we obtain through rigorous testing.
We have devised this (tongue in cheek) rating system to counter and illustrate some misleading information. One of our competitors is routinely advertising and using airflow numbers that are well over 30% higher than the official airflow rating that they submit to the California Energy Commission.
So, the Q-CFM™ is an abbreviation for Quackery Cubic Feet per Minute.
If you have any questions about how we measure and report airflow, please feel free to email or call us on the phone. We’re happy to chat.
