Ceiling Fan / April 26, 2018 / Selma Phillips
Turn off air conditioning when using ceiling fans. The majority of energy cost savings comes from using ceiling fans instead of the air conditioner. Ceiling fans use from 50 to 90 watts (not including lights). Compare this to a central air conditioner using 2000 to 3000 watts; a window air conditioner can use 600 to 800 watts. The ceiling fan uses far less energy. As the temperature in your house rises, try to use ceiling fans to keep comfortable. But at some point the fans will not be able to keep you cool. Turn off the ceiling fans and start the air conditioner. The longer you can delay turning on the air conditioner, the more energy you save.
Another popular design is the sports fans. These are not just good for kids but any sports fan. You can find fans with different sports on them like baseball or football. Baseball fans have bat looking blades and a glove for the cover of the motor and some come with a baseball light cover. Craftmade has a soccer fan that has a soccer ball light fixture. There are also fans with colorful blades. You can find them in light colored blades or dark colored blades with white frames. A carousel fan would be perfect for any little girl's room. This fan features a carousel center with circling spot lights and a 52\" blade span. Another good design for girls is the Annabell by the Hunter Ceiling Fan Company. The Annabell features pink and white 44\" blades and has a pink and white light fixture. When it comes to installing a fan in a child's room the most important thing to think about is safety. You should make sure the ceiling fans are very secure and protected against things that may be thrown at it. You should check for and remove any and all pointed parts that could be cause for concern. Also for additional safety for your child, most fans should be operated on low speed.
