On the positive side, you can find just about every make and model on any number of websites. Because it's relatively easy to list an item, many websites display everything the ceiling fan manufacturer has to offer. Most good websites will also provide specifications and other relevant information about each listing.

Lights can be added while mounting the fan, and there are three types of lighting methods to choose from: downlights, uplights, or one of the popular light kits. Uplights and downlights are just as they sound with uplights pointing toward the ceiling, and downlights pointing toward the center of the room. Each provides a slightly different effect. Uplights emanate an aura-like gleam to dress up a ceiling, and downlights brighten an entire room with a radiant glow. Light kits also come with many ceiling fans and can be classified as a type of downlight. The light kit replaces any central lighting that was previously hanging from the ceiling.

While many are conscientious and put the customer's needs first, there are some that will try to push an overstocked model on you or sell you a fan that gives them a higher commission. On the positive side, when you are dealing with a local brick and mortar store, customer service is usually good and you can often get some pretty good advice from employees that are familiar with these products. I have mixed feelings about buying ceiling fans from home centers. Many home centers appeal to buyers because they believe that this is the place to get discounts and save money. While this may be true, the quality of the merchandise that is available may be the trade-off.
Glenna Gillespie Ceiling Fan, 2017-11-29 21:31:17. Ceiling fans are a popular room addition; comfort can be easily obtained with a flip of a switch. An immediate cooling breeze is created by an electric motor with rotating blades. That motor uses electricity. Ceiling fan motors are not large, but energy can be wasted. Read on for tips on operating your ceiling fans so that you can be comfortable and save home energy. Ceiling fans have a cooling effect, but do not cool. Ceiling fans do not directly change the temperature of the air; therefore, they do not cool or heat. The benefit comes from how the human body cools itself. As air velocity increases across the skin, moisture (sweat) on the skin evaporates quicker. This cools the body faster; we feel cooler. As you increase you activity, you need to evaporate more sweat. The air blowing from a ceiling fan can provide great help.

Although a larger fan is going to be more expensive than a smaller model, it will have more power and longer durability. This will keep the ceiling fan running without so much as a wobble or noise from wearing down. Another purchase factor is the overall durability and performance of a ceiling fan. Take into consideration the size, shape and pitch of the fan blades. Also consider the height distance between a ceiling fan and the actual ceiling in a room. If the ceiling fan is going to run too close to the ceiling, it will undoubtedly affect how the fan operates. Ceiling fans are available in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and colors. Taking the time to become educated on all the different variations of ceiling fans will ensure the right fit for any home or office.

However, if the fan is wobbly after installation, make sure that all connections are properly aligned and tightly fastened. Hold a yardstick vertically along the edges of the blades to check their alignment. If a blade is misaligned, try gently bending the misaligned blade holder into proper position. If all blades are aligned, use a balancing kit to correct the problem. These kits are either provided with the fan or can be sent by the manufacturer. Ceiling fans can weigh as much as 50 pounds, so most ceilings need to be braced to support the additional weight.

It is advised to use the appropriate UL-listed metal outlet box marked \"For Use with Ceiling Fans.\" The box is mounted above the ceiling and houses all wiring needed to operate and connect the ceiling fan. If you are replacing a ceiling fixture, most likely you will need to replace the electrical box. To avoid complications, it is best to hire a licensed electrician to install the ceiling fan. Be sure to check references, and make sure the contractor is properly insured and holds the proper certification.

Some fans come with light kits on them, while other fans do not. In some cases you may have to pick out the light kit separately as well. There are a variety of different light kits that you can choose from, and you'll want to pick one that will look nice with the fan and offer plenty of light.

Sure, they provide that extra cooling power in summer, but did you know that you can use your fan in winter, too? That's right. A ceiling fan can also help to make the hot air from your heater rise in winter, as well. All you have to do is to reverse the rotation of the blades. Just hit the switch and make your blades move counterclockwise. This cause the fan to pull the air instead of push it. This is especially beneficial if you live in a two-story home. Myself, I do live in a two story house, and I find that on moderate winter days I can pull the hot air from downstairs and thus not have to use the upstairs heater at all. Since first discovering this simple technique, I have cut my electricity bill in winter by 25%. Yes, it really works!

The size of the room determines the span of the blade you should be looking for. You'll find blade spans that range between 29\" to 56\". The smallest blade span will work for a room that is no bigger than 50 square feet while a 36\" blade span will service an area of approximately 70' to 80' square feet. Larger rooms, such as 100 square feet need at least a 42\" blade span and a room that is larger than 100 square feet should have a fan with the longest blade span you can find.
