Before you go to all the work of taking them down, however, check to make sure that they'll actually fit into your new home. Chances are that if the fans were purchased for larger rooms with higher ceilings, they aren't going to fit the smaller space in your new residence. Even if the light fixtures in your new home look lovely, they aren't going to make up for the lack of your favorite ceiling fans. However, there's just no way you can use the old ones. If you hung one of them people would be sure to run into it, so you might as well be nice and leave the old fans in your old house. Putting them into storage wouldn't solve a thing. There are much more appropriate fans on the market, and you're going to find some to love in more low profile models.

Airplane ceiling fans come in many different types of planes. The Fantasy Flyer fan seems to be among the most popular. The plain is blue with some red and gray, it is the authentic replica of F4U Corsair. The wings of the fan are set against the ceiling and the blades are the propellers. Other popular kids ceiling fans include the Warbird series made by Craftmade. The Miss America features the colors of the American flag, red, white and blue with white stars. The blades are 48\" and white. The Tiger Shark has a shark mouth as the motor cover, a red nose with a light at the tip and 48\" black blades.

The average purchaser is going down to their favorite home improvement store to choose their new fan or lighting fixture or even making their choice on the internet. They come to a lighting specialty store or showroom only after being overwhelmed by the choices in the home improvement stores aisles which provide little if any service or assistance.

This fact is not lost on the ceiling box manufacturers that are producing ceiling, outlet and junction boxes that are quick to install and are made of plastics that require less and less labor to install properly. This has gotten to the point that there is now a lighting box that only needs to be pushed onto a wooden stud for it to be secured; no fasteners are needed at all! The ceiling fan manufacturers however may not be keeping pace with the trend in ceiling box installation practices. They advise the consumer of their products to reinforce or replace the existing fixture with a fan-rated ceiling box which is prudent, though are the consumers heeding their installation directives?

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.

The installation instructions for many of the fans available today show a metal type box that has screws going through the box and into blocking above the box. This is not what is installed in most of the newer construction homes which use the labor saving nail-on products. As a general rule builders and contractors do not provide blocking above the ceiling box with a nail-on product as the added material & labor is not cost effective.

When in doubt, select a fan that has a separate lighting kit available that can be added at a later time should you decide that you need more light. Check out the ceiling height of the room. Low ceilings will limit the type of ceiling fans you can choose while high ceilings may require some modifications such as a down rod to install the ceiling fan so it is only 7 or 8 feet from the floor. Make sure that the style of ceiling fan complements the décor of the room. Ceiling fans come in a wide variety of styles and themes and you should have no trouble narrowing down your options.
Selma Phillips Ceiling Fan, 2017-10-14 17:06:42. What is it you should be looking for when choosing a ceiling fan? Of course there are many factors, but just like choosing any other home appliance, like a refrigerator or a washer/dryer, you should be thinking of not only decor and style, but functionality as well. Here I will go over the many different aspects, some tangible, some intangible, of choosing the right ceiling fan for you.
Bernadette Aguilar Ceiling Fan, 2017-10-15 20:52:03. The choice of fans today is greater than at any time in past 5 to 10 years. Many of the major brands are also selling products in the home improvement market. Companies like Hunter are distributing several models in Home Depot this trend is expected to increase as they gain market share. Numerous manufacturers have been paying attention to this trend in the consumer market and are providing fans that meet the needs of today's consumer. The ease of assembly and use of pre-assembled components speed the installation of their products.

There is a surge in energy when starting the fan motor, but it quickly drops as the fan blades reach their full speed. However, leaving the fan on when not needed still uses far more energy than that short burst of startup energy. Air should blow up in the winter. The only benefit to running the fan in the winter is to breakup warm air collected along the ceiling. In the winter, lighter warm air rises to the ceiling. If this air cannot go anywhere, it becomes a still layer of warm air. You are paying to keep the space near your ceiling warmer than the rest of the room. This is a waste of energy. Running the ceiling fan, blowing upwards, will drive that warmer air back down to the portion of the room you want warm.
