Robinette Boulanger Ceiling Fans January 20, 2019 13:34:11
Functionality - Contrary to popular belief, ceiling fans are not for the hot-weather months alone. 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!
Once your fan is mounted you can add lights to make your ceiling fan serve more than one purpose and be an even better addition to your home. 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.
Warranty - Make sure you fan comes with a factory warranty. Personally, I never buy extended warranties. Mathematical formulas have shown that once you buy a certain number of appliances, your costs for purchasing additional warranties will begin to exceed the benefits, even if one or two of your appliances wind up going bad. Just like with insurance, warranties have a formula, and it just makes good sense to be on the winning side of that formula.
Mounting: The first step with a new ceiling fan is mounting, which simply refers to the attachment of your ceiling fan to the surface of a ceiling. To make it easier it is a good idea to become familiar with a few terms and options when choosing the right ceiling fan for you. This will ensure that your fan will hang properly and as low as you would like it to. Mounting also effects the operation of a ceiling fan in certain ways. Certain methods of mounting allow for the fan to more closely direct air to the people in a room and some methods allow for more flexibility in movement.
As there is lot of competition in every field which results in great technology advancement, ceiling fan industry has also developed a number of product. So, there are various styles and designs available in the market for hugger ceiling fans. This has also resulted in decrease in the rate of fans and companies are offering huge discounts.
There are times when the weather just isn’t quite hot enough to merit turning on the expensive air-conditioning, but you still need a little air movement in your home to make it feel more comfortable. That’s when a ceiling fan is perfect. If you don’t have air conditioning at all, then you’ll be even more appreciative of a quiet, unobtrusive way of cooling off. Although the interior designers on home improvement shows tend to scoff at having ceiling fans, they are a practical and comforting addition to any room.
