Once you get your new fan home and installed, you’re going to love it. You’ll get the same great style and versatility that you had with your old fans. People have commented that although they were loath to give up their lovely, old ceiling fans, they like the new ones just as well, or sometimes even better.
Installation of normal ceiling fan is easy but installation of hugger ceiling fans is quite different. There are some instructions for installing hugger fans like while installing pull all the wires straight down and pass them from the opened punched box and then carefully hang the fan motor assembly on the hook of the ceiling. Always connect the wires of hugger fans with properly sized wire nuts. Place a good lock washer and then carefully assemble each blade and then install light bulb if using a light kit. So, go for Hugger fan, if you really want to have a good sleep.
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.
Hugger fans were basically designed for low ceiling but now a day they are used everywhere. They are designed in such a manner that their blades remain away from the floor as they possibly can be and give them more clearance. But because of this design the air circulation is impeded which is one of the major disadvantage of this kind of fans. Also they are not as efficient and effective as other fans are because the blades of hugger ceiling fans are very close to the ceiling. These hugger fans are mostly used where ceiling height is only 8 feet and this height further increases if your furniture height like bed and sofa is also more than regular basis.
Safety - Of course, the safety of your ceiling fan is of the utmost concern. You need to be sure that the fan itself is quality rated and that by installing it you are not going to be overloading any circuits. An overload of the circuits could lead to power outages and even fire.
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.
