Eleonore Mercier Ceiling Fans December 20, 2018 13:34:07
Downrod: A downrod is really a very simple piece of equipment. Made of wood, metal, or plastic, the downrod is simply a rod that hangs from the ceiling, allowing your ceiling fan to hang lower from the ceiling’s surface. Some prefer this only for the look of a lower fan and some would like the breeze of the fan to be stronger, but for either reason a downrod will correctly lower your fan safely and effectively.
After you have fans in all of your rooms, who knows where you’ll go next. Do you have a sun room? A roofed patio or deck? A gazebo? People have been known to put ceiling fans in anywhere they have a ceiling to fasten them to. You will find a selection of fans that are made for outdoor use and resistant to dampness and inclement weather. As you know, it can get too hot outdoors to enjoy sitting on your deck. With a fan, you’ll be able to use your deck any time you like and enjoy it more.
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.
If you have decided to downsize, you might think you want to take your lovely ceiling fans with you when you move. 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.
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.
I myself am a do-it-myself kind of person. I don’t like paying for something I can very well do myself. I have 12 fans in my house, and I installed them all. All, that is, except the very first one. For the first one I called an electrician. The reason for this was that I wanted to make sure I wasn’t going to be overloading any circuits. I had him check my breakers, and I showed him where I wanted to install future fans. Sure, it cost me a hundred bucks to have him come out and install that first fan, but for that hundred bucks I also got a free check on all my other future locations. Now I knew, I could install fans wherever I wanted, and there was going to be no danger of circuit overload. Personally, I think I got a very good deal for that initial $100.
