Elisamarie Lambert Ceiling Fans March 26, 2019 07:53:55
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.
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.
Blade irons/brackets: Blade irons attach your ceiling fan blades to the motor, connecting the fan together after it is mounted.
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.
If you think Ceiling fans are a thing from the past, and that they have been made obsolete by air conditioning units, you’re wrong. Please don’t take it personally, most people think exactly the same as you - but it still doesn’t make it right. Heating and cooling systems are something that people have looked for since the dawn of time (well, at least since the human race started worrying about comfort). Thousands of years ago, ancient civilizations were already using fan systems to move the air around, to cool them down. Of course, back then this was something only the most powerful and influent people could afford, the majority of the population had to deal with heat and cold any other way they could. Thousands of years had to go by until the rest of the population could use similar fan systems to turn their homes more comfortable. It was the introduction of the ceiling fans. Although not as "exotic" as having someone slowly fanning some palm tree leafs over your head, ceiling fans are much more efficient at moving air. And everyone knows how much better it feels to have a breeze blowing over you on those hot summer days. Even though the air is at the exact same temperature as its surrounding environment, the air movement has a chill affect that helps lower the skin temperature. Think of it as traveling in your car on a hot summer day with the windows full open... doesn’t it feel good? That’s exactly the same thermodynamic principle that has been known for thousands of years - well before cars were invented.
