Fanette Legrand Ceiling Fans March 26, 2019 07:54:01
Before you purchase a ceiling fan, you should do plenty of research on the internet. Always keep in mind, all ceiling fans are not created equal. To ensure the highest energy efficiency and the best product for the job, choose a Hunter ceiling fan. You won’t regret your decision.
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.
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.
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.
A down rod is nothing more than an extension, really. The higher your ceiling, the longer you want the down rod to be. If you have ten foot ceilings, you should have a one-foot down rod. Down rods increase total airflow and bring the blades themselves closer to where you need it.
Hugger Mounting: Hugger model fans are simply fans mounted close to the ceiling, that will seem as though they are clinging to or "hugging" the ceiling directly. This can also be referred to as the close-to-ceiling-mount.
