Ceiling Fan Selection Tips

A properly installed fan can compliment your air conditioner by letting it run less. This improves efficiency and is better for the environment -not to mention the money you save on energy bills. Ceiling fans can also be beneficial during the winter months -with a quick switch in direction, your fan will push the warmer air at the ceiling back down to spread throughout the room.

Another advantage to installing a ceiling fan is room decor. Put that finishing touch on your favorite room without sacrificing space for a floor standing or desk fan. With modern design and improved mechanics, your ceiling fan can become a feature of a room without being noisy or an eyesore. They are also safer for kids and pets.

In Ceiling Fan Selection, There Are 5 Points to Take into Consideration:

  1. Blade Pitch -The wider the blade and higher the angle, the more air gets moved.
  2. Blade Finish -Make sure the factory has treated the blades with a moisture sealant to prevent wooden blades from warping and peeling, and metal blades from scratching and tarnishing.
  3. Motor Quality -Fans that come with motors with sealed and lubricated ball bearings require less maintenance, if any.
  4. Energy Star Rated -Energy Star-rated fans are 50% more efficient than conventional ones.
  5. Installation -This is very important when deciding where you want your fan located in your room as well as ensuring optimal efficiency.
