3 Reasons to Use Ceiling Fans
- Ceiling fans accentuate any room of the house and provide air flow to cool you down when the air temperature is warm. They boost the efficiency of air conditioners by circulating the cooling air over larger areas.
- They also do the same thing for heaters in the winter. By reversing the fan motor, the blades push the warm air (which rises) downward. This allows your heater to work less, saving you money on your heating and cooling bills.
- Some fans are rated for outdoor use. This gives you the perfect addition to a patio when the stale summer nights don’t move much air around. Perfect for parties and barbecues to keep air flowing and your friends and relatives cool.
Things to Look for When Purchasing a Ceiling Fan
No fan is the same as the next. Each has different characteristics and abilities. You need to consider each option before you make a purchase carefully.
- Fan blade size: Some fans are smaller while others span several feet. You need to decide if the room is large enough to accommodate the blades.
- Mounting area: Some fans won’t work well on sloped ceilings. Some require extra down rods.
- Lighting: Some fans come with lights, some come with lighting ability and others are fans only. If you need lights, you need to ensure your fan purchase either have them already or requires a light kit.
Precautions to Consider
All fans will need some assembly as well as mounting. As such you need to decide if you have the necessary abilities or if you should hire professional help for installation. You will be using basic tools such as a screwdriver or drill. You may be using power tools such as a drill as well.
Most importantly though, you will be working with electrical wires connected to switches and breakers. It is important to take the necessary precautions when dealing with electricity. You should always know which wires are grounded, neutral and hot.
Ensure all electricity to the switch and wires is off. If you are ever unsure, consult an electrician. Always use the proper equipment and turn off the breakers before starting the mounting procedures.
Depending on the ceiling height, you may find yourself on a ladder as well. You should always make sure the ladder is stable and can support yours and the weight of the fan. You should never work on a ladder above your head. Always have someone with you to support the ladder in case it ever becomes unstable.
Your safety is always first.
