If you have a stuffy room, one of the best ways to circulate the air is by using a ceiling fan. Air conditioning can cost a lot of money, especially if you have it built into your existing HVAC system. In the summer, the heat can sometimes be unbearable, but the heat can also build up on the inside of your home on cold winter nights. Ceiling fans can be used year round and are more commonly used in warmer climates. Not only will a ceiling fan improve the circulation in a room, but with adding lighting fixtures, you can do a tremendous amount for your room's decor as well.
Depending on the theme of your room, you will find that a ceiling fan is comparably priced in many different types of lighting fixtures. Several different designs are available, including drop fans with extensions and ceiling huggers. Many fans come equipped with built-in lighting fixtures as well. When it comes to attaching a light to your fan, consider the following. How much light do you need in a specific area of a room, task lighting or mood? The size of the fan blades is important as well, and you will need to measure the distance between adjoining walls to ensure there is adequate space, because fan blades vary in length.
Installing the pull chain, and having it electrically wired goes a long way for adding convenience. If you want to install a ceiling fan on your porch, there are sealed fan units available. Remember to purchase an energy-efficient bulb as this will save you money in the long run. Many lighting fixtures do not come with energy-efficient bulbs. A good, powerful fan can pull heat up the stairs into an entrance or return hot air from the ceiling back to a room. Remember as well to ensure that your product complies with all safety standards, matches your decor, and ensures all screws and parts are included. Better still, after the job's all done, sit back with a cold one and enjoy being cool!
