Ceiling Fans

Fancy Fan Blades

Any ceiling fan, if chosen well, can help establish the right ambience in your space. If you spend time, energy, and money decorating your home or office with a certain feeling in mind, why would you be satisfied with an old, ugly ceiling fan? An unsightly ceiling fan can have a negative impact on your decorating, and they’re inefficient, too. One of the best ways to add a little fun and flair to your ceiling fan is to choose a model with fancy blades.

Best Ceiling Fans For Kids Rooms

Children’s rooms are their forts and their lairs. They use them for homework, playing, entertainment, dressing and sleeping. A comfortable environment is important, especially on hot summer nights, and of course a ceiling fan is just the ticket when the temperature threatens to disrupt their sleep.

Five Reasons Why You Should Minimise Your Use of AC

One of the reasons why I think that ceiling fans are such a great addition to Australian homes is that they can help you to cut down on your use of air conditioning. Now, air conditioning is a wonder of technology and it is certainly here to stay, especially as average temperatures rise and summer temperatures become more and more uncomfortable. It’s amazing that we’ve learned to use refrigerant to remove heat from relatively cool areas (like our houses) and discharge it into relatively hot areas (like our gardens). Air conditioning is clever and effective, but it’s not without its disadvantages.

How Ceiling Fans Work

Whether you’re thinking of adding a light to an existing ceiling fan or you’d like to take a shot at repairing a fan that’s having difficulties, it helps to know how they are typically assembled and how they work. It’s good to be familiar with the names of the parts when you’re talking to ceiling fan professionals, too. The basic parts have been the same for decades, but the designs of the blades and the motors have seen vast improvement in the past fifteen years, and today’s ceiling fans are more efficient and effective than ever. Here’s a quick summary of a typical ceiling fan assembly.

Why Reverse Direction On a Ceiling Fan?

I recently read an article on a green building web site that said ceiling fans are a waste of energy, and of course, I strongly disagree with the author’s conclusions. Here’s the truth.

Pub Style Ceiling Fans

Every pub needs a little or a lot of draught, whether by tap, open door or fan. Sometimes the air just needs to move.

Non-Stodgy Traditional Ceiling Fans

Let’s clear something up right now. Traditional ceiling fans are the ones that don’t include lighting. In the past, they didn’t work all that well and they weren’t much to look at. They were dull brown on brown flat-bladed machines with a chain that you couldn’t quite reach. It doesn’t have to be that way anymore. Today, you can get traditional good looks and efficiency.

Ceiling Fans vs. Air Conditioning: Electricity Use

Can ceiling fans save energy? Absolutely. Central Air Conditioning (AC) uses around 3500 watts of electricity per day, an AC window unit uses between 600 and 1500 watts and a ceiling fan uses between 30 and 50 watts, so it’s quite a savings! However, there are a few caveats involved in saving the maximum amount of energy and still staying cool.
