Robinette Boulanger Ceiling Fans January 22, 2019 07:48:49
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.
There are 2 types of outdoor ceiling fans, those rated for DAMP locations and those rated for WET locations. There is a notable difference between the two and it is important that you choose the right type for your application. In either case, make sure the fan you purchase is UL Listed for the application you need so that you know it can be safely installed without creating a potential electrical hazard.
Decor - Installing a ceiling fan can change the decor of any room, large or small. Palm-leaf fans can make your outdoor space or patio look more like the tropics, while a rustic, bronze fan can accent your traditional style living room or bedroom. Whatever the decor, there is a fan made for it. A fan is a wonderful complement that can really bring any room together.
Warranty - Make sure you fan comes with a factory warranty. Personally, I never buy extended warranties. Mathematical formulas have shown that once you buy a certain number of appliances, your costs for purchasing additional warranties will begin to exceed the benefits, even if one or two of your appliances wind up going bad. Just like with insurance, warranties have a formula, and it just makes good sense to be on the winning side of that formula.
Did you know that by using your ceiling fan year-round, it is possible to save as much as 40% off your air conditioning costs, and in winter, can save up to 10% on your heating bill? If this sounds good to you, it may be time to purchase one or more ceiling fans for your home.
When you purchase a Hunter ceiling fan, you will have the peace of mind knowing that your ceiling fan is backed by a limited Lifetime Motor Warranty. The WhipserWind motor is available for most models of Hunter ceiling fans, and it transports mega-powerful air movement. Combined with the whisper quiet performance of the Hunter ceiling fan, you can’t find a better value.
