Tiffney Marechal Ceiling Fans January 21, 2019 11:23:35
You may well find that after trying a low profile fan in one room in your house you’ll want to go out and purchase them for all the other rooms, too. They just seem to add a special touch to the décor of any room, and they certainly make your living environment a lot more comfortable.
Ceiling fans come in all styles, everything from antique to tropical to modern. They come in all colors, ranging from gold to white, silver, red, green, whatever color suits your style. They also come in all kinds of materials, like brass, bronze, and even chrome. When choosing a ceiling fan for you, remember, a good fan not only matches the decor of your room, it can anchor it and bring it all together.
Functionality - Contrary to popular belief, ceiling fans are not for the hot-weather months alone. Sure, they provide that extra cooling power in summer, but did you know that you can use your fan in winter, too? That’s right. A ceiling fan can also help to make the hot air from your heater rise in winter, as well. All you have to do is to reverse the rotation of the blades. Just hit the switch and make your blades move counterclockwise. This cause the fan to pull the air instead of push it. This is especially beneficial if you live in a two-story home. Myself, I do live in a two story house, and I find that on moderate winter days I can pull the hot air from downstairs and thus not have to use the upstairs heater at all. Since first discovering this simple technique, I have cut my electricity bill in winter by 25%. Yes, it really works!
Ball and socket mounting: This is a type of mounting where a ball-shaped apparatus is attached to a downrod, with the fan body and blades hanging from the ball. This makes it possible for the fan to move easier than it would with other methods of mounting.
Mounting: The first step with a new ceiling fan is mounting, which simply refers to the attachment of your ceiling fan to the surface of a ceiling. To make it easier it is a good idea to become familiar with a few terms and options when choosing the right ceiling fan for you. This will ensure that your fan will hang properly and as low as you would like it to. Mounting also effects the operation of a ceiling fan in certain ways. Certain methods of mounting allow for the fan to more closely direct air to the people in a room and some methods allow for more flexibility in movement.
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.
