In our years working in this field we have come to find out that many people have no idea how to install a ceiling fan. To be clear, it is not an EASY project. However, it is also not terribly difficult. You just need to take your time, follow the manufacturer's instructions and keep cool and collected. That's what we are here to help you do!
First of all, when you are trying to find the best fans for your home, you will want to consider the size. Ceiling fans can be found in a variety of different sizes; however, the size of the room you are buying for will definitely influence this decision. If you are buying fans for a smaller room, then you'll want to go for a smaller fan. However, for larger fans, you'll need something that moves a bit more air, so a large fan, like a 50-54 inch fan, is a great choice.
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!
Another popular design is the sports fans. These are not just good for kids but any sports fan. You can find fans with different sports on them like baseball or football. Baseball fans have bat looking blades and a glove for the cover of the motor and some come with a baseball light cover. Craftmade has a soccer fan that has a soccer ball light fixture.
So, you're sold on the idea of installing ceiling fans. The next step is to decide what brand, style, etc. you're going to invest your money in. Do the research. Find out who the major players are in the manufacture of ceiling fans and how long they've been at it. It's not necessarily who sells the most ceiling fans but rather, what consumers say about the various brands. The Internet can help but you have to be wary about sales pitches that are disguised as testimonials. My personal preference is Westinghouse because of a multitude of factors that I'm not going to get into since this article is intended to focus more on the installation end of the ceiling fan rather than what to buy.
