Another question you may want to ask is, is the fan that you want to install a kit onto worth installing? The reason this is also important is based on the age of the fan you currently have installed. If you have a relatively new fan that has just been installed in the last year or two, this likely won't be a problem. However, if you installed a fan 10 years back and now you want to find a light kit for it - don't bother. Having a fan that is that old means it will be next to impossible to find parts for it. If the fan should break down later after you install your kit, and you can't find the part you need - well, you basically wasted some money there.
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!
The industry has determined that the cooling effect of a ceiling fan can make a room feel at least 7 degrees cooler than it really is and the consequent adjustment to your thermostat can cut your air conditioning related energy costs by as much as 35% to 45%. In the cold months, reversing the fan blades so they push warm air down from the ceiling can reduce your heating expenses as well. Some experts maintain that you can save between 8% to 12% on your heating bill.
