Some people have vaulted ceilings which can make it difficult for installing a ceiling fan of a larger size. It will also make it difficult to position the fan properly if your ceiling is vaulted. Once you have selected the correct type of fan for your ceiling, it will be time to get started. With this tutorial of installing a ceiling fan, if you've never installed a lighting fixture before, you'll want to pay close attention to the instructions listed below.
When picking out ceiling fans, you'll need to consider whether or not you want lighting to come with the fans. Some fans come with light kits on them, while other fans do not. In some cases you may have to pick out the light kit separately as well. There are a variety of different light kits that you can choose from, and you'll want to pick one that will look nice with the fan and offer plenty of light.
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.
Low ceilings require a different type of fan than a high ceiling fan. High ceilings require the fan to have down rods because down rods will circulate the air to the living space. Low ceilings should be fitted with a fan that is flush mount or hugger. A sloped ceiling needs to have an angled mount and you need to make sure that, no matter what type of fan you get, that the blades are at least seven feet up.
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.
