Benefits of Ceiling Fans
You don’t just have to use your ceiling fan during a sweltering South Florida summer. While your new fan will definitely provide cooling comfort during the warmer months, you can also use it during the winter as well. By running your fan in a clockwise motion, it will pull down warm air from the heater that gets trapped near your ceiling. Because air conditioners and heaters don’t have to work as hard in a home with ceiling fans, energy bills can drop substantially.
Do You Need a Ceiling Fan with Lights?
There are many different styles of ceiling fans on the market; some come with lights and others without. You need to consider the following when deciding whether or not you want lights on your fan:
- Whether or not the room in which the fan will be located has sufficient lighting.
- Whether or not someone with poor vision will be using the fan.
- Whether or not the fan will be in a well-traveled area of the home.
- Whether or not you want to get rid of any free-standing light fixtures in the room.
Using a Professional for Ceiling Fan Installation
It is important that you call a technician for your ceiling fan installation, since it is hard wired to your home’s electrical system. If you try to perform this kind of work on your own, or you call an unqualified electrician, serious damage to your home’s wiring could result – and that, of course, could lead to a risk of fire. Also, if the installation is not done properly, that could cause a short circuit where the fan does not work as it should.
A ceiling fan installation is not as easy as you may think. Because a ceiling fan has a motor that, in some models, is quite heavy, you may find it difficult to properly position the fan. If that happens, then it will not work as it is designed and will very likely be quite noisy.
However, the trained technicians with Reliable Electrical Services know how to securely position a fan, and will know that you need the correct size of electrical junction box to support it. If you have a ceiling fan with lights, your technician will know how to wire those lights correctly.
