Did you know that you should run your ceiling fan counterclockwise in summer so that the air is pushed straight down and in the winter the fan should run clockwise to pull the air up toward the ceiling.
Fans have more than one purpose. They circulate the air, enhance the decor, and provide light.
CONTROL - A fan can be controlled with a pull chain, a switch/dimmer, or a handheld wi-fi remote control device. LIGHT KIT & BLADES - They can have light kits and the blades may vary in width and length. FAN ARM - The fan blades are connected to the fan arms. FAN MOTOR & HOUSING - The motor is enclosed in the housing. DOWN ROD - This rod makes it possible to adjust the fan's height in increments of 6" usually. If you have a low ceiling, consider purchasing a flush mount fan. CANOPY - The canopy is the circular cap that fits against the ceiling to hide the wiring.
When shopping for a fan, there are three things to consider.
1. Where is the fan going, indoor or outdoor? An outdoor fan is made to withstand moisture.
2. How wide is the fan and how high is the ceiling? The blade span can begin at 24 inches.
3. What is the motor type? There is AC or DC motor power to consider.
