Ceiling Fans: Don't Underestimate Their Impact
When you are looking for a cost effective way to make a big impact on a room you should consider ceiling fans. Installing a ceiling fan is a very cost efficient way to make a dramatic change in a room without going broke. This is because most ceiling fans can incorporate several needs in the room with only one purchase. They are also easily installed by the homeowner. Here are some of the benefits that you can get when you install one.
Did you know that when you install your fan you will take the room and make it feel both cooler and warmer? Many people may not know that but it is true. When you install a ceiling fan and set the blades to run clockwise you have set the fan to blow cooler air downwards. You also make the room feel cooler because you are circulated the air throughout the room. When you circulate the room's air you also help the air conditioned air circulate which makes the whole room feel much more comfortable.
If you are running your heat you can set the fan to rotate counter-clockwise. This will help your room feel warmer because you are helping the heated air circulate throughout the room. The counter-clockwise rotation moves the air in the room without cooling the air. This is why you often times see people running their ceiling fans, even in the dead of winter. Just turn the setting switch to reverse and you can help your heater not work as hard.
When you decide to install a ceiling fan you can also add extra lighting in the room. Many fan manufacturers have the lighting already incorporated into the design of the fan or they have lighting kits that you can purchase separately and install yourself. This is a great cost effective way to not only circulate the air in the room but you are also adding overhead lighting at the same time.
Adding to Your DÃÂ©cor
The other thing that you can use your fan to do is to accent the dÃÂ©cor of the room. There are endless choices of styles of fans to choose from and you should be able to find one that ties your room together. For example if you have a room that you have decorated in a tropical design there are fans that are available that have fan blades that are shaped like large palm fronds. They even have fans that you can coordinate with children's rooms that have nice shapes and bold colors making it possible to match any room style.
When you are looking for a cost effective way to make an immediate impact on your room's dÃÂ©cor adding a fan can make all the difference. Not only will it help you to lower your energy bills by circulating the air in the room but you can also add extra overhead lighting to your room. So don't underestimate the impact that ceiling fans can have in your room.
