Ceiling Fans – Questions and answers
Below are some frequently asked questions when it comes to ceiling fans.
- Why do I need a ceiling fan? Ceiling fans provide 2 different services; they create a breeze, and circulate air, making them useful in both hot and cold weather.
- Do ceiling fans lower the temperature? No they don’t – they are only cooling the moving air which will make you feel cooler no matter the temperature, but the circulation from a fan can help disperse the cool air – from an air conditioner – around the room.
- How do ceiling fans help in winter? The same with cooling they can circulate warm air from your heating – hot air rises, so fans can help move the heat where it’s needed – lower down in a room.
- What rooms should have fans? The electricians in Sydney from Electrician To The Rescue can install fans in any room in your home – it’s entirely up to you. Any room can benefit from a ceiling fan, the rooms you spend most of your time in can benefit from the installation of a ceiling fan most.
- How many blades do I need? Ceiling fans come with anything from 2 to 8 blades although fans with less than 3 and more than 6 blades are just a *novelty*. People assume the more blades you have will move more air. However, that’s incorrect: more blades create more work for the motor making it run at a slower speed. This means that a fan with fewer blades will move faster than a fan with more blades, so overall 3-4 blades are quite sufficient.
- Ceiling fans with lights? Ceiling fans with lighting have become more popular in recent years and it’s a lot easier to install a ceiling fan where there is existing lighting than where there isn’t. If you are considering replacing or updating your current lighting, a ceiling fan with lighting included could be a great way to update your lighting and take advantage of all of the benefits of a ceiling fan.
