For decades ceiling fans have held an aura of romance and mystery about them even as they helped lower the apparent temperature in a room before air conditioning became prevalent. Today, these types of fans are chosen by homeowners for their cooling capabilities, their appearance and their money-saving benefits. While ceiling fans won’t cool a hot room as efficiently as air conditioning can, they’ll definitely help it feel cooler as the air circulates. They also help rid the air of moisture. Using ceiling fans for cooling rather than air conditioning also saves money. It’s a smart decision to install a ceiling fan in a kitchen or dining room, a bedroom, bathroom or living room, or on a porch or deck.
When choosing a ceiling fan a homeowner needs to take several factors into consideration. The size of the room is the most important factor. Fans that are too small for the room they’re place in are inefficient, while fans that are too large visually overpower the room, making them seem even smaller. The edges of the fan’s blades should ideally be at least 24 inches from any walls, windows or curtains. Fans installed outdoors or in a bathroom need to be properly rated to handle the moisture in the air. Bathroom fans are usually rated ‘damp’ while outdoor fans should be rated ‘wet’ because their motors and other electrical components have to stand up to rain. A fan that isn’t properly rated will quickly short out under moist conditions.
