About Ceiling Fans

Ceiling fans, unlike air conditioning and heating systems, don’t change the temperature of the air but circulate it making us feel cooler in the summer or warmer in the winter. The effects delivered by fans help reduce electricity costs throughout the year. Ceiling fans can provide summertime savings on air conditioning expenses of as much as 40% and winter time heating cost savings of as much as 10 % according to several studies. In most cases the cost of the installation will pay for itself in a short amount of time.

Ceiling Fans, Selecting the Summer or Winter Direction of Spin

During the hot Mesa summer nothing can beat the cool breeze that ceiling fans deliver. A counter clock wise or forward setting of your ceiling fan’s direction will create a “wind chill” effect through downward airflow making you feel as much as 8 degrees cooler. Several studies have shown that this cooling effect enables people to raise thermostat settings saving as much as 40% in air conditioning energy costs.

During the winter months a reverse or clock wise direction with your fans set at the low speed will create a gentile updraft, pushing the hot air trapped at the top throughout the lower living area of your room. This re-circulation of hotter air warms the lower area allowing you to lower your thermostat settings with energy saving as high a 10%.

To achieve even further savings on electricity remember to turn off your fans when no one is in the room. Circulating air in an empty room provides no benefit.

Besides adding beauty and value to your home, the installation of ceiling fans also provide long term energy savings. Now that you have decided to install ceiling fans in your home let’s look at some important factors.

Choosing the Right Size for Your Rooms

Most electrical contractors and manufactures recommend the following sizing:

  • 30 inch fans accommodate 50 square feet or less
  • 36 inch fans accommodate between 50 and 100 square feet
  • 42 inch fans accommodate between 100 to 200 square feet
  • 52 inch fans accommodate between 200 to 400 square feet

To determine the size of your room multiply the length of the room by the width of the room. This will give you the square footage of the room.

How Far Above The Floor Should They Be Installed At?

Ceiling fans are most efficient when they are installed between 8 and 10 feet above the floor, this is the recommended height most manufactures list on the box . Flat ceilings near 8 feet in height should utilize huger style fans to keep them as high up from the floor as possible. Taller and angled ceilings will need a down rod to achieve the correct height and vertical alignment.

Choosing the Right Style and Type for My Home

This can often times be the most challenging part. With numerous styles, colors and options available, choosing your ceiling fans can be a time consuming task. Outdoor applications should utilize outdoor rated fans because they are water resistant, have stainless steel screws that won’t rust and the fan blades are designed to handle weather so they won’t droop over time.

We always recommend looking for ceiling fans with the ENERGY STAR rating for further efficiency and long term energy savings. If you are looking for fans with lighting built in, consider the use of dimmer controls because they will help you save money by reducing electricity usage. Because your personal taste is important to your satisfaction we encourage you to select your own ceiling fans and we will be happy to install them for you.
