Ceiling fans are slow-rotating mechanical fans suspended from the ceiling that help to circulate the air around the room to improve the air circulation and can help keep energy bills low. There are various types of ceiling fans for both indoor and outdoor applications, with the ability to adjust some models according to variations in temperature and humidity. Some ceiling fans are also fitted with lights for both practical and aesthetical reasons. Many ceiling light fans benefit from LED lighting, helping the environment and keeping costs low.
Standard ceiling fans can typically be found in homes, featuring five blades and a built-in lighting fixture, most commonly LED, with a variety of operating mechanisms often controlled by a wall switch.
Low profile fans should be used in rooms which have ceilings that are less than eight feet tall. Instead of using a down rod, the fan is installed directly onto the mounting bracket, which keeps it at the required seven feet above the floor.
Energy Star-rated fans have efficient motors and aerodynamic blades that helps them use less energy. A standard energy-saving ceiling fan is 20 percent more efficient and will be 50 percent more efficient if integrated lights are also chosen.
Dual Motor fans have two motors, with a central motor housing attached to two horizontal rods. Each rod has its own adjustable fan head.
Remote Control fans are a perfect choice for people who aren't tall enough to reach a traditional ceiling fans pull cords, remote-controlled fans allow you to adjust the speed and direction of the blades at your convenience. This option is also great for rooms that have high ceilings and either no down-rod or a down-rod that simply isn't long enough.
