Did you know that ceiling fans can help bring down your home's heating and cooling costs? It used to be simple to choose and install a ceiling fan.

Recessed ceiling fans are a great addition to a home. They can keep you cool during hot days and warm during cold days.
By moving the air, warm and cold pockets are removed as the room temperature is balanced. During the winter, when a fan is in reverse, the warm air that has collected at the top of the room is forced down. This balances the temperature throughout the entire space. The fan helps achieve a warmer temperature at the lower level of the room. It is the ventilation of the fans that provide heating and cooling. The ceiling fan brings the room temperature to its average.
A ceiling fan can help bring down your utility costs. Having a new ceiling fan installed permits you to adjust the thermostat a few degrees. The air movement produced by the fan is helping keep a comfortable temperature in the room. This results in saving fuel and electricity costs.
In hot weather, ceiling fans can make a room feel up to 8 degrees cooler by circulating air. As a result, most save on air conditioning bills. In colder weather, they can be used to push hot air down from ceilings. This makes the room more comfortable and lowers heating bills.
There are several types and styles of ceiling fans to choose from. The main differences include how it is to be mounted and type of blade.
Blades: The ventilation is effected by the tilt and the number of blades. Blades that are longer move a higher amount of air at a slower rate. A fan with a higher number of blades is quieter and better balanced, but each blade moves less air. For this reason, most ceiling fans will have 3-5 blades. This is standard. Remember, if you are looking for a fan that offers smooth air-flow and is quiet, then choose the fan with five blades.
Mounts: Deciding where to install your ceiling fan. It is best to have a minimum of eight feet between floor and ceiling fan. When there are vaulted and slanted ceilings, there are drop rod options that you can use. When ceilings are low, then fans are surface mounted. Remember, when ceilings are low, and space is cramped, the fan will not be as effective. In a reduced space there is less area in which the air can be moved around.

These require the replacement of existing electrical boxes for safety. Also, wiring switches to give you full control of the fan and lights can be complicated.
