|Revolution Speed (RPM - Revolutions per Minute)||Air Flow (CFM - Cubic Feet of Air Flow per Minute)||Electricity (Watts - Electricity used not including any Lights)||Efficiency (CFM/Watt - Cubic Feet of Air Flow per Minute per Watt used - higher is better)||AMPs (Amperage of Electrical Current used)|
|Efficiency is the cubic feet of air that can be moved in one minute if the fan were to use 1 watt of electricity, and can be used to compare energy-efficiency among different ceiling fans. The higher this number the more energy-efficient the fan is. This ceiling fan's airflow efficiency is about average, compared to fans with a 52" blade span. By comparison, other regular-sized ceiling fans with a 52" blade span typically provide an airflow efficiency ranging from 71 to 100 cubic feet per minute per watt.|
A ceiling fan is a fairly large ceiling-mounted fan which can rotate clockwise or anticlockwise. In one direction the fan blows air downward, while in the other it draws air upwards. Some fans come equipped with a light fixture to double as a central light. The fan is a hardwired fixtures so has to be installed electrically. Typically it is used with a wall switch or remote control. Ceiling fans can help keep you cool in summer and also warmer in winter by circulating the air.
The Arts and Crafts movement gave rise to the popularity of Craftsman design, in addition to Mission revival and the Prairie architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright. Mission Style Lighting is defined by the use of art glass with geometric shapes, solid materials, natural woods, and understated design elements that radiate substance and tranquility.
A ceiling fan needs enough headroom, so is ideal over some furniture such as a couch, seating area or bed. See hugger fans for maximizing headroom. Fans are most often used in living rooms, family rooms and bedrooms, where people might be dwelling for a longer period of time.
A fan is best positioned either centrally in the room or above a main seating or sleeping area. If the fan has a light it can help to light the room. We recommend adding either wall lights or some lamps to fill out the space.
Attaches to a ceiling. The ceiling should be flat, unless the fan supports sloped/vaulted ceilings. A small canopy will conceal the electrical installation.
An electrician or person with electrical installation knowledge will need to permanently wire the ceiling fan into the building's electrical supply.
