|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 below average, compared to fans with a larger than 52" blade span. By comparison, other large-sized ceiling fans with larger than a 52" blade span typically provide an airflow efficiency ranging from 52 to 97 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.
Informal and comfortable, this relaxed style accentuates an airy and unpretentious living space, evoking the feeling of a permanent beach cottage vacation. Casual Lighting uses clean and simple lines, subtle curves, natural textures, and decorative glass for a subtle elegance that doesn’t overwhelm the senses.
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.
