Everyone is a fan of ceiling fans. They keep you cool on the warm summer days and circulate the air in the stuffiest of areas. Plus, they look pretty cool too. In bronze and bamboo, koa and chrome too, it's easy to get a handle on why people want to hang with these fans. Some like them contemporary. Others prefer the classic. Ceiling fans have come a long way. They could have become a relic of the pre-AC days, but instead they find place in the home because they offer aesthetic value and complement the state of the air in your home.
An added bonus: the white noise. While many ceiling fans operate in near silence, there's still a rattle and hum that soothes the soul when it comes time to lay down for the summer siesta. It's almost hypnotic.

Buying a ceiling fan part one: matching the fan to your space
Buying a ceiling fan isn't just a matter of picking out the design you like best; in fact, that part comes later. In order for ceiling fans to be most effective, it's essential that you first select a fan to match your space. Before you even start to think about styles and finishes, though, you must determine how your space will be influencing your purchase decision.
Buying a ceiling fan part two: matching the fan to your preferences
In my last post about ceiling fans, you learned how to match a fan to your room's size and ceiling height. Now it’s time to dive into the fun stuff! Choose a fan that will complement your room's style and your own personal preferences by considering these three factors.
A: Rotate your fans in a counterclockwise direction to push the air down, creating a wind chill effect. Conversely, clockwise motion pulls cooler air up, which displaces the warmer air that is usually trapped near the ceiling. For additional info please refer to our Ceiling Fan Buying Guide.
A: Ceiling fans work best to supplement the HVAC system in your home, thus saving you energy. Ideally you can run your furnace or air conditioning at a lower setting with a fan. The level of efficiency also depends on the blade pitch and the size of the motor. Steeper blade pitches need bigger motors to move through the air. They move more air, but the bigger motor uses more energy. Ceiling fans generally cost less to operate than an average incandescent light bulb. Shop our assortment of Energy Star rated fans for maximum energy savings. Remember that ceiling fans cool people, not rooms. So turn off the fan when you leave the room.
Q: Can you mount a ceiling fan on a sloped ceiling?
A: Some fans come equipped with a bracket adapter that makes them easier to mount on a sloped ceiling with downrods that help it clear the wall. You'll still want to make sure your fan is the ideal 8 feet above the floor. If they don't have the adapter, they can't mount on a sloped ceiling.
