Some people may feel that ceiling fans have had their day. Sure, air conditioning might be the more cool option, but ceiling fans still have just as important a role to play as ever.
What are the benefits of installing ceiling fans? Does every room of the house really need one?
Let’s take a quick look at why every room should have a ceiling fan.
They Look Great
OK, we hear you. Not all styles of ceiling fans look great.
But there are so many styles now available on the market that can elevate the appearance of your interiors!
We’re talking wood effect, modern designs incorporating chandeliers, and designs inspired by aeronautics. Not only are they super-practical, but they’re also now super beautiful. They’re making a comeback in a big way, so make sure you’re not left behind.
Creates a Focal Point
Install a fan in every room in the house and you immediately provide a strong focal point.
It could be a large, imposing statement fan in the living room. Or a smaller, less obtrusive look in the bedroom. Whichever you choose, the right fan sets the tone for the room.
There are strong, industrial looks that suit dens, playrooms, home gyms, and studies. A basement man cave can be elevated by installing a fan that provides an edgy look.
Keep You Cool
This might sound obvious, but there is actually something very comfortable about the gentle breeze that a ceiling fan creates.
Depending on where you live, fans can create a gently cooled environment that keeps you comfortable in summer. However, in areas where temperatures hit the heights in summer, you may need to combine it with AC.
More Energy Efficient Models Available
As with all technology, ceiling fans have moved on and are now more energy-efficient than ever before. And compared to AC? Well, the difference is staggering.
On average, fans use around 1% of the energy of air conditioning. That’s right, it’s a staggering difference. So not only are you saving money, but you’re also reducing your carbon footprint at the same time.
Great In the Workplace
In many workplace settings, you’ve got large areas to cool. Installing ceiling fans can help to reduce the overall temperature significantly.
Although they do not cool the air, they can distribute the air-conditioned air more effectively. This may even allow you to save money on air conditioning. Some fans can also assist with moisture control, which is great for your equipment and tools.
