Summer can be a source of sweltering temperatures and oppressive humidity, and that means day after day of running your air conditioner for hours and hours. In other words, summer can mean a season of expensive energy bills all dedicated to trying to beat the heat and stay cool. However, nobody likes sacrificing hundreds of dollars per month to their electricity bill, and it’s not uncommon for many people to feel as though there simply has to be a better way to stay comfortable. There is, and it’s an easier one than you might think: installing a ceiling fan. Studies have shown time and time again that ceiling fans can make a room feel several degrees cooler without having to turn down your air conditioner and spend a ton of money doing so.

How to Select the Right Ceiling Fan
So, you’ve decided you want to invest in a ceiling fan: where do you begin in the process of choosing the right one? There are so many ceiling fan makes and models out there on the market today that sorting through them all to find the right one might feel like looking for a needle in the proverbial haystack. The truth is it isn’t that bad at all. There are a few things you should take into consideration when selecting a ceiling fan, as the fan you choose will impact your quality of life and a number of different factors in your home as well.
You should always consider each of the following things when choosing a new ceiling fan:
- Fan size: A fan that’s too small can’t move enough air to effectively cool you off. A larger fan may use slightly more energy, but will create a lot more air movement in a room, thus keeping you feeling cooler.
- Fan design: A ceiling fan will become an integral part of your room’s décor and aesthetic value. You’ll want to choose a ceiling fan that matches your decorative goals and functions well. There are fans out there that match just about any design goal you might have, from the most outrageous and bold designs to conservative and simple.
- Fan warranty: Most manufacturers have some sort of a warranty on their ceiling fans, but some only apply this warranty if you have the fan professionally installed. Make sure you choose a fan that is properly protected and we’ll take care of the professional installation for you.
- Included technology: Some fans come with things like remote controls for speed and light adjustment. Some fans come with changeable LED light control. Other fans don’t come with any lighting whatsoever, and are just a simple fan unit. Whatever you’re looking for, make sure you consider the pros and cons of a model before ultimately selecting it.
