Home Lighting: The Versatile Ceiling Fan

ceiling fan Even better, today’s ceiling fans can be reversed for year-round use, running counter-clockwise in the summer to move cooled air and, reversed to a clockwise direction in the colder months, pushing down warm air from the ceiling to the living area . They truly are one of the most useful, versatile forms of home lighting that you can find.

Because of the many styles and sizes, ceiling fans are useful in almost any room of the house and are even used on porches to move stagnant air on warm days. Buy whatever style you prefer, but get the biggest one you can afford to ensure maximum efficiency, and if you’re installing it in a great room with high or vaulted ceilings, it’s recommended that you buy two. Ceiling fans should be installed 7 to 9 feet from the floor and not closer than 10 inches from the ceiling. If you have a vaulted ceiling, you can get extenders to lower them a bit.

Maintaining a ceiling fan couldn’t be easier — simply dust off the blades when needed and change light bulbs when they burn out!
