Ceiling fans are mechanical indoor fixtures that are suspended from the ceiling of a room and have hub-mounted rotating blades to circulate air.
Tips on ceiling fans:
Look at the angle at which the ceiling fan blades sweeps through the air (this angle is called the pitch). A good blade pitch is typically 14 degrees or more.
Some fans have blades with an airfoil shape where they are steeper closer to the motor and flatter near the end. These types of blades are more aerodynamic and require less power.
Ceiling fans are particularly good replacements for air conditioners, giving you energy savings and quieter operation.
Everyone knows that ceiling fans cool. But what most people don't know is that they also warm your home. The problem with warm air is that it rises, leaving the cool air trapped at floor level, which is problematic with higher ceilings. A ceiling fan breaks up the cool and warm layers, making the room temperature more uniform.
This website provides a number of different styles of ceiling fans. Make sure that the ceiling fan you choose appeals to you and fits the room it will be put in.
If possible, put the ceiling fan in the middle of the room and make sure that the blade tips are at least 24 inches from the walls.

LIGHTING QUOTE OF THE WEEK
Any room, whatever its size, looks better with many little pools of light rather than a general glare. I like intimate low light just where and when you need it.
