Ceiling Fan Installation

Ceiling fans can be an easy way to update the look and comfort of a room. Another important use of a ceiling fan is climate control – much less expensive than running the A/C.

Most ceiling fans can be used in two different ways; that is, most fans have a mechanism, commonly an electrical switch, for reversing the direction in which the blades rotate. 

Even though most ceiling fans can be mounted to all types of ceilings, not all can be mounted to angled or cathedral ceiling without an added bracket or use of a down-rod extension.

Many styles of ceiling fans have been developed over the years in response to several different factors such as growing energy-consciousness and changes in decorating styles. The advent and evolution of electronic technology has also played a major role in ceiling fan development.

  • Stack-motor ceiling fans – Stack-motor fans employ a powerful, energy-efficient motor, and it is far less expensive to operate than air conditioning. With this design, the fan’s blades mount to a central hub, known as a flywheel. The flywheel can be made of either metal or reinforced rubber, and can be mounted either flush with the fan’s motor housing (concealed) or prominently below the fan’s motor housing (known as a “dropped flywheel”). 
  • Direct-drive ceiling fans – Direct-drive ceiling fans have become the standard for today’s fans. They employ a motor with a stationary inner core with a shell that revolves around it (commonly called a “spinner” motor); the blades attach to this shell. Direct-drive motors are the least expensive motors to produce, and on the whole are the most prone to failure and noise generation.
  • Belt-driven ceiling fans – As mentioned earlier, the first ceiling fans used a water-powered system of belts to turn the blades of fan units (which consisted of nothing more than blades mounted on a flywheel). For period-themed decor, a few companies have created reproduction belt-drive fan systems. The reproduction systems feature an electric motor as the driving force, in place of the water-powered motor. 
  • Cast-iron ceiling fans – Throw backs from a bygone era, a cast-iron fan utilizes a very heavy-duty oil-bath motor. These fans must be oiled periodically, usually once or twice per year, since they use an oil-bath system for lubrication. Because these fans are so sturdily built, and due to their utter lack of electronic components, it is not uncommon to see cast-iron fans operating for eighty years or more.

Q: 01. How can I make my home feel less humid after a summer rainstorm?

Does your home feel too humid after a summer rainstorm? Here is a simple solution: run your air conditioning system a little longer than normal at a lower temperature than normal. Your air conditioning system is dehumidifying your home, while it is running. The system will draw all of the humidity out of your home and that cool feeling will return!

Zoning makes your home more comfortable and helps you save money on energy. Your home is divided into independent zones, as multiple thermostats are used. The climate is then independently controlled depending on your desired level of comfort in each zone. Most common examples of zoning are: separating the upstairs climate from the downstairs; establishing a special zones for sleeping and living areas.

By zoning, you have more control over different areas of your home, without having to regularly adjust the thermostat in order to reach desired level of comfort. Rooms inside your home, which are traditionally warmer than others, are easily cooled without placing extra strain on your HVAC system.

Regular maintenance is absolutely vital to the performance and lifespan of your heating/cooling system.

Benefits of regular maintenance are:

  • System will perform efficiently and you will be able to cut down on high energy costs
  • Prolong the life-span of the equipment; avoid unexpected and costly repairs
  • Maintain manufacturer’s warranty
  • Ensure system is running without risk to your health or/and safety
