Did you know that a ceiling fan uses just a little more energy than a 100-watt light bulb? It's true! And despite the fact that it doesn't actually cool the room, you can still raise the thermostat while using a ceiling fan and remain comfortable. Why? Because the fan creates a slight wind chill on the surface of your skin, making you feel cooler. If you're planning to replace an existing overhead light fixture with a ceiling fan (which is a fairly easy task for most of us who are at least willing to try it!), read on for some tidbits of information from HouseLogic that you're sure to appreciate.
The goal of using a ceiling fan is to move more air with less effort – measured in revolutions per minute. A fan that’s 36 to 42 inches in diameter might have a top speed of 300 rpm; a 52-inch fan moves the same amount of air at 220 rpm.
Size matters more than the number of blades. Go for the biggest fan that will fit the space. Here are general size guidelines from the American Lighting Association:
Up to 75 square feet
36” or smaller
Up to 144 square feet
36” to 42”
Up to 224 square feet
50” to 54”
Now, of course, the question is how much to pay for that increased comfort? Prices for ceiling fans vary a great deal, from $20 to $100 for a basic, two-switch type, to $3,000 and up to $12,000 for entire fan systems consisting of several high-end fans.
Finally, what should you look for in a ceiling fan? Here are some basic guidelines:
Blade pitch. The wider the blade (5 inches is good) and the higher their angle—called “pitch”—the more air gets moved. Higher-end fans have a blade pitch of 12 to 14 degrees.
Blade finish. Make sure the factory has treated the blades with a moisture sealant to prevent wooden blades from warping and peeling, and metal blades from scratching and tarnishing.
Motor quality. Better fans come with motors that have sealed and lubricated ball bearings, which require little maintenance, if any. More expensive models feature heavy-duty windings, precision engineering bearings, and die-cast housings, which vibrate less and are good-looking.
