Ceiling fan lights are extremely popular because they are practical, versatile, and serve as a primary source of light for a room.
Believe it or not, ceiling fans can be used year round and can even help to reduce your heating and cooling costs. Ceiling fans help cool the home during summer by circulating the air. Just make sure that the ceiling fan setting is set so that the fan rotates in a counterclockwise direction. When winter comes around, switch the ceiling fan setting back to clockwise rotation and use a low setting. This reverse fan motion will help create a draft in your home that will push warm air down.
Ceiling fan lights are pretty standard for the typical American home. Because ceiling fans are such a popular lighting choice, many manufacturers produce ceiling fan light fixtures in many different finishes and styles. No matter which style you’ve selected for your home decor, you’ll be able to choose from many different finishes, including bronze, brushed nickel, black, white, natural wood colors, pewter, and others.
When choosing ceiling fans, note the size of the room and estimate the appropriate ceiling fan size. A ceiling fan that is too big might mean that you will rarely need to utilize its full power and might look out of place or awkward. For a smaller room, especially with a standard ceiling height, purchase the right size ceiling fan that fits well proportionally and provides optimal air circulation at normal settings.
Ceiling fans are not only versatile because they are available in different styles and can be used year round, ceiling fans can also be used indoors and outdoors. However, it’s important to remember that if you plan on installing a ceiling fan on your porch, you will need a ceiling fan that is designed to be used outdoors. Weatherproof ceiling fans have blades that are weatherproof (even if the ceiling fan motor itself may not be). If you plan to install an outdoor ceiling fan in a location where it will be subjected to direct rainfall, it is best to get a wet-rated ceiling fan.
