Does a Ceiling Fan Cool a Room Down

Although it cannot be measured on a thermostat, the rotating of a fan’s blades in the counter clockwise direction produces a breeze that helps create a wind chill factor throughout a room. This wind chill factor makes the room feel significantly cooler than what the thermostat will actually read. This wind chill factor can be felt by anyone in the room, and makes the room much more comfortable even though the temperature has not changed drastically at all. This saves energy due to the fact that people can set their air conditioners at a higher temperature. The money saved on their electric bill will be eminent along with helping keep our environment green by being more fuel efficient. Ceiling fans only use anywhere between 25-80 watts versus an air conditioner, which uses considerably more (around the 500-2500 watt range).

What are the appropriate steps to buying a ceiling fan?
Room Size and Ceiling Height
When choosing a ceiling fan be sure to get the correct size that is most compatible to your room. You should not purchase a fan that is obviously too big or too small for the room because it will not cool down as quickly or cool the room down too much.  
The ceiling height of your room will also determine the length of the down rod and the size of other accessories that the fan needs to operate. Ceiling fans come with a universal 8” foot ceiling rod so be wary of that. In order to ensure a quality ceiling fan, make sure you know the proper dimensions of the room you are purchasing the unit for. This will make the purchasing process go smooth and quick.

Blade Span   Room Size (Square Footage)       Room Size
29”- 36”          Under  110 square ft.                     Small
40”-48”          110 sq. ft. - 150 sq. ft.                    Medium
50”-58”          150 sq. ft. - 300 sq. ft.                    Standard
60”-72”          Over 300 sq. ft.                              Large

Ceiling Fan Performance
How well a ceiling fan will perform is dependent on the parts that make up the fan. The motor size, blade pitch, and blade construction are those parts and factors that will determine this. Big is not always best when it comes to these parts, as it is always about performance. A blade pitch is a term for the blade angle. A greater angle will equate to the ceiling fan moving more air. The blade pitch should be between 12 and 16 degrees to be at maximum efficiency. The blade construction is all about the certain kind of material the blade is made from, and will determine how well your ceiling fan will perform. They should be made of pressurized Hardwood to prevent warping, which can be a problem when purchasing fans with cheap blade construction such as particle boards.

Design of the Ceiling Fan
When you are looking for the right ceiling fan, consider the different styles and designs that will improve your home décor. Many ceiling fans come in different finishes to match virtually every household design, such as the blades, that come in different shapes, sizes, colors. Take advantage of the wide selections of fans that are offered and all different styles of fans. These include traditional, contemporary, indoor, outdoor, and energy star fans.  Lastly, make sure the style of fan you choose matches your home to add value to the design of your home.

There are three different kinds of ceiling fans available for purchase including a pull chain, hand held remote control or a wall control. Choose what control system is most convenient for you when purchasing a ceiling fan.
