The biggest advantage of ceiling fans over air conditioning units is the power consumed. Ceiling fans don’t use much at all, whereas air conditioning will bump up your power bill enormously. Even if money is no object you will probably be concerned about the effects of using too much power on the environment.
While the sale of air-conditioners continues to grow, many home owners overlook ceiling fans despite the fact that they can make a room feel four to five degrees cooler!
Here are some other great benefits of ceiling fans:
They can complement air-conditioners and help them run more efficiently which is better for the environment, and significantly reduces electricity bills.
Ceiling fans are also helpful if installed above dining tables or kitchens because they dissuade flying pests from entering the room.
Ceiling fans also have a number of benefits over floor standing or smaller desk-style fans. Ceiling fans become part of the room’s décor, save space and are safer particularly for children and pets.
Today’s ceiling fans are more efficient, with improvements in motors, controls, blade design and reduced weight making them a feature of a room instead of an eyesore.
A recent innovation in ceiling fans is the latest version of the Hunter Pacific Typhoon fan in which moulded plastic blades replace the traditional metal or steel variety. The Typhoon moulded design promotes large amounts of airflow with minimal noise, and is safe to use in areas where inadvertent contact with fans blades may occur.
