Berta Leone. Ceiling Fans. January 13th , 2018.
A down rod is nothing more than an extension, really. The higher your ceiling, the longer you want the down rod to be. If you have ten foot ceilings, you should have a one-foot down rod. Down rods increase total airflow and bring the blades themselves closer to where you need it.
Ceiling fans come in all styles, everything from antique to tropical to modern. They come in all colors, ranging from gold to white, silver, red, green, whatever color suits your style. They also come in all kinds of materials, like brass, bronze, and even chrome. When choosing a ceiling fan for you, remember, a good fan not only matches the decor of your room, it can anchor it and bring it all together.
If you think Ceiling fans are a thing from the past, and that they have been made obsolete by air conditioning units, you’re wrong. Please don’t take it personally, most people think exactly the same as you - but it still doesn’t make it right. Heating and cooling systems are something that people have looked for since the dawn of time (well, at least since the human race started worrying about comfort). Thousands of years ago, ancient civilizations were already using fan systems to move the air around, to cool them down. Of course, back then this was something only the most powerful and influent people could afford, the majority of the population had to deal with heat and cold any other way they could. Thousands of years had to go by until the rest of the population could use similar fan systems to turn their homes more comfortable. It was the introduction of the ceiling fans. Although not as "exotic" as having someone slowly fanning some palm tree leafs over your head, ceiling fans are much more efficient at moving air. And everyone knows how much better it feels to have a breeze blowing over you on those hot summer days. Even though the air is at the exact same temperature as its surrounding environment, the air movement has a chill affect that helps lower the skin temperature. Think of it as traveling in your car on a hot summer day with the windows full open... doesn’t it feel good? That’s exactly the same thermodynamic principle that has been known for thousands of years - well before cars were invented.
Decor - Installing a ceiling fan can change the decor of any room, large or small. Palm-leaf fans can make your outdoor space or patio look more like the tropics, while a rustic, bronze fan can accent your traditional style living room or bedroom. Whatever the decor, there is a fan made for it. A fan is a wonderful complement that can really bring any room together.
