Blade irons/brackets: Blade irons attach your ceiling fan blades to the motor, connecting the fan together after it is mounted.
Warranty - Make sure you fan comes with a factory warranty. Personally, I never buy extended warranties. Mathematical formulas have shown that once you buy a certain number of appliances, your costs for purchasing additional warranties will begin to exceed the benefits, even if one or two of your appliances wind up going bad. Just like with insurance, warranties have a formula, and it just makes good sense to be on the winning side of that formula.
There are 2 types of outdoor ceiling fans, those rated for DAMP locations and those rated for WET locations. There is a notable difference between the two and it is important that you choose the right type for your application. In either case, make sure the fan you purchase is UL Listed for the application you need so that you know it can be safely installed without creating a potential electrical hazard.
Functionality - Contrary to popular belief, ceiling fans are not for the hot-weather months alone. Sure, they provide that extra cooling power in summer, but did you know that you can use your fan in winter, too? That’s right. A ceiling fan can also help to make the hot air from your heater rise in winter, as well. All you have to do is to reverse the rotation of the blades. Just hit the switch and make your blades move counterclockwise. This cause the fan to pull the air instead of push it. This is especially beneficial if you live in a two-story home. Myself, I do live in a two story house, and I find that on moderate winter days I can pull the hot air from downstairs and thus not have to use the upstairs heater at all. Since first discovering this simple technique, I have cut my electricity bill in winter by 25%. Yes, it really works!
