Now, before you grab the screwdriver and your old step stool, we’ve got a few more things to go over, so buckle up.
Location: Although ceiling fans are typically positioned in the center of the room, it’s best to place your fan where people are most likely to congregate within the home for optimal comfort. For proper air circulation, fireplaces and ventilation reference may also need to be considered before placing your fan.
Distance: If your ceilings are higher than the average eight feet, you will likely need to have your fan installed with an extension for proper airflow and attainable comfort.
Ceiling fan installation by a licensed electrician is crucial to achieving proper airflow and maximum energy efficiency.
Although ceiling fans may not appear complicated to install, even the smallest of mistakes can be hazardous and negatively affect your new ceiling fan’s performance.
Don’t risk it; leave ceiling fan installation to the professionals!
Now that your fan has been professionally installed, how can you maximize energy efficiency moving forward?
For optimal efficiency, your ceiling fan blades should rotate counterclockwise during the summer months so that the blades push the cool air down.
You’ll want to change your ceiling fan’s blade rotation to spin clockwise on the lowest speed in the wintertime; this will help pull the cold air up to the ceiling and push warm air back down.
And that’s it; you’re all set!
Just dust your ceiling fan at least once a week for air quality purposes and change your blade rotation with the seasons.
