This might seem like a do it yourself job to some people at first glance. But stop and think about the idea that a 25 pound metal and wood object will be suspended over your head for years, while spinning...Maybe it's better to let a professional handle this? A ceiling fan requires specific hardware to be mounted properly, and because of the constant vibrations and motion, the wiring to the fan must be done right. With literally thousands of ceiling fan installations in Monmouth County under our belt, we can install a fan safely, in any part of your home. Your fan will likely be there for years to come, a professional installation is a good investment.
Speaking of investments a ceiling fan will provide a great return, by increasing your comfort in the hottest and coldest times of the year.
A common misconception is that ceiling fans lower the temperature in a room. Fans do not change the temperature in a room like air conditioners, fans only move air. In the summer, a fan's direction should be set so that air is blown downward. The breeze created by a ceiling fan make us feel cooler by speeding up the evaporation of perspiration on human skin. Since the fan works directly on the body, rather than by changing the temperature of the air, during the summer it is a waste of electricity to leave a ceiling fan on when no one is in a room.
In the winter, ceiling fans should be set to turn in the opposite direction and on a low speed. A ceiling fan, with its direction of rotation set so that air is pulled upward, draws up the colder air below, forcing the warmer air nearer the ceiling to move down to take its place, without blowing a stream of air directly on the people in the room. This action works to even out the temperature in the room, making it cooler nearer the ceiling, but warmer nearer the floor.
Here are some of the more typical ways we control the operation of ceiling fans for our Customers
Pull Chain Ceiling Fan Controls
Pull Chain/pull-cord control. This is the most common operation for household fans. This style of fan is equipped with a metal-bead chain which, when pulled, cycles the fan through the operational speed(s) and then back to off. These fans typically have three speeds.
Wall Mounted Chain Ceiling Fan Controls
Wall-mounted control. Some fans have their control(s) mounted the wall instead of on the fans themselves. These can be simple switches or specialized fan controls.
Wireless Ceiling Fan Remote Controls
Wireless remote control. In recent years, remote controls have become an affordable option for controlling ceiling fans. While some models do employ this as their sole form of operation, it is more common for a person to purchase an after-market kit and install it on an existing fan.
