Lighting can add so much to your home. When you begin looking at lighting options for your home you will see that there are tons of different options out there for you to choose from. You can select from canned lights, pendant lights, chandeliers, ceiling fans, and more. If you are considering ceiling fans, Peterkin Electric has some reasons that may encourage you in selecting them for your home.
How Do Ceiling Fans Save Energy
Ceiling fans can help lower the amount of money that you spend on utilities. It is estimated that ceiling fans can help lower your electric bill by up to as much as 40%. Why do ceiling fans lower utility bills? Contrary to popular belief ceiling fans do not actually make your room cooler. As ceiling fans rotate they make a draft that makes your room feel cooler. Without changing the temperature on your thermostat the fan can make your room feel six to eight degrees cooler. If your room feels cooler you can keep your thermostat at a higher temperature and be just as comfortable. Homeowners can find utility savings during the summer and winter months by installing ceiling fans. During the summer you will want the blades on your fan to run counterclockwise. This will help create a cooling breeze. During the winter months you will want to change your ceiling fan blades to rotate clockwise. Hot air rises so the warmer air will be towards the top of your ceiling. When your fan blades rotate clockwise they take the warm air from the ceiling and direct it to the floor.
Ceiling Fans to Match Any Decor
Over the years ceiling fans have become increasingly more stylish. Designers have created fans to match just about any size, style, and finish that you could dream of. No matter what style you are creating in your home you should be able to find a ceiling fan to complement it. Your fan could become a focal point of your room if that is what you are looking for.
Ceiling Fan Light Kits
In addition to saving you money and making a design statement ceiling fans also help provide light in your home. Many times homes are not constructed with as much lighting as homeowners would prefer. Instead of adding lamps many homeowners prefer a light fixture. A ceiling fan provides lighting while providing other perks as well.
If you live in an area where indoor insects and bugs that fly are common a ceiling fan can help with your pest control. Mosquitoes and houseflies are bugged by the breeze that is created by ceiling fans. This breeze will encourage mosquitoes and houseflies to find another place to take up residence and rid you of their pesky presence in your home.
