Ceiling Fans Can Be Both Functional And Beautiful


If you’re considering installing a ceiling fan or adding a new ceiling fan to a different room, we think you’re making a great choice.

That’s because ceiling fans add a number of benefits, including comfort, lighting, beauty, and cost savings.

Below you will find our top reasons to install a ceiling fan and some bonus tips on things to consider before you install.

So, let’s get started!

Top Reasons To Install A Ceiling Fan

An Additional Source of Indoor Lighting

Most ceiling fans can also add to, or replace ambient or mood lighting in your home. (For a more detailed look at indoor lighting, click here.)

There is a wide variety of ceiling fan designs. From modern to classic, your ceiling fans can help you create a mood, reinforce your design, and give light when you need it.

Keep Your Rooms Warmer In Winter

Whaaaat?! It’s true, a ceiling fan can be used to circulate warm air in the winter. 

That is because warm air rises and settles at your ceiling until it cools. Using a fan in its reverse mode pushes warm air down into the room, allowing it to stay warm for longer.

Cooler In Summer

It’s no surprise that one of the main reasons people consider a ceiling fan is to keep their rooms and offices cooler in the summer.

Fans keep rooms cooler by circulating air around the room and dispersing pockets of warm air.

Energy And Cost Savings

As we’ve seen above, ceiling fans allow you to keep your rooms cooler in warm temperatures and warmer in cool temperatures.

This puts less pressure on your HVAC system, reducing your need for air conditioning and heating. This feature allows you to save money AND reduce your environmental impact. Double score.

Other Things to Consider

If you are installing a ceiling fan, it’s important to know what you want to accomplish before starting. 


Can you modify an existing light fixture? 

Yes! For example, you can replace a dining area chandelier or fixture with a ceiling fan. The most important thing to remember is that a fan should be located in the centre of the area or room you’d like it to serve and be well supported.


How Big Is The Room Where You Are Installing Your Ceiling Fan? 

It goes without saying, the bigger the room, the larger the ceiling fan you will need.

Your ceiling fan blades will also need good clearance from room walls and any other obstructions.

By knowing the square footage of the space, and the appropriate fan-blade diameter, you will get the right fan for your needs.


Do you want to install your ceiling fan where there is no existing fixture?

If so, you will need to cut a hole and fish in wiring to install the electrical and fan housing/mount. If you don’t have the experience or tools to do this, we recommend you call a qualified electrician.
