Choosing Modern Ceiling Fans the Smart Way


What do you need to do when deciding on an outdoor modern ceiling fan with lights? Of course, there are various elements, but just like you need to decide on any other home appliance like a refrigerator or washing machine, you need to give consideration to your decor and style, as well as how functional the ceiling fans will be.

Right here we will go over the many different elements, some tangible, a few intangible, of choosing the proper ceiling fan for you.


Installing a ceiling fan can alter the decor of any area, whether it be large or small. Palm-leaf fans have the ability to make any outdoor space or patio appear more like the tropics, while a rustic, bronze fan can accent your conventional style bedroom or living room. No doubt, a ceiling fan is a remarkable complement which can bring any room together.

Ceiling fans are available in all styles, the whole lot from vintage to tropical to trendy. They come in all sorts of shades, ranging from gold to white, silver, red, green, whatever color suits your style. Additionally, they come in all kinds of materials, like brass, bronze, and even chrome. When deciding on a ceiling fan for you, bear in mind, an excellent fan not only suits the decor of your room, it can anchor it and bring it all together.


Contrary to popular belief,  modern ceiling fans aren’t for the hot-weather months alone. Sure, they provide that greater 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 assist to make the hot air from your heater rise in wintry weather. It is a case of reversing the rotation of the blades.

Simply hit the switch and make your blades flow counterclockwise. This cause the fan to pull the air instead of pushing it. This is especially useful if you stay in a double-story home. Someone we know stays in a two-story house, and we find that on moderate winter days he can pull the hot air from downstairs and therefore not have to use the upstairs heater at all. Since first discovering this easy technique, he managed to cut his electricity bill in winter by 25%. Sure, it really works!

The height of your ceiling does make a difference

Just like all ceiling fans aren’t alike, all rooms aren’t identical, either. The nearer your fan is to the ceiling, the less air it is going to pull. Lower ceilings will need a flush mount, that means you  want to mount your fan close to the ceiling. Otherwise, it might be hanging down too low and pose a threat. However, if you have high ceilings, you will want to install a downrod.

A downrod is nothing more than an extension. The higher your ceiling, the longer you need the down rod to be. When you have ten-foot ceilings, you should have a one-foot down rod. Downrods increase total airflow and bring the blades themselves in the direction of where you want it.


Of course, the safety of your ceiling fan is of the utmost importance. You need to be sure that the fan itself is first-class rated and that by installing it you are not going to be overloading any circuits. An overload of the circuits could lead to power outages and even fire.

Most of us are the do-it-yourself type of people. We don’t like paying for something we can do ourselves. Many of you may have your own set of fans that were installed by you. However, for the primary one, you would have called an electrician. The reason for this was that you wanted to ensure you weren’t going to overload any circuits. Then had him check your breakers.


Make sure you fan comes with a factory warranty. In our opinion, you should in no way purchase extended warranties. The mathematical formulation has shown that once you purchase a certain variety of appliances, your fees for purchasing extra warranties will start to exceed the benefits, even if one or of your appliances wind up going bad. Just like with insurance, warranties have a formulation, and it just makes good sense to be on the winning side of that formulation.
