Quick tip:
Dust begone!

Put some furniture polish on the blades (on the side that faces the ceiling). The slick surface will help keep dust from settling.


Quick tip:
Sometimes two is better than one.

Although a large fan can accommodate a Great Room, sometimes two smaller fans work better to circulate air efficiently—and maximize comfort—in a very long room.

Did you know...


…you can control your fan and light with a single switch?

Since we didn’t wire your house, we can’t guarantee you’ll be able to flip a switch to control your light and fan, but it’s likely. If you have a single wall switch with two wires (one black, one white), you can buy a control specifically designed for this type of switch (and we offer three models). If you have a three-wire setup in the single wall switch, you’ll need to get a more common, dual control that will operate a fan and light separately from a single switch. Heads up: having an electrician install a third wire can be expensive.


…remote controls are more than just convenient?

Ceiling fan remote controls can work up to 40 feet away from the actual ceiling fan—awesome!—but they can also increase efficiency by making it easier to dim lights, change speed settings and more. Best of all? They’re easy to install yourself.


…your fan can save you up to 47% on cooling costs and lower energy consumption in the winter by up to 15%?

Yes, it’s good for all seasons. Savings will vary depending on local climate conditions and energy rates. The big thing to remember is that a fan cools people, not rooms. You’ll want to turn your fan off when you leave the room to keep energy costs down. Read on and you’ll see what we mean.

Ceiling fans cool the room by creating a wind chill effect.

Wind chill effect makes you feel cooler by accelerating the evaporation of perspiration on your skin. It’s the feeling you get when you open the window in a moving car. Think of it this way: If the thermostat says the room temperature is 80 degrees, running the fan can create a wind chill effect that makes you feel as if the temperature is 72 degrees. Cool, huh? You’ll keep the thermostat of your air conditioner at a higher temperature, and save energy.


Push the warm air down during the winter.

We all remember that warm air rises. But did you know a ceiling fan can push that air you just paid to heat back down to you? Just flip the switch on the blade direction so the fan runs in a clockwise direction. This pushes the air up against the ceilings and down the walls, to re-circulate the warm air gently without creating a cooling wind chill effect.
