Most Hunter ceiling fans have a reverse option which is especially important to reduce heating bills in the winter, warm air can be directed down to where it is needed by spinning the ceiling fan clockwise.
One thing that people overlook planning installation is what is on the other side of the wall. Be sure to remember that the sound will penetrate both the front and back of the wall, this may become an issue if the adjoining room is a place that you do not want to hear the sound from the speaker.
Why do some fans require oil and others do not? The Hunter Original has a very unique motor that uses an oil-bath lubrication system. This system keeps the main bearings lubricated at all times, for quiet operation and long-life. It is part of the reason why this fan has a limited lifetime motor warranty. Most other fans use motors that do not require oil.
Can the ceiling fan be used in the winter for any beneficial purpose? A ceiling fan can help lower energy consumption in the winter by up to 15%. The temperature of the air in a heated room varies in layers; the air near the ceiling is warmer than the air near the floor, because warm air rises. A ceiling fan can help push the warmer air that is trapped near the ceiling back down into the room, thus de-stratifying the layers of warm air. As a result, the warm air is circulated where it is needed, and the heating system does not overwork to warm the room. To properly de-stratify a warmed room, the ceiling fan should be run in a clockwise direction. This pushes the air up against the ceilings and down the walls, to gently re-circulate the warm air without creating a cooling wind chill effect.
Can a ceiling fan and a light kit be controlled from the same wall switch? The answer here depends on how your wall switch is currently wired. If you have a single wall switch with two wires (one black, one white), the answer is no unless you purchase a control specifically designed for this type of switch (Hunter offers three models). The answer is yes if you have a three wire set-up in the single wall switch and purchase a more common, dual control that will operate a fan and light separately from a single switch. Having an electrician install a third wire can be expensive.
The purpose of this article is to provide a brief overview of the in-wall and in-ceiling installation process. Dont worry, it is not as hard as it might sound, you will just need a few basic tools and some basic preplanning to get started. A common trend today is to get a way from big boxy speakers that take up so much valuable space. So a very nice alternative is to use in-wall and in-ceiling speakers. This has the advantage of providing more floor space as well as a more pleasing aesthetic home environment.
