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.
What length drop rod should I use with my fan? Will the fan be more prone to wobble if I use a drop rod? - See chart above. A general formula for calculating drop rod length is: ceiling height in feet minus 9 = drop rod length. This formula is based on the fan-to-floor distance of 8 feet plus 1 foot for the dimension of the fan. So if your ceiling height is 12 feet, you need a 3 foot drop rod in order to properly position the fan 8 feet from the floor. Using long-length drop rods for fan installations actually help stabilize fans and reduce the potential for wobble. Think of a grandfather clock pendulum and its slow, heavy swing versus a smaller clock pendulum with a fast, unsteady swing. Weight and length combine to create stability, reducing wobble, whether it is in a ceiling fan or a clock pendulum.
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.
Ceiling Colors - Ceiling color affects the room atmosphere. Therefore, if your ceiling is low, you should use bright colors so it did not feel cramped. You can use white or other soft colors. You can choose the same color as the wall color. However, if your ceiling is high, you should use a dark color so your ceiling will seem lower.
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.
How do fans cool the room - do they actually lower the temperature? A ceiling fan cools by creating a wind chill effect; it does not lower the room temperature. Wind chill effect makes you feel cooler by accelerating the evaporation of perspiration on your skin. It is the feeling you get when you open the window in a moving car. If you have a ceiling fan in a room whose temperature is 80 degrees, running the fan can create a wind chill effect that makes you feel as if the temperature is 72 degrees. When used in conjunction with an air conditioner, a ceiling fan can lower energy costs, because you can set the thermostat of your air conditioner at a higher temperature.
