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.
With good processing, wood ceiling can be a beautiful and exotic decoration if the wooden horse exposed has finished properly. With this form, ceiling cover is placed between the exposed frame and roof by bolted to the roof frame and neatly finished. Wood which used for ceiling has to free of termites so it not easily porous and has been roasted properly so it not easily expand or shrink when exposed by heat or rain. You can use teak or resin wood.
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.
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.
What is the minimum height I need in my room to put up a fan? Safety standards state that the min height from the floor to the bottom of the fan blades must be 2.3m or 7ft 6, consider Hunter Low Profile ceiling fan if you have a low ceiling, just really make sure that they are above head height.
Why Many Fans Are Noisy. An electrical humming created when a ceiling fan is running is usually the result of poor engineering design and a lack of precision manufacturing. Some manufacturers use generic, inexpensive ball bearings to reduce cost, even though these are a common source of operating noise. A lack of proper dampening between metal parts can also create and intensify noise, as can the use of extra thin sheet metal motor and mounting system parts. Hunter fans only use the best materials available.
