Some points to consider when buying a ceiling fan: - How much air is actually being circulated? - How efficiently will the fan move air? - How quiet or noisy is the fan? - Will the fan wobble? - How long will the fan last? - How durable is the finish? - Will the manufacturer stand behind the warranty?
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.
Many Fans Move Very Little Air. A ceiling fan that looks nice but moves little air is a comfort to no one. One of the keys to proper air movement is blade pitch. The greater the pitch-the angle of the blade-the greater the air movement providing the blade pitch has been properly harmonized with the motor. Unlike Hunter some manufacturers skimp on materials and dont use large enough or powerful enough motors to support proper blade pitch. So they compromise on blade pitch, sacrificing proper air movement to reduce the stress on undersized or under-powered motors. Many fans also use extra thin blades to reduce cost. The reduced blade surface area means reduced air movement.
Before we get started in the actual installation you should be sure to check with the local authorities about any ordinances that may require permits when altering the walls and ceilings of your residence. So with all the preliminary details out of the way, lets get started now. When installing in-wall speakers, one of the most important considerations is the construction of the wall. Find out where the studs are located, the standard is 16apart. We should plan on installing are speakers in between the studs. It is important to avoid damaging the studs, because depending on the construction they may be supporting the ceiling.
Ceiling fans provide an optimal cooling system within your residence. This is especially true when combined with the breeze coming from the windows. Even in the summer, opening the windows and keeping the fans running can allow cool air to filter through the popular areas of the house. Also, most can work in either direction. This lets them be effective during any time of the year. In warm weather, they can be run counter-clockwise so that the cool air will be blown toward the people occupying the room. In the winter, the fans can be turned the opposite direction to pull the cool air up and away from people in the room.
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.
