A Good Time for a Ceiling Fan
It’s a hot, sticky day and you emerge at home from your nicely air-conditioned car. The A/C at home has been on low efficiency – or turned off entirely – while you were at work. It will take a while to move the temperature down to a tolerable level, so in the meantime, you seek out the coolest room in your home. Wouldn’t this be a good time for a ceiling fan?
Today’s ceiling fans are more efficient than ever, and come in nearly unlimited choices of finish, width, blade count and light. Keeping with today’s trends you can choose from hundreds of styles in transitional, traditional or sleek, industrial styles; to make a cool statement in any indoor or outdoor setting. Find these styles from Minka Aire’s: Aviation, Java LED, and Concept series, just to name a few .
But most ceiling fan manufacturers now offer a stunning selection of contemporary styles – ranging from nearly unrecognizable-as-fans designs to broadly sweeping designs with anywhere from one to eight blades. Contemporary finishes are often metals: brushed nickel, stainless steel, silver and even matte black. Check out the Light Wave from Minka Aire, featuring a sculptural 3-blade design with integrated LED light.
There are huggers for lower-ceiling rooms or finished basements and oversized fans (65″, 70″ or even 99″) for high foyers, great rooms and maximum air circulation.
Keep your porch, patio or deck cool this summer with a wet- or damp-rated outdoor fan – also available in a broad selection of metal, resin or acrylic blades to stand up to wilting humidity.
