Cooling Ceiling Fans Says Pasadena Electrician

You need a ceiling fan to help you keep your home cool this summer without running up your electric bill. A ceiling fan uses a fraction of the electricity that an air conditioner uses. In fact, running your AC 24 hours a day, seven days a week can cost close to $400 a month. A ceiling fan on the other hand, only costs about $60 a month running on high all day and night. While a ceiling fan won’t cool your air per se, it circulates the air and creates a nice breeze that makes you feel cool and ultimately, more comfortable. You will need a Pasadena electrician, like those at H Electric to install the fan for you.

You will need to take care of picking the right fan out that will suit your décor. It is important that you pay attention to the details on the box. You will find what size of room each fan works best in. This is information you won’t want to ignore. Buying a fan that is too small will not provide much help in circulating the air. Buying a fan that is too big for a room is just as bad. If the blades are so long they nearly touch the wall, the air that is produced will be running along the walls instead of into the area you are sitting.

If you are planning on placing the fan where the existing light fixture is at, you will need to make sure you buy a fan that has a light assembly. If the fan doesn’t have a light included, you can typically buy a light assembly that will give you what you need. This is best installed by an electrician. Pasadena homeowners that have vaulted or cathedral ceilings will need to buy a fan with an extension rod and a remote control to adjust the speed.
