Last winter, I climbed up on a ladder to wash the cobwebs from the corners of the ceiling in the living room; I noticed a significant difference in temperature between the floor level plus sitting on the latter.
Sitting on the couch, I’d need to wear a sweater to keep warm, however at the top of the ladder, I was perspiring while wearing a T-shirt… This told me that the heat from the furnace was flowing from the supply vents plus rising straight up.
I was certainly paying higher than necessary yearly utility bills… Plus, the furnace was working extra hard, using more energy plus at greater risk of a malfunction. I did some research plus found that ceiling fans are a fantastic way to improve the comfort plus efficiency of the home. The circulation of the blades works to properly distribute the air. In the summer, the ceiling fans create a cooling effect plus lessen demands on the cooling system. In the winter, by reversing the direction of the blades, the fan helps to push the heat down from the ceiling, but ceiling fans are available in a wide variety of sizes, styles plus prices, however modern options include cordless remotes, LED lights, various speeds plus all sorts of extra features. I originally hoped to handle the upgrade on my own! When I realized that the ceiling fans are rather heavy plus sometimes require special reinforcements, I decided to hire a licensed electrician. The electrician completed the project quickly, properly plus with no mess; He made sure that the ceiling fixtures are properly balanced plus operating safely plus quietly.
