If you’re a resident in the Brisbane/Sunshine Coast area you’ll know the importance of staying cool during the hot summer months. While air conditioning can be effective at keeping your home/workplace comfortable, they can also be very expensive to buy, install and to run. One of the smart alternatives that many people are returning to is the good old fashioned ceiling fan. They not only do a great job of maintaining a pleasant temperature, but they do it while keeping energy costs surprisingly low.
In essence there really isn’t a downside to purchasing a ceiling fan. Once installed it only consumes around as much power as a standard 60w light bulb and is considerably cheaper than any A/C unit would be. They come in all shapes, sizes and styles, therefore there’s something to match every budget. The cheapest fans tend to have powder-coated metal blades which are good for general purpose cooling. Conversely, fans with timber blades tend to be more expensive but are usually a lot quieter than their metal counterparts or indeed most A/C units. You can even purchase decorative ceiling fans that also contain lighting, offering dual functionality. Similarly to air conditioning units, some ceiling fans also run off remote control, saving the need for a pull cord, or switch.
Although ceiling fans come with instructions they can be complicated to install, especially if you have to fit an electrical circuit box in your ceiling to accommodate it. For this reason, this is a task that’s often best left to an experienced electrician who can carry out the ceiling fan installation both quickly and safely. In addition, ceiling fans (by their very nature) are relatively heavy and as such need to be secured properly into a fixture (usually a joist) that’s strong enough to hold it.
