How to choose the best ceiling fan for your home
While choosing the right ceiling fan for your home can seem like a daunting experience, expert Scott highlights some key factors to consider before investing in a ceiling fan online.
Find the right design
“One of the first things you want to look at is where the ceiling fan is going to go. Find a design that fits with the style of your room. Once they are installed on your ceiling, they do a great job at cooling the whole room. However, once they are there, it is a process to move them. So, make sure you choose the right look and feel you are going for. The Mercator Airventure 1300 NL Black, for example, is a great option for the modern home."
“Ceiling fans are a great addition for airflow. You can choose designs that fade into the background or stand out with style. Either choice is a clever one, but the big mistake you want to avoid is not placing it exactly where you want it. When you are having your ceiling fan installed by a licensed trade installer, make sure it measured up and centred, where it will look perfectly in place."
Complement your cooling
“Ceiling fans are powerful and can also be used in conjunction with an air conditioner to increase their efficiency on those scorching hot days and nights. A little bit of airflow goes a long way. If you are looking for something a little bit different to complement your current cooling system, the Mercator Clarence is a great addition."
