Benefits of Ceiling Fans

Having a ceiling fan installed can be advantageous to you and your family in many ways. It’s not just about cooling your home, although that’s certainly a big part of it. Ceiling fans can also save you money, keep your air clean, and provide functional decoration to any room. Read on to learn more about the benefits of ceiling fan installation.

Energy Efficiency

There are some days when air conditioning is a must, but there are others when it’s a bit more than you need and you wind up draining a ton of energy unnecessarily. For days like those, a ceiling fan can be the perfect remedy. They can keep your house cool when the weather is warm without running your utility bill through the roof.

Extra Lighting

Ceiling fans can come with their own lighting, meaning they can help you declutter a room by removing the need for a bunch of lamps, or you can keep your lamps and add the extra light your ceiling fan provides. And during the electrical installation of your ceiling fan, your technician can also include a dimmer switch for your lights, opening up your options even further.

Better Air Quality

Ceiling fans help to circulate air throughout your home, so you and your family aren’t left breathing in dust, debris, and allergens. As an added bonus, the increased air flow can actually reduce the overall temperature of your home, so you don’t need to be in the room with the ceiling fan in order to enjoy its cooling effects.

Aesthetic Quality

Your ceiling fan doesn’t need to be strictly functional. It can add to the aesthetic of your home with its style, and the ambience of the room with its lighting.

Ceiling Fan Replacement

Sure, ceiling fans can provide a room with a certain aesthetic beauty, but they can also provide a room with a painful eye sore once they’ve become worn down, dust-ridden, and discolored. When that happens, it’s probably time that you consider a replacement. Just give SALT Light & Electric a call and we’ll send one of our skilled electrical contractors down to help you through the process.

Signs Your Ceiling Fan Needs Replacement

They usually last quite a long time, but they never last forever. Here are just a few signs that your ceiling fan is on its way out.

Loud Sounds

The ambient lighting and cool air a ceiling fan provides are meant to be relaxing and comfortable. When your fan starts becoming unbearably noisy, that relaxation and comfort goes right out the window. As long as the fan was installed properly, it shouldn’t be overly noisy at all. If you can’t seem to make the loud sounds stop, it may be time for a replacement.

Increased Electric Bill

After a while, your fan is going to start requiring more energy to continue doing its job. If you notice a spike in your electric bill, and your fan or fans are getting up there in age, they may be to blame. Consider replacement.

It Stops Working Altogether

If you flip the switch and nothing happens, you’ve obviously got a problem. Sometimes it can be chalked up to faulty wiring that can be fixed relatively easily. Other times it’s an indicator that the motor has failed and your ceiling fan’s time has come. When this is the case, give us a call.
