Ceiling fans serve to cool the air on hot days, create comfortable conditions in the room and ensure the well-being of the people in it. The peculiarity of ceiling fans is that they not only cool the room, but are also part of the interior, decorate the room and create a certain mood among those around. The arrangement of ceiling fans is simple – they have several rotating blades which, when the fan works, capture air, mix it and provide air movement, which creates a feeling of coolness and freshness. We feel the whiff of the wind, which can cool even on the hottest day. Ceiling fans can be used not only in summer, to cool rooms, but also in winter. If you change the direction of the blades, the air will move from the bottom up, the cold air masses mix with the more heated and the temperature in the room gradually level. In the summer, the motion of the blades is directed so that the air moves from top to bottom and blows those present with a light refreshing breeze.
Along with the advent of modern high-power air conditioners, such an element of the design of the room, like a ceiling fan, seems to be a thing of the past. However, this is not so, because such a device will not only provide the room with fresh air, but will contribute to the expression of the designer’s taste of the owner, adding a “zest” to the interior of the room.
Modern ceiling fans are constantly improving: now on the shelves of shops you can find models not only different in appearance, but also in terms of technical characteristics. And such an important component as the cost of the product can seriously affect the choice of the homeowner.
To choose a ceiling fan, you first need to stop on its technical characteristics. With power, everything is simple enough: the higher it is at the device, the higher its efficiency, that is, the performance. To calculate the required power for optimal cooling / heating of the room, it is necessary to multiply the area of the room by 2. Thus, for a room of 15 sq m, a 30W fan is suitable.
The speed of rotation of the blades in ceiling fans is basically regulated in 3 levels: from slow rotation to the fastest. Here the choice depends only on the owner, but it’s worth noting that in warm areas, living in a conventional panel high-rise building, without fast fan operation is indispensable.
The noise level produced by a modern ceiling fan should not exceed a value of 30 dB. Such an assembly can be installed even in the nursery, without worrying about the fact that the fan will interfere with the household.
The fixtures are usually mounted on ceiling fans. 4. The manufacturer conducts all necessary tests before sending the product for sale. Therefore, fix the fan according to the instructions, but if necessary, it is possible to improve the design to improve the reliability of the fastening.
With remote control, it is more convenient to operate a modern ceiling fan, and it’s easier to shell out a little more time to get comfort.
Now let’s say about the interior. The fan can contrast with the ceiling, which often emphasizes the ceiling details of the interior and focuses on the device itself, especially since a pattern can be applied on the surface of the blades, for example, correlated with ceiling patterns.
Fans with a chandelier are not only a “2 in 1” solution, but also allow you to play with the interior of the room regarding lighting: the shape of the chandelier, its texture and color, and the tones of the light it illuminates the room.
You can also play with the shadows that the blades throw on the ceiling: the room can be imagined, for example, in the soft dark tones of a tree, where the fan, casting shadows on the cream ceiling, adds more comfort and “silence”.
