America the Beautiful: A Super Power Blast!
Fun Fact: When the air temperature is 78 degrees, your body will feel as if it is 72 degrees if you are seated under a ceiling fan operating at a low speed.
Bring on the summer heat, and power up the latest in design and energy-saving innovation. Pairing ceiling fans and air conditioners set at low fan settings offers the ultimate in comfort and energy-savings.
Top 5 Fan Facts to Beat Summer Heat
- ENERGY STARtm-rated fans:
- Prevent greenhouse gas emissions by meeting strict guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy.
- Move air up to 20 percent more efficiently than conventional models due to advanced blade and motor design.
- With light fixtures, are about 50 percent more efficient and produce about 75 percent less heat.
- The greater the angle of the blade, the more air circulation. Fan blade brackets should be positioned so the blades form a 12-15 degree angle for optimal circulation.
- The heart of every ceiling fan is the motor. Motors equipped with heavy-duty windings and sealed bearings that are permanently lubricated should work flawlessly for long periods of time. Check out motor warranty information when comparing ceiling fans.
- A typical ceiling fan weighs between 15 and 50 pounds when fully assembled. While many junction boxes may support that weight, a fan in operation exerts additional stresses. Be sure to upgrade to a proper junction box when replacing a light fixture with a ceiling fan.
- American Lighting Association (ALA)-member showrooms offer customizable fan products—decorator finishes, unique options such as hand-carved blades, custom light fixtures, ceiling medallions, and control systems, as well as installation tips and servicing advice.
