Fun Facts: Although not an official federal holiday, Flag Day is celebrated on June 14th in the United States. The American flag, adopted by the 2nd Continental Congress in 1777, has been revised 27 times and with each additional state being annexed to the Union, the number of stars has increased. The last star added was for Hawaii on July 4, 1960.

“Oh say does that star spangled banner yet wave?” As American soldiers raised their flag in victory at Fort McHenry on September 14, 1814, Francis Scott Key’s patriotic words came pouring out; thus, the “Star Spangled Banner” was born.

Basic Fan Facts to Know:
- Most decorative ceiling fans contain 5 blades; however, fans with fewer blades will move more air. Industrial-grade ceiling fans have three blades and contain a high-powered motor that may facilitate an energy-savings of 75 % or more.
- “Hugger” fans or low profile ceiling fans are ideal for rooms with lower ceilings. Hugger fans require close-to-ceiling installations where blade rotation will be unobstructed, so they are unsuitable for rooms with vaulted ceilings.
- Outdoor ceiling fans are designed for locations such as open porches or gazebos. These fans are specifically treated with rust-proof finishes and non-warp blades to withstand elements such as heat, humidity and extreme cold. Be sure to check for fans that are UL listed for wet/damp conditions when purchasing a ceiling fan for outdoors.
- Energy Star ceiling fans are those that have been evaluated and rated as being 50 % more efficient than standard fans. Energy Star labels are also indicative of lower priced products and significant energy savings.
With the summer season upon us, there is no better time to invest in ceiling fans for your home environment. The hardest part is choosing how many ceiling fans you need and deciding which style you like best.
