Industrial style fans May 29 2013, 0 Comments

When buying a ceiling fan it’s important to consider size, style and quality before you purchase anything.



The right design is vital when choosing a ceiling fan as they are a prominent feature within any room. Is your room décor more industrial contemporary then traditional? If so, then consider a fan with a brushed steel finish to suit the room. For more of a vintage traditional appeal choose something with wooden earthy tones.



Don’t want to bother with the install of a ceiling fan or need something portable? Designer tripod fans are a stylish alternative to the traditional pedestal fan. Inspired by the clean and classic lines of an architects tripod these tripod fans make a stylish edition to your home decor. 



Energy efficient ceiling fans can cut down on your electricity bill by maximising the quality of air circulation. Be sure to look for the “Energy Star” sticker on the fan to ensure its energy efficient. Use fans in summer to maximise the effectiveness of your air conditioning or in winter to help circulate the warm air collected at the ceiling. Fans are very economical to run and can help reduce your heating and air conditioning bills. 



With a wet rated outdoor ceiling fan you can also use them on your verandah or patio deck and enjoy them come rain or come shine. The internal motors of outdoor fans are designed to specially resist moisture and are waterproof on the exterior.


There are a variety of options when it comes to controlling your fan. Most ceiling fans come with a pull cord or wall control to turn it on/off. For the ultimate convenience there are remote controls to control both the lighting and the fan speeds.
