Once your fan is mounted you can add lights to make your ceiling fan serve more than one purpose and be an even better addition to your home. Lights can be added while mounting the fan, and there are three types of lighting methods to choose from: downlights, uplights, or one of the popular light kits. Uplights and downlights are just as they sound with uplights pointing toward the ceiling, and downlights pointing toward the center of the room. Each provides a slightly different effect. Uplights emanate an aura-like gleam to dress up a ceiling, and downlights brighten an entire room with a radiant glow. Light kits also come with many ceiling fans and can be classified as a type of downlight. The light kit replaces any central lighting that was previously hanging from the ceiling.
Wet rated outdoor fans are designed to handle direct exposure to rain. They can be installed in virtually any indoor or outdoor location, covered or uncovered. So you can install a wet rated outdoor ceiling fan in an open gazebo, lattice covered lanai or other similar shade structure as well as under a covered porch or patio. Because wet rated outdoor fans are pretty much water tight, you can actually clean them by hosing them off...which is a great reason to buy a wet rated fan even if all you need is a damp rated model.
A down rod is nothing more than an extension, really. The higher your ceiling, the longer you want the down rod to be. If you have ten foot ceilings, you should have a one-foot down rod. Down rods increase total airflow and bring the blades themselves closer to where you need it.
Decor - Installing a ceiling fan can change the decor of any room, large or small. Palm-leaf fans can make your outdoor space or patio look more like the tropics, while a rustic, bronze fan can accent your traditional style living room or bedroom. Whatever the decor, there is a fan made for it. A fan is a wonderful complement that can really bring any room together.
