If you think Ceiling fans are a thing from the past and that they have been made obsolete by air conditioning units you’re wrong. Please don’t take it personally most people think exactly the same as you - but it still doesn’t make it right. Heating and cooling systems are something that people have looked for since the dawn of time (well at least since the human race started worrying about comfort). Thousands of years ago ancient civilizations were already using fan systems to move the air around to cool them down. Of course back then this was something only the most powerful and influent people could afford the majority of the population had to deal with heat and cold any other way they could. Thousands of years had to go by until the rest of the population could use similar fan systems to turn their homes more comfortable. It was the introduction of the ceiling fans. Although not as "exotic" as having someone slowly fanning some palm tree leafs over your head ceiling fans are much more efficient at moving air. And everyone knows how much better it feels to have a breeze blowing over you on those hot summer days. Even though the air is at the exact same temperature as its surrounding environment the air movement has a chill affect that helps lower the skin temperature. Think of it as traveling in your car on a hot summer day with the windows full open... doesn’t it feel good? That’s exactly the same thermodynamic principle that has been known for thousands of years - well before cars were invented.
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.
