Why Install a Ceiling Fan?
Ceiling fans are actually used to supplement both air conditioning and heating systems, primarily by circulating air throughout the room. The nature of forced air climate control often generates hot and cold spots throughout the home, due to the location of the vents and the temperature of the air. A ceiling fan helps mitigate this issue by facilitating greater air circulation throughout the room.
The other reason you might want a ceiling fan has to do with how other systems work. Centralized forced air systems often apply the same amount of air to the entire house, which is rarely necessary. A ceiling fan, though, only conditions a room that needs it. In winter, the system can be used to more evenly distribute the warm air from the furnace or heat pump. In summer, the fan can be used on its own to keep the room’s occupants cool.
However, it can also be used to supplement the output from a central air conditioning system. Ceiling fans are a great way to improve the efficiency of your climate control systems, as well as your own comfort during the more extreme weather seasons. You’d be surprised how much a ceiling fan or two can improve your home’s climate control situation.
When Are Ceiling Fan Repairs Necessary?
Ceiling fans are very simple in construction, which means they have far fewer ways to break down. They’re not invincible, however. There are still times when ceiling fan repair may be necessary. For example, if the bearings in the fan motor start to wear down, they will need to be replaced. If they are not, the motor will be put under more and more friction until it burns out entirely.
If your fan is making a grinding sound, it’s a good idea to have a professional check it out. Fans can also experience electrical short circuits, which makes them unreliable and creates a fire risk. If you notice your fan acting strangely, turn it off and schedule an appointment with an electrician.
