Tips and Advice


When the temperature goes up, a fan creates a welcome cooling draught. The temperature felt can even be as up to 4.5 ° C lower than the room temperature!
However, a fan is not an air conditioner: it does not actually lower the temperature, unless it is positioned to bring cooler air from the outside into the house. Therefore, is not very useful to leave a fan running when leave a room or the house.

Summer and Winter

Ceiling fans improve the comfort of a home and not only in summer! They can even help reduce your air conditioning and heating costs.In summer, the fan directs the air downwards to create a cool breeze. The blades then rotate counter-clockwise. In winter, the air is drawn up towards the ceiling so that the warm air, which tends to accumulate there, can be pushed down and distributed evenly throughout the room. The unit should then operate at low speed.


To be effective, a fan must be chosen according to the size of the room where it will be installed. The larger the room, the longer the blades must be. The most common fan on the market has 52″ blades.

Choosing the right fan size is not everything. You must also make sure that all the conditions are met to obtain a good air output. The main criteria to consider are the number of blades, their dimensions and degree of inclination (ideally 12 to 15 degrees), as well as the fan speed.

A ceiling fan should ideally be located 8 to 10 feet above the floor and never less than 7 feet. It should also be installed at least 18 inches from the adjacent wall or the lower part of a sloped ceiling.
