Ceiling Fans
Ceiling fans are the easiest and most affordable way to keep cool over summer. Most ceiling fans use about the same power as a 60-watt light globe which costs about 3c per hour to run. Even if you have an air conditioner, having a ceiling fan will move air around and over your skin and is a much more comfortable, efficient and effective way to keep cool. Using your ceiling fan together with your air conditioner can reduce your air conditioning bill by up to 40%. Fans located in outdoor areas should be protected from the elements, therefore are only recommended for outdoor rooms or alfresco areas. Outdoor fans must not be exposed to water under any circumstances and must have at least 2 walls of protection from wind.

If you have ceilings above 3 metres, you may require an extension rod. Most ceiling fans come with an optional extension rod but can easily be cut to suit your requirements.
Any ceiling fan should be at least 2.1 metres from the floor to the blades of the fan and at least 300mm from the ceiling.
Remote controls give you the convenience of being able to control the light and action of your fan from anywhere in the room and is recommended by Life Electrical.

Choosing The Correct Size Fan for Your Room

The correct size ceiling fan will help you get the most out of comfort and energy saving. If the fan is too small for your room it will not circulate enough air and it will be ineffective in summer and winter. If the fan is too big for the room it could overpower the room making it uncomfortable. For a sizing guide – 7m2 or smaller (29”-36”), 7m2-13m2 (36’-42”), 13m2-21m2 (44”), 21m2-37m2 (50”-54”).
