    A Guide to Stainless Steel Outdoor Ceiling Fans

    Updated May 2021

    Many people buy inexpensive outdoor ceiling fans from big box stores hoping to save some money. However, they often end up replacing the fixture within a few years, after the fan breaks down or wears out. Fortunately, by understanding why low-quality options aren’t worthwhile and what to look for in a stainless steel outdoor fan, you can purchase a beautiful model that lasts.

    The Benefits of Outdoor Ceiling Fans

    WHAT TO CONSIDER WHEN PURCHASING AN OUTDOOR PORCH CEILING FAN

    1. THE SIZE OF THE SPACE

  • How to Save Energy During the Summer

    With increased AC use in the summer, it’s a crucial time to save energy in other ways. For example, by upgrading your lighting and increasing the effectiveness of your ceiling fans, you can reduce your utility bills. Here’s what you need to know to get started.

    Lighting

    When choosing bulbs, stick with light-emitting diodes (LEDs) or compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs). Both are more energy-efficient than traditional options, such as halogens and incandescents. In fact, LEDs and CFLs use 25% to 80% less energy. Although they’re more expensive initially, the investment will pay off over time.

    Also, make sure the bulbs you choose are ENERGY STAR®-qualified. This symbol is backed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and indicates that a product is energy-efficient, protecting the environment and saving you money. Additionally, upgrade your lighting fixtures—including your desk lamps and porch lights—to ENERGY STAR-qualified products. They generally deliver more even lighting and come with dimming features, enhancing the look of your home.

    Next, install light-colored curtains throughout your home to allow more natural light to enter via your windows. Finally, paint and decorate your rooms with light hues, such as lavender, bright orange, or peach, to brighten the house naturally during the daytime.

    A ceiling fan is a home staple, both for its air conditioning abilities and its residential charm. While a standard five-blade iteration is what typically comes to mind, there are a wide variety of styles and features available for this overhead fixture. Here are a few types of ceiling fans that can fit any homeowner’s style needs.

    Finding a Ceiling Fan for Your Needs

    1. Ceiling Fans With Lights

    For a duo of overhead lighting and air circulation, ceiling fans with built-in lights are a useful choice. This type of ceiling fan has diverse options to suit a vast spread of design visions, from drum shades to lantern lights and chandeliers. Some fixtures will have uplight options, meaning that they have lighting facing the ceiling as well as towards the room. This option can become a stylish accent to amplify a warm glow in a room. If you can’t find exactly what you’re looking for, we can even custom build a fixture to align with your vision.
