    Stainless Steel Outdoor Ceiling Fans

    I get to talk to customers quite a lot every day. Sometimes, I get to help them fix a $300 mistake.

    Most of the customers I talk to come to me because they need to replace their fan. They made the mistake of buying a less expensive fan from a big box store instead. What they should have done is buy something of quality in the first place.

    A common complaint is about their outdoor fan. They meant to do something quick and easy. They went to one of the common chain stores and bought what they thought were outdoor ceiling fans. Yet, only a few years after installation, they already need a new fan.

    Not so "outdoor" after all!

    Outdoor ceiling fans from the big chain stores are prone to discolor. Much worse, the blade arms

    Imagine that ideal life.

    It's a beautiful day. A bit humid, but your trusty ceiling fan keeps a nice breeze blowing. You enjoy some much-needed rest.

    Then the heat hots up and... maybe your trusty ceiling fan isn't so trusty! You watch the blades slow and slow. They give away speed inexorably to oblivion.

    Ceiling Fans For Sloped Ceilings - Important Considerations

    March 17th, 2017

    The first thing you need to know about ceiling fans for sloped ceilings is that you'll have to put the fan up.

    We had a problem. One of our sales folks a few years ago... We insisted that to sell ceiling fans, he needed to know how to install one.

    But he hated heights. He wouldn't go up the ladder. He helped with the assembly over in the corner while we hung the fans.

    You can't sell a ceiling fan until you've been in the customer's shoes. So we made him go up the ladder. Eventually.

    You can put any of our fans on an angled or sloped ceiling except for a hugger fan, which only work on flat ceilings. Besides having to go up the ladder, there are a couple of other things you need to consider.

    How many fans will you need?

    How do you choose the correct size fan or fans?

    What is the right size downrod?

    If you have a sloped ceiling, do you need a special angled ceiling adapter?

    The first thing you should know is that there are lots of great ceiling fans for sloped ceilings. I'll talk you through these considerations.

    Let's start with the number of fans. How many ceiling

  4. Replace Your Ceiling Fan: Win the Battle for Peace and Efficiency

      When to Replace a Ceiling Fan

    • If you've cleaned your fan but it still makes noise,
    • your fan is older than 10 years old,
    • you have a pull chain but want a wall or remote control,
    • your fan uses incandescent lights rather than new, efficient LEDs,
    • or if your fan does not have an efficient DC electic motor.
    • Modern fans have energy efficient, quiet DC motors. Many with ceiling fans with lights are now made with LEDs which are brighter and much more efficient.
