    using industrial ceilings fans in home

    If you’re in the market for an industrial ceiling fan, then you probably love the rugged, functional look of industrial home décor. This popular design style is marked by its use of raw materials, exposed hardware and explicit functionality, taking cues from equipment, lighting and more from old warehouses and factories. Despite the fact that industrial style ceiling fans look like they belong in industrial spaces, they’re made for residential use and are therefore efficient, stylish and relatively affordable.

  4. What to Know When Buying Bedroom Ceiling Fans

    It could be argued that bedroom ceiling fans are the most important ceiling fans out there. According to the National Sleep Foundation, the temperature at which you sleep is important, and sleeping at a cool 60 to 67 degrees Fahrenheit can help you rest better. Why?

With this in mind, how do you know which ceiling fans are best for the bedroom? Here are a few things to know before buying a bedroom fan.

    There’s nothing worse than trying to fall asleep when it’s hot in the bedroom. A good bedroom ceiling fan should provide a quiet cool without weighing down your utility bill. One of the ways we determine the cooling capability of any given fan is through what we call the Wind Speed Factor. The factor is calculated based on the width of the fan and the CFM (cubic feet per minute of airflow). Look for fans with a higher wind speed factor (measured in miles per hour) if your primary goal is to get the best cool-down possible in the bedroom.
