    The Best Ceiling Fan Blades for Keeping the Bugs Away (and everything else)

    May 19th, 2017

    I was just visiting my Mother for Mother’s Day. Everyone else went on vacation to some island, and that means I got to go to Texas to take care of Mom.

    I’m kidding. I love my Mom, she’s a wonderful, beautiful woman. Texas wasn’t bad, vacation was good, and my Mom was great.

    You know what’s not great? Texas bugs. Some of those flies could down a Cessna 152.

    One night I wanted to cook some of my legendary barbecue for Momma. She has an outdoor ceiling fan. Travesty of travesties, her Ceiling Fan Expert Son hadn’t made sure she had the right ceiling fan or ceiling fan blades to keep the bugs away!

    So let me help you fix that, Mom. And everyone else.

    First of all - and this may seem silly - but it’s important to get a ceiling fan with blades! Many of our competito

      1. Emerson Carrera Grande Eco
      2. Monte Carlo Minimalist
      3. Fanimation Distinction DC

    Bedroom ceiling fans must offer quiet power and fine control. Premium fans quietly and efficiently move over 6500 CFM and make at least 3.6 MPH of wind. Look for a 6-speed control with dimming lights.

    Steve knows the real story behind ceiling fan light kits. He's been doing this for years, and he knows what light kits work with what fans. You can't always trust the word, "Universal" when it comes to ceiling fan light kits!

    Ceiling Fan Light Kits -
    How to Buy One that Works

    April 21st, 2017

    When you do an Internet search for "ceiling fan light kits", most of what you see relates to, "doesn't work."

    This is because people bought cheap fans made with the cheapest components. Cheap materials. It happens. Many use the opportunity to replace their old fan with a new, more energy efficient fan that moves more air. Some like their fan and wish to replace only the light kit.

    Choosing the right light kit for your ceiling fan can feel like rocket science to the uninitiated.

    Luckily, I'm initiated. I actually know a little rocket science, too, but I

    Sometimes you don't want your ceiling fans to make a design statement. Sometimes you just want them to keep the air moving and your place cool. Felix, as always, has you covered.

    White Ceiling Fans that Blend In -
    Interior Design Trends

    April 14th, 2017

    There is a definite interior design trend that is pushing our industry. I'm talk about the introduction of larger ceiling fans. This also means white ceiling fans are becoming even more popular. It used to be that for a fifteen by fifteen room (about 200 square feet), you'd want a 52 inch fan.

    Well, things have changed.

    The biggest change is the introduction of the DC motor to the ceiling fan industry. DC motors are far more efficient and provide more torque using less electricity. Manufacturers that have adopted DC Motors can design ceiling fans that are much larger than before. DC Motors handle the extra torque necessary without the motor overheating.

    Electric Ceiling Fans -
    Terry's Favorite DC Motor Choices

    April 7th, 2017

    When we talk about electric ceiling fans, there are so many options. If you are looking for electrical efficiency, Direct Current (DC) Electric Motors are the way to go. Ceiling fan manufacturers are now installing energy efficient Light Emitting Diode (LED) Lights. You have to be careful though - LEDs do not all put out the same amount of light as older light bulbs. If you're not sure where to start, give me a call and I'll help you narrow down your choices.

    To start, here are my favorite DC Motor Electric Ceiling Fans:

    1) Emerson Carrera Grande Eco DC Electric Ceiling Fan
    Everyone loves the Emerson Carrera Grande. It's a great classic yet modern looking ceiling fan - in the trade, we call this style transitional.
