We all know that ceiling fans help cool things down when it gets hot in Boerne, TX, but did you know that with a simple flick of a switch on the fan that you can also help your heating? One of the top tips offered to help with heating is the installation of a ceiling fan, and the electrical pros from D’Spain Sales & Service, Inc., are here to help you with yours. First, let’s take a look at how a ceiling fan helps make your home more comfortable during the winter as it can during the summer.
Knowing Which Way to Switch
There is a little black side switch on the base of the fan that determines which way the fan will rotate. During the summer months, you want the fan to rotate counter-clockwise so that the cool air forces low-lying warm air toward the walls of your living spaces. The opposite is true for the winter months: you want to switch the fan so that it turns clockwise. The fan rotating clockwise doesn’t allow the warm air to settle; instead, it mixes with all the air in that living space, creating a more even heat.
Why Do I Need a Professional for Installation?
Ceiling fans can look deceiving. On the box, they look fairly light and easy to manage. The truth is that the base for any ceiling fan is fairly hefty. In fact, for a ceiling fan to be properly installed, it needs to be correctly anchored to a beam in your ceiling. Otherwise there won’t be enough support. The fan also needs to be connected directly to your electrical system, and when any appliance or component is connected directly to your electrical system, only an expert should handle the work. No one wants a wobbly, poorly connected fan in their home, and we can make sure yours isn’t!
