The advantage to hugger ceiling fans is that they take up less space and look great. The standard model is usually three speeds.
Many people prefer ceiling hugger fans because they take up a lot less space. In rooms with lower ceilings they are very useful because people are less likely to bump their heads into them. Another advantage to a ceiling hugger fan is that the air it moves is less likely to disrupt activities going on in the room.
The light fixture on modern fans is lower but puts out a lot more light. One big disadvantage to many ceiling fans with lights is that they don’t put out much light. Since halogen lamps are used, hugger ceiling fans put out more light which enables people to enjoy activities such as reading, watching television and using the computer.
A ceiling hugger fan would be ideal in an apartment or other cramped space where circulation of air is needed. They are particularly useful in older buildings that may not have good circulation of air.
Hugger ceiling fans are ideal for smaller rooms such as bathrooms and bedrooms where a traditional ceiling fan might take up more space. Since they only have three blades they don’t make as much noise or disrupt sleep like traditional fans can.
Outdoor Hugger Ceiling Fans
Some people may not realize that hugger ceiling fans can also be used outdoors. This means that the fans can be used in places such as decks and porches where circulation of air is needed.
This can help a person cool off on the porch on a hot summer evening or enjoy a book on the deck. It can also give people enough light for outdoor activities such as barbecuing, eating and reading.
One potential use for an outdoor hugger ceiling fan would be to use over the barbecue. This would get rid of the smoke and the heat from the barbecue.
