Many people don’t like putting in ceiling fans because they think they look big and clunky, or because of all the overhead space they take up. In addition, in homes with lower ceilings, ceiling fans can often become hazards because taller people can bump their heads on them. The amount of air disturbed by a larger ceiling fan can often disrupt activities and make a room very uncomfortable. The noise of a ceiling fan can also be a distraction or a nuisance when a person is trying to do something like watch TV or read.
The answer to this problem may be to install a small ceiling fan. A small ceiling fan is usually one that is under 42 inches in diameter. Small ceiling fans are powerful enough to move air without disrupting the room or getting in your way.
These fans can easily be wired into any place where a light fixture is located. This means that ceiling fans can now be installed in almost any home. Even apartments and other structures normally too small for ceiling fans are just right for the smaller fans.
A small ceiling fan with light is a great way to get more light and a blow a breeze into a room. Since ceiling fans these days use modern halogen lamps they now give out as much light as regular lighting fixtures at a lower price. Another advantage to the use of small ceiling fans is that they are cheaper to operate than air conditioning which can reduce electric bills. In addition to that they are less disruptive than tabletop fans. Small ceiling fans now come in all styles and shapes including brass and modern shapes. They are as decorative as the larger fans without taking up all the space. Most small ceiling fans have the same classic design as their larger brethren.
Outdoor Ceiling Fan
Many people may not realize it but ceiling fans can also be used outdoors. Outdoor ceiling fans can be used to cool and ventilate areas such as covered lanais, pool areas and decks. They can also be used on patios. The use of an outdoor ceiling fan can make it possible to enjoy an evening on the deck or a pleasant sojourn by the pool. They can also be used in garages, sheds and other outdoor work areas. All in all, a small ceiling fan may just fit the bill in many home situations.
