Types Of Ceiling Fans You Can Have Installed

When you choose HedgeHog Electric’s installation services, there are a variety of ceiling fans you can have installed.

Standard Ceiling Fans

Standard Ceiling Fans

Most homes will sport a standard ceiling fan in at least one of the rooms. These ceiling fans generally have 4-5 blades and at least one light in the middle, though some are designed to be more along the lines of a chandelier. You will also typically have a downrod to allow your ceiling fan to hang down.

Ceiling Fans Without Lights

Ceiling Fans Without Lights

Not everyone wants lights with their ceiling fans. While ceilings fans often provide double duty as ambient lighting, you can find plenty of ceiling fans that don’t come with lights. These types of fans are great for rooms that already have plenty of natural light.

Energy-Efficient Ceiling Fans

Energy-Efficient Ceiling Fans

There are energy-efficient ceiling fans that receive an Energy Star rating, which means that they use 20% to 30% less energy than what the federal standards require of manufacturers. Some of the visual differences with energy-efficient ceiling fans are the sleeker, aerodynamic fan blades, allowing for less stress on the motor, as well as having integrated lighting.

Low-Profile Ceiling Fans

Low-Profile Ceiling Fans

For individuals who have lower ceilings but still want some of the air movement benefits of ceiling fans, low-profile ceiling fans are perfect. These ceiling fans are flush mounted to the ceiling, with only a small amount of clearance between the fan blades and the ceiling. As there is less space, the low-profile ceiling fan is less effective at moving the air in a room, but it does still work.

Remote Control And Smart Ceiling Fans

Remote Control And Smart Ceiling Fans

If you have high ceilings, mobility issues, or just want more convenient ceiling fan access, then a remote control ceiling fan might be for you. With this type of fan, you often have control over the on and off setting, 2-4 speeds, and lights. There are also smart ceiling fans where you use an app on your smartphone as a remote control.

Damp & Wet Ceiling Fans

Damp and Wet Ceiling Fans

Regular ceiling fans can have their motors damaged in humid areas, so it is best if you look for ceiling fans that are rated for damp and wet conditions. Individuals who live in areas with high humidity or who are looking for an outdoor ceiling fan for a porch or gazebo will find damp and wet ceiling fans have blades that are warp-resistant and moisture-resistant motors.

Commercial Ceiling Fans

Commercial Ceiling Fans

While a regular ceiling fan can be used commercially, there are commercial ceiling fans that are designed to circulate area around much larger facilities than standard ceiling fans. These commercial-grade fans are ideal for rooms that are between 10’-25’, and if you add additional commercial fans, you can use them effectively in even larger rooms.
