Tips for Buying Fans
Homeowners have many options for buying fans. Some fans, such as ceiling fans, are incorporated into the design of the home. Most others are movable accessories that can be stored when not in use. Options include floor fans, standing fans, box fans, desk fans, window fans, and others.
Ceiling fans add beauty, value, and comfort to a home. The addition of a ceiling fan warrants careful consideration and planning. One important consideration for choosing a ceiling fan is whether you want lighting to be incorporated into the fixture. Energy efficiency is another consideration when buying a ceiling fan. It pays to research the efficiency ratings of various ceiling fans before making a purchase.
Floor Fans / Standing Fans:
Floor fans can be either stationery or oscillating. Some floor fans can be configured either way. Floor fans are also sometimes referred to as standing fans.
Like the name suggests, box fans are square and “boxy”. They are ideal for use in windows with windowsills, but can also be used in other areas. They can be placed on the floor, but you might need to set them on top of something for them to be effective. Box fans are often affordably priced.
Window fans are designed to be placed in a window. When buying a window fan, it is recommended that you take into consideration the size and configuration of the window where the fan will be used.
These are only a few tips for buying fans. More extensive help is available from the fan retailers listed in our directory. Any of these retailers will be happy to provide additional advice and assistance with your purchase.
