Ceiling Fan Installation
Whether you’ve decided to have a ceiling fan installed or want to replace your old one, our team is qualified. We’ve been in the business for more than ten years, so you can trust us with your ceiling fan installation needs.
First, we will conduct an assessment of the wiring in the room to determine the difficulty of the job. This assessment also lets us determine how much the job will cost so we can give you this information upfront.
Ceiling fan installation can be a quick and easy process, but if the wiring in your home is faulty, it becomes a more difficult task. With the right wiring and switches and ample support, the ceiling fan installation process could take as little as an hour to complete.
However, if our technicians need to install new wiring, switches, or supports, it becomes more complex and will take us longer to complete. In that situation, we would have to run new wiring for both the switches and the actual fixture itself, which could result in more than a day’s worth of work.
We can install any make or model at any height. Regardless of the work required, our expert technicians will get the job done efficiently. We even have seasonal ceiling fan installation specials.
The Many Benefits of a Ceiling Fan
Although a popular choice, you might be wondering just how a ceiling fan can benefit you and your home. We’re here to answer that for you! Following are some of the many benefits of using a ceiling fan.
Increases Energy Efficiency and Saves Money
When you use a ceiling fan, your thermostat doesn’t have to work quite as hard. Because ceiling fans create a cool (or warm) breeze, you can raise the temperature on your thermostat.
This not only increases the energy efficiency of your home but also helps you spend less on your monthly utility bills. Additionally, if you install an Energy Star-rated fan, you’ll save even more money. Energy Star-rated ceiling fans are built to be more efficient.
Can Be Used All Year Long
Ceiling fans are a gift that just keeps giving; in addition to creating a breeze in the room, they can also warm the room.
Ceiling fans have a switch that controls the direction of the fan blades. The counter-clockwise motion is used to cool the room, while the clockwise motion moves warm air throughout the room without generating a draft.
Versatility cannot be understated, and ceiling fans are just that. You can install a ceiling fan in almost any room in your home to instantly add a touch of comfort.
Different styles of fans have different purposes, each beneficial for different rooms in the home. For a larger room, like the master bedroom, a ceiling fan can help to remove excess humidity; smaller rooms will become more welcoming with the addition of a small ceiling fan. No matter what space you’re trying to cool, a ceiling fan makes a great addition.
With all the different styles, sizes, and shapes, it’s impossible not to find a fan that suits the room. There are many options to choose from for any interior design, space, or need. The technicians at MZ Electric can walk you through them to help you decide which is right for you.
If you want to brighten the room and cool it at the same time, a ceiling fan accomplishes both in one fixture. Ceiling fans with built-in lights allow you to add another layer of light to the room.
Many of these types of fans also have a dimming feature, which makes them perfect for adding ambiance to the living room or as a reading light in the bedroom.
What Ceiling Fans Can Do for Your Home
More than three out of every four US homes already have ceiling fans, and it’s easy to see why. They’re often stylish fixtures that add something special to rooms, and they help you save on energy bills year-round.
Saving You Money on Cooling
Ceiling fans can help provide cooling and modulate temperatures in your home on hot summer days. Just be sure to run your ceiling fans in a counter-clockwise direction. This creates downward airflow that can provide a refreshing and cooling breeze even in homes without air conditioning.
Many air conditioning systems have a problem distributing cool air evenly. That leads to your home becoming too cool near the air conditioner and warm away from it. A ceiling fan installation can help you get more cooling for the same amount of power consumption with air conditioning.
A ceiling fan distributes cool air more evenly, allowing the entire space to achieve a consistent temperature at the set point for your air conditioner. Ceiling fans also make you feel cooler than you actually are, reducing the need for air conditioning.
That is due to the same reasons that windy winter days have a wind chill. The breeze cools you beyond the temperature achieved by the air conditioner, so you can run the AC less while still enjoying the same level of comfort.
Saving You Money on Heating
Home heating expenses are always a concern here in Littleton, CO, where it’s typically the largest single component of any home’s utility bills. A ceiling fan installation can help make more efficient use of heating during the winter months.
Always remember that you’ll need to reverse the fan direction once winter comes around to a clockwise orientation. While turning in this direction, the fan generates an updraft that disperses the warm air that collects near the ceiling.
That evens out the vertical temperature distribution in the room, so you aren’t heating hot air just for it to rush to the ceiling. Your heating system will cycle less often to maintain your set temperature, saving you money on your heating bills.
That is particularly effective in homes with high ceilings that can generate a significant temperature gradient. Some estimates show that simple recirculation from a ceiling fan can reduce heating bills up to 15 percent.
Improving the Style of Your Home
Of course, one reason that motivates people to get a ceiling fan installation is style. Ceiling fans come in many different designs that can match your home’s unique décor and provide a welcoming atmosphere. The choices are practically endless.
The shades over the lighting fixtures of your ceiling fan can come in many different designs. They’re typically glass and come in unique shapes and colors. Among the most popular options are clear glass, etched glass, and opal glass.
There are many finishes available for the fan hardware itself. These range widely, and there would be too many to list here, but some of the most common choices include:
- Brushed nickel
- Matte black
Fan blades often have elaborate designs and inlays or are sleek and simple. The choice is up to you, and the team here at MZ Electric can help you choose from our extensive catalog of reliable brands.
Getting the Right Size Ceiling Fan Installation
The size of your new ceiling fan can depend on a few critical factors. You’ll have to consider whether you’re going to prioritize style or function. There’s plenty of overlap, but sometimes your preferred look won’t be the most efficient.
In terms of generating airflow, the most efficient fans are the largest. You want the largest blades moving at the slowest speeds. This enables the blades to move through the air efficiently and consistently, while the large surface area still generates significant airflow.
When making your decision, the sizing criteria will be the blade size, called the sweep, and the cubic feet per minute of air displaced per watt. You’ll want to get an adequately sized fan to provide proper airflow for the specific room you’re installing it in. Larger rooms will need bigger fans, while smaller rooms can make do with less.
