Upgrade, Replace Or What? – Improving The Ceiling Fans In Your Home

Posted on

Ceiling fans are a great way to improve the air circulation in your home. When the air is circulated, the heating and cooling system will work more efficiently and you'll remain more comfortable throughout the year. Here, you'll find a few tips to help you spruce up your existing ceiling fans, as well as a few tips for buying a new one.

Keep or Replace                                                                      

If you're trying to decide if it's time to replace the existing ceiling fan because it's looking aged and doesn't fit well with your décor, there's a few considerations to weigh. For example, is there anything in particular that you don't like about the existing fan? Is it noisy?

If you're considering replacement due to appearance, you might be able to save yourself some work. Rather than replacing the entire ceiling fan unit, you can upgrade the lighting fixtures or the blades to give it a whole new look.

Take some time to go online and search the many ceiling fan lighting fixtures that are available. Just pay attention to measurements and double-check all of them before ordering.

Tip: If you are unsure about fit, contact the seller – they'll be able to provide you with the best first-hand knowledge of the part and give you a good idea if it will fit or not. If there's any doubt that it'll work out, make sure that you can return the item for either a refund or a different item.

Upgraded Blades

If you live in a damp climate, you may have noticed that the wooden fan blades have begun to bow a bit. Fortunately, you don't have to replace the fan over and over again. Instead, upgrade the blades to plastic blades. The plastic blades are easy to clean and they will not absorb the moisture that's in the air. They will also perform just as well as the alternative.

If moisture isn't a problem, you have all kinds of options to consider for upgrading the blades – you can find decorative blades of different sizes, colors and shapes to really make your ceiling fan stand out in your home.

Always take your time as you shop for things such as this. If your measurements are off, the entire project could be put on hold until you can find a replacement that will work for what you need it to do. Let the professionals assist you if you have any questions at all about the ceiling fan lighting fixtures and blades.
