Ceiling Fans in Winter?

Why not look at ceiling fans in winter? Most ceiling fans are designed with a summer/winter reversing switch – allowing the warm air created by heaters, which gathers up at the ceiling level, to be circulated around the room without drafty breezes. We have great offers on ceiling fans right now – ask one of our team in store to assist you.

Ventalux Bathroom exhaust fans

Why should I install an exhaust fan?

Bathrooms, laundries and kitchens are particularly prone to moisture problems caused by high humidity. Every time you run hot water, you create steam. That steam penetrates every crevice, and soon cools down and turns to water resulting in condensation. This feeds mold, mildew and even in some cases can contribute to structural rot.

Ceiling Fans

Ceiling fans have become popular because people have found they can save on energy costs while satisfying decorative needs and increasing personal comfort. A ceiling fan (without a light) draws on average 40 watts of power on medium speed. Based on 19 cents per kilowatt hour, it would cost less than 20 cents to operate your ceiling fan for 24 hours.

Fan Efficiency

There are many factors taken into account when making the selection of a ceiling fan.

The air volume flow produced by ceiling fans is important in determining the relative EFFICIENCY of the fan.

Air volume movement is measured in cubic meters per hour (m3/h) or cubic feet per minute (cfm).

1 cubic foot per minute = 1.6990108 cubic meters / hour

The air volume flow produced relative to the watts consumed gives a ratio expressed as cubic meters per hour per watt. ([m3/h]/W)
