Traditional Ceiling Fans
The Perpetually Reinventing Traditional Ceiling Fan
Traditional ceiling fans can add beauty to a room as well as cool it down or warm it up. It's a combination of lighting and blades; it's armed and ready for duty. It creates overhead lighting for the room and generates cool air in summer and re-circulates warm air in the winter. It's a multi-faceted room conditioner by any definition.
The Traditional Ceiling Fan was invented around 1860-1870 by the Grand Duchess Rinaldi. It was never designed to cool the air. All it actually does is slowly evaporate the moisture in the air, which is called evaporative cooling. Initially, the fans were powered by a stream of running water. It wasn't until 1882 that a singer sewing machine motor was adapted for use by Philip Diehl to power the traditional ceiling fan.
Since its debut into the world the ceiling fan has undergone many changes, so that today we see our choices include lamps: up lights, down lights, decorative lights and assorted switches. Lights were only introduced with the ceiling fan when Philip Diehl stepped in with his modernizations. Since then, the ceiling fan has never stopped evolving to appeal to each new generation.
Use Traditional Ceiling Fans for Winter and Summer Comfort
The traditional ceiling fan is an economical room conditioner. As an investment, it is the least renowned of all the possible options. Its heyday was in the early 1900's, now rarely much is said about the way it can reduce your energy bill and bring comfort to your home.
The beauty of a Traditional Ceiling Fan is that it can lift up the hot air in the winter and re-circulate and evaporate the moisture in the summer. In the winter, you can run traditional ceiling fans clockwise to get the benefit of pulling the warm air from the ceiling and re-circulate the heat that always rises. In the summer, you can run traditional ceiling fans counter clockwise to cool your rooms as the moisture is captured and evaporated by the movement of the fan.
Get the most out of your traditional ceiling fans year round by using them to their optimum in both the summer and the winter months. You'll save money on your utility bills and you'll be more comfortable in your home. Invest wisely and be happy wintering and summering in the comfort of your home.
