Facts and details to help you decide if a Hampton Bay fan is the most suitable for your home or workplace needs.
Tim Marston's insight:

 

Hampton Bay ceiling fans are one of the most popular brands on the market today. Having been in business for some years, customers come to ask for the fans by name.

 

Their selection ranges in color, style, by light fixture, number of lightbulbs, and definetely by price. When shown in sales flyers, I have seen some models for as little as $30.

But they are perfect for the lighting fixture and probably look great in the right room.

I really love looking for old things and in particular fans. I know, that sounds rather boring, but really, the designs and mechanisms were so unique way back when.

 

It's amazing that there was so much selection. I would have never imagined that the designs had changed so rapidly through the years.

 

The online museum is a neat place to peruse. I only wish I lived close enough to see the real fans.

Take a look at these luxury fans. If you look closely, you will note that the ceiling fan does not have blades. It is one pice that moves back and forth.

Sasha Andreev shows Joan Steffend how to make great home accessories out of old ceiling fan blades.
Tim Marston's insight:

 

If you don't feel right about throwing things in the garbage, even if they are broken or no longer useful, why not recycle them and make them re-useful?

 

These old ceiling fans blades have been repurposed to make a gorgeous fireplace screen. They are probably even painted to match the decor in the room.

 

I still have my old fans sitting in the basement, since I didn't know what to do with them. I don't have a fireplace, but maybe I can think up an idea that is just as appealing as this.

Tim Marston's insight:

 

When designing your new home or redecorating your existing space, it is important to arrange things according to the ancient art of Feng Shui.

Today, there are many decisions to make when choosing your accessories, but if you follow these tips, I am sure you will find both ceiling fans and light fixtures that match the decor and fit into one of the five elements of Feng Shui.

Ceiling Fan Basics : ENERGY STAR

Ceiling Fan Basics : ENERGY STAR | Air Circulation and Ceiling Fans | Scoop.it

"Ceiling fans should be installed, or mounted, in the middle of the room and at least 7 feet above the floor and 18 inches from the walls. If ceiling height allows, install the fan 8 - 9 feet above the floor for optimal airflow."

When choosing an energy efficient ceiling fan (and all other applicances, for that matter), choose models that clearly display the Energy Star logo.

 

The US Environmental Protection Agency has put together a good section on choosing the right size fan.

"Cast or reproduction antler chandeliers are a great alternative to real antler chandeliers.  They're more affordable, look great, weigh much less and are UL listed."

Tim Marston's insight:

 

I have to admit that these are not my cup of tea.

 

At the same time, they would be beautiful in a cabin in the woods or even a lodge.

 

The other thing I really like about the family that makes these is they do not use the real antlers.

 

These are synthetically made, so that makes me real happy :)

Great tip for keeping the mosquitoes away. I don't have the pesky biters in my house, but when I am on vacation, I can't stand them near my bed.

 

Turning the ceiling fan on at night not only helps with the humidity, but also to keep the bugs away.
