How do you save money in your home? Some of your major appliances are the biggest money drainers, but we at In-House Electric know how you can save big with a simple home ceiling fan installation near Redmond. Ceiling fans work by pulling air from inside your home and redistributing it to cool down different rooms. It’s cheaper and more energy-efficient than an air conditioning system, so you can put off turning on the AC until the summer swelter becomes too much.
Ceiling fans are also helpful in winter because the air it pulls and redistributes is already warm within your home. It’s like an extra helping hand for your heating element when the weather outside is cold.
Typically, a home ceiling fan has 10 to 15 years, but the longevity depends more on upkeep and use. Routine inspections of your home’s electrical system will include ceiling fan inspections, so you can deter any issues by catching them early. However, if you experience any of the following signs of a problem with your ceiling fan, then it’s time to call in professionals to have a look.
- You can hear the motor running, but the ceiling fan blades aren’t moving. Or moving slowly.
- Burning smell whenever the ceiling fan is switched on.
- Certain speeds on your ceiling fan don’t work anymore.
- The switch doesn’t work, but the ceiling fan will spin and continue to spin if you push it by hand.
