A ceiling fan can be a great way to cool down a room. When choosing a ceiling fan, consider the type and size of the space you want to cool, the style of the fan and any special features you may want.
Ceiling fans may be used in both indoor and outdoor areas, but outdoor spaces require outdoor ceiling fans, which are waterproof and weather resistant. Also, consider the size of the area you want to cool. A larger space will call for a fan with a longer blade span and may even require more than one fan.
Choose a fan that complements your decor and appeals to you aesthetically. You'll find fans in Victorian, traditional and contemporary styles, among others. Ceiling fans also come in a variety of wooden finishes, including oak, rosewood, walnut and cherry wood, as well as metal.
Finally, consider additional features. Ceiling fan lighting kits can help brighten your room. If you have a high ceiling, consider a remote or wall control. For help with heating, look for a fan that can spin in a clockwise direction to circulate heat through the room.
At Walmart, you'll find a large selection of ceiling fans at Every Day Low Prices.
