Bathroom fan with light – Their aerodynamic shape from the bottom to the top maximizes the air movement as it minimizes the power-consuming turbulence that reduces the efficiency of the fan. Because these sculpted leaves do more work with less effort, they do well with a smaller engine. Flat blade fans can also be effective, but do not match the high cfm-per-watt performance of these blades unique designs.
When the summer air becomes quiet, a man-made breeze on a porch or patio provides welcome cooling. And can even blow away mosquitoes. These fans, also known as overhead patio fans, have sealed housings and electrical components that are capable of withstanding humidity and humidity. They come in two types: they are certified for damp but covered places like porches, garages and basements and certified for wet, exposed places such as decks, pergolas and terraces.
Take it outside! Note that outdoor fans must move higher air volumes than indoor models – at least 6,000 cfm. To keep bugs away, go for at least 8,000 cfm. In the coastal areas, look for ABS plastic blades and non-stainless stainless steel housings of plastic or marine quality that will liquid salt air. When replacing a ceiling fixture with one of these, get a model with a remote control.
