One of our favourite new year activities is home improvements! It's safe to say that most of us have spent a significant amount of time at home over the past couple of years. You may have had more time to look around the house and see all of the costly home renovations you've been imagining. The good news is there are inexpensive home improvements that you can get done quickly and without breaking the bank.
Beat the heat with a quality fan!
Summer is coming in hot, and with it, the scorching heat! If you don't cope well with the heat, perhaps it's time to invest in a fan or cooling system! There's nothing worse than being stuck at home on hot and sticky summer day and night without something to keep you cool.
Even if you already have an air conditioning system, it's always a good idea to have a fan in case your power goes out or your system breaks down. In fact, a fan can help circulate the cool air that air conditioning produces! They are the most cost-effective way to keep you cool, they keep your air fresh and provide ‘white noise’ which most people rave about!
We have a wide variety of wall, ceiling, exhaust, indoor and outdoor fans that will help you, along with all of the accessories that you need. When investing in a fan, we think that besides being a functional addition to your home, you should consider the design factor and ensure that it complements your space. Our collections are aesthetically pleasing, and we've broken them down into groups below to help you find the perfect fan to suit your space- easy breezy!
First things first, the direction of your fan rotation must be considered each season. During warmer months, your fan should rotate counter-clockwise. This helps keep your space cooler and more comfortable as it pushes the cold air downwards. During the cooler months, you can change it to clockwise, and it will help keep your space warm.
