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.

If you’re looking to invest in your home and make some cosmetic changes, remember to make a plan for your home lighting installation! Lighting in the home is important because, in addition to adding value, it adds an element or look and feel that makes people feel welcomed. It appeals to the visual sense but also impacts your day-to-day functionality and productivity.
That feeling of home we all have is something that we want our families and friends to feel as soon as they walk in. This also applies to potential home buyers if you happen to be selling! You’d be surprised how a few tweaks here and there can completely transform your space and impact someone’s first impression.
We think that bad lighting is a missed opportunity, so when putting together your plan it’s important that you focus on eliminating harsh/dull lighting, and select illumination sources that elevate your space whilst serving their purpose. This will vary from room to room, as each space has a different purpose.
We are covering 5 simple ways to increase the value of your home- whether that’s to prepare for selling, or simply giving your current space the TLC that it deserves.
