How to Use a Paddle Fan

You probably think ceiling fans are just seasonal products but they can actually be used all year round. In the summer time you can use a ceiling fan to stay cool.

Paddle fans do not change the actual temperature and operate similarly to wind chill in the winter. It changes the perceived temperature on your skin by fanning the heat away from your body. 

In the winter, by reversing the fan, you will be redistributing warm air from the ceiling throughout the room

Size/Pitch

There are many different style ceiling fans available on the market today. Standard fans are usually between 44” and 52” blade span. When picking out a ceiling fan you should really consider CFM or cubic foot per minute. CFM is the measurement of how many cubes of air the fan actually moves.

Fan pitch or blade angle is also important. The angle determines resistance to air. Greater angles of 14 to 16 degrees mean more resistance and circulation.

WHY SHOULD YOU TRUST US?

A few review sites have placed this at the bottom of their articles. So here is our take: Our mission is to find reliable products for you to buy. Other review sites may say this as well.

However, we don’t love every product. Quite frankly, it costs us way too much money in repair costs to support less reliable brands.

In fact, we sell fewer brands than most appliance stores. Here is why:

We feel it is our responsibility to repair your appliances after you buy them.

We now have 30 service technicians, each averaging 8-10 calls a day Monday through Friday, plus another 110 on Saturday. That's over 30,000 service calls logged in one year.

The labor rates of fixing an appliance do not come close to the true cost in any product’s warranty period.

That is why no major retailer has a service department. It costs too much labor, money and time.

Our Blog is a bit different than most others you will read. We cannot write glowing reviews of unreliable products.

Hopefully, the bloggers and organizations who write such glowing product reviews for every brand consider servicing these products first. Only then they will understand the consequences of their marketing.
