In contrast to the regular heating fan, though , the heated ceiling fan has a heating element, which can be turned on or off to redirect the flow of warm air downward. The general public, especially those who live in two-story dwellings, have problems maintaining fascinating heat levels in their houses due to heat loss. Those that live in homes with high ceilings often find it takes much more energy to heat a home as the heat naturally escapes to the higher portions of the ceiling, or is released thru windows that aren't double-paned. Even with the best normal forced air, channeled heating systems, energy is wasted as the parts of the

home that don't need heating, are heated however. Heat tends upward, so if one were to precisely measure the temperature of a room with twelve feet ( 3.66 m ) ceilings, one would find higher temperatures toward the head of the ceiling. A warm ceiling doesn't translate into warm people, as the bottom 1/2 the room is the final part of the house to get heat.

The heated ceiling fan can at least partly correct this problem by redirecting the flow of air downward, and since it also reheats the air, temperature loss of air flowing downward is low. In houses that are two or more stories high, often the upper stories are a great amount hotter than the lower stories. Thermostats often measure the temperature in the bottom 1/2 the house with vented heating systems. So while folks on the bottom floor may still feel the house is too cold, those in the higher stories are customarily unpleasantly warm. In such cases, an installation of a heating ceiling fan in the main rooms of the home can, again, redirect the flow of heat to the 1st floor. Wattage used to warm up is normally much more efficient too sometimes less wattage than it takes to run a hairdryer-between 400-1400 watts. The projected cost to run the heating component and fan is about .05 US bucks ( Greenbacks ) an hour. Running the fan without the heating component costs roughly .01 $ an hour. The heated ceiling fan doesn't differ much in size. Most models are about 54 inches ( 1.37 m ) across. The heated ceiling fan could be a touch longer from ceiling to bottom of the fan to house the heating part.

Price for the heated ceiling fan is moderate. The Reiker model is just below three hundred Bucks per fan.

Hampton Bay ceiling fan sells a model about 50 Greenbacks above this cost. Both brands offer limited lifetime guarantee on the parts, and at least offer testimonials to the workability of the fan.

Hunter ceiling fans also has a heated ceiling fan that I encourage you to check out as Hunter's name is renowned for quality at a reasonable price.

The heated ceiling fan can take the place of a ceiling light fitting, but can be more difficult to install if wiring isn't in place for overhead lights, as is the case in several newly built homes.

If not available in one's home, installing a heating ceiling fan needs much more work as one must wire the room to accept a central light fitting. Unless one is experienced in home electronic systems, hiring an electrician to install wiring for a ceiling light or fan, is judicious, though it'll increase cost in installation.
