Summer is only a few weeks away, and at Passion Lighting in Grapevine, we know how warm it can get in north Texas during the summer months. When it comes to your home, some of the most important fixtures, especially during the summer, are your ceilings fans. We’ve written about updating your fans before, but it’s always a good idea to think about your fans before the truly warm temperatures set in during June and July.
When it comes to fans, there are a few questions you can ask yourself, such as where you need new fans, how often the fans will be on, and what sort of controls you’ll need. Keep reading to learn more!
Which Rooms Could Benefit the Most From a New Fan?
There are a few rooms you spend a bit more time in during the summer. At the top of the list is likely your living room and your bedroom. With new fans in these spaces, you can look forward to a cool and comfortable summer.
Great for Gatherings
When guests come to visit, you’re going to congregate in the living room, and as you add more bodies, the inside temperature is going to rise. Even though you have central air, keeping the air moving with a ceiling fan can make the room feel a few degrees cooler.
You may also spend time in the living room with your family, watching movies or playing games. The kids are out of school, and while you want them to play outside, it can get too hot to be outdoors for too long. A cool living room can be the perfect place to crash after an hour or two of running around outside.
Sleep Better During the Summer
As for the bedroom, a new fan fixture can make for better sleeping during the summer. You don’t want the room to be too hot, and adding a modern fan can help keep the temperature at a reasonable level. Again, you likely have the air conditioner running, but a well-placed ceiling fan can keep the room cool and help you lower your summer energy bills.
If you plan on going to bed late or sleeping in on weekends during the summer, then make sure your bedroom is comfortable by looking for new fans today!
Don’t Forget Outdoor Fans
Summer is also a time for sitting outside during the evening, just as long as the heat and humidity aren’t too bad. If you have a covered porch or backyard deck, then outdoor fans can be the way to go. Even though it may still be in the mid 80s at 7:00 p.m. you can keep the air moving by turning on the overhead fan. You can install multiple fans along your porch so that the covered sitting areas are nice and cool when you’re ready to go outside for the evening.
If you’re going to have the neighbors over for a backyard barbecue or just to enjoy a cool drink on the porch, then find new outdoor fans today and make sure your outside spaces are perfect for entertaining. You and your guests will both be glad for the proper air circulation!
