Black ceiling fan used in a home for sale in Ohio
The black ceiling fan was installed to cool the home after a contractor installed ceiling vents in the ceiling, the Wall Street, Philadelphia and Ohio Department of Health said Thursday.
The fan is rated for 10 hours of operation, according to the agency.
The house was sold for $1,300 to a buyer in the Columbus area.
The homeowner was quoted at $3,200 for the home, which is near the Pennsylvania border and about 25 miles (40 kilometers) east of Cleveland.
The buyer said he wanted a home that would fit his needs.
He said he did not want a small house or one that was in need of major repairs, but he wanted something that would provide him with a comfortable, well-ventilated living space, the Health Department said.
The ceiling fan, which comes with a battery, is rated at 30 hours of continuous use, the agency said.
In the last five years, about 4,600 ceiling fans have been installed, according the department.
About 30 percent of the devices have been used for heating, it said.
