How to get your home into the shade with a white ceiling fans
When you’re looking for the perfect ceiling fan for your home, you may have to go outside.
But you may also have to look elsewhere if you want the cool night air to go unnoticed, the BBC has discovered.
How to install a white-coated ceiling fan White-coating your ceiling fans can help keep your house cooler by cooling down the air around you, which can cool your home.
The white coating can be applied to a variety of products, such as curtains, floor tiles, ceiling fans and electrical outlets, to keep your home from overheating and freezing, according to Home Depot.
However, white-coat ceiling fans may not always be the best choice for the best cooling effect.
In fact, according the manufacturer’s website, some ceiling fans have white coatings that can melt if you place them in direct sunlight.
“A white-faced ceiling fan is more likely to give you a white coat, which will make the fan stick out more,” says Jon Gorman, senior product manager at Home Depot Home Products.
However the white coating will also allow the fans to circulate more efficiently and stay in place.
“If you’re concerned about the fan’s performance, try using a lower-powered fan,” he says.
“White-coaching a fan can reduce the fan performance by as much as 50 per cent, but only for a short time.
A white-capped fan can last for a long time.”
If you’re worried about your ceiling fan overheating, you can try a fan with a low-power setting, which is rated to operate for 10 to 30 per cent longer.
But if you’re happy with the cooling effect of white-covered ceiling fans, you could try the white-laced fans with a blue coat instead, which have an extra layer of protective coating.
“For most of us, we will not need to install white-painted ceiling fans,” says Gorman.
“But for those who need to have the most effective cooling effect, white coat or blue-coiled fans may be more efficient than white-flowered ones.”
Which white-clad ceiling fan should I buy?
“It’s always important to check the manufacturer, but there’s no hard and fast rule,” says Ben Jones, director of product marketing at Philips.
“The manufacturers will have different advice for different consumers, so check with the manufacturer first.”
He suggests you check whether the manufacturer has a white coating that will help keep the fans from melting.
He also suggests checking if the product is suitable for the type of temperature you’re working at, and if the fans have a low power setting.
“You can also check the product for a variety on the manufacturer website,” he adds.
“And don’t forget to check if the fan can be safely used outdoors.
“One light can last about five hours and is more efficient in the long term. “
We’ve found that a white light can make a big difference,” he explains.
“One light can last about five hours and is more efficient in the long term.
But white lighting can also heat up the air and can make your ceiling feel warmer.
If you don’t have a white lamp, a blue light may work better.”
If the ceiling fans you buy are white-coloured, you might want to install blue-lamp or red-light fixtures to reduce the air coming into the fan, too.
If your ceiling is grey-colours or black-colour, you’ll need to make sure the fans can be turned on automatically by turning the light on.
If it’s not, you’re in for a frustrating day.
“It might be a bit of a hassle if your ceiling doesn’t have any white light,” says Jones, “but it’s a good way to save money.”
What to consider before you buy a white covered ceiling fan: If you live in a house with a large number of fans, consider installing a ceiling fan with more power than your house will allow, says Golan.
“Make sure you know the maximum speed of the fan before you make a decision,” he advises.
“Do you want to put a lot of power into a ceiling that is less efficient than you think it should be?”
“It depends on your budget, so you should also check if it’s cheaper to buy the fan and install it yourself.”
