It's been getting pretty warm in our house and we are thinking of putting ceiling fans in all the bedrooms - are they any cooler than a standing fan - what are the advantages - or not - anyone with one or had one - any opinions welcome thanks.
I really want ceiling fans but dh is adamant that they don't really work - are they easy to install? I'm pregnant and due in September so will be really hot in the summer and think a ceiling fan might be the answer. any recommendations for a good one?
apparantly.. the ones you just attach to the ceiling are 'shit and barely turn round'. . I'm pregnant - I will get my God damned fan!!! looking at argos catalogue now.. slightly concerned about it falling on my head in bed - any need to be worried?
Ours is in centre of room so if it did fall it would only land on our feet! Would add it's been up for ten years and shows no sign of falling.
One minor irritation: when installing it did not occur to me or dh or electrician that the switch controlling it should be by the bed....so if we do want to switch it off in middle of night dh someone has to get out of bed.
well, ahem yes, Mrs M I tend to agree the Argos ones are cheap but not exactly nice looking.
Mine is completely white, not a lightbulb in sight (what is the point of the lights?) and no brass or cane. I think it's made by Solac but cannot find a pic of it on the net and cannot go in there to check make as DH is in there snoring head off.
That's it am definately getting one - it has already been 25 degrees here. And no they just attach were the ceiling light is no need to dig about in the loft etc. The have remotes too so I can be all geeky from bed -hehe
