Ceiling fans with lights is one of the newest types of fans in the market. An ordinary AC or DC ceiling fan can become excellent equipment desired in many locations with just an added fixed or detachable light kit. They’re popular choices for home and office appliances, and here are some of the reasons why:
Ceiling fans with lights are space-savers. You won’t need to purchase separate lighting such as wall lights or close to ceiling lights for your room as long as the ceiling fan’s light kit is bright enough.
Ceiling fans with lights are energy-efficient. According to market research, most standard ceiling fans have a maximum wattage of 80W. To compete in the market, ceiling fans with light also conform to this norm, efficiently using only up to 80W for power consumption. However, keep in mind that ceiling fans with lights have both ventilation/cooling and lighting functionalities. Hence, when contrasted to other ceiling fan types that only serve as chilling apparatuses, ceiling fans with lights are evidently considered energy-savers.
Ceiling fans with lights are handy multipurpose apparatuses. It’s obvious - who wouldn’t like 2-in-1 products like ceiling fans with lights, right? These items illuminate the room while constantly directing the airflow in the space, allowing one to relax or concentrate on the work on hand. When there is a need to exit the room, one controller can turn both the fan and the light kit off with just a button push. Convenient and fast, a simple comfort to everyday living.
Ceiling fans with lights are stunning statement pieces. Lighting fixtures such as chandeliers are the most common featured pieces in rooms. Typically, these items draw the curiosity of onlookers to themselves with their beautiful allures, striking styles, and sometimes oversized appearances. With these aspects in mind, it’s not surprising that ceiling fans with lights can also be attention-grabbers in homes and commercial spaces. In fact, many homeowners in Australia’s beach areas use tropic-rated ceiling fans with lights as alternative highlight pieces rather than IP65 pendant lights.
Some Considerations Before Buying a Ceiling Fan with Light
People often have criteria for judging whether they should buy a specific item or not. We have demands on our things, which make up an ideal version of the item we're looking for. The same goes when we're out to buy a ceiling fan with light for our rooms. We always want the best model with the latest trendy features that can accommodate our needs for a cooling apparatus while staying within the budget range.
One standard benchmark we can use to decide which ceiling fan to buy is its overall size. Generally, bigger fans are for larger rooms and shorter fans for small areas. The proportionality of ceiling fan sizes and empty spaces is desired for maximum benefits while maintaining the most efficient performance. This is one of the reasons why manufacturers produce home-use ceiling fans with lights in various sizes, starting from the smallest 6" to the gigantic 100" diameter lengths.
You also need to consider different aspects of your installation location. Your ceiling type (parallel to the floor surface or sloped) and room height are essential factors to ponder. After all, you may need an extension downrod for your desired ceiling fan with light if you have a high ceiling, or change your optimal choice to a hugger fan if your ceiling-to-floor drop is less than 7 feet. In addition, you might need to purchase additional equipment if you later find that your ceiling type is vaulted, but the ceiling fan with light that you bought online is only for flat horizontal ceilings. Properly research the fan type suitable for your space before purchasing them for a hassle-free transaction.
Another concern you may contemplate is its rating in response to the installation location. Many standard ceiling fans online are for indoor use only, so they're the most suitable cooling apparatuses for living rooms, dining areas, and bedrooms. However, there are ceiling fans with lights that are meant for outdoor use. These fans can be damp-rated, wet-rated, or tropic-rated ones.
Damp-rated ceiling fans are ideal for covered outdoor spaces such as porticos and porches. In contrast, wet-rated ones can be installed in areas with direct exposure to ice, snow, and rain like pergolas and verandas. These two kinds can also become excellent bathroom and dirty kitchen ceiling fans, as they can tolerate the humid atmosphere of those rooms. Finally, tropic-rated ceiling fans with light bring the rating to a higher level - they're designed to withstand harsh weather conditions and are advertised as ideal fans for coastal areas. With these in mind, properly distinguish the rating of the ceiling fan you'd like to install in your space. We have fans in our collection that are tropic-rated, damp-rated, and wet-rated, so feel free to browse through them and find the one that suits your tastes.
The ceiling fan blades may also affect the fan's performance. The width and length of each blade naturally influence the airflow movement in the room. The material and finish on the blades also impact the fan's lifespan and rotational speed up to a certain degree. In addition, the number of blades add an aesthetic appeal to the fan and may also boost its operational efficiency. Lastly, there is an attribute on ceiling fan labels called blade pitch. This term is the measurement of the tilt of the blade from the horizontal plane. Manufacturers aim to produce fans with only 12- to 15-degree angle tilt for optimal air circulation, so consider buying ceiling fans with light that have blade pitches within that range.
Another tip is meant for Go Green warriors. Suppose you're an environmentalist or simply want to save costs on utility bills. In that case, energy-saving fans are your top picks. For example, ceiling fans with Energy Star seals are known to be 20% more efficient than other typical ceiling fans. If the ceiling fan with an Energy Star seal has a light kit, manufacturers advertise that up to 60% of power can be saved. If you haven't found any ceiling fan with light that has an Energy Star seal but still want an energy-saving fan, choose among standard-size fans that need less than 60W for its operation.
As you choose to buy ceiling fans with lights, it's best not to neglect parameters related to the light kit itself. For example, the light kit's bulb type, wattage, and other features should also be considered before purchasing a ceiling fan with light. If you can choose, go for light kits with bulbs that you can readily source locally. After all, not all bulb types are available in all regions. So, if there is an option between an GU10 light kit and an E27 light kit, but your local hardware store only supplies E27 bulbs, it's a rational choice to choose the latter over the former.
Moreover, you can save electricity costs if you choose a low-wattage light kit or one with energy-saving features. There are also ceiling fan light kits with dimming and colour temperature changing attributes. Although you need to pay a bit more, the added comfort and adaptability it can bring to your home is immeasurable.
Last among our top considerations is the warranty. Many people take this for granted. As long as the salesperson says that your chosen ceiling fan with a light kit has a lifetime warranty, then there's a high chance that the product is basically sold. However, you probably don't know that there are many types of warranties, and the "lifetime" warranty that entices you to buy the ceiling fan might not be the warranty you think. There are lifetime warranties that cover repair for certain parts only. There are also lifetime warranties that only replace specific ceiling fan parts. Therefore, before buying that ceiling fan with light that caught your eye, discuss and clarify first what kind of warranty do the store offer for your desired ceiling fan.
Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
By now, you probably have a top choice on what ceiling fan with light to buy for your room or at least some pointer for your ideal ceiling fan with light. All that you need to do is add it to your cart or browse through our collection and see if there is a ceiling fan with light that suits your demands. Once you’ve placed an order, have it installed in its designated place after receiving it. Check all the documentation for installation and operation to make sure that your fan is working well. After that, what’s next?
To prolong the life of your ceiling fan with light, proper care is a must. Moreover, there will be moments when it needs some rough or basic fixing as time passes. Hence, it’s important to have some knowledge about ceiling fan maintenance and troubleshooting, and we’ve listed down some of them for your reference:
Ceiling fan cleaning should be done at least every two weeks. Simply wiping the blades, fan housing, and the light kit with a dry clean cloth can remove the accumulated dust and slightly improve its performance. You can also use degreasers, sprays, and all-purpose cleaners for parts with stubborn dirt marks. A handheld vacuum can also be helpful for hard-to-reach areas.
Deep cleaning can be done once or twice per quarter. This includes greasing the motors, removing the dust inside and outside the motor housing, and possibly replacing the light kit bulbs.
Wobbling is a common issue for ceiling fans with light. To fix this, tighten up all screws and bolts and check if the fan blades are warped. If the blades are damaged, causing the fan to be unbalanced, just carefully bend the affected areas back to their original position or simply buy replacement fan blades. If it still wobbles after this, use some small weights and clips from a balancing kit, available in most hardware stores.
Another common issue for troubleshooting is the humming or buzzing fan noise. The usual reason for this is that some loose parts of the fan are striking other parts, so just tighten them up. If your ceiling fan is new, the buzzing noise is caused by the uneven distribution of the lubricant on the motor, so just let your fan normally run for a day, and the noise will disappear. If those don’t work, call the store or manufacturer for help.
Sometimes, the light kit on the fans is the problem. For this, check if all the wires are connected to their proper positions. Also, make sure that the naked wires aren’t touching each other unless it’s a necessary connection.
