7 Things You Never Knew About Ceiling Fans

Modern ceiling fan in the bedroom.


You already know that ceiling fans are a must for keeping your home comfortable. But they have a few secrets too. When you know their secrets, you can make the most of your ceiling fans. From increasing your heating and cooling efficiency to getting maximum air circulation, here are seven things you may not know about your ceiling fans.


#1 Ceiling Fans Can Increase Heating/Cooling Efficiency

Ceiling fans do more than provide a little airflow on a hot day. Did you know that you can change the direction your fan turns? When it turns clockwise, it pushes air down. When it turns counterclockwise, it draws air up. Why is this important? Hot air rises so depending on which season it is, you’ll want the hot air to be directed differently.

Setting your ceiling fan for summer vs winter is a matter of logic. When that hot air rises in the summer, you’ll want to push it down to blend it with cooler air and maintain a more consistently cool temperature. In the winter, you don’t want all that hot air at the ceiling; you want it down by your cold toes. Set your ceiling fan direction for summer vs winter like this: 

Summer = Counterclockwise

Winter = Clockwise


#2 Ceiling Fans Can Be Virtually Silent

Have you ever laid awake at night and instead of counting sheep you listen to the hum of the fan above your bed? Did you know there are whisper quiet ceiling fans? They can be practically undetectable (although the airflow is a dead giveaway). 

Quiet ceiling fans are all about technology. Look for a fan with an oil bath motor. These are pretty heavy and require an oil check every 1-5 years. However, they are top notch ceiling fans. Another option is a flywheel motor. It is an AC motor with flywheel discs that absorb shock and that means a quieter ceiling fan. On the flip side, a DC motor has a higher torque and better control. They are lightweight and very quiet.


Ceiling fans with eight blades.

#3 The Number of Fan Blades Is Not Just About Style

Did you know that the number of blades your ceiling fan has is mostly about performance? Ceiling fans generally come in 3, 4, or 5 blades, though occasionally you’ll see fans with more or less. If you want a gentle breeze, look for more blades. If you want more of a wind chill effect, look for fewer blades. 

The fewer the blades, the less drag there is. The less drag, the faster the blades can spin creating more airflow. Ceiling fans with 2 or 3 blades really move the air around and make their presence known. Fans with 4 or 5 (or more) blades have a gentler airflow. They also tend to be quieter.


 #4 The Pitch of the Blades Has a Huge Impact on Performance

The fan blades determine how much air gets circulated through the room. Did you know that the angle (or pitch) that the blades sit at and the shape of the blades can change airflow dramatically? Fan blades between 12-15 degrees will move the most air. Anything less than that won’t be enough and more than that will be too much. 

Balance is the bottom line when it comes to ceiling fans. If the angles of each blade don’t match, the fan will wobble, which can cause inefficiency and even damage. Fan blades also have to weigh exactly the same or you’ll get a wobble. Ceiling fans must be precise. If they’re not, they’ll be noisy and completely dysfunctional.

#5 Shape & Size of the Blade Can Impact Your Electric Bill

Did you know that the shape and size of the blades significantly change how much air circulates and therefore can influence how much electricity it takes to create airflow in your room? Blades that are extra long or wide, ironically, move less air than a moderately sized blade if the motor doesn't have the right level of power. Same goes for narrower and shorter blades. The motor needs to match the size of the blade. 

Most fan blades are a sort of rectangular shape with tapered or rounded ends. You’ll also see some alternative shapes that tout higher energy efficiency and better air circulation. These often look like plane propeller blades. Do they work better? Maybe. But for the purposes of your home, standard blades get the job done just as well.


#6 Different Ceiling Heights Require Different Installation

Depending on the height of your ceiling, you may have to install your ceiling fan differently. Did you know that airflow is impacted by the distance between the fan and the floor/ceiling? There are two rules of thumb when it comes to how to hang your ceiling fan. A fan that is 10-12 inches from the ceiling does the best job with air circulation. However, if the ceilings aren’t standard height, everything changes. 

The better rule to go by states that a ceiling fan should be 8-9 feet from the floor. If you have vaulted ceilings or extra tall ceilings, your fan will work best when hung from a downrod. If you have lower ceilings, you may need to consider a fan designed to be closer to the ceiling, called a flush mount, low profile, or hugger fan.

#7 A Bigger Room Doesn’t Always Need a Bigger Fan

You might think that a bigger room needs a bigger fan and that’s usually true. Did you know that the shape of the room is the determining factor for the size of the fan? In general, you can only feel the airflow of a ceiling fan if you stand no more than two feet outside its radius. Mathematically, a ceiling fan works best in a square room. If you have a square room you can scale the fan up in size the larger the room gets. 

8 x 8 foot room needs a 30 inch diameter fan or smaller

9 x 9 foot room needs a 41 to 50 inch diameter fan

12 x 12 foot room needs a 51 to 60 inch diameter fan

16 x 16 or larger foot room needs a 61 to 70 inch diameter fan

If your room is rectangular, a bigger fan’s effectiveness will be limited. In long rooms, it’s often better to use multiple fans spread equally across the room. Split the room’s measurements into two equal squares then buy the right diameter fan for each of the squares.


Whether you wonder about the ceiling fan direction in the winter vs the summer or you’re not sure about which ceiling fans move the most air, we hope these ceiling fan facts help make your decisions easier.

Summer Wedding Gift Guide For the DIY Couple

Summer wedding gift guide.

Forget china and kitchen appliances. This is a wedding gift guide like no other. Sure, kitchen appliances are important for setting up house together, but have you ever considered a gift of a different kind? A gift for home renovation? A gift for the DIY couple?

If the couple you’re shopping for have some updating to do on their home, this is the perfect wedding gift guide for you. Here are some ideas for gifts that the happy couple can appreciate. 


A towel warmer hung on the bathroom wall.


Bathroom Gifts

We spend a lot of time in the bathroom. We’re in there multiple times every day. We start and end our day there. Gifts for the bathroom help the couple create an environment they can enjoy for years to come.

Mirrors

Whether the couple is used to sharing their space or not, who wouldn’t welcome a little more mirror real estate? 

A mirror medicine cabinet that features lighting both inside and out, USB outlet, defogger, and a digital clock is a sure winner. Try a more streamlined frameless mirror that has Bluetooth audio. Or go for something smaller and simpler with a modern flair, especially good for smaller bathrooms.

Shelves & Linen Cabinets

Adding some storage to the bathroom boosts organization and makes way for two people to share the space. Freestanding linen cabinets offer a good amount of storage space. Doors can be closed for an instantly tidy appearance. Wall mounted cabinets have the same functionality on a smaller scale.

Freestanding or wall mounted shelves add storage and offer a bit of sleek modern style to the room. Shelves can go anywhere from the corner of the shower to the side of the vanity for easy access. 

Bath Accessories

Bathroom accessories may already be on the couple’s registry, but there may be a few items they didn’t think to add. For instance, towel bars and rings, shower caddies, and soap dispensers. A wonderful gift that we guarantee no one else thought of is a towel warmer. It’s a luxury the couple will enjoy all winter long.

Lighting Gifts

It’s something a new home can always use more of. Lighting can help the happy couple turn the house into a home. Smallish lighting (think lamps, pendants, and sconces) makes a great gift because it’s flexible and mobile. That kind of flexibility allows them to take the light to where they need it most. 

Wall Mounted Lights

Consider wall mounted sconces or swing arm lighting. They are great for adding accessible lighting in the living room or bedroom. They are easy to install and add a touch of atmosphere, killing two birds with one stone. 

Lamps

Traditional freestanding table or floor lamps, especially in sets, make some of the best housewarming gifts. Go with neutral colors and designs that fit with most styles. Unless, of course, you know the couple’s tastes. Then you can select something that fits their aesthetic. 


Utensil drawer organizer in the kitchen drawer.


Kitchen Gifts

Traditional gifts for the kitchen like crockpots and knives are all well and good, but this wedding gift guide thinks outside the norm for gifts that spruce up the kitchen itself.

Cabinet Knobs & Pulls

 Little details can go a long way to changing the look and feel of an outdated kitchen. If the happy couple has a less-than-ideal kitchen, new knobs may be just the ticket. They come in all sorts of styles and can transform a boring cabinet into a statement piece. 

Same goes for cabinet pulls. Though a different style entirely, pulls can dress up a kitchen with one simple and easy-to-do project.

Accessories

The happy couple is going to need some kitchen accessories to get all their kitchen utensils organized. Head over to our sister brand, RTA Cabinet Store and check out the drawer organizers, pull-out cabinet drawers, and more.

Dress up the kitchen look and experience with items like trash cans, cutting boards, and garbage disposals. Even something as utilitarian as sink drains and strainers are a necessity that no one will think to gift the couple. 


Wedding season is in full swing. Give a gift that the DIY couple can use to update their home together. For more gift guides, check out what we recommend for dads.

Three Rules of Outdoor Lighting for The Deck & Beyond

You have probably heard about the rules for successful indoor lighting: using a mix of ambient, task, and accent lighting. But do you know about the rules of outdoor lighting for a deck and beyond? Lighting in the great outdoors has three similar categories: basic, safety/security, and atmosphere. As you think about what needs illuminating in your outdoor environment, keep these categories in mind and you’ll end up with a well-lit space. 

From outdoor lighting for a deck to landscape lighting, here are some ideas to get you started.


Lighted garden pathway with bollard lights.


Rule #1 Start with Basic Outdoor Lighting

Start with the spaces that need basic lighting like your dining area or outdoor kitchen. These areas need ambient lighting that sheds lots of light around a large space. 

Flood Lights

Flood lights are champs at illuminating large areas with a high level of brightness and a large range of coverage. They are generally attached to the house and can easily be turned on and off with a switch. 

Spotlights

Spotlights are the smaller but equally as powerful sister of flood lights. They shed light over large to medium spaces and can be used for lighting up areas where you need plenty of light but might not be right next to the house. 

Spotlights can also be used to highlight areas of the landscape you want to draw attention to like a formidable tree or yard sculpture. 

Outdoor Chandeliers & Lamps

Bring all the comforts of the indoors outside with large-scale lighting over the dining area. Exterior-grade chandeliers or pendant lights over the picnic table takes the whole space up a notch. 

Outdoor lamps have the same effect. Built to withstand the elements, these lamps shed some light on a smaller scale and create a cozy atmosphere while increasing the total illumination.


Step lighting on a deck provides a safer environment in the dark.


Rule #2 Don’t Forget Outdoor Lighting for Safety & Security

Next consider areas that might pose a risk in the dark, like steps, edges, or corners. These need some lighting to keep you and your guests safe as you move around your outdoor space. This kind of lighting is direct light exactly where you need it. It won’t disturb the neighbors (like flood lights might) and can be left on all the time. 

In fact, it’s a good idea to keep some of this type of lighting on every night for security purposes. The more lighting you have in your outdoor space, the more you’ll deter intruders and critters. 

Up/Downlights

In simple terms, up lights are medium-sized lights that direct light upward. Downlights point the light down. Both are used to increase more direct light where it’s needed most. They are used to great effect against a house or fence where they boost overall security. Get creative with your up and downlights to make mood lighting as well. 

Use spotlights or in-floor/in-ground recessed lighting to point light up. Employ landscape lights with hoods or side-mount deck lights to point light down.

Step Lights & More

The most important outdoor lighting for a deck is lighting steps and other areas that may pose a risk in the dark. There are lots of ways to decrease that risk. Deck lighting can be mounted to the sides of railing or posts. Add post cap lights on top of your deck posts or fence posts. 

Light up steps and stairs with lights on the stair risers. These come with louvers so you can direct light downward and keep it out of the eyes. 


A pergola lit with string lights.


Rule #3 You’re Not Done Until You Have Atmosphere Lighting

Atmosphere or mood lighting not only adds light to your overall scheme, but it does it with flair. This is the lighting that adds style and personality to your outdoor space. Whether you add light to the landscape, light a tiki torch, or string up a few Edison bulbs, you create that festive feeling that will make you want to stay in the backyard all summer long.

Bollard & Landscape Lights

Bollard lights are short posts with lights on top. They don’t have a shield or cover and shine light in all directions. They are great for lighting up a path or edging a flower bed. They add plenty of panache and serve to make your area more navigable.

Landscape lights are a broad category. They include anything you can use to enhance your landscape from spotlights to deck lights. It may not be necessary to light up your landscape (nobody’s going to be tiptoeing through your tulips), but they add considerable style and depth to your outdoor space. Those flower beds should add to the ambiance both day and night.

String & Rope Lights

String lights feature bare bulbs on an electrical wire. They are the superhero of outdoor lighting for a deck. You can hang them in any arrangement for either atmosphere or functional light. They are easy to get and are one of the most affordable ways to add some mood. 

The larger Edison bulb types are pricier but offer more light. You can keep it simple and pick up a few extra strands of holiday lights to get the same effect. Consider using colored lights too.

Tape lights are the high-tech sister of string lights. They are LED lights embedded in a flat plastic “tape”. They are easy to conceal and even easier to install. The best part about tape lights is the control you have over them. Get smart tape lights with wifi that you can control from an app on your phone. You can change the color, dim the lights, cycle through different lights, turn them on and off . . . the list goes on.

Decorative Lighting

Add some decorative lighting at eye level to spruce up your outdoor space. Lanterns or candles on the table, tiki torches around the patio, lighted orbs, delicate patterned tin lanterns or even paper lanterns all add mood. 

Did you ever consider that a firepit is technically lighting? Let it figure into your plan too. Small gas firepits come in many shapes, sizes, and styles. There’s one for every outdoor design. 



With so many outdoor lighting ideas for a deck, it’s only a matter of making a plan and getting started. Turn your backyard into a haven you won’t want to leave, especially after the sun goes down.

The Practical Father’s Day Gift Guide

A dad enjoying a luxurious bathtub.



 He’s always there when the car breaks down. He’s always got a dumb joke up his sleeve. He’s happy to spot you a $20 (or $50) whenever you need it. Dad is worth celebrating but if you are tired of getting him a tie or another golf shirt, then it’s time to think outside the box. If you’re looking for a gift he can really appreciate, one he can use, we have some ideas. 


Robe Hook

A stylish, well-placed robe hook is something Dad can use and appreciate every day. Bathroom robe hooks in brushed nickel are popular and go with most existing hardware and faucets in the bathroom. Select one with clean lines and substantial design for a style your dad will love.


Packing Cubes

They may be ultra practical, but for the traveling Dad, packing cubes allow him to pack more efficiently, and you know how he is about efficiency. These little packages let him pack clothes or other soft items then shrink them down using vacuum air removal or a series of zippers. The result is a compressed cube that frees up space in his suitcase.


A fog-free, lit mirror in a white bathroom.


Fog Free Bathroom Wall Mirrors

If your dad loves a steamy shower or bath, a fog-free mirror may be just what he needs. These aren’t your regular bathroom mirrors. They are heated so moisture won’t condense on them when the bathroom gets steamed-up. You can also find them with built-in LED lighting. Available in all sizes for any bathroom.


Beard Balm

Beards are in, so if you have a hip dad, a beard balm could be just the thing he needs. Beard balms are essentially leave-in conditioners that moisturize, soften, and style a beard. Some types can promote growth. Help your dad keep his beard healthy and looking fabulous.


A heated towel rack in a large bathroom.


Heated Towel Rack - Wall Mounted

A towel warmer is the pinnacle of luxury in the bathroom. Give some of that luxury to Dad with a heated towel rack. Wall mounted versions are pretty much plug and play. You can select either electrically heated or water heated, but electric options heat faster and more efficiently.


Multi-Tool

We’re not talking about your usual Swiss Army Knife here. Look for a multi-tool that has several knives (straight edge and serrated), pliers, wire cutters, metal/wood files, and screwdrivers. They also come in different finishes like wood or carbon fiber.


A shower spa in a large glass shower.


Shower Spa

It’s a jetted tub, steam room, and rain shower all in one. The shower spa gives Dad all the perks of a spa right in his own bathroom. These aren’t just shower heads, but panels with body jets, pivoting shower arm, adjustable massaging sprays, temperature controls, and more. It’s perfect for a little relaxing hydrotherapy. 


BBQ Grill Tool Set

Every grill master needs a good set of tools. The long handled spatulas, tongs, and specialty tools let your dad do his thing whether he’s grilling burgers or smoking salmon.


Luxury Bathtub

A fancy bathtub is more than just a deep tub with some water jets. These high-tech tubs offer luxuries like air jets, heating zones, acupressure massage, consistent water temperature throughout a bath, electronic controls, even chromatherapy (calming colored lighting).


Car Care Kit

If your dad is a car lover, he’ll enjoy a care kit that helps him clean, polish, and perfect his car. Find a set that includes cleaning products and implements for paint, wheels, bumpers, and interior.


High-Tech Washlet

The washlet offers the experience of a bidet without adding one to the bathroom. All you have to do is replace the toilet seat. These Japanese toilet seats not only wash and dry, but they can also heat the water, light the toilet bowl, and clean/deodorize the toilet. Electronic controls and remote controls allow Dad to get the treatment he wants or even program it for his specifications.


Head Lamp

A head lamp is the perfect gift for the dad who doesn’t stop for anything—even darkness. They come in several types, including hat mounted lights or headband types. Especially fun, is the ball cap light that has lights under the brim.


Game Lighting

Whether your dad likes to spend leisure time playing poker or pool, a little mood lighting makes a great practical gift for Father’s Day. Get billiard lighting or track lighting to go over the pool table. Or try a pendant or sleek chandelier to go over the poker table.


If All Else Fails . . .

If none of the above strike your fancy, you can go somewhat less practical and try an item of the month club. Dad might enjoy a beer, cigar, jerky, jam, sirloin, cheese, bacon, pizza, ice cream, cake, coffee, or even necktie of the month subscription.



Treat your dad to something practical this Father’s Day. Practical gifts keep giving month after month and year after year. They say “I love you, dad” every time he uses them. 


Find more practical gifts for every occasion.
