Fans play a major role in regulating the temperature of a room, offering a cooling effect and increasing ventilation. However with all the various options available these days, finding the right fan for your needs can sometimes be a daunting task.  This doesn’t have to be the case though, here you will find 3 fans that are most popular and the areas they are most suited for to help you make the right choice.

Wall, pedestal and ceiling fans are inexpensive, eco-friendly and they are available in various styles and colours. This makes them very popular among the masses and due to their structure and way of operation, they provide cooler air throughout a room.  

The Wall Fan - Wall fans have blades which circulate the air present in the room at a high speed to create a cooling effect. This can help a great deal in keeping you cool during steep summers and also put lesser pressure on your air conditioning systems.  Wall fans are perfect for churches, schools, factories, halls or any large room.

The Pedestal Fan – If you're looking to cool down smaller areas or personal spaces then the pedestal fan is the perfect choice.  These areas can feel stuffy and suffocating but by adding a pedestal fan you can transform it into an airy environment.  Although small in size, pedestals fans are highly effective.  Solent’s now offers pedestal fans with unique eco-friendly green blades, housed by either a black or white grill. These not only look stylish and trendy, they’re practical too!

The Ceiling Fan - Ceiling fans are perfect for any room indoors or outdoors.  They come in a variety of sizes, styles and finishes to compliment any style. Using ceiling fans throughout the home greatly reduces energy costs and it adds to a home’s character.  If you’re the kind that loves options, then Solent is the way to go.  Their fans are fully customizable, available with remote controls and you can add a light kit to it.  Solent ceiling fans are more than just functional; they can serve as a statement piece or focal point of a room.

Whether you're looking for a ceiling fan for your home, a wall fan for your warehouse or a pedestal fan for your office or study, you can be certain that you will find just the right fan for your needs at Solent.

    Ceiling fans, the unsung heroes of cooling!

    Looking for an effective to cool down this summer but can’t afford to spend a bucket load of cash?  Why not opt for a ceiling fan to provide you with an affordable and cost effective means of cooling down during the hot, sticky summer months.

    Ceiling fans are incredibly effective, as they circulate the air around the surface of your skin, creating a wind chill effect which makes you feel cooler by accelerating the evaporation of sweat on your skin.  A well-placed ceiling fan can seriously reduce the real feel temperature in a room.

    Ceiling fans are not responsible for reducing the temperature in a room, actually they can’t reduce the temperature of a room but they can reduce your body temperature, which is what makes them so incredibly energy efficient, unlike an air conditioner.  They are quick and easy to install and operate as effectively indoors as they do outdoors.  A bonus of having a ceiling fan apart from the cooling and cost saving factors is the fact that they are capable of keeping pesky bugs and mosquitoes away.

    Ceiling fans are available in a wide range of colours, styles and finishes and there is virtually one to suit any lifestyle or décor, from traditional to the very trendy.  They are now available with wooden or aluminium blades, depending on your budget or décor.  A well-chosen ceiling fan can be the perfect accessory to your décor and stand as a proud feature in its own right.

    Most modern ceiling fans no longer come with the traditional pull string but can be controlled by either a wall mounted control switch or a remote control for added convenience.  Ideally you should chose a fan that has more than 2 speed settings so that you can adjust the speed to suit your personal preference.  Ceiling fans have the option to change the direction of the blades so that you can run your fan during winter to help bring down the warmer air that sit closer to the ceiling.  All you have to do is inform your electrician to connect these wires to the flip switch when your fan is being installed. 

    If you have a room with a low ceiling, you can opt for a wall mounted fan, these offer just as much cooling and are great for smaller spaces.  Ceiling fans are available with various sized blades and number of blades, however the number of blades does not increase of decrease the amount of air being delivered by the fan, they are purely aesthetic.  Fans with larger blades are more suited for bigger rooms with high ceilings, whereas fans with smaller blades look great in smaller rooms or rooms with low ceilings.  However, if you have a very large room, you may want to consider installing 2 ceiling fans for maximum effect.
