Necessity. Westside Wholesale offers the wide range of ceiling fans for any room. With this appliance the room looks larger and lighter that it was before. This effect is created by the air circulation. Many people doubt is there is a need in a fan especially if they already have a conditioner. However, there is a great difference between them. The conditioner only cools the air, whereas a fan rotates the air throughout the room creating a constant airflow. Thus, the cold air pockets remove and the air has an even temperature in the whole room. During the hot weather fans produce chilling effect, and there is less probability to catch a cold with a fan rather than with a conditioner.
Features. A number of features can make the life easier and better. A remote control to control the appliance from the bed or from any other place in the room is among them. There should also be an opportunity to change the rotation direction from clockwise to the counter-clockwise. Useful additions are several speed settings. These features distinguish common fans from the qualitative and up to date models.
Efficiency. To understand which fan is good and which is not, remember that an ideal fan has airflow of at least 4000 cubic feet per minute. It is a scale that is rated by the Air Movement and Control Association. For those who do not want to increase the bills with one more appliance, there are low-profile ceiling fans that consume not more than 60 watts. For the customers concerned with the design and light there are fans with lights, but do not forget that the usage of energy is higher in this case.
Design. Tastes differ, but there is something that will look good in any case. Pay attention to the fans with metal details such as chrome, silver and bronze. Lights also add a special charm to the whole room atmosphere. Moreover, there are flush-mount ceiling fans that can be more expensive, but they are convenience elements that do not sacrifice the interior style.
Westside Wholesale chose the best fans on the market. Now you only need to find the one that suits your interior and taste.

How to Select
How to select a ceiling fan
A ceiling fan is the most convenient and cost-efficient way to ventilate a room or other area of the house during summer. This article will help you select the perfect ceiling fan to suit your needs. It will also tell you about the types and characteristics of such fans and what they mean.
The first thing to do before you order a fan is to decide where you want to install it. Since every location is different in providing access to all of the necessary wires and mounting accessories, you will have to pay closer attention to this step. Small rooms usually require a single device that is installed in the middle of the ceiling. Larger rooms and areas may require some additional devices in order to provide proper cooling for the entire area.
The ceiling’s height is other important factor to consider. The lower the height the more advanced installation you will need. For example, if the ceiling’s height is lower than 8 feet, you will need to install your fan without the down rod. Moreover, remember that each fan that you install should have direct access to the electricity line. Not only that, it should not overload the line and cause problems of any kind. If a room does not provide a circuit for the fan, you should consider running a new circuit from the home’s main panel. In addition to that, to ensure that your electricity line will be able to handle the fan you wish to purchase, pay attention to the specifications of such device. Be sure to order a fan that will not overload the electric circuit in your home.
The price should not be a decisive factor in your decision to purchase a particular fan; however, people often select cheaper devices to save money. Bear in mind that cheaper fan will not necessarily help you save money and may even become a reason of excessive spending in the future. So should aim for a fan that does not have the lowest price but offers efficient operation. Such devices are equipped with a more powerful and reliable motor and will ensure the room is properly cooled.
Here are some additional tips that will help you select a perfect ceiling fan for the area of your choice.
- If you live in a hot climate and need your fan to operate nonstop, make sure you select a device with the Energy Star label, since it will provide 20% more efficient operation.
- Remember that ceiling fans do not remove humidity, to get rid of it you will need to look for a dehumidifier or a fan with additional features.
- Do not install your fan precisely under a lighting fixture, since the blades will create unnecessary shadow in the entire room.
