A ceiling fan is an electrically powered mechanical fan suspended from the ceiling of a room that uses paddle type blades that rotate to circulate the air. A “hugger ceiling fan” is considered to be a flush mount fan that fits tight to the ceiling. Another type of ceiling fan uses a down rod that allows the fan to hang down from the ceiling. Most fan manufactures require the ceiling fan blades to be at least 7′ off the floor for safety. Ceiling fans can have light kits attached to the bottom of the ceiling fan motor housing. With the light kit your ceiling fan now serves two purposes one for air circulation and the other for illumination.
There are many ways to control a ceiling fan depending on what your ceiling fan model is capable of. The simplest method is by pull chains mounted to the fan. There can be a wall switch that when off does not let the fan or light be turned on by use of the pull chains on the fan. Other ways that are popular for controlling your ceiling fan is by using a special wall switch that controls the speed and has Capability of turning on and dimming of the lights. The final method of control is by using a hand held remote control. The remote control communicates with the receiver in the unit. A combination or variation of all these control methods can also be found or created.
