Hugger followers are developed to give the minimal distance between the ceiling and also the follower blades. This is optimal for lower ceilings as it offers the maximum clearance between the blades (and various other lower parts of the follower such as lights) and the flooring. The disadvantage is that the much shorter distance between the blades and the ceiling hampers blood circulation to a degree. Hugger ceiling fans are much less efficient compared to routine ceiling followers no matter ceiling height.
When you are attempting to choose out the finest follower, you will additionally locate that the electric motor type is crucial. There are 2 types of electric motors that are normally utilized in ceiling followers - rubbing chauffeur motors as well as straight drive electric motors. Generally a direct drive electric motor is the very best option, given that they last longer and also have fewer parts that are separated. They do often tend to be a bit more pricey, yet are well worth the additional money you'll pay.
Most ceiling fans made in current years have a developed in three-speed pullchain control. Regardless of whether or not the fan is wired to a different switch, you have full control of the follower from the chain. Most fans are also reversible and also have a reverse switch developed into the follower body.
My ceiling is reduced, do I require a 'hugger' fan? Ceiling fans with traditional pullchain controls can be retrofitted with remote rate control alternatives such as those pointed out above. The retrofit kits consist of the wall or wireless remote control, and also a receiver that is attached inside the ceiling follower cover as well as wires between the fan as well as the power source. The receiver requires just a two-wire source of power, switched or unswitched.
