How Do Ceiling Fans Work?
One of the most important aspects of using a ceiling fan is understanding how they work. You may not know this, but ceiling fans are designed to be used in hot and cold weather. A control mechanism allows you to change the direction of the fan’s rotation in order to either push air downward or pull it upward — depending on the season and your personal comfort. So, even during an occasional temperature dip in Tampa, you can rely on your ceiling fan to keep you comfortable!
During the summer, your ceiling fan’s blades should rotate clockwise in order to cool the room. When a ceiling fan’s blades rotate clockwise, air is pulled up toward the ceiling, creating a draft and having an evaporative effect on your skin (making the room seem cooler than it really is). During the winter, we recommend setting your ceiling fan to rotate clockwise. Doing so will circulate warm trapped near the ceiling downward into the rest of the room without creating too much of a breeze against your skin.
Ceiling Fan Installation & Repair
A simple ceiling fan can drastically improve comfort and air efficiency in even the best-insulated homes with the highest quality HVAC. This is because moving air in the summer can break the “heat envelope” of warmer air that forms around a person’s body, letting the much cooler room temperature air come into contact with your skin and carrying away heat by evaporating moisture. In the winter, a ceiling fan can ensure warmth isn’t wasted sitting by the ceiling, mixing up the air evenly and giving you the fullest benefit of your system.
So whether you have a fan that needs repairs to work its best or want to have one installed for efficiency, reaching out to the team at Hoffman Electrical & A/C could offer you considerable savings and comfort improvement.

Ceiling Fans Are Energy-Efficient
Ceiling fans not only help keep rooms more comfortable but are energy-efficient and can help reduce the cost of energy bills in your home or commercial building. Helping cool a room or area during the summer and keep it warm during the winter, the average ceiling fan runs on 75 watts (W) of electricity, while the average window-mounted air conditioner uses 1,000W, and the average central air conditioning unit using 3,000W.
Use your ceiling fan to complement your home or business’s current HVAC system and reduce your monthly utility costs. Give us a call to schedule your ceiling fan installation or repair today!

Does ceiling height matter for a ceiling fan?
For safety reasons, ceiling fans should be installed at least 7 feet above the floor. They should be about 8 or 9 feet from the ground for optimal airflow, so for high ceilings, a longer down rod is recommended to get the best airflow possible.
Are three- or four-blade ceiling fans better?
While the interference of each blade’s wake with the blade that follows it means things are more complicated than more blades — more air, fans with more blades tend to be quieter and move more air more consistently. If you prefer gusts to a breeze, three blades might be more your style.
Should you run ceiling fans all day?
You probably won’t harm your ceiling fan by running it all day if it’s a quality product, but running it when there’s no benefit to the air is a waste of energy. Of course, if air circulation to keep your thermostat from wasting energy is necessary for your home, you might want to run them even in empty rooms.
Can I install a ceiling fan myself?
Many little details go into installing a ceiling fan safely, so if you’re not already comfortable with DIY involving electricity, it’s not recommended. If you don’t know your way around electricity, you don’t want to deal with old, potentially dangerous wires, overloading a circuit breaker panel, etc., and risking shocks, damage to your electrical system, or fire.
