Save Money With Ceiling Fans
Are you looking for ways to lower your monthly utility bills? Installing a ceiling fan can help. These fixtures can circulate the air to help move cool and warm air throughout your house. In the summer months, set it to circulate counter-clockwise to create a downward airflow. This breeze will cool the skin and make the room feel 6 to 8 degrees cooler. In the winter, set the fan to circulate in a clockwise direction at a low speed to push the warmer air down into the room. This will make your home feel more comfortable and will lower your heating bill by 10 to 15 percent.
Why You Need an Electrician to Install a Ceiling Fan
When you purchase a new ceiling fan you might be tempted to install the fixture yourself. Before you attempt the DIY project, you should call an electrician to ensure it is installed safely and correctly.
If you are replacing an older fan and already have the existing wiring, the electrician will make sure the junction box is rated to support the new unit. When you call Edison Electric, Inc., our experts arrive at your home equipped with all the materials and tools to install a new fan rated ceiling box if your box needs to be replaced.
If you don’t already have wiring in your ceiling, installing the unit can be a more involved process. Our electricians are experienced with handling these situations - we see this a lot in older homes! - and they come fully equipped to install wiring to a new switch and ceiling fan location. Always protect your investment by having a licensed electrician from Edison Electric, Inc. inspect your ceiling boxes and install your ceiling fans.

What to Know When Replacing Your Chandelier
Are you looking to replace your existing chandelier? There are certain things you should consider when selecting a new model, including:
- Style: Decide what style of light you want. There are many options in contemporary, traditional, and other styles at most stores. Determine if you want the fixture to be a focal point of a room or if you want it to blend in.
- Location: Determine where you are putting the chandelier. This will help you decide on how large the fixture should be, and how much light it should give off.
- Type of lighting: Decide if you want to install a dimmer switch with your fixture to provide more flexibility with the type of lighting you want in the room.
- Call a professional: When you are ready to replace your chandelier call an electrician to perform the work to ensure it’s installed correctly and safely.
