The Benefits of Adding a Ceiling Fan to Your Home
A room can feel humid and stuffy when the air is still, so a good ceiling fan helps to keep you cool. During the summer – when it is actually humid outside – it can be difficult to escape the heat, particularly if you don’t have air conditioning. A good ceiling fan will give you some respite inside.
Poorly ventilated homes tend to retain their smells. If you cook a lot with oil, fish or spices, you may worry about the odors lingering in the house. Installing and using a fan while you are cooking will keep the air moving and get rid of those odors before they settle, allowing you to cook whatever you want without worrying how your house will smell.
Add Value to Your Home
Ceiling fans are often a very nice bonus for many prospective buyers. It is the kind of thing you don’t know you want until you see it.
And really, the benefit is incalculable. How much extra would you pay for a home where you’ll be comfortable all summer, every summer, compared to one without a fan? If you’re not sure how long you’ll be in your home, don’t let that put you off installing ceiling fans. It will pay off – quite literally – when you sell your Ocean Isle Beach home.
Utilize Your Space All Year Round
Another way they are great in the summer is making outdoor space more usable. Conservatories, decks and covered patios can be unusable when it is too hot or – worse – there are too many bugs around. This can make hosting or chilling out in a summer evening impossible.
Installing a ceiling fan will suddenly make these much more comfortable places to use in the summer. The speed of the airflow caused by a fan can deter bugs such as mosquitoes because they aren’t strong fliers.
