How Ceiling Fans Work?
Ceiling fans work by using their blades to help the air circulate around the room, the varying shapes and sizes of the fan blades control how well a fan will circulate air.
How Are Ceiling Fans Installed?
Ceiling fans are generally connected to the houses power source and connected to a switch; this enables the user to control the speed easily.
Mounted to the roof, most fans can just be screwed in place, but more heavy duty ones may require a bracket system to hold the fan in place.
