Ceiling fans; functionality vs interior design feature?
A ceiling fan can be an interior design piece and/or a functional item in your interiors space.
Officially, a ceiling fan moves air around the room to give you a cooling experience. And they are not only relevant when it is hot. Most modern ceiling fans operate effectively in the winter months as well. A ceiling fan doesn’t actually lower or raise the room temperature (only a reverse cycle air conditioner can do that); however air circulation is key in hot and cool climates.
Ceiling fans are a great, cost effective, alternative to portable and ducted reverse cycle air conditioners. The cost to install and run over time is much lower. And if it is not essential that you have air conditioning, then a ceiling fan might just do the trick.
