Ceiling fans have been around a long time. The first fans appeared in commercial buildings and restaurants way back in the 1870s. Most people considered them an expensive, fancy way to circulate air and keep stuffy areas comfortable for visitors. Ceiling fans then appeared in residential homes, especially in the south and other humid areas. As technology increased, electricians tried to keep up with improvements for ceiling fans, but they realized that fans simply circulate air … hot air. Not long after, they invented air conditioning as a real alternative to circulating hot air.
Hot air rises, so since ceiling fans hang from ceilings, they move around the hottest air in your house. The breeze may seem like it helps at first, but the distortion of the natural airflow eventually gets old, especially when it sends things flying, like papers. Who wants to chase important documents down the hall every few minutes?
Ceiling fans can occasionally be a danger. Some are pretty powerful and cause serious injury. Children, often curious and adventurous, are particularly at risk of the rapidly moving blades. They may try to reach the fans to play dangerous games with it.
Ceiling fans do provide a nice, steady breeze, but they are not the best solution when you need to cool down. Real cool air that makes a vast difference on those hot and humid days can be found only with the installation of air conditioning.
