Residental Fans: Stay Cool & Catch A Breeze Inside Your Home
Summer months can be uncomfortably hot if you haven’t taken the steps necessary to keep your residence cool. If you do not have the luxury of central air conditioning when the days are hot you should look into getting a cooling fan to help keep you cool. This equipment can circulate air properly in your home, increasing comfort with evenly distributed temperatures and moisture levels throughout a room or your house.
Cool Your Room Without Central Air
A cooling fan can be used to create a cross-breeze in your home or to create a draft in still air. Should allergies or outside conditions prevent you from opening windows or doors, these units should also be helpful in circulating air that would become stale otherwise.
You should shop for a cooling fan based on the size of a room. The bigger the room, the more power your fan needs to have. There are several cooling fans that will help keep your space cool, including a floor fan, shelf fan and a misting fan.
Shop for a floor fan with multiple speeds to find an option that will help keep your entire room cool on even the hottest days. Table or shelf fans save space while creating a directed breeze with extra cooling. A misting fan is an option for cooling down outside. With a tank attached to the blower unit, this machine will spray a fine mist while generating a breeze.
Fans vs. Air Conditioners
Cooling fans and air conditioners play an important roll in keeping people cool as temperatures rise. There are many differences between a fan and an air conditioner. An AC unit will use Freon to cool the warm air around the unit then push the colder air out through the vents. This process requires a compressor, a condenser and an evaporator, all of which use energy and are sometimes very loud as they work. A fan will simply push air, circulating it and creating a breeze that can have a cooling effect. Air coolers and accessories are typically considerably less expensive than AC units, both in the initial cost and in overall energy use. While not as efficient at cooling the air in a room quickly as an AC unit, simply circulating the air is beneficial for many people.
Because of the cost efficiency, many individuals are choosing an appealing and stylish fan over a window AC unit, which can be unsightly. Look for models finished in bamboo or with unique shapes and designs to add style to your room while cooling it. Keep in mind that highly stylized units are often more expensive than the more simple options.
You might cool your home for comfort. Maybe you need a breeze in your residence for health reasons. What ever your purposes behind shopping for a fan, do not wait until it is too hot. Buy a fan now and be prepared and comfortable. Shop now for a fan that suits your needs and style and improve your comfort and the air in your home.
General Summary of Proposition 65
The “California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986” (more commonly referred to as ‘Proposition 65’)
was enacted to ensure that customers be properly warned when a product contains a substance known to cause cancer or
reproductive harm. The law requires the State of California to publish and maintain (annually) a list of substances
to be available to the general public. Additionally, the law requires that businesses properly notify residents of
the State of California about the presence of these substances in the products they purchase, or that may be present
in their homes, workplaces, or that otherwise may be released into the environment. The specific list contains a wide
range of naturally occurring and synthetic substances including manufacturing and construction chemicals, pesticides,
tobacco, food-additives, solvents, household products, drugs and byproducts created from a specific product usage.
You may have noticed the below warning label on our products, or on products from other manufacturers. The warning
has become increasingly commonplace and oftentimes raises questions about why the warning exists, and what it means
to a customer. The warning itself is just one of many requirements for businesses operating in and/or selling products
to customers in the the State of California. The warning does not mean that a product that includes the warning will
cause cancer or reproductive harm, but rather it simply is provided in order to educate the consumer that a substance
may exist. A large number of the substances listed under Proposition 65 have been in regular use for many years
without any documented harm to a consumer. This is due to the low concentrations and minimal exposure that actually
occurs with these substances. Those chemicals, however, have been determined by the State of California to be listed
as potentially harmful.
I don’t live in California. Why did my product include this warning?
In order to ensure compliance with Proposition 65 requirements we have determined that all products manufactured by
Living Direct Inc, including products sold under the EdgeStar, Avallon and Koldfront brands, should include the
above-referenced warning label. This labeling requirements exists for all of our products regardless of the
location / destination to which the product is ultimately sold and/or shipped.
We believe that our products, when used as designed, are not harmful and as such this warning is provided
in order to properly conform to the requirements of Proposition 65.
