Using a fine (00) steel-wool pad, vigorously rub the entire surface of the fixture, applying
adequate pressure to remove contamination residue. The use of warm soapy water will make this
process work faster but is not necessary. Once the surface of the fixture is free of
blemishes, the brightness can be restored by washing with a soft cloth and warm soapy water
followed by a buffing with a clean dry cloth if necessary.
Ceiling fans are designed to create the feeling of either a cooler room in the
summer or a warmer one in the winter, simply by circulating the air. While the room temperature
doesn’t change – the air movement of a fan provides a cooling effect in warmer months and
recirculates warm air downward in cool months.
Kichler ceiling fans are also designed with features to run more efficiently –
meaning lower operating costs on top of the cooler or warmer feeling in the room. Our fans that
feature DC motors operate up to 70% more efficiently than traditional AC motors, and our ENERGY
STAR® certified fans feature highly efficient fluorescent lighting.
DC motors are the new standard of efficiency in ceiling fans. In addition to using
up to 70% less energy, they operate 40% cooler than AC motors – meaning a prolonged motor life.
Their compact size also means less weight and easier installation. Plus they offer virtually silent
operation and are backed by Kichler’s lifetime motor warranty.
Imagine running one ceiling fan 24/7 at medium speed for one year. In that time, a
Kichler ceiling fan equipped with a DC motor could save you up to $80 a year in energy costs over
conventional fans, depending on energy costs in your area.
Traditional styles. Modern looks. Transitional focal points. With Kichler, you’ll
find them all. We offer the widest selection of ceiling fans featuring DC motors, so you never have
to sacrifice style for energy efficient performance.
Earning the ENERGY STAR rating means a product meets strict guidelines set by the
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The EPA requires that ENERGY STAR ceiling fan/light
combination units are 50% or more efficient than conventional fan/light units.
Buying the right size fan for your room size and ceiling height can make all the
difference in terms of maximum efficiency. For the best performance, go as large as your room can
accommodate: for maximum airflow, you want at least 18 inches of clearance between the edge of the
blade and your wall and a minimum of 7' clearance from the floor. Most Kichler ceiling fans
are sold with down rods designed for 8' or 9' ceilings, however, if your ceiling is higher, we
offer longer downrod accessories.
