Sacramento Ceiling Fans
Ceiling fans help circulate air and help make you feel more comfortable while giving you an economical way to reduce your heating or air conditioning bills.
In the winter, you can set your ceiling fan to run clockwise to help bring down the warm air that rises so that you feel warmer at a lower thermostat setting. Using fans has been found to lower heating costs by as much as 10 percent.
In the summer, set your ceiling fan to run counterclockwise to circulate the air so you actually feel (on average) up to 8 degrees cooler and reduce air conditioning bills by as much as 40 percent. A ceiling fan installation is a great way to help save money on your energy bills and add a decorative and energy-efficient feature to your Sacramento home.

Sacramento Ceiling Fan Installation and Replacement
AAA Electrical Services can install ceiling fans you already purchased, or we can help you select the best fan for a specific room. We recommend waiting to purchase your ceiling fan, so we can help you select the best and most efficient fan for your room.
There are lots of things to consider when shopping for a fan, such as the size of the fan, size of the blades, number of fan blades, proper height of the fan if you have tall ceilings, type of motor (powerful, efficient, quiet), and how much air a fan can move called FM (cubic feet per minute).
Plus, if you choose to buy ceiling fans through us, we pass on the discounts we get from our suppliers.
Ceiling Fan Installation Tips
Ceiling fans are not a one-size-fits-all proposition. Your AAA Electrical Services professional will need to take measurements to find one that fits the room where you want it installed. The span of the blades determines how much airflow it produces—the longer the span, the better the airflow. Contact your AAA Electrical Services electrician for a full sizing guide.
The blades should be about eight feet from your floor for optimal airflow. Here are a few other helpful tips:
If the room has a low ceiling, this is a simple and effective way to mount it. In this setup, the fan is flush with your ceiling.
Down Rod Mounts
In rooms with higher ceilings, down rod mounts may be necessary. A rod hangs from your ceiling, feeding the wiring to the fan. It also suspends the fan at the proper eight-foot length from the floor.
Pull Chain Switches
Simple to install and simple to control, the pull chain is a classic option. Pull the chain located on the fan to turn it on and off and to control the blade speed.
Wall switches allow you to control the fan like a light switch. They may contain several buttons including “on,” “off,” and “reverse,” as well as a button to adjust the light (if your fan has one).
Power on and adjust from anywhere in the room at your leisure with remote control for your ceiling fan.
Smart fans pair with your home automation system, allowing you to control your fan from anywhere in the world via your smartphone. Additionally, you can set energy-saving cycles, significantly reducing your energy expenses.
