Get Ready to Beat the Summer Heat by Installing Ceiling Fans Now

Summertime heat in the Washington, DC area has been known to become unbearable overnight as spring moves into summer. Before the heat gets the best of you, the month of May is the perfect time to install ceiling fans throughout your home, which will keep everyone cool and comfortable once the temperatures start to rise. In addition to supporting the atmosphere in your home, installing ceiling fans can lessen your energy bills. So get ready to beat the summer heat by installing ceiling fans now.


Ceiling fans are available in a variety of designs, enabling you to choose the perfect one which will suit your home's layout or décor. Ceiling fans come with a wide range of options in addition to manual control, such as remote, or voice-activated operation; with the technological advances over the past few years, now you can actually integrate your ceiling fan with a device such as a Smart Hub or with an application on your smartphone, making it easier to control than ever before.

Save On Energy Costs with Ceiling Fans

Instead of actually cooling the air temperature, ceiling fans recirculate the air in the room. As this air moves against your skin, it lowers your body temperature. By taking advantage of this air recirculation, you can set thermostats to a higher temperature and maintain a comfortable home environment. This can result in dramatic decreases in your energy bill over a year, especially because  your air conditioning system doesn't have work as hard anymore.

Ceiling Fans Can Add Style to a Room

Ceiling fans are known for their functional features, but they can also be used as a part of the décor in any given room. There are hundreds of styles, colors, sizes, and designs from which to choose. It's up to you whether you want your ceiling fan to make a bold statement or let it do its job, and keep a low design profile. Combining ceiling fans with new or enhanced lighting options is a popular thing to do, and Wilcox Electricians are well trained and experienced with integrating smart lighting into any space. Ceiling fans are incredibly versatile and can be mounted in different areas, at varying heights, or even at angles in unique sloped ceiling designs. Whether you have high ceilings or low ceilings, there is a fan to fit your needs, and we can install it for you.

It's Best to Have Your Ceiling Fans Professionally Installed

Many ceiling fans come with instructions and DIY kits for installation, but bear in mind that this can often be a recipe for disaster. The new ceiling fan model wiring often does not match precisely with many older homes in the Washington, DC area. It's very likely that rewiring will be required for your ceiling fan installation to meet safety standards and current electrical codes. To avoid any issues, contact Wilcox Electric to install your ceiling fans. Our technicians can perform any necessary adjustments to your home's electrical wiring to ensure the ceiling fans are safely and effectively installed.

Before the oppressive heat of another Washington DC summer sets in, call Wilcox Electric for your ceiling fan installation and repair needs. Enjoy cooler temperatures and lower energy costs with a wide variety of ceiling fan options.
