Ceiling fans can complement any decor, increase your comfort by warming or cooling the room, and help you save money on your energy bill. We see a lot of new houses in Baltimore city with ceiling fans pre installed. In almost all of these Baltimore homes, the fan is installed in the center of the room, replacing a central light fixture in the ceiling. This spot provides a smooth air flow throughout most of the room, and since a fan draws about the same amount of power as a ceiling light fixture, the electrical circuit shouldn't be overloaded.
