Style your Home with Low Profile Hugger Fixtures
Hugger ceiling fans, also known as flush mount or low-profile ceiling fans, offer a cool solution because they are installed flush against the ceiling without the use of downrod, which allows the fan to hang at least seven feet above the floor as recommended by the NEC. Low profile hugger fixtures create a cooling effect in living areas during the summer and distribute heat in a residence during the winter. There are many high quality brands that manufacture close to the ceiling fans. Low profile hugger fixtures are ideal for bedrooms, offices, and attics as well as manufactured houses. However, they should not be installed on sloped or vaulted ceilings due to the blades’ proximity to the roof.
Benefits of Flush Mounting
Before the advent of proper heating systems and insulation, many homes were built with low profile or dropped ceilings that contained heat in a room and living area. Heating and insulation has improved significantly since then. Today, homeowners living in older homes face rising temperatures during the summer as heat becomes trapped in small living spaces. Residents may feel as if there no other choice but to endure the heat without major home renovations or the ability to install a standard ceiling fan as this requires that the blades hang at least seven feet above the floor.
Hugger ceiling fans include many of the same features as standard ceiling fans. Hugger ceiling fans lie flush against the ceiling, making them ideal for rooms with low ceilings.
