Here at Del Mar Fans & Lighting, we understand how important sleep is and how hard it can be – especially in our modern age with all of the distractions and technological overstimulation. In order to get a healthy amount of rest and feel energized in the morning, a comfortable sleeping environment is key.

Having a ceiling fan or standing fan in the bedroom is a popular and efficient way to help relax your body and brain for a good night’s sleep. Today, we’ll be sharing some ways fans can help you get an awesome night’s sleep.

A vaulted ceiling makes a strong architectural statement in a home, but mounting a ceiling fan on an angled ceiling requires more than your standard fan installation tools. When buying a new ceiling fan, confirm the fan is compatible with sloped mounting. Many ceiling fans are designed to fit sloped ceilings with angles, also known as a pitch, up to 30 degrees. However, if your ceiling has a pitch greater than 30 degrees, you will need a sloped ceiling adapter for a proper and secure installation.

Pendants are light fixtures that hang from your ceiling to light a room. Pendant lights mount on cable, wire, stem, or chain, which separate them from close to ceiling lights. Pendants generally have one central light source. There are a wide variety of pendants available, from tiny mini pendants to multi light pendants.

Many homeowners rely solely on style and price when choosing a ceiling fan; however, the most important qualities that form a fan are not visible. Del Mar Fans & Lighting uses industry knowledge and first-hand experience to identify the most important elements for selecting the best ceiling fan. We rate ceiling fans based on motor, airflow, design and efficiency. The grade or performance of each element determines the overall rating in stars with five stars being the best ceiling fan available.

A chandelier adds ambiance, style and of course, general lighting to a room, but selecting the right chandelier can be tricky. A small chandelier can easily get lost in a large space and fail to deliver a strong design element, while a large chandelier can overwhelm a small space. The right chandelier is proportional to the height and width of the room. 

A high speed wobbly ceiling fan will strike fear in the heart of anyone standing under it or even near it. An unbalanced fan could also end up with damage to the motor’s bearing and bushings. This could lead to an irritating unnecessary fan noise. Below we will teach you how to balance a ceiling fan and put an end to your wobbly woes. Don’t forget, anytime you work on ceiling fans be sure to turn the fan's power off at the breaker.

Deciding on the perfect fan for your home, office, or business is no small task. Factors to consider range from the style of the fan, the size of the fan, to the location of the fan. Often overlooked are the lighting options that come with fans. In this article, we detail some common light kit options and bulb types to help you decide on the perfect lighting for your space.

Is your ceiling fan turning on and off on its own, even when you’re not in the room? Don’t call the Ghost Busters just yet. Most ceiling fan remote controls come with the factory set frequency. If two or more ceiling fans have the same frequency they can be controlled by either fan’s remote, which can have a range of 40 to 50 feet. Hence, the other remote is messing with your ceiling fan.

Outdoor lighting is an easy, cost-effective way to add beauty, safety, and security to your home. Understanding which outdoor lights work best with your home's exterior and landscape will help you choose the right light fixtures for your garden, deck and yard. Here are our top eight tips for choosing outdoor lighting fixtures for your home.
