Ceiling fans are a surprisingly multipurpose, just like Upside Down!
They are efficient and can suit all seasons and all rooms. If you’re thinking about installing one, here are a few fantastic reasons why you should commit:
- Ceiling fans are more energy efficient and cheaper than air conditioning units
- Their summer/winter setting means you can use them all-year round
- A clockwise spin pushes warm air down for winter
- Anticlockwise pushes cool air down for summer
- Outdoor ceiling variants can add extra comfort to any outdoor dining area
- Ceiling fans with lights or a LED installation are brilliant multipurpose appliances
- Smart ceiling fans can even be controlled via a smartphone or Google Home
- Suits specific room needs
So, if you’re living in an old house with a ceiling fan that wobbles and wobbles, call Upside Down to steady the ship and install something new! We can supply you with our own stock, or you can provide your own. It can be a statement piece to get your friends talking, or a more subtle, low profile installation.
There’s nothing exhausting about exhaust fans, except for climbing on a rickety chair to pull off the cover, having to clean up dust, making eye contact with the possum living in the roof…

Technology has come a long way in such a short time and that means your humble ceiling fan has also arrived in the 21st century!
Using Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, you can now connect a ceiling fan to your Google Home or Amazon Alexa and control it with your voice or just a few taps on your phone!
We can either install a new smart installation or investigate whether a smart remote is all you need to add a whole new level of control to your home.
These smart alternatives are great when paired with your air conditioner to provide comfort all year-round, as well as keep the heating and cooling prices down!
Ceiling fans have to wired in, properly secured and balanced. It’s a job for a professional technician such as you will find at Upside Down.
The number of blades on your ceiling fan make a difference.
Fans with fewer blades have less drag, so move faster and can move more air efficiently. The fewer the blades, the faster the speed. If you’re after a strong breeze effect, choose 3 blade fans. For a gentle breeze or a mere zephyr, 4 blades is the go.
