Ceiling Fans: Tiffany Charmaine ceiling fan
Scott Gibson, Contributing Editor
According to the manufacturer, this ceiling fan is effective in both summer and winter. During the summer, running the fan counter-clockwise pushes air downward and makes the apparent air temperature 8 degrees cooler; in winter, an updraft circulates air trapped near the ceiling.
This model has an oil-rubbed bronze finish and five 56-in. blades, making it the right size for a large room, up to 22 ft. by 22 ft. It can be installed on a flat or angled ceiling, with or without lights. A remote control is included. The fan is not designed for use outside. In October 2004, the model 28424 was available for about $320.
