A research report made news earlier this week, when it found that over 10% of people that recently purchase a vehicle did NOT take a test drive.
The Maritz Research study surveyed 80,219 buyers of 2012 model-year vehicles and discovered that 11.4 percent — more than one in 10 — didn’t take a test drive.
For most people, the only thing that you will spend more money on than your car is a home. It seems odd to us that over 10% of recent car buyers are willing to make such a large purchase and rely solely on their Internet research and chose NOT to take a brief test drive.
Are you the type of person that would buy a car without test-driving it? Are you the type of person that would buy a ceiling fan without feeling how well it performs? Most of our customers purchase a ceiling fan to keep their home cool. How will you know if a ceiling is strong if you don’t feel it before you buy it?

The primary function of ceiling fans is to move air so you feel more comfortable. All fans move air, how much air is circulated, how efficiently, how quietly, how much will your fan wobble, and how long the fan lasts are questions wise consumers should ask before selecting a ceiling fan. Higher quality is measured in more than just dollars and cents. At first glance, all fans may appear to look alike, but they are not! Here are some things to look for and compare before purchasing a ceiling fan:
When Cheap Ceiling Fans are Noisy Ceiling Fans
Inexpensive fans generally lack proper noise-reducing components such as isolation rings and rubber cushions between metal parts. These special noise silencers help stop the transference of noise through the fan to the ceiling, where noise can be magnified. Inexpensive fans usually do not have these components because they add extra costs to manufacturing. Noise is generated because the fan in general is poorly engineered and manufactured using the lease expensive methods.
Why Ceiling Fans Break Down Prematurely
For a fan to operate efficiently and effectively, the motor size must be engineered to match the blade pitch and blade length. Inexpensive fans may have inadequately sized motors, which can cause over-heating and motor burnout. In many instances, lower quality fans may not have enough blade pitch to effectively move air. The higher the blade pitch (angle of the blades), the more movement of air…but remember, the greater the pitch, the greater need for a larger motor.
Your bathroom is one of the best rooms to install a ceiling fan.
Although bathrooms are small, you can usually fit a 30-inch ceiling fan in most bathrooms.
A ceiling fan will give you an additional spot for lighting. This can help men while shaving and can help women while applying makeup.
Bathrooms can be a source of unpleasant odors, running your ceiling fan for a few minutes will dissipate odors quickly.
Do you get frustrated by foggy mirrors after you finish your shower? A ceiling fan in your bathroom is the fastest way to cool off the room and de-fog the mirror.
After you get out of the shower, running your ceiling fan for just a few minutes will dissipate steam and remove humidity from the room. Run the fan for a little longer and your towels will dry off faster.
