The Cross House
In the 1894 Cross House I am planning to install ceiling fans. The idea is to install a chandelier in the center of most rooms, with a pair of ceiling fans to each side. The rooms are large enough to do this.
One concern is that the house would not have had ceiling fans when built. So, I would be introducing a non-historic element, and a highly discordant visual element. However, my desire for comfort is quite high, as well as my desire to reduce heating/cooling costs. These factors may override aesthetics.
I know essentially nothing about ceiling fans although while writing this post learned that ceiling fans were introduced in 1882.
In the end I may skip doing ceiling fans, and just place strong fans on the floor, pointed up to move air. These would be mostly invisible.
Do you have any thoughts or suggestions?
