The Benefits of Ceiling Fan Lights


One of the first improvements that ceiling fan inventor Philip Diehl made on his invention was the addition of an electric light. Back in 1882, when the ceiling fan was first created, this was a big deal. Many homes and businesses had just gotten electricity and it was still a very novel idea. Now, it is hard to imagine a ceiling fan without a light. There are three main ways that a ceiling fan light is attached to the fan. Branched lights, sometimes called stemmed lights, bowl lights, and up-lights are each unique ways that ceiling fans can provide illumination.

Since ceiling fans are usually installed over the room's light fixture, it is vital that the fan has a light. If the fan doesn't provide light, the people must buy lamps in order to illuminate the room. A pull-chain usually controls the light, allowing the user to use the fan on its own, or have both the fan and light on at once.

Stemmed or branched lights have several adjustable arms containing light bulbs that can be pointed wherever the user wants the light to shine. Bowl lights are very common, when the light bulb is housed within a removable glass bowl that is either attached directly to the fan or hangs below it. The bowl can be clear or somewhat opaque, depending on the amount of light that people want in the room. The third type of light is the up-light. This is when the light is actually pointed at the ceiling rather than the floor. Up-lights are situated above the fan and provide a much softer light than lights that are focused downwards.

A ceiling-fan light is a convenient addition to a fan. All types of ceiling-fan lights are good at illuminating rooms while saving space.
