    Ceiling Fan Installation

    This year we’ve seen record-breaking heat throughout the Seattle Tacoma Area. One easy way to beat the heat and maintain a comfortable home year round is by installing a ceiling fan. Ceiling fans are easy to install and keep you from relying too much on your air conditioner or furnace. If you’re considering installing a new ceiling fan or replacing an old one, let our team at Lifetime Heating & Cooling help!

    Choosing the Right One

    Ceiling fans can be installed in place of an older one or light fixture. It’s important to make sure the ceiling fan you install is the right size for the room you decide to put it in. Having the right measurements helps us ensure that the room receives proper air flow from the fan.

    As a rule of them, the underside of the fan should be 7 feet or more above the floor. Fan blades ought to be a minimum of 30 inches away from walls, furniture, or other obstacles to avoid collision.

    Maintaining Your Ceiling Fan

    Once you have a ceiling fan installed proper maintenance is crucial to keeping it in tip-top shape for as long as possible!

    There are also things you can do to get the most out of your fan.

    • Keep Things Clean

     Dust that builds up over time can settle on your fan blades. This uneven distribution of weight can cause your fan to wobble, which inhibits optimum airflow and can be dangerous in the long-run. Dust that finds its way into the mechanisms of the motor can cause your fan to squeak. Luckily, cleaning your fan is simple. Lay down a drop cloth (an old newspaper will do) to catch any dust or debris. In a bucket, mix up some soapy water. Dip a clean cloth in the mixture, wring it out, and gently wipe each blade. Since with a clean cloth, and dry with a different clean cloth.

    • Changing Blade Direction 

    You may not know it, but the way your ceiling fans turn can change the way that air flows.  For hot summer months, blades should spin in a counterclockwise direction. This creates a downward flow of air that cools the room and you.

    In the fall, fan blades should spin the opposite direction (clockwise). This sucks colder air up and pushes warm air down, circulating the air so that heat is evenly distributed to the room.

    You can find the switch to change blade direction on your fan’s motor housing.

    • Routine Maintenance 

    Just like with your car, routine maintenance can help mitigate issues before they get out of hand. Every three months is a good rule of thumb. Take note of the mounting and whether it’s wobbling, and tighten all screws to fix any wobbling issues. Blades that are out of alignment can also cause wobbling. If this isn’t fixed, blades can become damaged or bent.

    Business responded quickly to my inquiry for service (thanks Renee!). Bobby arrived on time, explained everything he was doing, was quick, efficient and stuck to their quote, which was very reasonable BTW. I'm scheduling them for more services and wouldn't hesitate referring them to anyone.UPDATE! we had Lifetime return for dryer duct and vent cleaning, then for AC maintenance. Very happy both times and will continue to use their services. 5 thumbs up!👍👍👍👍👍

    What a great company filled with friendly, yet professional people who care about your job from the beginning to end. It starts with Renee who schedules the team to come out. The installers, Nick and Beau were excellent in checking in and communicating every step throughout the day. Electricians Tony and Alex had challenges with our system, but figured it out and voila! We have nice, cool, fresh air filling up our food bank!Then, here came David a few days later to service our furnace. Another excellent employee. We purchased the Premier Club Maintenance Plan and thrilled that we did!

    Nick, Beau & Tony did a great job installing our new AC & Furnace. Very professional, friendly & quick install. Nick had quite a job in such a tight space & did a terrific job. Beau even fixed a ducting problem after a previous contractor did a shoddy job. We so Appreciated their attention to detail. Great, professional, informative & fun team & we felt totally confident in their ability. We will definitely recommend them to friends who are looking for new AC. They even installed a much better & easier to use thermostat, set it up for our schedule. And the AC is so cool! Thanks Nick, Beau. & Tony.

    We called this company based off all the amazing google reviews and when we met with the company, we instantly knew we contacted the right people. They got us in for an estimate early, they scheduled us for our install the very next week (mind you it’s middle of summer when AC is WA is in high demand). The estimate was straight forward and they also looked into a few other heating questions we had regarding our home that was built a couple years that we think the builder didn’t install the best way.. I could go on and on. This seems like such a great company that truly cares about their people and their customers. We are excited to CHILL in our new AC that will be installed by this amazing company. 🙂 we have our install next week and I will submit another review after but let me tell you, from this point, we have had a great experience!! We worked with Robert who gave us our estimate and he is awesome!!
