How to Quiet Fans
Fans are a great way to keep your house cool and save energy. Ceiling fans offer an invaluable extra feature---the ability to switch to reverse. This is of great use when the fan is in a room with a fireplace. Switching to reverse allows the warmer air to be gently pushed downward, warming the room. On hot days when air conditioning is in use, switching the fan to forward helps draw the cool air upward, and to then circulate it about the room. Sometimes fans become noisy, and interfere with your ability to hear the television, radio or enjoy conversation. There are several ways to quiet a fan, each at little or no cost to you.
