Craftmade ceiling fans help save a home
Posted On July 24, 2021
Craftmade ceilings are an important part of the home decor of many hunters, who are more likely to have the type of outdoor living that can provide warmth and comfort in cold weather.
But for many, those ceilings are difficult to come by.
“They are not very common, so we are a little bit behind in getting them to come in, but they are really needed,” said Michael Withers, owner of Wither’s Hardware.
He said he was able to find his own ceiling fan because his local hardware store was out of the ceiling fans he wanted.
“I was able just to go out and get the stuff I needed,” he said.
Wither was able buy his ceiling fan through CraftMade, a local company that has made them for more than two decades.
CraftMade ceiling fans come in all sizes, with different models and prices depending on how much work they take to assemble.
Some are made from wood and other materials, but some are made with PVC, which is lighter and more easily repaired.
Craftmade makes all of its ceiling fans in-house and uses a variety of materials to make them.
Withering said the ceiling fan he bought for $150 was about the size of a quarter, and it was just as powerful as a typical ceiling fan.
“It is very quiet, it is very good at cooling things down, and when it gets hot, it will blow it away, it’s like a wind-powered fan,” he explained.
Witter, the store’s owner, said the company uses a proprietary heating and cooling system for their ceiling fans, which includes two air conditioners that run at different temperatures.
“We also use a hot water system, but we can’t heat the ceiling at the same time,” he told CBC News.
The company has sold its ceiling fan in the past, but has only made about 100 ceiling fans since 2015.
Wester said the biggest challenge is finding the right ceiling fan for a house that is large.
“The big thing we try to do is make sure that we get it right, that we can get it up there and then just keep it moving,” he added.
The ceiling fan that Wither purchased has been sitting in his living room for the last year.
“This is really important for me, because I can get up and walk to my car and not have to get up to get my phone and my TV,” he joked.
He has also found a friend in the company’s online store, where he was given a discount on a ceiling fan to help offset the costs of getting it in.
“If you go to their site, you can find that they have a very good selection of ceiling fans,” he noted.
He believes CraftMade will be able to keep up with demand in the future, but for now, he’s happy with his ceiling fans.
“In terms of the fans, they are definitely worth it,” he stressed.
“That was just the last thing I wanted to have on the ceiling, so I’m happy with it.”
