Lighting the outside of your home at night is about safety and aesthetics. A sufficiently lit pathway prevents guests from falling and can help deter intruders, but also creates a beautiful scene of illuminated shrubbery.
A few of the top-quality brands in our showrooms are Casablanca Fan Company, Minka-Aire, Monte Carlo Fan Company and Kichler. Which is the best match for your ceiling fan needs?

If you have a covered patio or gazebo off your home, installing a damp-rated outdoor ceiling fan can help keep the space more comfortable. The late spring and summer seasons in New England can be brutally hot. While staying in the shade can help, your guests may still be affected by the outside temperature. To combat any discomfort, an outdoor ceiling fan can prevent heat from staying stagnant.
It also lowers your energy costs to strategically place lighting fixtures around the yard, rather than several groups near each other. We recommend using energy-efficient LED bulbs, so you do not have to worry about the cost of keeping outside lights on all night long.
Arguably the most important factor in your buying decision, the size of the space has a direct impact on the selection of fans you have to choose from. Consider how blade span will affect the existing décor and your ceiling height to help determine the overall size.
Shopping for a ceiling fan at Connecticut Lighting Centers is an experience like no other. Our staff is extensively trained in the latest trends and technologies to help you pick the ceiling fan that fits your existing décor and other needs.

Typically, we see ceiling fans running counter-clockwise to circulate cooler air throughout a room. Did you know reversing the direction helps circulate warmth? When run clockwise, cold air is pulled up the walls and redistributed to ground level as warm air. If you want to lower heating costs in the late fall, winter and early spring, running your ceiling fans clockwise can be an energy-saver.
Lighting is an extremely important factor in home design that many people overlook. Kichler products not only complement your existing décor, but bring energy and unparalleled beauty to your living spaces. Explore their distinct collections to make every room in your home unique.

Spring is here! As we patiently wait for winter storms to hibernate for the next 8 months, there are many things to be done during the seasonal transition. For homeowners, that often involves cleaning, moving patio furniture outside and maintaining the yard.
Although they are often overlooked until warm weather emerges, now is the time to pay attention to ceiling fans. What are their year-round benefits?
Help cool or heat large spacesImproved energy efficiencyAdd another source of light to a roomCirculate air through an outdoor patio
We like to say that less is more with landscape lighting, especially during the summer, because homeowners want to keep the ambience of a warm summer night when daylight lingers until after 8pm.
