Does Your Ceiling Fan Looks Cool While Keeping You Cool?

The Ceiling Fan : A tale as old as time, yet intrinsic to the Indian summers in a way few things are. It may look innocuous but it keeps you cool, both literally and metaphorically. It brings a smile to your face, even as you strive to block out the lingering heat of the summer sun, which creeps in through the windows.

Recently moved to a new home? Spent a lot of money while moving? The last residents have discarded their old fan and you do not like it? It can happen to anyone! But pause for a minute; don’t discard it or throw it away.
