I have two Harbor Breeze ceiling fans installed in my home. We live in a warm climate and during the hot summer months we were finding our living room to get to the point where it was uncomfortable sitting in without putting the air conditioning on. This is expensive and so we decided to install a ceiling fan in order to lower the overall cost of keeping the room cool.
Researching Ceiling Fan Ranges
We did a fair amount of research into ceiling fans, and we finally decided that Harbor Breeze ceiling fan range was the best option due to the fact that they had such a wide variety of different fan models ranging from the more traditional ceiling fan model to some beautiful contemporary ceiling fan options. You name it, they have it.
Our home is not particularly contemporary in its set up and so we felt that the more traditional ceiling fan option was the best one. We also wanted either a ceiling fan with a light or one that could have a light kit installation. The reason for this was that there is relatively little room on the ceiling for both a fan and a light to be situated. As a result the best option was to have both the fan and the light fitting integrated into each other.
Again the Harbor Breeze ceiling fan range came to the rescue and in the end we opted for the traditional Harbor Breeze Bamboo ceiling fans with a light fitting. It cost us around $260 from Lowes.
The installation has been really successful and we hardly ever use the air conditioning as a result during the summer months. We have a veranda and as the first ceiling fan proved to be such a success we thought that installing a second fan on the veranda would be great.
Choosing a Second Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fan
Having had such a good experience with Harbor Breeze fans the first time around it was an obvious choice to go for Harbor Breeze the second time too. The second ceiling fan has now been in place for approximately 18 months and we love it.
Recently however, one of the blades became loose and upon inspection we felt that the best course of action was to get a replacement blade. We were a bit worried about being able to locate a source of replacement ceiling fan blades especially in the particular model that we already had installed. But the amazing thing about the internet is that if you are trying to track down awkward parts you can take an awful lot of the leg work out of your search simply by going online.
In the end we sourced the part from a supplier of Harbor Breeze ceiling fan replacement parts and in fact not only that but the part was despatched and sent to us without charge for post and packaging at a much better price than we expected.
Installation of our new part was a piece of cake and I am pleased to report that our lovely Harbor Breeze ceiling fan is back and working as good as new. Hurray!
