I love summer and I also love to sleep. Based on my hundreds and hundreds of conversations with ceiling fan customers at Madison Lighting I know I’m not alone. As much as we love sleeping on summer nights there is something about it that makes our days not quite as refreshed as they could be. Customers tell me it goes something like this: A cool shower and you pop into bed. The sheets feel cool and crisp. You read for a few minutes and find that soon it’s a bit warm so you lose the covers. You drift off. You wake up and it’s super dark. It’s stuffy in your room, even though you have the AC running. The sheets are wilted. You try for the cool side of the pillow only to wake up again a bit later…

I fixed this issue a while back at my house with a ceiling fan. It’s an easy, reliable fix if you do it right: figure out the room size with a few measurements, take a few pictures of your furniture and your room, then head for the showroom at Madison Lighting and talk with someone that knows a lot about fans. Many people start with the way a fan looks. But you might start with the size fan you need for your space. That’s both the motor size and the blade size. And, while shopping, it becomes apparent which fans will cool you in summer and keep you comfy in winter, saving you a tidy bundle on electricity. Then pull up the pics on your phone or iPad and see which fan speaks to you, so to speak! We have lots of fans in our showroom and a lot more in our warehouse. And there are many more we can order for you if you want something super specific.

Pre-shopping is also a great idea. Visit us at www.MadisonLighting.com and click on the FANS tab. Take a look at the section on motors and another on measuring your space. It sounds pretty dry, but actually its kind of cool (pun intended!) to learn the way a fan works for you for pennies versus your air conditioner. Then come and see us and get the personal service we’re known for. Sometimes you might have to wait because we’re helping others. Or you can make an appointment. It’s worth buying the right ceiling fan from Madison Lighting. It will be quiet, reliable, energy efficient, and beautiful. It’ll have you sleeping comfortably in no time.
