Choosing a Ceiling Fan

When you come to Connecticut Lighting Centers, there are choices, choices and more choices! Where do you begin selecting a ceiling fan?

We have all different shapes and sizes for air movement and aesthetic appeal. We make the process easy for our customers, walking them through the different attributes of fans, including:

  • How much air it moves
  • Varying speeds
  • Light or no light
  • Reversible or not

These attributes are important to help you find the right ceiling fan for the right application.

Ceiling Fans on Display

At our showrooms, we’ve constructed an 8 foot ceiling with fans mounted to it, so you can get an idea of how a fan will look and feel in your home. We chose this height for its accuracy to the typical New England home specifications.

When many of us were born, smart home technology did not exist. Today, companies keep the safety of your family in mind when designing new products that make our lives more convenient.

Whenever someone gets in close proximity of your home or hits the doorbell, your phone receives a notification. The Nest video doorbell immediately begins recording and you can see live activity on your front step, from anywhere. Whether you’re inside or away from the house, you can open or keep the door closed.

Schlage Keyless Entry

The Schlage keyless entry system keeps your family safe inside the home with one-touch lock technology. Simply press the button on the lock or use your smartphone to activate the deadbolt. To open the door, key in a four-digit code on the keypad or use your smartphone – from anywhere.

Functional Kitchen Lighting

Within Connecticut Lighting Centers, we have built a kitchen to show customers the many different ways light can enhance the look of the room. One innovative way to light areas of your kitchen that you’ve never been able to properly illuminate is with LED ribbon lighting.

Although the tape looks small, it has great light output and no glare inside a glass cabinet, since you can’t see the source. Apply above, below and even inside cabinets to save space.

For recessed lighting, we have cans from two to five inches wide in a variety of styles. From LED and integrated LED to incandescent, there are so many options to create the aesthetic you want! Recessed cans have incredible light input and a clean look for the ceiling.

We also have a large selection of decorative options that does the functional side right, but also serves as a nice focal point in your kitchen. From mini pendants to large pendants and fixtures, you can choose whatever you style you want.
