What is the type of current ceiling fans produce?
Ceiling fans do not produce current they use current. The type of current that a ceiling fan uses is alternating current.
they produce a large current of air that can affect the the way the air feels

Why a Ceiling Fan . A ceiling fan is a type of propeller and also a mixer. The fan is usually composed of flat blades which are attached to an electric motor. The motor, most commonly, has several speeds and can often be operated in a clockwise direction or counter clockwise direction. The fan b…lades are normally positoned at an angle to the verticle axis of the motor. The result of the angled blades turning is that air will be gathered by the leading edge of the blade and forced to the trailing edge and a breeze is felt coming off of the trailing edge. Within an enclosed environment such as a room in a home or business, the ceiling fan can be used to accelerate the distribution of warm or cooled air within the defined space, reducing energy bills and improving comfort. In the winter, when a warmer interior is required, it is generally considered the most effective operation of the ceiling fan is to "push" the air up toward the ceiling, the lower edge of the blades will be leading as the blades circle. The fan will compress the warmer air in the ceiling forcing it to desend down the walls and pull the cooler floor air up, thus mixing the air within the room and balancing temperature floor to ceiling, creating a more comfortable climate and reducing energy cost by moving the naturally convected warm air in the ceiling into the living space. The fan operating in the "up" mode also reduces drafts. Because the temperature within the room is the same due to mixing, the controling thermostat will be reading the actual room temperature, not just the stratified temperature at its mounted height. For cooling the opposite applies, the fan should turn with the upper leading edges leading as the blades rotate, causing the air to be blown down, this will pull the hotter air in the ceiling into the cold dense air on the floor and mix it, again balancing floor and ceiling temp, the fan is "pushing" the air down and causing drafts, moving air has a cooling effect on the body, by promoting evaporation. A ceiling fan operating by itself blowing air down will provide some relief on a hot day. A ceiling fan operaing in conjunction with an air condintioner will reduce the run time of the AC unit and allow higher temperatures to be set because moving air is "cooler" than still air.. (MORE)

Bigger Fan . Hi, I have two ceiling fans, and both are three speed. On mine I just pull the one chain three times to get up to top speed. If top speed isn't moving enough air, You have to get a bigger fan with a bigger motor. Look here:http://www.hansenwholesale.com/ceilingfans/default.asp Good L…uck, Leon (MORE)
Philip Diehl, the man who had engineered the electric motor used in the first Singer sewing machines, adapted that motor for use in a ceiling-mounted fan in 1882.
Answer . A "generator" usually produces DC current.. An "alternator" usually produces AC current.. Older cars up to the 1960's used generators. Newer cars use alternators (simpler design) with diode rectifiers to convert the AC to DC.. Batteries are DC. Some electronic circuitry (inverter…s) can change DC to AC. (MORE)

Direct current as would a magneto. For this reason it can be used with an integrated battery-condenser plant which would keep things going during slack periods.
Philip Diehl invented ceiling fans. Philip H. Diehl (January 29, 1847 - April 7, 1913) was aGerman-American mechanical engineer and inventor who held severalU.S. patents, including electric incandescent lamps, electricmotors for sewing machines and other uses, and ceiling fans.

You can lubricate a ceiling fan with WD-40. Just spray thelubricant on the fan where the motor spins. Make sure the fan isturned off first.
Ceiling fans are a good idea because they help to circulate air. Inthe summer they can be adjusted to circulate the room air down. Inthe winter they can be adjusted to circulate the room air up.
Automotive lead acid batteries of 12 volts have six cells internally wired in series, each cell generating 2V. The positive plate is made of lead grid with a lead oxide paste coating and the negative plate is porous lead. Dilute sulphuric acid is the electrolyte. The lead acid battery produced a d…irect current or DC during a chemical reaction that turns lead dioxide to lead sulphate and sulphuric acid to water. During recharging the process is reversed.

A ceiling fan is very effective on a 9 ft ceiling because it iscapable of circulating warm and cool air. It can help considerablewith heating and cooling costs.
Generally speaking, fan blade length corresponds to air dispersal. In other words, the bigger the blades, the more air is moved by the fan's operation. Larger rooms shold look at fans with larger blades, and smaller rooms should look at fans with smaller blades.
Batteries produce direct current (DC). One side of the battery (the cathode) generates electrons, negative, and they flow around the circuit to reach the other side of the battery (the anode). Alternating current (AC) comes from generators, and alternates as they rotate so the positive and negative… change back and forth. (MORE)
There should be a small slide switch on the fan. Turn it off and let it stop then move the slide switch then restart it and it should go in the other direction. If you are smart enough to ask a question on answers.com you should be smart enough to change the direction of a ceiling fan!
well im not quite sure, but i think you get a fan ceiling first, and then you have to make a hole in the ceiling to get the fan from hanging down. then you... i dont know call a ceiling expert :)
Answer for Canada, USA and countries running a 60 Hz supplyservice. On most ceiling fan installations a three wire feed is used. A"hot" wire and the neutral feeder are brought to a two gang switchbox from the distribution panel. One switch will control the fanand the other switch will control the l…ight if there is one. Onthis type of installation the "hot" wire is connected to the top ofboth switches. The incoming neutral and the white from the threewire cable connect together in the switch box. From the bottom ofthe switch that controls the fan connect the black wire. From thebottom of the switch that controls the light connect the red wire.From the switch box the three wire feeder connects to the fixturebox. In the fixture box the black wire of the three wire connectsto the fan's black wire. The red wire of the three wire connects tothe fan's blue wire to control the light. The neutral connects tothe fan's white wire. The green wire from the fan connects to thebare ground wire of the three wire cable. As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best adviceanyone should give you is to call a licensed electrician to advisewhat work is needed. Before you do any work yourself, on electrical circuits, equipment or appliances always use a test meter to ensure the circuit is, in fact,de-energized.

Generators produce alternating current (AC). The smaller ones generate single phase AC, but any larger one on the power grid will generate 3-phase AC. There are some DC (direct current) generators, but they have devices inside them (perhaps rectifiers of some sort) that change the AC into DC. Some p…olyphase generators can be found in , but most of the generators that "make power" for electrical applications are the 3-phase AC kind. It might be noted that the currents produced by a three-phase generator are 120 electrical degrees apart and have a sinusoidal waveform. And on the US power grid and some others, these generators generate 60 Hertz (60 cycles per second) AC, while in other parts of the world, 50 Hertz (Hz) can be found. (MORE)

A ceiling fan doesn't cool per se. It just moves around the air in the room and may create various air flow patterns in the room. Since hot air rises and cold air drops the fan may either draw warm air down or cold air up depending on the direction of the blade rotation. The best advice is to experi…ment with your particular situation and see what works best. There is no answer that covers all situations. (MORE)
Well, for smaller rooms such as bedrooms usually the 42 inch is better for those rooms, usually larger rooms such as great rooms, living rooms, master bedrooms, the best choice is the 52 inch.
It depends on the voltage standards of the country in which you live. In Europe the nominal voltage would be 230 V; in North America, it would be 120 V.
The angle of pitch of the fan blade in relationship to the air it is moving through forces the air to move along the blade angle surface depending on the rotational direction of the blade. To reverse the rotation of the blades there should be a reversing switch on the fan body. Remember in the winte…r time your ceiling fan should push the room air in an upwards motion and in the summertime the ceiling fan should push the room air in a downwards motion. (MORE)
Alternators usually produce AC current but in an automobile the current is fed through diodes which coverts it to DC power that the car can use.
You want to run a ceiling fan counter-clockwise during the summer. This will move air around the room, speeding up evaporation of sweat on your skin and thus decreasing the apparent temperature, making you feel cooler.
Overheating is a symptom of too much current. There may be a short in the winding of the fan motor across windings that effectively reduces the resistance, but the fan could still work.
in a ceiling fan the capacitor is used to give the starting torque to motor for run. because we need a rotating type of magnetic field to the motor to run. once the motor run it become running even we disconnect the capacitor. by using the capacitor we produce the electrica difference(phase angle) b…etween the two current taking by capacitor and the motor winding.

The first instance of ceiling fans occurred in the 1860's, by means of a water turbine. The electric ceiling fan was invented in 1882 by Phillip Diehl.
Can you install a ceiling fan with light replacing your current ceiling fan that does not have a light?
Answer for USA, Canada and countries running a 60 Hz supply service. Yes you can, but the light will only come on when the fan is operating. If there is a three wire going up to the fan from the light switch box then it was pre-wired so that a separate run for a light to be operated independent fr…om the fan. The cable will be a red, black and white wire. The black will connect to the fan, the red to the light in the fan and the white to both the neutrals of the fan and light which is up in the fan housing. If the switch box is only a single gang box there is a duplex switch that can be installed in the box. The cover for this duplex switch is the same cover as a duplex receptacle cover. (MORE)
Outdoor ceiling fans circulate the air when it is stale or when there is no breeze. This makes the air cooler and therefore cools you down. They are usually found on patios.
Most ceiling fans are around $150-$250 and are usually used to help still up a room in the house to increase it's overall value. Make you know how to install it and add additional costs for a pro if it's necessary.
You can buy ceiling fans at many local stores such as Lowes and Home Depot. They have specific departments inside which sell a variety of these fans for your home.
You can purchase a Tiffany style ceiling fan from any lamp store. They are a bit expensive so make sure you shop around to get the best deal. Also, they are available on Amazon.
The wire doesn't produce current at all. The current through itdepends completely on everything else in the world that's electricallyconnected to its ends.
motor used in fan is universal motor, which can work both on Ac or Dc . The working principle is similar to the ordinary motor
The possibilities in order of ease of repair: 1. Bulb burned out/ loose in socket 2. Bulb socket bad 3. Base switch (pull cords) broken 4. Loose or bad wire in switch or connection box (fan mount) 5. Loose or bad wire in wall switch 6. Bad wire between fan and wall switch A qualified electrician …should check for circuit continuity with power off. If the light never comes on, suspect the loose wires or bad wires. If all wires show connected (switch to fan), then switch inside fan may be broken. (MORE)
There aren't my ceiling fan has a lot of dust but no flies. Thanks for asking :)
The pre wire for a ceiling fan light should be made with a three wire cable. This cable will have a red, black, and white wire as main conductors. This cable will also have a bare ground wire. This wire should be strung between a two gang switch box to the fixture junction box. This pre wire allows …the supply to be either fed to the two gang box. From the two gang switch junction box, one side will be used for the light in the fixture and the other side of the switch junction box, it will be used for the fan portion in the fixture. (MORE)

You get someone to jump off a chair and see how long i takes them to die. You need them to jump high so they should be black
Look inside the light kit where the light pull chain turns the light on/off. You will find a black box and trace these wires to the pull chain and light if they are not clearly labeled.
The fan must be moving "slow" speed to "reverse" the flow using the remote. The fan will then stop, and then reverse. I know this sounds counter-intuitive (I thought I would break something) doing this. Also, if moving "slow" to "reverse", doesn't work for your fan; a Hunter Tech told me to try "med…ium" or "high".

Stealing things is best done with an internal combustion engine. A single-phase induction motor is used in ceiling fans.
Well, like most things in life, the answer is "it depends". The biggest determining factor is the size of the space being cooled and the conditions that you're using the fan in. There's a rough guide on the LightsOnline.com site that lists size of guidelines of ceiling fans and rooms: . About 50… square feet. 29" fan. About 75 square feet. 36" fan. About 100 square feet. 42" fan. About 225 square feet. 52" fan. About 400 square feet. 56" fan. More than 400 sq. ft.. 2 fans . Now, if the fan is for an outdoor area, be sure to get an outdoor fan. They tend to be made of more durable materials that can withstand moisture and elemental exposure. Hopefully, this helps! (MORE)
In theory I don't see why not however not a very effective one also multiple variables will control if it can/ or how effective it is. i.e. Is the room sealed Where the fan is in the room Furniture etc
It should run off the same wiring as a light fitting If you're not sure consult a qualified electrician
A device with a low resistive load will produce a high current in a series circuit.
If you can find the wattage of the fan and you know the voltage of the fan use the following equation. Amps = watts/volts.
The generation of current from the transfer of torque force toenergy from an original force of, say, a waterfall (or yourpedaling a bicycle) works as the effort made by the waterfall is agreater force than the resistance of the magnetos in the electricgenerator or whatever you're generating. Thus a …waterfall hasenough force to overcome the weight of a grounding wheel and soit's used to grind corn to meal. A ceiling fan, though doesn't haveenough inertial force, once the power is turned off, to overpowerthe resistance of a generator to "regenerate" significant currentsfor any length of time to make it worthwhile. In fact, most likely,the generator, depending on it's size, would simply act as abraking system for the fan to stop it from spinning once the poweris turned off. (MORE)
No. If that were the case, the ceiling fan would make the room feelwarmer. All fans make us feel cooler by moving the air. Our skinalmost always has a bit of moisture on it.
