We’re Not Fans Of Memory Loss

Written by Alex under Ceiling Fans, General | No Comments ""

Twenty three years ago a young mother was injured by a ceiling fan which meant that she lost her entire memory. Once the injuries had healed she had to relearn how to walk, talk, read and write, she also had to redefine herself as a person. The accident happened when Su Meck, then twenty two […]



How to Choose Ceiling Fans for Conservatories: The Air and Water Centre Guide

Written by Alex under Ceiling Fans | No Comments ""

A conservatory can be a pleasant place to sit when you want to see a little bit of nature without leaving your home entirely. During the hottest parts of the year however, the glass surrounding conservatories can cause a ‘greenhouse effect’ and see the room become unbearably humid and too sticky to sit in. The […]

Written by Alex under Air Conditioners, Ceiling Fans, General | No Comments ""

If you’re buying AC for the first time or replacing an old unit with a new, upgraded energy efficient model there are a few things you should look out for. First of all you should look out for an air con unit which is specifically suited to the size of your home/office/workshop. If it’s not […]

Written by Duncan under Ceiling Fans, General | No Comments ""

Forecasting the weather beyond about a week ahead stretches even the most experienced weather forecaster. The Met Office and the European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasting (ECMWF) have huge amounts of computing power at their disposal and, as we all know, they can still get it completely wrong. Nowadays, a forecast for five days […]



Fan-tastic Additions to Your Home

Written by Duncan under Ceiling Fans, General | No Comments ""

How many people do you know with a ceiling fan? Let me take a guess. None? The ceiling fan seems to have fallen out of favour in British households of late. The rise of interior design with its fussy skirting boards and pastel shades seems to have helped at least in some way to bring […]

Written by Duncan under Ceiling Fans, General | No Comments ""

Britain seems to be gripped by a fashion-epidemic. A concept which was once confined to clothing has now filtered down into almost every aspect of our day-to-day lives. From cheese graters to egg-poachers, design is big business and people are prepared to pay a premium for a perfectly preened precision potato peeler these days! James […]



Fantastic Journey

Written by Duncan under Ceiling Fans, General | No Comments ""

Even we in the midst of this World Cup season wouldn’t try to shoehorn in England footie fans here.  Nor are we talking about  how oddly teamed animals make their way back home, or how Raquel Welch squeezes into a miniaturised  submarine (that would be a Fantastic Voyage!).  Neither do we consider a long and […]



Who Are The Best Fans?

Written by Duncan under Ceiling Fans, General | No Comments ""

The World Cup.  We promised not to touch it, but we just can’t avoid it, especially given the run of frankly baffling first round group stage results.  France apparently being morphed into a Pub Team.  Switzerland beating Spain – what’s that about? Ten-man Germany slipping to defeat after missing a World Cup penalty for the […]



Summer Is a Coming!

Written by Duncan under Ceiling Fans, General | No Comments ""

Even if you are not a fan of weather forecasters, they all seem to be in agreement about what this summer is going to be like.  It’ll be a scorcher!   Not just the Met Office, but a number of commercial forecasters (which have to be right more often so they get paid!) are suggesting that […]



Review of Venezia Ceiling Fan by Cristal Becker

Written by Duncan under Ceiling Fan Reviews | No Comments ""

We have recently installed one of your AWC Venezia ceiling fans in our bedroom and we are so pleased with the results that we thought we would take the time to thank you. The fan was a welcome relief in the summer, operating quietly at night and believe it or not we have even found […]
