How many ceiling fans are in your house?? How often do you clean them?? I have two in the living room. One in the dining room. and one in each of the bedrooms. So I have six ceiling fans all together. They collect dust very easily and I admit I don't clean them as much as I should. I try to clean them at least once a month.

We have 4 ceiling fans and you are right - the dust is attracted to them like a magnet! I will have to climb up there and clean them tonight now that I think about it. I never really look up there, yuck - they really need a cleaning. Also, did you know that if you keep your ceiling fans on in the winter that it helps to push the warmer air down into your rooms? All you have to do is reverse the direction of the blades. [i][b] Have a great day and happy myLotting!!![/b][/i]

hmm i'm not sure. I think ceiling fans would be better cause they can direct the flow of air better. But thats just my opinion. good luck. thank you for responding.

We don't have any ceiling fans in our house. We have a couple of fans to stand on the tables when it gets really hot.

We have one ceiling fan in our kitchen and one in our family room. I wish we had more, I would love to have one with an over head light in our bedroom. We have to depend on a lamp in that room, and we have big box fan sitting on our night stand, not too attractive. I would really love to have a ceiling fan in there. I also think my oldest son's bedroom could use one too, his room gets really hot in the summer time, and even when the air conditioning is on his room always feels pretty warm. Our kitchen ceiling fan gets really dirty. We actually have to take all the paddles down and wash them individually, it gets grease on it and stuff from cooking and then the dust lands on the grease it is pretty gross. The one in the family room gets dusty but not that quickly.

i have eight in my house and for some reason the smallest room in my house has two ceiling fans heck if i know why. I also need to dust mine more often. I do love having fans but they are a bit of a chore to dust as i am short.

We have two, one in the living room, and one in the master bedroom. I probably should clean them more than I do. They just sort of get forgotten.
