My husband and I just bought our first home. It's multi-level and the dining room is on the main level. It has a chandelier in it but we're thinking that we'd save a lot of $$ by replacing it with a ceiling fan.
Through research, I've learned about "fandeleirs." The problem? They are insanely expensive and the fan part just doesn't seem like it would circulate much air.
We'd LIKE to create our own fandeleir (put in a big ceiling fan and hang a chandelier from it) but have NO CLUE if this would work--mainly because we don't know if the ceiling would hold the fan and the chandelier.
Does anybody know anything about this? We can't find any diy information but are really curious about this.
We look forward to your insight and advice.
