Many people still use electric fans instead of, and in addition to, their central air conditioning.
Some, simply, because there are financial and location restrictions on installing the A/C unit and others because they love the look of the newer fans. Today, electric fans are more fashion statements than anything else. Historically, they served a function and much needed purpose. Now, however, many designers integrate fans into the décor to make the area more appealing and to give the space more depth. Regardless of your reason for purchasing an electric fan, there is, no doubt, plenty of selection and a variety of manufacturers from which to choose. As a result, I have compiled a list of the top seven manufacturers of electric fans. Continue reading …
Believe it or not, ceiling fans actually date back to at least the times of Cleopatra. Actually, probably as long as man has been around, there were most likely ceiling fans in some form or another. And, you might stop me there to say that there was no electricity, so there could be no fans. Well, you would be half right. There were no electric fans, but there were definitely palm frond fans. In truth, all that has changed is the power source from human-driven to electricity. Of course, the designs have changed, too, but that is to be expected, given the fact that leaves are not used in North America and colder climates. Continue reading …
Electricity has been around so long now that society is not old enough to remember when it was invented. In fact, many of today’s generation would have no clue that there was a time when electricity did not exist in its present form. Plus, most people do not function well when the power goes out due to storms and accidents, mostly because they take electricity for granted. Although the scientific concept of electricity was established thousands of years ago, the modern form of electricity, as we now know it to power appliances and gadgets, was only rolled out to the masses in the late nineteenth century.

Yes, its not just ceilings that have fans, treadmills have them as well!
I think buying a best value running machine is a really great idea. And not only for optimal fitness, either.
Here are the reasons why I think so:
They have fans on them! Yes you might have guessed it I like fans. So if when I’m running I keep myself cool with a well directed fan that I am always going to love it!
You can run all year round not matter how hot, or cold, or wet it is outside. So it doesn’t matter if you live somewhere really warm or really chilly you can still run in a nice comfortable indoor climate.
You can get sweaty in privacy! Do you really want to go to a gym and workout in front of all those other people? Or would you rather go to a park with hundreds of people walking their dogs??? Especially if you are un-fit or over weight, using a treadmill allows you to burn calories and get fit without feel self conscious and embarrassed.
If is safer and kinder for your body to run on a machine. They are designed to give you a safe running platform. There are no obstacles, no trip hazards and they have some give in them to be kind on your joints. This means that you are less likely to be injured or cause wear and tear issues as you train.
They are great if you live in an urban area. It might be that your area is unsafe (especially at night) or that it is not a pleasant place to run. Either way running in your own home can be a great alternative.
So there you go. Five reasons why I love good value treadmills.
They are a great way to get fit and lose some excess body fat.
They are great fun and they even have built in fans to keep me cool. Seriously what more could a man ask for?
Let’s finish off with a really fun video, shall we?
