Gable fan being installed

Are you looking for ways to reduce home cooling costs? This is one of the main reasons people buy gable fans. A gable fan mounts behind your attic gable vent and pushes all that hot air out of your attic on warmer days.

Hampton Bay Windward remote repair

We recently installed some new ceiling fans in our house which really help to keep things cool in the summer time. I installed a white Hampton Bay Windward in our old house and we never had problems with it for 6 years. So, I decided to install the Hampton Bay Windward IV in our new place. These fans are good quality and pretty easy to install. I did the close to ceiling install which is a little trickier, but if you take your time and make sure you hide the wires properly, the close to ceiling install turns out quite nice. Once we were done, the remote had about a 1-2 foot range only! Talk about frustrating. So, as with most similar issues I went online to see if we could find a solution for a Hampton Bay Windward remote repair, plus we also contacted Hampton Bay.
