The vast majority of us probably have at least one ceiling fan in our homes, especially if it was built in the last few decades. The idea of propelling air around to cool us down has been around since ancient times with the use of the hand-held fans, mainly by women, to keep cool. Ceiling fans as we think of them today (those that run on electricity and use blades) were first invented in the United States in the 1860s, using water to turn the blades much like a mill used water to turn its wheel. Today, ceiling fans are important in the quest to cool our homes.
