“Washington’s Birthday” became a federal holiday in 1796, marking the first official U.S. holiday named in honor of an American citizen. Although the holiday is officially called “Washington’s Birthday”, it has become popularly known as “President’s Day” to honor George Washington (born on Feb. 22nd) and Abraham Lincoln (born on Feb. 12th), as well as others who have served as president.
The holiday is observed every year on the 3rd Monday of February to allow for a 3-day weekend.
Act in the spirit of George Washington and ‘Honest Abe”; invest in true value for your home.
We Can Not Tell a Lie…February is the ideal time to invest in a high quality ceiling fan.
Although it may be myth that George Washington chopped down his father’s beloved cherry tree, it is no myth that upgrading your home with energy-efficient ceiling fans will reduce winter heating bills.
Top quality ceiling fans employ a reverse mode to allow warmer air accumulated at ceilings to be redirected back into the room, providing evenly distributed comfort and energy-savings.
Capitol Lighting’s models of excellence include the “Midway Eco Energy Smart” ceiling fan by Emerson Lighting, the “Palermo Energy Smart Fan from Hunter, Monte Carlo’s “Cyclone,” and the “Sundowner” from Minka-Aire.
