What Should You Be Looking For in a Ceiling Fan?
Ceiling fans are a great way to keep your entire room cool on a hot summer’s day. The right fan can also be a great focal point for the room. On top of that, many ceiling fans serve a dual function as an ambient lighting source.
One of the most important things to consider when you’re getting a ceiling fan is the size of the room you’re going to put it in. Having a fan that’s too either too big or small for the room will make drastically affect the perceived size of the room in a negative way.
Additionally, not having enough fan power will make it very difficult to cool a larger room. If your room is big enough, you may want to consider two to three ceiling fans to make sure you get the adequate amount of cooling and lighting.
Here are some helpful tips to consider when choosing a ceiling fan:
First, it’s time to get the tape measure out — and probably a ladder — so you can measure the height of the ceiling to the floor.
You’ll want your ceiling fan about 8 feet above the ground. This is both for aesthetic reasons and for safety. Hitting your head on a fast moving ceiling fan is not fun — to say the least.
Ceiling fans can be affixed flush to the ceiling or they can hang down using a downrod.
Ceiling fans are measured by the size of their blades. If you have a fan with an even number of blades, simply measure from blade tip to blade tip. However, if you have an odd number of blades, measure from the center of the fan to its edge, then multiply by two.
While an individual room’s interior design will certainly play the biggest role in determining the type of fan you should get (as well as how many), experts generally agree on these measurements:
- Rooms less than 75 square feet: 29-36 inch fan size
- Rooms 76 – 144 square feet: 36 – 44 inch fan size
- Rooms 144 – 225 square feet: 44 – 54 inch fan size
- Rooms 225 – 400 square feet: 50 – 72 inch fan size
- Rooms greater than 400 square feet: 54 – 72 inch fan size, usually more than one
Finding the properly sized fan for your room will also help ensure the longevity of your fan. When your fan is too small for a room, you’ll need to consistently work it at high speeds, which can burn the motor out sooner.
Getting the correct fan in the first place can save you headaches and repair costs down the road. Plus, you’ll be cooler!
