Choosing the right ceiling fan is important. They can help reduce your carbon emissions and save you some of that hard-earned money by helping you manage your household climate more efficiently. From the help of our experts, it’s never been easier to find the right fan for you.
1. Determine the correct blade span based on your room’s dimensions.
|Room Size||Blade Span|
|Small rooms up to 10′ x 10′||30″ to 48″ fan|
|Large rooms up to 20′ x 20′||50″ to 54″ fan|
|Great rooms larger than 20′ x 20′||56″ or larger fan|
If you’re unsure about the room dimensions, choose a larger fan to maximize your comfort at low or medium speed.
2. Select a style.
For a coordinated look, match the blade ﬁnish to furniture or wood molding. Or, select a fan body ﬁnish that matches door or cabinet hardware.
3. Choose the appropriate mounting accessories based on ceiling height.
Depending on the height and slope of your ceiling you may require additional accessories such as a downrod or vaulted ceiling adapter.
4. Get the light right.
Choose a ceiling fan with an integrated light ﬁxture, or customize a ceiling fan with your choice of custom light kit.
5. Pick out a fan control.
Select a wall control to operate your ceiling fan and light separately from a single switch without any additional rewiring, or choose a remote control for convenient, easy operation from anywhere within the room. Remote controls are especially convenient in bedrooms, allowing the user to control their fan and light from the comfort of their bed.
