Residential Ceiling Fan Shopping Guide


A cooling fan is one of the most cost efficient solutions for cooling the home. Many indoor ceiling fans use about as much as the energy used by a 100 watt bulb light and can therefore reduce home cooling expenses. The cooling effects of such a fan allow you to keep your windows open for longer, allowing lots of fresh air to flow inside your home. It is also worth noting that you can buy a ceiling fan with a reverse mode and use it during winter so as to defray heating costs during that cold period. Here are some tips on available ceiling fan choices, they include but are not limited to the following:

The first thing you need to consider is the size of the room in relation to the ceiling fan size of the fan. Generally, a room of fifty (50) square feet or less should have a 29” fan, a room under seventy five (75) feet should have a 36” fan, a room of about a hundred (100) feet should have a 50” fan whereas rooms of around four hundred (400) feet should have a 52” fan.

Ceiling fans usually come in two mount types, flush and standard. Flush mounts keep the fan well snug to the rooms ceiling whereas the standard mounts do feature a down rod. Rooms that have a high ceiling are best served using a standard mount whereas lower ceilings are best served using a flush mount. It is also worth mentioning that the down rods do come in variable lengths.

Ceiling fans also come in different finishes and styles which complement the look of the home. The different styles available include the traditional, contemporary and transitional. In terms of finishes, white, nickel and bronze finishes are quite popular even though home owners can also opt for relatively rare finishes such as black, silver and steel.

It is also important to take into consideration the span and number of blades you require in your blade of choice. Most ceiling fans have between 2 and 6 blades even though it is possible to find blades with more than six blades. The blade span on the other hand does refer to the total diameter of the fan and most fans tend to range at anything between fifty one (51) and fifty five (55) inches. Blade pitch refers to the angle of the blades when compared against the horizon, in fact it is the tilt of the blade which produces the air and angles in a downward motion. The very powerful ceilings usually have a blade pitch of around twelve (12) to fourteen (14) degrees.
