Ceilings Fan Tips and Recommendations

 Ceilings fans are very popular in bedrooms, great rooms, sun rooms and even kitchens. There is a fan that fits everyone's needs and expectations. From modern, to traditional and even transitional, there is fan that will meet your criteria.
"Fandeliers" are a big 2021 trend. These type of fans are used for visual appeal and are made to look to resemble a chandelier or pendant.
Some things to consider before picking a fan:
  • Location: Ideally a fan is hung 7-9 feet from the floor to the fan blades. There should be a minimum of 12" from the ceiling to the fan mount. If you are installing a fan on a sloped ceiling, make sure to purchase a sloped ceiling kit. 
  • Rating: Make sure you check the rating for dampness in a space so your fan can accommodate damp, wet or dry rates.
  • Style: There are many styles that can fit anyone’s criteria. Think of your décor, open spaces, and theme before choosing a fan.
  • Control: Adjust speed, lighting, and directions with wall controls & remotes. Decide whether you prefer a wall mount of a hand remote. There are new "fansync" options to pair with Bluetooth options as well.
  • Airflow: Consider airflow efficiency in the pitch, width, size, shape, weight, thickness, and texture. Most fans virtually illuminate noise levels too. The greater blade angle (pitch), the more air that can be moved around with less effort
  • Motor: Check to see which motor is best for your space. AC is quieter, but DC uses 70% less energy
  • Illumination: Most fans have lights installed already, but they can be added additionally with kit options to most fans.
  • Downrods: Consider the height of your ceiling. A 9 foot ceiling requires a 12" downrod, 10 foot=12-18", 11 foot 18-24", 12 foot 24-36" and 15 foot or bigger requires a 72" downrod or bigger.
