A ceiling fan can add a touch of style in addition to its ability to move the air. So, when you are ready for new ceiling fans at your home or business, how do you choose the right type? The last thing you need is to stand on the ladder for an hour only to find that you purchased ceiling fans that don’t work the best for your space. In order to get the most from your ceiling fan selections, here are three tips for choosing the right fans for your needs.

  1. Size – It’s important to note the square footage of the rooms where your ceiling fans will be installed because you will need to choose fans that will have the proper blade length to achieve good results. You may also want to make sure your fans are rated for the area they will be installed – for example, an outdoor area – to ensure they can hold up in different wet and dry conditions.
  2. Ceiling – Additionally, you’ll want to note your ceiling height and slope, so you can purchase ceiling fans that will fit the space, as well as the proper accessories to help with installation. If you have a cathedral ceiling, you may need a ceiling fan accessory that allows you to install your fan at the right height and so it is level.
  3. Style – The most fun part about choosing ceiling fans is finding a style that suits your décor and personality. There are lots of options out there, and you can choose something that will meet your needs and your budget.
