Ceiling Fan Placement: Top 3 Things to Consider

Before you buy your ceiling fan, you should consider some of the following points we will explore in this blog. You can visit our blog page for more information on ceiling fan placement and fans in general.

1. Size

You must choose the most appropriate ceiling fan size for the room. Consider the size of the blades carefully. In most cases, it is best to choose a larger size as longer blades offer more efficient cooling when compared to smaller blades. In a bigger room, you could also opt to have two ceiling fans installed to increase airflow.

Ceiling fans should also be hung at least 8 inches below the ceiling and a minimum of 18 inches from walls or other items. Our professional installers can give you advice on appropriate ceiling fan placement.

3. Features
