THE GREAT FAN DEBATE

 

Ceiling Fan Fanatics…you know who you are. You simply cannot imagine a day without the breezy effects these moving structures create in your home. Enjoyable in any season, ceiling fans are an energy efficient way to keep your house cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter months, which make them a crowd favorite.  But, with so many different factors to consider within each home and particular space, how do you know what to look for when choosing your perfect ceiling fan? Let us walk you through our five-point checklist to help you solve the great fan debate.

LOCATION-

The most important place to start when embarking on your fan search is considering the location of your fan.  This determines what you will be requiring from it in regards to air movement, lighting options, and its overall functionality in your space.  For example- a standard 12’x12′ bedroom will require a more standard sized fan of 52″-54″ in span, while a 20’x20′ great room with vaulted ceilings is going to demand a larger ceiling fan of 60″ or greater to evenly circulate the air.  Is your fan located in a dry, indoor space?  Or, will it be exposed to humidity and other damp or wet elements?  Knowing this information will help our consultants determine exactly what type of motor and size of fan will best suit your space.  This informative video below, from Kichler, serves as a great tool to help you get started.
