What You Should Look for in a Ceiling Fan
Where To Install: First, decide where your ceiling fan will be installed: outdoors or indoors. Outdoor fans are usually installed on porches, patios, and garages. You can place an outdoor fan indoors. Outdoor ceiling fans are designed to withstand damp or wet conditions while indoor fans are not.
Consider Room Size: Ceiling fans are available in many sizes. Blade spans can vary from 29 to 56 inches, or even more. Consider the space you intend to install the fan in when deciding on the right size.
Consider Height of Ceiling: Another important factor to consider when selecting a ceiling fan is the ceiling height. This determines the length of the downrod. The metal piece that connects the fan to the ceiling mount is called a downrod. The fan will be raised or lowered by a shorter or longer downrod. The fan should be separated from the floor by seven feet.
Mounting Matters: Consider how you will mount your ceiling fan when you shop. You may need a special mounting set. Low ceilings will require flush-mounting (flush mount) so ensure that the product you purchase is compatible with this style. A downrod with the right length is required for higher ceilings. To mount the fan on a sloped ceiling you will need an adapter for the ceiling. This attaches to your outlet box and ensures that the fan hangs correctly.
Consider Controls: Think about how you want your ceiling fan controlled. There are three options: a pull-chain, a wall switch, or a remote. Remote controls are probably the best option as they allow you to control your fan from any place in the room. Some people may not want to have another remote, so a wall switch might be a better choice. A pull chain is an option for low ceilings. These can be difficult to use, but they are a simple option that could reduce installation costs.
Type of Motor: Ceiling fans can be powered by a variety of motors. The most popular motor is the alternating current (or AC) motors, which has been used in ceiling fans for decades. Modern AC motors are reliable and affordable.
Direct current motors, also known as DC motors, have been popular in recent years. This is because more homeowners are switching to energy-saving appliances. Ceiling fans with DC motors are more expensive but use 70% less electricity and are extremely quiet. These motors are also lighter, making them easier to install.
Frequently Asked Questions
Check out these frequently asked questions to learn more about ceiling fans.
Which direction should fan blades go?
Although it all depends on the model, ceiling fans are made to create a downward flow when they are running counterclockwise. An updraft is created when they run clockwise. People love a downdraft in summer as it generates cooling breezes. The winter updraft is ideal because it moves warm air down and allows it to circulate around a space.
Is a ceiling fan too large for a space?
Yes. A low-profile fan should be installed flush to ceilings in rooms with low ceilings. It's not a good idea to accidentally hit the fan while it's running.
How many lumens do a ceiling fan require?
If you need to lighten a whole space, make sure it has at least 800 lumens.
How can you clean a ceiling fan?
Make sure your fan is turned off before cleaning it. You may need to remove the fan from your ceiling with a ladder or a sturdy chair. To remove dust, take an old clean pillowcase and insert one blade at a time. Use a mild cleaner to clean the blade and base.
Ceiling fan lights that have encased LEDs don't tend to collect much dust. If your ceiling fan has a glass globe base you might need to take it out to get rid of dirt, dead insects, dust, and other particles.
