Ceiling Fans - The Unspoken Hero

Tips To Help You Select A Suitable Ceiling Fan

With so many options available choosing a ceiling fan can be daunting. What factors should you consider before making a purchase?

Function -

Ceiling fans don't lower the room's temperature. They cool by creating a breeze in your space.

Tip - Best placement for fans are over beds, above family rooms & outdoor covered decks & patios

Get The Right Height -

Low ceilings 7ft - 8ft Use flush mount or ceiling huggers

Average ceilings 8ft - 9ft Using the supplied hang rod should do the trick

Tall ceilings 9ft & Up Extension rods are available from 12" to 72". They will help lower the fan to an optimal position within the space. Shop Here for rods sizes 12" 18" 24" 36" 48" 60" & 72"

Tip - Just make sure to have separate circuits for the fan & light so they can operate independently based on the type of fan you purchase.
