Before Your Ceiling Fan Purchase:
Before purchasing or installing a new ceiling fan, it is important to be sure your selection will be a good fit for the room you’ll be installing it in.
Fans vary in size, and usually measure anywhere from 24 to 84 inches wide. Follow these guidelines to make sure you select the right size for your room:
Measure the height of the room from floor to ceiling. A lower ceiling height may present risk and require additional effort to ensure safe installation. Ideally, a typical room with a ceiling fan have at least eight-foot ceilings.
Be aware of the total circumference of the ceiling fan when purchasing, as there needs to be at least 18 inches from the fan blades to surrounding objects.
A 30-inch ceiling fan is usually recommended if the room you will be installing the ceiling fan is on the smaller side (8’ x 10’).
For a medium sized room (12’ x 12’), 42-inch ceiling fans are recommended.
If the room you will be installing a ceiling fan in is larger (18’ x 20’) a 52-inch ceiling fan is recommended.
