Best Ceiling Fan
The ceiling fan you install should be the right size for the room:
- Rooms that measure about 75 square feet need a fan with a 29- to 36-inch blade diameter.
- For rooms measuring 76 to 144 square feet, choose a fan with a blade diameter of 36 to 42 inches.
- If the room size is 144 to 225 square feet, select a fan with a 44-inch blade diameter.
- For rooms that are 225 to 400 square feet, use a fan with a blade diameter of 50 to 54 inches.
When installed, the fan blade tips should be at least 30 inches from the walls and other obstructions. The bottom edges of the blades should be at least 7 feet above the floor. Once you select a fan, check the included documentation for any additional requirements for blade clearance or ceiling height.
