Choosing the Best Ceiling Fan for Your Home

No matter the season, a ceiling fan always has a relevant use in your home. Whether you’re cooling off your house during the warm months of summer, or circulating hot air to keep your home temperate during winter, there’s always a benefit to having a quality ceiling fan. Another advantage of purchasing a fan is that it saves money on your utility bills. Ceiling fans cut down a great deal on heating and cooling costs year round.

There are a variety of different choices available to you when it comes to ceiling fans.  Let’s talk about the most practical choices for your lifestyle.

First of all, you will want to consider the size of the room when you are trying to find the best fans for your home. Ceiling fans come in a wide range of different sizes, and the size of the room should be the basis for deciding the size of your ceiling fan. You will want to opt for a smaller fan if you are buying fans for a smaller room.

Low ceilings require a different type of fan compared to high ceilings. High ceilings need a fan with down-rods, as these will circulate the air across the living space. Low ceilings should be fitted with a flush-mount or hugger fan.

Your fan’s motor type is a vital aspect in its performance ability. There are two basic varieties of motor for fan; these are friction drive and direct drive motors. Direct drive motors are the simplest selection as they require fewer elements to operate. Direct drive motors are quite costly, but will be worth the additional expense if you are looking for a long term venting solution.

One final thing to look for in a ceiling fan is reviews from other customers. Make sure you can see what has worked and what hasn’t worked for other customers in order to save time and the hassle of having to return a dysfunctional unite.
