How do I choose the right size ceiling fan for my room?
The size of the room is the most important factor to consider when choosing a ceiling fan. The general rule of thumb is that the larger the room, the larger the fan. However, you’ll also want to take into account the height of the ceilings and the climate.
What Is The Ceiling Fan Size Recommendation?
Small rooms (9 sqm): 36 - 42 Inches Medium rooms (21 sqm): 42 - 52 Inches Large rooms (37 sqm): 56 - 72 Inches Extra large rooms (> 37sqm): 60 - 96 Inches or use multiple large fans.
The amount of air circulated by a ceiling fan is determined by its diameter and therefore, larger rooms require ceiling fans with larger diameters. Multiple ceiling fans are needed for rooms bigger than 37 sqm.
How many blades are best?
Dynamically three blades are best. But when choosing the three blade route it is typically harder to balance, and some of the time you may get a wind chop. The more popular choice would be five bladed ceiling fans.
Which Is Better? The DC Or AC Motor Ceiling Fan?
When it comes to energy efficiency and electrical bills, DC (Direct Current) ceiling fans are better than AC (Alternating Current) ones.
DC ceiling fans generally consume less than 60-70% of the power of a typical ceiling fan and have more speed options too. Although they offer significant energy savings and lower electrical bills, the DC ceiling fans are typically more expensive than regular ceiling fans.
