January 22, 2010, Newsletter Issue #186: Selecting a Ceiling Fan

Tip of the Week

In some places air conditioning is a must but if you just want a little breeze, a ceiling fan may be all you need. Before you buy just any ceiling fan, however, figure out which ones would be best for your room. The bigger the room the bigger the fan should be and vice versa. Also, your ceiling fan design should reflect your taste. If you're a modern designer choose a funky and more ecclectic ceiling fan. If your taste is more traditional, the basic and traditional ceiling fans are available. Here is a little ceiling fans guide to follow: A room up to 50 square feet needs a 29" fan. A 36" fan is needed for a room up to 75 square feet. A 42" is needed for a room 10' x 10' or 100 square feet. A 50" to 52" fan is required for a room up to 400 square feet.

Tip: Some modern ceiling fans come equipped with remotes that adjust the fan when the room grows warmer or cooler, turn lights on or off when you're not home, and lower the light level when you leave the room. Even fans have gone high-tech.
