TRUSTDALE Tip of the Day: *What Type of Ceiling Fan Should I Buy?

Energy-saving ceiling fans can keep you cool in the summer and circulate warm air in a room in the cooler months, and they do not use much more electricity than the light fixtures they replace. Ceiling fans are available in a wide variety of prices, sizes and styles. Examine the size of your room and its decor to help you choose the right ceiling fan for your needs. Does this Spark an idea?


According to Consumer Reports, the most popular size ceiling fan is 52 inches, but you should choose the size that will operate most efficiently in the room the ceiling fan will occupy. Fans that are too large for the room will blow too much air around. A fan that is too small for the room will not cool it efficiently. In general, a 52-inch ceiling fan should be installed in rooms that are between 225 to 400 square feet. A 42- or 44-inch fan is appropriate for rooms approximately 100 to 225 square feet. Choose ceiling fans with a fan blade span in the range of 30 to 44 inches for rooms measuring approximately 100 square feet or less.
