Apart from having the capability of creating a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere within the home ceiling fans circulate fresh air anywhere they are placed and consistently keep spaces at a favorable temperature in both warm or cold periods.

Ceiling fans come in a variety of styles, sizes and colors and can complement any decor. They are some of the most widely bought home appliances and can be found in three out of five homes across America.

With that said as it relates to persons who do not own ceiling fans but are interested in getting some installed there are some factors that can be taken into consideration when you go out to purchase yours.

Now the first thing you want to evaluate is the size of the room in which the fan will be placed. For instance if you place a small fan in a large space it will not only have an awkward appearance but it won’t provide the amount of circulating air required to cool the room.

In most residential homes the standard clearance for ceiling fans is between 6 to 7 feet however it is recommended that there be at least 8 feet of clearance between the floor and blades of the fan this will ensure that there is adequate air circulating throughout the entire room as well as safety for persons moving to and fro.

People that reside in warmer climates should consider purchasing ceiling fans with more powerful motors as they function to cool air more efficiently in extreme heat. If a fan is used with a less powerful motor in these warmer climates then it is highly likely that the velocity produced from a smaller motor won’t permit air to be circulated at the speed required to keep the area cool hence why it is recommended that fans with more powerful motors be installed.

If you already own a ceiling fan you probably know the comfort and convenience you enjoy just having them around however sometimes homeowners can encounter issues with their fans causing them to operate less efficient or pose certain risks.

One of the most common problems encountered with ceiling fans is wobbling and should be addresses as soon as it’s noticed as it can lead to serious injury or damage to property. This is mainly caused by the blades being off pitch or warped.
