How to Choose a New Ceiling Fan?

If you’re thinking to yourself that your ceiling fan is looking old and wobbly, then it’s probably time for ceiling fan replacement! While we are approaching into the colder months, it’s still important to ensure your ceiling fans are working properly – there are many reasons why you still need a working ceiling fan in the colder months. When it comes to choosing the right one to replace your old one with, Neighborhood Electric has some advice for you!

When looking to replace your ceiling fan, you can just go to the store and choose whichever one is cheapest or you like the look of it the most. You need to consider a couple of things before making your purchase, and here are what the considerations are…

4 Things to Consider When Choosing a New Ceiling Fan

  • Room size

The most important thing to consider when doing ceiling fan replacement is the size of the room you are replacing your fan in. You don’t want a fan that is too big or too small for your room, so here is a good way to determine what size you need:

Small rooms such as offices or bedrooms: We typically recommend a 29-39 inch fan
Large rooms such as large bedrooms or living rooms: We recommend getting a 42-52 inch fan
Open concept living space such as living/dining room combos: We recommend getting a fan that is 56 inches or bigger
Ceiling height

Any kind of ceiling fan you get will hang low off the ceiling. So, depending on the height of your ceilings, you’ll need to get different kinds of ceiling fans with different types of ceiling mounts which we will discuss next.

  • Mount type

As previously stated, there are different kinds of ceiling fan mounts that you will need depending on the height of your ceilings. If you have standard height ceilings of 8-feet, you’ll need to go with a flush-mount ceiling fan. If you have higher ceilings of 9-feet in height, you will want to go for a standard mount ceiling fan. Lastly, if your ceilings are 10 feet or higher, or maybe you have vaulted ceilings, you’ll want to go with the extended downrod mount option.

  • Brand

The last thing you will want to consider when choosing a ceiling fan is the brand. In the case of ceiling fan replacement, the brand does matter. There are some ceiling fan brands that are better than others, and here at Neighborhood Electric, we typically recommend Hunter Fans, Manika-Air, or Kichler.
