Ceiling fans work well in virtually every type of room setting, however they are especially useful in smaller rooms where airflow is limited. One of the best ways to ensure that a ceiling fan is properly installed in a small room is to consider these simple yet important tips. For example, one of the easiest ways to ensure that the right sized ceiling fan is installed in a small room is to simply measure the room.
Something Known As A Flush Mount Type Ceiling Fan
Equally important is to measure the height of the ceiling when preparing to purchase a ceiling fan. In many cases, a low ceiling will require the installation of something known as a flush mount type ceiling fan. This kind of ceiling fan installation allows for the fan to be mounted very close to the ceiling. This is important in keeping a ceiling fan away from people as they enter and leave the room.
A Ceiling Fan With A Small Fan Blade Span
Conversely, small rooms that have higher ceilings may require a down rod assembly. This will simply ensure that the ceiling fan sits at the proper height from the floor. As with a large room, a small room with a high ceiling will require that a ceiling fan be installed so that it is approximately 8 feet from the floor of the room. Another key consideration when installing a fan in a small room is the actual width and depth of the room. This is important because very small rooms will require a fan with a small blade span. Typically speaking, a very small room will require a fan blade span of about 40 inches.
Homeowners Can Expect Lower Energy Bills
From small bedrooms to small offices and even small patios, there are many unique areas of a home where a small ceiling fan will work wonders in improving airflow and reducing the use of energy. Best of all, when a ceiling fan is properly installed it will ensure that it will be warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. As an added advantage, homeowners can expect lower energy bills when multiple ceiling fans are installed throughout a home.
