How do you determine ceiling fan size?
Begin to determine your needed ceiling fan size by calculating the square footage of the room. Its easy to measure a rectangular room to determine its square footage. Extend a tape measure from one wall to the opposite wall to determine the length. Then measure the width of the room using the same method.
Are 3 or 5 blade fans better?
The main difference between a 3 bladed and 5 bladed ceiling fan is evident on its looks and personal taste. When it comes to design and aesthetic look, the 3 bladed ceiling fan is more pleasing than the 5 bladed. Generally, the more blades the ceiling fan has, the quieter it is and circulates less air.
Select a fan with the appropriate span: 36 inches for rooms up to 100 square feet, 42 inches for up to 200 square feet, 52 inches for up to 400 square feet, and either one 60-inch fan or two 52- or 56-inch fans for rooms larger than 400 square feet.
