Here we offer a useful guide to assist you when choosing your ideal ceiling fan.
According to the size of your room where you're planning to install your ceiling fan, we must consider the square feet of the room and the radius of the blades. A very big or a very small fan won't work at its maximum efficiency. To help, our website categorizes each and every model according the room size they're best designed for. This information is also available on every model page but you can check yourself by following this table:
Less than 12 sqm / 39 sqft---> 75cm-100cm / 30"-39" radius.
12 to 20 sqm / 39 to 65 sqft---> 105cm-125cm / 41"-49" radius.
20 sqm / 65sqft or more---> 127cm-185cm / 50"-73" radius.
Height and slope of the ceiling
As reference, the safe distance you must follow is 2.1m / 6ft 10" distance blades to ground. If you have low ceilings you must choose a model with a distance of ceiling-blades of 20 cm / 7.9" or less. If you have high ceilings you must choose a model with an available longer downrod that once installed will respect this safe distance.
If you have a slope on your ceiling, then you have to choose models that will adapt to this. Every model has the maximum angle listed in its page.
Installing a ceiling fan with a light kit can give the comfort you seek but also maintain or even increase the lightning of your room.
You can choose from regular light bulbs or LED ready. LED plate or models that offer selectable light temperature or color.
Types of motor
Ceiling fans can be equipped with two diferrent motors. AC or DC. AC motors allows you to install a wall control that can't be used on DC fans ( with the exception of KlassFan models)
On the other hands, DC engines are more quiet( including the ones labeled Hyper Silence), use less power, have a bigger range of speeds and produce no vibrations on plasterwork ceilings.
If you're unsure if the radius, windpower will correlate with the area of your room, then our advice is to choose a DC that's slightly bigger than recommended. This way, even if the wind is too much, it's 5 or 6 speeds will allow you to easily adjust them to your comfort, whereas an AC motor only has three speeds.
Surroundings of your ceiling fan are very important. A kitchen is not the same nor it has the same conditions as a bedroom or living room.
Inside every model page there's information on whether a fan is more suited for a bedroom or even exteriors. From the wet resistance of the materials to the noise they produce. You can also browse our website by type of room.
The style of your fan must also correlate to the general design of your room. It has to be a nice object to look at since it will be there all year.
We offer a broad selection of designs from modern or classic to colonial or for children's rooms.
Different materials with different qualities like wood, chromes or colored or white ABS that will help you suit your fan to your room.
Nowadays, ceiling fans must be more than just fans or light points, they must be modern in a technological point. Therefore, we've listed in every model page the many functions a ceiling fan can have:
Reverse mode: this function allows the blades to rotate in the opposite direction, lowering the hot air stuck in the ceiling and bringing it to where you need it most. An essential feature for the winters but that can also be used in summer in combination with an A/C device.
Timer: Like in many other devices, the timer allows you to set the moment in which you want your fan to stop spinning. For example, come the last days of summer where the days are hot but the mornings are cool, you can program your fan to stop during the night while you sleep.
It can also be used as a money-saving tool, by programming a stop before you leave and not having to worry about it while you're out.
Thermostat: A particulary useful feature that will automatically measure the room temperature and adjust it to your comfort.
Technology is also linked to the materials, that's why fans designed for humid spaces or exteriors will be made with wet-resistant materials and a sealed motor cover (IP44)
Within the Reverse mode, there are other types of ceiling fans: The Air destratifiers. You can learn more about them here
Advantages of combining a ceiling fan with an A/C or heat system
Ceiling fans can also assist other devices
When used in combination with a heater, ceiling fans with reverse mode will lower the low density air and briging it to space where you are and where you need it. Not only you will feel more heat, but you will feel it earlier and with less heat usage.
Combined with an A/C, a ceiling fan will equalize the temperature of the room, so that the A/C can measure the cool air earlier and therefore save power.
Ceiling fans by themselves prodce a natural fresh wind that can only be achieved by this type of device.
