Here we offer a useful guide to assist you when choosing your ideal ceiling fan.
Size of the room
The size of the ceiling fan (its radius) must be pursuant with the size of the room you are planning to install it in.
A very big or a very small fan won't work at its maximum efficiency. In order to make your search easier, the ceiling fans in our website are categorized in accordance with the different room sizes. This information is also available in every product description, but you can check yourself by following this table:
Less than 12 m²/ 39 sq ft---> 75 cm-100 cm / 30"-39" radius.
12 to 20 m²/ 39 to 65 sq ft---> 105 cm-125 cm / 41"-49" radius.
20 m² / 65 sq ft or more---> 127 cm-185 cm / 50"-73" radius.
Height and inclination of the ceiling
The ideal distance between the blades and the floor, which will guarantee a safe operation, is 2.1m / 6ft 10
In case of lower ceiling, you must choose a model with distance between blades/floor up to 20 cm / 7.9".
If, on the other hand, your ceiling is too high, you need to make sure that the ceiling fan you chose is compatible with down rods that can assure the safe distance between floor and blades.
In case your ceiling is inclined, please choose a fan that allows installation on inclined ceilings. You will find detailed information in the description of every product.
Installing a ceiling fan with light can give the comfort you seek but also maintain or even increase the lightning of your room.
Some models come with traditional bulbs light fixtures, others - with LED plate. We offer a variety of ceiling fans with dimmable lights or with adjustable light temperature.
Types of motor
Ceiling fans can be provided either with a DC or an AC motor.
DC motors guarantee a much quieter and smoother operation, decreased power consumption, and a better control over the speed of rotation, because they usually have 5 or 6 levels. Besides, they produce much lesser vibrations when installed on false ceilings.
AC ceiling fans offer a versatile control - pull chain, wall control or remote control, whereas DC ceiling fans usually come with remote control (except KlassFan Models that are compatible with wall controller).
Type of the room
When choosing a fan, you must consider the type of the room, you are installing it in. It plays a significant role, because every room's conditions and requirements are different (kitchen vs bedroom).
In every model product description, you will find information on whether the ceiling fan is more suitable for a bedroom, a living room, or a kitchen. We also offer ceiling fans for outdoors. You can also browse our website by type of room.
The style of your fan must also correspond to the style of your room or home. Since it will be hanging from your ceiling for a long time, it'd better be esthetical, too.
We strive to offer ceiling fans in different styles, so that everybody could find the right one for themselves -classical, modern, design, colonial, children's fans.
Different materials with different qualities like wood, chromes or colored or white ABS that will help you suit your fan to your room.
Nowadays, technology becomes more and more important to us and is an inseparable part of our lives.
That is why, we always strive to be in step with time, and to offer ceiling fans that are in line with the requirement of our technological era. The need for versatile functions grows every day.
Here are some of the functions, that you can find in the different ceiling fan models:
Reverse mode: this function allows the blades to rotate in the opposite direction, lowering the warm air accumulated at the ceiling and bringing it to where you need it most - to your feet. An essential feature for the winter, which can also be used in summer in combination with an A/C device.
Within the ceiling fans with reverse mode, there is a specific category: air destratifiers. You can learn more about them here
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, during the last days of summer when 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 it to stop before you leave and not having to worry about it while you're out.
Thermostat: A particularly useful feature that automatically measures the room temperature and sets the optimal level of the speed of rotation.
Technology is also linked to the materials, that's why fans designed for humid spaces or exteriors are made with wet-resistant materials and a sealed motor cover (IP44)
Advantages of combining a ceiling fan with an A/C or heat system
Ceiling fans can also help improve the performance of other devices.
When used in combination with heaters, ceiling fans with winter mode can lower the warm air and bring it down to the floor, where people usually dwell. Not only you will feel warmer, but you will feel warmer quicker and with less energy consumption.
Combined with an A/C, a ceiling fan will equalize the temperature of the room, so that the A/C can detect the cool air earlier and therefore save power.
Ceiling fans produce a natural fresh wind that can only be achieved by this type of device.
