Ceiling Fan Locations
Ceiling fans are an excellent way to decorate and cool a house, office, or apartment. Ceiling fans look nice and can reduce the costs of heating and cooling significantly. This is especially true in hot climates or in climates where the summer temperatures are extremely warm and muggly. One important decisiion to make after you have decided to implement a ceiling fan plan is where to place the ceiling fans. This article will outline some of the strategies in placing the ceiling fans and also in determining how to set them up.

One of the keys in determining where to place a ceiling fan in a room is the size of the room. For large halls or living rooms, a large ceiling fan will be required to move the air about effectively. This means that the legnth of the ceiling fan blades should be somewhere between 45 and 50 inches. For smaller rooms, the blades of the ceiling fan can be quite a bit smaller, maybe in the range of 30 to 35 inches. The blades for mediaum sized rooms should be somewhere in the middle. some very large rooms will require very large, or multiple fans in excess of 50 inches.

Another factor besides the size of the room is the height of the ceiling. Rooms with high ceilings could require a more powerful fan in order to move the air around. Most ceilings stand at about 8 feet from the floor. This is the height at which most fans are designed to operate. If your ceiling is shorter than this, you should try to obtain a special, compact fan. This fan does not need as much space to operate. Moreover, if the ceiling is extremely high, you should instead, hang the fan a little more so that it dangles down until it is placed at it optimal 8 to 9 foot height. If this is not possible, you should consider getting a special fan.

If you are considering placing multiple fans inside a house (which many people do) you should be careful to consider the circulation pattern of your house. You should also not place ceiling fans too close together in the same room or they can work against eachother. The circulation from one room to another can make the air quite pleasant during the hot summer months. Clearly ceiling fans are an excellent alternative or complement to the air conditioning.
