Ceiling Fan Rooms
A great thing about ceiling fans is that you can put them up in just about any room of the house. For example, the bedroom is a great choice. During the hot summer months, the blades of the fan can help move the air around, allowing you to sleep like a baby. Best of all, you can run your air conditioner less during the summer and during the winter, reverse the direction of the blades so the warm air is pushed down from the ceiling, thus saving you money on heat.

Since master and guest bedrooms are generally larger, a 52-inch fan is ideal. This size of fan will allow you to run the blades at a lower speed while still moving the air adequately. White fans set against white ceilings are sophisticated and elegant however, if the room were decorated in rich toned fabric and furniture, a colored or wood-grain ceiling fan would be ideal. Your best option would be a Performance or Moderate Grade.

For your child's room, again you should use a 52-inch fan whenever possible and a 42-inch only for small bedrooms. A model that is close to the ceiling is the best choice. Additionally, look for fans that come with a light fixture. A Performance, Moderate, or Medium Grade fan is best and depending on the room's décor, you can have some fun with colors or funky and retro designs.

Another room of the house that you should consider for a ceiling fan is a screened in porch. Too often, this room is forgotten yet a fan would keep the room comfortable during the evening when you sit outside. If your porch is covered but not screened in, you can even find fans that can improve the level of comfort while helping to control insects. If your porch will accommodate it, go with a 52-inch fan otherwise, a 42-inch fan would be fine. Another consideration is a fan rated for damp areas. If you live in a city with high humidity levels, this would be a better choice. For your porch, you could use a Performance, Moderate, or Medium Grade.

If your home has a dormer or loft, adding a ceiling fan will make a huge difference. Typically warmer than the rest of the house, a ceiling fan can pull the cool air up, thus making the room more comfortable. Another great option is a room with a fireplace. When you have a roaring fire, the ceiling fan can be used to circulate the heat throughout the room, which takes advantage of your fireplace and reduces your heating bill. The kitchen should not be overlooked and would be ideal for a smaller-size ceiling fan, especially if you spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Use models that hug the ceiling and choose a Performance or Moderate Grade. Once you have your ceiling fans installed, you will wonder what you did without them.
