What is the Best Size for Small Room Ceiling Fans?


When choosing a ceiling fan for air circulation, it's important to think about the room size. In a smaller-sized room, you're likely to consider something low profile or flush mount. This way, your new fan won't be taking up more of the already limited space. Choosing a fan with a blade size of 42 inches or less will provide sufficient airflow for a kid's room smaller than 100 square feet. On the other hand, you might be thinking about fans for a large room. In this case, you can either buy one large fan for the whole space or multiple smaller fans to place evenly around the space. 


How to Size a Ceiling Fan


Flush mount ceiling fans are not only great for saving space in small rooms, but the lack of a downrod prevents a wobble as the fan is rotating, cutting down on noise. A reversible motor will ensure that the fan can continue to provide proper air movement in both summer and winter. Most small fans come with three fan speeds so you have control over the amount of air circulation you want. These settings are adjusted with either a pull chain, wall switch or remote control. Homeowners delight in finding many energy-efficient ceiling fans in our product selection to help you save on energy costs. Look for high cubic feet per minute per watt rates and high CFM airflow rates.
