Kids ceiling fans come in many different fun and imaginative designs. The designs are usually picture on the blades and the light fixture. You can also find kids ceiling fans with different blades lengths. Most children's ceiling fans come with short wingspans but they can be found in spans up to 55". Therefore, you are sure to find the right fan for the size room the child has.
Contrary to popular belief, ceiling fans are not for the hot-weather months alone. Sure, they provide that extra cooling power in summer, but did you know that you can use your fan in winter, too? That's right. A ceiling fan can also help to make the hot air from your heater rise in winter, as well. All you have to do is to reverse the rotation of the blades. Just hit the switch and make your blades move counterclockwise. This cause the fan to pull the air instead of push it. This is especially beneficial if you live in a two-story home. Myself, I do live in a two story house, and I find that on moderate winter days I can pull the hot air from downstairs and thus not have to use the upstairs heater at all. Since first discovering this simple technique, I have cut my electricity bill in winter by 25%. Yes, it really works!
Other popular kids ceiling fans include the Warbird series made by Craftmade. The Miss America features the colors of the American flag, red, white and blue with white stars. The blades are 48" and white. The Tiger Shark has a shark mouth as the motor cover, a red nose with a light at the tip and 48" black blades. The Glamorous Glen features yellow and red checkered nose with a silver motor cover and 58" black blades with yellow tips.
Another question you may want to ask is, is the fan that you want to install a kit onto worth installing? The reason this is also important is based on the age of the fan you currently have installed. If you have a relatively new fan that has just been installed in the last year or two, this likely won't be a problem. However, if you installed a fan 10 years back and now you want to find a light kit for it - don't bother. Having a fan that is that old means it will be next to impossible to find parts for it. If the fan should break down later after you install your kit, and you can't find the part you need - well, you basically wasted some money there.
Low ceilings require a different type of fan than a high ceiling fan. High ceilings require the fan to have down rods because down rods will circulate the air to the living space. Low ceilings should be fitted with a fan that is flush mount or hugger. A sloped ceiling needs to have an angled mount and you need to make sure that, no matter what type of fan you get, that the blades are at least seven feet up.
