Thinking of installing a new ceiling fan in your room? Then you will need to know how to choose the right one. Unfortunately, choosing a ceiling fan is not as simple as some may thing; in addition to design and looks, there are many other factors you will need to take into consideration when assessing its suitability for your use. Here, we examine some of these factors.
You will also find that the motor type is important when you are trying to pick out the best fan. There are two types of motors that are usually used in ceiling fans - friction driver motors and direct drive motors. Usually a direct drive motor is the best choice, since they last longer and have fewer parts that are separated. However, they do tend to be a bit more expensive, but are well worth the extra money you'll pay.
When first thinking about getting a ceiling fan the average person does not really know what is needed, this is why Hunter ceiling fans are amazingly flexible and make all kinds of different blade sizes and low profiles, this kind of thinking is what makes it almost sure that any house and any room could have a Hunter ceiling fan installed in it, and not only can it be installed, with Hunter Ceiling Fan progressive thinking almost everyone can do it with a friendly and easy installation and maintenance kit. Another nice feature that the Hunter ceiling fans have is an optional light kit on many of its models so you can use the ceiling fan as a light too, saving yet more space and using the unique and special design of the Hunter ceiling fan for your lighting needs.
How big is the fan that you want to purchase a light kit for? Another good question. If the fan is a big sucker, say 44" - 52" blade span (or more), there's more likelihood that the fan will have a compatible light kit. Children's fans that are smaller have less chance of having a compatible kit. One thing you may want to consider is simply to purchase kits with your fan, when you purchase your fan. Often times when installing a fan, you simply need to think about how light comes into the room you're installing into. If you have lots of windows and light coming in, you won't need a light kit for this appliance. But if you are installing in a basement, garage, workshop, or other room with low light conditions, just purchase the light kit too. You don't even need to install it initially - put it away somewhere until you decide to install it.
What is it you should be looking for when choosing a ceiling fan? Of course there are many factors, but just like choosing any other home appliance, like a refrigerator or a washer/dryer, you should be thinking of not only decor and style, but functionality as well. Here I will go over the many different aspects, some tangible, some intangible, of choosing the right ceiling fan for you.
