The last thing you want in a ceiling fan is a lot of noise. Before you purchase a new ceiling fan, be sure to take the time to check the noise ratings. If you can actually test the fan and see how noisy it is. The best ceiling fans will be so quiet that you'll barely even know that they are running.
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.
However, before I get off the subject of what to buy, a word or two to the wise. This is not a purchase that you want to make with the idea of saving as much money as you can on these units. Manufacturers of inexpensive units have become more and more clever at making their products look great. However, a ceiling fan needs to pass the test of time and extensive use and many if not most of the cheaper units simply don't pass this test. Inexpensive fan casing is often made from thin material that may not be of the best quality.
