Before shortlisting the right fan to install in your room, you'll need to be clear of its purpose. Will it be the only fan in the room or will it work in tandem with other ceiling fans? Will it be decorative or dual purpose- both for lighting and cooling the room? Commonsensical as it sounds, there are many who overlook this step only to regret their purchase decision because the fan they chose lacks the functionality needed.
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.
You want a fan with high quality fan components. For example, the die cast motor housings are far better than stamped motor housings. This is because the die cast motor housings reduce the fan's noise and keep the fan stable. You will also want your fan to have bearings that are permanently lubricated and it should have an oil reservoir that is sealed.
Ceiling fans add a lot to a room and to houses, the ceiling fan is an almost mandatory feature in most tropical and warm climate countries, it helps to circulate the air, and making this from the top position of the ceiling is not only saving the valuable space below but also providing with an excellent cooling breeze.
A light kit will attach to your existing ceiling fan. Or, you can also purchase a brand new ceiling fan that comes with the kit installed. The choice is completely up to you. Ultimately, the decision borders on what ceiling appliance you currently have installed. Also, is this appliance compatible with a kit? To determine if your fan is compatible with the light kit you want to install, there are a few ways for you find out. First, look at the product details of the fan you purchased, or the instruction manual.
