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.
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 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.
