Tag Archives: Which size ceiling fan do I need
At Fantasia Ceiling Fans we often get asked for advice about ceiling fan installations. For example which size of fan is best? With this in mind here are a few tips to consider when sizing up a ceiling fan.
It’s always more comfortable to run a larger fan on a slower speed rather than running a smaller fan on high-speed all the time. Always install the largest you can fit.
As a very rough guide here’s a list of room sizes and the minimum ceiling fan size requirement
12ft x 12ft (3.65m x 3.65m) = 1 x 36″/42″ (91cm/107cm) ceiling fan – Examples would be Capri, Splash, Mayfair, Gemini, Sigma.
15ft x 12ft (4.57m x 3.65m) = 1 x 42″ or 52″ (107cm or 132cm) ceiling fan – Examples would be Sigma, Trinity, Viper, Alpha, Orion.
20ft x 14ft (6.10m x 4.27m) = 1 x 52″ (132cm) ceiling fan – Examples would be Viper, Classic, Palm, Propeller.
25ft x 12ft (7.62m x 3.65m = 2 x 42″ or 1 x 52″ (107cm or 132cm) ceiling fan – Examples would be Mayfair, Vienna, Viper, Alpha, Propeller.
Conservatory Consideration – We would recommend using anything smaller than a 42″ (107cm) ceiling fan in a conservatory. A smaller fan is not sufficient to deal with the heat build up conservatory roof systems create.
