Ceiling Fan FAQs

Ready to hire?


Although there is no standard recommended ceiling fan size, the general rule is that the bigger the room, the larger the fan should be. 

Choosing the right ceiling fan starts with deciding a budget. Then, other considerations such as style, wind speed, noise, durability, efficiency, and size come into play.

Inferior fans often have low-quality on/off pull chain switches that are prone to failure, as they use less expensive materials that can’t handle everyday use. As a result, an internal mechanism may break, such as the switch chain being pulled out of the housing. In many cases, the entire fan becomes useless, as a replacement switch is most likely unavailable.

Depends. If the replacement part is available for order, then a service provider can attempt a repair. Sometimes, the cost to repair the ceiling may exceed replacing the ceiling fan altogether.

Indoor ceiling fans (dry-rated) are for indoor use in areas without moisture, such as bedrooms, dining rooms, foyers, workshops, and dens.

Outdoor ceiling fans have two categories: wet-rated and damp-rated. Wet-rated ceiling fans can handle rain exposure. Damp-rated ceiling fans are for covered, damp areas—such as a bathroom, sunroom, or patio. But it isn’t meant to be exposed to rain or washed with a hose.

Clicking or ticking noises are caused by loose screws or unbalanced blades. 

A Few More FAQs

In warmer weather, ceiling fan blades should turn counter-clockwise. They force air down to create a cool-down effect. In the winter, run the ceiling fan clockwise at a relatively low speed. The blades will draw cool air up and force warmer air down.

First off, ceiling fans help cool down a room or other area of a home. For example, a fan with a high wind speed can cause a space 80 degrees to feel more like 72 degrees.

Additionally, fans can help to warm up areas of a home. When set in reverse, ceiling fans push warm air that has risen to the ceiling down to the lower parts of the room while saving you up to 30% on winter energy bills.
