Ceiling Fan

With rising energy costs, ceiling fans have become a great way of making homes more energy efficient. Ceiling fans, as we’ve stated previously, can not only make your home cooler in the summer—even without air conditioning—but they can also keep your home warm and toasty in colder weather.

However, choosing a ceiling fan is more than just finding one that matches your interior: you should also treat the room’s square footage to ensure that the fan can do the job. Here’s everything you need to know.

How to Choose the Right Ceiling Fan Size for a Room

First, calculate the square footage of the room where you intend to hang the ceiling fan.

Calculate the room’s square footage.

You may use an online square footage calculator or do the math:

Determine the length of the room (in feet)

Calculate the width of the room (in feet)

To determine the square footage of a room, multiply its length by its width.

Finding a fan with the proper span

Once you’ve determined the square footage of the room, you can choose a ceiling fan that is the proper size for the space based on the fan’s span.

A ceiling fan’s span is the distance (in inches) between the tips of one blade and the tips of the opposite blade (i.e. the diameter). If the fan has an odd number of blades, calculate the radius by measuring the distance from the edge of one blade to the centre of the fan and multiplying it by two.

Pick a ceiling fan with the appropriate span for the room:

36-inch span in rooms up to 100 square feet

42-inch span in rooms up to 200 square feet

52-inch span in rooms up to 400 square feet

Rooms measuring more than 400 square feet: a 60-inch fan or two 52- or 56-inch fans

Make sure there is at least one fan, regardless of the size of the room or the fan.
