Our fans will keep your house cool and comfortable all year.
If you’re thinking about investing in a ceiling fan, it’s important to know what your options are. There are all kinds of different fans to best suit your needs, whether you want to install fans in every bedroom or simply get an outdoor ceiling fan for a breezier porch.
Before you purchase a ceiling fan, use this simple guideline to make sure you get the right type for your home:
- Low-profile fans. Low-profile fans are also known as “hugger” fans or “flush mount” fans since they’re installed right on the mounting bracket. This makes them suitable for rooms with lower ceilings (under 8 feet).
- Energy Star fans. These energy-efficient fans are equipped to operate using less power than a standard ceiling fan. In order to earn the Energy Star rating, these fans must be at least 20% more efficient than a standard fan.
- Standard fans. These are the most common types of ceiling fans, as they’re suitable for rooms with ceiling heights of 8 feet or more. These fans are connected to the mounting bracket on the ceiling with a downrod to ensure that the blades are at least 7 feet above the floor.
- Outdoor fans. Outdoor ceiling fans can be categorized as “wet” or “damp” fans, according to the Underwriter Laboratories (UL). Wet fans are able to withstand heavy rain, whereas damp fans are only suitable for humid environments.
