What factors do I need to consider when choosing a ceiling fan?

Ceiling fans are a great investment into the home and a necessity in Brisbane. They help to reduce electrical costs and also help increase efficiency of air-conditioners. So what things do you need to consider when buying one?

  1. Have a think about where it’s going to be installed and the size of the room.
  2. Ask yourself whether you need an extension pole (typically homes with high pitched ceilings need extension poles for ceiling fans).
  3. Do you need more than one fan for adequate ventilation?
  4. Think about the type and number of blades you need.
  5. Consider blade performance, as the higher the pitch of the blades, the more air the fan moves around the room.
  6. Do you need a ceiling fan with an inbuilt light?
  7. Think about the aesthetics of the room. Do you want your fan to stand out and be a feature or blend into your decor?
  8. Can the fan be connected to a wall switch or does it need to be powered by a remote control? Do you want a remote for the convenience factor?
  9. Will the fan have consistent exposure to moisture and or dust?
