Ceiling fans are one of the best ways to improve comfort and airflow in the home, and perceptive homeowners use them at all times of the year. During the warmer months, ceiling fans provide more efficient cooling, and in winter they can help circulate warm air, even when used in conjunction with a whole house heating and air conditioning unit. Ceiling fans come in various styles, sizes, and functions, but when deciding on which one is best for their individual home, a homeowner must consider several things.

Size and Type

The first detail to consider is the size of the room. This will determine the size of the blades that will be the most efficient in cooling the room. The paddle span for residential ceiling fans range from 29 to 54 inches. If purchasing the fan for all year use, a reversible fan is a great asset for the cooler months. The professionals at Mister Sparky will assist the homeowner in determining the best options.


Another important detail is the style of the fan. If the ceiling fan is going in a child’s room, it can be a more casual, whimsical style and have blades and hardware finished in primary colors. A fan going in a study will be more conservative, perhaps with a dark wood finish and polished hardware. Ceiling fans used in a sunroom will add to the light airy atmosphere with the blades and hardware having a more relaxed feel.


Just as in the assistance of selecting the right ceiling fan for the homeowner’s needs, Mister Sparky will know which mounting is necessary for the secure and efficient operation of the newly installed fan. There are various mounts available depending on the type of ceiling and the size of the room.
