How to choose a ceiling fan?

Choosing a ceiling fan location
Fan should be placed in the centre of the room, unless the space is too large and require 2 or more fans for better airflow. For safety reasons, we recommend to avoid installing a fan directly above a bed.

Depending the room size
A large bedroom or living room would require a large ceiling fan (blade length: 56 to 60 inches) to move the air effectively. For smaller room, fan blade length between 44-56 inches will be adequate. However, the size of the fan also depends on individual needs.

Mounting measurements
A ceiling fan needs to be 2.4 – 3.0metres, from the floor, with the blade tips at least 0.6 metres away from walls or tall furniture. If you're using more than 1 ceiling fan, do ensure to install them 3 metres away from each other (distance between the downrod).


Ceiling height
Room with high ceiling requires a more powerful fan to promote air circulation. Ideally, a ceiling fan should be at least 2.4 – 3.0meters from the floor.

In situations when the ceiling is extremely high, extension fan down rod can be used. A general formula for calculating down rod length is to take the ceiling height less 2.4 – 3.0metres. Example, if your ceiling height is 3.65metres, after deducting 2.4metres (from the floor), the down rod required is 1metre long.
