A generic and standard ceiling fan used to have the blade size in between 42” to 56”. Now as it can be understood by the name itself, a small ceiling fan is something which is suitable for comparatively smaller spaces such as single dorm room, or office spaces, possibly up to or below 75 sq. feet of area. To get fit on such a small space and move freely, the specialized small ceiling fan only has the blade span from 29” to 36”. 

Previously, ceiling fans are solely considered as seasonal devices, which was mainly used during summer to cool and ventilate the entire room. But nowadays, with so many improving technologies, ceiling fans are not restricted to the summer season only but they are widely being used during winters as well. Just like in summer, during winter the ceiling fans use to circulate hot air from the room heater inside the room to keep it warm and comfortable. In the case of small rooms, ceiling fans are literally essential during summer seasons, as without proper air circulation and ventilation, small-sized rooms can get stuffed up and extremely hot.

There are several different size verities of ceiling fans are available in the market to make the whole fan choosing the process a little bit easier for the consumer. But technically the perfect size of any ceiling fan is solely depending on the size of the room only.  Hereby we are attaching a size chart of room size to fan size proportion to help you to get the idea a bit more precisely.

Other than the room size and fan size proportion, another more efficient and more precise way to determine the exact fan size for your room is the determination of CFM. CFM or cubic feet per minute is the determination of a fan’s efficiency regarding airflow. 

RADIUS OF THE BLADE SIZE OF THE ROOM
29” – 36” UP TO OR LESS THAN 75 SQ. FT.
42” - 48” UP TO OT BELOW 175 SQ. FT.
52” – 56” UP TO 350 SQ. FT.
60” OR LARGER ROOMS OR SPACES BIGGER THAN 350 SQ. FT.

Ceiling fans are more like a necessity these days and almost each and every house has at least one installed or many. Buying a ceiling fan is also not that much tricky and complicated and needs only some very few considerations only. Though these days the manufacturers make the ceiling fan buying process way easier by making multiple color and size variations of one single ceiling fan model, still the below-discussed points are necessary as well. These are:

  • As the motor is the most important part of any generic ceiling fan, so it is obviously a wise choice to go for a premium quality one as you are investing a lot of money on a mere ceiling fan. The best quality motor ensures maximum functionality of the fan for the longest time possible. 
  • The blade pitch is also an important consideration before investing in a ceiling fan. The blade pitch is the part of the key hardware which maintains the airflow inside a space. The higher the pitch, the fan will circulate more amount of air as well.
  • Always consider the size of your room, before buying a ceiling fan. For e.g., if your room is smaller in size, a larger size fan will be a total waste.
  • In today’s time, only a perfectly functioning fan is not enough and you need to invest in a model that will look good with your entire room décor and will eventually take the whole room vibe together. From vintage to traditional to contemporary, ceiling fans possess most of the intricate designs these days. So, it will always be a great wise choice to go for the one which will increase the room’s style quotient to many folds.
  • Ceilings fans equipped with several speed modes or natural breeze modes are always a better choice to invest in. As these are convenient and can be adjusted in accordance with the user’s preference as well.
  • Ceiling fans can also be used as an alternative lighting option in homes, so also consider the fans with in-built light fixtures as well.

Frequent maintenance of any electronic gadgets is a very necessary step, as they help in the optimal functioning of the machine and also increases its shelf life. The situation here in the case of generic ceiling fans are no different at all. There are a few basic steps which are all the basic maintenance of the ceiling fan is all about. These are:

In most of the situation’s dust gets accumulated on the edges of the fan blades, making it relatively slower than usual. It avoids these situations dusting and thorough cleaning of the fan once in a while is required. To thoroughly clean up the fan, first, you need to dust off all the loose dirt and clean the fan body with a damp cloth. Naturally drying of the fan is necessary before the next use as well.

Always keep an eye on all the screws and other connecting parts that are keeping the whole fan unit together. Due to excessive usage, a mild vibration may generate from the motor, which eventually results in the loosening of the screws. An occasional tightening of the screws with a screwdriver, keep the fans safe and help it in proper functioning as well.

Frequent lubrication of different joints and motor of the fan with any light oil is always proven helpful to keep the fan on its optimal functioning stage for the longest period of time.

Always looking for any additional movement or wobble in the fan while it is working to check the balance. The central body of the ceiling fan may move sideways while the fan is working if the balance is not proper. Otherwise, in a perfectly balanced fan, the center body has to stay still. Also, examine the blades often to looking for ant unnecessary dents or warped ones.

Finally, as a conclusion, it can be said that there are so many different types and variations are available in such a simple and regular home electrical gadgets and it is very much easy to get spoilt for choices. There can be so many reasons behind going for a new ceiling fan for your home. So, it is always a wise choice to consider all the necessary criteria like room size, fan size, etc before going for the perfect one.
