Types of Ceiling Fans 

When shopping for a ceiling fan, there are a few things to keep in mind. Where will the fan go? Inside or outside? Outdoor ceiling fans are different in that they are rated to handle wet or damp elements outside. On the other hand, indoor ceiling fans are optimized to be used inside and rated for dry environments. 

Your next consideration might be whether you prefer fans with lights or fans without lights. This is purely a choice based on aesthetics. Both fan types function similarly, the only difference is whether you want the lighting functionality or would prefer it without. 

Ceiling Fans for Sale: What to Know About Fan Sizes?

When it comes to fans, size matters more than anything else. It affects the air flow of the room as well as the energy efficiency. A good rule to follow is the bigger the room, the larger the ceiling fan. 

Fan Size Diameter Room Size Example
Up to 29 inches 50 square feet or lower Utility room, hallway
30-36 inches Up to around 75 square feet Small bedroom or office
42-48 inches Up to 175 square feet Kitchen, bedroom
52-56 inches Up to 350 square feet Master bedrooms, living rooms
60 inches and up Over 350 square feet Great rooms, open floor plans

A fan’s energy efficiency is measured in cubic feet per minute, or CFM. The higher the CFM, the more efficient the fan is. The reason for that is that the motor of the fan generates heat, so the higher the efficacy rating of the fan, the less heat it produces – meaning a cooler room and a lower energy bill for you.
