Ceiling Height

Before you purchase your ceiling fan, calculate the height of the ceiling where it will go. The ideal height between the fan’s blades and the floor is 8-9 feet. Depending on the height of the ceiling, you may need a down-rod mount.  Below is a chart to help you determine the length of the down-rod you need.

12-ft24-inch

16-ft48-inch

If you have a sloped ceiling, you will need an angle mount. As an added safety precaution, it is recommended to install ceiling fans so that the blades are more than 30 inches from the wall.

Ceiling Fan Blades

You want your ceiling fan blades to be at least 35 inches from the walls. The size of your room will help you determine the size of your fan blades.
