1. Motor Size

Have you ever looked into the specifications of a ceiling fan? Most people ignore this part for some reason. One of the reasons could be lack of knowledge. However, these are the same people who will complain about the fan’s performance later at home. To ensure that you have the best quality ceiling fan, you need a good quality motor.

The motor is the most important piece of the fan. So, if you’re spending a lot of money, you need to make sure that your fan has a premium fan motor.

Fan blades determine the airflow in the room. For blade pitch, the higher the pitch, the more air circulation you will have in your room. The blade pitch is usually between a 12 to 15 degree angle for optimal circulation. All the fan blades must be weighted and matched as a balanced set to avoid having your fan wobble. Ceiling fans that have less than 12 degree angle will not circulate air properly. It will be less efficient. The greater the angle or higher the pitch of the blades, the more air circulation you will have in the room.

Although that doesn’t mean that you will install a larger pitch blade ceiling fan in a small room. You need to take the room size in consideration to buy a ceiling fan. For example, 42” to 48” blade span is suitable for bedrooms and dining rooms that are up to 175 sq. ft. For larger bedrooms that are up to 350 sq. ft. 52” to 60” blade span are preferable. On the other hand, for small spaces like bathrooms and kitchens that are about 75 sq. ft. you can choose 29” to 36” blade span.

Blade pitch and size are entirely related to the size of the room.
