What to know before you buy a fan

Go Back to the blog>>

Summer is here,and that means more heat. Using a fan in your home can increase air circulation and help make your home feel cooler.
Decide before you buy what you need from a fan, and where it will go in your space. Fans come in many shapes and sizes, meaning that it’s not a one fits all.
Before you purchase a fan, take a moment to look at your room. How big is it? How tall is the ceiling? How many windows are there? Where do you want to set the fan – on the floor, on a table, on the ceiling, or mounted on a wall? All of these factors can influence which fan you purchase. Once you have all this information one of our team members can give you the right advice.

  • High Ceilings Need a powerful fan and the right height placement.

  • Place your standing fan so that it faces the opposite wall from where most of the activity takes place in your space.

  • Table fans will need a clean flat surface close to an electrical outlet to operate.

  • A wall-mount fan is placed high above any air obstacles.                                                           

  • Will the fan replace the main light source? if yes, choose a ceiling fan with integrated light.

  • Don’t forget to check if you need 110v or 220v.
