5 HOW BIG SHOULD THE FAN BE? To determine the correct size ceiling fan for the space you intend to cool there are some measurements you must take first. This handy guide will give you more of an idea of what size fan you will need by assessing its future location. Measure the length and the width of the room or space and then multiply e.g. 12ft (3.7m) long by 10ft (3m) wide = 120 square feet. (11.1m 2 ). Once you know the size of your space, you can narrow your search to select size fans. See the table below for guidance. ROOM SIZE ROOM TYPE BLADE SWEEP 90 sq. ft. (8.36m 2 ) or less Small bedroom or office, galley kitchen, outdoor applications 15” to 42” (38 - 107cm) 90 - 100 sq.ft (8.36 - 9.29m 2 ) Over a kitchen table, large walk –in closet, laundry room, small screened-in porch, outdoor applications 44” to 48” (112 - 122cm) 100 - 150 sq. ft (9.29 - 13.94m 2 ) Bedroom, larger kitchen, formal dining room, outdoor applications 50” to 54” (127 - 137cm) 150 – 300 sq. ft (13.94 - 27.87m 2 ) Great room, Large outdoor patio, Master suite, outdoor applications 56” to 70” (142 - 178cm) or multiple fans Over 300 sq. ft (27.87m 2 ) Lobbies, Restaurants, Large open spaces Over 70” (178cm +) or multiple fans 1 2 3 Measure the height of your ceiling. Fans should have a minimum of 7ft (2.1m) clearance between the bottom of the fan blades and the floor. Many of our ceiling fans work with 8ft (2.4m) or 9ft (2.7m) ceilings. If your ceiling is higher, you will need an additional down rod. Bear in mind that all ceiling fans should have at least 12” (30cm) clearance from any wall or object. If you choose to use multiple fans, make sure there is a distance of at least 39” (99cm) between the blade tips of one fan and the next.
