About Casablanca Ceiling Fans - Designer Indoor and Outdoor Ceiling Fans, Energy Star Ceiling Fans and Fan Accessories

DC Motors

Having ceiling fans in a home can serve a number of purposes, including lowering energy costs by as much as 30 or 40 percent. In the summer, they can help cool a room, but if you flip a switch so the fan turns in the opposite direction, it can pull the cold air up and help lower heating costs. Not all fans have this option, but many do. They can also look quite stylish, especially if you choose one of the designer ceiling fans that are available. You can even use ceiling fans outdoors on a porch if you choose one that is wet location approved. There are a variety of factors that should be considered before purchasing a ceiling fan.

Light or No Light

There are two main types of ceiling fans available -- ceiling fans with lights and those with no lights. Deciding which type you want can instantly narrow down the options you need to decide between. Having a light in the ceiling fan means that it will help to increase the ambient lighting in a room as well as helping with your cooling needs, but if there is already sufficient light in the room this may not be necessary. In some cases, having a light means that the fan hangs lower toward the floor, making it less feasible if the ceilings are particularly low.

Larger or Smaller

Next, you need to decide on the size of Casablanca ceiling fans that will work for the room. This is usually based on the square footage of the room. You can only use large ceiling fans in large rooms. A 12-foot by 12-foot room can fit a ceiling fan that's between 36 and 42 inches in diameter, while a room that's 20 feet by 20 feet can handle a larger fan with a diameter (or blade span) of 50 to 54 inches. However, the square footage of the room isn't the only consideration, as the fan's blades also need to be at least 1.5 feet away from any wall, so a long narrow room may need a smaller fan or two smaller fans instead of a larger one.

Ceiling Considerations

There are also some ceiling considerations when it comes to installing Casablanca ceiling fans. Many of the best ceiling fans can be attached to ceilings that slope 30 degrees or less without much adaptation, except perhaps needing a longer downrod. Ceilings with a greater slope will require the purchase of an angle mount adapter from the manufacturer, so make sure this is available for the desired fan before purchasing it. It's best to hang the ceiling fan so it is at least 12 inches from the ceiling as long as this will leave at least 7 feet (and preferably 8 or 9 feet) between the fan and the ground. It's better to have the fan closer to the ceiling than closer to the ground. That's why they make flush-mount ceiling fans for rooms with low ceilings. Purchasing a downrod makes it possible to lower the height of a ceiling fan, and these come in lengths ranging anywhere from three inches to 72 inches.

Controls

You can get fans that operate via a pull chain, a wall switch or a remote. A remote can offer more modes of operation, making it possible to operate the fan at different speeds or to separately control the fan and the light, if there is one. Without a remote, there's usually a wall switch and, in the case of a fan with a light, two pull chains to determine whether the switch turns just the fan, just the light, or both on and off.
