This recently came to my inbox:
“I was recently out shopping for a ceiling fan and was curious to know what size should I purchase to accomodate the area. The room is 10 foot by 12 foot ( I believe it is). Thanks in advance, Lisa from Virginia”
In general wth a ceiling fan you want tofollow these numbers
- 75 sq. ft. 29 – 36 inch fan
- 76-144 sq. ft. 36 – 42 inch fan
- 144 – 225 sq. ft. 44 – 48 inch
- 225 -400 sq. ft. 50 – 54 inch fan
Look for the energy star logo when making your purchase. Lots of simple steps will appear as a gigantic leap when you look back at what was spent overall on your energy bills. Three things to remeber as the climate change over the months that will help to keep your money in your pocket. Counterclockwise in the warmer months will give you a winchill effect in which makes it feel cooler. 2. In the cooler months you want the blades spinning clockwise which will produce a updraft effect. This is when the warmer air is being forced down to the level in which you occupy instead of sitting on the ceiling. 3. Fans don’t cool off rooms, they cool off people. In other words turn off the fans if the room isn’t being occupied. Thanks and enjoy.
