When choosing a ceiling fan for your home or office, it is important that you develop a rating system for yourself and then proceed to selecting the fan that you want to buy. The following points should be kept in mind:

The size of the room and the fan have to be relatable. Imagine a small fan in your master bedroom or rather a big fan with large blades installed in your kitchen that is small compared to the fan size. It sure will affect the aesthetics and also be inefficient. The thumb rule for buying a fan size which is optimum is theta for a one hundred square foot room; the fan should have blades of thirty six inches. If the room is between one hundred fifty and two hundred fifty, the fan should have blades fifty eight inches long.

Fans vary according to ceiling height. High ceilings require low fans and therefore a down rod is required for proper circulation of air in the living space. Low ceilings are usually fitted with fans that are flush mounted. A sloped ceiling needs to have an angled mount and you have to make sure that whatever fan you buy the blades have to be at least seven feet up.

Fans with high quality components are a must for all your requirements. For instance a particular type of motor might be better than another and therefore you have to opt for a better one. Look for fans with high end components that reduce the fan's noise and keep stable. A fan with an oil reservoir that keeps the bearings permanently lubricated is a good option over any other type of fan any day.

The angle at which the blades sit on the fan is referred to as pitch of the fan. Typically it ranges from eight up to fifteen degrees as the air moves better under a fan that is high pitched.

This is a very subjective term and ceiling fan price in India varies, ranging from around INR 2,000 to high end fans that can go up to INR 36,000.

After you have studied all of the above listed things about the fans you want to buy, we suggest you go ahead and buy ceiling fans online. This is the best possible and hassle free method that you can opt for and buy the best fans that suit your needs. It is easy to see a wide variety, filter out and compare different products, all in one go.
