Did you know the fall is a great time to installing ceiling fans? I know I hate the idea of crawling in my attic in the heat of summer or the cold of winter – and many fans are on sale this time of year now that the worst of the summer heat has passed.
If you’re thinking of installing a ceiling fan I’ve found some very affordable and incredibly attractive ceiling fans for you – and many of them are on sale!
Here are some tips for selecting and installing your new ceiling fan:
- Place your fan as close to the center of the room as you can
- Make sure there is a lot of space between the fan blades and your walls
- Hang your fan at an appropriate height based on the height of your ceilings (rooms with high ceilings should use a down rod)
- Never hand a fan lower than 7′ from the ground – if you have short ceiling try an enclosed flush-mount fan or one that installs on a wall
