How To Choose The Right Ceiling Fan For Your Room

There are many different types of ceiling fans designed for specific environments and purposes. The fan you might choose for your bathroom exhaust won’t be the same as a fan you choose for a living room or dining room or entertainment space. These very different environments call for a ceiling fan that is specifically rated for that space.

The Underwriters Laboratories (UL) assigns the following location-based ratings for ceiling fans.

UL Dry-Rated – Ceiling fans with a UL Dry rating usually feature furniture-grade wood blades and are primarily designed for dry, indoor locations without any exposure to humidity or moisture. These ceiling fans generally work best in rooms such as your bedroom, living rooms, and offices.

UL Damp-Rated – Ceiling fans that carry a UL Damp rating are designed to work in areas with high humidity and moisture. These fans work best in indoor locations and/or covered outdoor locations such as bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms and covered porches or screened rooms.

UL Wet-Rated – Ceiling fans that carry a UL Wet rating are designed to endure the elements such as rain, snow, and direct contact with water. The fan has a moisture-resistant motor housing and the blades are designed for all-weather use. These fans are built to perform under any conditions and work well on exposed decks, patios, and other outdoor areas.

Ceiling fans also come in a variety of different sizes and it’s important to choose a fan that is the right size and moves the right amount of air for your space. If the ceiling fan is too small it won’t move the air very efficiently, which means it’s not doing it’s job. If the fan is too large it might be a noisy distraction and will just be wasting electricity. We can work with you to determine the right sized ceiling fans for your space.

Questions About Ceiling Fan Installations?


Yes, you can usually install a ceiling fan where a light fixture currently exists, but the existing electrical box must be properly braced and rated for the weight and vibration of a ceiling fan. We can assess the situation and install the appropriate support if necessary.

Yes, ceiling fans can be installed on sloped or vaulted ceilings with the use of a special mounting bracket, known as an angled mount or sloped ceiling adapter.

No, only ceiling fans that are specifically rated for outdoor use should be installed in outdoor locations. These fans are designed with materials that can withstand moisture and temperature variations.

For optimal performance and safety, the bottom of the fan should be at least 7 feet above the floor. If you have a low ceiling, you might consider a low-profile ceiling fan, also known as a flush mount ceiling fan, which mounts closer to the ceiling.

The number of blades on a fan doesn't significantly impact its performance but can affect its appearance and noise level. Fans with more blades tend to be quieter and circulate less air, resulting in a gentler, more decorative effect. The choice between three and four-blade fans often comes down to personal preference.

A smart ceiling fan connects to your home Wi-Fi, allowing you to control it remotely from a smartphone app. Some models can be integrated with a smart home system for voice control, and others have features like scheduling, temperature sensing, or energy usage reports.

I have had multiple opportunities to work with Cody and his team on joint projects. They have always been on site when they said they would. They are effective/efficient when on site. The workmanship looks great and they keep the workspace clean. They focus on customer satisfaction. They pay enough attention to what is going on around them and will help others when they see someone could use a little help.
