Ceiling Fan / April 27, 2018 / Bernadette Aguilar
Just like all ceiling fans are not alike, all rooms are not the same, either. The closer your fan is to the ceiling, the less air it is going to pull. If you have low ceilings, of course, you are going to need a flush mount, meaning you will need to mount your fan close to the ceiling, otherwise it would be hanging down too low and pose a hazard. But, if you have high ceilings, you will want to install a down rod. A down rod is nothing more than an extension, really. The higher your ceiling, the longer you want the down rod to be. If you have ten foot ceilings, you should have a one-foot down rod. Down rods increase total airflow and bring the blades themselves closer to where you need it.
On the somewhat negative side, when you are dealing with a website, you have no face-to-face contact with the seller and so that intuitive sense of trust or not to trust is missing. In addition, while most websites have come a long way in trying to build buyer confidence in their integrity and reliability, this is sometimes still a factor. Also, it may take a week or so to get what you paid for when you order a ceiling fan online.
