Here are a few more tips to consider while you're shopping for the right fan(s). The size of the room determines the span of the blade you should be looking for. You'll find blade spans that range between 29\" to 56\". The smallest blade span will work for a room that is no bigger than 50 square feet while a 36\" blade span will service an area of approximately 70' to 80' square feet. Larger rooms, such as 100 square feet need at least a 42\" blade span and a room that is larger than 100 square feet should have a fan with the longest blade span you can find.
