The Different Types of Ceiling Fan

Standard ceiling fans are one of the most common types of ceiling fan that feature a variety of operating systems, five blades and a light. Available in antique bronze, white, black, antique bronze and natural finishes, these ceiling fans are versatile and can match almost any décor. One of the greatest benefits of installing this type of ceiling fans is that they can be customized to fit the décor of your home in a better way. While the light has shades that can be easily be changed, these fans can also be fitted using different accessories such as customized blades, pull chain , remote control or different light kits. However, before buying these accessories it is important that you check the manufacturer’s specification to ensure that the accessories you buy will work with your fan. A standard ceiling fan can be mounted on both sloped and flat ceilings by using a down rod- metal pipe that attaches the mounting bracket of the fan to its motor. This type of ceiling fan is an ideal choice for indoor rooms that feature ceilings that are about nine feet tall.

#2: Flush mount Ceiling fans

Also known as hugger fans or low profile ceiling fans’, this type of ceiling fans are installed directly onto the mounting bracket instead of using a down rod. Therefore, this type of ceiling fans is best suited for homes that have ceilings that are less than eight inches tall. Moreover, since the blades of a low profile ceiling fan is close to the ceiling, it cannot move air terrifically on its own. However, since it is a useful tool that can help move heated air throughout the room, using this type of ceiling fan can help you run your HVAC system less frequently. Hugger fans though are installed close the ceiling allow easy customization just like standard ceiling fans.

#3: Remote controlled ceiling Fans

A remote control ceiling allows you to adjust lighting, fan speeds and direction of the blade with a press of a button. This type of ceiling fan is great option for those people who are not tall enough and find it difficult to reach the pull chords of the traditional ceiling fan. A ideal choice for room that have high ceiling, this type of ceiling fans can also be convenient for auditoriums, shops, large event rooms or restaurants.

Additionally, since these ceiling fans have the ability to circulate air over a larger area, they prove to be a great choice for both indoors and outdoors use.

Popular rooms that are best suited for a damp ceiling fan include sunrooms, covered porches or patios.

Made of heavy duty materials, this type of ceiling fan is capable of moving a lot of air and can withstand harsh environments. Installing these ceiling fans in an agricultural setting not only help improve air quality, but also help reduce energy cost by nearly 20 percent.

This type of ceiling fan features all weather blades and motors that help them running smoothly even in high humidity and moisture ridden conditions. In addition, wet ceiling fans can handle snow or rain and are an ideal choice for homes constructed near the beaches.
