Here at The House Of Lights, homeowners in Vero Beach, FL have been using our ceiling fans for years to keep their homes cool in the summer and cozy in the winter. Plus, they’ve also been reaping the benefits of reducing their energy costs. However, you won’t see these benefits in your Vero Beach, FL home if you don’t have the right size fans! Today we’re here to give you some sizing tips so that you can get the most out of your ceiling fans in Vero Beach.

  • Size actually matters! If your ceiling fan is too powerful or too large for the room it’s in, then the air is only going to bounce off itself as it circulates around the room. If you have 7 or 8 big blades on your ceiling fan in a small room, then your air will move less efficiently than with a ceiling fan with 5, smaller blades.
  • In general, it’s important to know that 4 blades is window-dressing and any more blades will add drag to the motor. For a room up to 100 square feet, look for fans that have a 30-49-inch blade span with 203 blades. If you have a room that’s larger, up to 400 feet, then you want a blade span that’s between 50-54-inches and no more than 4 blades. Have a bigger room? Look for blade spans of 56-inches or more and a maximum of 5 blades.

With The House Of Light’s exceptional variety of new styles and designs of ceiling fans, you’ll have no problem keeping your Vero Beach home comfortable. Call today!
