A Ceiling Fan Buyer’s Guide: Everything To Know When Buying a Ceiling Fan With Dimmable Light.

When you are purchasing a ceiling fan with dimmable lights, there are lots of things to consider. There are many different options when it comes to purchasing these fans, ranging from the style, size, and functionality of these fans.

We have compiled a list of all of the things to consider when you are purchasing a ceiling fan. This is all listed below in an accessible guide. We know it can be difficult to make the final decision on which ceiling fan to choose, but if you follow this guide, we’re sure you will feel confident in this decision!

This buyer’s guide will ensure that you consider all aspects of this product before you purchase your fan. Let’s take a look at the main things to consider when purchasing a ceiling fan with dimmable lights!

Quality Of The Product

It is important to consider the construction material of the ceiling fan. These will vary from hardwood or pine wood finishes to steel finishes. Based on the interior of your home, it is important to choose the construction material very carefully so that it fits in well.

The construction material of these fans will mean that they differ in terms of durability. This is because of the material that they are made from. Before you purchase the fan, you should check whether this material can handle the wear and tear that it needs to handle over a long period.

Design

If you design your home carefully, you will want to ensure that your ceiling fan fits in with the home decor.

You should consider the design and color of the fan, to ensure that it fits in with the design of the room or the home as a whole.

In a bright room, you may want to add a matte white ceiling fan. However, in a darker room, you may be hoping to add a matte black one.

It is important to consider the design of the fan as it will be permanently placed in the room, impacting the overall feel of the room!

Size

You should consider the size of the fan when you are choosing the best one for you. The length of the blade and the size of the room will go hand in hand.

If you have a large room, you should purchase a large fan. The bigger the fan, the better.

You can purchase ceiling fans ranging from 36 inches to 60 inches in size. You can technically get even larger fans than this if the room allows it.

You want to ensure that the fan provides sufficient light and air in the room, so you should consider the size of the fan.

Downrod

A paddle fan usually comes with a downrod, and this feature is useful when it comes to adjusting the height based on your room size.

If your fan is being used in a large room, you will need the fan to hang quite low so that you can feel the benefit of the air.

However, if the blades on your fan are wider than 55 inches, you will want to hang this fan quite high.

Considering the downrod is also important. You want to make sure that your fan is at least 7 feet above the floor of the room. This will ensure that people won’t hit their heads or get their hair caught in the fan.

On average, the ceiling height of a room in the US is around 9 feet. This means that you won’t need a very long downrod. On average-sized ceilings, you won’t need a downrod of more than 1 meter.

Location

It is important to consider where you are going to place your ceiling fan. Whether your fan is going to be inside or outside may have an impact on your choice.

Most ceiling fans are used inside, but there are some cases where you will want yours outside. For instance, if you are looking to put the fan on a patio.

In this case, you will need to ensure that the fan is waterproof. You should keep this in mind when you are shopping for your fan. As these fans contain lighting, some are not suitable to be placed outdoors.

You should also consider the location of the fan if it is being placed indoors. If the fan is going to be placed in an indoor room, you will need to consider the size of the room. If you are placing the fan in a small room, you will need to ensure that the fan fits into the room.

Bathrooms are often much smaller than bedrooms, so you should consider this when choosing the fan for these rooms.

Knowing the size of the room is very important, as you want the fan to fit well in the room and generate enough air to cool the room down.

Lights

If you are looking for a ceiling fan with dimmable lights, you will need to consider the type of lights that you are looking for.

These fans come with a variety of different lights, including different colors and varying brightness.

Also, consider how you can control these lights. Some ceiling fans can be used in conjunction with your smart home system, and the lights can be controlled through Alexa or Google Home.

However, in other cases, you will be able to control these lights through a remote control, or a switch on the fan itself.

Motor

The motor is a very important part of any ceiling fan, and it is important to consider when you are choosing your fan.

Ensure that the fan you have chosen comes with energy-efficient ratings. You should check the ETL and UL listing of the fan to ensure that it is energy efficient.

You should also consider whether or not the fan is reversible, as this is an important feature to many. Aluminum motor casings are much more effective than others, and they do not rust very easily.
