When it comes to ceiling fan installation in Fort Worth, there’s more to it than calling an electrician and getting the job done. Before you do that, you need to choose the right fan for your home.
Choose the Right Size
Start by making sure your fan is the right size before you call an electrician in Fort Worth. Most fans are measured by blade span or the inches across from blade tip to blade tip. Most fans run between 36 and 80 inches.
Larger rooms will require larger fans for effective cooling power, though room size is not the only factor you should consider when choosing a fan size. You can talk to your expert in electrical installation in Fort Worth to find out what they recommend for your specific room/s.
Choose the Right Height
In some rooms, it’s appropriate to have a flush-mount ceiling fan, where there’s a minimum drop between the ceiling and the fan. These are usually recommended by electricians in Fort Worth for rooms with low ceilings.
High-ceilinged rooms may require a hanging rod to properly place the fan for effective cooling. That way, the fan will be close enough to the people in the room to effectively move the air around them. You may also want a hanging rod if the ceiling is sloped, so the fan doesn’t have to hang at an angle. Your expert in ceiling fan installation in Fort Worth should be able to tell you what they recommend.
Choose Your Controls
Different fans have different control mechanisms. Some people prefer the old drop chain, while others like to control their fans from a wall switch. More updated fans may also offer remote controls, or even an app you can download to control the fan from your mobile phone.
While control methods are usually a matter of personal preference, some fans may not offer certain options. When you contact us about your electrical installation in Fort Worth, we can help you select a fan that meets all of your needs, including those around how the fan is controlled.
