Ceiling fans are a fantastic choice for providing your room with a cool breeze during summer, as well as air circulation all year round. However, most ceiling fans tend to be terribly ineffective when not installed at an appropriate height.
So what’s the big deal? The electrician just hangs the fan in the middle of the ceiling and you’re done with it, right?
Most modern ceiling fans come equipped with a down rod that accommodates the average ceiling height of 2.4 meters that todays houses possess. However, most houses are not the same and their style and design has changed greatly over time.
In some houses you may find quite high ceilings with varying degrees of pitch, which could include the popular vaulted and cathedral ceiling designs. If you plan on installing a ceiling fan on ceilings over 3 meters high, such as these, then an extensions rod really is a must.
For most ceiling fans its recommend the height from the floor to blades is around 2.1 meters or slightly higher. By purchasing an extension rod, you will we able to lower the ceiling fan to this recommend height on raised ceilings, to allow for optimal air movement.
Ceiling fans can lose up to 20% of their effectiveness if they are installed in rooms with high ceilings without using a extension rod.
