Selecting a Ceiling Fan

electrician adelaide

Location

Before installing a fan, it is crucial to consider where you will be locating it. If the area is close to a light source above, this can sometimes cause a flashing light strobe effect. In an instant like this, we recommend fans with light attached to them, or re-locating the fan or light. As a rule of thumb, we recommend mounting ceiling fans 300mm away from the ceiling and 2.1m from the floor. Extension poles are available for some models.

Cabling Accessibility

Ceiling fans will require additional cabling from the fan controller on the wall to the new fan. Cabling accessibility can be an issue for internal or solid walls. One solution to this problem is to consider a ceiling fan with a remote control. While remote control fans can reduce on installation costs, they are generally more expensive to purchase initially.

Type and Design of Fan

Metal blade fans generally make more noise than their wooden counterparts, which is why recommend wooden fans for bedroom areas. However, the noise levels of a fan will depend on the number of blades, their design and angle they are installed on. The cost of fans will vary on all the above-mentioned items, generally the quieter fans will cost a little more. As a rough size guide, rooms 20m2 can use 122cm fans, and 20m2 to 36m2 should use 132cm fans.
