What Size Ceiling Fan Do I Need?
Choosing the right ceiling fan size is key to ensuring it provides optimal efficiency and doesn’t look out of place. The size of a ceiling fan is based on its blade span (also known as blade sweep), which is the diameter of the circle created when the blades are spinning.
Blade span can be determined by measuring from the tip of one fan blade to the tip of the blade straight across from it. Although height may differ based on whether you have low or high ceilings, the ceiling fan size itself should stay consistent with the square footage of the space.
Use the info below to determine what size ceiling fan you need.

How to Know if You Need Ceiling Fan Repair?
If you’ve ever been worried about a ceiling fan that wobbled, worry no more. The reason a fan wobbles is not because of how it is mounted but is instead all about alignment. When the fan blades are out of balance, a fan will seesaw. There are several reasons that might cause your ceiling fan to rock back and forth precariously, but there is usually no threat of the fan falling down.
Reasons your ceiling fan may wobble:
- Bent blade irons
- Blades of different sizes or shapes
- Blade irons not screwed on straight
- Warped blades
A wobbling fan can be a nuisance, and a visit from one of our electricians can solve the problem right away. If your ceiling fan is wobbling, don’t hesitate to contact HART HVAC for dependable repair services!
