Use a Licensed Electrician to Install Your Ceiling Fan
Before you go ahead and make that purchase, make sure you are getting the right ceiling fan for your space:
Choose a ceiling fan that doesn’t just look good, but also performs well and has all of the features you want. For example, the size of a room determines the size of the fan you should buy. Otherwise, you will not get the best use of the fan for that room.
A small room of about 80 sq. ft. requires no more than a 30-inch ceiling fan. For a mid-size room of 144 sq. ft. (12ft x 12ft), we recommend a 42-inch ceiling fan. If the room is much larger at more than 300 sq. ft. (18ft x 20ft), then we recommend a 52-inch ceiling fan.
