What Size Ceiling Fan Do I Need? 32", 42", 44", 52" Ceiling Fans

42", 44", 52" Ceiling Fans

Small rooms - Rooms that are smaller then 64 square feet (8' x 8') should utilize a fan with a 32" blade span.

Medium sized rooms - If your room is up to 144 square feet (12' x 12') then utilize a fan with a 42" or 44" blade span.

Large rooms - Rooms that are up to 225 square feet (15' x 15') should utilize a fan with a blade span of 50", 52" and etc. up to a max of 56".

The span of each blade is important. You want a fan that moves enough air around to cool the entire room. Also, you want to avoid putting a ceiling fan that will move too much air around. Below we have recommendations on which fan you should install into your home, based on the size of the room you're installing in. These recommendations are based on the blade span of the fan - that length of each ceiling fan blade. The larger blades will move more air and thus, are to be installed into larger rooms.

Usually fans don't go larger then 56" in blade span. However, some industrial and commercial fans can have blade spans up to and including 60."
