The best ceiling fans for large rooms

  • Anna Ham

Large rooms can use up a good bit of air conditioning power to keep cool. A large ceiling fan is an energy efficient way to help keep you cool and your air conditioning bill a bit lower. Large ceiling fans are functional as much as they are fashionable. Farmhouse, modern, casual – There are a myriad of Hunter large ceiling fan styles to match your large room décor.

How big of a ceiling fan do I need?

You first need to determine just how big of a ceiling fan you need. Measure the length and width of your room to determine the square footage. Also be sure to measure your ceiling height so you can determine if you need a large, low-profile ceiling fan, a large ceiling fan with a standard downrod, or if you’ll need an extension downrod for your large ceiling fan.
