In order to maximize the airflow of your ceiling fan you want to choose a fan that maximizes the distance between the ceiling and the blade while maintaining the safety requirement that the lowest part of the fan blade must be at least 7’ from the ground. Hunter offers a full range of fans that will help maximize airflow while maintaining the 7’ safety requirement. We offer low-profile fans for lower ceilings but our downrod fans offer the best airflow and can be installed on ceilings 8’ and higher.
Determines whether the fixture is safe to use in dry locations, damp locations (moist environments), wet locations (direct exposure to water) or extreme exposure. Please note that outdoor fans can also
be used inside.

Small Flush Mount or Low-Profile Ceiling Fans
Smaller rooms tend to have lower ceilings, typically measuring around eight feet. While low ceilings can make finding a fan a bit more difficult, we offer safe, functional, and fashionable fans in compact sizes. Flush mount and low-profile options keep your fan close to the ceiling so they're out of the way, but still highly effective. Designed with minimal housings that mount directly to the ceiling without downrods, many flush-mount and low-profile fans feature small blades to fit undersized rooms. 30-inch to 48-inch blade options let you pick the small blade ceiling fan that's right for your specific space.
Small Room Ceiling Fans with Lights
A lot of smaller rooms, especially those that have been converted from garages, attics, or basements to more functional spaces, lack overhead lighting. Small ceiling fans with lights give you a great lighting option so you don't have to rely on lamps or windows. We offer a wide selection of small ceiling fans with lights to make finding the right option for your room simple. Operate one-bulb, two-bulb, and three-bulb fans with your choice of a pull chain, wall switch, or remote control.

Are Small Ceiling Fans Effective?
