How to Select a Ceiling Fan

Maximum air circulation is about choosing the right fan for the right room. Follow these simple steps to find the perfect design and achieve perfect performance.

For maximum performance and efficiency, we recommend these fan sizes to room size matches:
52" TO 54" FAN SIZE — LARGE ROOMS — UP TO 20' X 20'
30" TO 48" FAN SIZE — SMALL ROOMS — UP TO 1-' X 10'

Step 1: Select your Product

Choose the appropriate size fan for the proper combination of comfort and efficiency. (If you're unsure about the room size, choose a larger fan to maximize your comfort at low/medium speed.)

Step 2: What style & color do you prefer?

For a coordinated look, match the blade finish to furniture or wood molding. Or select a fan body finish that matches door or cabinet hardware. Many fans feature reversible SwitchBlades. A different finish on each side of the blade permits styling flexibility.

NOTE: Hunter blade finishes are pre-matched to motor finishes. Blades are not sold separately.

Step 3: How high is your ceiling?

Standard Ceilings
Most Hunter fans come with the Installer's Choice 3-Position Mounting System for installation versatility.

Low Ceilings
Hunter Low Profile fans are specially designed for low ceiling applications. The motor housing fits flush to the ceiling.

High Ceilings
If your ceiling is 9 feet or higher, you'll need an extension downrod.

Step 4: Do you need a light?

Choose a fan with a coordinated light fixture included or customize the fan with your choice of accessory light fixture. All Hunter ceiling fan light fixtures are listed for installation on Hunter fans.

Most Hunter® ceiling fans include the three-position mounting system. However, some ceiling fans include the two-position mounting system and cannot be flush mounted.

Step 5: Select a fan control

To operate your fan and light separately from a single switch without additional rewiring, choose a Hunter wall control. For convenient, easy operation in bedrooms and rooms with high ceilings, consider a wireless remote control.

Step 6: Order your fan
