Ceiling Fans. Friday , January 12th , 2018 - 14:29:51 PM
A down rod is nothing more than an extension, really. The higher your ceiling, the longer you want the down rod to be. If you have ten foot ceilings, you should have a one-foot down rod. Down rods increase total airflow and bring the blades themselves closer to where you need it.
Downrod: A downrod is really a very simple piece of equipment. Made of wood, metal, or plastic, the downrod is simply a rod that hangs from the ceiling, allowing your ceiling fan to hang lower from the ceiling’s surface. Some prefer this only for the look of a lower fan and some would like the breeze of the fan to be stronger, but for either reason a downrod will correctly lower your fan safely and effectively.
The height of your ceiling does make a difference - Just like all ceiling fans are not alike, all rooms are not the same, either. The closer your fan is to the ceiling, the less air it is going to pull. If you have low ceilings, of course, you are going to need a flush mount, meaning you will need to mount your fan close to the ceiling, otherwise it would be hanging down too low and pose a hazard. But, if you have high ceilings, you will want to install a down rod.
