The right ceiling fan can do a lot for you and your home. Equal parts form and function, a good ceiling fan can provide a nice, relaxing breeze while also tying the room together aesthetically. But, like any home improvement project, there are more than a few things to consider before you pull the trigger on a new fan. 

To make sure that your fan is the right one for you, be sure to consult with your Integra representative.

Factors to consider when buying your ceiling fan

1. Fan size and ceiling height

Before you make any final decisions about any ceiling fans, you need to ensure that the fan you’re interested in is the right fit for your space. 

While bigger fans may mean less forceful air, the air distribution would be better making the room feel breezy and better.

For example,

  • In a room up to 50 square feet, choose a 36″ fan.
  • Medium size rooms up to 50-70 square feet can fit fans from 36″ to 42″. For rooms of size 70-150 square feet, go for fans of 48”.
  • For rooms of size 150-250 square feet, go for fans of 54”
  • For rooms of size more than 250 square feet, go for two fans kept at two ends of the room
  • Not only is the fan size, even ceiling height also of utmost importance. If the ceiling height is too much and the fan rod is too less, the airflow and the room cooling would be very less. It is recommended that the fan be at a height of 9 feet from the floor.

2. Blades

A combination of shape, length and style makes up a fan. The primary function of fan blade is to push air downward while creating a downward raft and making the room feel cooler. As an outcome, these blades can push air either up towards the fan or downwards towards the floor. 

A fan can have from 3 to 7 blades with most common ones being that of three blades. The more blades, more the air flow, however this also means a corresponding increase in the price. So keeping the price factor in mind, one can decide the number of blades they want their fan to have from a wide range of orpat fans.

3. Energy Efficiency

As eco-consciousness sweeps the globe, a keen eye on energy consumption is essential when choosing household appliances. Interestingly, ceiling fans emerge as champions of energy efficiency in the cooling products market. 

Most fans use about 90 watts of electricity, far outperforming even the most energy-efficient air conditioning system but Orpat fans consume only 28 watts of electricity.  Explore our collection for an energy saving ceiling fan that suits your budget.

Consequently, many homeowners are installing an additional ceiling fan as an energy-saving alternative to air conditioning.

The advent of Brushless Direct Current (BLDC) fans takes energy efficiency to a new level. These state-of-the-art fans utilize Brushless Direct Current Motors, which employ electronics for spinning. This technology reduces electricity consumption and enhances the  fans lifespan. 

The brushless design also means fewer moving parts, resulting in lower maintenance needs. If you seek a robust, durable, and energy-conserving fan, a BLDC fan could be your ideal pick.

4. CMM and RPM in fan

The rate of airflow from fans is directly proportional to its rotational speed, measured in RPM. As RPM increases, the fan discharges a larger volume of air, thus enhancing its cooling capacity. 

A standard 1200 mm fan runs at 300/350 RPM, while high-speed fanscan reach speeds of 380/390 RPM. The rate of airflow is measured in Cubic Meters per Minute (CMM), with an airflow delivery rate of 205-230 CMM considered optimal.

5. Cooling Power

Lastly, the crux of any fans’ functionality lies in its cooling power – its ability to deliver a refreshing breeze. This feature evaluates the fan’s capacity to generate a gust of air intense enough to effectively cool the given space.

For instance, the cooling power of a fan is often determined by its CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute) rating, which measures the volume of air the fan can move per minute. The higher the CFM, the more air the fan moves, and the cooler the room feels. 

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, a fan should have a CFM rating of at least 75 CFM to effectively cool a room of 100 square feet.

The cooling power is also influenced by the fan’s blade span and motor power. Generally, a larger blade span and a more powerful motor result in a higher CFM and thus more cooling power.

Therefore, when choosing fans, it’s crucial to consider its CFM rating, blade span, and motor power to ensure it can generate the desired level of air movement and create a truly refreshing environment.

Visuals as an additional feature

As a semi-permanent fixture, you want your newly installed ceiling fan to look good in your home. An out of place ceiling fan can detract from the overall aesthetic of your home. And since most fans come with lighting fixtures, you also can consider which lighting will best compliment your room. There are options like spotlights and multiple glass shades that can enhance the design. 


In the grand scheme of fan selection, the balance of size, efficiency, and aesthetics often hinges on your unique requirements. 

For example, if your ceiling fan hums for over 12 hours a day, it’s worth focusing on the star rating, a benchmark of energy efficiency, as a primary factor. On the other hand, if your fan is rarely used and serves more as a complement to your decor, then aesthetics rise in importance. 

Ultimately, it’s about finding the right fit for your needs, blending the perfect mix of practicality and style. 

Remember, the perfect fan isn’t just about moving air, it’s about enhancing the space it inhabits while quietly adding to your comfort.
