The first thing to consider when buying a ceiling fan is the size for the room in which you plan to hang it. Ceiling fan size is measured by the diameter of the span of the fan in inches. A space smaller than 75 square feet should have a 29" or 30" fan, a 75-149 square foot room needs a 42" span, a 150-249 square foot room needs a 52" fan, a 250-400 square foot room needs a 54" to 60" fan and rooms greater than 400 square feet need 2 ceiling fans.
Obviously, you want your fan to have forward, reverse and at least 3 speeds. The blade pitch, along with the blade span, is what determines the degree the fan will cool the room. The steeper the pitch, the more effective the fan will be in moving the air. Therefore, you should look for blade pitches that are 12 degrees or greater.
