Ceiling Fans For Sloped Ceilings - Important Considerations
The first thing you need to know about ceiling fans for sloped ceilings is that you'll have to put the fan up.
We had a problem. One of our sales folks a few years ago... We insisted that to sell ceiling fans, he needed to know how to install one.
But he hated heights. He wouldn't go up the ladder. He helped with the assembly over in the corner while we hung the fans.
You can't sell a ceiling fan until you've been in the customer's shoes. So we made him go up the ladder. Eventually.
You can put any of our fans on an angled or sloped ceiling except for a hugger fan, which only work on flat ceilings. Besides having to go up the ladder, there are a couple of other things you need to consider.
The first thing you should know is that there are lots of great ceiling fans for sloped ceilings. I'll talk you through these considerations.
Let's start with the number of fans. How many ceiling fans do you need? One or two? Or three? That depends on your room dimensions. As there are so many larger fans available today, if your room is about square you may need just one fan. If your room is twice as long as it is wide, you might need two fans. If it's really long or L-shaped, you may need three!
