Capitol-wise Fan-buying Tips…

Size Matters: For maximum efficiency choose 50- to 56-inch ceiling fans for rooms up to 225 square feet and larger; 36-to 44-inch fans for medium sized rooms up to 144 square feet; and 29-to 32-inch fans for smaller rooms up to 75 square feet.
Get the Height Right: Install ceiling fans higher than 7 feet above the floor in the center of the room for maximum comfort, safety and aesthetics. Optimal placement would be either 8 or 9 feet above the floor.
Blades of Satisfaction: Fan blades determine the amount of air being circulated throughout the room. The ceiling fan blade brackets should be positioned to hold the blade at a 12-15 degree angle and be weighted and matched as a balanced set to avoid having your fan wobble. The greater the angle of the blade, the more air circulation. A ceiling fan with less than a 12 degree angle will not circulate air as well and be less efficient. Blades should be composed of wood or acrylic and be sealed and treated to resist humidity.
Know your Motor: The heart of every ceiling fan is the motor. The motor is responsible for producing quiet operation while driving the blades for air movement. Look for high-quality motors with heavy-duty windings and sealed bearings that are permanently lubricated. Top quality motors are designed to work flawlessly for long periods of time and some are guaranteed to last for the life-time of your fan.
A Strong Finish: A high quality finish will resist against blistering, tarnishing, fading and corrosion. Less advanced finishes on fan blades may peel, bubble and corrode quickly.
Be Wary of Warranties: Buy from reputable dealers who stand behind the quality of their merchandise. Fan motors and parts should be guaranteed for at least three years. Top quality fan motors may include a lifetime warranty.
Light it Up: Choose light kits to complement room décor and add the finishing touch. Capitol Lighting offers a vast selection of lighting and fan light fixtures. Opal, marble, crystal, painted glass and hand blown glass may be added to a fitter or fixture shade for a unique, stylized design.
Invest in Quality Control: Portable hand-held controls or sophisticated wall control systems provide excellent versatility and convenience. Control systems may offer up to six fan speeds (in either the forward or reverse direction) and full range light dimming for the highest degree of comfort and ambience.
