Importance of Ceiling Fan Blades

Ceiling fans have three basic parts: a.) motor, b.) mounting device and c.) blades. When talking though about the effectiveness of moving air, either to cool or to help make the room warmer, can be attributed as well to the design of the ceiling fan blades – aside from the motor design, power and speed.

A usual ceiling fan can have three to five ceiling fan blades. These ceiling fan blades may come in different numbers, sizes, lengths and designs. The more the number of blades are, the bigger the sizes of the ceiling fan blades, the longer they are, and the more effective their design – would mean a more expensive ceiling fan.

When measuring the quality of ceiling fans, we refer to their ability to move air effectively and efficiently in order to produce the desired effect on the area. These ceiling fans can be considered of good quality if it can produce the desired cooling effect during summer seasons, and if it can produce the warming effect on winter seasons. These are made possible with the change of direction or rotation of the ceiling fan blades and on the scientifically engineered design of these blades.

Pitch of ceiling fan blades

The pitches are actually the angular edges of these blades. These angular edges are the key to the effective manipulation, replacement and movement of air during the fan’s operation. The shape or the design of these ceiling fan blades determines the degree of replacement of air. The higher the pitch, the more air is moved.

Length of ceiling fan blades

The shorter the fan blades, the higher its speed – however air circulation is lesser. Also, the shorter the blades are, the noisier they are during operation unlike the longer blades. The longer the ceiling fan blades, the better the circulation of air – and the more comfortable the immediate environment becomes.

Also important is the balance of these ceiling fan blades, since if they aren’t, the fans will wobble. If you are finding replacements for your ceiling fan blades, it is thus advisable to buy only those that are specified by the manufacturer. These specific ceiling fan blades with their unique dimensions and shape, have been intended specifically by manufacturers to match the fan design and compatibility with the motor for optimum performance.

Ceiling fan blades do play an important role in the overall efficiency of these fans. Their dimensions and specifications are all part of the manufacturer’s grand design, together with other fan components, in coming up with quality ceiling fans that provide users with the comfort aspired upon.
