Many living rooms will only need one ceiling fan to circulate air effectively – and you’re the best judge of whether or not this will work for you. Ceiling fans are great at creating a wind chill effect for anyone standing beneath them, and generally cover an area up to 2.5 times their diameter. You may be able to achieve the coverage you want simply by choosing the right size fan, but this may not always be the case.
In an open plan area, you may need multiple living room ceiling fans to stay cool. It depends as much on how you use the room as it does on the room’s size. Start by working out which areas you use the most. These areas are generally good spots to place fans. Our stockists can offer you more advice on choosing fans for your living room.
