Choosing the right downrod for you
Downrods make sure your fan is at the right height to make the most efficient use of your fan.

For maximum cooling, your ceiling fan's blades should be 8 to 9 feet above the floor. To get your fan to the right height, we recommend purchasing a downrod.

Use the following chart to determine just how long your downrod should be.
