Guide To Kids Ceiling Fan

Doing up the interior of your child’s room is a rewarding experience. It is a huge responsibility too. Because it is one corner of your house where safety and security can not be compromised at any cost. And this is particularly true of the electrical items of the room.

A light and the fan being the basic needs of any room, buy a suitable kids ceiling fan keeping in mind the following points:

Make sure that the kids ceiling fan of your choice is of high international standard. Most of the top companies sell specially designed kids ceiling fans.

In general avoid buying such kids ceiling fans which may cause your child’s irritation. Sound and constant wobbling of the fan are the two common sources of disturbances. A weak motor and improper curvature of the blades along with minute variation in the fan blade weight distribution are responsible for producing noise. Always go for the kids ceiling fan which has a motor having sealed bearings requiring no lubrication. Also be sure that the kids ceiling fan of your choice is approved by U.L. or an equivalent testing agency. Choosing the right fan blade pitch is also important for the prevention of noise. Make sure that the blade has a pitch of 12 to 14 degrees.

Be particularly cautious about the location of the installation. Check out whether the ceiling is properly braced. Avoid installing the kids ceiling fan just above the bed and use the rod with the length as short as possible.

Next important point in consideration is the looks of the kids ceiling fan. Vibrant colors naturally attract the young minds. Especially for very young children, the continuous spinning of a colorful object overhead causes a great source of joy. In stead of uniform color scheme, you can opt for the kids ceiling fan with blades with cartoon or wild life motifs painted on them. Kids ceiling fans in the shape of a particular object like football or animal like leopard are also available in the market.

Just sneak into the kids section of the website of the fan maker of your choice. For a personalized touch, you can paint some funny things on the blade yourself.

If the ceiling of the kid’s room is less than 8 feet, then do not opt for a lighting attachment.
