Which room is the fan for? Click your answer below

a) Bedroom
All Fantasia Fans are guaranteed to be whisper quiet in operation, making them a popular choice for bedrooms. You may want to consider positioning the fan above the bed, or towards that end of the room, although a centrally positioned fan will still generate a cooling breeze.
b) Conservatory
As conservatories tend to get hotter than the average room we recommend that you ‘up-size’ to a larger fan such as a 42” 52” or 54” model. Most conservatory installations will require a drop rod to lower the fan to a suitable level of operation and ensure that the slope of the roof does not obstruct the blades. Flush mounted fans require a conversion kit to fit a drop rod – see our Product Specifications section for more information.
c) Lounge
Fantasia Fans are available in a wide variety of finishes to match most décor and in varying spans to suit any size lounge. See our size guide below for information on which size fan would suit your lounge.
d) Kitchen
The kitchen can often be the hottest room in the house and a fan can serve as a welcome relief! Whether you have contemporary Brushed Nickel or traditional Polished Brass fittings, there is a Fantasia Fan to suit your requirements.
e) Bathroom
Unfortunately, the bathroom is the one room in the house where we do not recommend installing a ceiling fan.

What size is the room? Click your answer below

a) Less than 10ft square
A 36” fan will cover an area this size.
b) 10ft – 12ft square
A 36” fan will cover an area this size. However, if the room is a conservatory, or south facing, then we recommend moving up to a 42” model
c) 12ft – 14ft square
A 42” fan can cover an area this size. However, if the room is a conservatory, or south facing, then we recommend moving up to a 52” or 54" model
d) More than 14ft square
A 52” or 54" fan will cover an area up to 15ft square. If the room is particularly large, or long, then you may want to consider installing two fans – one at each end of the room.

 

Do I require lights on my fan? Click your answer below

Yes
All Fantasia fans, apart from the Blade, are light adaptable and a light can be fitted at any time. Some fans come complete with an integral light which cannot be removed or changed. See the product specifications for your chosen fan for more details.
No
Many Fantasia Fans are available without lights. However, some fans such as the Viper, Sigma and Phoenix come complete with an integral light which cannot be removed or changed. See the product specifications for your chosen fan for more details.

How high is the ceiling? Click your answer below

7ft 6” – 9ft
For ceilings this height we recommend a flush mount ceiling fan

10ft 6” – 11ft 6”
For ceilings this height we recommend an 18” drop rod. Flush mounted ceiling fans (as above) require a Conversion Kit to fit a drop rod.
11ft 6” – 12ft 6”
For ceilings this height we recommend a 30” drop rod. Flush mounted ceiling fans (as above) require a Conversion Kit to fit a drop rod.
12ft 6” – 13ft 6”
For ceilings this height we recommend a 48” rod. Flush mounted ceiling fans (as above) require a Conversion Kit to fit a drop rod.
Higher than 13ft 6”
For ceilings higher than 13ft 6” we recommend a 72” rod which you can cut down to the exact size required. Flush mounted ceiling fans (as above) require a Conversion Kit to fit a drop rod.

NB: You can cut all Drop Rods down to the exact size required.

How do I want to control my fan? Click your answer below

a) From the pull cord
For many fans, this is the standard method of control. All pull cord operated fans have three forward and three reverse speeds and can be fitted with either a remote control or a wall speed control. Some fans have no pull cords and must be operated by a remote or wall control which would be included – see the individual product descriptions for more details.
c) Wall Speed Control
All AC motor Fantasia Fans can be fitted with a wall speed control from which you can operate the three speeds. Low energy DC motor fans can only be operated from the remote control that is included. Two core and earth wiring is required to fit a wall speed control. See our Wiring Diagrams section for more information.
c) Wall Speed Control/Dimmer
If you have a light on your fan then you may want to consider installing a wall speed control and/or lighting dimmer. The speed control will operate the three speeds and the dimmer can be used to adjust the light. We supply standard lighting dimmers as well as dimmers designed specifically for LED bulbs. Low energy DC motor fans cannot be operated from a wall speed controller. Three core and earth wiring is required to fit a wall speed control/dimmer. See our Wiring Diagrams section for more information. 
d) Remote Control
Many Fantasia Fans come complete with a remote control. This operates the speeds of the fan and the light function, if a light kit is fitted. Where a remote is not included, it can be added as an optional extra. Two core and earth wiring is required to fit a remote control system. See our Wiring Diagrams section for more information
e) Dimmer Switch
The ceiling fan motor cannot be operated from a variable dimmer switch as it damages the fan motor. However, it is possible to use a dimmer switch for the light.
