I'd love some advice regarding ceiling fans. I am buying a new house which has no central air and no ceiling fans. Central air is too expensive a proposition at this point, so I was considering putting ceiling fans in all the major rooms to improve air circulation and cooling. Downstairs doesn't present a problem, but upstairs the ceilings are just 7 feet high. There are three rooms upstairs 15x15, 12x10 and 10x8. Are ceiling fans an option here? I've heard about the 'hugger' models, but are they going to be effective, espcially in the smaller room? If I do put them in, what do you suggest for a blade length?
Thanks in advance for your advice.
Take Care, Marta
