In an old home I have a long, but narrow bedroom over 7' wide, but roof
narrows it to 5.5' at ceiling. It originally had what I think was a
Hampton Bay Littleton fan, which seemed to work effectively, but was plain
white. I installed a Chatham model, nice polished brass with oak colored
blades and quiet. But being a hugger with 52" blades, does not seem to
circulate very well with such a narrow ceiling, especially when blowing
down (air cannot get in above it). It works best blowing up at low or
Mostly what I find are big ones, so I am looking for suggestions for a
smaller ceiling fan that is effective, but quiet, that can use
44" Minka Aire Concept II looks effective, but its remote control with
dimmer might require incadescent bulb which I would rather not use due to
heat. They also have 42" Mesa 5 blade (would need separate light kit).
I have a 30" 6 blade Westinghouse Petite in another room (antique brass,
wood blades), which moves air well, but has a bit of a buzz. Some other
models are 42" Corinthian or Casanova Supreme.
I just don't want a noisy one for a bedroom.
