Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fan Downrods
Unless your fan is a low profile or hugger ceiling fan, then you will need to install a downrod with your ceiling fan. Most ceiling fans come with downrods. Sometimes, even flush mount ceiling fans come with a downrod (if they are dual mount, and can be mounted in both a standard configuration as well as a flushmount fashion). A downrod’s purpose is to hold the ceiling fan in place, and help alleviate some of the wobble and vibration that the fan makes. If the downrod becomes faulty or problematic, the ceiling fan can smash down onto the floor. This does not generally happen though as long as the fan is installed properly.
The length of downrod differs based on the ceiling fan, including a number of factors such as blade span. However, typical downrod sizes consist of the following:
- 4 inch
- 12 inch
- 18 inch
- 24 inch
- 36 inch
- 48 inch
What downrod do I need for my Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fan?
Typically, the downrod comes with your ceiling fan, but if for some reason you’re in search of a downrod, this information should be helpful.
- Your Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fan needs to be at least seven feet of height from the ground
- The easiest way to determine the correct length of downrod required, is take the total ceiling height and then, subtract from that height, the height of your ceiling fan.
- After doing that subtraction, then subtract the height you’d like the fan to hang at. Most fans hang at about eight feet off the ground.
This will help you to determine what length of downrod is needed.
