Blade irons/brackets: Blade irons attach your ceiling fan blades to the motor, connecting the fan together after it is mounted.
Once you get your new fan home and installed, you’re going to love it. You’ll get the same great style and versatility that you had with your old fans. People have commented that although they were loath to give up their lovely, old ceiling fans, they like the new ones just as well, or sometimes even better.
Low ceiling adapter: A low ceiling adapter is a kit which accomplishes the same thing as a downrod. Usually made of brass or another metal, a low ceiling adapter kit attaches directly from the ceiling and omits the need for lowering the fan at all as it automatically hangs a little farther down with the adapter.
Take a walk-through of the nearest Home Depot. By walking up and down the aisles and looking at the various fans that are displayed on the ceilings above, you’ll be able to see how much lower some fans hang than others do. By sticking with the options that hug the ceiling, you’ll have your light and air circulation back and in working condition in no time.
Downrod: A downrod is really a very simple piece of equipment. Made of wood, metal, or plastic, the downrod is simply a rod that hangs from the ceiling, allowing your ceiling fan to hang lower from the ceiling’s surface. Some prefer this only for the look of a lower fan and some would like the breeze of the fan to be stronger, but for either reason a downrod will correctly lower your fan safely and effectively.
A down rod is nothing more than an extension, really. The higher your ceiling, the longer you want the down rod to be. If you have ten foot ceilings, you should have a one-foot down rod. Down rods increase total airflow and bring the blades themselves closer to where you need it.
