FanMatch Quiz

Answer a few quick questions and we’ll help take the guesswork out of finding your new ceiling fan!

Welcome to the FanMatch Quiz

We understand it can be overwhelming and confusing with all the ceiling fan options available. Our FanMatch Quiz tool is designed to help you answer some of the important technical questions that will help you find the right ceiling fan for your needs. Answer a few quick questions and we’ll help match you with the right ceiling fan!

What type of airflow do you prefer from your ceiling fan?

On high speed, what is the style of airflow (cooling) you typically enjoy from ceiling fans?

 
Gentle
Gentle airflow will provide a pleasant, relaxing flow of air but will not be strong enough to blow away decorations, napkins, etc. Typically suited for dining areas and bedrooms where quiet, gentle airflow is preferred.
 
Moderate
A moderate breeze is typically sufficient for dry and mild climates. For many people, this level of airflow output is preferred for small to medium bedrooms and is an acceptable balance between wind chill and noise output.
 
Fast
Models with a fast breeze rating will provide significant airflow and cooling directly below the ceiling fan. Recommended for very humid and hot climates, customers that prefer strong airflow and for outdoor ceiling fans.
 
I’m not sure
Not sure what type of airflow you need? We can show you all models – simply keep an eye on the Fan Breeze rating listed for each model to help make a decision later.

What size room do you need your fan for?

Choose the closest match to your room size. There’s no ‘right’ size for a space and you typically have a bit of wiggle room in your choice. Your ceiling fan size is a personal preference. You should consider how your ceiling fan will appear in your space (e.g. bolder, high contrast finishes will dominate a space more than lighter more subtle finishes). Always ensure there is at least 50cm between the tips of your fan’s blades and any wall. For large areas, its often better to install multiple smaller fans than one large fan.

 
2.8m x 2.8m
For very small rooms we recommend either 45″ or smaller models.
 
3m x 3m
For small rooms we recommend 48″ or smaller models..
 
3.5m x 3.5m
For average size rooms we recommend between 44″ and 52″ models.
 
3.8m x 3.8m
For above average rooms we recommend 48″ to 56″ models.
 
4.5m x 4.5m
For large rooms we recommend 52″ to 60″ models.
 
5m x 5m
For very large rooms we recommend 56″ and larger models.
 
HVLS
For very large spaces our High Volume Low Speed (HVLS) ceiling fans may be suited.
 
Other
If your room doesn’t fall into one of these categories or you aren’t sure, choose this option.

What finish (colour) would you like?

Are you looking for a particular finish of ceiling fan to match your home decor? Choose an option below and we will help highlight the closest matches.

 
White
Blending your white ceiling fan into a white ceiling makes for an unobtrusive, crisp and minimal look.
 
Black
Black ceiling fans provide a stark, bold contrast to most interior colour schemes and ties in with other fixtures and fittings.
 
Silver
Silver ceiling fans provide a modern design that can tie in with other silver fixtures in your space.
 
Designer
We’ll include designer finishes such as Oil-rubbed Bronze, Satin Brass, and Graphite.
 
No preference
Don’t have a preference on finish? Choose this option.

Where will your ceiling fan be installed?

Select a location to help us narrow down models that include features and materials suitable for your space.

 
Indoors
There aren’t really any limitations on which ceiling fan you can use for an indoor space.
 
Outdoors (undercover)
Ceiling fans installed outdoors should be crafted from certain materials and be able to resist outdoor conditions.
 
Coastal
Lucky enough to live near the ocean? Your ceiling fan will need to be manufactured from stainless steel or polymer (plastic) in order to resist the harsh outdoor conditions.
 
Not sure
We won’t filter your results based on this metric.

How high is your ceiling where the fan will be installed?

Depending on your ceiling height, some of our fans may not be suitable. Please choose the closest match below.

 
Low (2.4m)
We will filter our ceiling fans that don’t meet Australian Safety Standards for low (2.4m) ceilings which require your fan blades to be at least 2.1m from the floor.
 
Standard (2.7m)
For ceiling heights between 2.5m and 3.0m you will generally be able to use most ceiling fans without requiring a downrod accessory.
 
High (Above 3m)
For ceiling heights between 3.0m and 4.0m we typically recommend installing a downrod accessory to bring your ceiling fan blades to the optimal height of 2.4m to 2.7m from the floor.
 
Very High (Above 4m)
For ceiling heights above 4.0m you will require a long downrod to bring your ceiling fan blades closer to the floor. Depending on the room and fan chosen, it may be ideal for your ceiling fan to hang higher in the air than normal.
 
Not sure
Not sure on your ceiling height? Choose this option.

What sort of slope will your fan be installed on?

Before purchasing your new ceiling fan, it is important to check that it will be able to support your ceiling angle. The majority of our ceiling fans support up to moderate slopes, and some of our fans have an accessory available for very high slopes.

 
Flat
All of our ceiling fans support flat ceiling installation so you can freely choose from our range.
 
Gentle (Up to 10°)
Nearly all of our models support gentle slopes (although there are a few exclusions).
 
Moderate (10° to 15°)
Some of our DC ceiling fans do not support ceiling slopes above 10 degrees.
 
Steep (15° to 20°)
Many of our DC ceiling fans do not support slopes above 15 degrees.
 
Very Steep (Over 20°)
Many ceiling fans with remote controls struggle to support slopes over 20 degrees without a sloped ceiling kit accessory.
 
Not sure
If you aren’t sure of your ceiling slope choose this option. This is an important consideration and should be checked before purchasing.

Do you need your ceiling fan to include a light or no light?
