When buying a ceiling fan, look for one that includes a light fixture if important to you, and if it has an Energy Star rating which means it can help reduce your energy bill. Perhaps most important is the fan’s ability to circulate air at the speed you want. And if the fan will be installed in the bathroom or another humid area, look for a damp-rated ceiling fan that will eliminate more moisture from the air.
