Using a Ceiling Fan on a Sloped Ceiling
If the ceiling has any kind of slope angled pitch, a sloped ceiling adaptor is necessary. When purchasing a ceiling fan it is important to check the ceiling angle with which the fan is compatible. That way, you can successfully install a fan right where you want it.
Here are some tips when shopping for sloped ceiling compatible fans:
Some fans include a sloped ceiling adaptor that can accommodate angled ceilings. Check the details carefully as each ceiling fan manufacturer has different specifications.
If the fan is a standard mounting fan and it is intended for use on a sloped ceiling, it is necessary to purchase a sloped ceiling mounting kit. These options are typically listed in the details section of the product's page and will often include links to these specific kits.
Especially true for fans being mounted on sloped ceilings, extra downrods may be necessary if the room has a high vaulted ceiling. Whether your ceiling fan is hung at the standard 8-9 feet from the floor or higher up, it is important to find a downrod that will accommodate for each room's particular height.
Finally, keep in mind that some ceiling fans just can't be adapted for a sloped ceiling. It is always good to double check this detail before purchasing a fan for a sloped ceiling.
