- A Few Quick Tips On the Importance of Fan Blade Pitch


What Is Blade Pitch and Why Is It Important?

Blade pitch is the angle, measured in degrees, between a 180 degree horizontal plane and a ceiling fan's blade tilt.

Why is it important?

The angle of the blade makes a difference in how much air a fan is able to circulate throughout a room. The optimal blade pitch for a ceiling fan is between 12 to 15 degrees.

This degree of blade pitch will allow your ceiling fan to move a "just right" amount of air...not too much (you don't need a wind tunnel in your room) and not too little (you do need to feel a nice breeze).

Be sure to browse through all of the features of a fan's product page to identify its blade pitch, as well as blade span and efficiency metrics.
