A ceiling fan downrod is a metal pipe that connects the motor housing to the mounting hardware, stabilizing your ceiling fan and reducing any wobbling. A downrod also helps with proper airflow because it ensures a safe distance between the ceiling fan blades and the ceiling. It is recommended this space be at least 8 – 10 inches. The fan blades should also ideally be at least 7 feet above the floor.
Downrods range in diameter and length depending on the ceiling fan type and application. Standard ceiling fans usually have a downrod length from 3 inches to 6 inches, and that will be suitable for standard size rooms with ceiling heights of 8 – 9 feet. However, fan downrods can be much longer depending on the manufacturer and ceiling height involved.
