Ceiling Fan Downrod 

A downrod is a ceiling fan extension rod made of metal that connects the fan's motor hub to the mounting hardware. An extension rod helps to reduce wobbling of ceiling fan, and create the proper distance between high ceilings and the floor. To know if you will require an extension downrod, you must inspect the location where you will install your fan. If you have a slanted ceiling, or the distance between your ceiling and the floor is greater than 8 feet, you will require an extension downrod.

Downrods to Match Different Ceiling Height

You cannot use just any downrod size, and selecting the properly-sized downrod for your fan and ceiling height is crucial! If you do not leave enough space between the fan blades and the ceiling, your fan will not deliver the maximum airflow volume it can offer. Similarly, if your ceiling fan is too far from the floor, the airflow will not be able to reach you down below.
