Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fan Downrods

If you do not have a low profile or hugger ceiling fan, you will have to install your ceiling fan with a downrod. Most ceiling fans contain downrods with them. At times, even flush mount ceiling fans also offer a downrod (if they are dual mount, enabling you to mount it in standard and flushmount setting. The aim of a downrod is to hold the ceiling fan in its place, and prevent the wobbling and vibration that the fan can generate. If the downrod causes problems or becomes faulty, the ceiling fan collapse on the floor. This incident is not possible if the fan is installed professionally.

The length of downrod depends on the ceiling fan, and also depends on other factors including the blade span. However, usually, the size of the downrod can be:

  • 4 inch
  • 12 inch
  • 18 inch
  • 24 inch
  • 36 inch
  • 48 inch

What downrod do I need for my Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fan?

Typically, you will get the downrod with your ceiling fan, but in case, if you are finding a downrod, this information will be useful for you.

  1. Your Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fan should be at least 7 feet of height from the floor
  2. The easiest way to find out the correct length of downrod needed is to take the total ceiling height and then, minus it from that height, the height of your ceiling fan.
  3. After subtracting it, then subtract the height you want the fan to hang. Most fans hang at more or less 8 feet off the ground.
