I'm in the process of doing a basement remodel, I've completed the drywall and now I'm ready for the drop ceiling. I was wanting to put ceiling fans to get some air movement, however the measurement from the bare floor to the bottom of the floor joists is only 7' 3" and the smallest ceiling fan I could find dropped down 7.5", which would be very low. I've read the manufacturers recomended heights and they all say at least 7' from floor to bottom of fan. I would be looking at around 6'4" and that's just to low. Anyone have suggestions on what I might be able to do about getting some air movement other than just putting some box fans on the floor? Maybe something I could put in the ceiling or wall?
I'd go with a Humidex unit, worked for me. They are quiet and use very little power. I had one installed after my basement flooded. Well worht the money. If you are in New England and need an installer, email me at [email protected] Good luck.
