Indoor/Outdoor ceiling fan parameters.
I am replacing an existing 48" Indoor/Outdoor ceiling fan in a small 6' x 9.5' screened in porch. I have purchased a 52" replacement. The mount is in the center of this room, with three feet on either side. The directions for installation state "ensure the blades will be at least 30 inches from any obstruction". My planned installation would leave me clearance of about 10 inches of clearance to the screen and 10 inches to the main entryway. Since the screens are year round, need I ensure I am 30 inches away from an obstruction?
