Do you have a high ceiling? Searching for a longer downrod that will work with your fan?

A 72" downrod is for a tall ceiling. At just under $100, you're paying a little more than $1/inch - that's certainly one way to look at it. If you do have a very tall ceiling, then you will need a larger downrod / longer. A Monte Carlo fan needs to be supported by something - and that something is a downrod. The only time you don't need a downrod, is if your fan is capable of being flushmounted. Normal fans are not capable of being flushmounted unless you specifically see the fan advertised as being a flushmount fan.

When looking for a downrod, it's important to match up the length, but also the decor. Noting whether the downrod is threaded or not is also a good point to observe. Threaded downrods "screw in," which forms a stronger bond between the fan and the housing connected to the ceiling.

Titanium finish meshes well with metallic style or metallic decor ceiling fans. Titanium also goes well with rusted bronze, steel or any metal finish for the most part! If you have a metallic finish, steel, or other finish, the titanium downrod will go great with it.

The downrod featured on this page is a rubberized white finish. We also have featured, a titanium finish as well. If you have a white fan and white walls, it's recommended you match up this white finish downrod with your other decor.
