Re: CQD answer published Thursday June 23, 2016 -Ceiling Suspended Paddle Fan Height
The International Residential Code (IRC) addresses the height of ceiling fans in Article R305.1 as being 7'.Even though this is a building issue, there are certain things that we as electricians should be aware of. Things like egress lighting, emergency lighting, exit signs, smoke detectors, and ceiling fans. Won't find them in the NEC, but we know they exist.
Remember the bottom line is to avoid unnecessary liability.
