Install ceiling fans on top of ceiling facing your bed is a big no no coz very bad Feng shui. Can affect health of the occupant who sleep on the bed. Sleep will not be peaceful. Better get a nice stand fan instead.

Unless this bad Feng Shui is based on common sense--and it's probably not--we poo-poo on your reason why installing a ceiling fan is a bad idea. I'm sorry but we tend to stick to science, 'round these parts.

Well you can poo poo anything you don't understand or don't like. Acupuncture was poo poo by the West for centuries. Now medical doctors started to recognize it and many also start to practice it. Anyway, Feng Shui is based on Quantum Science and uses vibration of the earth magnetic energy grid. Having something such as overhead beam and ceiling fan overhead will cause the magnetic energy to become bad Qi which will cause health problem and affects good sleep. Whether you believe it or not is not material. Feng Shui has been around for 5000 years based on the ancient wisdom of the Chinese.

Wisdom does not equate to knowledge!

Acupuncture may be recognized by modern medicine now but not all ailments can be cured with acupuncture. I have a fair understanding of quantum science so until I see repeatability in the claims of Feng Shui and corresponding scientific studies to back it up, I will not believe in it beyond those that follow common sense.

The good thing about science is it's true whether you think it's true or not.

You are basically using the same logic like there is no God because we cannot see Him. Lol

At this point, it's safe to say there's no point discussing this any further with you because you fail to understand logic. #-o ](*,)

You can say all you want but pending his landlord's approval and acquisition of the appropriate tools and skills, RATM will be installing that fan.

I have fought all my life to sleep right below the fan, lol. Stand fan is a nuisance. Wall fan is a better compromise.

Sleeping below a brushless, superquiet DC motor fan... sleep most peaceful... Feng Shui much improved in room over simply having a light in the middle of the ceiling.

I am addicted to the fan sound while sleeping. If I don't hear the fan sound, I don't get sleep. So how?

This is a good point , I just need a recording of the sound of fan/aircon , dont even need fan or aircon physically , just need to think fan/aircon is running so I can sleep well. :D :D :D

Any fan clearly improves the Feng component so it can not be bad at all but one has to take care also about the Shui component especially during EHE as mentioned above by taxico.

I just found out that the roof in my house is false or made of gypsum board, at this point this pretty much blows all the plans i had for a ceiling fan in the bedroom out of the water. :(

I have a stand fan but I don't like the noise it makes :( i might go and get that vertical fan with fins instead.
