If I replace my existing ceiling fan in our great room, are the down rods universally sized, or do I need to purchase a new down rod to go with the new ceiling fan? (The ceiling fan came with our home, so I don't know the length of the down rod or the manufacturer of the ceiling fan since it is in the great room with a cathedral ceiling.)

There are a couple different standard sizes - check on line for the specs for the new one and measure the dia of the old one to compare. That's as good a it gets. I keep a file of everything in the house, yard, tools etc. Just changed oil in five pieces of equipment - five kinds of oil.

Unfortunately, it is up at the top of our cathedral ceiling so I don't know the specs - it came with the house. :( Thanks for your help though.
