What size Ceiling Fan for this room?
I've tried searching in this forum and online, results seem to be so varied, it's difficult to figure out which size fan would work.

This is for a family room that is 21x15. There is also a catherdal ceiling that's sloped about 28 degrees.

I found a ceiling fan that I liked, comes in 56" and 68". Which fan would be a better fit for this room? I'm worried that the 68" is going to over power the room but will the 56" be too underpowered for the room?

Different sites say I need a a 65+ fan to cool a 315 sq ft room, others say a 56" would be fine. Can anyone out there help? These fans are pretty expensive, I want to try and purchase the right one.

I'm also trying to figure out what size fan for a 12x12 room, 44" or 52"?
