What length down rod do I need to buy for this

I feel like I should be able to figure this out on my own, but I'm getting confused and I'm worried I'm going to mess it up, have an electrician come out and then have the wrong down rod.
I have 10' tall ceilings, but I have exposed duct work that drops down 19-20" from the ceiling. The edges of the blades will extend past the duct work, so the fan needs to be lowered with a down rod so that it safely clears the ducts.
However, I'm having issues figuring out exactly what I need. I think it would look better if it was as high as possible. I'm less worried about air flow because I'll mostly be using it for the light and I have a relatively small place anyway. Will 4" of clearance (by getting the 24" down rod) be enough?
