#9503 Posted: 7/6/2014 9:23:16 AM | View page where question was posted

QUESTION:
I want to purchase the 36" Down rod DR536-CT (Cattera Bronze finish) $25.13 for the Santa Lucia Ceiling Fan I recently purchased from you. However, when I try to select it the website automatically adds the fan too. Please help

ANSWER:
Sorry you are having trouble ordering a downrod. Here is what you can do: Simply delete the fan from your shopping cart to order just the downrod or use this link to add the downrod to your cart by itself: Minka Aire DR536-CT Downrod.

QUESTION:
Do you happen to carry Hunter fan light fixtures that have a triangle base. These are not held in by screws but by a clip system. Thank you, John

ANSWER:
I am sorry to report that we do not have any of the Hunter light fixtures you are looking for. Hunter only made the triangular fixtures for a short period of time and they discontinued them several years ago (too many problems). It is unlikely that you will be able to locate one anywhere. If you can email me some pictures of your fan along with the model number (located on a label on top of the fan housing), I may be able to come up with an alternative that will fit. Email your pictures to: gregt@hansenwholesale.com

QUESTION:
How powerful is the fan? It will be used in an upstairs room that gets quite warm? Thank you

ANSWER:
Regarding the Emerson Carrera Grande Eco, it is one of the most powerful and efficient fans we sell. The Emerson ECO fans are some of our most highly recommended fans overall. You will certainly be happy with the airflow compared to fans of lesser caliber. Here is a link where you can Read More Aabout the Emerson Eco Fans.

QUESTION:
Hello, First off, I love all the consumer information Hansen Wholesale provides. I'd love a clarification on something. You say that hugger fans don't work as well as regular ceiling fans. This makes total sense. However, why would the Modern Fan Velo Hugger be rated at the same 6650 CFM and 5.54 MPH wind speed as the regular Velo? (Is it because the blades are installed as low as possible on the hugger fan, thus negating the height benefits?)

ANSWER:
You are exactly correct. When installed with a standard downrod, the regular Velo hangs down the same distance as the Velo Hugger, so the airflow is the same.

QUESTION:
Hello! Per the information on the site, the new DC motors, the Emerson K55XL, and other "induction" type motors are considered best quality. If that's the case, how do fans with smallish non-special motors (Say, Savoy House Indira, with 153 x 22mm motor) earn a 5 rating?

ANSWER:
There are exceptions. A 5 rating is not just based on the motor inside the fan, but the overall consideration of the quality of the components and performance. Most 153mm motors are only 12mm to 15mm tall and tend to be overworked. The motor used in the Indra is 22mm tall, which is very unusual. This is a special motor that Savoy House had designed for this fan and the performance and quality of the motor are excellent. The 3-blade Indra produces a whopping 8517 CFM and runs very smooth and quiet. The entire fan was designed to produce maximum airflow while reducing noise. The blades have a very special aerodynamic design and the fan runs perfectly quiet. When I saw this fan introduced at the lighting show in Dallas, I was very impressed. Overall, one of the best fans I have rated in years. A DC motor would have been nice...but was not necessary to earn a 5 in my book.

Here is a link to the Savoy House Indra.

QUESTION:
Bought 2 ermerson carrera Grande fans from you. Love the fans, not the lights. Will other manufacturers light kits fit and will they match the "venetian Bronze" finish?

ANSWER:
Glad to hear you like the Emerson Carrera Grande ceilling fans, but a little sad you do not like the light fixture options...yet I am sure we can help you out here. Although other brands of light fixtures may fit on the fan, we never recommend using a different brand light kit for the following reasons: 1) It will void your Emerson lifetime motor warranty; 2) Other brands do not always fit, so you may not know until after you try; 3) The Venetian Bronze finish cannot be matched by any other brand since it is an exclusive finish formulated by Emerson. If you give us a call at 1-800-201-1193, we can discuss your options. There are in fact more options than those shown on our website and we can most likely help you find one that you really like.

#9496 Posted: 6/19/2014 10:09:09 AM | View page where question was posted

QUESTION:
Hi, I have 4 rooms I'm thinking of installing fans. One is 10x14, 2 are 13x14, and a fourth is 23x15. For the first 3 I was considering Minka Aire F513. For the largest room I was thinking about Minka Aire MF-689. Will these be adequate? Thanks, Tom Kelley

ANSWER:
The Minka Aire F513 New Era fans will be great for the 3 smaller rooms. For the larger room, a single ceiling fan will not be adequate...you should install 2 fans. If you install 2 fans, then the F689 Kola-XL 60" fans would be a great choice. If you can only install a single fan, then I would recommend an even larger fan (up to 84") such as the Fanimation Odyn. Here are links to those resources: Large Ceiling Fans or The Fanimation Odyn. Please call us at: 1-800-201-1193 and we will be happy to discuss all of your options and help you make an educated decision.

QUESTION:
for a DC fan I must use solar power, I am looking for a very efficient fan around 72 inch for a vaulted living room, I have 3 sky lights, I can use one for solar, if I go this way what is the ball park figure for the solar unit for the fan., and how does it work at night. or should I get a very efficient ac ceiling fan Thank you Rob Tash

ANSWER:
All of the ceiling fans we sell are made to connect to AC current and there are no options to convert them to DC current from solar power. So for high efficiency, we would recommend any of our DC ceiling fans, but connected to AC current. Here is a link to all of our Ceiling Fans with DC Motors. For a super efficient DC fan without a light, I would recommend the Fanimation Keystone. Otherwise, just give us a call and we will be happy to help you choose the best fan for your application.

QUESTION:
The kitchler 58" arkwright fan with plywood blades. Your polished version with poly blades shows that it has plywood blades and a light. Your pewter with plywood blades says it has no blades and that no light is avail? The page also says there is an error with the blades? Does the polished version version listed as poly blades have the plywood blades and the light as listed? Does the pewter version with plywood come with the blades and does it include the light or is there one avail? Prices?

ANSWER:
Sorry for the confusion regarding the Kichler Arkwright fans, we did have some errors which I have now fixed. The bottom line is, the Kichler Arkwright fans come without blades or lights so you can pick and choose whichever combination suites your taste. We named them "Plywood" or "Polycarbonate" only to differentiate between what is shown in the pictures. But you can get any of the motor finishes with any of the blades (size, material or finish) with or without a light. The pictures and model numbers we created are just a few examples of the possible combinations.

QUESTION:
Will remote automatically work with this fan or will I have to do any rewiring? The ceiling fan I have is worried directly and not to a wall switch.

ANSWER:
This remote is only designed to work with specific Casablanca ceiling fans, so the answer depends on the fan that you already have. The receiver wires into the canopy at the ceiling. No extra wiring is necessary to install the receiver aside from connecting it to the existing ceiling wiring and to the fan wiring. Please contact us to discuss your particular fan model.

QUESTION:
can i use the b65dm dark mahogony bentwood blades with the CF 2000ORB housing and motor. It would require ORB connections from blade to motor.

ANSWER:
No, these blades will only fit the Emerson Maui Bay ceiling fan blade holders. They are not made to work with any other model or brand. Not only because they will not fit, but the fan motor must be designed to handle the additional torque that larger blades like this create. Most blades are not interchangeable between models or brands.

QUESTION:
Is the Emerson fan , EMCF4801SW quiet (it is for a bedroom)

ANSWER:
Yes, the Emerson Premium Select fans are among the quietest fans being made today. This fan features the super quiet Emerson K55 motor, which has been the standard for powerful quiet operation for over 20 years now. The motor is unlike other fan motors because the motor is stationary and has a center drive shaft that spins with a rubberized noise dampening flywheel to which the blades are attached. Typical fan motors are the opposite and have a stationary rod running down the middle and entire motor spins around the shaft with the blades are attached directly to the motor rather than to a flywheel.

QUESTION:
Does all of your support and replacement guarantees that apply Minka fans apply as well if purchased from you through Amazon?

ANSWER:
Unfortunately they do not apply to orders placed on Amazon due to the high cost of selling through their marketplace. You must order directly from us in order to get all of the guarantees that we offer. Even more, if you purchase through Amazon, they do not allow us to contact you directly if there are any issues that come up. All communication must go through Amazon. For the best overall service and experience, we recommend you make your purchase directly from us.

QUESTION:
I have a Concept 2 44", Can I replace the 44" with 52" blades?

ANSWER:
You cannot use the 52" blades on the 44" fan. The 44" fan has a smaller motor that is not powerful enough to handle the larger blades...it will eventually break down. Plus, the fan will move less air because the larger blades put too much drag on the motor and it spins slower.

It is a set of 5 blades for the current price of $69, although that price may not be the same at the time others read this message. Keep in mind that these blades will not fit just any fan. They are made specifically for the Fanimation Inlet.

QUESTION:
how big of a fan will I need for a room this big 20 feet wide 30 feet long and 26feet hith

ANSWER:
Your room is too large for any single ceiling fan. I would recommend 2 60" to 72" fans and you will most likely need to purchase two 6 foot long downrods and a downrod coupler for each fan so you can join the downrods together to create 12 foot long downrods. If you can only install a single ceiling fan, I would suggest using an 80" fan. Please call us so we can go over your options and help you select the best fan(s) for your application. Call: 1-800-201-1193. You can also email pictures of your room to gregt@hansenwholesale.com.

QUESTION:

ANSWER:
No, the inteli-touch system is antiquated and not compatible with new Casablanca fans. Casablanca has also changed their mounting hardware and downrods, so the older downrods will not work either.

QUESTION:
On a RH Peterson burner, what is the difference, or pros and cons from a G45A Burner and a G45 Triple T Burner? Is it just the certification or is there a performance difference as well?

ANSWER:
The G45A has a manual safety pilot that is factory installed and tested to meet ANSI approval. The G45 is a match-light burner with no safety pilot. If you purchase a G45 and add a safety pilot it will not be installed and tested at the factory. Otherwise, both burners are identical and both are Triple T. Many cities and states require ANSI approval, so if in doubt, it is best to purchase an ANSI approved burner.

QUESTION:
I have a zero clearance fire place that had the chimney removed when the house was re-roofed. I never intend to burn wood in it again. It never worked very well burning wood. Ventless is an option, but what are my options for a vented log? I would not want to take the vent through the roof. Can it be vented to a side wall? What are the limitations for running vent horizontally (how long)? I live in St. Louis, MO. Firebox can handle a G10 18

ANSWER:
There are no options to vent a previous wood burning fireplace out a side wall, it must be vented through the roof as it was before in order to burn any gas logs, vented or ventless. Please do not burn anything in your fireplace without having he chimney installed as it was before...it will not be safe.
