QUESTION:
I am looking at the Emerson Carrera Grande Eco 72 (DC Motor) Ceiling Fan Model CF788VNB, however regarding fan blades for an outdoor-damp location, would these blades tend to warp over a few years in a humid environment? I have had many outdoor fans, and they almost all end up with warped blades over time. Do you offer blades that would be less prone to warping, or are these already "resistant"? thanks!

ANSWER:
When you click on the orange button for blades, look for blades that say "(Outdoor Damp)". Emerson specially makes the damp rated blades from solid hardwood (instead of cheap plywood) that is treated to resist cracking and warping from being outside. They will hold up much better than what you have experienced and are in fact rated for use in outdoor damp locations by the manufacturer.

QUESTION:
I just bought a house with a Halsey ceiling fan and I want to add a light to it. The universal light kit only works sometimes! Where can I find Halsey light kits to fit models HC-HP and HG models?

ANSWER:
I am sorry to report that Halsey went out of business several years ago, so finding parts for them is difficult. It is not a brand that we ever sold, so we would not have any fixtures on hand that were made by them. If you email me some pictures of your fan, I may be able to determine what types of universal fixtures will fit...if any. Email pictures to: gregt@hansenwholesale.com

QUESTION:
The location I am considering was wired only for a light and no fan (1 wire pair). How do I tell which lights are compatible and which are not?

ANSWER:
Almost all of our ceiling fans with lights do not require a second hot wire, so they will work with a 1 wire pair...there are very few exceptions. If you give us a call, we will be happy to help you choose the best fan for your needs and make sure you can install it.

QUESTION:
How far down from the ceiling does the Seaside fan hang when installed with the flushmount option?

ANSWER:
Thanks for your question: The Seaside fan from Savoy House comes with an 8" downrod as well as a flush mount adapter. The bottom of the fan cage hangs 16.3" from the ceiling when installed with the 8" downrod. Although the manufacturer does not specify the hanging distance with the flush mount option, after reviewing the installation instructions I have estimated that the flush mount option will reduce the distance by at least 6" to be safe...if not a bit more. That would put the bottom of the fan at about 10" from the ceiling.

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.





9. General Question #9499 Posted: 7/2/2014 11:30:33 PM | View page where question was posted

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:
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:
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:
will a 1994 wall for a intelertouch and rods work with a new fan ?

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:
We have a small office, 9 feet by 11 feet. We just put in a wall to wall, floor to ceiling built in cabinet. The ceiling fan, which centered in the center of the ceiling, is not now. It is closer to the built in and it seems more air is being pushed toward the built in. Is this the effect of the built in? Can anything be done to push more air to the desk, which is opposite the built in?

ANSWER:
The built in cabinet is likely impeding the natural airflow pattern of the fan, which can cause it to move less air. Several options: 1) Relocate the fan closer to the desk. 2) Buy a larger fan. 3) Buy a more powerful fan of the same size. The amount of airflow a fan is capable of producing is measured in CFM (Cubic Feet of Airflow per Minute). You will find it easy to compare the CFM between all of the fans on our site (where CFM is available). Give us a call and we will be happy to go over these options in more detail. If you can email me some pictures of your room, I will be happy to take a look and see if there is anything else I can suggest. Email pictures to: gregt@hansenwholesale.com

QUESTION:
Is it possible to use dimmable CFL bulgs in Midway Eco and will remote allow them to dim?

ANSWER:
Unfortunately the Emerson Midway Eco remote does not have a dimming function, so although you could install dimmable CFL bulbs, you would not be able to dim them. As I have mentioned previously, the lack of dimming capability is the only complaint we get about this fan...and rightfully so. This is a problem for virtually ALL ceiling fans with lights from ALL brands that meet Energy Star requirements. If you really need dimming capability and are looking for a ceiling fan that has a DC motor, I would suggest you consider the Casablanca DC Stealth. The DC Stealth does not meet Energy Star requirements because it incorporates a 100 watt halogen bulb, but it does have a super efficient DC motor. Casablanca chose to go that way in order to meet the needs of people looking for a high quality contemporary style ceiling fan with a super efficient DC motor and a dimmable light. Here is a link to the: Casablanca DC Stealth Model 59105 in White.

QUESTION:
Model CF787ORB comes with a 4 speed wall control. How does it reverse the fan blades direction ? It is located at 20feet off the ground

ANSWER:
The Emerson Carrera Grande has a manual reverse switch on the motor housing. Because your ceiling is so high, reversing the fan manually is obviously not going to happen. Emerson makes a special remote control transmitter and receiver that is capable of reversing the fan. This remote can be installed as a wall control and also be used as a hand held remote. Here is a link to the components: SR650-RC212. They also have another remote only option with a receiver that cannot be used as a wall control. Here is a link to that system: SR600-RC212. Although the receiver is not shown in the picture, it is included in the model that we are selling.

Keep in mind that in order for these to work, you must install the receiver unit in the canopy of the fan when you install the fan. If you do not install it then, you will have to get up there to do it later...so be sure to purchase these components along with your fan. Also, rather than using the links above to purchase these parts, you can simply add them to your original fan purchase by clicking on the orange button labeled "Controls" below the picture of the fan on the main product details page...or just give us a call and we will make sure you get everything you need.

QUESTION:
I am looking for an Emerson crystal LX ceiling fan CF875SPB that I understand has been discontinued. Can you find one for me?

ANSWER:
It has been about 10 years since Emerson made that fan...so we ran out of stock many years ago. I am pretty confident that you will not find any dealers that have one. It was a nice looking fan with the illuminated crystal motor housing, but compared to fans made today, it did not move enough air (the motor was too small in order to accommodate the lights that lit up the crystal). Here is a link to view all of the flushmount/hugger ceiling fans that we currently have available: Flushmount Ceiling Fans.

QUESTION:
How do I reverse my Minka Aire Model F803-TL ceiling fan without the wireless remote. The remote unit has begun to fail and will not power up. I have switch the wireless unit to a regular wall mounted fan control. However, I need to change the direction of the blade spin and I do not see a direction switch on the fan itself. How do I rectify this issue. Many thanls

ANSWER:
There is no method of reversing the Minka Aire Artemis ceiling fan other than with the remote control or wall control that was/is made for the fan. Generic remotes do not have a compatible reverse function and there is no reverse switch on the fan motor housing. Please contact Minka Aire customer support so they can determine the correct replacement parts (remote transmitter and receiver) for your fan since they have changed them over the years. Once you have determined the part numbers you need, you can call us to order them. Here is a link to their contact info: Minka Aire Customer Support.

QUESTION:
room is 18 ft x 28 ft. with a 14 foot vaulted ceiling. What size fan do I buy? How low from the vaulted ceiling does the fan hang? My pendant lights are black...can I use a black fan?

ANSWER:
In a room this size of yours, we would most likely recommend 2 fans. Black is certainly a great option if it matches other decorative items in your room. However, there are very few black fans available today, so you may want to consider other finish options in order to dramatically expand your choices. Ultimately, the fan we recommend will be based on many factors including: style, quality, airflow and price range. For that reason, it is best to call and talk to one of our ceiling fan experts in order for us to quickly narrow down your choices over the phone.

QUESTION:
I have a commercial space of 2000 total square feet, but only about 1200 contiguous that needs air circulation for both heat and AC. Ceilings are 12 feet high. I'm thinking 2 fans because the only duct is basically centrally located and kicks air through 3 vents on either side and is about 12 inches from the ceiling. Would you recommend a "commercial" heat fan?! I need a recommendation and would definitely prefer something that is going to be VERY quiet, but also move the air.

ANSWER:
Commercial heat fans are typically not designed for quiet operation, so I would probably make a different recommendation for a sound sensitive area. There are so many options to choose from that it is best if you call and talk to one of our ceiling fan experts to go over them with you on the phone. Please call us at: 1-800-201-1193.

ANSWER:
The mounting hardware that comes with the Fanimation Jennix ceiling fan will hang on a ceiling angled up to 30 degrees without the need for any additional hardware.

QUESTION:
We have a living room with walls that are about 11 feet high with a vaulted ceiling the peak of which is 16 feet above the floor. What height above the floor should the ceiling fan be mounted. We will be using it in the summer for cooling as well as in the winter to bring the warm air down. We havent decided on the fan diameter yet, probably in the 60-72" range. We will most likely be buying an Emererson Eco fan. Thanks.

ANSWER:
I would recommend using a 6 foot downrod to bring the fan down a little less than 10 feet from the floor. A 72" Emerson Eco fan should be great for this application if the room is around 15 feet x 15 feet or more. If it is really large, over 20 feet...you should consider using 2 60" fans with 6 foot poles. Below is a link back to the Carrera Grande Eco in Antique Pewter with 72" blades. You can actually select any of the Carrera Grande Eco fans regardless of size and then change the blades that are pictured to any of the 72" blades by clicking on the orange Blades button, so you are not limited to just the brushed nickel finish to create a 72" fan.

The Fanimation Levon ceiling fan will hang from a vaulted ceiling angled up to 30 degrees using the standard 6" downrod and mounting hardware that is included with the fan. Additional length downrods for ceilings over 9 feet high can be found by clicking on the orange button labeled Downrods, located just beneath the main picture of the fan on the product details page. Ceilings angled more than 30 degrees up to 45 degrees require the optional Angled Ceiling Adapter Model: FA-SCB1-52, which can found by clicking on the orange Accessories button.

QUESTION:
Are your wet rated ceiling fans made with only either plastic or stainless steel interior parts? Could you recommend some which have this?

ANSWER:
All outdoor wet rated ceiling fans use special components that are stainless steel or plastic...as this is a requirement in order to be UL listed for use outdoors. With that said, I cannot say that any or all of them use only stainless steel and plastic for ALL components. If corrosion is your concern, I must steer in you in the direction of the Minka Aire Concept I 58" Wet rated ceiling fan which is the first and ONLY ceiling fan where the actual motor housing is made of marine grade stainless steel. This is a new fan that will become available in March of 2014. We are very excited about this great new stainless steel outdoor fan. Each of the finishes the fan is available in are actually applied over stainless steel, so even the white and oil rubbed bronze models are stainless. Here is a link: Minka Are Stainless Steel Concept I 58" Wet Rated Ceiling Fan.

QUESTION:
I want to connect a Casablanca fan that takes a threaded down rod to an existing down rod that is .75" OD and is not threaded. Do you carry a coupler or adaptor that will enable me to accomplish this? Thank you.

ANSWER:
There is no coupler made to connect a Casablanca ceiling fan to a non-Casablanca downrod. Casablanca does not allow this because they use their own proprietary mounting system that they have tested for safety. Using any other mounting system would void the warranty and could create an unsafe condition, particularly if the previous fan and downrod was not rated for the same weight as the Casablanca fan. You will find this the same with most of the higher quality brands.

QUESTION:
i have a 25 ft ceiling in my living room and I need a fan and a downrod that would make sense. Any ideas?

ANSWER:
High ceilings such as yours require a powerful ceiling fan with an extra long downrod.

QUESTION:
I'm looking for a three flush mount, modern style ceiling fans that emit bright light (prefer LED), are rated at least 6000 CFM. I prefer white, but may consider other modern looking styles. My most important feature is the brightness, so please recommend me a few choice to choose from. Thanks

ANSWER:
Your request has been duly noted and one of our ceiling fan experts will contact you to discuss your options. For those reading this with a shared interest, please note that there are currently very few hugger ceiling fans on the market that are incorporating LED lights. The additional limitation of 6000 CFM minimum will narrow the choice down to zero. So in other words, there are currently no hugger fans that meet the stated requirements. However, it is possible that hugger fans are not necessary for this application. If the ceiling is at least 8 feet high, then a standard mount fan will work...and there may even be such a fan that has a close to ceiling adapter which will make it closer to a hugger fan. By considering these options, you will find we have several high performance modern style ceiling fans with LED lighting that produce over 6000 CFM. Use this link to view Ceiling Fans with LED Lights and you will see they are already sorted by quality and CFM performance, so finding suitable fans will be quick and easy. For other options, please call and talk to one of our Ceiling Fan Experts at: 1-800-201-1193 or email your request to: gregt@hansenwholesale.com

QUESTION:
I need a replacement globe for a ceiling fan but don't know the type of fan. Is there one that will fit any fan?

ANSWER:
There are literally thousands of different types of ceiling fan globes. Some fans have globes that are made specifically for that fan while others use what are called universal light fitters that accommodate standardized globes. In order to determine what type of globe you need, please email pictures of your fan along with the brand and model number, which can be found on the top of the fan body. Email this info to: gregt@hansenwholesale.com and I will see if I can help you.

QUESTION:
light blinks at a steady pace when turned in. bulbs o.k.,current appears to be coming through, fan operates fine Help?

ANSWER:
Due to federal regulations, ceiling fan lights are now required to have some type of limiting device that does not allow you to use more than 190 watts total for most ceiling fan light fixtures. It is often these devices on the verge of failure that causes the lights to flicker. Ceiling fan manufacturers are in the process of trying to find better devices to meet this requirement, but unfortunately problems still exist. I suggest you contact Hunter Fan Company directly to resolve your issue. Click here for the contact info page at the Hunter Fan Company website.

QUESTION:
Do you make larger blades for my original 42" fans? We have four original fans and would like to increase the blades to 52"

ANSWER:
The 42" Hunter Original ceiling fans have a small motor that is not designed to accommodate larger blades, so they are not available. The motor inside the 42" Hunter Original is much smaller than the motor used inside the 52" Hunter Original fans and cannot handle the torque that the larger blades require. Larger blades add additional load on the motor causing it to overheat and operate at a lower RPM, which would result in less efficiency and airflow, and would eventually burn out the motor. If you really need larger blades, I suggest you consider replacing your fans with 52" Hunter Original fans, which have a substantially more powerful motor that is capable of moving about twice as much air as the 42" fans. You can find them on our site here: < a href="/ceilingfans/hunter/model.asp?ProdNo=23856" title="Hunter Original Fans">

QUESTION:
Happy New Year! We are looking to improve lighting and circulation in a large open living space with an asymmetric cathedral ceiling. We interested in the Emerson Carrera Eco in pewter and wondered what you recommend for blade size and the lighting option that would provide the most light. With new restrictions on the wattage for lighting sold with a ceiling fan, in order to maximize is it better to purchase a universal lighting kit? Are ones available that will match the finish?

ANSWER:
The Emerson Carrera Eco is an excellent choice for large rooms. If the room is more than 15 x 15 I would use the 72" blades. If it is more than 15 x 20 I would use two 60" fans. Choose the 4-light fixture model F450 (F450AP if you choose the AP finish fan). It comes with 4-13 watt medium base CFL bulbs but you can replace them with 60 watt incandescent bulbs (if you can find them) to get maximum light, or higher wattage CFLs. This will give you the most light you can get from a ceiling fan under the new standards. Here is a link back to the fan with the blades you already selected and the F450AB fixture that I recommend. You will need to click on the orange "Glass" button to choose the glass shades for the fixture: 72" Emerson Carrera Grande Eco with 4-lights

ANSWER:
There is no particular base for the LED light fixture...it is an LED array that is proprietary to the fan. This is how most ceiling fans and lighting fixtures with LED lights are being manufactured. The actual lumins has not yet been published by the manufacturer. I recently spoke to one of the executives at Minka Aire about this awesome new fan, he said it is equivalent to 120 watts of incandescent light.

QUESTION:
Can I replace 44 inch blades for my minka concept II hugger ceiling fan with 52 inch blades, or do I need to buy a whole new fan?

ANSWER:
The larger blades included with the 52" Concept ceiling fans will not work with the 44" version. The motor inside the 44" fan is smaller and is not designed to handle the torque of the larger blades, so it will eventually burn out the motor if the larger blades were used. Also, the 44" fan motor would not be able to reach optimal RPM with 52" blades and would most likely move less air than with the 44" blades. Bottom line is, if you need the fan to be larger you will need to replace the entire fan.

QUESTION:
If purchase fan, is it necessary to buy either RCS212 or WCS212 controls? There is only one switch on the wall to control fan. Without these optional extra controls, can I operate the light and fan separately? Thanks.

ANSWER:
The Minka Aire Concept fans come with a hand held remote control for operating the ceiling fan. Your switch on the wall provides power to the fan. So in order for the remote to work the switch simply needs to be in the on position. You do not need to purchase any additional controls to operate the fan as it comes. If you wish to operate the fan from your existing wall switch, you would purchase the WCS212 wall control which converts it into a wall operated remote with the same functions as the hand held remote that comes with the fan. You would not need any extra wiring for the WCS212 to work. With the wall control installed, you can use both the included RCS212 remote control and the WCS212 wall control to operate the fan.

QUESTION:
The comments list an optional near flush adapter. My ceiling is 104 inches. Please advise.

ANSWER:
The flush mount adapter is only recommended for ceilings that are lower than 8 feet. I would not suggest using it on your ceiling since it is over 8 feet high. When you use the flush mount adapter on any ceiling fan, it reduces the airflow of the fan because the blades get closer to the ceiling and the air cannot flow around them as freely as it does with a standard installation. Fans perform best when the blades are at least 12" from the ceiling.

QUESTION:
My husband just purchased a Turn of the Century fan- Karlyn, model 355-0463. It is already installed but is too small and provides very little noticeable airflow. Can longer blades be used on this model?

ANSWER:
Unfortunately you cannot buy larger blades for the fan that you own. Even if you could, it would not move more air, it would likely move less and eventually burn out due to the overloaded stress larger blades put on the motor. The Turn of the Century fans are very low end ceiling fans and have small motors in them that simply cannot perform. Fans like this are sold at places like Menards where people expect to find low prices and are not aware of the huge differences there are between various brands and models of ceiling fans.

Although we do not sell or recommend Turn of the Century fans, I took a moment to look at the specifications for the fan you and it is only designed to produce a maximum of 2169 CFM of airflow (Cubic Feet per Minute). This is extremely low when it comes to ceiling fans where the average airflow is closer to 5,000 CFM, and what I consider a good fan, will produce more than 6,000 CFM. Fans that produce higher airflow have much larger more powerful motors...and yes, probably larger blade spans.

I would suggest you spend some time looking through our website because our first and foremost concern is that our customers are aware of the amount of airflow each of the fans we sell can be expected to produce. If you start looking through our fan search results, you cannot miss the performance graphs that tell you exactly what you can expect from each fan. If you click on one of the graphs, you can read details about what to look for in a ceiling fan and how to compare them.

The 2169 CFM that your fan produces is ridiculous and I always feel for those who shop at home centers and unknowingly end up with a fan that does not move air.

QUESTION:
I am wondering if you still carry a Hunter Model # 21543 ceiling fan. Looking for a high CFM, white, 52" ceiling fan with a 4 light kit that will accept 60 watt bulbs. Please email me with info. Thanks, Lorna Bunting

ANSWER:
Hunter no longer manufactures model 21543 and the fan has not been available for quite some time. I highly recommend you consider the Casablanca Panama ceiling fan. The Panama is one of the best performing high quality ceiling fans ever made and has been the industry standard for nearly 20 years. The Panama is a customizable fan that does not come with blades or lights, so you choose them separately to design the fan to fit your needs. The 4-light fixture options are one of the few that still come with standard medium base sockets that can accept 60 incandescent bulbs, although they ship with CFLs. Most 4-light fixtures from other brands either use candelabra base bulbs or plug-in type CFLs (to meet government regulations).

Casablanca recently introduced a special tool on their website that allows you to customize your fan and see how it looks before you buy it. Here is a link to that tool. Any of the fans you see on that site will be equivalent to the Panama, which is one of the choices. When you are finished building your fan, click on the checkout button and it will put your selected options into our shopping cart where you can finalize your purchase. We also have a promotion that will give you a FREE Casablanca Remote Control worth $80.00 when you buy any of the Custom Casablanca fans.

Custom Casablanca Ceiling Fans

Here is a link to view the Casablanca Panama directly on our website where you can also select components individually but you cannot see how the completed fan will look, just the individual components:

Casablanca Panama.

BTW: The Hunter Studio Series ceiling fans are a lower end Hunter fan and they move only about half as much air as the Casablanca Panama...although the price is about half that of the Panama as well.

QUESTION:
what is a three wire installation? I want to replace a ceiling light in my bathroom with a fan because I cannot install an exhaust venting one. Would this work? Or, do you have other suggestions?

ANSWER:
A 3 wire control requires 2 hot wires...meaning 2 separate power sources. It would be the same wiring required to have 2 separate switches in a wall. Unless the location for your fan was pre-wired in this manner (which is rarely the case), you will have to hire an electrician to run an additional hot wire to the fan. The best option is to purchase the wall control model WCS223 because it only requires a single hot wire, which is what most people already have.

The information we had on our website was not accurate and the optional WCS223 was not showing on our site. There is also a remote control option RCS223 which will work with the Spacesaver and does not require a wall control at all. If you have an existing light switch that supplies power to the fan you can just leave it in the on position and use the remote control. I have updated our website with this information...and thanks for asking your question since it brought this to my attention.

FYI: When Minka Aire came out with the Spacesaver fan I made it quite clear to their executives that it was a mistake to not simply include the WCS223 or RCS223 control since most people would have to pay an electrician to run an additional wire ( at a cost of anywhere from $150 to $300) to use the cheaper 2 wire control they opted to include. Their response was that they wanted to keep the price of the fan below $200, so they chose to include a much less expensive control. Bad decision in my opinion because the 3 wire control can rarely be used. Otherwise, the Spacesaver is a great little fan and a good value at just under $220.00 once you add the WCS223 control...much better than hiring an electrician to run extra wires!

QUESTION:
I have a ceiling fan that is making noise from the bearings. The warranty card states the motor is guaranteed for 25 years. How do I go about getting another motor.

ANSWER:
In almost all cases, the motor inside a fan is not replaceable in the field, so manufacturers will either replace the entire fan, or require you to send the fan to them for repair...if in fact the warranty claim is valid. If you did not send in your warranty registration within a certain time after purchasing the fan, your warranty may not be valid. You will most likely need to contact the manufacturer directly to file a warranty claim. If you purchased your fan from us we will be happy to help you with your claim. What brand and model of fan is it that you own and where did you purchase it?





66. General Question #9390 Posted: 7/6/2013 1:21:48 AM | View page where question was posted

QUESTION:
I have a question that is I think one of the most important to a prospective buyer and one that brought me to your site. Noise, it is not hard to measure this quality and it seems to me to be a serious omission for such a otherwise very thorough evaluation. Use the same rpm and pitch and record the sound level, or remove the blades and measure just the motor noise level. Both would be a valuable indication of relative noise for each fan. I am looking to purchase the quietest fan for my bedroom.

ANSWER:
Hello Vince, I personally have asked engineers from several of the top quality manufacturers if they have any testing data they can provide for noise levels and none have been willing to share it. Although some do in fact perform noise level tests on certain models as a quality control measure, it is already too expensive for manufacturers to perform the other mandatory tests that the EPA requires of them, so throwing a noise level test in is certainly not something manufacturers are inclined to do.

That being said, noise is an important part of the quality rating system we have developed where every fan on our website has been given a quality rating from 1 to 5. Fans we have rated 5 will run dead quiet because of the engineering of the product; they are precision made with components that are more substantial than lesser quality fans. Smooth quiet performance is the first criteria for any fan on our site that is rated 5. Durability and actual airflow are also major considerations. All of the things that cause noise are addressed by the manufacturers of these fans.

After being in the ceiling fan business for over 25 years, I believe that smooth quiet operation with lots of airflow is what people want most (or expect) from a ceiling fan even though looks is usually what people search for first. For this reason I have designed our website so that all of the search results are sorted by highest quality and then highest airflow (CFM) by default. So our website automatically shows you what you are looking for from the start without you really knowing it; The quietest fans that move the most air.

The bottom line is, look for fans that have a quality rating of 5 and an airflow rating over 6,000 CFM and you will be quite pleased. They are usually found on the first pages of any of our filtered results...if they exist.

ANSWER:
Yes, you can control the lights regardless of whether the fan is on or off.

We have 22 foot ceilings (timber-frame construction). We would like to drop the fan to about 14 foot height, implying an 8 foot extension (or 92 inches). Do you have larger extensions or couplers that allow us to build a larger extension?

ANSWER:
You can combine two 4 foot downrods together to get your 8 foot pole by adding a downrod coupler. The downrod coupler can be found by clicking on the orange "Accessories" button on the main product page for the Emerson Carrera Grande Eco. Also, when configuring your fan, we do not currently have a method of allowing you to select two dowrnods in your initial configuration, so you will need to select a single 4 foot downrod along with the downrod coupler then add that to your cart. Once the items are in your cart you can change the quantities.

QUESTION:
Can the Mona bay ceiling fans be flush mounted to the ceiling?

ANSWER:
The Kona Bay comes with a 2" and 6" downrod. There is no option for a flush mount, although if such an option did exist it would only be about 1" closer to the ceiling than if you use the 2" downrod that comes with the fan. With the 2" downrod the blades are only 10" from the ceiling. Keep in mind that the closer you get the blades to the ceiling the less air the fan will move. Anything less than 12" starts to cause restriction of the airflow around the blades so the fan will suffer in performance.

If it is 8 to 9 feet high, stick with the standard downrod included with the fan for the best airflow performance and easiest installation. I have found that although the 2 1/2" downrod will work, it is a tight squeeze and some customers have complained that they had a difficult time performing the installation...but in the end were successful.

QUESTION:
How do I go about getting these fans replaced under the lifetime warranty. I bought 6 of these fans ( original hunter outdoor ceiling fan ) about 5 years ago for outside use under a huge porch. 3 of them have seized up. You can feel the vibration of the motor but they do not turn. That is why I bought such heavy duty expensive fans. So I would not have to ever replace them. I should be in the system. I bought them from Hansen wholesale.

ANSWER:
Hunter handles all warranty claims directly. You can find their contact info on their website using this link:
http://www.hunterfan.com/Support/Warranties/

FYI: It is quite unlikely that your fans need to be replaced. If your fans are installed in a damp location that is not exposed directly to rain, they should not have frozen up if you have kept them oiled. But you mist in fact oil any Cast Iron Hunter Original fan, or it will eventually freeze up. Do you check the oil every year or have you ever added oil? These fans are built so rugged that more often than not, if they have frozen up from lack of oil you can revive them by adding oil then turning them on and giving them a kick start by turning the blades manually. I have heard of this working many times over the years...and they keep running for many years to come. Try doing that with a car that freezes up for lack of oil. Here is a link to the Owners Manual for Hunter Outdoor Original Ceiling Fans if you need instructions on how to oil them.

The Casablanca wine country rosewood blades are NOT rated for use outdoors. Thanks to your question, I have modified the blade options page to make it more clear which blades are "Indoor Only", "Outdoor Damp" or "Outdoor Wet" rated.

QUESTION:
do all casablanca fans have floating blade mount that keeps fan from wobbling?

ANSWER:
Most Casablanca fans no longer have the floating blade mount (called a rubberized flywheel). Only older designed models that still use the XLP motors. You can find them on our website by searching for the word XLP. Here is a link that performs that exact search: Casablanca Fans with XLP Motors.

You can rest assured that Casablanca fans that do NOT have the XLP motor are also very well balanced since they use precision components and are one of the few manufacturers that actually pays individuals to weigh each blade and sort them into matching sets of the same weight. This is an additional step that requires manual labor and adds to the cost of their fans....another reason they are more expensive. Emerson and Fanimation also do this.

FYI: I personally have always liked the rubber flywheel fans, but the way things are going with the EPA and DOE regulations for ceiling fans, the motors that use this type of flywheel are too powerful and use too much energy for their taste. Casablanca is slowly phasing them out and only keeping them in a few of their legacy models until they are forced to redesign them. None of their new fans introduced this year will have XLP motors. We are currently fighting this legislation and the government just closed comments on it Yesterday. If you are curious, here is a link to the documentation for: 2013 DOE Proposed Regulations for Ceiling Fans & Ceiling Fan Light Kits.

QUESTION:
If the fan motor is DC, then why does the item specification state that it uses 120v electricity? Thanks!

ANSWER:
These are not your typical DC motors. They are highly specialized motors using relatively new technology incorporating an electronic component that converts AC to DC. So they are in fact designed to be used in normal 120V household current and are NOT capable of being wired straight to DC current.

FYI: For those hoping these new DC ceiling fans can be hooked up to a low voltage or DC system run by solar power, I am sorry to report that they cannot. I have asked ceiling fan manufacturers why they are not making a true DC alternative for this purpose and the response is that consumer demand is still too low at this time. I have suggested they make a switch that can allow the use of these fans in both AC and DC systems, but my suggestion has of yet fallen on deaf ears.

QUESTION:
Hello. I'm interested in purchasing Emerson Luxe Eco Ceiling Fan Model CF550WABS. It comes with a wall remote control. I am a renter and I didn't want to put holes in the wall. Is there another remote that works with this fan that you could recommend?

ANSWER:
Add the EM-SR600 remote control transmitter to your fan if you prefer not to use the included wall control. For those who wish to have both a wall control and remote control it will work that way as well. You can add it to your order by clicking on the orange "Controls" button located just beneath the main picture of the fan near the top of the product details page...or just give us a call and we will make sure you get everything you need for your application.

QUESTION:
Please recommend a damp or wet rated outdoor low profile white ceiling fan that moves enough air to reduce bug activity that does not have a light that is white. Thanks.

ANSWER:
I would highly recommend either the Minka Aire Concept II Wet or the Emerson Curva Sky. Both of these come with a built-in light fixture, but they also include a bottom cap that allows you to install the fan without the light. These fans move more air than other low profile fans. Keep in mind that low profile fans cannot move as much air as a fan that hangs from a downrod simply because the blades are too close to the ceiling to allow the same amount of unrestricted airflow a fan that hangs from a downrod is capable of producing. So unless your ceiling is lower than 8 feet, I might have other recommendations for you that will keep bugs away better if you use a downrod. Otherwise, if your ceiling is lower than 8 feet, these 2 fans will do the best job.

QUESTION:
your add states that this fan is a high speed industrial type. I am considering it for my home.These fan controls slow the fan down to a safe speed so it can be used in the home.Is this correct? I do have a vaulted ceiling where I intend to install it if I purchase your product. Please respond. The fan is an Emerson48 heat- HF948BS

ANSWER:
Industrial fans such as the Emerson HF948BS have metal blades and are NOT allowed for use in residential applications regardless of what type of control you have or what height the fan is hung. This is according to national building code standards. For a similar style fan that does not have metal blades and IS rated for use indoors I would recommend the Emerson Loft.





85. General Question #9371 Posted: 1/28/2013 1:45:25 PM | View page where question was posted

QUESTION:
Can an outdoor fan be installed indoors?

ANSWER:
Outdoor ceiling fans can certainly be installed indoors. But indoor fans cannot be installed outdoors. Outdoor fans have features that make them capable of handling more moisture than fans designed for indoors, so they are made to higher standards when it comes to certain components. Outdoor fans are either damp rated or wet rated. Damp rated fans can handle excessive moisture and are used in covered outdoor areas where they are not directly exposed to rain. They are also recommended indoors when installed in bathrooms and laundry rooms where there is a lot of moisture. Wet rated can handle direct exposure to rain, so the motor casings are better sealed than damp rated fans. Both types of outdoor fans use stainless steel screws and other hardware that can handle excess moisture. The wiring is coated differently and made to stricter standards than necessary for indoor applications. So indoor fans run the risk of shorting out or failing prematurely if they are installed outdoors. Conversely, for those who live close to the ocean or in humid climates, we strongly recommended that outdoor fans be used indoors. Bottom line is, outdoor fans are totally appropriate for indoor applications.

QUESTION:
I have already purchased a white Minka Aire Concept II 52 from you and would like to buy another. Please can you tell me the difference between the brushed nickel and polished nickel finishes. It is difficult to tell on the website but is the polished nickel a lighter more reflective finish? I want to place this in the kitchen and try to match as closely as possible to the stainless steel appliances and other light fixtures we have. Thanks. David.

ANSWER:
Brushed nickel is much more like a stainless steel finish since it has a brushed finish. Polished Nickel is a shiny polished chrome finish...much more mirror like. So it sounds to me like brushed nickel is definitely the correct choice for your kitchen.

QUESTION:
I am looking for the best outdoor fans for an oceanside home so salt air and rust are issues. Any metal on any fan will rust as we have seen. Please advise if this is the right fan for our outdoor open porches at our beach house or if another model would be better. Thank you!

ANSWER:
The Monte Carlo Cyclone is an excellent choice for salt air environments since it is rated for wet locations and uses stainless steel components. It does not have any exposed metal parts that will rust like some fans in metallic finishes. For other choices, please read the paragraph on our Outdoor Ceiling Fans page titled "Salt Air Environments:". If you search our site using some of the suggestions listed there you will find similar fans that are equally or better suited for salt air locations. You may also want to give us a call so we can help you find the best ceiling fan for your salt air location. Call: 1-800-201-1193.

QUESTION:
is oil already in 23856

ANSWER:
The Hunter Original ceiling fans do NOT come with the oil already in the oil bath. The oil is in the box in a tube and needs to be added after the fan has been is installed. The way the fan is designed, the oil would spill out if it was put in at the factory. A word of caution...when removing a hunter original fan from the ceiling, always keep it in an upright position, otherwise the oil will in fact spill out and make quite a mess.

QUESTION:
whe4re are these ceiling fans, or fan motors made? mexico? if not, which country, thank you, i prefer not to buy "made in china", whenever possible.

ANSWER:
Virtually ALL ceiling fans are made in China...including the Emerson fans and motors. I understand your desire to NOT purchase products made in China, I have the same concern. Unfortunately, there are simply no good choices for fans that are not made in China, with a few exceptions found in the above below. Although I am fairly certain that quality is not your only concern or reason for not wanting to buy a fan that is made in China, I can assure you that the Emerson Carrera Grande ceiling fans are top of the line and built to last a lifetime with superb quiet performance and maximum airflow. They are among the best ceiling fans on the market today.

For more info about this please refer to this page on our site that discusses: Where Are Ceiling Fans Made?.

QUESTION:
Can I change the halogen to CFL bulb? Enough room? I may need an adapter.

ANSWER:
You cannot change the halogen bulb to a CFL bulb, there is not enough room nor was it designed for use with CFL bulbs. The reason Casablanca uses a halogen bulb instead of a fluorescent bulb is that the halogen is dimmable. The DC Stealth competes directly with the Emerson Midway Eco, which is currently the top selling DC ceiling fan on the market. The Emerson Midway Eco uses a Fluorescent bulb which is NOT dimmable. So for consumers who really want the ability to dim the lights, they are more likely to purchase the Stealth. So if you prefer to have a fluorescent light, you may want to consider the Emerson Midway Eco. Here is a link to it on our site: Emerson Midway Eco

QUESTION:
Can you install a HUGGER CEILING FAN to a slightly uneven ceiling?

ANSWER:
If you mean slightly angled or sloped then the answer is no. hugger ceiling fans are designed to be installed on flat ceilings only. If this is the case, you will need a fan that has a short downrod with a ball in socket type of canopy. If your ceiling is 8 feet high, this should not be a problem. If the ceiling is lower than 8 feet, then you may not be able to install a fan. If you mean that the ceiling is rough or heavily textured (slightly uneven), then it may not be a problem. Can you give me more details about the ceiling? Email me some pictures? How high is your ceiling? If so, email your pictures to: gregt@hansenwholesale.com

QUESTION:
New construction house. Master bed room has cathedral type ceiling - but sides come to a 3.5 inch middle (not a beam width about size of 2 x 4). Fan box is in middle. I am installing a Hunter Fan but fan canopy hits ceiling side - has gap. I cannot find canopy to fit . What can be done to make this look right?

ANSWER:
Sounds like you have 3 options.

  1. Either build out a wider flat space in the ceiling by cutting in a piece of wood (or drywall).
  2. Cut into the ceiling to make the canopy fit.
  3. Find a different ceiling fan with a smaller canopy (although I am not aware of any that are 3.5").
If you can email me a picture of the area where the junction box is located I might have some other input. Email your picture to: gregt@hansenwholesale.com

QUESTION:
I purchased a house recently that has beautiful fan light fixtures. The manufacturer's name is not on the product. I need a frosted glass replacement bowl with a 10" neck. The bowl extends beyond the neck and the neck clicks into place with a short twist. Can you help?

ANSWER:
Have you looked on the top of the fan motor? There is almost always a label on there that has the manufacturer and model number. If it is not there, then it certainly is not any major brand and you will not be able to find any replacement parts for it.

Glass globes like the one you have described usually are designed for specific fans or fan lights, so there are no universal replacement globes. This means you most likely must have the brand and model number in order to see if there is a replacement available.

FYI: Most fans sold at home centers and department stores are mass produced in China and imported directly by the mass merchant. They do not typically import replacement parts like fan globes, so if you purchased it from a home center odds are you are out of luck and you will have to replace the entire ceiling fan. It is also possible that you may be able to replace the entire light kit. If the fan was designed to accept universal light fixtures, this is a possibility. If the light fixture is built into the bottom of the fan and cannot be removed, then this is not an option.

If you can email me some pictures of your fan I may be able to identify it or at least give you some further advice. Email pictures to: gregt@hansenwholesale.com

QUESTION:
Will the Emerson Loft fan having only 3 blades be louder than a fan with 4 or 5 blades. I need two fans in a large covered outdoor kitchen, living area. My husband is worried about the fans being loud. Thanks.

ANSWER:
The amount of noise a fan produces is more related to the quality of the product than the amount of blades. However, in answer to your question, fans with 3 blades do make "slightly" more air noise than fans with 4 or 5 blades. But the difference is so minimal it should not make any difference in your buying decision. A superb quality 3 blade fan like the Emerson Loft will still be far quieter than a poorly designed 5 blade fan.

In most cases where you have a fan with 3 blades there is no exact equivalent model that has 4 or 5 blades, so you will never be able to put them side by side to actually perform a test.

Bottom line is, the Emerson Loft is a great choice. It is one of our best selling ceiling fans and we have yet to have any complaints about noise. It will run smooth and quiet for a lifetime.

QUESTION:
I know you can not use 52 inch blades on a 44 inch fan, but can you do the opposite? Our 52 inch fan blades are just a bit too long for the space we have the fan mounted in. If so, do you sell44 inch replacement blades? Thank you!

ANSWER:
Installing smaller blades on a fan that is designed for larger blades will produce less drag on the motor, which causes it to operate at a higher RPM. In many cases, RPM will be higher than the motor was designed to handle, and it may also operate at an RPM that is considered unsafe by UL standards. So there are very few cases where you can put smaller blades on a larger fan. The cases where this would be appropriate are specific to certain models by certain brands. In most cases, smaller blades are not even available to fit the brackets for a fan, so it is a mute point since you cannot even find smaller blades that will fit.

If you are referring to the Minka Aire Concept II F518-BN where you posted your question, the answer is no, you should not use smaller blades on this fan because they will spin too fans and most likely overheat the motor. You will notice that the 44" version of the fan has a smaller motor so that the RPMs are controlled.

If you own a different model and can tell me the brand and model number of the fan you own I may be able to offer more insight.
