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:
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.





19. General Question #9473 Posted: 4/4/2014 8:12:01 AM | View page where question was posted

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.





26. General Question #9462 Posted: 3/7/2014 12:28:41 PM | View page where question was posted

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.

QUESTION:
Does this fan have a sloped ceiling adaptor available?

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. If the ceiling is angled more than 30 degrees, there is a special ball that you can purchase that will extend the allowed angle up to 52 degrees.

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. Carrera Grande Eco 72"

QUESTION:
Is there a downrod longer than 72" available for the Fanimation Keistone 72 (DC Motor) Ceiling Fan?

ANSWER:
You can purchase a downrod coupler and join 2 downrods together to create a downrod as long as 12 feet. Click on the orange button for Accessories beneath the fan picture on the main product detail page to add the downrod coupler. Then click on the Downrods button to add a downrod. You can then change the quantity to 2 once you add the configuration to the shopping cart. Or just give us a call during normal business hours and we will make sure you get everything you need.
