QUESTION:
Looking for a replacement globe for a fan with UPC # 082392214548. It is approx. 8.5 inches wide (diameter) at the opening, and it threads onto the fan.

ANSWER:
The ceiling fan you are referring to is the Hampton Bay Southwind V. We do not offer support for Hampton bay products since they are sold only by Home Depot. In most cases, they do not offer replacement globes for their fans, so you it is quite possible that you will need to buy an entire new fan. Please keep in mind that we offer a 5 Year FREE Replacement Parts Plan on any ceiling fan you purchase from us, so if you break the glass...we will replace it FREE! This is an exclusive policy that we offer only to our customers.

QUESTION:
hunter ceiling fans where can i find the model or serial number to order light kit?

ANSWER:
There is a label on the top of all Hunter ceiling fan motors that has the model number stamped into it. You can normally view the label by standing on a ladder and tilting the fan until you can see it. If you have a flush mounted Hunter fan, then you will need to remove the fan from the ceiling in order to find the label.

QUESTION:
If we are installing two of the same fans in one room do we need two wall controls or can they each operate independently using one wall control? E.g., can one be on low and the other at a higher speed - controlled by the single wall control?

ANSWER:
You cannot operate 2 fans in one room independently using a single control. If you want one on a different setting that the other, you need separate controls set to different frequencies. Otherwise, both fans will respond to the single control at the same time. Even if you want a single remote to operate both fans, you still need to purchase 2 remote kits in order to get 2 receivers.

QUESTION:
hi i purchased the como fan MF 603ORB with an RC 212 (says it replaces the RC 210) The problem is that the package comes without the wall transmitter and there is no receiver for the RC. Right know the fan only works pulling air. Am i missing something or the package was incomplete? Please help me. I leave in Mexico and paid a lot to import your stuff.

ANSWER:
The Minka Aire Como ceiling fans ship with a wall control and receiver. The remote control that is sold separately does not come with a receiver because the fan already includes one. Both the remote transmitter and wall control have 3 speeds with a reverse button and a full range light dimmer. So you should be able to reverse the fan from the remote control. I do not quite understand what is happening since the fan should not operate without the receiver unit installed. Please let me know if you have all 3 components...wall control, remote control and receiver. Also, when the fan was installed, did someone set the dip switches on the hand held transmitter to match the dip switches on the receiver...this may be the problem. Please get back to me.

QUESTION:
I have a ceiling fan and added the light kit. Problem, the ceiling fan is connected to a single dimmer switch. I figured it would just control both the fan and the light at the same time. But, After hooking it up the fan continued to work but no light.I opened up the wall switch with the dimmer and there 2 sets of wires with black white and ground. The white are wired together and the two blacks are plugged in to the back of the switch. Whats the deal?

ANSWER:
Not only must you connect the light fixture and wires for the light fixture to the bottom of the fan, you need to connect the wire that comes out of the top of your fan to the wires in the ceiling. Based on your description, it sounds like you have not connected the light fixture power wire at the ceiling. Usually it is a blue wire, or a wire that is marked for lights. The light wire normally attaches to the black wire in the ceiling and the black wire in the fan...if those colors exist. If you have different colored wires, then you should refer to the installation manual for the fan.

Also, you should not have your ceiling fan connected to a dimmer switch on the wall as this will make it hum and eventually will make cause the motor to burn out. You should purchased a speed control or remote designed specifically for your ceiling fan. A remote control will allow you to operate dim the lights separately from the fan without running extra wires. What brand and model of ceiling fan do you own?

QUESTION:
i am trying to find a cap for a ceiling fan after the light fixture has been removed.

ANSWER:
If you purchased your ceiling fan from a home center, then it is likely that no such part exists. If your fan is one of the ceiling fans you see on our site, then we may be of help. We need to know the brand and model number of your ceiling fan.

QUESTION:
Under your Energy Saving tips..Cooling System you suggest to keep unused rooms closed,which is what I have always done. I recently read several articles that said with central air the interiors door should be left OPEN because pressure builds up in the closed off rooms. It also said the AC has to work much harder if some of the rooms are closed off. Why do you suggest to close off unused room? Thanks!

ANSWER:
Regarding rooms that are unoccupied, it is important to also close the AC vents in order to prevent the AC from cooling the room. We have changed the sentence referring to closing doors in unoccupied rooms to say this. Thanks for pointing this out.

ANSWER:
Unfortunately, Harbor Breeze is not one of our products and we do not recommend or support Harbor Breeze ceiling fans. They are sold only by Lowes...it is their own house brand. If you are experiencing problems with your Harbor Breeze ceiling fan, you need to talk to someone at Lowes. Our recommendation is to replace the fan with one from a better quality brand that you see on our website

QUESTION:
I have a Hunter ceiling fan...summer use. Turned it on recently, on HIGH the blades barely turn after giving them a push. Checked the oil...OK. Pull chain checked and on HIGH. Wall switch seems to work. Any suggestions? Worked great last year.

ANSWER:
Without knowing which Hunter model you are referring to, I cannot give you a concise answer. Since you mentioned that you checked the oil, then I assume you have one of the various Hunter Original ceiling fans. I would suggest that you check the reverse switch to make sure it is pushed all the way in either direction. Sometimes the switch is somewhere in between and the fan will not run. If that does not work, then contact Hunter Customer Service at: 1-888-830-1326 or visit them online here: Hunter Online Customer Care

QUESTION:
Greetings - I need a 36-38" fan, with light, color white. Would like the Monte Carlo Lunar II. I need to be able to control AND reverse the fan direction, fan speed, and light from a wall switch, as it will be mounted in a 3 story high cupola. Does the control that comes with this fan also REVERSE the fan's direction from the wall switch? Please advise at your earliest. Thanks!

ANSWER:
The wall control and remote control that are included with the Montecarlo Lunar ceiling fans both have a reverse function. So yes, you can reverse the fan from the wall switch.

QUESTION:
THE SWITCH BROKE, SO BOUGHT A NEW ONE.. TROUBLE IS I LOST THE COVER AND WIRING SKETCH I MADE.... SO I WHERE CAN I GET A COVER AND SCHEMATIC TO REWIRE....

ANSWER:
There is no generic wiring diagram for ceiling fans, they are all wired in their own way...even though many of them use the same generic pull chain controls...the wires go in different holes. You will need to contact the manufacturer of the fan you own to see if they can help you.

QUESTION:
I need replacement globes for my outdoor ceiling fans. The are 9" glass globes. Do you know where I can find them?

ANSWER:
In order to be of any help finding replacement globes for ceiling fans, we must know the brand and model of the fan you own. If it is one of the brands that we carry, we can most likely get the glass for you. If it is a fan you purchased from a home center, then most likely you cannot find a replacement because most home centers do not import parts for their fans when they bring them over from China.

QUESTION:
i wired Panama 5 intelli touch (LR58835, E67740,cb12112t) alum wires (green to grd plate) black&white to 20 ft. copper wire, to a plug, and plugged into wall, and when i turned on the wall switch, no power. do i need remote? no switches or pull cords on fan. Many thanks,

ANSWER:
The Casablanca Inteli-Touch ceiling fans must be wired to an Inteli-Touch wall control (model W32). You cannot use a cord with a plug. Installing any ceiling fan by running a cord to a plug does not meet building codes. I would suggest that you hire an electrician to run the wires correctly.

QUESTION:
I am replacing my dining room ceiling fan. It has a 48" blade span. I would like brushed nickel/brushed steel etc. finish with dark cherry/mahogany/etc. blades. My dining & living room flow into each other. The furniture in both are a reddish dark wood with brushed nickel accents. My ceilings are vaulted. I like CF955BS but at 54" blade span, I feel it is too big. What is your opinion on the following F601-BSMG, C17G97, CF2400PW, 21627. DR=10x11 LR=15x20 Ceiling to floor 9 ft.6 in.

ANSWER:
The Casablanca Vita (C17G97) and Emerson Athenian are by far the best ceiling fans of the lot and are pretty much comparable to each other They both are among the best quality ceiling fans on the market. The Minka Aire Acero (F601-BSMG) and Hunter Palermo (21627) are a decent fans, better than average, but do not match up to the first two. I personally prefer the Vita...it is stunning in appearance.

QUESTION:
is it not true that when operating AC you want the air to pulled up for better circulation?

ANSWER:
No. You want the air blowing down on you so that you get the wind chill effect. There may be circumstances where this is not true depending on where your air conditioning ducts are. If they are at the floor level, then running a fan in reverse may work better. Just try it both ways and see which works best for you. If you notice no difference in either direction, then you probably need a better ceiling fan that is capable of providing more airflow.

QUESTION:
My dining room and living room are open to one another with 15ft. ceiling. The ceiling is at an 120 degree angle. The dining room measures 14.5 x 12 ft. living room measures 14.9 x 12 ft. Remember there is no wall between them. There is currently a ceiling fan with light over the living room and a chandler over the dining room. Both do not work. I want to replace both with ceiling fans that have lights. We are looking for advice to see if this is a good idea for a lot of air flow.

ANSWER:

QUESTION:
How can I find the manufacturer of my ceiling fan,the model is 4250(99328) UPC#7-59590-99328-4.

ANSWER:
Look for a label on the top of the motor housing. If all you find there is the numbers you sent and no manufacturer name, then you have a generic fan that was imported by some mass merchant. Home centers and department stores buy fans like this from China and have them put in their own packaging with their own brand name so that people cannot shop around and compare prices. This being the case, you would need to know where the fan was purchased to go any further. If you are experiencing problems with such a fan, I would recommend replacing it with a better quality brand that is willing to put their name on their product.

QUESTION:
Hi, I am looking for a high-quality ceiling fan for a home office -- 15 x 10, with an 8-foot ceiling. I have looked at the Mnika IIs (white, 52) and the Minka I (ditto), and I need some assistance, regarding the best option. Thanks.

ANSWER:
The Minka Aire Concept II ceiling fans are flusmounted to the ceiling and recommended for ceilings that are lower than 8 feet. You will get the best performance from a standard mount fan because the blades will be slightly closer to you and you will feel more wind chill effect. Based on this, I would have to say that Minka Aire Concept I Ceiling Fan is the best choice between the two. However, there is not a whole lot of difference in the performance between the 2 models when installed on an 8 foot ceiling, so if you have tall people in the house, or simply want the extra headroom, then the Concept II model will suffice. I would certainly suggest using the standard mounted Concept I for any ceiling that is higher than 8 feet.

QUESTION:
I have a room that has 8 ft ceilings and is 25 x 10. would you recommend putting two smaller fans in this room?

ANSWER:
Two 50" to 54" ceiling fans that have high CFM ratings would be most appropriate. Since ceiling fans cool you off by creating a wind chill effect, the closer you are to the column of air directly beneath the fan, the cooler you will feel. Ultimately, you will have more CFMs of airflow and a wider range of airflow where you will actually feel the wind chill effect, which is what you need to keep you cooler in a room your size.





1232. #8296 Posted: 6/14/2010 1:31:35 PM | View page where question was posted

QUESTION:
what ceiling fan moves the most air

ANSWER:
The default sort for our ceiling fan search results is by highest quality and CFM combined, so the best way to answer this question is simply to view our ceiling fan search page here: Ceiling Fan Search

However, there are other factors to consider when comparing the CFM (cubic feet of air moved per minute) of ceiling fans. The most important factor is the size of the blades. Fans with the highest CFM rating also tend to have the largest blade span, so you will find that the fans that come up first in our search results may be too large for your room. So you will want to filter your search results by the size of fan that you need. We also provide an interesting calculation that allows you to compare the actual amount of airflow that you will feel when you stand directly beneath each ceiling fan...and that is "Wind Speed". Ceiling fans cool you off by creating a wind chill effect, which is directly related to the wind speed that the fan produces.

The wind speed is based on the amount of CFMs produced in the column of air directly beneath the fan. So even though larger fans tend to have higher CFMs, the airflow is dispersed in a larger area and tends to be less concentrated, so the actual wind speed (or wind chill effect) may be lower. If you sort the results for your ceiling fan search by "Wind Speed", you will find that the smallest fans generally product the highest Wind Speed, even though they have a lower overall CFM rating. That is because smaller fans tend to operate at a higher RPM, which (when combined with a decent blade pitch) can potentially create a more concentrated breeze just beneath the fan.

So ultimately, it is important to install the appropriate sized ceiling fan for the area in which you need to feel the breeze. If you have a large room, but spend most of your time directly beneath the fan, then a somewhat smaller fan with a higher wind speed may be more appropriate than a larger fan that disperses a less concentrated flow of air over a larger area.

We provide all of this information to help you compare each ceiling fan on our site, but nothing beats talking to someone who knows how to interpret the information, which is why we suggest that you call and talk to our ceiling fan experts.

QUESTION:
I'm looking for a ceiling fan from Emerson called the Odyssey. I'm assuming it's been discontinued because I can't seem to find it anymore. I'm hoping it is not too late. Is this a fan you can get in stock?

ANSWER:
Unfortunately, the Emerson Odyssey ceiling fans were discontinued this year and we are completely sold out and have no way of getting any more. The most similar comparable ceiling fan that is still available is the Casablanca Stealth. I would highly recommend it as the best alternative. Here is a link: Casablanca Stealth Ceiling Fans

QUESTION:
will the W52 receiver and remote work with a Casablanca Airflow Emeritus II model E520 ceiling fan?

ANSWER:
The W52 remote control is not compatible with Airflow ceiling fans. Airflow ceiling fans are imported and distributed by Casablanca Fan Company, but are not made at the same factories as the normal Casablanca line of ceiling fans, nor are they considered to be Casablanca ceiling fans, so many of the components are not interchangeable between the brands. Airflow ceiling fans are low end generic models that Casablanca imports in order to compete with other low end fans sold at home centers and the like. As you might have noticed, we do not even include Airflow ceiling fans on our website, even though we are a well know Casablanca dealer.

QUESTION:
I have 2 questions about the Casablanca Brescia ceiling fan. In one picture the cherrywood matte finish blades appear light and in another dark. What is their true color? Also, when I order the downrod does it come in the weathered copper?

ANSWER:
Here is the best I can do as far as the actual color of the Cherrywood blades. The way colors appear vary from picture to picture due to changes in lighting conditions when pictures are taken. Also, every computer monitor may display images differently, so it is difficult to rely on pictures you see online if you must know the exact finish. When you add a downrod to the weathered copper Brescia ceiling fan, the downrod will be in the matching weathered copper finish as described on our site.

QUESTION:
how long can a ceiling fan operat at the highest speed. Could a fan operate 24 hours per day; 7 days per week

ANSWER:
Ceiling Fans that are rated 4 or 5 in quality on our website can operate 24 hours a day for extended periods. Fans rated 5 can be left on for years on end and survive. Lesser fans would likely burn out after several months of extreme operation. Most fans sold at home centers and mass merchants are not built to last that long and simply cannot handle being left on for long periods of time. So, if you plan to leave your fans on for extended periods, I highly recommend ceiling fans made by Casablanca that have their XLP motor or fans from Emerson that have their K55 motor. Also, the Hunter Original cast iron ceiling fans can handle such use. Please give us a call and we will be happy to direct you to the models I am referring to.

QUESTION:
Greetings. First of all, I really do appreciate the completeness of your website. Now, to the point. I am seriously thinking of purchasing the two fans in my cart; the Casablanca S3 and the Midway ECO. We have just spent $$$ on remodeling our new house, and these fans will make the remodel complete. I want (Need!) the best possible deal available. I have seen these fans on other sites for the same price. How good of a deal can you make??? Make it good, and you have my business!

ANSWER:
The reason you see the same price for these fans on other websites is because both Emerson and Casablanca does not allow dealers to advertise prices lower than what you see on our website. So we are showing you the lowest allowed price for both fans. With that said, we also Guarantee the Lowest Price Possible for all of the ceiling fans you see on our website with our LIFETIME Price Protection plan, which basically states that if you find a lower price 5 or 10 years from now (or any time in your life), we will refund the difference. We also offer an exclusive 5 Year FREE Replacement Parts Plan under which we will replace the glass or fan blades on your ceiling fan should you happen to break them somehow. No other company offers this extra level of protection for the purchase of ceiling fans online. These are just a few reasons why people choose to purchase ceiling fans like these from us rather than other online sources. You can read more about this here: About Our Exclusive Guarantees

QUESTION:
We want to order one Montecarlo 5WF52RB Weatherford Ceiling Fan and one Montecarlo MC-5WF42RB Weatherford II Ceiling Fan. Both indicate that they are Roman Bronze with a walnut blade. Are the fans identical (except for size)? The descriptions indicate that they are the same but the photos look quite different.

ANSWER:
Montecarlo Weatherford model 5WF52RB is a 52" fan. Model MC-5WF42RB is a 42" fan. The finishes and blade colors are actually the same, so if you are looking for matching larger and smaller fans for your home, these will work. The photos look slightly different due to variations in lighting when the manufacturer took the pictures.

QUESTION:
What is the difference between this Casablanca 66H72F and the 66H11F? Other than $20, the only difference I can find is that this one allows variable length downrods? Is that right or did I miss something? Thanks, Dick

ANSWER:
The Casablanca Halo Ceiling Fan model 66H72F is an Architectural white finish, which is a soft matte white that has an eggshell like texture to the finish. Model 66H11F is in the Casablanca Show White finish, which is glossy white. When put side by side, more people choose the Architectural white finish because it appears softer...and more sophisticated. The issue regarding the downrods has been fixed so that both fans now show similar downrod length options.

QUESTION:
I have 5 fans in my house. 3 are the same exact fan and the other 2 are different brands. Out of all of them only one spins fast enough to cool you down. The one fan that spins fast enough is the only one that isnt wired through a swithch. Is there a way to rewire the fans to make them spin faster? Any suggestions would be great.

ANSWER:
No, you cannot make a ceiling fan spin faster than the components inside the fan allow the fan to spin. How fast the blades spin on a ceiling fan is just part of what makes it move air. The blade pitch and blade surface area are equally important. Consider it like rowing a boat. If you place the oars flat in the watter, you can row faster, but you will go nowhere. The more you tilt the oars, the harder it is to pull them, but if you pull them as fast as if they were flat, then you will go very fast. However, it is simply not possible to pull the oars at the same speed when they are tilted as when they are flat...it takes much more strength. Also, if your oars are very narrow, they will again be easy to pull whether or not they are tilted. Make the oars wider and longer and they become very difficult to pull, but you move faster with each stroke.

Ceiling fans are the same. The blade pitch, width of the blades, length of the blades and RPMs at which the fan spin cause airflow. Ultimately, you need to replace your poorly operating ceiling fans with better quality fans that are designed to move air. If you use the fansearch tools on our website, you will see that almost every fan has a CFM rating as well as other ratings that allow you to see which fans move air and which do not.

It all boils down to quality, and more often, cost.

QUESTION:
Is there room in the mounting plate to cover an electrical junction box on the ceiling that is one and a half inches deep?

ANSWER:
All flush mounted ceiling fans require the junction box to be recessed into the ceiling such that it is flush with the ceiling. There is no room inside the motor casing to accommodate a junction box. I am about 99 percent certain that this statement holds true for any brand and model of hugger fan on the market.

QUESTION:
I am looking for three globes, 2.25 inch opening that is solid around the light bulb and not open allowing the light of the light bulb to show directly down. I would like the globe to diffuse the light. Is there such an item?

ANSWER:
The reason you are having a hard time finding such a globe is that most multiple light fixtures for ceiling fans are not designed to handle the heat generated by using enclosed globes. The fitter on your ceiling fan would need to have vent holes in the metal part that holds the glass in order to use an enclosed globe. Without allowing a means of venting the heat, the light bulbs would constantly overheat and burn out. Ceiling fan fixtures simply are not designed this way. One alternative is to use frosted bulbs with lower wattage to reduce the glare. Another alternative would be to change the light fixture on your fan to one that has globes that face upwards. However, your particular ceiling fan may not allow you to change the fixture. What brand and model of fan do you own, and do you know if the light fixture can be replaced?

QUESTION:
I have 2 Minka Aire fans on one circuit with 1 hand remote operation for both. Some how one fan is changed direction. How can I get them back in sync, like they started? My name is Chris and can be reached @ 832-457-2568

ANSWER:
The range of the remote transmitter for your ceiling fans is anywhere from 30 to 40 feet. So if you can stand about 30 feet from one of the fans while you are more than 40 feet form the other, you should be able to get the remote to actuate just one fan. This is likely what happened when they got out of sinc. If you need to move to a different room to make this happen, it will probably still work. Give it a try and let me know what happens by sending me an email: gregt@hansenwholesale.com.

QUESTION:
I have 3 rooms to cool in a 900 sq.ft bungalow - 10x10 bedrm, 8-11 kitchen, & 12x18 room. Latter is a "thru" room - there are 2 open doorways that connect to the rest of the bungalow. I like the looks of the Hunter Retro, and the Minka Aire supra. They are rated a tad lower than the Casablanca Ventura. I want a quiet, non wobbly fan. We live in NY state, so if the nights are cool, I dont need to use the ac, just the attic fan & ceiling fans, so Id use the fans a lot. Pls. advise

ANSWER:
If you prefer traditional style, the Casablanca Ventura is by far the best ceiling fan on the market in a 42" size and is in another league compared to the other 2 ceiling fans you are considering. The Ventura has an induction motor that runs a drive shaft through the middle of the motor that is attached to a rubberized flywheel. The blade holders are then attached to the flywheel which turns them. The flywheel dampens any noise and vibration caused by the motor enabling the fan to run dead quiet with no wobble or vibration. Induction motors for ceiling fans were invented by Emerson Electric and are found only in the top of the best ceiling fans sold by Casablanca, Emerson and Fanimation.

The other fans you are considering have spinner motors, which is what all other ceiling fans use. They are called spinner motors because the entire motor spins inside the fan and the blade holders are attached directly to the motor. This allows any noise or vibration created by the motor to be transferred directly to the blades, which in turn accentuates the noise or vibration rather than dampens it. There is a wide range of quality in spinner motors, which is why a lot of really cheap fans will wobble and make annoying sounds. The Hunter Retro and Minka Aire Supra use a decent quality spinner motor, so they do run pretty quiet compared to other fans. Ultimately, spinner motors are a fraction of the cost of the Induction type of motors used by Casablanca, Emerson and Fanimation. This is why you will pay more for the higher quality fans that these companies produce. BTW, not all fans made by these companies have induction motors, so for those reading this, be sure to look for the Casablanca XLP, Emerson K55 and Fanimation FDK (which is actually a K55 made by Emerson). So my vote goes hands down to the Ventura if the style fits your needs.

QUESTION:
Which fan is better, Emerson, Kitchner or Hunter?

ANSWER:
What you have asked is something like "which car is the best...Ford, Toyota or Chevrolet". Obviously each of these manufacturers has a wide range of cars in different classes, each with a selection of upgrades and options. So you cannot simply compare them by brand...you must consider them model to model, class to class and look at the included features, optional upgrades and price. The same is true with all of the ceiling fans our our website.

This is why we have created the comparison graphs that you see on our site for each of our ceiling fans. The detailed information in these graphs allow you to compare fans to each other to determine which ones are the best. If you read our Online Guide to Comparing Ceiling Fans, it will be a great help in understanding the information we supply in our comparison graphs as well as what to look for when you shop for ceiling fans.

We also know that what is better to one person does not fit the needs of another, so there are questions that need to be asked in order to decide which ceiling fans are best for you. Ultimately, the best way to get the answer you desire is to call and talk directly to one of our ceiling fan experts. They will know what to ask you in order to help you determine which ceiling fans are best suited for your particular needs...and budget.

QUESTION:
Hi, I am looking for colorful replacement outdoor Fan blades. Think, the Bahamas or Key West. Any suggestions where i might find them? Thanks David Hynes

ANSWER:
Fan blades are not interchangeable. Each brand makes the hole patterns differently for the various models that they manufacture. So you cannot just replace the blades on a ceiling fan unless the company that made your ceiling fan makes optional blades specifically for your model. If you let me know what brand and model of ceiling fan you own, I may be able to determine if there are optional blades to choose from. Otherwise, the way to get the blades you really want is to buy a fan that comes with them.

QUESTION:
does your warranty suck or what? Why would I take the fan down(labor) drive somewhere (BFE) and pay some dude $100 (labor) to fix it, drive back to pick it up(BFE) and re install it (labor)! Maybe, I go to the local HD or Lowes (everywhere) and buy another brand. So much for a lifetime warranty-trash can sounds better.

ANSWER:
I am sorry to hear that you are having problems getting your ceiling fan fixed. However, I cross referenced the name, phone number and email address that you supplied and found no record of you having purchased anything from us in the past 15 years. Nor has our customer service department logged any communication with you. So it appears that you are posting your comment here regarding a product you purchased somewhere else, which is unfortunate for others who rely on this forum for helpful information.

If I am mistaken and you did in fact purchase your ceiling fan from us, I apologize for your frustration and would ask that you give us a call so we can help you out. Otherwise, please feel free to email me the brand name and model number of your ceiling fan, how old it is and some details about what is wrong with it and I may be able to help you get it fixed with a lot less aggravation.

QUESTION:
What do you recommend for a 20 foot ceiling in family room??? I was looking at the Fanimation Palisade, but I am not just looking for decorative, but functional to the degree that that is possible. Should I stay away from the vertiacal and look at the traditional horizontal? I was hoping to get a reverse movement to also keep some heat from rising. I understand I will need maximum legth rod 72".

ANSWER:
Ceiling fans such as the Fanimation Palisades, which have vertical blades, are strictly decorative and provide very little airflow, so the Palisades is definitely not a good choice for your room. We have lots of other great ceiling fans to choose from that will be both decorative and functional. One of our ceiling fan experts will give you a call and help you choose the best one for your room.

QUESTION:
I am considering the Casablanca, can a aftermarket remote be used with the fan, and can the 117" rod be shortend?

ANSWER:
You cannot use aftermarket remote controls with most Casablanca ceiling fans (including the Atria) because they are not designed to fit into the canopy of the fan. Even if you were able to find one to fit, it would likely not operate at the correct amperage and, in any case, would void the warranty of the fan...which is not a good idea. As with most ceiling fan downrods, those made by Casablanca are not designed to be cut in the field. One of our ceiling fan experts will give you a call today to discuss your needs further...thanks for leaving your phone number.

ANSWER:
The Asheville ceiling fan is a Harbor Breeze fan sold only by Lowes...it is their own brand. They do not offer any options for most of their ceiling fans, it is what you see is what you get. The Asheville is no exception. So I am sorry to say that, unlike many of the fans we sell, you cannot change the light fixture on your Harbor Breeze ceiling fan.

QUESTION:
I am interested in the Casablanca Atria Ceiling Fan Model C18G500F. I have read the comments below, and find your responses helpful. I ask a similar question to ensure I place the order correctly. I am looking for a fan for our family room. The height of the room is 20 or 22 feet, dimensions approx. 19 x 25 and opens to the kitchen and living room. Right fan for the job? Separate phone order for the down rod? Will the fan shake because of the down rod? Noise? How quickly can I get it (NJ)?

ANSWER:
The Casablanca Atria sounds to me like a superb choice for your room. It is one of very few fans that I commonly recommend for large rooms with high ceilings that need lots of air. It has a very powerful motor with a high CFM rating and the wind speed is above average for fans with larger blade spans, so you will feel more breeze in a wider area, which is what you need the most. Casablanca ceiling fans are the absolute best quality. Whether a fan wobbles or not depends on the quality and tolerance to which the components are made and has little to do with the length of the downrod (see additional not below). The Atria is the best quality you can buy, so when installed properly, it will not wobble or sway with or without a downrod...and it will run dead quiet. You can add a downrod to your fan by clicking on the button for Downrods located just beneath fan picture on the product page. We ship Casablanca ceiling fans within 48 business hours of the time you place your order. Delivery time is usually 3 to 4 days depending on FedEx. If you must have it sooner, you can call for expedited shipping at a much higher shipping rate.

Regarding fans that wobble on a downrod: Fans that wobble do so because the parts used to make them are not made precisely or balanced at the factory. A fan that wobbles on a short downrod will sway in a circle if installed on a longer downrod. As a matter of fact, the longer the downrod, the more a poorly made fan will sway around in a circle rather than wobble. You can equate this to the effect of a pendulum...which is what you have when you have an out of balance fan installed on a long pole. Conversely, if you have a well made fan (like the Casablanca Atria) where the parts are all balanced at the factory, it does not matter how long the pole is that you use to install the fan, it will simply run smooth without swinging from side to side or wobbling.

QUESTION:
My room has air-conditioning out of floor vents near the walls. I have found that drawing the floor air up to the center ceiling mounted fan is a more cooling effect in the large room. Am I imagining this? It doesn't match the direction generally given on this page.

ANSWER:
As stated on our Ceiling Fan Direction page, there are cases where running a ceiling fan in reverse (clockwise direction) will actually produce a better cooling effect. The whole point of the discussion is to show various possibilities and reasons why one might run a fan in the opposite direction than what most other websites or manufacturers recommend. In your case, it makes sense that running your fan clockwise would draw the cool air from the ducts towards the center of the room and make you feel cooler.

However, since you are asking if you are imagining this, I must conclude that the difference is not significant enough for you to be certain, so I will add some additional feedback. Without knowing the performance specifications of the fan you own, I cannot say this for certain, but lets assume that the ceiling fan you own is an average model that was purchased from a home center. If that is the case, I will submit to you that since you are not noticing a significant difference in the cooling effect between forward and reverse, it is quite likely that your ceiling fan simply does not move very much air in either direction (which is common for average ceiling fans sold at home centers).

That being the case, it would make more sense to me that running it in reverse would have more cooling effect than in forward simply because in forward you are not getting much of a wind chill effect, while in reverse you are getting some benefit from drawing the cool air from your vents toward your living area.

So I propose that if you had a ceiling fan with a more powerful motor that was capable of producing a substantially higher CFM, you would likely feel cooler with the fan running in forward. You would still be moving the cool air from the vents just because of the air circulation being provided by the fan. On top of that, you would have the added benefit of the wind chill factor, which is how a good quality ceiling fan makes you feel cooler. With a higher wind chill factor, you would be able to reduce your reliance on the AC by raising your thermostat a few degrees...which could result in a substantial monthly savings on your cooling bills. These savings generally pay for the difference in price between an average home center ceiling fan and the better quality fans you see on our website that produce higher CFMs. Keep in mind that this is just a theory, because I do not know how good of a ceiling fan you own, nor do I know the configuration and dimensions of your living area or the height of the ceiling.

Can you tell me what brand and model of fan you own...or at least where it was purchased? I would love to know so I can see if my theory is correct.

ANSWER:
You must in fact use an outdoor ceiling fan in any outdoor location. Outdoor Ceiling Fans come in either Damp rated or Wet rated models and are UL listed to be able to handle the additional moisture and humidity that they will be exposed to...even in hot dry climates. Damp rated outdoor ceiling fans are designed for use in covered outdoor areas while wet rated models can be used in locations that are directly exposed to rain. Either type are sufficient for your needs. We have quite a few outdoor ceiling fans that move lots of air such as the Casablanca Atria and the Casablanca Twain ceiling fans. Here is a link to all of our Outdoor Ceiling Fans sorted by the Best Airflow. If you give us a call, one of our ceiling fan experts will help you choose the best ceiling fans for your needs.

ANSWER:
The best ceiling fans for humid climates are those designed for use outdoors. Most outdoor ceiling fans will have either ABS plastic blades, or some type of wood blade that can handle excessive moisture such as teak. There are no outdoor fans made with metal blades since metal blades are not safe in residential applications. Use this link to explore our wide selection of Outdoor Ceiling Fans.

Can the Minka-Aire Wall Control WC-106 light dimming function be used for a seperate light? I am planning to have installed one recessed fluorescent light along with a Minka-Aire ceiling fan with no light, and would like to utilize just one wall switch.

ANSWER:
Because the WC-106 control uses 2 separate hot wires to control the ceiling fan and light, you can in fact wire the light dimmer to a separate fixture providing it does not exceed the wattage limitations of the control, which is 240 watts. You must also be sure that the fluorescent fixture you are using is in fact dimmable, because many fluorescent fixtures are not.

QUESTION:
looking for an outdoor ceiling fan (3 actually) that can be flush mounted as our ceiling is low. what can you recommend? Price is important , no $600 fans!!! Thank you

ANSWER:
Regarding Flushmount Oudoor Ceiling Fans: Hands down I would recommend the Minka Aire Concept II Wet ceiling fans for outdoor locations with low ceilings. The Concept II ceiling fans were the first ever flush mounted fans rated for use outdoors and remain the best choice to this day. Here is a link: Minka Aire Concept II Wet Flushmount Outdoor Ceiling Fans. If the style does not work for your needs, then I would suggest you consider any of these: All Outdoor Flush mount Ceiling Fans. Some are wet rated and some are damp rated, but all will work in an outdoor covered area with a low ceiling and every one of them is good enough quality for me to recommend.

QUESTION:
NEED TO REPLACE THE GLASS LIGHTING DOME OR COVER ON MY FAN. THERE IS NO COMPANY LISTED ON THE FAN. MY MFGR IS 5A00090,UPC# 718212043806 VENDOR # 445993 MODEL # 54MKE

ANSWER:
Ceiling Fans like yours are typically imported directly from China by mass merchants, who then put their own label on the box and sell them under their own house brand name...or some other generic brand name that they create at will. There are no replacement globes imported for fans like this, so your only recourse may be to replace the entire fan. This is the most common demise of Ceiling Fans that people purchase from a home center. If you decide to purchase your next fan from us, we have access to replacement parts and will replace your glass FREE of charge if you break it within 5 years of your purchase. This is not a policy from the manufacturers of our ceiling fans...it is our own exclusive policy. No other ceiling fan dealer offers this type of extra protection to their customers.

QUESTION:
I live in Houston where the humidity today is 95%. My covered outdoor patio ceiling is seven and one-half feet (90 inches) high. Is there a fan that can be used in this circumstances?

ANSWER:
The best way to answer this question is to state that according to national building codes, all ceiling fans must be installed in such a manner that the fan blades are at least 7 feet from the floor. In your case, that would require an outdoor damp or wet rated flush mount ceiling fan that has blades that are 6" or less from the ceiling. Unfortunately, there are no ceiling fans that fit this criteria. So technically speaking, the answer would be no.

With that said, I would suggest you take a look at the Minka Aire Concept II ceiling fans that are built to handle excess humidity...and can even be exposed to rain. The blades hang down just over 8" from the ceiling, which comes about as close to meeting code as possible. Here is a link: Minka Aire Concept II Outdoor Ceiling Fans for Low Ceilings.

This is the only ceiling electrical fixture possible due to concrete ceiling. I would love a fan w/several down lights that could be directed to add more light. What size fan would you recommend? Also would like a contemporary style; without frosted glass scalloped bell shades. Does a fan in a small kitchen blow the gas flames on stove? Thank you.

ANSWER:
Great...thanks for the detailed description. One of our ceiling fan experts will give you a call and answer all your questions over the phone.

QUESTION:
I recently purchased a Hunter 5-minute ceiling fan at Home Depot. The model number (21312) is different than the one you offer on your website, but I assume they are similar. I installed the fan in my bedroom. It looks fine but I am VERY unhappy with the noise level. You give the 5-minute fan a rating of 3. If I purchase a fan with a rating of 4 or 5, how can I know that it will be quieter? I see specs for airflow and energy consumption but not for noise. Can you suggest a QUIET fan?

ANSWER:
Quietness of operation is a big factor in the quality rating for fans on our site. Any fan with a rating of 5 on our site will run dead quiet. Fans rated 3 or less will most likely have some audible motor noise as they are made with cheaper components in order to be sold at lower price ranges. Ceiling fans are in fact a good example of the old saying "you get what you pay for". The 5 Minute fan is decent quality fan compared to other fans that cost less than $200, but it is inexpensive compared to the higher quality fans rated 4 or 5 on our site. The truth is, mass merchants generally do not carry higher quality ceiling fans because they are more expensive than what their customers expect to pay. The Hunter 5 Minute Fan is about as good as it gets when you shop at a home center. If you give us a call, one of our ceiling fan experts will be happy to explain the differences between the various brands and models of ceiling fans on the market and help you find one that runs smooth and quiet...just be prepared to spend about 3 to 5 times the amount you paid for your Hunter 5 Minute Fan.

QUESTION:
Trying to buy American, saw the Hunter Palermo, liked it, but discovered it's made in China ... any brand or models that are made in the USA...or any way to shop on your site for those that are made here?

ANSWER:
This is a very common question. Unfortunately, the answer is that there are no longer any ceiling fans that are manufactured in the USA. Virtually ALL ceiling fans are made in China, with a few exceptions that are imported from other countries. Please read more about this here: Ceiling Fans made in the USA. After reading that page, please give us a call. Our ceiling fan experts can explain the difference between each brand and model of ceiling fan so you can at least have an idea what you are getting when you purchase a ceiling fan. There are vast differences in quality and performance between the various brands and models of ceiling fans that are being imported today.

QUESTION:
I recently purchased a ceiling fan that I love, the blade span is 52" which works for one room. I would like to get the fan again, but with shorter blades. Can I switch blades from 52" to 36" ?? If so, where can I buy just blades??

ANSWER:
First off, I need to know what brand and model of fan you are referring to in order to give you a specific answer. Without that information, I will say that the general answer is no...you cannot change the blade span of most ceiling fans (at least the common brands sold by mass merchants). Doing so will most likely burn out the motor due to the additional torque or RPMs that result. Most fans are designed to handle the stress applied by the blades they come with. For this reason, you will find that there are most likely no smaller blades that will even fit onto your fan.

There are many exceptions to this rule when it comes to the higher quality fans you see on our website where the blades are actually sold separately. Brands like Emerson, Casablanca, Fanimation and The Modern Fan Company have higher quality motors that are built to handle various ranges of operation. With that said, the only brand that I am aware of that offers 36", 42" and 52" blade options for some of their fans is The Modern Fan Company. Aside from the potential problems that smaller or larger blades can cause with ceiling fan motors, most 52" fans would simply look silly with 36" blades because of the proportions of the motor housing to the blades. Fans made by Modern Fan Company are sleek and contemporary in style, so they can get away with various blade spans without losing their decorative appeal.

However, I will say that I am familiar with the Hampton Bay industrial ceiling fan you are referring to and I can tell you that you cannot install it outdoors. It is rated for use indoors only. Please give us a call so we can help you find some ceiling fans that will be suitable for your terrace.

QUESTION:
I have a 53 inch white casablanca stealth fan and the glass light cover has broken. I would like to know if I can order a replacement and how much it would cost?

ANSWER:
We can get the replacement glass for your Casablanca Stealth ceiling fan, but we must first know the serial number of the fan. You can find the serial number on the top of the motor housing. Casablanca has changed the globe shape slightly over the years, so the ones that are currently being produced may or may not fit your fan depending on when it was made, which is why we need the serial number. Please find that, then give us a call.

QUESTION:
why does my fan turn so slow. It has 3 speeds and they are all slow. It does not give out any air

ANSWER:
Some ceiling fans move lots of air, while others do almost nothing. Without knowing what brand and model you own, I cannot tell you if there is something wrong with the fan or if it is just poorly made. I will say that if you purchased the fan at a home center (or similar mass merchant), then it is likely poorly designed fan that is made mostly to be in a cheap price range rather than to move air. Please read the information posted on our Ceiling Fan FAQs page. If you email me the brand and model of fan you own, then I can most likely give you more specific information.

QUESTION:
I was in touch with Mike from efanparts.com and he told me to call you about the possibility of getting a fan to fit my light set -- the remote receiver (5 dip switches) went bad and cannot be replaced. My 5-blade 52" fan in BA Brass has a plug which goes into the remote so that it can work. I want to keep the 5-light fixture set and want to know if you have any kind of fan that would allow me to do this along with keeping the remote control feature, if possible. Please contact me!

ANSWER:
We first need to know the brand and model of both the fan and light fixture that you own. If you cannot supply this, then please email me some pictures so I can see what you have. Email your ceiling fan pictures to: gregt@hansenwholesale.com

QUESTION:
We're looking for an outdoor ceiling fan to replace a highly decorative, but feel-no-breeze Hunter ceiling fan. What measure do we look for when considering the maximum air flow that the ceiling fan will produce? Also, our patio has a vaulted (high) ceiling. Should we look for extension rods to lower the fan closer to the seats?

ANSWER:
For maximum performance and to feel the most wind chill affect, you want the fan blades 7 feet from the floor or as close to that as is possible and still aesthetically pleasing. The higher the fan is from you, the more important it is to purchase a ceiling fan that generates more CFM. I always suggest looking for the highest CFM regardless, because it gives you the most airflow potential. If a fan moves too much air, you can always turn it down...and on those really hot days, you will appreciate having the extra power that would not be there with a weaker fan. For more specific advice regarding your application, please call and talk directly to one of our ceiling fan experts...they will save you lots of time...and probably save you some money in the process.

QUESTION:
I want to install a ceiling fan with a good light in my daughter's BR. The room is 10' 8" x 12', with ceiling height of 7' 6". I tried Hunter 44" Stratford from HD (white finish flush-mount w/ 2 14W CFLs), but it hung too low (15.28 inches from ceiling). It's over the foot of the bed, so headroom was not the issue; it just looked too obtrusive. What would you suggest in lowest profile possible, but with good light? Thank you.

ANSWER:
The Minka Aire Concept II ceiling fan that you were looking at when you posted your question is by far the fan that I would most recommend. It moves lots of air, runs very smooth and quiet and only drops 10 1/2" from the ceiling. The only other fan I would suggest is the Emerson Curva Sky 44, which is very similar. Some people prefer one over the other simply because of the slight difference in shape...although the Curva Sky drops down 2 more inches than the Concept, so in your case I would stick with the Concept. Here is a link to the Emerson Curva Sky 44 anyway: Emerson Curva Sky 44 Ceiling Fan

QUESTION:
The light kit on my remote control ceiling fan has quit working. All wires are firmly connected. Can I put a pull chain light kit on a remote control fan? It is a Hunter..approx 4 years old.

ANSWER:
Solving your problem depends on whether the Hunter fan you have came with a built-in remote control, or if it was one that you added later. If it was added later, then you can rewire the power that goes into the remote receiver from the ceiling for the lights to bypass the remote and go directly to the light. However, what I would do first is replace the remote transmitter and receiver...which will most likely solve your problem and allow you to use your existing light fixture. What is the model number of Hunter fan do you own...if you let me know, I can have someone check availability of the parts?

QUESTION:
Minka Aire Concept II 52" F 519-WH How far does it drop from the ceiling ? What is the CFM Thank you

ANSWER:
The blades drop 8 1/2" from the ceiling and it is only 10 1/2" from the ceiling to the bottom of the light fixture. The Concept II fans produce a hefty 6,300 CFM, which is very high compared to other hugger fans. This information is posted on the product page for this fan which can be located here: Minka Aire Concept II ceiling fans.

QUESTION:
I am looking for a 4-bulb light kit for an antique brass c. fan. I cannot locate the brand name but it does have a center screw. Is #12 240 lite fix.Mod.#F401 a good choice or do you have other recommendations? Please include prices including shipping costs. Thank you.

ANSWER:
The F401 light fixture will work for any fan that has a center screw bottom cap that is designed to accommodate a universal light fixture, so it is a good choice. Keep in mind that it is unlikely that the antique brass finish of the light fixture will not match the antique brass finish of your fan since each brand makes their finishes differently.
