4201. General Question #1202 Posted: 8/10/2007 1:17:36 PM

QUESTION:
Should switch on Hunter fan be up or down

ANSWER:
Up or down is not the question...since that depends on how they installed the reverse switch. For summer, simply make sure the blades are spinning counter clockwise, and clockwise for winter (that is looking up at the fan). For more details about the direction ceiling fans should operate for various purposes, visit: Ceiling Fan Direction

4203. General Question #1192 Posted: 8/8/2007 8:01:08 PM

QUESTION:
I have a ceiling fan with 5 blades & 3speeds that sounds like a bearing is bad and the fan thru one of it's blades what do you suggest?

ANSWER:
That doesn't sound good. Bearings cannot be replaced in ceiling fans. What do you mean by the fan thru one of its blades? Do you mean it went flying off? Let me know what brand and model of fan is it...and maybe I can offer some suggestions other than buying a new fan.





4204. General Question #1189 Posted: 8/8/2007 3:58:25 PM | View page where question was posted

QUESTION:
Does this model come with a light kit? If so is it one bulb? Is it "damp rated"?

ANSWER:
Light kits are optional for the Montecarlo Colony II ceiling fans. The fan pictured on our site was showing an obsolete fixture, so we have changed the image to show the fan without a light. If you wish to add a light, simply click on the link for "Lights" under "Add or Modify Options". Also, as indicated on our site, the fan is "For indoor use only" meaning it is not rated for damp or wet locations. If you are looking for a small damp location fan, we have many to offer...just give us a call and we will be happy to suggest the perfect fan for your needs.





4205. General Question #1184 Posted: 8/8/2007 11:10:45 AM

QUESTION:
Can I convert a switch light to a pull chain

ANSWER:
I would love to answer your question, but can you please be more specific? I do not know if you are talking about a ceiling fan or a chandelier or something else.





4206. General Question #1177 Posted: 8/7/2007 3:03:43 PM

QUESTION:
I am looking for a ceiling fan unit that has a common base mount with a fan mounted on each end. I saw a unit on a home improvement show that looked like it was four feet long with a fan at each end. It had two motors and two sets of blades. They were standard looking fans with prop type blades. Can you send me the scoop on these fans?

ANSWER:
Are you referring to fans where the blades are in the normal rotating position (horizontal) like standard fans, or are you referring to fans where the blades rotate vertically?





4207. General Question #1175 Posted: 8/7/2007 2:19:46 PM

QUESTION:
I have a Moss 36" (maybe 42" five blade ceiling fan that I purchased in the mid 1980's. It is model HFA, HWA, and HFBA series. Can you tell me what light fixture is compatible with this ceiling fan?

ANSWER:
Never heard of this brand, so I must say no I cannot tell you. However, if you email me a picture of the fan, I might be able to make a determination.

4209. General Question #1166 Posted: 8/6/2007 9:00:24 PM

QUESTION:
I want to mount a white fan on a 4" wide beam that's 8' above the floor, so need a canopy that's 4" diameter or less. Recommend a model? Also, should it be flush mounted or not (given the 8' ceiling height) ?

ANSWER:
You will be hard pressed to find any ceiling fan with a canopy that is 4" wide or less. However, your situation is very too unusual and it is normal for the canopy to be slightly wider than the beam (most canopies are about 5 to 6 inches wide). You will see this all the time if you look more closely at fans that are attached to beams...particularaly with fans installed in restaurants. You just do not notice it unless you are looking for it. As far as using a flush mounted fan, there is no need to do this since almost all ceiling fans are designed to be installed on 8 foot ceilings using the hardware that is supplied in the box. Plus, a flush mount fan would only exaggerate the problem you have with your beam.





4210. General Question #1163 Posted: 8/6/2007 6:40:23 PM

QUESTION:
Where are the fuses located in the fan

ANSWER:
Fans do not use fuses...although some do have capacitors.

4213. General Question #1154 Posted: 8/6/2007 10:36:42 AM

QUESTION:
I need a flush mount ceiling fan that is remote controlled and the blade finish is cherry. If you have one, please email me.

ANSWER:
Okay...what you are requesting is very limiting to your selection, but not concise enough for me to make a recommendation. So before I respond, I need to know the following:

1. How far from the ceiling do you want the blades to be positioned? (rather than using the term flusmount)
2. What is the height of the ceiling?
3. What are the dimensions of the room?
4. Do you need a light fixture, and if so, how far down can the light hang from the ceiling?
5. What would be the finish preference on the motor housing itself...white, brass, brushed nickel, bronze...etc.?
6. What room is it in?
7. Do you want maximum airflow or is average or below average suitable? (this has to do with quality and price)
8. Finally, when you say cherry finish blades, do you mean the reddish cherry mahogany, light natural cherry, medium stained or dark stained cherry?

These are the kinds of questions our experts ask when you call us, which is why we recommend doing so. However, if you can email me your response, I will be happy to find the perfect fan for you.





4214. General Question #1153 Posted: 8/6/2007 8:41:20 AM

QUESTION:
why do ceiling fans warp

ANSWER:
I am assuming that you are referring to the ceiling fan blades. If so, this is more common in the less expensive fans that use either pressed wood blades, cardboard blades or inferior laminate blades. The best fans use high quality furniture grade veneer blades (plywood) that have at least 7 layers of wood. Multiple layers of wood glued together with the grain going in different directions helps to eliminate warping. Fans that actually use solid wood blades are the worst because the wood is too thin and it will warp almost instantly. So this is one case where plywood is better than solid wood...even though the brands that say they use solid wood blades want you to think it is better...because it sounds better. In fact, it is less expensive to manufacture and does nothing for you but warp. Warping will also increase with moisture as well, so if you live in a climate that is very humid, it will increase the chances of warping in an inferior quality blade. For outdoor applications and moist places like bathrooms, blades should actually be made of ABS (plastic) to prevent warping. To put things into perspective, a set of high quality veneer blades from the best brands will cost about $50.00...so imagine what the blades would be like on a fan that you purchase from one of the home centers where the overall cost of the fan with motor, blades and light is under $50.00...Hhmmm...it makes you wonder what else might be wrong with a fan like that.





4215. General Question #1151 Posted: 8/6/2007 7:20:33 AM

QUESTION:
Can I attach a chandelier (not crystal) to a ceiling fan? Do I need any special attachments?

ANSWER:
No, ceiling fans are not designed to hold the additional weight of a chandelier, nor is there any mounting hardware designed to do so. You might have seen this done somewhere, but that does not mean that it was done safely. It will also void the warranty of the fan.





4216. General Question #1146 Posted: 8/5/2007 9:20:40 PM

QUESTION:
Do you know of a place to purchase hand-crank ceiling fans (for a cabin without electricity)?

ANSWER:
Great questions...for which I have no answer. In other words, you have stumped me because I know of no manufacturers of ceiling fans that do not require electricity. If you find one, I would love to hear back from you so I can post the correct answer to our site.





4217. General Question #1140 Posted: 8/5/2007 3:20:37 PM | View page where question was posted

QUESTION:
Can this fan be flush mounted?

ANSWER:
Yes it can. Hunter supplies mounting hardware with the fan that eliminates the small downrod if so desired. However, we do not suggest you use it unless your ceiling is lower than 8 feet because it will reduce the overall performance of the fan by moving the blades too close to the ceiling, which restricts the amount of air that can flow around the blade.





4218. General Question #1139 Posted: 8/5/2007 12:51:56 PM

QUESTION:

4219. General Question #1138 Posted: 8/5/2007 12:38:47 PM

QUESTION:
should ceiling fans turn clockwise or counter clockwise for the summer

ANSWER:
Counter clockwise is the generic answer for ceiling fan operation during the summer. However, this is not always true. Visit this link on our site for an in depth discussion of ceiling fan direction: Ceiling Fan Direction





4220. General Question #1137 Posted: 8/5/2007 12:01:28 PM

QUESTION:
I have 3 ceiling fans with remote controls; the house. How do I program the controls so that they operate a single fan?

ANSWER:
There are usually dip switches inside the remote transmitter battery compartment and the remote receiver which is located somewhere either in the ceiling fan motor housing, ceiling fan canopy, or the ceiling fan switch cover (the bottom of the fan). You may need to remove the ceiling fan from the ceiling in order to find the receiver. Once you find the dip switches in the transmitter and receiver, simply change them to where they are all the same between all fans and the control(s).

However, you will find that depending on where you are standing in your room, the control may or may not communicate with one or more of the ceiling fans, so you may end up turning two fans on and off, while the others do not get the signal. This can cause problems because you may never be able to syncronize your fans. You may want one off and another on, but simply cannot do it unless you are standing in just the right spot (so you will need to mark the floor :-).

Further more, some remote controls operate on radio frequency, others operate on infraread, which will complicate issues even more. For infrared models, you must point the transmitter at the fan, so it will not turn another fan on and off. Radio frequency remotes can in fact turn two or more fans on and off at the same time if they are within the range of the transmitter (usually somewhere between 25 and 50 feet depending on the brand).

After re-reading the question, I might have gotten your intention reversed, but this information should still be sufficient if you want each fan to operate on their own frequency...just make sure the dip switches are different between the fans, but matching between the individual fan and control that are paired up.

QUESTION:
What does it mean on the descriptions for light fittings when it states "in Finish"? Thank you. Jean Silvasy

This is an error. Basically, it trying to say that the the fixture comes in the finish of the ceiling fan. It simply cannot locate the name of that finish. Thanks for questioning this, we will fix the problem ASAP.

QUESTION:
Is it possible to order a F531-BN/MG with the DL75-BN downrod? I want the mahogany blades but not the downrod with the mahogany on it.

ANSWER:
You can certainly order the DL75-BN for any of the Minka Aire Flyte ceiling fans since it is a separate item anyway. It just does not show up on our site as an option because we automatically show the downrods that are associated with the finish of the fan.

QUESTION:
Why is the FP4320 this rated a 3star? It has an 188 series motor and 20 degree pitch. I would select it with one of the standard shaped blades (cherry or oak). It seems that similar fans get a 4 rating.

ANSWER:
Good observation. If you selected one of the standard blade shapes, I would give the fan a rating of 4. However, for the most part, people look to Fanimation fans for their palm leaf blades, so we downgrade the rating accordingly.





4227. General Question #1124 Posted: 8/4/2007 4:42:00 PM

QUESTION:
how can i convert my hunter remote controlled fan to a 3 speed fan? Greg

ANSWER:
Well, odds are you cannot convert your remote controlled fan into a pull chain fan (assuming that is what you mean) since it was not wired with the capacitors and additional wires necessary for a pull chain fan. This would be an exception if the remote control was an aftermarket add on, in which case you would simply just remove the receiver which is sandwitched between the wires coming out of the ceiling and those going to the fan. If you can let me know what model number the fan is, I will be able to give you a more direct response.

QUESTION:
I have a ceiling fan that appears the globe can not be removed to change the light bulbs. There are no screws, no clips and I have not idea how to get to the bulbs. Any help would be appreciated.

ANSWER:
Typically, the glass on ceiling fans with flush mounted integrated light fixtures is removed by gently pressing up on the glass while turning it. Normally counter clockwise. The glass itself is somewhat screwed in, usually by 1/4 turn or so.

I have one of these Wailea fans w/ blads that look like maple on one side and cherry on the other. They attach to a brushed nickle motor asssembly. I know these blades are discontinued, but wonder if you have any left in your inventory? Thanks for checking.

ANSWER:
Sorry, we do not. The blades come with the fan anyway, they are not a separate item that would be on someones shelf, so the odds of finding them are slim to none.

4236. General Question #1101 Posted: 8/3/2007 11:42:35 AM

QUESTION:
Concord Aircel 60ACL5ORB or Minka Aire II: which one for a samll home office, 10x11, stone and galss wallls, 4 computers in room, 2 desks? Computers make noise, so must be quiet. There is a central AC, but it does not cool enough the room. thanks

ANSWER:
For starters, the Concord Aircel 60ACL5ORB is a 60" diameter fan, so it is definately out of the question as it should be used in a room at least 15 x 15. If the the other model you are referring to is the Minka Aire "Concept II", then yes, this would be an ideal fan for good air movement and quiet operation. However, if you want the most air movement from this fan, you should consider the Concept II Wet, which is the outdoor version. They beefed up the motor in this version to help keep flies away outdoors, making it a better performing fan for indoors. They considered droping the regular one from their line but decided not to simply because it is a little less expensive ($40.00 less). Here are links to the two versions:

I will need to know the brand and model number of both the ceiling fan and the remote control to see if I can come up with some installation instructions for you.





4238. General Question #1098 Posted: 8/3/2007 10:09:03 AM

QUESTION:
What is causing my ceiling fan to change speed by itself. I hear it click and change speed every few minutes. I'm in a rural area so it shouldn't be cause by garage door openers, etc. It happens any time of day and night.

ANSWER:
Sounds to me like the receiver or transmitter may be going bad...if there are no other remote devices that could be sending a signal. To eliminate the possiblity that other devices are causing the problem, try changing the frequency of the remote system. If you look inside the battery compartment of the transmitter, you should find some dip switches. You can change these in any way. Then, you must find the same dip switches in the fan motor receiver unit, either located in the canopy or somewhere in the motor housing. Change these to match your transmitter. If the problem continues, then you probably need to replace the transmitter and receiver. If it is a fan you purchased from a home center, odds are you cannot get replacement parts and you will need to replace the entire fan...in which case, we would be happy to help you find something more reliable.

QUESTION:
Big question on this one.... can we shorten the rod to get closer to the ceiling, almost flush mount? Otherwise, it's perfect. Many thanks. Lori Davis

ANSWER:
The Nimbus ceiling fan comes with a 4" and 10" downrod. With the 4" downrod, the fan hangs 18" from the ceiling to the bottom of the fan. The downrod is not made to be cut and the fan is made to perform without wobbling with the minimal downrod. This fan is designed to be installed on an 8 foot ceiling with the smallest downrod for best performance. Is your ceiling lower than 8 feet? If so, I would suggest using Mondern Fan Company Ball Hugger which hangs only 13" from the ceiling, or the Minka Aire Concept II which hangs about 10" from the ceiling. Here are links to these to fans:

QUESTION:
Can you tell me what kind of motor the today's Original uses? Do we still use oil in it? What are the RPM speed for this fan on low and meduim speed? I also want to know what is the long of the downroad that comes with it? Thanks

ANSWER:
The new Classic Original ceiling fan has a slightly modified version of the original motor that was previously made in the USA. The motor is now made in China and still uses an oil bath system. Although the motor housing is still cast iron, the actual motor has been updated and measures 210mm x 20mm. This is still the most powerful fan motor on the market making it the most powerful energy star rated fan available as well. The Original fans come with a standard 3 1/2" downrod which puts the fan blades 12.19" from the ceiling. The RPMs range from 92-257.

4248. General Question #1085 Posted: 8/2/2007 5:20:55 PM

QUESTION:
How does the Minka Aire Espacio I compare to the Casablanca Sena in overall performance - quiet, best motor, good light? Any other suggestions for 56" fan?

ANSWER:
I would have to give the award to the Casablanca Siena. This fan has a 188mm x 25mm motor with a 15 degree blade pitch and a built-in uplight and downlight. The Minka Aire Espacio has a 188mm x 20mm motor with narrower blades at a 14 degree blade pitch. Both fans have an airflow rating of 4 on our site, but the Casablana will outperform the Minka because of the larger motor stack height (slightly more power), and the one degree better blade pitch. The biggest difference will be that the Casablanca fan will put out about 2 times the amound of light and better control of the ambience because you have an uplight and downlight that can be operated independently via remote control. Both will run smooth and quiet, but the overall quality of the Casablanca fan from a material and just visual look is best. Here are links back to our site for both fans:

QUESTION:
can this fan be mounted flush to the ceiling? Also, my patio is open, (no screens or windows), will 52" fan be ok for an 11' x 16' patio? Thanks, Bea

ANSWER:
Yes, the Hunter Sea Air ceiling fan can be mounted flush to the ceiling and is perfect for the size of your patio as far as the blade span from a visual standpoint. However, from a functional standpoint, you may wish to consider a more powerful ceiling fan because your area is somewhat large for the airflow this fan will provide. I would recommend using either the Hunter Outdoor Original fan or the Casablanca Outdoor Panama in this application since these fans will produce nearly 2 times the airflow as the Sea Air. The downside is that you cannot flush mount either of these fans. An important consideration is that flush mounting any ceiling fan will further reduce the airflow because it restricts the flow of air around the blades. We do not recommend flush mounting a fan unless your ceiling height is lower than 8 feet, in which case you really have no choice. If in fact your ceiling is lower than 8 feet, I would suggest you consider the Minka Aire Concept II Wet, which is an outdoor rated fan specifically designed for lower ceilings. Here is a links to the fans I suggested:

QUESTION:
I have a ceiling fan that only wobbles at high speed. Is that a problem? Should I try to rebalance blades or not worry about it? Thanks.

ANSWER:
One should always be concered if a fan wobbles because this can cause parts of the fan to come lose, potential the mounting hardware. You should balance the fan or consider replacing it if you cannot balance it. There is a resource on our site that addresses balancing a ceiling fan in great detail including trouble shooting to determine why your fan wobbles as well as a video that shows how to balance a fan using a fan balancing kit.

QUESTION:
I have a hunter ceiling fan and want to put palm fan blade covers on the blades. This is a 42in fan. What are your thoughts? Thanks

ANSWER:
Not a good idea. Palm blade covers substantially more torque on the motor than the motor was designed to handle. This will void the warranty of hte fan and could potentially burn out the motor. You will also find that your fan will move almost no air after you put on the blade covers because the motor cannot spin fast enough to generate air movement. Palm leaf fans in general are decorative fans and are not designed to move air, although there are a few exceptions. Look at our tropical ceiling fans and then sort by airflow to see which ones are actually functional.

QUESTION:
Dear Sir or Madame, I have 2 Lugano fans. One of them is making a squeaking, grinding sound and running slow. Do I need to lubricate these fans and if so, how do I do it.

ANSWER:
The Hunter Lugano ceiling fan has sealed bearings, so there is no need (and no way) to lubricate it. It sounds like something may be loose or out of alignment which is causing the center portion of the fan to rub against the fan body either on the top or bottom. I would first check this by spinning the fan manually (slowly) just to see if it is rubbing. If it is, you may be able to tweak it back into alignment. Otherwise, I would suggest contacting Hunter directly. They have a network of repair centers accross the country and can refer you to someone who should be able to fix your fan.

QUESTION:
can I use this ceiling fan light on an screend outdoor terrace?

ANSWER:
The correct technical answer is no...screened outdoor rooms are required by codes to have fans rated for use oudoors. You can use fans rated for either damp or wet locations. Some people will ignore this. It could cause damage to any indoor rated fan (although unlikely), it could also short out, and it will definately void any warranty. This applies to any indoor fan from any brand.

QUESTION:
My house heating / cooling system has trouble keeping the upstairs cool in the summer and the downstairs warm in the winter. Would a ceiling fan on ceiling above the stairs help this? If so, should it be at the top or bottom of the stairs?

ANSWER:
Definately. This is one of the most common applications for a ceiling fan, to help mix the air in your home. The height the fan should hang depends on the stairwell, but normally a 2-story application, you would want to hang the fan on a six foot downrod if possible. You should also consider a fan that has the most powerful motor you can afford. The best fans on our site will have an airflow rating of 5, so look for those to perform the best for your needs. Call us to discuss your particular stairwell and we will be happy to make further recommendations.





4263. General Question #1055 Posted: 8/1/2007 12:23:38 PM

QUESTION:
Are there options to buy and install larger ceiling fan blades in some of these models? I just installed a Hunter Prestige 28421, and the fan blades are too small. Or, is there an optional blade that can fit over the existing blade? thx-Travis

ANSWER:
Model 28421 is the Hunter Orbit fan. If this is the fan you are referring to, you cannot change the blades. Furthermore, if you want a fan with longer blades, you need to purchase a fan that is designed to spin them. Longer blades require a more powerful motor, so even if you did get longer blades for your fan, you would need to increase the power of the motor (which you cannot do), otherwise, you can burn the motor out since it was not designed to handle the additional torque required to drive longer blades. The Hunter Orbit is a very small 36" diameter fan designed for walk-in closets, laundry rooms, hallways, kitchens or extremely small bedrooms (less than 8 x 8). Might I ask what rooms you have put this fan in and where you purchased them? You may be able to return them and get some more appropriate fans. Let me know...I will see if I can help.

ANSWER:
Any of the darker tones will work best for a rustic look on the Emerson Apollo. Aged Walnut, Oil Rubbed Bronze, Old Brick, Barbecue Black or Burnished Copper. Of the 5, my preference is the Aged Walnut...mostly because it is new and interesting and rustic. The fan does have the K55 motor, so you can use either 4 or 5 blades as you choose.

No, the Craftmade Log Cabin is made from molded resin. The coloration is very realistic though. The resin will last substantially longer than wood, is easier to clean, will not transfer motor noise (runs quiet) and will always look great. Plus, it is a lot less expensive than hand crafting it from pieces of wood. It truly is a great looking fan.

QUESTION:
What is the average noise generated by a ceiling fan....?

ANSWER:
The only noise you should hear from a good quality ceiling fan is the sound of air moving. Lesser quality fans will make vibrating, ticking, humming or buzzing sounds. So average depends on the level of quality. Lower quality fans that will make some noise are usually in the under $150 price range. The best fans that make no motor noise are the fans on our site that have an airflow rating of 4 or 5. If you are looking for a technical answer regarding decibles, I do not know the answer.

QUESTION:
can you rewire remote control fans so they can be control by wall switch one switch for light and one switch for fan?

ANSWER:
Some yes, some no, it depends on the brand and model of the ceiling fan. Some fans use what they call a universal remote control that has a receiver inside the canopy of the fan that is wired between the ceiling and the fan motor. If this is the case, you may be able to bypass the control. Others use more proprietary systems that cannot be bypassed. Without knowing the brand and model of fan you are referring to, I cannot give you any more specific information. If you can supply me with that, I may be able to help you further. If you cannot locate the brand and model of your fan, email me a picture and I will see if I can recognize it. It would also help if I knew where the fan was purchased.

QUESTION:
Is there a need to run a ceiling fan in a room when no one is in the room, i.e. at night in the dining room/living room and we are in the bedroom sleeping? Thank you.

ANSWER:
There is little need to run your ceiling fans in other rooms when you are sleeping at night, they will not do anything to raise the comfort level in your bedroom. For you to feel the cooling effect of a ceiling fan, you need to be near or under it. However, if you do not have a fan in your bedroom and the fan in your living room is close to your bedroom, you may have a very slight benefit, but you will need to run it on the highest speed for it to move air into your bedroom. In my case, I do leave my fans running in other rooms at night when it is very hot because I have several cats and a dog who spend the nights indoors. They need to keep cool as well and will sleep beneath the fans.

Ceiling fans simply are not made in the USA anymore. If you want the closest thing to an contemporary fan made in the USA, I would look at Emerson or Casablanca, which are both USA companies and still does some of the manufacturing and assembly of their products in the USA, unfortunately still not enough to legally claim they are made in the USA. The best contemporary fans from these two companies are the Casablanca Stealth and the Emerson Odyssey. Here are links to both of these fans:

QUESTION:
I need 2 hugger fans. From the picture it would appear this model goes straight to the ceiling. However, you give the dimensions of the fan with a down rod. Which is it? I called Hunter on this fan and they said it is 8.23" from ceiling to bottom of fan. Unfortunately, their customer support for further information had an extremely long hold time.

ANSWER:
The picture that you are looking at that describes the dimensions of our fans is a generic picture. What is important is what it states as the dimension from ceiling to the bottom of the fan, which is 9.75". The spec that Hunter quoted most likely for a different version of this fan called the Low Profile III Plus, which comes with a 3 light fixture attached to the bottom of the fan. That version measures 8.3" to the point where the light fixture attaches, but the height to the bottom of the light fixture is 14.1". I would suggest that you give us a call regarding further questions or recommendations because we can better help you over the phone. We do not usually have the wait time that Hunter does and you will need to call if you wish to place an order anyway.





4279. General Question #1018 Posted: 7/30/2007 9:37:06 AM

QUESTION:
Wiring question. I have 4 wires, red, white, black and ground coming from my ceiling. My fan includes a light and remote. The receiver for the remote control has six wires ( side 1 has blue, orange, black and white wires) and side 2 of the receiver has 2 wires( white and black). The receiver for the remote needs to be wired to the fan which has four wires (blue, orange, white and black)and then to the house current. How do i do the wiring? My fan is 56" Exeter Harbor Breeze.Model:HE-04110LDWO.

ANSWER:
I wish I could help you with this one, but I cannot because each fan will have its own wiring schematic. Since Harbour Breeze fans are made exclusively for Lowes, I do not have access to their schematics. Please contact Lowes where you purchased the fan. Otherwise, I would recommend contacting an electrician or returning the fan and purchasing a fan that does not have these complex wiring issues. Most of the fans that we sell that have built-in remote controls already have the remotes wired in, so you as a consumer do not need to deal with this issue.

QUESTION:
What will happend to a Outdoor fan(of course installed outside, on a porch for exemple)during the winter? Will the frozen temperatures and snow will affected the motor inside the housing and after it will not work correctly? Or these fans are design to installed in the south only?

ANSWER:
There is no limitation on where an outdoor fan can be installed...freezing or hot temperatures. Although, as you know by living in a harsh climate, the weather does have an impact on the external appearance of things, so I would not expect the fan to look somewhat weathered after going through the winter. It is for this reason that many of the fan manufacturers now make fans in darker weathered looking finishes.

QUESTION:
I wonder why in North America industrials ceiling fans are really not recommanded for residential application, when in others places like in Asia or Africa they are the normal type of ceiling fans? I wanted to know if we can installed these types of fans in a residential application with a 8 or 9 feet ceiling? I belive with the variable speed controle you can reach really low speeds, and they also comes with a shorter downroads.

ANSWER:
Some countries are not concerned if you injure yourself with something unsafe in your home. The truth is, the industrial fans you see on our site will operate at RPMs as much as 5 times that of a normal fan. Plus, some of them have metal blades. This type of fan could do some serious damage if you stuck your hand in the path of the blades while it is on. Not something we highly recommend. So you should be advised that you really need not install an industrial fan on any ceiling lower than 13 feet or so, depending on the manufacturers specifications. By the way, I have seen some fans in other countries that look like some of the industrial ceiling fans that we supply, but they do not have the powerful motors and high RPMS. Rather, they are simply a motor and blades with no decorative housing to cover the motor. I've seen fans like this on sale at Home depot for less than $20 in the past. One time I purchased one just to crack it open and see what was inside. This may be the type of fan you are referring to because they look similar to our industrial fans.

QUESTION:
When using fan model CF704SAW w/ optional light model EM-F440AW, what is the measurement from ceiling to the bottom of the lights when they are attached to the fan.

ANSWER:
The fan hangs down 8". The 4-light fixture adds 3". The glass will add another 4" or so, putting the overall distance from the ceiling at about 18" to the bottom of the glass. In this case, you are better off purchasing a fan that has a built-in light fixture...regardless of whether it is a hugger or not, most fans with integrated lights hang down less than this. I would seriously consider looking at the Minka Aire Concept II fans which have a superior motor and will hang down just over 10" with a light. Here is a link: Concept II Hugger

QUESTION:
what is the length of the down rod in relation to the height of the ceiling?

ANSWER:
Depends on the fan and room. Ceiling fans perform best when the blades are 7 to 8 feet from the floor. But this is not always practical, and in some rooms may not be visually appealing. In general, it would go this way. 8-9 foot ceilling...no downrod (use hardware supplied with fan). Anything over 9 feet hight, add 1 foot for each foot over 9 feet. 6 feet is the longest length downrod sold by all brands except for Casablanca Fan Company, who makes downrods up to 10 feet long, so for ceilings over 15 feet, you have the option of purchasing a Casablanca fan with a longer downrod, or in some cases, you can purchase a downrod coupler, which will allow you to join two downrods together. Otherwise, you will be limited to the 6 foot pole the manufacturer makes if they do not make a coupler.

You will not find fans in this size with very large motors, so I would suggest you simply look at the airflow ratings we give the fans. Generally, the best is a 153mm motor for fans of this size, I do not believe there are any 36" fans with motors larger than that. The combination of motor size, blade pitch, blade size, RPM, and blade style are what we look at when giving our fans their ratings, so every fan is looked at differently.
