This makes the new DC Panama an excellent choice for those looking for the most efficient alternative.

Can I operate more than 1 fan from a single remote? Although it is possible to operate multiple ceiling fans from a single remote control, we do NOT recommend it with any brand. Doing so can cause your fans to get out of sync (one off and the other on, or one on high and the other on low) and getting them back in sync becomes quite a challenge. To avoid frustration, be sure to operate each fan from its own designated remote control.
Low, High or Vaulted Ceiling Installation Options
Minimum Ceiling Height Requirement: This fan requires a minimum ceiling height of at least 94.75" in order to meet building codes. If your ceiling is lower than 94.75" then you may need to add a flushmount adapter or close to ceiling dowrod if one is available for the fan (see below).

Casablanca DC Panama 6 Speed Ceiling Fan Comparison Review
How does the Casablanca DC Panama 6 Speed Compare to the Average Ceiling Fan?
Quality Rating = 5 (average is 3)
With a Quality Rating of 5, the Casablanca DC Panama 6 Speed is among the finest quality ceiling fans made. It will run smooth and quiet without wobbling or making noise and you can let it run
24 hours a day for years on end without any worries of the motor burning out.
Airflow = 6416 CFM (average is about 5755)
6416 CFM is a good amount of aiflow and is above average. We highly recommend ceiling fans that
move at least this amount of air in order to provide enough wind chill effect to keep you cool.
the Casablanca DC Panama 6 Speed will allow you to raise your thermostat by several degrees, which will help you save additional money on your cooling bills.
Efficiency Rating = 200 CFM/Watt (average is about 86)
An Efficiency Rating of 200 is
extremely efficient and considered environmentally friendly by our standards (over 200 CFM/Watt).
Efficiency is defined by the EPA as the amount of airflow a fan produces (CFM) divided by the amount of
electricity (Watts) it uses on high speed without any lights on. Efficiency is less important than Airflow because more
CFMs allow you to raise your thermostat higher...which is where you will save the most energy. Efficiency becomes more important if
you expect to operate several ceiling fans at the same time. (see calculator below)
Electrical Usage = 32 Watts (average is about 76)
32 Watts per hour is
"Extremely Low", which is fantastic because the Casablanca DC Panama 6 Speed will cost almost nothing to operate compared to other ceiling fans.
Use the calculator below to estimate just how much it will cost to operate this fan in "Your home".
CFM -vs- Efficiency: CFM is KING! It is more important to buy a fan with higher CFMs than it is to buy a fan that uses less electricity. The highest wattage consumed by the most energy guzzling ceiling fan on our website is about 120 watts. So if you input 120 as the fan watts and run our calculator, you will see that it still costs less than 2 cents per hour to operate the most energy guzzling ceiling fan in most states.
You will get more savings with a higher CFM fan than a lower Wattage fan because if your fan moves more air
you will be able to raise your thermostat to a higher degree. Raising your thermostat by 10 degrees can save you up to 40% on your cooling bills. Choosing a less powerful fan because it uses less electricity can be the worst mistake you can make because it will not cool you off enough to allow you to raise your thermostat to a high enough level without becoming uncomfortable. This is why CFM is so much more important to consider than Wattage.
