WHat are the CFM compared to the Keistone?
Answer: "The 60" Fanimation Keistone produces 6,466 CFM while the 60" Fanimation Landan produces 6134 CFM. They both have super efficient DC motors, so they use very little electricity. The Landan is ENERGY STAR qualified and the Keistone is not. All in all either fan is a great choice. I will note that the Keistone is also available in a 72" version, which provides 8,895 CFM and is even more energy efficient, so if you have a very large room, this might be the best choice.
Here is a page that compares the specifications of all 3 of these fans side by side: Compare the Keistone to the Landan."

Can you get the Casablanca Stealth Ceiling Fan Model 3268Z with an IR sensor for the remote instead of a radio frequency?
I am looking for a high performance ceiling fan (DC Motor or comparable) at least 54 inch or larger diameter in a graphite or rubbed bronze color that will work with an IR all in one remote. I would also prefer an uplight and downlight feature. I like the look of the above mentioned fan with metal and wood combination but a clean sleek look to it.
Answer: "Casablanca does not make any remote controls that use infrared light. As a matter of fact, almost all ceiling fan remote controls now use radio frequency due to the unreliability if IR remotes as well as the short range in which they operate. In the past, it was difficult to get an IR remote to work consistently because you had to aim it just right. The radio frequency remote controls used today do not have to be aimed and work from over 2 times the distance. The only problem with RF remotes is that sometimes there are conflicts between the frequency of the remote and that of other devices in the home...or even a neighbor. Because the frequency can be changed, these problems are usually easily solved.
Was there a particular reason why you want an IR remote instead of an RF remote?

my home is 10 yrs old and we have been changing all fans to antique brass. in our master bath there are 2 existing lites, the jboxes SEEM to be only nailed,supported from one side so my first install seems to lean...question, is there a easy fix to get support to the other joist for the other side of the jbox without having to cut up sheetrock ? its the bottom floor of 2 story.
Answer: "You can use an adjustable fan brace. To install one, you would remove the junction box from below. Insert the brace into the ceiling through the hole where the j-box was. Twist it so that it expands until it is wedged between the 2 joists. Use the bracket that comes with the fan brace to attach the junction box to the brace and then install your fan. There are a couple braces to choose from and here are the links:

What are other comparable fans that are WET rated and 52" or larger? Looking to stay around 200 bucks but want to see alternatives. Does this Carrera veranda fan come with a warranty? We don't know Emerson very well so are looking for alternatives. Thanks!
Answer: "Here is a link to our selection of Outdoor Wet Rated Ceiling Fans. You can use the filters on the left side of the page to narrow down your choices based on size, finish and style. The default sort is by highest quality and performance, so you will automatically see the models we recommend first (within the top 20 results). If you want specific advice, please call us and we will be happy to go through the various options and compare them for you. If you want specific advice, please call us and we will be happy to go through the various options and compare them for you.
FYI: The Carrera Veranda is a fantastic outdoor wet rated ceiling fan. Great quality and performance, making it one of your best choices in this price range. Emerson Electric is one of the oldest ceiling fan manufacturers having started making ceiling fans in the USA in 1895, just a few years after Hunter. They make a much higher quality product than most other ceiling fan manufacturers and are only sold at ceiling fan specialty shops rather than mass merchants, which is why they are less recognized by the average consumer.

Can this fan be operated with remotee control? Can it be added at a later date? Will it accept a extention from a old hunter unit IE 24 year old cast motor type? thanks Chuck
Answer: "Yes, you can add a remote control to the Hunter Paramount XP. I would recommend buying a new downrod since there have been changes in the way they are threaded and attached over the years. You can select the downrod and remote by clicking on the appropriate orange buttons below the picture of the fan on the product detail page where it says "Choose custom options here"."

I want a ceiling fan overhead of my bed to be able to feel the air blowing on the bed... is a 52" fan for "up to 20X20 rooms" not going to do that but rather blow air outside of the blade radius? Or will it work? My room is in the 13"X15" range.
Answer: "A 52" ceiling fan will work just fine if it is installed directly above the bed...or very close to that. The majority of airflow that you feel from a ceiling fan is in the column of air directly beneath the fan that is the diameter of the blade span. The further away from that column of air you get, the less air you feel (dramatically). Your room is about the same size as my bedroom and I have a 52" fan installed just over the foot of the bed and it works perfectly. Just make sure you buy a good quality fan that has an airflow rating over 6,000 CFM and you will be quite satisfied. BTW, a 52" fan is too small for a 20 x 20 room. A room that size should be using a 60" to 72" fan."

Is it correct when turning on a ceiling fan, if you want the slowest setting too select the fastest first let the fan build up some speed then turn the ceiling fan down too the slower setting. I believe that turning the fan too the slowest setting first will labour and stress the motor. thank you.
Answer: "It does not matter whether you start your ceiling fan on the highest or lowest setting, providing you have a quality ceiling fan. Cheaper fans from home centers may wear out if they are always started on the lowest setting, but we have had no issues with the fans we sell starting them in this manner. As a matter of fact, some of our fans are actually set up to start on the lowest speed."

I am interested in buying (2) minka air flyte F531-L-BN-MG fans to be used side by side in the same room.
Will (1) wall control transmitter control both fans if all 16 set code combinations are the same on the
transmitter and both receivers?
Answer: "It is possible to operate 2 fans from a single wall control, but not recommended by us or the manufacturer. The reason is that the transmitters only operate between 30 and 40 feet from the fan and as you get further away, the less reliable the communication will be between the transmitter and receiver. The odds are that your fans will become out of sync and you will end up quite frustrated trying to turn them both on and off at the same time. My suggestion would be to purchase separate remote controls for each fan so that you can operate them independently with no frustration. This way you do not have to wire an additional wall control for the second fan."

Can i use any light fixture kit on my hunter celing fan?
Answer: "No, Hunter has their own way of mounting light fixtures to their fans, so other brands will not fit. The finishes rarely match either.
You will need to purchase a Hunter fixture for your Hunter fan. But also, you must be sure that Hunter even makes fixtures that fit your particular model. Do you know the model number of the fan you own? If so, let me know and I'll see if I canít check to see what fits your fan. Or try emailing me some pictures of your fan. Email to: email@example.com

Are downroads interchangeable across brands. We will replace (ordering soon) some old hunters with the Minka aire I52 and are hoping to keep the original downrods. Colors match, but I wonder about diameters and threads.
Answer: "No, downrods are not typically interchangeable between brands...and particularly between Hunter and other brands. Yes, the threads and diameter are different, as well as the drilled holes and location of the holes that are used to mount the fan to the pole. You will need to purchase a new downrod and use it along with all of the mounting hardware that comes with the Minka Aire fan."

Need advice to remove ceiling fan Casablanca Model No. CB 184440 from the ceiling. The fan is so tight to the ceiling I cannot get a screwdriver between the fan to get to a slot in the cover that is against the ceiling. I can see a screw in the slot but cannot get to it. Do I have to take the fan apart? Or what?
Answer: "Not sure what model of Casablanca fan you have since the model number you supplied is not a Casablanca model number. Regardless, my suggestion is that you tilt the fan away from you as you attempt to remove the screw. The fan sits in a ball that can rotate up to 30 degrees when you push on it. Be careful not to bend the blade irons by pushing on the blades. I would remove the blades first for that matter to make it easier. Also, it is best if you use a very short phillips head screwdriver.
If you email me some pictures of your fan, I will most likely recognize it and may be able to offer a different tip, or at least confirm that my advice was correct. Email pictures to: firstname.lastname@example.org

For some unknown reeason my fan blades are now turning in the reverse mode. I do not have a remote control for the fan. I have a wall dial setting to run the fan. It has been installed for 3 years now and was always turning in the forward mode to move air downward. I have tried to locate the switch on the motor housing but can not find it without taking the whole fan down. Can you tell me where the switch is? Is it possible the TV remote had an effect on the change of direction
Answer: "I need to know the brand and model number of your ceiling fan to be of much help. That info should be located on a label that is on the top of your fan. Also, if you can email me some pictures of your fan, it will help. Email pictures to: email@example.com"

I love your website, it is so informative and I have used it to purchase the Emerson Eco Midway earlier this year for my home. I am now helping my brother set up a couple of restaurants and wanted some advice on commercial ceiling fans. Are their any obvious differences and what should I be looking for?
Answer: "There are not really any "Commercial" ceiling fans. There are what you would call "Industrial" ceiling fans, but those are used in very large open areas such as manufacturing facilities and warehouses. Most restaurants do not use industrial ceiling fans, but rather choose the types of fans you see on our website with all. Most restaurants that we deal with choose higher quality fans that have a particular style and finish that fits their decorative theme. When searching our website, the default sort results will put the higher quality models first, making it easy to find them.
Can you email me some pictures of the restaurant? I'll be happy to offer some suggestions, or forward your response to one of other ceiling fan experts who can take you through the decision making process. Email your pictures to: firstname.lastname@example.org

Hi. Is the minimum height 24"? I see that you have 3 different drive rod lengths mentioned, but I only saw 24" and 36". We have an 11 x 11 room with a 9 foot ceiling. We would be going with the 18" blades to make the size 44". If you had a shorter drive rod might that work? Thanks!
Answer: "The 24" version (with the 9" rod) is the shortest version available and is designed for ceilings at least 9 feet high. This puts the blades at just a little over 7 feet from the floor, which meets building codes.
The mention of 3 different rod sizes was incorrect. Emerson actually had a longer model (48") in the past that was discontinued, but we failed to change the description on our site. My apologies...seeing as I am the webmaster and am responsible for such changes. I have made the correction so future visitors will not be confused.

I just bought a 44" MinkaAire Concept II fan and meant to get the 52" fan. Do you sell only the blades? And, will the 52" blades fit the 44" fan? thanks!
Answer: "We do sell the blades separately. However, the 52" concept II fans have a larger motor which is designed to accommodate the larger blades. If you put the larger blades on the small 44" motor, it will not operate properly and most likely burn out because it is not designed to handle the additional torque. So changing out the blades is not a viable solution. If you purchased the fan from us, simply give our customer service department a call so you can arrange to exchange your fan."

Your website is THEE MOST informative and helpful and once I narrow my decision I will happily be purchasing my fan from you. I am between the Hunter Classic original, the Emerson Premium and the Emerson Carrera Crande DC. All have various pluses and minuses for my application. I would like to know how much risk of oil leakage the Hunter poses..?
Answer: "I have been in the ceiling fan business for over 25 years and during that time have never had a custom report that oil leaked from their Hunter Original ceiling fan other than when they took it down and moved it. You just need to be careful not to tip the fan too much when there is oil in it. Once installed, it won't leak."

Answer: "Sorry, we do not carry any replacement parts for Hampton Bay ceiling fans. Hampton Bay fans are sold only by Home Depot, it is their own house brand.
