Customer Note: Review - I wanted to let you know that my new construction was just completed and I'm VERY pleased with the Emerson Carrera Grande Eco fan. It looks beautiful and it runs smoothly and quietly. I will say the pewter finish is much darker than I expected but still lovely. As for Hansen, I appreciate the abundance of information on your site. I got confused when I started an online order so I called. Terry was so helpful and friendly. I felt confident when I got off the phone.

The Emerson Carrera Grande Eco 72 (DC Motor) ceiling fan has been selected by the EPA as "ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient", which is a new program that identifies and advances highly efficient products in the marketplace. This designation has been given to a hand full of fans that far exceed ENERGY STAR standards. Using 75% less electricity than other fans, this fan can cost less than $10.00/year to operate!
This ceiling fan can be installed on ceilings that are 8 or 9 feet high and can be angled up to 26 degrees without the need for any additional
mounting hardware, so what is in the box will be sufficient. If you have a high ceiling or vaulted ceiling that is angled more than 26 degrees (or both),
you may need a downrod or angled ceiling adapter in order to install your fan.
Minimum Ceiling Height Requirement: This fan requires a minimum ceiling height of at least 97" in order to meet building codes. If your ceiling is lower than 97" then you may need to add a flushmount adapter or close to ceiling dowrod if one is available for the fan (see below).
If you cannot find what you need to make this fan work in your room, please give us a call so we can check to see if there are any further alternatives.
Angled Ceiling Kit - Required for ceilings angled more than 26 and up to 45 degrees. Not needed for ceilings angled 26 degrees or less (or flat). Ceilings angled more than 45 will require a box framed into the ceiling to flatten the surface where the fan is to be installed.
Building codes require ceiling fans to be installed with the blades no lower than 7 feet from the floor in residential applications (industrial fans may require more distnace). The closer you are to the fan blades, the more cooling effect you will feel, so 7 feet is the optimal distance from the floor for most residential ceiling fans to get the most benefit.
Any light fixture you choose to add to this fan is allowed to be less than 7 feet from the floor, so just make sure you have enough headroom to walk under it if need be.
The downrod included with the Emerson Carrera Grande Eco 72 (DC Motor) ceiling fan is 4.5", which puts the blades 13" from the ceiling. Here are the Minimum Ceiling Heights required for each downrod available for this fan. Each length will put the fan blades 7 feet from the floor, so if you want your fan blades higher than 7 feet, choose a shorter downrod to fit your needs.
2.5" Downrod for 7.92' ceilings (blades 11" from ceiling)
12" Downrod for 8.71' ceilings (blades 20.5" from ceiling)
18" Downrod for 9.21' ceilings (blades 26.5" from ceiling)
24" Downrod for 9.71' ceilings (blades 32.5" from ceiling)
36" Downrod for 10.71' ceilings (blades 44.5" from ceiling)
48" Downrod for 11.71' ceilings (blades 56.5" from ceiling)
60" Downrod for 12.71' ceilings (blades 68.5" from ceiling)
70" Downrod for 13.54' ceilings (blades 78.5" from ceiling)
This fan will hange from flat ceilings and ceilings angled up to 26 degrees using the hardware that comes in the box. If your ceiling is over 26 degrees, you can by an Angled Ceiling Adapter that will allow you to install the fan on a ceiling angled up to 45.
Ceiling Angle Calculator
How to measure Rise:
Rise is the vertical distance your ceiling rises for every horizontal foot. Rise per foot is called Pitch. A roof with a 4/12 pitch rises 4 inches vertically for every 12 inches horizontal.
Our calculator uses roof pitch to calculate the angle of your ceiling. Since we already know the horizontal measurement is 12", we only need you to enter in the vertical rise to make the calculation.
To measure the rise of your ceiling: Hold a 12" ruler ruler horizontally (using a level) with one corner touching the ceiling. Then take measure the vertical distance from the other end of the ruler to the ceiling. This is the rise. Select your dimensions in the form above to calculate the angle of your ceiling. Most ceiling fans (except for hugger fans) can hang on ceilings angled up to 30 degrees without
the need for an angled ceiling adapter. 30 degrees is slightly less than a 7/12 pitch. Most angled ceiling adapters will allow your fan to hang up to 45 degress...which is a 12/12 pitch.
The Emerson Carrera Grande Eco 72 (DC Motor) is UL Listed for Outdoor Damp Locations, which means the fan is rated for indoor or outoor use in covered areas where there is excessive moisture, but not direct exposure to rain or sprinklers. It's great for fully covered patios and porches or screened enclosures. All outdoor ceiling fans can also be installed inside your house, so they are also great for bathrooms and laundry rooms or any other room inside your home. NOTE: Certain blade options may not be suitable for use in outdoor damp locations. Make sure the blades you choose are suitable for your location.
Quality Rating = 5 (average is 3)
With a Quality Rating of 5, the Emerson Carrera Grande Eco 72 (DC Motor) 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.
Electrical Usage = 29 Watts (average is about 76)
29 Watts per hour is
"Extremely Low", which is fantastic because the Emerson Carrera Grande Eco 72 (DC Motor) 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".
Basic Help: Our operational cost calculator estimates how much it will cost to operate the Emerson Carrera Grande Eco 72 (DC Motor) ceiling fan. By default, the calculator assumes that you will leave your fan running 24 hours a day for the entire year (which is not very likely to be accurate), so you will want to change the hours and days to be more in line with how often you think you will use the fan. The calculator also defaults to the average cost per kWh of electricity in the USA. You can change this to use the average cost of electricity in your state, although this may vary widely from city to city. For the most accurate calculation, manually enter the actual cost/kWh shown on your utility bill.
The wattage of the fan is already included (if it is known), but you can change it if you wish to see how the wattage affects the cost.
Fans with lights: Calculations are performed without lights by default. If you add a light fixture to the fan, you can add the wattage of the fixture to the wattage of the fan to perform calculations with the lights on. In some cases, when a light fixture of known wattage is included with the fan, the option to calculate with or without lights will show automatically. The light fixture on a ceiling fan almost always uses substantially more electricity than the fan motor, so it is very important to take that into account when comparing the overall operational cost between various ceiling fans
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.
When comparing fans of different sizes with varying CFMs, it is important to consider the wind speed in order to know which fans will make you feel cooler. Read more about Ceiling Fan Wind Speed here!
The average kWh by state used by our calculator is derived from information published by the
US Government Department of Energy as of May 2009.
Your actual cost may differ from this. Again, refer to your utility bill for your most recent kWh cost.

lowest price because it is so easy to compare prices online. But prices are fickle. They can change from site to site at any given moment, whereas
customer service typically remains constant. Either a site offers great service or it doesn't.
We are not hiding anything here. We know that the prices we have on our website may or may not be lowest you can find at any given moment. However, if you call us,
we have the distinct advantage of being able to make price adjustments when possible.

QUESTION: We have a living room with walls that are about 11 feet high with a vaulted ceiling the peak of which is 16 feet above the floor. What height above the floor should the ceiling fan be mounted. We will be using it in the summer for cooling as well as in the winter to bring the warm air down. We havent decided on the fan diameter yet, probably in the 60-72" range. We will most likely be buying an Emererson Eco fan. Thanks.
ANSWER: I would recommend using a 6 foot downrod to bring the fan down a little less than 10 feet from the floor. A 72" Emerson Eco fan should be great for this application if the room is around 15 feet x 15 feet or more. If it is really large, over 20 feet...you should consider using 2 60" fans with 6 foot poles. Below is a link back to the Carrera Grande Eco in Antique Pewter with 72" blades. You can actually select any of the Carrera Grande Eco fans regardless of size and then change the blades that are pictured to any of the 72" blades by clicking on the orange Blades button, so you are not limited to just the brushed nickel finish to create a 72" fan.

QUESTION: Happy New Year!
We are looking to improve lighting and circulation in a large open living space with an asymmetric cathedral ceiling. We interested in the Emerson Carrera Eco in pewter and wondered what you recommend for blade size and the lighting option that would provide the most light. With new restrictions on the wattage for lighting sold with a ceiling fan, in order to maximize is it better to purchase a universal lighting kit? Are ones available that will match the finish?
ANSWER: The Emerson Carrera Eco is an excellent choice for large rooms. If the room is more than 15 x 15 I would use the 72" blades. If it is more than 15 x 20 I would use two 60" fans. Choose the 4-light fixture model F450 (F450AP if you choose the AP finish fan). It comes with 4-13 watt medium base CFL bulbs but you can replace them with 60 watt incandescent bulbs (if you can find them) to get maximum light, or higher wattage CFLs. This will give you the most light you can get from a ceiling fan under the new standards. Here is a link back to the fan with the blades you already selected and the F450AB fixture that I recommend. You will need to click on the orange "Glass" button to choose the glass shades for the fixture: 72" Emerson Carrera Grande Eco with 4-lights
Emerson offers 50 different blade options for the Carrera Grande Eco fan in various shapes and lengths. In order to say the fan is Energy Star qualified with every blade option, they would have to test it with each blade and then pay additional fees to the government for the Energy Star label with each different blade option. Needless to say, the testing and application fees are astronomical and the red tape is an additional burden. The additional costs would drive up the price of the fan significantly without any added benefit except for a label that says it is Energy Star qualified. As tested with 60" blades, the fan more than quadruples the necessary efficiency required by the EPA for Energy Star. So even though it does not bare the label with 72" blades, you can rest assured that it is 3 to 4 more efficient than most other fans that are Energy Star.
