"Every Day is EARTH DAY when you own an Emerson Eco Fan"
The Emerson Carrera Grand ECO is the second generation of Eco ceiling fans from Emerson. These super energy efficient ceiling fans are ENERGY STAR qualified and incorporate the revolutionary DC powered EcoMotor from Emerson that set a new standard for quality and energy efficiency. Over 3 times more efficient than most other ceiling fans, the Carrera Grande Eco is among the Greenest Ceiling Fans on the Planet. This amazing fan moves over 7,100 Cubic Feet of Air per Minute while consuming only 22 watts of electricity (with 60" blades), which means it moves more air with a fraction of the electricity a typical ceiling fan uses. This is an unprecedented breakthrough in ceiling fan technology far exceeding the standards set for ENERGY STAR Qualification by the Department of Energy (DOE). If you were to replace all of the ceiling fans in your home with the Carrera Grande Eco, you will use less than half the amount of electricity you are currently using if you have ceiling fans in your home. The Carrera Grande Eco is available in your choice of 54", 60" and 72" blade spans depending on the blades that you select.
Damp Rated: The Carrera Grande Eco is Damp rated, but only the B77 (54"), B78 (60") or B79 (72") series blades are recommended for use in damp locations.
Important Note: The Carrera Grande Eco ceiling fan IS Damp rated if purchased with the blades that are shown. Some of the other blade options are not damp rated, so if you plan to install this fan outdoors, make sure you stick with these blades or choose others that are damp rated.

Emerson Carrera Grande Eco 60 (DC Motor) Ceiling Fan Comparison Review
How does the Emerson Carrera Grande Eco 60 (DC Motor) Compare to the Average Ceiling Fan?
Eco Friendly Ceiling Fan
Performance Comparison Graph
Quality Rating = 5 (average is 3)
With a Quality Rating of 5, the Emerson Carrera Grande Eco 60 (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.
Airflow = 7184 CFM (average is about 5755)
7184 CFM is a lot of airflow and is far above average, which is very good news if you want a ceiling fan
that can really cool you off. Fans like this will allow you to raise your thermostat by up to 10 degrees, which can save you as much as 40% on your cooling bills.
By doing so, it is possible that the Emerson Carrera Grande Eco 60 (DC Motor) may pay for itself during the first year of operation depending on the normal cost to run your air conditioning.
Efficiency Rating = 359 CFM/Watt (average is about 86)
An Efficiency Rating of 359 is
in the "WOW" range of super efficient making the Emerson Carrera Grande Eco 60 (DC Motor) one of the most environmentally friendly ceiling fans ever made.
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 = 20 Watts (average is about 76)
20 Watts per hour is
"Extremely Low", which is fantastic because the Emerson Carrera Grande Eco 60 (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".
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.
