Shown in Picture: Fanimation The Caruso Ceiling Fan Model FP7000OB in Oil-Rubbed Bronze. Shown with optional CABPP4BR composite palm brown/red finished blades (sold separately). Comes with 3-Speed fan-only slide control for Palisades fans only (white). 2-wire installation (1 hot). Get lost in the cool breezes of the Tropics with the Fanimation Caruso, a uniquely tropical styled ceiling fan of the finest quality. The Caruso takes dual head ceiling fans to a different level by allowing you to set the position of the fan heads to different angles ranging from vertical to 60 degrees. Design your own style Caruso by choose from a variety of traditional or tropical style fan blades. You can even add a light fixture to the center of the fan or on each end for added function and style.
This graph makes it easy to compare features between fans. Pay particular attention to the "Breeze Rating" and "MPH or Wind Speed Factor" which give you the best idea of how much cooling effect you might expect from this fan.

This ceiling fan can be installed on ceilings that are 8 or 9 feet high and can be angled up to 30 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 30 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 95" in order to meet building codes. If your ceiling is lower than 95" 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 30 and up to 45 degrees. Not needed for ceilings angled 30 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.
To calculate the length of downrod that you need to get as close to 7 feet from the floor as possible (but not lower), first you must look at the dimensions of the fan to determine how far from the ceiling the blades will hang using the standard mounting hardware. In most cases, the hardware that a ceiling fan ships with is all you need for an 8 or 9 foot high ceiling...but be sure to double check the distance a fan hangs from the ceiling because some fans hang down more than 18" and will require at least a 9 or 10 foot ceiling.
Once you know how far the fan hangs with the standard mounting hardware you can calculate how far it will hang with a longer downrod by subtracting the length of the standard downrod from the length of a longer downrod. Add that length to the distance the fan normally hangs from the ceiling to determine how far down your fan will hang with any particular downrod length. If you do not know the length of the downrod that is included with you can figure that 4" is about average.
If none of the dimensions you need to make your calculation are not shown on our website, then please call us to have someone help you choose the correct downrod.
Here is an example of the calculation:
If a fan comes with a standard 4 1/2" downrod, a 12" downrod would make the fan hang 12" - 4 1/2" further from the ceiling...or 7 1/2" further. So if the fan normally hangs 12" from the ceiling with a 4 1/2" downrod, it would hang 17 1/2" (12" + 7 1/2") from the ceiling. So if you want the fan to hang as close to 84" from the floor, then do the math to calculate the longest downrod you can use to get closest to 84" without going past 84".
This fan will hange from flat ceilings and ceilings angled up to 30 degrees using the hardware that comes in the box. If your ceiling is over 30 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.

Finding a place that provices great service is equally important, but more difficult to accomplish without interacting with someone.
Although the Internet makes it easy to compare prices, it does little to ensure you are going to get good service. Ultimately, our goal is to offer you both the
Best Price and the Best Service, a claim that most companies make but few can live up to.
If you are like most consumers, claims regarding great customer service are empty words until proven otherwise. So, initially, you begin searching for the site with the
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.
The bottom line is, if you have found a better price on this item, please give us a call.
We will appreciate being given the opportunity to match or beat it if possible and, in the process, give you a chance to experience our excellent customer service!
Find a better price even after you buy your fan and we'll refund the difference!
Don't worry, if you find this exact same for less after you make your purchase!
Our Low Price Guarantee not only applies to the time at which you purchase your fan. If you EVER find a better price after you purchase this fan from us,
we will REFUND THE DIFFERENCE based on our Price Guarantee Guidelines!
The one thing that we are most proud of and sets us aside from our competition is our professional customer service. After being in the ceiling fan business for
over 30 years, we have learned many valuable lessons and certainly gained a level of expertese not shared by many.
However, knowledge is one thing...customer satisfaction is another.
We know that the main reason we have survived all of these years is because of our dedication to making
sure every one of our customers has a great experience dealing with us. This is not something we had to learn, it is just what we have always done.
