Low, High or Vaulted Ceiling Installation Options

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.

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.

Editors Review

How does the Hunter The Osprey Compare to the Average Ceiling Fan?

3
7,037
101
70
NA
Graph represents " blade span

Quality Rating = 3 (average is 3)
A Quality Rating of 3 is average. Fans with this rating are decent quality, but not the best. Although the Hunter The Osprey ceiling fan will run smooth and quiet at the low and medium speeds, they may not operate as perfectly on high speed as fans rated 4 or 5 and may need more balancing during installation.

Airflow = 7037 CFM (average is about 5755)
7037 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 Hunter The Osprey may pay for itself during the first year of operation depending on the normal cost to run your air conditioning.

Efficiency Rating = 101 CFM/Watt (average is about 86)
An Efficiency Rating of 101 is well above average. 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 = 70 Watts (average is about 76)
70 Watts per hour is pretty close to average, so it will cost about the same to operate the Hunter The Osprey as most other ceiling fans. Use the calculator below to estimate just how much it will cost to operate this fan in "Your home".

Wind Speed Factor -vs- Efficiency: Wind Speed is KING! Ceiling fans can save you a lot on your energy bills if you use them properly to reduce your use of central air. Ceiling fans cool you off by creating a wind-chill effect, so the more wind speed a fan generates, the cooler it will make you feel. The cooler your ceiling fan can make you feel, the higher you can raise your AC thermostat to conserve energy without sacrificing your level of comfort. Raising your thermostat by 10 degrees can save you up to 40% on your cooling bills, but you cannot raise your thermostat by 10 degrees if you focus only on ceiling fans that use less energy rather than ones that generate higher wind speed. To put this in perspective: A typical central air system uses about 3500 Watts when it is running, so if a ceiling fan that uses 100 watts allows you to raise your thermostat a couple degrees higher than a more "efficient" fan that uses only 50 watts, the savings you will get by raising your AC therestat a couple degrees higher is far more than the difference of 50 watts between the two fans. With that said, a ceiling fan that uses less watts yet produces higher wind speed is a win-win.

Fan Size -vs- Wind Speed -vs- CFM

"When it comes to ceiling fan size...the largest fan with the highest wind speed that will look fine in the area is the best choice!"

Ceiling fans cool you off by creating a wind-chill effect, the degree of which is determined by the wind speed produced by the fan; the higher the wind speed, the cooler you feel. It is critical to know the following; CFM is not the same as wind speed; the wind chill effect you feel from a ceiling fan is concentrated in the column of air directly beneath the fan blades; the wind chill drops off dramatically just a foot or two outside that area.

Ceiling fan manufacturers are required by the DOE to publish the airflow of each fan in CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute) which is not the same as wind speed. CFM is the volume of air being moved every minute, whereas wind speed how fast the air is moving in MPH (Miles per Hour) or LFM (Linear Feet per Minute), both of which are directly related to the amount of wind chill effect. When you compare two fans that are different sizes yet have the same CFM you will find they produce quite different wind speeds. The smaller fan must move air faster in order to move the same amount of air per minute (CFM) as the larger fan. The airflow generated by the smaller creates more wind chill because it is more concentrated and has a higher wind speed. The larger fan of equal CFM moves air over a larger area so it is less concentrated at a lower wind speed. So when determining what size fan to buy you must consider the amount of space a fan will cover (the diameter of the fan plus a foot or two), the intensity of the airflow directly beneath the fan (the wind speed) balanced with how any particular size fan will look or fit in the space. Ultimately the largest fan with the highest wind speed that will look fine in the area is the best choice for performance. Read More...

    QUESTION: Do you carry ceiling fans that just plug into an outlet without any electric wiring to be done ?

    ANSWER: There are no such ceiling fans made anymore. Current building codes require that all ceiling fans be hard wired to a junction box. When people install a ceiling fan using a swag kit (chain with a cord) that plugs into an outlet, they are doing this on their own and violating building code standards. The proper way to install a ceiling fan in a room where there is no ceiling junction box is to hire an electrician to run the wires and install a box. You will be surprised to find that a good electrician can do this in almost any situation...even if there is no attic or crawl space.

    QUESTION: does this fan have a light that comes with it?

    ANSWER: No it does not. It was designed more specifically for industrial applications such as warehouses where lights are rarely used on fans.
