Shown in picture: (This fan is discontinued) Kichler 52" Dorset Ceiling Fan Model 300022BKZ in Berkshire Bronze. The light fixture and Reversible Dark Cherry/American Walnut finished blades are included as shown. The light fixture uses 3-40 Watt E-12 Krypton/T3**. Comes with 3-speed CoolTouch hand held remote control. Comes with a wall holster that holds the remote transmitter allowing it to be used as a wall control or hand held remote control. Provides 3 speeds in forward and reverse with a full range light dimmer.
When it comes to flushmount ceiling fans, very few decent quality models are available in a transitional or traditional style. The Kichler is an exception. This very stylish hugger fan comes is not only quite attractive, it actually moves a decent amount of air compared to typical flush mounted fans. Plus, it includes a low profile light fixture and a hand held remote control that has 3 speeds in both forward and reverse and a full range light dimmer. This is an excellent choice for ceilings that are between 7 and 8 feet high.

Can I operate more than 1 fan from a single remote? Although it is possible to operate multiple ceiling fans from a single remote control, we do NOT recommend it with any brand. Doing so can cause your fans to get out of sync (one off and the other on, or one on high and the other on low) and getting them back in sync becomes quite a challenge. To avoid frustration, be sure to operate each fan from its own designated remote control.
Low, High or Vaulted Ceiling Installation Options
This is a Flushmounted ceiling fan, so it cannot be installed on angled ceilings. Flush mount ceiling fans
are designed specifically for rooms with ceilings lower than 8 feet and do not perform well in rooms with higher ceilings.
Indoor and Outdoor Limitations
UL Listed for Indoor use only
The Kichler 52" Dorset is UL Listed for Indoor use only, so it is not designed to be exposed to moisture or harsh elements. Do not install this fan outside your house. It is also not recommended
for bathrooms that have a shower or tub or laundry rooms, both of which produce excessive amounts of moisture.

How does the Kichler 52" Dorset Compare to the Average Ceiling Fan?
Quality Rating = 4 (average is 3)
A Quality Rating of 4 is above average, the Kichler 52" Dorset ceiling fan will run smooth and quiet and will give you many years of operation with no worries of the motor burning out.
Airflow = 5087 CFM | Wind Speed = 3.92 MPH.
5087 CFM is pretty much average, so don't expect a super strong breeze from this fan. However, most people are used to average ceiling fans, so if you have never experienced a fan more powerful than this, you may be satisfied with the Kichler 52" Dorset.
The 3.92 MPH wind speed is a little lower than you might expect with such a high airflow. The wind speed tells you how much breeze you can expect to feel when you are beneath the fan. Due to the blade span of this fan, the actual concentration of airflow is spread over a larger area, so the ultimate cooling effect is a little less than some fans with smaller blade spans. This is a compromise that you may be willing to accept if the actual area where you spend your time is further away from the center of the fan, which is why you may consider a larger fan such as this one. In this case the Kichler 52" Dorset will allow you to raise your thermostat by 1 or 2 degrees, which will still help you save additional money on your cooling bills (if you have AC).
Efficiency Rating = 74 CFM/Watt (average is about 86)
An Efficiency Rating of 74 is
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 = 69 Watts (average is about 76)
69 Watts per hour is
slightly below average, which is a good thing. the Kichler 52" Dorset will cost a little less to operate than the average ceiling fan.
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.

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...

**Light Fixture Note
Important Note: Due to government legislation regarding the efficiency and wattage ceiling fan light fixtures (EPACT 2005) the fixture you receive may use a different bulb than
what is described. This is because most manufacturers have rolling changes in their inventory in order to bring their fixtures into compliance, so there is no way to know which fixture the manufacturer
will ship until all of their old inventory has been depleted. Most fixtures that used Medium Base Bulbs in the past will be changed to use Candelabra Base Bulbs. Also, since the legislation mandates
that the total wattage of a ceiling fan light cannot exceed 190Watts, the maximium wattage of the bulbs may be lowered to meet this criteria and will most likely have a limiting fuse designed to
trigger if you use bulbs that exceed this wattage.
