The Concept I Wet ceiling fan from Minka Aire is one of our most popular fans. The sleak body style with integrated blades makes it excellent for areas that experience high winds where fans that have blades that are attached with more traditional blade holders are susceptable to breaking off. This fan is so rugged that you can even hose it off when it gets dirty. The fan features the WC212 full function wall mount control system that can also be operated by a hand held remote control (Model RC212 sold separately). The low profile integrated down-light uses 1-100W Mini-Can Halogen light (bulb included) that illuminates throught the white opal glass in the brushed nickel and white models, or the Pietra glass in the Oil Rubbed Bronze model.

MULTIPLE GLASS OPTIONS: If there is more than one replacement glass option and the glass is not specifically referenced to the fan finish, please call us to place your order. This may indicate that the manufacturer may have modified the glass since the first production run. In such cases, we must know the Serial Number of your ceiling fan to determine when it was produced in order to get the correct glass. The serial number can usually be found on a label that is on the top of your fan motor. Please call us with that number.

Please call us so that we can verify that you made your purchase from us and that your glass is in fact broken (email us a picture of your fan and broken glass). Once verified, we will get you a replacement at no charge (just another advantage of buying your ceiling fans here at Hansen Wholesale). *All replacement glass sales are final, no refunds or exchages.
Minka Aire Concept I 52 Wet Ceiling Fan Comparison Review
How does the Minka Aire Concept I 52 Wet Compare to the Average Ceiling Fan?
Quality Rating = 4 (average is 3)
A Quality Rating of 4 is above average, the Minka Aire Concept I 52 Wet ceiling fan will run smooth and quiet and will give you many years of operation with no worries of the motor burning out.
Airflow = 6300 CFM (average is about 5755)
6300 CFM is a good amount of aiflow and is above average. We highly recommend ceiling fans that
move at least this amount of air in order to provide enough wind chill effect to keep you cool.
the Minka Aire Concept I 52 Wet will allow you to raise your thermostat by several degrees, which will help you save additional money on your cooling bills.
Efficiency Rating = 107 CFM/Watt (average is about 86)
An Efficiency Rating of 107 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 = 59 Watts (average is about 76)
59 Watts per hour is
well below average, which is excellent because the Minka Aire Concept I 52 Wet will cost 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.
