Minka Aire Concept I 52 Wet Ceiling Fan
Shown in picture: Minka Aire Concept I 52 Wet Ceiling Fan Model F577-ORB in Oil Rubbed Bronze. The light fixture and Taupe finished blades are included as shown. The light fixture uses 1-100W Mini-Can Halogen (bulbs included).**. A bottom cap is included so you can install the fan with or without the light. Comes with The WC212 AireControl® Full Function Wall Control featuring 3 speeds in forward and reverse as well as a full range light dimmer. Requires just 2 wires for installation (1 hot wire). A receiver unit also comes with the fan that is compatible with the optional RC212 remote control (sold separately), should you decide to operate the fan from a hand held remote control or use both the included wall control and optional remote control together.
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.
FREE REPLACEMENT GLASS: If you purchased your fan from us in the past 5 years (on or after March 31st 2009) and have broken your glass, we may replace it FREE OF CHARGE based on our 5 Year FREE Replacement Parts Plan. 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.
How does the Minka Aire Concept I 52 Wet Compare to the Average Ceiling Fan?
Wind Speed: 4.85 MPH (427.18 LFM)
(Graph represents 52" blade span)
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 | Wind Speed = 4.85 MPH.
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 4.85 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 Minka Aire Concept I 52 Wet 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 = 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.

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.
