Description
Shown in picture: (This fan is discontinued) Minka Aire Big Sky Ceiling Fan Model F612-DKG in Distressed Koa with Gold Highlights. The light fixture and Dark Walnut finished blades are included as shown. The light fixture uses 2-13W GU-24 CFL Bulbs (Included)**. Comes with Hand Held Remote Control Transmitter with Canopy Mount Receiver and Wall Holster. Requires just 2 wires for installation (1 hot wire). 3 speeds plus a full range light dimmer. (non-reversing - fan must be reversed manually by swtich on motor. Replaces RC221).

The Minka Aire Big Sky ceiling fan is somewhat rustic-transitional-mission-craftsman in style. The beaded detail with straps on the motor housing give it a substantial forged look that is accented by the hand applied finish. Great quality and great performance at a reasonable price make this fan an excellent choice for any average to large size room.

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.

Installation Info

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.

Minimum Ceiling Height Requirement: This fan requires a minimum ceiling height of at least 95.75" in order to meet building codes. If your ceiling is lower than 95.75" 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.

Editors Review

How does the Minka Aire Big Sky Compare to the Average Ceiling Fan?

4
4,547
63
72
NA
(Graph represents " blade span)

Quality Rating = 4 (average is 3)
A Quality Rating of 4 is above average, the Minka Aire Big Sky ceiling fan will run smooth and quiet and will give you many years of operation with no worries of the motor burning out.

Airflow = 4547 CFM (average is about 5755)
4547 CFM is below average, so don't expect to feel much of a breeze from this fan unless you are are pretty close to it. Fans with this low of a CFM rating will not provide enough breeze for larger rooms. If you are concerned about whether or not the Minka Aire Big Sky will move enough air for your needs, please give us a call and we will help you make the determination.

Efficiency Rating = 63 CFM/Watt (average is about 86)
An Efficiency Rating of 63 is below 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 = 72 Watts (average is about 76)
72 Watts per hour is pretty close to average, so it will cost about the same to operate the Minka Aire Big Sky as most other ceiling fans. 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.
