educational articles we have posted online over the last 20+ years. Thanks for choosing Hansen Wholesale!
In a recent article titled "How to: Choose a Ceiling Fan - Bob Vila", the author wrote: "The universe of ceiling fans is amazingly big! Donít settle for the limited selection to be found in brick-and-mortar stores, especially if you need a fan with small blades or a model suited for cathedral or vaulted ceilings. My favorite Web site for ceiling fans is Hansen Wholesale. Think of it as a sort of Consumer Reports. For each product it sells, Hansen offers information on motor quality, CFM (air movement measured in cubic feet per minute) output, energy efficiency and other pertinent data. The ratings graphs show the average rating in each category, so you know immediately how the fan youíre considering stacks up. Hansen also includes an excellent ceiling-fan size calculator."
This calculator is based on the current trend to use Larger fans in Smaller rooms. Based on this new trend, we recommend this: "Choose the largest fan with the highest wind speed that will fit into the space without overwhelming it visually". In rooms larger than 10 x 10, leave 2 to 3 feet from the blades to the shortest wall to determine the largest size we would recommend visually.
Select the dimensions of your room (round to nearest foot)!
Basic Help: Our operational cost calculator estimates how much it will cost to operate the ceiling fan. By default, the calculator assumes that you will leave your fan running 24 hours a day for the entire year (which is not very likely to be accurate), so you will want to change the hours and days to be more in line with how often you think you will use the fan. The calculator also defaults to the average cost per kWh of electricity in the USA. You can change this to use the average cost of electricity in your state, although this may vary widely from city to city. For the most accurate calculation, manually enter the actual cost/kWh shown on your utility bill.
The wattage of the fan is already included (if it is known), but you can change it if you wish to see how the wattage affects the cost.
Fans with lights: Calculations are performed without lights by default. If you add a light fixture to the fan, you can add the wattage of the fixture to the wattage of the fan to perform calculations with the lights on. In some cases, when a light fixture of known wattage is included with the fan, the option to calculate with or without lights will show automatically. The light fixture on a ceiling fan almost always uses substantially more electricity than the fan motor, so it is very important to take that into account when comparing the overall operational cost between various ceiling fans
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.
When comparing fans of different sizes with varying CFMs, it is important to consider the wind speed in order to know which fans will make you feel cooler. Read more about Ceiling Fan Wind Speed here!
The average kWh by state used by our calculator is derived from information published by the
US Government Department of Energy as of May 2009.
Your actual cost may differ from this. Again, refer to your utility bill for your most recent kWh cost.
Enter the overall blade span of any fan and click calculate to determine the maximum RPM that any size fan can operate.
Details: Federal regulations limit the maximum RPM at which a ceiling fan safely operate in order to prevent potential bodily harm. The limitations are based on the above 2 blade thicknesses. Blades that are 1/8" thick and less than 3/8" thick must run slower than blades that are 3/8" thick or more. No residential ceiling fans are allowed to have blades less than 1/8" thick. Any ceiling fan that does not meet the maximum RPM requirement cannot be installed less than 10 feet from the floor, or must be enclosed in a cage.

QUESTION: Casablanca Whitman Ceiling Fan Model 59060
Will this fan work with both the wall control and the remote? I do not want to find the remote when just walking out of the bedroom and prefer the wall switch, but would like the ability to use the remote feature while in bed. Do both control the dimmers? Do the dimmers work with the new LED dimmable bulbs?
ANSWER: The Casablanca Whitman fan comes with a wall control. Both the wall control and optional remote control can be used along with each other, so the answer is yes, you can use the remote from your bed and the wall control when you enter or exit the room. Both controls have full function of the fan including the fan speeds, reverse and, yes, dimming for the lights. The fan comes with two 50 watt halogen bulbs. There are currently no LED bulbs that you can buy to replace the halogen bulbs that will provide any more light than a couple of night lights, so it is not practical to use LED lights in this fan. Even if you did, the dimmer function would most likely not work since the wattage of the LED bulbs would be too low for the range of the dimmer. So, unfortunately I would have to say no to your last question.
QUESTION: I am looking at the Emerson Carrera Grande Eco 72 (DC Motor) Ceiling Fan Model CF788VNB, however regarding fan blades for an outdoor-damp location, would these blades tend to warp over a few years in a humid environment? I have had many outdoor fans, and they almost all end up with warped blades over time. Do you offer blades that would be less prone to warping, or are these already "resistant"?
ANSWER: When you click on the orange button for blades, look for blades that say "(Outdoor Damp)". Emerson specially makes the damp rated blades from solid hardwood (instead of cheap plywood) that is treated to resist cracking and warping from being outside. They will hold up much better than what you have experienced and are in fact rated for use in outdoor damp locations by the manufacturer.
QUESTION: I just bought a house with a Halsey ceiling fan and I want to add a light to it. The universal light kit only works sometimes! Where can I find Halsey light kits to fit models HC-HP and HG models?
ANSWER: I am sorry to report that Halsey went out of business several years ago, so finding parts for them is difficult. It is not a brand that we ever sold, so we would not have any fixtures on hand that were made by them. If you email me some pictures of your fan, I may be able to determine what types of universal fixtures will fit...if any. Email pictures to: email@example.com
QUESTION: The location I am considering was wired only for a light and no fan (1 wire pair). How do I tell which lights are compatible and which are not?
ANSWER: Almost all of our ceiling fans with lights do not require a second hot wire, so they will work with a 1 wire pair...there are very few exceptions. If you give us a call, we will be happy to help you choose the best fan for your needs and make sure you can install it.
QUESTION: How far down from the ceiling does the Seaside fan hang when installed with the flushmount option?
ANSWER: Thanks for your question: The Seaside fan from Savoy House comes with an 8" downrod as well as a flush mount adapter. The bottom of the fan cage hangs 16.3" from the ceiling when installed with the 8" downrod. Although the manufacturer does not specify the hanging distance with the flush mount option, after reviewing the installation instructions I have estimated that the flush mount option will reduce the distance by at least 6" to be safe...if not a bit more. That would put the bottom of the fan at about 10" from the ceiling.
QUESTION: I want to purchase the 36" Down rod DR536-CT (Cattera Bronze finish) $25.13 for the Santa Lucia Ceiling Fan I recently purchased from you. However, when I try to select it the website automatically adds the fan too. Please help
ANSWER: Sorry you are having trouble ordering a downrod. Here is what you can do: Simply delete the fan from your shopping cart to order just the downrod or use this link to add the downrod to your cart by itself:
Minka Aire DR536-CT Downrod.
QUESTION: Do you happen to carry Hunter fan light fixtures that have a triangle base. These are not held in by screws but by a clip system.
ANSWER: I am sorry to report that we do not have any of the Hunter light fixtures you are looking for. Hunter only made the triangular fixtures for a short period of time and they discontinued them several years ago (too many problems). It is unlikely that you will be able to locate one anywhere. If you can email me some pictures of your fan along with the model number (located on a label on top of the fan housing), I may be able to come up with an alternative that will fit. Email your pictures to: firstname.lastname@example.org
QUESTION: How powerful is the fan? It will be used in an upstairs room that gets quite warm?
ANSWER: Regarding the Emerson Carrera Grande Eco, it is one of the most powerful and efficient fans we sell. The Emerson ECO fans are some of our most highly recommended fans overall. You will certainly be happy with the airflow compared to fans of lesser caliber. Here is a link where you can Read More Aabout the Emerson Eco Fans.
First off, I love all the consumer information Hansen Wholesale provides.
I'd love a clarification on something. You say that hugger fans don't work as well as regular ceiling fans. This makes total sense. However, why would the Modern Fan Velo Hugger be rated at the same 6650 CFM and 5.54 MPH wind speed as the regular Velo?
(Is it because the blades are installed as low as possible on the hugger fan, thus negating the height benefits?)
ANSWER: You are exactly correct. When installed with a standard downrod, the regular Velo hangs down the same distance as the Velo Hugger, so the airflow is the same.
Per the information on the site, the new DC motors, the Emerson K55XL, and other "induction" type motors are considered best quality. If that's the case, how do fans with smallish non-special motors (Say, Savoy House Indira, with 153 x 22mm motor) earn a 5 rating?
ANSWER: There are exceptions. A 5 rating is not just based on the motor inside the fan, but the overall consideration of the quality of the components and performance. Most 153mm motors are only 12mm to 15mm tall and tend to be overworked. The motor used in the Indra is 22mm tall, which is very unusual. This is a special motor that Savoy House had designed for this fan and the performance and quality of the motor are excellent. The 3-blade Indra produces a whopping 8517 CFM and runs very smooth and quiet. The entire fan was designed to produce maximum airflow while reducing noise. The blades have a very special aerodynamic design and the fan runs perfectly quiet. When I saw this fan introduced at the lighting show in Dallas, I was very impressed. Overall, one of the best fans I have rated in years. A DC motor would have been nice...but was not necessary to earn a 5 in my book.
