UL Listed for Indoor use only: The Fanimation Islander (DC Motor) 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.

Downrods

Minimum Ceiling Height Requirement: Building codes require residential ceiling fans to be installed with the blades at least 7 feet from the floor. In order to meet this requirement, this fan requires a minimum ceiling height of at least 101.61". If your ceiling is lower than 101.61" then you may need to add a flushmount adapter or close to ceiling downrod if one is available for the fan (see below). Any light fixture you choose to add to this fan is allowed to be less than 7 feet from the floor, so just make sure you have enough headroom to walk under it if need be. If you cannot find what you need to make this fan work in your room, please give us a call 1-800-201-1193 so we can check to see if there are any further alternatives.

Note: This fan includes 6" downrods(s)

How long of a downrod do I need?

The downrod included with the Fanimation Islander (DC Motor) ceiling fan is 6", which puts the blades 18" from the ceiling. Here are the Minimum Ceiling Heights required for each downrod available for this fan. Each length will put the fan blades 7 feet from the floor, so if you want your fan blades higher than 7 feet, choose a shorter downrod to fit your needs.

How the above calculations are performed

To calculate the length of downrod that you need to get as close to 7 feet from the floor as possible (but not lower), first you must look at the dimensions of the fan to determine how far from the ceiling the blades will hang using the standard mounting hardware. In most cases, the hardware that a ceiling fan ships with is all you need for an 8 or 9 foot high ceiling...but be sure to double check the distance a fan hangs from the ceiling because some fans hang down more than 18" and will require at least a 9 or 10 foot ceiling.

Once you know how far the fan hangs with the standard mounting hardware you can calculate how far it will hang with a longer downrod by subtracting the length of the standard downrod from the length of a longer downrod. Add that length to the distance the fan normally hangs from the ceiling to determine how far down your fan will hang with any particular downrod length. If you do not know the length of the downrod that is included with you can figure that 4" is about average.

Performance

How does the Craftmade Helios Compare to the Average Ceiling Fan?

Note The Editor's Review is based on the latest product specifications and performance data we have in our database directly from the manufacturer. We take this information and convert it into laymans terms to give you an idea of what you can expect from the fan. Actual performance may vary depending on the circumstances of your application such as room size, ceiling height, blade selection and climate.

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

Wind Speed Factor: 3.19 MPH (average is about 3)
A Wind Speed Factor of 3.19 MPH gives this fan a Breeze Rating of 4 out of 5. This is above average when it comes to ceiling fans, so you can expect to feel a decent amount of cooling breeze from the Helios. Aside from Quality, which accounts for smooth quiet operation and durability, the amount of wind-chill a fan can provide to cool you off is the most important consideration.

Airflow = 5518 CFM (average is about 5,000)
5518 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 Craftmade Helios. This fan should allow you to raise your thermostat by 1 or 2 degrees to save between 5% and 15% on your cooling bills (if you have AC).

Efficiency Rating = 94 CFM/Watt (average is about 86)
An Efficiency Rating of 94 is fairly 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 Craftmade Helios 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".

Wind Speed Factor -vs- Efficiency: Wind Speed is KING! Ceiling fans can save you a lot on your energy bills if you use them properly to reduce your use of central air. Ceiling fans cool you off by creating a wind-chill effect, so the more wind speed a fan generates, the cooler it will make you feel. The cooler your ceiling fan can make you feel, the higher you can raise your AC thermostat to conserve energy without sacrificing your level of comfort. Raising your thermostat by 10 degrees can save you up to 40% on your cooling bills, but you cannot raise your thermostat by 10 degrees if you focus only on ceiling fans that use less energy rather than ones that generate higher wind speed. To put this in perspective: A typical central air system uses about 3500 Watts when it is running, so if a ceiling fan that uses 100 watts allows you to raise your thermostat a couple degrees higher than a more "efficient" fan that uses only 50 watts, the savings you will get by raising your AC therestat a couple degrees higher is far more than the difference of 50 watts between the two fans. With that said, a ceiling fan that uses less watts yet produces higher wind speed is a win-win.
