This ceiling fan can be installed on ceilings that are 8 or 9 feet high and can be angled up to 26 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 26 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 97" in order to meet building codes. If your ceiling is lower than 97" 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.
Note: This fan includes 4 1/2" downrods(s)
How long of a downrod do I need?
Building codes require ceiling fans to be installed with the blades no lower than 7 feet from the floor in residential applications (industrial fans may require more distnace). The closer you are to the fan blades, the more cooling effect you will feel, so 7 feet is the optimal distance from the floor for most residential ceiling fans to get the most benefit.
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.
The downrod included with the Emerson Carrera Grande Eco 54 (DC Motor) ceiling fan is 4.5", which puts the blades 13" 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.
This fan will hange from flat ceilings and ceilings angled up to 26 degrees using the hardware that comes in the box. If your ceiling is over 26 degrees, you can by an Angled Ceiling Adapter that will allow you to install the fan on a ceiling angled up to 45.
Ceiling Angle Calculator
How to measure Rise:
Rise is the vertical distance your ceiling rises for every horizontal foot. Rise per foot is called Pitch. A roof with a 4/12 pitch rises 4 inches vertically for every 12 inches horizontal.
Our calculator uses roof pitch to calculate the angle of your ceiling. Since we already know the horizontal measurement is 12", we only need you to enter in the vertical rise to make the calculation.
To measure the rise of your ceiling: Hold a 12" ruler ruler horizontally (using a level) with one corner touching the ceiling. Then take measure the vertical distance from the other end of the ruler to the ceiling. This is the rise. Select your dimensions in the form above to calculate the angle of your ceiling. Most ceiling fans (except for hugger fans) can hang on ceilings angled up to 30 degrees without
the need for an angled ceiling adapter. 30 degrees is slightly less than a 7/12 pitch. Most angled ceiling adapters will allow your fan to hang up to 45 degress...which is a 12/12 pitch.
The Emerson Carrera Grande Eco 54 (DC Motor) is UL Listed for Outdoor Damp Locations, which means the fan is rated for indoor or outoor use in covered areas where there is excessive moisture, but not direct exposure to rain or sprinklers. It's great for fully covered patios and porches or screened enclosures. All outdoor ceiling fans can also be installed inside your house, so they are also great for bathrooms and laundry rooms or any other room inside your home. NOTE: Certain blade options may not be suitable for use in outdoor damp locations. Make sure the blades you choose are suitable for your location.
Quality Rating = 5 (average is 3)
With a Quality Rating of 5, the Emerson Carrera Grande Eco 54 (DC Motor) is among the finest quality ceiling fans made. It will run smooth and quiet without wobbling or making noise and you can let it run
24 hours a day for years on end without any worries of the motor burning out.

29 Watts per hour is
"Extremely Low", which is fantastic because the Emerson Carrera Grande Eco 54 (DC Motor) will cost almost nothing to operate compared to other ceiling fans.
Use the calculator below to estimate just how much it will cost to operate this fan in "Your home".
Basic Help: Our operational cost calculator estimates how much it will cost to operate the Emerson Carrera Grande Eco 54 (DC Motor) 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.

Hansen Wholesale was the very first company to bring ceiling fans and fireplace decor to the Internet. We've been in business since 1976 supplying these products to retail customers and wholesale buyers all over the country. But In late 1994, we turned left onto the information superhighway by creating a website using America Online. Early on, we predicted great potential on the Internet, so in 1995 we branched away from America Online and launched this website, which has have been here ever since. Our years of experience dealing with online customers from all over the world at both the retail and wholesale level gives us a sharp competitive edge and has helped us grow into one of the single largest suppliers of ceiling fans, lighting, and fireplace decor on the Internet.
We Believe in Human to Human interaction!
From the outset, we decided that Human Interaction was going to be the key to our success, so early on, we invested vast resources to develop and maintain a large staff of ceiling fan, lighting and fireplace decor experts to answer questions, quote prices, and process orders over the phone. So if you are looking for the best price possible and prefer to purchase from a well established company who has experts you can talk to, then you will enjoy the benefits of doing business with Hansen Wholesale.
Our prices are guaranteed to be the lowest you can find. However, because we deal with so many different buying entities (from consumers to developers and exporters), the prices on our site are not necessarily the prices that you will pay if you call to place your order. Further discounts are quoted based on quantities and established relationships with both wholesale buyers and consumers. So we finalize all orders and quotes over the phone where additional discounts are taken. Calling to order allows us to offer you more customized products at better prices.
