"Every Day is EARTH DAY when you own an Emerson Eco Fan"
The Emerson Carrera Grand ECO is the second generation of Eco ceiling fans from Emerson. These super energy efficient ceiling fans are ENERGY STAR qualified and incorporate the revolutionary DC powered EcoMotor from Emerson that set a new standard for quality and energy efficiency. Over 3 times more efficient than most other ceiling fans, the Carrera Grande Eco is among the Greenest Ceiling Fans on the Planet. This amazing fan moves over 7,100 Cubic Feet of Air per Minute while consuming only 22 watts of electricity (with 60" blades), which means it moves more air with a fraction of the electricity a typical ceiling fan uses. This is an unprecedented breakthrough in ceiling fan technology far exceeding the standards set for ENERGY STAR Qualification by the Department of Energy (DOE). If you were to replace all of the ceiling fans in your home with the Carrera Grande Eco, you will use less than half the amount of electricity you are currently using if you have ceiling fans in your home. The Carrera Grande Eco is available in your choice of 54", 60" and 72" blade spans depending on the blades that you select.
Damp Rated: The Carrera Grande Eco is Damp rated, but only the B77 (54"), B78 (60") or B79 (72") series blades are recommended for use in damp locations.
Blades in picture may not be actual length as described in the fan configuration since the pictured blades are available in different lengths.

Low, High or Vaulted Ceiling Installation Options
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).

Indoor and Outdoor Limitations
UL Listed for Damp Applications
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.

How does the Emerson Carrera Grande Eco 54 (DC Motor) Compare to the Average Ceiling Fan?
Eco Friendly Ceiling Fan
Performance Comparison Graph
Wind Speed: 5.13 MPH (451.7 LFM)
(Graph represents 54" blade span)
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.
Note: CFM and Wind Speed are calculated using standard shaped 54" blades. The size and shape of the blades will alter the performance dramatically. For example: Palm style and carved wood leaf shaped blades can reduce performance by as much as 50%!
Airflow = 7184 CFM | Wind Speed = 5.13 MPH.
7184 CFM is a lot of airflow and is far above average, which is very good news if you want a ceiling fan that can really cool you off.
Fans like this will allow you to raise your thermostat by up to 10 degrees, which can save you as much as 40% on your cooling bills. By doing so, it is possible that the Emerson Carrera Grande Eco 54 (DC Motor) may pay for itself during the first year of operation depending on the normal cost to run your air conditioning (if you have AC).
Efficiency Rating = 359 CFM/Watt (average is about 86)
An Efficiency Rating of 359 is
in the "WOW" range of super efficient making the Emerson Carrera Grande Eco 54 (DC Motor) one of the most environmentally friendly ceiling fans ever made.
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 = 20 Watts (average is about 76)
20 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".
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...
