"Every Day is EARTH DAY when you own an Emerson Eco Fan"

The Emerson Avant 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 Avant Eco is among the Greenest Ceiling Fans on the Planet. This amazing fan moves over 6,900 Cubic Feet of Air per Minute while consuming only 20.2 watts of electricity (with 54" 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 Avant Eco, you will use less than half the amount of electricity you are currently using if you have ceiling fans in your home. The Avant Eco is available in your choice of 54", 60" and 72" blade spans depending on the blades that you select.

Blades in picture may not be actual length as described in the fan configuration since the pictured blades are available in different lengths.

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.

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 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 96" in order to meet building codes. If your ceiling is lower than 96" 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.

What size do I need?
CFSCKVNB - Angled Ceiling Adapters Angled Ceiling Kit - Required for ceilings angled more than 26 and up to 45 degrees. Not needed for ceilings angled 26 degrees or less (or flat). Ceilings angled more than 45 will require a box framed into the ceiling to flatten the surface where the fan is to be installed. Don't know your

Indoor and Outdoor Limitations

Indoor Application

UL Listed for Indoor use only

The Emerson Avant ECO (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.

Editors Review

How does the Emerson Avant ECO (DC Motor) Compare to the Average Ceiling Fan?

Eco Friendly Ceiling Fan
Performance Comparison Graph

Wind Speed: 4.93 MPH (433.84 LFM)
(Graph represents 54" blade span)

Quality Rating = 5 (average is 3)
With a Quality Rating of 5, the Emerson Avant ECO (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 = 6900 CFM | Wind Speed = 4.93 MPH.
6900 CFM is a good amount of aiflow and is above average. We highly recommend ceiling fans that move at least this amount of air in order to provide enough wind chill effect to keep you cool. The 4.93 MPH wind speed is a little lower than you might expect with such a high airflow. The wind speed tells you how much breeze you can expect to feel when you are beneath the fan. Due to the blade span of this fan, the actual concentration of airflow is spread over a larger area, so the ultimate cooling effect is a little less than some fans with smaller blade spans. This is a compromise that you may be willing to accept if the actual area where you spend your time is further away from the center of the fan, which is why you may consider a larger fan such as this one. In this case the Emerson Avant ECO (DC Motor) will allow you to raise your thermostat by 1 or 2 degrees, which will still help you save additional money on your cooling bills (if you have AC).

Efficiency Rating = 345 CFM/Watt (average is about 86)
An Efficiency Rating of 345 is in the "WOW" range of super efficient making the Emerson Avant ECO (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 Avant ECO (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...
