Description

Shown in Picture: Emerson Heat Fan 48 Ceiling Fan Model HF948BS in Brushed Steel with Brushed Steel Color blades. The Heat Fan 48 is a Industrial 3 Blade Fans style Ceiling Fan Designed for use Indoors Only. This fan features a 188mm x 15mm Motor with a Unknown Degree Blade Pitch producing an AirFlow rating of 5 (where 5 is best). It is operated by a 0 Speed No Control. Other types of controls are also available.

Perfect for large, open spaces with high ceilings, Industrial/Commerical fans improve worker comfort year round. In winter months, these fans can help reduce your fuel by recirculating trapped ceiling heat back down to floor areas. The contoured blades provide maximum airflow compared to standard paddle type blades. This fan is designed for industrial applications and operates at an extremely high RPM. Therefore, it must be installed with the blades at least 10 feet from the floor for safe operation.

UL Listed for Indoor use only: The Quorum Venture 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 94.35". If your ceiling is lower than 94.35" 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 3.5" and 6" downrods(s)

How long of a downrod do I need?

The downrod included with the Quorum Venture ceiling fan is 3.5", which puts the blades 10" from the ceiling. An additional 6" downrod for slightly higher ceilings is also included with the fan which will bring the fan to 12.85" 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.

About Angled Ceilings

This fan will hange from flat ceilings and ceilings angled up to 30 degrees using the hardware that comes in the box. If your ceiling is over 30 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

Rise =
Inches
Fraction
Pitch = 0°

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.

Performance

How does the Emerson Heat Fan 48 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 = 5 (average is 3)
With a Quality Rating of 5, the Emerson Heat Fan 48 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.

Wind Speed Factor: 4.57 MPH (average is about 3)
A Wind Speed Factor of 4.57 MPH gives this fan a Breeze Rating of 5.5 out of 5. This is over the top when it comes to wind speed, so this fan provides about the strongest breeze you can get from a ceiling fan, making the Heat Fan 48 one of the best fans you can buy to cool you off! 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 = 6879 CFM (average is about 5,000)
6879 CFM is a good amount of airflow 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 Emerson Heat Fan 48 will allow you to raise your thermostat by several degrees, which will help you save additional money on your cooling bills (if you have AC).

Efficiency Rating = 96 CFM/Watt (average is about 86)
An Efficiency Rating of 96 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 = 72 Watts (average is about 76)
72 Watts per hour is pretty close to average, so it will cost about the same to operate the Emerson Heat Fan 48 as most other ceiling fans. 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.
