Description

Shown in Picture: Fluid 54" Ceiling Fan w/DC Motor In Cyber Yellow

The blades tell the whole story. The Fluid ceiling fan by Craftmade is a funky, free-form fashion statement. Four fabulous finishes fill your indoor and outdoor space. But, not only does this fan bring on a look, it has the performance and efficiency to back it up. With a super efficient DC motor, the Fluid only uses 38.7 Watts on high speed while producing decent airflow of 5570 CFM, which is not too bad for a fan with large blades like this. The overall efficiency is 153 CFM/Watt, which is about 3 times more efficient than a typical AC motor ceiling fan. Now, were pretty sure performance is not necessarily the most important consideration when looking at a Mod fan like this, but just know this fan is no slacker.

Included Control: This fan includes the Craftmade IDC hand held remote control and wall control. Both controls give you 6 speeds, reverse and a full range light dimmer. You can use both controls together or just the remote or the wall control, giving you maximum flexibility. The wall control only requires a single hot wire.

UL Listed for Damp Applications: The 54" Fluid 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.

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 95.69". If your ceiling is lower than 95.69" then you may need to add a flushmount adapter or close to ceiling downrod 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 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 54" Fluid ceiling fan is 0", which puts the blades 12" from the ceiling. An additional 6" downrod for slightly higher ceilings is also included with the fan which will bring the fan to 17.69" 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 54" Fluid 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 54" Fluid 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: 3.02 MPH (average is about 3)
A Wind Speed Factor of 3.02 MPH gives this fan a Breeze Rating of 3 out of 5. This is rather average when it comes to ceiling fans, so you will feel some cooling breeze, but don't expect the 54" Fluid to blow your socks 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 = 5571 CFM (average is about 5,000)
5571 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 54" Fluid. The 3.02 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 54" Fluid 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 = 154 CFM/Watt (average is about 86)
An Efficiency Rating of 154 is very far above 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 = 39 Watts (average is about 76)
39 Watts per hour is "Extremely Low", which is fantastic because the 54" Fluid 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".

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 thermostat 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.
