Antique brass is a very loosely used term to describe darkened or brushed brass finishes. Between ceiling fan manufacturers, no 2 antique brass finishes are exactly alike. Some are lighter, some are darker, some are yellower and some are greener. In general, they will all blend together, but do not expect an antique brass ceiling fan to match other antique brass items in your home. In the past, antique brass was considered the more sophisticated choice for ceiling fans. But at that time, there were only 2 other choices, white or polished brass. Things have changed in the last 10 years with the addition of many new finishes and antique brass has become less popular compared to the new bronze, copper, and nickel finishes that are now available on ceiling fans. Your choices of ceiling fan styles that are available in Antique Brass are far more limited nowadays. Yet, many people still have antique brass fixtures in their home, so if you need your fan to blend in with something else that is antique brass, or simply prefer the antique brass finish, here is the place to find your fan.

Although the EPA now requires fan manufacturers to publish the CFM ratings of their fans, there is no standardized scientific method of determining what size and CFM fan is best for any given application. A few quick searches and you will find that each ceiling fan manufacturer interprets this differently. So we created our own size and CFM recommendation chart to give you an idea what we recommend for "typical" applications. We produced this chart based on over 20 years of experience dealing with ceiling fans and the people who we've sold them to. For the most part, this chart will suffice. If you have low ceilings, you can fudge a little on the CFM and use a fan in the lesser range of the room size. If you have high ceilings, you need more CFM and a fan closer to the larger size of the chart. In most cases, the more the CFM the better and the higher the quality score the better!
