Description
Webmaster's Choice: This fan gets my "Best of the Best" award. If you look at the comparison graph, you can see that it exceeds our strict criteria for quality, airflow and efficiency, so it will cool you off better than other fans while using less electricity. Because it is so well made, it will run smooth and quiet for years to come saving you the most on your energy bills over time. If you want my advice, this fan is a great choice if it is the right size for your application and you like the way it looks.

Shown in Picture: 72" i6 Indoor Ceiling Fan in Oil Rubbed Bronze. If you are searching for the ultimate, you have found it. No other ceiling fan exceeds our standards of quality and performance on all levels. Super quiet, very powerful and smarter than any other fan on the market, this fan is the best we've ever seen. Even more, it is assembled right here in the USA. You might wince at the price, but it truly is the best fan you can buy.

Assembled In The USA!

Assembled in the USA:The i6 ceiling fans are individually tested and assembled in the USA at the Big Ass Fan headquarters in Lexington Kentucky. After you place your order, your fan will be assembled by a technician and tested for perfect smooth and quiet operation. It will then be disassembled, packaged and shipped directly to your home. It takes about 30 days for this process, but it is well worth the wait to ensure your fan operates perfectly when you receive it. No other ceiling fan company in the USA actually tests every fan before it is shipped out.

Included Control

Included Control: The i6 includes a hand held remote control along with 2 different wall mount options (if you want your remote on the wall). One is a magnetic holder where the control snaps in and out, the other is fixed. Both of these wall mounts can be installed anywhere since they are just brackets that hold the remote and do not need to be wired. The remote provides simple functions such as on/off for the fan, fan speed adjustment, reverse and a light dimmer. To take advantage of the many high tech features of this fan, simply download the App to your phone or other smart device. The App is very feature rich and gives you more control than ever for a ceiling fan. You can even turn your fan on and off from half way around the world.

Mobile App

Included Control: The mobile app for the i6 is what sets this fan asside from all other fans. The various ways you can control this fan are too extensive to describe here. You can set timers for the fan and light separately, you can adjust everything manually, even the color temperature of the light (if you add the light). The fan is very smart, so it can learn your routine and just do everything automatically, of course you can tweak it or set parameters how you want it to respond to your everyday life. In short, you will get to know your i6 fans capabilities and it will get to know you. Here's a brief video about the i6 app.

Optional Light - Adjustable Color Temp

The optional light for the i6 is fully dimmable and provides more light than most LED fans (1770 delivered lumens). But what's more is there are 5 different color temperature settings from 2200K (very warm) to 6500K (very bright). One of the biggest complaints we hear about LED lights is that people don't like the color. Everyone's taste is different and this is the only fan we are aware of that gives you the ability to adjust it to your liking. You can even program your i6 fan to change the color of the light based on the time of day.

UL Listed for Indoor use only: The 72" i6 Indoor Oil Rubbed Bronze 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 101.4". If your ceiling is lower than 101.4" 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 1-800-607-2665 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 72" i6 Indoor Oil Rubbed Bronze ceiling fan is 0", which puts the blades 17" from the ceiling. An additional 6" downrod for slightly higher ceilings is also included with the fan which will bring the fan to 23.4" 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 72" i6 Indoor Oil Rubbed Bronze 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 = 5.5 (average is 3)

Wind Speed Factor: 4.43 MPH (average is about 3)
A Wind Speed Factor of 4.43 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 i6 one of the best fans you can buy to cool you off! Keep in mind that fans with a large blade span like this one may move lots of air when it comes to CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute), but the airflow is spread over a larger area, so the actual concentration of the airflow (wind speed) is usually less than that of normal size fans. For the best wind-chill effect in larger rooms you may want to consider two or more smaller fans (50" to 56") that have a significantly higher wind speed factor. However, if you can only install a single fan, a larger fan like this may be a reasonable compromise. Just don't expect to feel as much breeze as the abnormally high CFM rating leads you to believe. 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 = 13598 CFM (average is about 5,000)
WOW...the 72" i6 Indoor Oil Rubbed Bronze moves a whopping 13598 CFM of air with a Wind Speed of 4.43 MPH. This is a huge amount of air considering the airflow of an average ceiling fan is just 5755 CFM! If you want a fan that can really cool you off, this fan will do a better job than almost any other fan! 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 (if you have AC). Some people find that fans like this pay for themselves during the first summer of operation.

Efficiency Rating = 296 CFM/Watt (average is about 86)
An Efficiency Rating of 296 is in the "WOW" range of super efficient making the 72" i6 Indoor Oil Rubbed Bronze 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 = 42 Watts (average is about 76)
42 Watts per hour is well below average, which is excellent because the 72" i6 Indoor Oil Rubbed Bronze will cost less to operate than the average ceiling fan. 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.
