Description

Shown in Picture: Hunter HFC 72 Ceiling Fan Model 59136 in Matte Black With Matte Black (Aluminum) Blades. The 72" HFC-72 ceiling fan is designed to significantly improve air circulation in large spaces like vaulted living rooms and open concept spaces. The fan is also damp rated for use in covered porches, patios, and sunrooms. The large blades do the work - it turns at lower speeds than a standard ceiling fan yet moves much more air (CFM) because of its long 72" aluminum blade span. With this fan, you get the air circulation you need to regulate room temperature and keep heating costs down without the wind and breeze created by smaller fans. As a special feature, the HFC-72 can be installed as a 3 blade fan.

UL Listed for Damp Applications: The Hunter 72" HFC in Matte Black 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 105.89". If your ceiling is lower than 105.89" 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 1-800-607-2665 so we can check to see if there are any further alternatives.

Note: This fan includes Includes 11" Downrod downrods(s)

How long of a downrod do I need?

The downrod included with the Hunter 72" HFC in Matte Black ceiling fan is 11", which puts the blades 22" 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 Hunter 72" HFC in Matte Black 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 = 4 (average is 3)
A Quality Rating of 4 is above average, the Hunter 72" HFC in Matte Black ceiling fan will run smooth and quiet and will give you many years of operation with no worries of the motor burning out.

Wind Speed Factor: 2.96 MPH (average is about 3)
A Wind Speed Factor of 2.96 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 72" HFC to blow your socks 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 = 9105 CFM (average is about 5,000)
WOW...the Hunter 72" HFC in Matte Black moves a whopping 9105 CFM of air with a Wind Speed of 2.96 MPH. This is a huge amount of air considering the airflow of an average ceiling fan is just 5755 CFM! The 2.96 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 Hunter 72" HFC in Matte Black 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 = 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)

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.

Is this fan bidirectional ? Does it come with remote ?
Ken H on Jul 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello Ken,

The Hunter HFC 72 fan comes with a 3 speed wall control. The fan is reversible from a switch on the motor housing. You can convert the fan to remote by adding one of the various remote control options provided on the product page (Click on the Controls button). Fans like this where the reverse switch is on the motor cannot be reversed from any remote control, they will still need to be reversed manually.
Do you offer a 220v 72" industrial fan?
scott e on Jan 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes we do. Most of them are made by Fanimation. Since most 220 volt fans are used outside the USA, we suggest you call to discuss your options since shipping and other technical issues may be a factor depending on where you are located. There's more than what you see on our website.
