Shown in Picture: Matthews Fan Co. Ar Ruthiane Metal Damp Ceiling Fan Model MG-AR-RED-MTL in Red Jewel Tone with Red Jewel Tone Metal blades. The Ar Ruthiane Metal Damp is a Dual Head Dual Head style Ceiling Fan Designed for use indoors or outdoors in either damp or dry locations. This fan features a Dual 3.5 Amp AC Motor with a Varies Degree Blade Pitch producing an AirFlow rating of 2 (where 5 is best). It is operated by a Variable Speed Wall Control. Other types of controls are also available.

The Ar Ruthiane's unique hourglass support arms grasp bullet shaped motor housings, which rotate about its teardrop center. At 48' in diameter, the Ruthiane is Matthews' most substantial fan. The motor heads can be infinitely positioned in 180-degree arcs for optimum air movement, the greater the angles of the motors to the horizontal support rods (up or down), the faster the axial rotation. A slow, controlled axial rotation is achieved by both motor head position and fan blade speed. This version is suitable for both outdoor damp locations and indoor dry locations.

Included Control: Variable Speed Wall Control.

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.

Performance

How does the Matthews Fan Co. Ar Ruthiane Metal Damp 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 Matthews Fan Co. Ar Ruthiane Metal Damp 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: 2.29 MPH (average is about 3)
A Wind Speed Factor of 2.29 MPH gives this fan a Breeze Rating of 2 out of 5. This is very light breeze, so don't expect to experience very much cooling effect from the Ar Ruthiane Metal Damp. 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 = 3200 CFM (average is about 5,000)
3200 CFM far less than the average ceiling fan, so don't expect to feel much of a breeze from this fan unless you are are directly beneath it. We only recommended the Matthews Fan Co. Ar Ruthiane Metal Damp for small rooms or areas where very little airflow is needed. This fan may not allow you to raise your thermostat, so do not expect to save much on your cooling bills (if you have AC).

Efficiency Rating = 12 CFM/Watt (average is about 86)
An Efficiency Rating of 12 is below 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 = 272 Watts (average is about 76)
272 Watts per hour is higher than average, so the Matthews Fan Co. Ar Ruthiane Metal Damp costs a little more to operate than other 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.
