Finding a place that provices great service is equally important, but more difficult to accomplish without interacting with someone. Although the Internet makes it easy to compare prices, it does little to ensure you are going to get good service. Ultimately, our goal is to offer you both the Best Price and the Best Service*, a claim that most companies make but few can live up to.
If you are like most consumers, claims regarding great customer service are empty words until proven otherwise. So, initially, you begin searching for the site with the lowest price because it is so easy to compare prices online. But prices are fickle. They can change from site to site at any given moment, whereas customer service typically remains constant. Either a site offers great service or it doesn't.
We are not hiding anything here. We know that the prices we have on our website may or may not be lowest you can find at any given moment. However, if you call us, we have the distinct advantage of being able to make price adjustments when possible.
The bottom line is, if you have found a better price on this item, please give us a call. We will appreciate being given the opportunity to match or beat it if possible and, in the process, give you a chance to experience our excellent customer service!

Outdoor Damp Locations
Outdoor Wet Locations
(exposed to rain)
UL Listed for Wet Applications: The 52" Simple is UL Listed for Outdoor Wet Locations, which means that you can install it outdoors in uncovered or partially covered areas where it will be directly exposed to rain. Great for a gazebo, lanais, lattice covered patio or any other outdoor area. As with all outdoor ceiling fans, you can also install them indoors in any room that you desire.
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 93.5". If your ceiling is lower than 93.5" 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 1-800-201-1193 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 52" Simple ceiling fan is 6", which puts the blades 10" 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.

|A245-WHF||Minka Aire A245-WHF Ceiling Fan Angled Ceiling Adapter in Flat White Angled Ceiling Kit - Required for ceilings angled more than 30 and up to 45 degrees. Not needed for ceilings angled 30 degrees or less (or flat). Ceilings angled more than 45 will require a box framed into the ceiling to flatten the surface where the fan is to be installed.||$16.43||
Add to Fan
This fan will hange from flat ceilings and ceilings angled up to 30 degrees using the hardware that comes in the box. If your ceiling is over 30 degrees, you can by an Angled Ceiling Adapter that will allow you to install the fan on a ceiling angled up to 45.
Ceiling Angle Calculator
Pitch = 0°
How to measure Rise:
Rise is the vertical distance your ceiling rises for every horizontal foot. Rise per foot is called Pitch. A roof with a 4/12 pitch rises 4 inches vertically for every 12 inches horizontal.
Our calculator uses roof pitch to calculate the angle of your ceiling. Since we already know the horizontal measurement is 12", we only need you to enter in the vertical rise to make the calculation.
To measure the rise of your ceiling: Hold a 12" ruler ruler horizontally (using a level) with one corner touching the ceiling. Then take measure the vertical distance from the other end of the ruler to the ceiling. This is the rise. Select your dimensions in the form above to calculate the angle of your ceiling. Most ceiling fans (except for hugger fans) can hang on ceilings angled up to 30 degrees without the need for an angled ceiling adapter. 30 degrees is slightly less than a 7/12 pitch. Most angled ceiling adapters will allow your fan to hang up to 45 degress...which is a 12/12 pitch.
How does the 52" Simple Compare to the Average Ceiling Fan?
Quality Rating = 5 (average is 3)
With a Quality Rating of 5, the 52" Simple 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: 4.08 MPH (average is about 3)
A Wind Speed Factor of 4.08 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 Simple 52 one of the best fans you can buy to cool you 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 = 7051 CFM (average is about 5,000)
7051 CFM is a lot of airflow and is far above average, which is very good news if you want a ceiling fan that can really cool you off. 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. By doing so, it is possible that the 52" Simple may pay for itself during the first year of operation depending on the normal cost to run your air conditioning (if you have AC).
Efficiency Rating = 213 CFM/Watt (average is about 86)
An Efficiency Rating of 213 is extremely efficient and considered environmentally friendly by our standards (over 200 CFM/Watt). 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 = 33 Watts (average is about 76)
33 Watts per hour is "Extremely Low", which is fantastic because the 52" Simple 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 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.

Operational Cost Calculator(Instructions/Details)
Basic Help: Our operational cost calculator estimates how much it will cost to operate the 52" Simple ceiling fan. By default, the calculator assumes that you will leave your fan running 24 hours a day for the entire year (which is not very likely to be accurate), so you will want to change the hours and days to be more in line with how often you think you will use the fan. The calculator also defaults to the average cost per kWh of electricity in the USA. You can change this to use the average cost of electricity in your state, although this may vary widely from city to city. For the most accurate calculation, manually enter the actual cost/kWh shown on your utility bill. The wattage of the fan is already included (if it is known), but you can change it if you wish to see how the wattage affects the cost.
Fans with lights: Calculations are performed without lights by default. If you add a light fixture to the fan, you can add the wattage of the fixture to the wattage of the fan to perform calculations with the lights on. In some cases, when a light fixture of known wattage is included with the fan, the option to calculate with or without lights will show automatically. The light fixture on a ceiling fan almost always uses substantially more electricity than the fan motor, so it is very important to take that into account when comparing the overall operational cost between various ceiling fans
CFM -vs- Efficiency: CFM is KING! It is more important to buy a fan with higher CFMs than it is to buy a fan that uses less electricity. The highest wattage consumed by the most energy guzzling ceiling fan on our website is about 120 watts. So if you input 120 as the fan watts and run our calculator, you will see that it still costs less than 2 cents per hour to operate the most energy guzzling ceiling fan in most states. You will get more savings with a higher CFM fan than a lower Wattage fan because if your fan moves more air you will be able to raise your thermostat to a higher degree. Raising your thermostat by 10 degrees can save you up to 40% on your cooling bills. Choosing a less powerful fan because it uses less electricity can be the worst mistake you can make because it will not cool you off enough to allow you to raise your thermostat to a high enough level without becoming uncomfortable. This is why CFM is so much more important to consider than Wattage.
When comparing fans of different sizes with varying CFMs, it is important to consider the wind speed in order to know which fans will make you feel cooler. Read more about Ceiling Fan Wind Speed here!
The average kWh by state used by our calculator is derived from information published by the US Government Department of Energy as of May 2009. Your actual cost may differ from this. Again, refer to your utility bill for your most recent kWh cost.
