UL Listed for Wet Applications: The Minka Aire 52" Simple in Flat White 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 Includes 6" Downrod downrods(s)

How long of a downrod do I need?

The downrod included with the Minka Aire 52" Simple in Flat White 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

About Angled Ceilings

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

Rise =
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 Minka Aire 52" Simple in Flat White 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 Minka Aire 52" Simple in Flat White 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: 3.28 MPH (average is about 3)
A Wind Speed Factor of 3.28 MPH gives this fan a Breeze Rating of 4 out of 5. This is above average when it comes to ceiling fans, so you can expect to feel a decent amount of cooling breeze from the 52" Simple. 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 = 5670 CFM (average is about 5,000)
5670 CFM is pretty much average, so don't expect a super strong breeze from this fan. However, most people are used to average ceiling fans, so if you have never experienced a fan more powerful than this, you may be satisfied with the Minka Aire 52" Simple in Flat White. This fan should allow you to raise your thermostat by 1 or 2 degrees to save between 5% and 15% on your cooling bills (if you have AC).

Efficiency Rating = 193 CFM/Watt (average is about 86)
An Efficiency Rating of 193 is very far above 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 = 29 Watts (average is about 76)
29 Watts per hour is "Extremely Low", which is fantastic because the Minka Aire 52" Simple in Flat White 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 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.

Can this fan be mounted on a slanted ceiling?
Madeline B on Jan 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the mounting hardware included with the fan will allow you to hang it on any a flat ceiling or one angled up to 30 degrees. If you have a steeper angle, they also make an optional angled ceiling adapter that goes up to 45 degrees. You will find it by clicking on the Accessories button on the product page.
are the fan blades made of solid wood?
michael s on Dec 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hello Michael,

The blades are not wood at all, they are made of specially formulated ABS plastic that has a high degree of UV protection for added durability in the most extreme outdoor weather conditions. These are the best type of blades for an outdoor ceiling fan and will be substantially more durable and resistant to warping than solid wood, laminated wood or pressed board blades. The fan is also an excellent choice for use indoors as well.

Hope that helps...

Excellent fan
This EMERSON fan is the best fan I have ever had. I bought and installed this fan myself in the master bedroom about two years ago. I also installed the LK180 light fixture and the SW405 control. This fan replaced a cheaper fan which was perfectly fine mechanically, except that it had a slight annoying hum. The EMERSON motor is perfectly quiet at all speeds. The only sound is air movement when on high speed. The fan runs every night all night long on low without any problem. We love it!

Perfect fan
We needed a circulating fan for our bedroom and found this one thanks to Bob Vila's recommendation to consider this Hansen Wholesale and a neighbor who suggested that the DC fans were completely silent. It is a terrific fan. Very good phone support. Completely silent. We installed it ourselves and while scaling the heights was tricky, the install was very straightforward. Love that all functions are available from the remote. Light, dimmer, fwd & reverse.

Color is not accurate
When I opened the box the fan was a gray/silver color. I ordered the matte white color. After a phone call...turns out this company calls this color matte white while it is a gray color. Just sharing this information with you so if you want white, this is not for you.
Color of fan is not white.

Response from Hansen Wholesale
Hello Linda, Thanks for posting your review along with the pictures comparing the fan to a bright white finish. There are many shades of white, and your comparison will likely do others good. I hope that you have talked to our customer service department about returning the fan because we certainly will take it back and issue a full refund if you do not install it.

As advertised
The fan looks great and is very quiet. It replaced an old Casablanca fan - which very quiet. The Emerson is just as quiet for significantly less than a comparable Casablanca.

Didn't find installation difficult. Purchased the separate wall controller - you need to have both the remote and the wall control identically programmed. Plus, we have another Emerson Fan in another bed room....discovered the it was on the same frequency/code.....didn't take long to reconfigure the controls and Fan to be on a different frequency/code.

Found the staff at Hansen to be extremely helpful and responsive.

whisper quiet, lights blindlingly bright
While the instructions to install this could have been more clear (I would have saved 2 hours of scrambling for tools if they just included more pictures that showed I did not need said tools) once I got this up and running it worked great. It made a horribly annoying tick for the first 2 hours of operation but I just let it run, balance itself out, now I have it running nightly (its in my bedroom) and its whisper quiet and moves a surprising amount of air even on the low setting. I bought this on clearance and know its discontinued, but its a minka and should last for 20 years.

Quiet and lots of air
Came back to Hansens to buy more to replace all of my existing fans. I have had this fan for a year. Installed it in my great room. At high speed it is quiet but pushes out lots of air. Blades look really good with nice graining and color. The oil rubbed bronze is true, not black or brown. I like the variety of speed settings. Transitions from one speed to the next like a charm. And a DC motor to save bucks down the road.

My objectives when purchasing this ceiling fan:
1) Quiet - this is a bedroom fan and I am obsessive about noisy fans
2) Air Movement
3) Efficiency
4) Price

Based off these objectives - this fan is a 5 star rating.
1) Absolutely silent. This motor makes no noise. At all. Silent. Beautiful.
2) I went with the largest blades that you could buy and this moves a ton of air. Half speed is more than sufficient for my needs.
3) Can't quite comment on the efficiency as I don't have the mechanism to track energy usage to the fan specifically. So I will hope that it is as efficient as the description claims.
4) It was expensive. But since this was my lowest ranked objective, I did not let it impact my rating.

If you're objectives match these and you're considering this fan; go for it. You will not be disappointed.

Love the remote!
This is our 6th Casablanca ceiling fan. Some of them are about 30 years old, with the original design and motors. The newer ones are still quite good.
This is the first with built-in remote, and we really like that feature. The style pictured on the web site (more like the original Casablanca fans) is not quite what this fan looks like, but close enough.
Dark room, so hard to see detail.

Perfect fit
Just what we were looking for for our porch! It moves a lot of air, and the motor is pretty much silent even at full speed (though there is some noise at full speed just from the blades hitting the air). Very happy with our two indoor Emerson fans as well :)
