How does the Quorum 60" Proxima Patio in Oiled Bronze Compare to the Average Ceiling Fan?
Quality Rating = 5.000000 (average is 3)
With a Quality Rating of 5, the Quorum 60" Proxima Patio in Oiled Bronze 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: 3.75 MPH (average is about 3)
A Wind Speed Factor of 3.75 MPH gives this fan a Breeze Rating of 5 out of 5. This is a stronger breeze than most ceiling fans, so if you are looking for a fan to keep you cool, the 60" Proxima Patio great choice. 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 = 8327 CFM (average is about 5,000)
8327 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 Quorum 60" Proxima Patio in Oiled Bronze 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 = 260 CFM/Watt (average is about 86)
An Efficiency Rating of 260 is in the "WOW" range of super efficient making the Quorum 60" Proxima Patio in Oiled 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)
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.

Unfortunately, the patio fan does not come with a remote, it comes with a 6 speed wall control. Keep in mind that most outdoor fans do not have remotes simply because remote controls generally do not hold up well outdoors.
Answer this Question
Yes, the wall control does need to be wired. This makes it much more reliable than those that depend on batteries. Here's a link to the installation manual if you'd like to take a peak at it:
