Can a ceiling fan and a light kit be controlled from the same wall switch? The answer here depends on how your wall switch is currently wired. If you have a single wall switch with two wires (one black, one white), the answer is no unless you purchase a control specifically designed for this type of switch (Hunter offers three models). The answer is yes if you have a three wire set-up in the single wall switch and purchase a more common, dual control that will operate a fan and light separately from a single switch. Having an electrician install a third wire can be expensive.
Why Brass Finishes Are Not Alike In the beginning all brass finishes look great. Then tarnish and dark spots begin to appear. You may even notice the brass on the fan is a different colour than the light kit you just added! Quality brass and other metallic finishes include a series of grinding and buffing steps between multiple plating processes. To help determine the quality of a plated finish, look at the surface closely for scratches or unevenness of finish. Does the surface spot easily? If so, avoid the fan. Can you feel a smooth protective coating? Thats a sign of the kind of quality youll find in the famous Hunter Bright Brass Finish.
Hunter ceiling fans are without doubt the best you can buy, here we have put together all the information you might need to know about ceiling fans before purchasing, please bear in mind that there are other ceiling fan manufacturers out there who copy Hunter ceiling fan designs but they are nowhere near as good, the materials they use are not as high quality and they cannot copy hunter ceiling fans patents such as whisper-wind and wobble-free technology, no-one else can match the Hunter lifetime warranty on the motor either, so while many ceiling fans may look just like a Hunter, remember all ceiling fans are not created equal...
Can my fan be adjusted by remote control? - Most ceiling fans can be adjusted with an accessory remote control sold separately from the fan. In fact, remote controls can really enhance the performance and operating flexibility of ceiling fans since many include one-touch multiple speed settings, instant fan off operation, and full range light dimming -- all possible from the comfort of your favourite chair or bedside table. Ceiling fan and light remote controls can easily be installed either with the fan during new installations or on fans which have been previously installed and in use for some time.
The great thing about fans is that they do not need additional help from your air conditioner to keep your cool. They can usually run on their own to keep the house at a comfortable temperature. As mentioned above, you may also want to open the windows to increase the amount of fresh air in the home. If there is a cool breeze outside, this can increase the ceiling fans ability to keep your feeling cool. Therefore, you can save a great deal of money on energy costs if you turn off your air conditioner and use your fans instead.
Can ceiling fans be mounted on angled or vaulted ceilings? - Yes, ceiling fans can be installed on angled or vaulted ceilings by using a fan canopy (the cap visible closest to the ceiling which covers the electrical box) which has been designed to accommodate sloped ceilings. Many quality fans will include this type of adjustable canopy, like Hunters Installers Choice and HandsFree Canopy systems, but if not included with the fan at original purchase, accessory canopy adapters are sold separately at retail outlets.
