What is the difference between a four and five blade ceiling fan? The main difference between a 4-blade and 5-blade fan is aesthetics, with some additional wind noise associated with 5-blade fans. For a given motor, a 4-blade fan will move more air than a 5-blade fan. The 5th blade puts additional drag on the motor, slowing down the RPM of the blades, which decreases the CFM. All Hunter fans, whether 4 or 5 blades, are designed for optimal air delivery
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.
Why does my fan hum when I installed a variable speed (solid state) control? Most quality ceiling fans are operated by a certain type of electrical control system called capacitors. Capacitor electronics in ceiling fans create distinct speed steps like high, medium, and low. Capacitors control the fan speed in a way that does not produce a hum. Variable fan speed controls, which create a speed control range from low to high, are operated by solid state electronics. Variable controls can create a hum because they control the fans speed in a different manner. For quiet fan operation, capacitor type fan controls are recommended for most ceiling fan installations.
Why Many Fans Are Less Efficient. The amount of energy a fan consumes plus the volume of air the fan moves determines the fans overall efficiency. Small, low wattage motors may use little energy, but they also move very little air, resulting in very inefficient fans, Hunter fans are built to shift a lot of air.
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.
Most Hunter ceiling fans have a reverse option which is especially important to reduce heating bills in the winter, warm air can be directed down to where it is needed by spinning the ceiling fan clockwise.
