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.
Why Many Fans Are Noisy. An electrical humming created when a ceiling fan is running is usually the result of poor engineering design and a lack of precision manufacturing. Some manufacturers use generic, inexpensive ball bearings to reduce cost, even though these are a common source of operating noise. A lack of proper dampening between metal parts can also create and intensify noise, as can the use of extra thin sheet metal motor and mounting system parts. Hunter fans only use the best materials available.
Ceiling Colors - Ceiling color affects the room atmosphere. Therefore, if your ceiling is low, you should use bright colors so it did not feel cramped. You can use white or other soft colors. You can choose the same color as the wall color. However, if your ceiling is high, you should use a dark color so your ceiling will seem lower.
What length drop rod should I use with my fan? Will the fan be more prone to wobble if I use a drop rod? - See chart above. A general formula for calculating drop rod length is: ceiling height in feet minus 9 = drop rod length. This formula is based on the fan-to-floor distance of 8 feet plus 1 foot for the dimension of the fan. So if your ceiling height is 12 feet, you need a 3 foot drop rod in order to properly position the fan 8 feet from the floor. Using long-length drop rods for fan installations actually help stabilize fans and reduce the potential for wobble. Think of a grandfather clock pendulum and its slow, heavy swing versus a smaller clock pendulum with a fast, unsteady swing. Weight and length combine to create stability, reducing wobble, whether it is in a ceiling fan or a clock pendulum.
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 do some fans require oil and others do not? The Hunter Original has a very unique motor that uses an oil-bath lubrication system. This system keeps the main bearings lubricated at all times, for quiet operation and long-life. It is part of the reason why this fan has a limited lifetime motor warranty. Most other fans use motors that do not require oil.
