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...
Many Fans Move Very Little Air. A ceiling fan that looks nice but moves little air is a comfort to no one. One of the keys to proper air movement is blade pitch. The greater the pitch-the angle of the blade-the greater the air movement providing the blade pitch has been properly harmonized with the motor. Unlike Hunter some manufacturers skimp on materials and dont use large enough or powerful enough motors to support proper blade pitch. So they compromise on blade pitch, sacrificing proper air movement to reduce the stress on undersized or under-powered motors. Many fans also use extra thin blades to reduce cost. The reduced blade surface area means reduced air movement.
Common Reasons Substandard Fans Break Down Prematurely. Motor size and blade pitch are not specified and matched correctly. Improperly installed on/off pull chains can become faulty and be pulled out of the housing. Inadequate quality, testing, manufacturing and inspection procedures send poor quality fans to market. Defective motor windings can lead to electrical shorts in the motor. Low quality fan bearings may be shielded on one side only, allowing dust to enter and cause premature failure. Inexpensive materials, poor engineering, and substandard manufacturing processes are used to create bargain fans.
What is the minimum height I need in my room to put up a fan? Safety standards state that the min height from the floor to the bottom of the fan blades must be 2.3m or 7ft 6, consider Hunter Low Profile ceiling fan if you have a low ceiling, just really make sure that they are above head height.
One thing that people overlook planning installation is what is on the other side of the wall. Be sure to remember that the sound will penetrate both the front and back of the wall, this may become an issue if the adjoining room is a place that you do not want to hear the sound from the speaker.
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.
