Best ceiling fans for you Sat, 21 Sep 2013 09:47:26 +0000 en-US hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.9.11 Casablanca C45G11B Stealth DC 54-Inch Ceiling Fan http://marksfans.com/casablanca-c45g11b-stealth-dc-54-inch-ceiling-fan/ http://marksfans.com/casablanca-c45g11b-stealth-dc-54-inch-ceiling-fan/#comments Sat, 21 Sep 2013 08:53:31 +0000 http://marksfans.com/?p=280 The purchase of the Casablanca Stealth DC – 54″ Model will cost you big bucks, but they have a lifetime warranty to protect your investment. Well, we found that out the hard way. After having our wallet set back for this buy, it did not take long for the unit to fail, and that is where our troubles began. Casablanca took us round and round on the warranty, giving us seemingly ‘rehearsed’ answers to every counter argument we had. Overall, they did their best to ensure that we were to pay for the repairs ourselves. Well, we finally wrote this off as a loss, and went ahead to buy a cheaper, and so far, more reliable fans. This review has been written to save anyone who heeds it, from the damages we encountered, and to have the Casablanca customer service more true to their word.

I have been an electrician for over thirty years. Using this fan has been a unique experience so far. There is no noise coming from the rotating blades, and the fan is very efficient when it comes to power consumption. The looks are amazing and always seem to catch the attention of my guests. The problem comes when the fan breaks down. The company claims to have a lifetime warranty on the product, but that is simply a marketing gimmick. They do not even help you in restoring the fan if it breaks down after just a week’s use. The company insists that I need to pay for the repairs, and my relief comes from the fact that I bought it through Amazon, who gladly took it back.

Hampton Bay Antigua 56 http://marksfans.com/hampton-bay-antigua-56/ http://marksfans.com/hampton-bay-antigua-56/#comments Sat, 21 Sep 2013 08:51:38 +0000 http://marksfans.com/?p=277 This product is a good way to add a touch of grace to the style in your home. It has a beautiful hand stamped average cherry finish, with the blades having wood blades. The entire set up is topped up with oil polished bronze finish. The fan is further complemented by a light set up which makes use of three 60-watt bulbs, which are included during the purchase.

Reviews

I bought the fan, because it perfectly suited the dining set in my house. The base was too dark for my taste, and so I ended up the oil rubbed finish with some shellac, making the final appearance resemble an antique brass fan. I also replaced the 60-watt bulbs with their equivalent in spiral fluorescents, and now the fan really appeals to my taste. I just loved it so much, that I could not even imagine replacing it, and so I had to tweak it to my specific needs.
-

I bought this product, although I had two other Hampton Bay Antigua fans. I did not like the fact that those other models I had bought four years ago were no longer in production, and so I was a little skeptical of the darker toned fan. However, the moment I had the unit installed, all my woes vanished completely. The fan really complements my bedroom, and I cannot imagine having anything else in its place.

Hampton Bay Hugger 52 http://marksfans.com/hampton-bay-hugger-52/ http://marksfans.com/hampton-bay-hugger-52/#comments Sat, 21 Sep 2013 08:50:28 +0000 http://marksfans.com/?p=274 This low profile Hampton Bay 52 inches Hugger Ceiling Fan, is the perfect fit for low hung ceilings, and anywhere else where the room height has some safety concerns. The fan has reversible blades, maintains the classic white finish, which is well complemented by the bleach oak and white blade finish. There is a centrally placed frosted dome light fixture to provide illumination, but you have to install your own bulb. The unit has a high performance motor, which is effective and silent, giving you a piece of mind, even as you sleep.

Customer review

I had bought this fan for my own personal use, and so when my tenant requested for a ceiling fan, I knew exactly what to get her. The installation process was so simple, that I did it myself in a couple of minutes. The silence of the blades is surreal, that I am considering ordering the fans for all my tenants. The flat bowl design for the light is a great break from the fishbowl design, and your field of vision is not distorted.

Added

My boyfriend helped my put up one of these. The installation seemed easy enough, though it seemed that the screws holding the outer motor were quite a task to unscrew. The instructions are not clear on how you are to loosen the screws, but they came off easily when the unit was in place, so a ladder is necessary. The screws are also made of soft metal, which makes them easily worn out by the screwdriver. The installation instructions could do with a good review, and it would not hurt if the screws were harder in making up than in loosening. Since the installation was done, there has not been a hitch so far. I am still enjoying the smooth and quite a breeze. This is a welcome break from the summer heat.

Hampton Bay Nassau 52 http://marksfans.com/hampton-bay-nassau-52/ http://marksfans.com/hampton-bay-nassau-52/#comments Sat, 21 Sep 2013 08:45:50 +0000 http://marksfans.com/?p=265 This outdoor/ indoor iron finish fan has a rustic finish and a vintage schoolhouse kit for maximum light output.

Its triple capacitor speed control and Power Max motor enables to provide better air movements and is easy to control with smooth operation.

Reviews

After a continuous struggle of four years for quality fan, I finally got the perfect choice of a nice tropical fan. I bought and installed it in my bedroom. It has the qualities of both beauty and smooth operation as described. The sale price of $101 was an attractive offer given the two months back time of order. The only drawback is that its blades should be wrapped individually to avoid from any scratch.

I needed eight tropical ceiling fans 4 for both inside and outside with matching. I was excited to find such a good deal when I found the price. They are light in weight and easy to install. The motor is smooth and one fan had a whine but it got fine the next day. My husband is not fond of the globe, as it seems plastic to him so we might replace it though it still looks nice to me. The blades should be wrapped individually but still it is not that bad. In fact, the blades are quite easy to clean which much better than my expensive ceiling fan. All eight fans are up and could not be much happier.

It is a very beautiful item and very simple to install. The instructions are easy to follow though we got the fan up but later got to know we missed the collar. Therefore, we started again. We would definitely purchase it again if needed.

Hampton Bay Savona 52 Ceiling Fan http://marksfans.com/hampton-bay-savona-52-ceiling-fan/ http://marksfans.com/hampton-bay-savona-52-ceiling-fan/#comments Sat, 21 Sep 2013 08:43:59 +0000 http://marksfans.com/?p=262 Offering classic decor and a stylish design, the Hampton Bay Savona 52 ceiling fan comes in a bronzed, weathered finish. This fan displays Tiffany glass holders surrounding pan-style light fixtures, giving off a warm, hospitable glow. With its five blades, constructed with durable plywood, the Hampton Bay Savona 52 will provide the amount of airflow desired using three different speed settings. This fan can be set to reverse airflow to adjust temperatures.

“We found that having three different speed settings was perfect as we had a choice depending on our situation. We placed this fan in our dining area and were happy that the light’s highest setting was exactly what we had hoped for this area of our home. The fan arrived perfectly balanced and looks wonderful on our 13’ ceiling. We would recommend this fan to anyone looking for a stylish piece at a great price.”

“I am so pleased with this fan! My online order was delivered as promised. We had to involve extra tools and scaffolding to install this fan on our 18’ ceiling, so it took us a bit longer – 3 hours – than typically suggested. We are thrilled with the light ambiance and the look of this fan in our home. The stained glass gives off a warm glow, making our hallway inviting for guests.

The light bulbs are hidden from sight by the design and the fan is very quiet, even with all 3 settings. We especially love the reverse fan feature for our climate. We were able to introduce a 36-inch down rod to work on our high ceiling. The fan is 32 pounds, so it takes a couple of people at least to install it, and a metal install is necessary to hold the fan’s weight. We read some of the online reviews of this fan before purchasing it, and many said that the light was not very bright. This is true, but it is perfect for our space. If you are looking for a fan/light combination reading, this would not be the best choice for you”

Harbor Breeze 52-in Calera http://marksfans.com/harbor-breeze-52-in-calera/ http://marksfans.com/harbor-breeze-52-in-calera/#comments Sat, 21 Sep 2013 08:41:09 +0000 http://marksfans.com/?p=259 “I spent time researching excellent reviews before purchasing two fans with 24” down rods. Once both were installed, I have to say that I am quite disappointed. The down rods were not compatible with the fan base – the rod has threads to screw into something but the base was not threaded. Instead, it required a pin to connect to the down rod. The down rods, which Harbor Breeze claims are universal, were actually much smaller than the base entry point. Because of the misplaced screw positioning on the down rod and the base, the rod cannot be centered so the fan wobbles a lot during its operation. We could not fix this with balance trouble shooting either. If you were to install it with the 4” down rod it comes with, this Harbor Breeze fan would probably be a nice fan and work great for you. Beware if you need to install any add-ons.”

“I have been looking for an outdoors fan to place on my patio and decided to check out Lowes. My day was made when I found out the fan was on sale, too! I chose a fan with a light kit and the weathered bronze finish. I am very happy with my purchase, and it is so nice to feel a breeze while enjoying time on my patio. With a Lowes credit card, I even saved an additional 5%!”

“We were looking for a new outdoor fan to replace our 13-year old screened porch unit and found the Harbor Breeze 52-inch fan. It fits the space perfectly, and the price was just right! The stylish finish gives our porch a modern look and creates a great place to relax. The fan is quiet and so far, we are happy. We have only had it installed in one week so I will have to wait and see how well it stands up over time.”

Harbor Breeze 52-in Tilghman http://marksfans.com/harbor-breeze-52-in-tilghman/ http://marksfans.com/harbor-breeze-52-in-tilghman/#comments Sat, 21 Sep 2013 08:38:08 +0000 http://marksfans.com/?p=256 Our family thought of buying an outdoor fan for our covered porch. We bought one and realized that it was cheaper than any other fans available in the market. Its price was very reasonable considering its style and performance. It was simple to install and fast, because of the simple instructions printed in the manual. It makes our porch looking very stylish. Its short down rod was too good for a slanted porch roof.

I need my patio to be airy. I went to Lowes and saw that this fan was on sale. So I thought of buying it to match the looks of our outdoor. Installation was easy and it makes the area beautiful. Be happy to buy one again if needed.

I love comparing how a product performs what they claim. In addition, this is it. It looks good to enhance our rattan furniture. I had it installed in our patio. It has a tropical effect, which makes the patio look fresher. It includes rubber washers, which make the fan stable and quiet during its performance. There is no such a fan like it.

We had an old and damaged Harbor Breeze fan we bought 10 years ago. We have searched every store in town just to look for another of this kind, because we know it definitely matches all the other fans we have. It ran so silently that we did not notice to be switched on. However, I think we installed it almost near the ceiling and it did not give air, but the light that goes together with it was so nice. Hope someone could help us do something about it.


The person who installed it for me said it was easy doing the job. So I can say that he really got it set up fast though the wiring were tangled inside the housing and that’s where he took some time. Overall, there is no regret having bought it for $88, because of its great look. Hope it will last for long.

Harbor Breeze 72-Inch Slinger Fan http://marksfans.com/harbor-breeze-72-inch-slinger-fan/ http://marksfans.com/harbor-breeze-72-inch-slinger-fan/#comments Sat, 21 Sep 2013 08:37:43 +0000 http://marksfans.com/?p=254 “This is one of the best fans I have ever seen or used! The design is beautiful and the fan control is of high quality. I absolutely love it. Even though it was my most expensive fan purchase to date, I do not regret it at all. I have no complaints since installing it 30 days ago. It is amazing. The installation was a bit difficult because of the size of the fan blades. It was tough to attach the wires after the fan was mounted. It is meant for a large room, so make sure you consider it. The fan runs so quietly; you hardly notice it is on. One problem I did have was the remote for this fan and my other Harbor Breeze fan use the same frequency, so I had trouble figuring out how to change that without any instructions. If you have trouble with this, too, let me know and I can guide you through my set up steps. Thanks Harbor Breeze, for such a great fan!”

“I was specifically looking for a large fan, so I opted to purchase this one. It is huge! It is strong and solidly built, though. The breeze is strong, so you do feel it, but I would have liked a bit stronger breeze. My experience has a few pros and cons, as seen below.

Good

It is easy to install, the blades are light, and it seems to be solid constructed. The fan is very quiet, and it does provide more airflow than any other fan I have tried.

Bad

A stronger airflow would have been my preference. I could have used 2” less on the rod for my 92” ceiling. I find the glass enclosure rather ugly, and the price was quite high considering this aspect. Options for different light and fan switches would be great – both are controlled on the remote, which I do not like. It doesn’t take a standard light bulb, but the one it requires is only $10.”
