 ==== ====Ceiling fan rotation matters in cooling, heating & circulating the air in a room.http://www.ceilingfanrotation.org ==== ====Hunter ceiling fans are without doubt the best you can buy, here we have put together all theinformation you might need to know about ceiling fans before purchasing, please bear in mind thatthere are other ceiling fan manufacturers out there who copy Hunter ceiling fan designs but theyare nowhere near as good, the materials they use are not as high quality and they cannot copyhunter ceiling fans patents such as whisper-wind and wobble-free technology, no-one else canmatch the Hunter lifetime warranty on the motor either, so while many ceiling fans may look "justlike a Hunter," remember all ceiling fans are not created equal... Most Hunter ceiling fans have a reverse option which is especially important to reduce heating billsin the winter, warm air can be directed down to where it is needed by spinning the ceiling fanclockwise. Some points to consider when buying a ceiling fan: - How much air is actually being circulated? - How efficiently will the fan move air? - How quiet or noisy is the fan? - Will the fan wobble? - How long will the fan last? - How durable is the finish? - Will the manufacturer stand behind the warranty? 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 airmovement is blade pitch. The greater the pitch-the angle of the blade-the greater the airmovement providing the blade pitch has been properly harmonized with the motor. Unlike Huntersome manufacturers skimp on materials and don't use large enough or powerful enough motors tosupport proper blade pitch. So they compromise on blade pitch, sacrificing proper air movement toreduce the stress on undersized or under-powered motors. Many fans also use extra thin bladesto reduce cost. The reduced blade surface area means reduced air movement. Why Many Fans Are Less Efficient
 The amount of energy a fan consumes plus the volume of air the fan moves determines the fan'soverall efficiency. Small, low wattage motors may use little energy, but they also move very littleair, resulting in very inefficient fans, Hunter fans are built to shift a lot of air. Why Many Fans Are Noisy An electrical humming created when a ceiling fan is running is usually the result of poorengineering 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 operatingnoise. A lack of proper dampening between metal parts can also create and intensify noise, as canthe use of extra thin sheet metal motor and mounting system parts. Hunter fans only use the bestmaterials available. Why Many Fans Wobble Many factors can produce fan wobble. Substandard blade materials and improper blade sealingcan produce blades that absorb moisture and warp-a prime source of wobble. Blades that are notmatched in carefully weighed and balanced sets can also wobble. Inconsistent blade mountingbrackets can create varying degrees of pitch (blade angle), throwing a fan into an unbalancedwobble. And poorly manufactured motors have rotors that can easily get out of balance,generating wobble from the very heart of the fan. Inexpensive mounting systems with pin fastenerscan also contribute to wobble. Hunter fans have a patented wobble free canopy which meansHunter fans are always straight. Common Reasons Substandard Fans Break Down Prematurely Motor size and blade pitch are not specified and matched correctly. Improperly installed on/off pullchains can become faulty and be pulled out of the housing. Inadequate quality, testing,manufacturing and inspection procedures send poor quality fans to market. Defective motorwindings can lead to electrical shorts in the motor. Low quality fan bearings may be "shielded" onone side only, allowing dust to enter and cause premature failure. Inexpensive materials, poorengineering, and substandard manufacturing processes are used to create "bargain" fans. Why Brass Finishes Are Not Alike In the beginning all brass finishes look great. Then tarnish and dark spots begin to appear. Youmay 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 betweenmultiple plating processes. To help determine the quality of a plated finish, look at the surfaceclosely for scratches or unevenness of finish. Does the surface spot easily? If so, avoid the fan.Can you feel a smooth protective coating? That's a sign of the kind of quality you'll find in thefamous Hunter Bright Brass Finish. 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 makesure that they are above head height. Why a Hunter ceiling fan warranty makes a difference Hunter backs its fans with a lifetime limited motor warranty, and backs that warranty with nearly120 years in the ceiling fan business. No other manufacturer has that kind of record to stand on.So you get the peace of mind of knowing you've got the best-backed warranty in the business! How much air do ceiling fans move? Ceiling fan air movement is measured in CFM, or cubic feet per minute. The greater the CFM, themore air that is being moved. The air moved by the fan creates a wind chill effect that makes youfeel more comfortable in a warm room. There is a direct relationship between air movement andcomfort - the more air moved, the greater the wind chill effect. Hunter fans generally move moreair than competitive models because of custom-engineered motors and blades pitched at themaximum possible angle. 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 windnoise 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 airdelivery How do I know what size fan to purchase - there are so many sizes available? You need to choose the right size fan for a room to get optimum looks, comfort and energysavings. If the fan is too small for the room, it will not move enough air to make you feelcomfortable. If the fan is too big, it could move too much air. Hunter recommends the following: • 100 sq foot 30"-42" Ceiling fan • 400 sq foot 48"-54" Ceiling fan • Larger rooms use at least 56" Ceiling fan 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 systemkeeps the main bearings lubricated at all times, for quiet operation and long-life. It is part of thereason why this fan has a limited lifetime motor warranty. Most other fans use motors that do notrequire oil. What makes the Hunter Original so unique in the market compared to all other fans? The Hunter Original is the most unique ceiling fan on the market, with a design that dates back to
