We bought this fan for our pergola because the existing fan did not move much air. After reading the reviews, we chose this one and are very happy with it. The area is around 15X15, and you can feel the breeze all around. It's quiet and well made. My husband is very experienced in fan installation, and very fussy when it comes to quality. He had no complaints or negative comments. Also, you can't beat the price for an outdoor rated fan. I was all over the internet looking for a bargain, and

This fan was a breeze to assemble and equally easy to install. I installed two of them on our back porch and they move a lot of air, more than enough on high and plenty on medium! After trying a 4600 CFM Harbor Breeze and two 6882 CFM Home Decorator Collections fans that just did not preform that well, I'm glad I took them back and gave these a try. My wife is happy with the appearance and I'm happy with the performance.

This fan moves a lot of air!
If you want to move a lot of air, this is the fan to get. Relatively easy to install, however, you may need two people to hold it while you attach it to the ceiling mount because it's heavier than other fans. Instructions warn not to connect it to a plastic electrical junction box - it will not support the weight of the fan - you need to use a metal box. Overall, we are well pleased with the fan.
Triangle swivel ?? If you were to put this on a cathedral ceiling you would have to watch the pivoting direction in which you mount the base, old fans had a ball and socket, I don’t know if the ball socket was patented, but triangle seems like an under thought out design to me. The drop down adapters are so close in length that it should have come with a longer one for slanted cathedral ceilings. In our bedroom I used the shorter one. When I mounted this in the bedroom, I noticed it does not

The tip is noticeable but fan works great on medium and high. Low speed is kind of worthless and you barely feel any air movement, so if you had this outside under a porch good luck, speeds need a little more voltage and kicked up a notch. A plus is that I have never heard a ceiling fan this quiet. This fan is Smooth running and easy to clean because of the smooth plastic blades. I am looking into a light kit, I think at this price it should have come with one. I have been using this every night for a month and notice that in the morning the housing is warm from running all night. You will need an extra set of hands to make install easy, I installed this by myself though and it did take a bit longer than it probably should have. Rated as a wet application, yeah, I would not do that but it probably was a typo.

I love the fresh, white look of this fan. It's beautiful, quiet and is quite easy to install. The fan comes with both a 2" and 3" downrod. I used the 3" as the patio where it was installed has a bit of a slant to the roof. With this fan, you are able to wire it so that you use a light switch or a pull chain for the on/off functions. I am so pleased with this fan that I bought another one to use on the other side of the patio. Be aware that this fan doesn't come with a light kit, but you can

Nice patio fan!
The hunter fan that we bought and installed has been a welcome addition to our recently covered patio. We wanted a place that we could relax out of the sun but needed airflow to give us a reprieve from the heat of the day.
This Hunter fan has done just that. Our patio is covered but not enclosed and the fan offers much needed airflow when it heats up outside. I'm glad we purchased this product.
Excellent Hunter Quality, Installation Instructions Just OK
This is a quality product. Well made, and we didn't have to balance it (even though balancing kit and instructions were included). Installation instructions did not address use of two-way switch. Also, instructions could have better highlighted location of some of the hardware (fan mounting screws, that instead of being with the rest of the screws, were in the fan unit itself to secure during shipping). Time will tell if the plastic fan blades will not droop from Arizona heat. (We have it

Hunter makes a good quiet fan. I have two of these fans, one installed inside the family room and another out on a covered balcony. Both work flawlessly and I expect years of quiet service.

Easy install, great performance
I have previously installed many fans including this brand. Certain changes in it's design made this fan the easiest fan I have ever installed. The look and performance are on par with the more expensive fans. I would recommend this product to everyone.
Great Fan but some assembly is required. However, that said, it so quiet you don't even know it is on except for feeling the circulating air hitting you. Our Harbor Breeze fans died on us after only 2.5 years - happy to spend more to get a Much better fan w/lights

Exactly what we wanted
The fan looks great in our bedroom, was easy to install, and works like a charm. It is exactly what we were looking for in terms of having a nice elegant look/style in addition to actual fan performance.

The only thing I would change is the size of the light bulb that goes in it.
Excellent product. Very snug to ceiling and well made.
This fan is perfect for those looking for a real hugger mount. Our ceiling in our sun room is low so that was important. This design is very sleek. It is also of high quality...very quiet and the antique brass finish is beautiful with a very bright sheen. Directions were clear and assembly was easy - especially with the built in hook for hanging the motor while you do the wiring. Packaging was excellent as well. I am very pleased with the product and the experience.

Really surprised how easy it was to install. It replaced a fan that we bought when we first first built this house (1992) and really adds class to the room. I'm 75 and had no trouble installing it so you younger guys/gals should have it up and running in 15 minutes. Hunter makes a great product and stands behind them. It will run 24/7 here in sunny (Hot/humid/miserable) Georgia and you can't hear it running.
Great buy and it was here 4 days after I ordered it online.

Replaced an existing fan with this. Easy assembly and installation. Fan looks very nice!
Brought this fan looking to replace the broken ceiling fan in my bedroom. The first observation was the lighting. My goodness, i was blown away at the difference between the old and new. I'm happy. I'm buying two more tomorrow.

So far so good
Looks great. Was a little more complicated to install than some other ceiling fans I have installed but once installed it runs and looks great. No wobble. I plan to buy several more of these.
Regarding wiring, I wanted the light to be switched from the wall without having to use the light pull chain (although one can use the light pull chain to switch the light on and off if the wall switch is on) and the fan to be powered all the time so control is by the fan pull chain. The instructions did

Exactly what we wanted.
We needed a fan to replace one which had simply quit working. This one is even better than the old one. We especially like the fact that the light fixture attached accepts standard size light bulbs.
Expensive fan, but is well made with a great mounting system. Easy to hang in a house with modern construction methods (i.e., able to lag bolt into joist); might be more challenging in older, pre-1960 house.

No better fan
I have purchased 3 of these fans from Home Depot over the years and can only say that they are excellent. They have a retro look but they will fit almost any décor. If you require a fan that will last, ALWAYS RUN SILENTLY and never require servicing, this is for you. Uniquely, the fan bearing runs in a bath of oil, hence the smooth, silent running. A tube of oil ships with the fan and you actually squeeze it into a hole atop the fan body prior to installation. The fan has a cast body, is heavy
