Answer: 
Thank you for your interest in the Altura fan. Yes, this fan can be installed in the room you described. Great room fans, like the Altura, are designed for rooms larger than 18x18ft.

Answer: 
Yes but you might need to extend the power cable or replace it. the specs say that the cord will acomadate a 48 inch extension. They also mention extending the cord for longer extensions. As for the square feet of the room this shouldn't be an issue as they state a 20 X 20 room in there description. If you want the fan lower to the floor the best you can do is 72 inch 3/4 extension availble at homedepot. Read More

As for the square feet of the room this shouldn't be an issue as they state a 20 X 20 room in there description. If you want the fan lower to the floor the best you can do is 72 inch 3/4 extension availble at homedepot. Not sure they make them any longer .for your install you wouldn't want to go more than 96 inches without a light kit 84 with a light kit. So being at 72 isn't that bad. I did a pool house with this fan which has 20 foot peeks the mounting box is at 18 feet and used a 48 inch extension which for my purpose works great . I didn't want the fan so low. The fan moves plenty of air .
Keep in mind this fan is designed to move slower and move lots of air . It's not really to turn on high so you are feeling high pressure blowing . That being said mounting it higher isn't an issue. If you can find my original review FrankieG there are pictures of my installation along with other reviews that have the fan mounted higher in large rooms.
If you do splice the cord I would recommend cutting the cord near the fan and install a new longer cord from there so the splice is accessible along with not having to struggle getting the splice down thru the extension pipe. Read Less

It IS made for larger rooms. Just so you know, the larger the ceiling fan the more the air gets spread out, so the breeze may feel less concentrated. But, we have this fan in a similarly sized room (about 18x18) and there is a HUGELY noticeable difference between having it on and not. You can literally feel the breeze off the blades.

Our ceilings are 12 feet tall, our sofa sits against the wall about 9-10 feet from the edge of the blades and I can feel it nicely right now. We also have it in a bedroom that's about 15x12. The bed is in the middle of the 15 foot wall, the breeze is noticeable there also, in a good way. Not overpowering. Please read the comments made about the issues with the receiver. Read Less

Thank you for your question. The Altura is compatible with any of the universal ceiling fan light kits sold at The Home Depot, but for the best appearance, we would suggest the Hampton Bay 3-light kit (model # 64169) or the Hampton Bay 2-light kit (model # 72199R). Both of these light kits were designed to complement the Altura fans.

Answer: 
The bottom of this fan has a "cover" where a light kit goes. The diameter of this switch cup measures 8", so you'd want to look at light kits having a diameter no larger than the 8" to give you that tailored look.
Incidentally, we absolutely love this fan. It's stunning, and really unlike any other fan you'll find in the stores.

It might be the receiver inside the fan that "talks to" the remote. In fact, if the batteries are good in your remote I'd have to say that's more than likely the problem.

It might be the receiver inside the fan that "talks to" the remote. In fact, if the batteries are good in your remote I'd have to say that's more than likely the problem. The receiver is in the round part of the fan that hangs down from the rest. If you don't have a light on your fan the receiver is where it looks like a light should go. If you take that round part off, with the couple of screws on the side, you can let it hang down and see the receiver, a round metal disc (looks like a shiny hockey puck) with 2 sets of wires coming off it. We have had to replace ours MANY times at a cost of about $50 a pop. Hampton Bay made our fan so we called their 800 number and ordered a new one. This receiver problem is a HUGE issue with this fan. Power surges can fry them but we were also told if you ever use the wall switch as opposed to the remote to turn it on/off, that could also kill the receiver. It's a pain but we love the fan.

Sorry to hear that your Altura is not working. One reason may be the fan experienced a power surge that possibly reset the remote receiver in the fan. Please try to re-pair the remote with the fan. Start the process by turning the main house power off (either wall switch or breaker). Then, return the power to the fan (wall switch or breaker).

Sorry to hear that your Altura is not working. One reason may be the fan experienced a power surge that possibly reset the remote receiver in the fan. Please try to re-pair the remote with the fan. Start the process by turning the main house power off (either wall switch or breaker). Then, return the power to the fan (wall switch or breaker). Within 30 seconds of turning the fan’s power ON, press and hold the power button on your remote control for 10 seconds. Once the receiver has detected the set frequency, the down light
of your fan, if applicable, will blink twice. There is no indication if your fan is not equipped with a light. To confirm the remote control and receiver have paired successfully press the “1” button on your remote control. The fan should start running again. If that doesn't help, please call customer service at 1-800-986-3460 and one of our team members will help you troubleshoot and get your fan running again.

If you still don't get it to,work check the wireing to the fan to make sure all the wires are properly connected and nothing has fallen off. If they are ok check with the proper volt meter if you have power at the connection point of the fan. If this is beyond your DYI scope call an electrician or skilled handyman, but try doing the next step in my answer before calling someone.
If there is power re (pair) you remote control to the fan . Sometimes the remote will loose the pairing when batteries are changed or something gets shorted or tripped. Your installation manual has this information. You can also visit homedepot.com if you no loner have instructions . See my attached screen shots for the basics.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 591 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good looking fan, quality ? Average at best. Installed the 68" fan today, this baby is heavy, you might want to have a real fan box to hang it from. Id also note, the drop for this, is for a 10' ceiling or taller. I installed on a 9' ceiling, which required some light modifying work. My only complaint, with only have running it for a couple hours, the motor hums, and the hum is not constant, it has a frequency to it, up and down. Some might not notice it, Im almost deaf, but I can hear it. The irony, the box claims the fan has, and I quote " quiet motor technology plus ". Yeah, good thing it does, because if it didnt, it might be competing with your blender. And Im making reference to low speed, it just hums more as you turn up the speed. This is an electromagnetic hum, not a machine vibrating hum. This thing is well balanced, not shaking or vibrating, but the motor hums, much like the sound of electricity coming from high power lines, just to be clear. This one might be defective, or they all might hum, dont know ? Ive only owned Hunter brand ceiling fans in previous homes, including this one, and prefer the quality of the hunters, but i really like the style of this fan, I would have paid more $ for it, if it was of higher quality. Hunter does not sell anything that looks like this either, I looked. April 29, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Chinese Quality at American Pricing Right out of the box, a beautiful piece of junk that does not work. It has one speed (pictured) which is stop. Power goes to receiver, fan does nothing. I am angry, so I am going to stop typing. April 14, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Three Altura fans purchased...all lasted for two years and then died These fans install easily, but use a proprietary remote control system. Installed three of these in our house, the receiver died on our bedroom fan first. Tried to find a replacement...no dice. Decided to see if I could figure out how to wire it with a generic one. No dice there either. The receiver has about 10 wires coming out of it, nothing like a universal. Sure enough as soon as I replaced the bedroom fan, our bonus room died...followed by the great room today. That one is 17 feet in the air...gonna be lots of fun to replace. I'll never buy another one of these fans. May 21, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful fan, but....... This fan is beautiful, but has a very short life. It was not expensive, until you consider it was shipped to the Caribbean and we were taxed (not supposed to have been) in the U.S. then again in the Caribbean, and they charge tax on the total including the U.S. tax and the shipping charges! That would be fine if the fan worked a reasonable amount of time, but this worked less than a year after installation. We tried the troubleshooting that we read about, but still will not turn on. Now we are back to ordering another fan, or in this case 2 regular size fans to be shipped to us. Guess we are going with old fashioned hunters that last forever! April 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great fan - Great Home Depot Customer Support We bought three of these fans and installed two in our bedroom (12' ceilings). The third one was going to go in a family room with a 9' ceiling. These fans need clearance from the ceiling so they will not mount up close. This said, you need a tall/vaulted ceiling to mount these. They look great and are good quality. The blades are real wood and not plastic that just looks like wood. They move a lot of air even at low speed. Our contractors were cleaning up and threw away the fan boxes. Unfortunately our fan remotes were still in the boxes and we lost them. You cannot control these fans from a wall switch speed control since they do not have the appropriate wiring. Therefor we could not use our fans without replacement remotes. These use a remote that is a different frequency from most and replacement ones are impossible to find. I emailed Home Decorators and they were worthless and referred me back to Home Depot even after I said I just wanted to buy replacements. Filled out something on the Home Depot website and someone called me within the hour. Even after explaining our situation, they mailed us replacement remotes and no charge. January 18, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by please don't These are the worst. I purchased one of these fans a couple of years ago, based on the looks and the massive amount of air flow they put out. One of my friends recommended it to me so I took the plunge. Later to find out these fans have a terrible issue with the receiver in the fan. My friend are on their 5th, my first one burnt out the motor and receiver controller not 2 years in. Please stay away, the controller will literally burn over time. May 6, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Large fan and very quiet. Beautiful fan and extremely quiet. Finish on the blades could have been better. Sloppy finish work on the blades made it look cheaper. One of the bolts in the blade housing was defective and no extras included. Also, the instructions did not tell you how to remove the remote receiver to install a "universal" light kit. Had to go on-line to find out how. May 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very happy Very happy, purchased two two years ago for my old house, just bought six more for my new house. Fan moves lots of air even at low speed. Quiet and dependable. No wobbles. May 10, 2016
