Answer: 
About 70 RPM. It turns much slower than other fans since the blades are long and curved. While it does a decent job of moving air, I prefer the 60 inch fans as they have a higher speed on high and in my opinion, move even more air.

Would this work in a two story foyer grand stair case?

This question is from Altura 68 in. Oil Rubbed Bronze Ceiling Fan
Asked by

August 28, 2016
I have one of these fans in a great room and love it (2 1/2 years old). Now we are moving to a home with a two story hallway, foyer, grand stair case. There is a non-working fan that needs replacing. I need a fan that will circulate air between floors in summer and winter to help regulate temperature. Has anyone used this fan in a similar application? I would want to use the 12 inch option for upstairs hall safety. Would the 56 inch fan be bettter?

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. The 68" version moves more air than the 56" or 60" version. We do not recommend using the 68" with a shorter downrod as doing so would decrease the available air between the fan and ceiling and may decrease overall airflow. If the fan can not be used with the included downrod, we would suggest using the 56" version.

Answer: 
Yes - it would probably look nice. However, perhaps a 60 inch would be better. The 60" has higher fans speeds and would move more air for the large area.

Answer: 
Either size fan should work, since you are trying to move more air between floors I would get the larger diameter if it will work clearance wise . Since this fan is designed to work at lower speeds it moves the air by having larger blades . So the larger the blade will move more Air and in your circumstance a benefit.

Answer: 
Chrome is not the same color . If you can't find Bronze that suits you black is also a good option.

Answer: 
You may have to buy what you like and paint it. There's not much in the way of bronze light kits
Model #13431101502300 - Model LK8559-ORB - Model 3171+9627. These are light kits that should fit the fan but you may have to do some innovative engineering to make them work.

Answer: 
Unfortunately no. When the power is turned off at a wall switch, then turned back on, you have to use the remote to activate the fan.

I called and was told it cannot. I also had an electrician tell me the same thing. I wish it could and you could just bypass that dreaded receiver for the remote.

You can purchase a remote wall switch that will work without modifying the fan wireing . The switch fits into a singal gang box or can be mounted anwhere since its not hardwired to power.
If you were to modify the fan by removing the remote sensor and direct wire to the fan motor will work. Of course the switch location will need to be the part of the fan circuit. Make sure the proper switch is used Read More

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 236 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Big fan of this fan Fan looks great installed and good quality overall. Moves lots of air in a big vaulted-ceilinged room. We keep wall switch on and use the remote for speed/direction. Installed on a beam in a room with a high ceiling--lots of quiet air flow. Install was fairly straightforward. Thought of getting a light kit but prefer the looks without it. Would recommend this. August 10, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Just what I wanted We had to replace are existing fan. The only thing it lacked was a light, but could be added for an additional cost. You choose from 4 models of lights. This was extremely heavy, and requires two people to lift securely, could be done with one if you mechanically inclined. July 26, 2016
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 Nice looking fan, b Nice fan, looks great, moves a lot of air, but, don't expect the fan to last long. In less than two years the remote receive no longer works. Hampton says there is a two month delay in getting the part. Researching the internet you can see the remote receiver is a real problem. Save your money, go purchase a better quality fan from a manufacturer that has the real time support in place. My Altura at this point is no better than a decorative item garnishing my ceiling. September 7, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful and when working, displaces a lot of air However, we've had this fan 3 years and in those 3 years the receiver has been replaced 3 times. The original, 1 we got for free and now we're waiting on the replacement part that is currently on 2 weeks backorder. We've only had a week of solid 100 degree days but what's another 2 weeks. If we had to pay for the 1st replacement we would already be in half of what we paid for this fan. If it breaks again, we'll be replacing the fan and not with another Home Depot product. Which is a shame because this fan is stunning in our living room and really moves a lot of air but I'm not going to keep replacing a defective part for a subpar fan. July 29, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by please dont buy same story as everyone else. it stopped working after two years. called home depot they told me to call the manufacture. i called them and the part was on back order and the part was not covered.. the part was $50.00 plus shipping. its been a month and no call back. maybe that's why they didn't take my credit card info. this fan was over $229.00 and it only worked for two years. no one can figure out what's wrong with it. I have extra wall switches however only one will work. so, you have to use their remote for the light and fan. you cant hard wire it on the wall plates . please don't buy this fan. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful fan This is the third one of these fans that I have purchased, two for my former home, this one for my new home. It provides great airflow for a large room and looks very stylish in my comfortable, contemporary home. August 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by seems to be a great fan! Wanted a large fan for a large room, this fan puts out a breeze at low speeds very happy with purchase. August 30, 2016
