Customer Questions & Answers

is this an outdoor fan

Asked by: coco
If it doesn't specifically state it's designed to operate outside, I'd wager the answer to your question, is no.

Is there a dome-style light kit with three lights, similar to the builder deluxe, that I can use with this fan?

We want a really nice, bright light fixture on this fan. It should be similar in style to the Hunter Builder Deluxe's light kit, but with three lights. Can anyone recommend one?
Asked by: BrianK
No, but you can add it.

Hi Noonie, We do apologize for the confusion but the Builder Elite model is indeed manufactured with a total of 5 blades. Have a great day!

They were easy to install and work quietly and vibration free. However both units had quality problems: The first fan I installed was missing a bag of small bolts which I supplied. The second fan had a delaminated fan blade as well as small part was missing from the pull chain. I contacted Hunter and requested replacement parts. They asked me to provide pictures of the problems which I did. I have not received any feedback since providing the requested information (1 week ago).

Had to purchase fan down rod separately. Downrod was not suggested In the first place based on the ceiling height and also had to buy long speed control chains separately.. bought 6 fans , but one of those boxes didn't have all the said parts.

This is another great fan from the company whose name has become legendary in ceiling fans. I have had Hunter ceiling fans for about 50 years and every one has been a great fan. This model was relatively easy to install in the builder installed 60# ceiling boxes with the included hanging bracket.You may need to buy 10-32 screws about 1 1/4" long to install the bracket as the fan kit does not include those. The instructions are excellent! Overall a great fan.

Swapping the included downrod for a longer on was easy and the fan comes with plenty of wire to support very long extension. The fan's simple style works well in the room and so far it is working great. Would give it an excellent rating but I haven't had it long enough to comment on long-term performance.

We purchased (3) of these Hunter Ceiling Fans, and not only are they beautiful, they run completely silent. We've had them for about a month now, and they are so pretty in the Oil Rubbed Bronze. Hunter is the only brand of ceiling fans we would ever buy. We had them in our old house, and in 20-years we never had even one problem. These new ones are in our new house and they're just perfect.
