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
Perhaps you should take a look at the link below. It looks just like the one without light. I have one and replaced the factory bulbs with 3, GE 60 watt equivalent daylight LED Candelabra bulbs. They are VERY bright. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Builder-Plus-52-in-Indoor-3-Light-Brushed-Nickel-Ceiling-Fan-53237/204468801 http://www.homedepot.com/s/ge%20led%20candelabra?NCNI-5

Asked by: Noonie
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!

Can this fan be use with a 8" ceiling height??

Asked by: Ab
Ours is installed with a 8 ft ceiling height. I'm 6'2" and my head is still under the chain that controls the fan speed.

Unit arrived with several of the blade attachment screws with damaged/no threads. Fortunately I have an M5 die so I was able to cut threads. Got the fan up and the motor had something stuck inside the motor casing itself so it hangs up and makes a loud clicking sound. Called Home Depot and they said I needed to take it to a store for a refund as it would be much easier (for them, saves shipping) and order another one online (not available for store purchase, online only) I asked for expedited shipping on the replacement, but that isn't available. So now, no light and no fan until it arrives as my original one was taken down. Valuable lesson, don't buy online from HD and don't by Hunter. Not a happy customer.

Ive used this model before and it is very versatile. on a budget it will work off of a switched outlet, or it will operate with a remote control kit, and you can add a lite kit if desired.

Because they're all white, they don't lower the ceiling, since they're practically invisible. They were hung by a worker so they are perfectly balanced, no matter how fast the speed. No noise either. Only sound is the wind when on top speed and that's not bad. One in each room is a great look. I read many reviews about this brand (Hunter) before I ordered and they were all very good. I wasn't disappointed. Thank you.

This is the 2nd time I've ordered merchandise online through Home Depot. Not a single problem. The Hunter fan - Used an electrician friend to do the installation. Took approximately 45 minutes and it was up and running. The chain used to control the speeds is almost totally motionless, even on high. Appearance - What else can I say other than this is one nice looking fan. Every bit as good as the photos Sound - I saw a couple reviews complaining about it's loudness on high. Maybe their installation wasn't as good as mine because mine is VERY quiet on high speed. Air movement - YEAH...it moves a lot of air when on high blowing down when I tested it. I have it on reverse right now and medium is plenty for my 14' x 20' computer room. When summer rolls around this fan is going to be very nice.

It replaced a fan that finally gave out after twenty years. It was easy to install. I did not have any balancing issues and it is very quiet. It has been in place for 3 months and I hope it lasts another 20 years.
