I can't tell you a lot about this fan, 'cause I didn't install it. While making an attempt at installing, I was immediately disappointed that the blue on the glass globe is wrong...it's much lighter than the web pics (& the box pics), sort of a translucent, grayish, cerulean blue (for you artists...see pic). I see from other reviews of other similar models, they had the same problem. The blue color is the main reason I chose this model, the blue & white was supposed to match my portable air conditioner (see pic). (Also, it's a bit of a stretch to call it “hand-painted”...it's not, really). So, bad start for this fan. I called Hunter customer service, they were sympathetic to the problem, but said the fan was too new, they didn't have any parts yet, call back in 2-3 months about a possible replacement globe...ok, then, thank you.
Then I discovered the mounting bracket screw holes were too wide apart for my older-style mounting box (where my current fan is mounted)...I'm hoping it's just because of this style base...so I made the decision to give up, too much hassle & not enough return for my effort. Looks like I'll have to find a different location for this fan.
