Product Review

The traditional, five-blade outdoor-wet rated ceiling fan has a look that balances well with almost any decor. It features a weathered bronze finish and medium oak blades. This fan features a three-speed reversible switch that allows for summer/winter operation. The fan provides airflow at up to 5,498 cubic feet per minute (cfm) at its highest speed. It is efficient quiet and rated to operate at 58 watts at high speed (without the lighting on), which gives it an airflow efficiency rating of 95 cfm per watt. (As a comparison, 36-inch to 48-inch ceiling fans have airflow efficiency ranging from approximately 71 to 86 cfm per watt at high speed.) Designed for rooms starting at 400 square feet and up (roughly 20 by 20 feet), the sea air utilizes a 172 millimeter WhisperWind motor. The Hunter Sea Air can have a light kit attach (sold separately). The fan has a 12-degree pitch.

This Hunter fan is backed by a lifetime motor warranty.
