Product Review

The contemporary, eight-bladed outdoor-wet rated ceiling fan has a industrial modern look. It features a brushed nickel finish with silver color blades. This fan features a six-speed reversible switch that allows for summer/winter operation. The fan provides airflow at whopping 8,778 cubic feet per minute (cfm) at its highest speed. It is highly efficient and rated to operate at 28 watts at high speed (without the lighting on), which gives it an airflow efficiency rating of 314 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 x 20 feet), the Slipstream features a super efficient DC motor that consumes up to 75% less energy than other fans. The Minka-Aire Slipstream is energy star rated. Has a 14 degree blade pitch. Blades are made with ABS construction.

  • Placement is important. Install the ceiling fan with the blades 10 to 12 inches below the ceiling and 7 to 9 feet above the floor.

This Minka-Aire fan is backed by a lifetime motor warranty and a one-year warranty on all other parts.
