My cool ceiling fan

waltbscApril 23, 2011

Even though I consider myself a handy guy I HATE playing electrician. I have terrible luck and something ALWAYS comes up when I attempt this line of work. This time the house wiring was too short so I ended up having to notch the drywall to install a junction box for a longer wire.

I think the fan looks great and fits right in with the rest of our room. It's a Fanimation Mariano. The remote that comes with it is rather cheap looking/feeling and I expected more for what it cost but that is something that can always be changed!

That is so awesome. I actually bought that exact same on for my family room. It's still sitting the box along with all the other lights for the new house. Hopefully, they will start going up in a couple weeks.

that IS a cool fan. On my screen it shows as somewhat of an optical illusion and my first thought after reading your electrical challenges was, "Oh no, who's going to tell him he installed the blades upside down?" But as I looked at it more I could see they were as they should be.

Love the light fixture! So pretty. Does it move air??

Now that the sun is setting in SC I have to say I'm pleasantly surprised in how much light the 2 13W CFL's produce.

As far as air movement, we have a very nice breeze in our 17x22 room on medium. High is great in all parts of the room and I can still feel slight movement in my corner when it's on low. The fan is built like a tank and doesn't move at all at any speed.

Minka-Aire has Fanimation beat when it comes to installation but they're both above average, IMO, when it comes to operation.

That is so neat! That is the best looking light I have ever seen on a ceiling fan I think - they clearly put some design and thought into that - that is going to wonderful this summer!
