I agree that Hunter has an excellent fan but they also have an excellent warrantee. Most if not all have a 50 year warrantte. A few years ago they also bought out Casablanca which I thought was the best out. I worked 3 1/2 years at a major home warehouse and their store brand fans were also very good if you stay away from the low end items. If you can install on downrod fans are more efficient than if flush or ceiling hugger style. Suggested height from floor to bottom of fan(or light) shuld not be less tha 7 feet.
