Product Review

The transitional, five-blade indoor/outdoor damp rated ceiling fan has a look that balances well with almost any decor. It features a oil rubbed bronze finish, choose between different styles and color blades (sold separately). This fan features a six-speed reversible switch that allows for summer/winter operation. The fan provides airflow at up to 7,929 cubic feet per minute (cfm) at its highest speed when using the 60-inch width.

It is highly efficient and rated to operate at 21 watts at high speed (without the lighting on), which gives it an airflow efficiency rating of 342 cfm per watt (60-inch blades). (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 200 square feet and up (roughly 10 by 20 feet with 54-inch blades), the Petite utilizes a 165 millimeter EcoMotor. The Emerson Carrera Grande Eco can have a light kit attach (sold separately). The hand carved blades (sold separately) have a 16-degree pitch.

  • Ceiling fans can save you money in winter (Reverse Blade Direction) as well as summer: up to 10 percent in heating costs and up to 40 percent in air conditioning costs.
  • 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 Emerson fan is backed by a lifetime motor warranty and a one-year warranty on all other parts.
