Product Review

A traditional style, five-blade indoor ceiling fan has a look that balances well with almost any rustic decor. It features a new bronze finish and five reversible cabin home/walnut finished blades. This fan features a WhisperWind® motor with a 3-speed  and reversible switch that allows for customizing air movement. Remote control is not included but can be purchased with a kit.

The fan provides airflow at up to 3,516 cubic feet per minute (cfm) at its highest speed. It is rated to operate at 60 watts at high speed (without the lighting on), which gives it an airflow efficiency rating of 59 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 with 75 square feet (about 8 by 9 feet), but not more than a 10 x 10 room. The Watson utilizes a 153-by-15-millimeter WhisperWind® motor for powerful, quiet air circulation. The Hunter Watson’s blades have a pitch of 13-degrees.

Tips

  • 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 Hunter 52090 Watson fan is backed by a limited-lifetime motor warranty.
