Product Review

A bold design that draws inspiration from the ocean’s waves.

Offering a refined, contemporary style, three-blade indoor ceiling fan has a look that balances well with almost any decor. It features a distressed koa finish and three wave-shaped distressed koa Abs construction blades. This fan features a whisper-quiet motor with a 3-speed reversible switch that allows for customizing air movement. It is used with a remote control.

The fan provides airflow at up to 6,580 cubic feet per minute (cfm) at its highest speed. It is rated to operate at 66 watts at high speed (without the lighting on), which gives it an airflow efficiency rating of 99 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 up to 400 square feet (20 by 20 feet), the Wave utilizes a 172-by-14-millimeter motor for powerful, quiet air circulation. The Minka-Aire Wave’s abs blades have a average pitch of 48-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 Minka-Aire fan is backed by a lifetime motor warranty and a one-year warranty on all other parts.
