Carrera Grande Eco 5 Blade Indoor / Outdoor Energy Star Ceiling Fan - Wall Control Included & Light Kit Adaptable
Silent and well made
Had an electrician install this DC fan in my 2 story family room where having a reversible function from the ground level was critical. He was quite impressed by the unit and kept saying what a well built fan this was while he was installing it. He did have to refer to the manual to get the fan working, but once the programming/pairing was complete, the fan worked like a charm.
The fan is totally silent even at top speed, when all you can hear is the whoosh of the air flow. It reverses beautifully at the touch of a button. The only disappointment is that the Oiled Bronze finish looks very dark (almost black).

Best Fan Ever
This fan is amazing. It cools the room on the lowest setting. I haven't had it during the heat of the summer so will probably need to increase the speed then. It is practically silent and the simple white design blends in with my somewhat eclectic furnishings. It came with a wall control which I hadn't intended to use. I am accustomed to the pull chains on my other fans. This fan doesn't support pull chains; the wall control is the only way to operate it. Although I was somewhat reluctant to use it, my son patiently walked me through its operation until I met his seal of approval.

Best Fan for the Money
I have a large living room and replaced a fan with the Carrera Grande Eco fan. This fan is quiet and moves the air throughout the room. Reversing the fan for winter use could not be easier with one button on the control. No more flipping a switch on the fan body. With a large room and 12 foot ceilings I added the 31 inch blades and they look great and with the dc motor will save energy during continuous winter usage recirculating the warm air. I looked at many different brands and am delighted with the Carrera. I highly recommend this fan to anyone in need of a great ceiling fan! Build.com had the best price and I received the product faster than expected. Great product, great service, and great price!!!

Do your research
And you will see that this is one of the best, if not the best, fan in terms of efficiency and air movement. We have three in our apartment and are very pleased. Considering that it's only going to get warmer, ceiling fans are a great way to lower your overall utility costs. We run the a/c at about 79 or 80 degs during heat waves and the ceiling fans keep us comfortable. It's very quiet and looks nice too.

Purchased two fans for a vacation home we built. One is in our great room, very high ceiling and the other in the master bedroom.
The fans are attractive, quiet, and handle the air flow effectiviely. I would highly recommend the product.
