In the age of disposability, few products have earned the right to be called classics. Rest assured, the Classic Original is one of them.

Product Technologies:

  • Original Motor - All Original fans come equipped with a cast iron motor which effectively draws heat away from electrical components, resulting in increased performance at a lower cost. Original motors are larger and more powerful than most ceiling fan motors, allowing the blades to be pitched at a higher degree, which delivers greater air movement with less noise.
  • Energy Star - Energy Star is an international standard for energy efficient consumer products originated in the United States of America. Ceiling Fans carrying the Energy Star service mark generally use 20%-30% less energy than required by federal standards

Hunter 23855 Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Value for Any Ceiling Fan I was looking for a new Ceiling fan for Family room and wanted one with lots of power and a good warranty. I found it all with a Hunter Original 52 inch fan from It is cast iron, moves a lot of air and has allowed us to reduce the A/C thermostat approx 1 degree and still feel as cool, resulting in an estimated electricity savings of about $20 per month. The cost to run it is about 20 cents/day, so this fan should pay for itself in 2 years or less depending on usage. We have high ceilings so we run it 24/7. This new fan is just as rugged as the old Hunters and now a lot easier to install with the new hardware included in box. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Fan Ever In the past 7 years we have had 3 different homes and in all 3 we have installed this fan in multiple rooms. It is a great looking fan which goes with both traditional and contemporary styles. It is very solid (cast iron) and runs like a well oiled machine! Stop looking for a fan and get this one, you willl not be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great classic fan The Hunter original is the classic ceiling fan. No fan is made better or looks better. It was easy to order on this site and was delivered quickly. It was installed by an electrician and is now running smoothly and quietly the way they always do.

  • What controls can I use with this fan?

    A. The Hunter 23855 ceiling fan can use the Hunter 27187 remote control and the Hunter 27189 wall control.

  • how tight can I hang from ceiling?

    A. The Hunter 23855 comes with multiple rods. Each one is 3 inches in length.

  • Can this be installed with only 4 blades? If so how does that impact air flow and efficiency? Thank you

  • Can you tell me the CFM for this fan? Does it reverse for summer/winter application?

  • Is there a compatible 5 foot downrod?
