MinkaAire Calais Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Hugger Fan I ordered this fan on Monday and received it by UPS on Wednesday. My husband spent about a hour today installing our new fan. I can't tell you how pleased I am with it. I have an older home with eight foot ceilings so I spent a lot of time looking and researching hugger fans. This MinkaAir Calais fan is exactly what I expected and needed in my bedroom. It is a beautiful, well made, expensive looking fan. The remote controls both the fan speed and the light which can dimmed. I would suggest you go to the MikaAir website and look at the colors of this fan so you will be sure to get the one you want. The pictures there are much bigger and vivid. Again, this is a quality fan and just perfect for a lower ceiling room. Go for it. You will be so pleased you did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatest Ceiling Fan/Light for flush mount This is the 3rd and 4th of this type fan I have purchased, and naturally I love them since I keep buying them. They installed quickly from the spot that the old ones were in. The glass is sheer, which lets out great light, even tho there are only 2 60-watt bulbs. The best parts are the elegant look and the super quiet motor, along with the remote control which is already included. If you are putting two of them in the same room, be sure to install the first one, turn the power on, re-set the code in the remote and do the reprogramming/turning on light BEFORE you install the second one. The second fan can then be installed without having to change the factory set code in it's remote.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Ceiling hugger fan. I have lower ceilings in my new condo and a tall antique bed and needed a fan that was near the ceiling. This fan fit the bill and was rich looking. (Hangs down less than 12 inches.) The glass shade is a bit darker than I expected but dims quite nicely. The remote control is a very convenient feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fan, as advertised Quite pleased with fan ordered which was received very promptly. One of many fans installed in a new home with 9 foot ceilings. Very rich looking, yet a great price. Wonderful detail in "carved" base with accent gold coloring. Using in a master bedroom where its quietness is very much appreciated as it runs all night during our warm summers. Have always been pleased with products ordered from Lighting Direct, wonderful company to do business with. Although room lighting switches were pre-wired with dimmers, we elected to use the included remote for our convenience while sitting or laying in different areas of the bedroom. Very satisfied customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never been happier with a fan I liked the look of the fan and the fact it has remote control. I bought 1 for our den and liked it so much we got two more for our bedroom, different colors. We've had these fans a couple years now, we've just remodeled our den and made room for another in there. That's gonna make 4, couldn't be happier with a fan. Their quiet and very attractive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite! Used this one in my office. It's awesome! Nice orange finish and the crown is fantastic. Totally quiet! Comes with a remote but I got the wall switch. Works perfect with a two wire set up. Especially useful if you need a flush mountable fan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fan, love the remote control I got the fan from LightingDirect in just 4 days. Pleased with the speed of shipping. The fan is well made, quiet, and was a 'breeze' to install. I didn't think that I necessarily wanted or needed the remote that came with it, but now I don't know how I ever got by without one. The remote seems to be a little cheap, but other than that it will do just fine. The fan looks rich, love the style. I did a lot of on-line shopping before I decided on this fan, and I think this is the best well built unit for the price! We plan on getting another one the fall for another room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice fan Nice quality fan. This is the first fan that I have installed, the instructions were straight forward and easy to follow. Took me about an hour to put it up and it works great ! The remote is really handy and works very well. It is perfect for our bedroom. I would definitely recommend this fan.
