MinkaAire Contractor 42 Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Quality Fan Lighting Direct was a great place to purchase these fans. I bought 2 for 2 guest bedrooms and they work great. I only wish that I had bought this model with a light. It is a quality product - effective, quiet as a whisper.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Air Movement This is a smaller fan which was put in as a replacement. It was easy to replace. It moves the air very well for the size. I would purchase another one when it is time to replace another fan in the house. Was balanced out of the box so had no issues as mentioned by others. Great value, at this cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good as Hunter....so far This is an excellent 5 blade smaller diameter fan, which is difficult to find. Most 5 blade fans are the larger diameter. It was easy to install, is quiet, and did not require any balancing. This was a replacement fan for one that was purchsed in 1997 installed in a smaller bedroom. The original fan had a light kit, and this fan is adaptable to a light kit. However, my light kit has screws to hold it to the fan and this fan does not have anywhere to attach this light kit to. My origina fan was a Century. Basically the light kit and this fan are not physically compatible so the light kit is being held to the fan with twine. So far it works, until i find something better to secure the light kit to the fan. I suggest inquiring about how light kits are attached to the fan so you can avoid this issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality Product/Excellent Customer Service This online purchasing experience was hands-down the best ever. I received personalized product assistance, price-matching, my own purchasing link for the fan and matching extender. It was quick and thorough...much better than the other two websites I was looking at. The product is of exceptional quality and fits in beautifully in our new office conference room.
