3 Blade 44" Ceiling Fan - Light, Handheld Remote Control and Blades Included
Love this fan!
When we built our home 2 yrs ago, I was unfamiliar with MinkaAire fans. I wanted something sleek with an integral down light & remote control, reversible, easy to clean, quiet but able to produce enough air flow even at low speeds, in an oiled bronze finish. It also had to be available in both flush mount and tiltable down rod models. I searched online for quite a while and then came across this fan. It met every requirement. And the price was affordable!! I have three in my home and have never exeperienced a problem. I love them. So, when we remodeled a house for our daughter this year, I immediately ordered the same fan in a brushed nickel finish for that application. Smart choice! Looks great!

Love it! The fan has a great design with a sleek modern finish and it really circulates the air well.

The best feature about this fan is its looks. It is minimalistic with a clean, stylish, sleek, and modern design. It also has a relatively small footprint. The 100W mini bulb produces adequate light for my 12” by 12” size bedroom. Unlike other fans that require the blades to be screwed on the base unit containing the motor, this fan allows for the blades to just slide into the base unit and lock into place – a great feature that cuts assembly time. I was however slightly disappointed that the color of the blades (with a slightly grayish touch) was not identical to that of the base unit (brown/oiled rubbed bronze). This is not a defect but rather the actual color shade scheme of this particular fan. Even on its highest setting, the amount of airflow (air displaced) is not that impressive and hence I strongly recommend that one go with the 52” inch version of this fan that costs only slightly more than the cost of this 44” model. This fan comes with a 3.5" & 6" down-rod but for my 9” ceiling, I would have preferred if the fan also came with an additional 9” or 12” down-rod. The remote is stylish and works flawlessly but I wish there was more space to snug in the remote-receiver in the fan (it is quite a hassle to try to squeeze the remote-receiver in the tight space). The fan has a slight premium in its price to essentially reflect the quality, good looks, and the fact that you get a fan with an integrated lighting in one unit…….with the convenience of the fan and the light being independently controlled by a remote. Bottom-line: If you like the looks of this fan go with the slightly larger 52” version of it as it provides more airflow at only a minimal extra cost.

Low air flow
I bought two 44" Concept I fans and can't recommend them. The LOOK really nice, but don't move much air. My cheapo Hunter fans did a much better job at half the price. Sigh.

This is a great fan. The tiny halogen lightbulb works great. The remote control works great and is also better than installing a dimmer switch etc. We have one brown and one white fan. both great.
Delivery was fast and both fans worked out of the box and had all the parts.

This is the quietest fan I've ever had. It fits perfectly into my kitchen--small and compact, moves a lot of air & it's easy to keep clean. Best of all, it looks great!

Liked the first so much, bought another.
This light/fan combo was installed in the MBR of our new home. We really liked the look, the ease of using the remote and how quiet it was. So, we bought a second unit for the Guest Room. It's easy to set up the fans on independent remotes so there is no interference. GREAT support when we called for help with the installation.

Great ceiling fan/light combo
I recently installed this ceiling fan in a 4-season patio room. It complements the design of the room. I chose this fan based on its design and because the light was dimmable. The remote control is a nice feature too.

Very Modern and Smooth
I like the fact that no screws or other holders are seen on the blades. The one light bulb gives plenty of light. The remote works well.
