Twin Turbofan 42" sweep Ceiling Fan - Light and Wall Control Included
Fan looks great
It is definately diffrent. My electrician took a picture to show people so I'm sure it will be a conversation piece. The isolating fans really put out some air. However, there are a few negatives. 1) I didn't realize the parallel bars only rotate at one speed(slow) 3 rpm. So you get a blast of air every 15-20 seconds. 2) The wall mount control is VERY small. it's smaller than an ipod nano to give you an idea. Overall I really like the fan. I don't have it rotating unless I have company over it just stays stationary hitting the couch. On low you can not even hear it. On three it sounds like its going to take off. But puts out tons more air than a regular ceiling fan.

sounds like an airplane
We have a great room and thought that this would be a great fan to get the air circulating. Unfortunately in the summer we need to have the fan on the highest speed. At this speed the fan makes as much noise as an propeller airplane. We literally must increase the volume on the TV by 50% and forget about having a conversation from across the room. There are only 3 speeds available - there needs to be at least 4 or 5. Also, the fans turn but very slowly. So if you are sitting and the fan passes you get a few seconds of air but then have to wait 10-15 seconds for the next blast of air. I am sorry I bought this fan.

I have a 33 fooot long sunroom with 19 foot ceilings, I purchased three of them two years ago.Our room is always so comfortable and cozy.We have sun hitting the windows at the hottest part of the day. Before our purchare we were not able to enjoy the sunroom until the evening when the sun went down. We use this room constantly now.

Love the fan, so quiet.
We purchased this fan this past year and love it.
So quiet and we love that the fan rotates as well. You can have it just with the blades or have it rotate with the blades on as well. We also bought the remote and love that we can control it from anywhere.
It is a beautiful fan and everyone that comes into the great room love it.
I would highly recommend this fan

nice but noisy
This is a great looking fan, and we get a lot of compliments. However, it is TOO noisy. As mentioned in other posts, we can't put it on high b/c it drowns out everything. We have 14' ceilings, if it was higher maybe it would be less noisy. Luckily its not in a room with a TV, or else we would be replacing it. Also pricey for what u get

You'll love this fan
We put the nickel one in our Florida Room and it cools exceptionally well. We loved it so much we later bought the outdoor white one and put it on our front porch directly over our two chairs. Very nice fans and they are ALWAYS talked about by our guests. The remote control is very handy too.

MinkaAire Gyro Indoor Ceiling Fan
Can't say enough good things about this fan. It was easy to install, it looks great and it's a wonderful focal point. We have rather low ceilings so this worked perfectly because it doesn't need to have a lot of room to work. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a unique unit.

We placed this fan at the top of a stairwell and entrance into bonus room. It's great to keep air flowing throughout the area. When on high it is a little noisy but for this area, no problem. Very happy with purchase.

Love this fan
Have this fan in our bedroom. My husband was skeptical of my selection. Complained it would be too noisy. We have had it almost 3 years, and we LOVE it. The controller went out last week, and we haven't had power to the fan, and we can't sleep without the white noise.

We needed a ceiling fan and my wife does not to have air blowing directly onto her. After looking around, we decided the MinkaAire satisfied our needs for having a gentle breeze in the room without the irritation of wind blowing directly on you.
