Pros & Cons
The Hampton Bay Atlura, indoor oil rubbed bronze ceiling fan, is an ideal option to circulate air in room up to 20 ft x 20 ft. The 5 hand-carved real wood blades with slightly contrasting medium walnut and walnut finish compliment many interior accents. The large spread 68” fan blades are designed for enhanced reach. The fan is matched with a substantially large motor for increased airflow and quite performance. The fan can easily be installed in standard mount with 3 speed reversible control. The kit includes a handy remote control covering a range up to 11 feet for easy fan settings and a 18 inches down rod. The Atlura is compatible with light kit as well which is sold separately.
Some buyers expressed concerns that the fan makes noise on high speeds. Reviews said that there was no air movement at 6 feet away from tip of the blades. Also this fan is on heavier side when assembled fully.
Overall, the Hampton Bay Atlura is recommended unit for its reasonable price and Energy Star certification which helps in cutting down the costs. The wooden feel and colors definitely gives the rustic style look to any interior.
