Pros & Cons
Hunter 21425 Fanaway 48-Inch ceiling fan is a sleek looking dual purpose fan. It features recyclable materials and an energy efficient design. The blades swing out automatically when fan is turned on with the aid of the centrifugal force and the blades automatically retract and conceal when switched off. It includes a handy remote for ease of use and low energy lighting when required.
This innovative Hunter Fanaway is equipped with 4 clear retractable blades and functions both as a pendant light and a ceiling fan. It uses one included 40-watt CFL bulb with the Airflow that is 4,186 cfm with a 2-position mounting system i.e. downrod and angled. Users find the retractable blades and the ability of the unit to transform into a slim, modern pendant light very appealing. Some reviewers have pointed out that they would have preferred to replace the CFL bulb with a new and innovative dimmable LED light option. Users have also liked that the Hunter fan remote comes with independent controls for 3 fan speeds and light so you do not need special fan wiring just a regular light switch wiring to operate it.
All-in-all the Hunter Fanaway 48-Inch ceiling fan is a popular fan because of its appearance and functionality. It can also serve as a great conversation piece. This fan is extremely quiet and the light fixture works comparatively better in smaller spaces. The Hunter 21425 Fanaway 48-Inch ceiling fan looks great and circulates air nicely all the while making very little noise.
