Pros & Cons
The Minka-Aire F518 44-inch Concept II Flush Mount Ceiling Fan is ideal for low ceilings with a total hanging depth of 10.5-inches, with or without the light. The fan is housed in a sleek metal body and a quiet motor provides a steady flow of air that keeps you comfortable even in larger rooms. With a blade sweep of 44-inches, three concave blades are pitched at 14-degrees for efficient air movement. Excluding the lights, the fan has an airflow CFM of 4600 using 40 watts of electricity. With the reverse switch, in the winter you can move heat from your ceiling and circulate throughout your living area. In the summer you will save energy by the re-circulation of air from the outside into your room.
A hand held fully functional AireControl remote system is included featuring 3-speed fan control in forward and reverse making it easy to adjust power, speed and illumination. In addition, the remote features on/off switching plus a full range light dimmer with independent up/down light control and is operable at distances of 40-feet. The remote includes one 12V battery and can be mounted as a wall holder.
However, some reviewers complained that using the remote was quite confusing especially if it was used as the main operating source to control the fan and lights.
Overall, the Minka-Aire F518 is recommended for the quality of each and every fixture. From classic to contemporary styling, all fans are engineered for superior performance, maximum comfort and something for every décor and budget.
