  1. When I was a kid my mother and all my aunts had ceiling fans. They were these hideous brass plated colonial things from K Mart and I hated them! No ceiling fans for me. Now, 40 years later I buy myself a small condo to retire in and it has those hideous ceiling fans in the bedrooms. It was winter and it was warm in the room when I went to bed so I switched on the hideous fan to cool the room down. It was wonderful! Kept the room nice and cool and circulated the air. I ran out and got these beautiful new modern style fans with lights and remote controls and love them. I turned the second bedroom into my wash room. I put in a washer but no dryer. I got a little metal drying rack from Ikea and I’ll do my laundry, hang it on the rack, turn on the fan and go to bed. I get up in the morning and presto, the cloths are dry and I didn’t have to pay for a dryer or for running one. The place is air conditioned and I really don’t need them in the other rooms but I do love the one’s that are in the bedroom and washroom.

  2. We put 2 Minka Aire fans in our 12’x24′ screened porch with a “shed” roof. They have been wonderful and I love the remote.
