An overview of Ceiling Fans
Alt.home.repair folks like both Hunter and Casablanca. THAT well known consumer
product rating magazine hasn't rated ceiling fans for a long time, but when they
did the Hunter Sojourn 25874, $190, and Casablanca Panama 12222T, $370 come in
on top. Home Depot's house brand, the Hampton Bay St Claire 413-769, $100,
was rated nearly as good as the top 2 and was a Best Buy. We've had 2 Casablanca fans that
have been going for 30+ years. One had a built-in speed control failure early on -- I replaced it
with a wall controller (easier to replace). Both have been quiet and vibration free, running
continuously for 8 months of every year. I like 'um.
It was the Harbor Breeze Vandelle EF51 71PB and Hunter Coastal Breeze 23506, at $60. But,
again, the Hampton Bay Bridgeton 357-633, $45 and, its brandmate, a flush-mount, the Littleton
270-614, $30 did almost the same as the top 2. The Hampton Bay models were both named Best
