How to Install a Casablanca Wailea Fan

Add Comfort to Your Outdoor Spaces with Casablanca Wailea Fans


Finding a smart, stylish ceiling fan for a small space such as a laundry room or walk-in closet can be a trying task, but certainly not impossible. The Casablanca Wailea ceiling fan is designed for small, damp indoor and outdoor spaces, and like all ceiling fans created by the Casablanca Fan Company, they're pretty fashionable to boot. We at Del Mar Fans & Lighting put together a Casablanca Wailea ceiling fan how-to installation video to help and inspire you.


Discover the Casablanca Wailea Fan

Inspired by the Casablanca Fan Company’s Capistrano and Lanai ceiling fans, the Casablanca Wailea is UL-rated ceiling fan intended for damp or humid outdoor spaces like covered patios and porches. However, the Casablanca Wailea fan is also useful for indoor spaces like bathrooms, laundry rooms, kitchens, and even walk-in closets, where it reduces the amount of indoor humidity and prevents mold formation. These ceiling fans are ideal for indoor and outdoor spaces ranging from 75 square feet to 120 square feet in size. The simple, traditional body easily matches most interior and exterior decors. This compact ceiling fan is available in a brushed cocoa with matching blades and a brushed nickel with all-weather matte black blades.
