Hunter Ceiling Fans Still Strong after 100 Years
Founded in 1886 in upstate New York by father and son team, John Hunter and James C. Hunter, the Hunter Fan Company produced the first water-driven ceiling fans, which featured two blades that customers could upgrade to a four-blade model. Hunter ceiling fans quickly built a reputation for using the highest quality materials available to produce the best products possible. The Hunter Original ceiling fans, also known as the “Classic Original” fans, have been in production since 1906, making them the longest running fan units still in production. The manufacturer went on to produce electric fans, oscillating desktop fans, and pedestal fans to meet consumers’ emerging needs.
Currently, Hunter continues to be an innovator in the ceiling fan industry. In the last decade, the company has introduced a number of technical advances including the Hunter 5 Minute Fan, a collection of pre-assembled fans ready in approximately five minutes as well as fans with retractable blades, and fans with balance detection and auto-correction. Hunter has developed Dust Armor, a blade coating available on most of their fans that prevents dust from accumulating on the fan blades as seen in the video below.
Hunter Fans Perform Well Indoors and Outdoors
Hunter ceiling fans are available in a number of sizes, styles and finishes that are suitable for indoor and outdoor use in a home, office, or business. A Hunter 52 ceiling fan has blade span appropriate for a home or business office with 150 - 300 square footage. While Hunter bathroom fans are ideal for circulating damp air in a bathroom or restroom in order to prevent condensation and mold.
