    I use this fan in my office. It is in a part of the house where our central air isn't the greatest. In the summer it does a great job moving the air around and in the winter it keeps my office warm by my reversing the blade direction and keeping the warm air from rising.
    I use it over my desk and I'd have liked the lighting to be a little better, but that really doesn't take away from a great fan.

    This has to be the easiest fan I have ever installed, and I did it by myself. Nearly everything about the fan is very well thought out and stylish. The operation is quiet and the fan is solid even at its maximum speed. However, the 100 halogen bulb, which sounds impressive, is a HUGE HUGE HUGE dissappointment. My old light fixture was simply two 52 watt florescent bulbs and a screw on ancient frosted shade but it did a vastly better job of lighting the room. Unfortunately, the last thing you install during the process is the lamp and by that point taking the entire fan down and packing everything up to be returned seemed like too much effort. I assumed that since my old fixture was basically a 100 watt bulb, this new halogen 100 watt would be at least be as bright but its seems more like a 40 watt bulb. Given the price I expected more and would not recommend this fan to anybody who will depend on it for light. If however you only want to use the fan i think its great.

      Comments about Minka-Aire F519-BN, Concept II Brushed Nickel Flush Mount 52" Ceiling Fan with Light & Remote:

      The fan was easy to install. It has a great modern look to it and since it is a hugger, it's low profile keeps it close to the ceiling and out of the way of lifted arms and tall objects. We put it in our Sunroom and it looks marvelous. It works well and is quiet on low and medium speeds. On high speed it does sound a little noisy,like an airplane propeller. But you don't need the high speed, the other speeds push the air enough for any comfort level. Read instructions carefully. You can only reverse the rotation of the fan when it is rotating. It took me some time to figure that out. You would think that the fan should be stopped, but it won't work unless it is running. Overall, I'm very happy with it.

            I initially bought this fan refurbished, but it made a grinding sound as it rotated. Del Mar immediately sent a brand new replacement fan and didn't ask me to return the faulty one. My contractor switched out the two and said he had never had such an easy installation. I've never had a fan that was easier to clean. The fan offers excellent air movement in total silence. The halogen light provides good illumination and is pretty attractive as fan light kits go. The fan has a kind of funky retro look that fits well with my eclectic decor. Living in Florida, I've had a lifetime of experiences with fans. I have to say, this model is the best I've ever owned. I loved it so much, I bought another Minka-Aire product from Del Mar, the sculpture-like Light Wave. So beautiful and incredibly efficient!

                    Really like this fan so far. It blends into the ceiling so really looks great with the white shabby chic look in the bedroom. Easy to install, works great, and provides plenty of light, which I was a little worried about. Would highly reccommend.
