This was my second outdoor fan installation. The first one was about 2 weeks prior to installing the Minka-Aire fan. I replaced the outdoor fan I just installed because I couldn't get rid of the hum it made on high. For some reason after doing my home work several months earlier I chose the Minka-Aire but when the time came for me to purchase I god a different brand. Go figure. I had to replace it and when I say this brand and model I knew that was the one I was originally going to purchase. The installation was typical for a ceiling fan BUT Minka-Aire really goes the length to ensure it is good for a wet location I was very impressed. I had no issues with the install and the light kit as well as the 12" extension I got all went very well. The only noise I hear when the fan is on high is the wind it creates an very little fan wobble. I have the 4 speed wall switch that works good with the fan. This fan will move lots of air, it is sized right for my 8 X 13 pa screened in patio with 10 foot (slightly sloped) ceiling.
