Product Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of light! We put in a new fan that we had purchased elsewhere and were very unhappy with the amount of light it gave out. We took it down and returned it and purchased the MinkaAire. We've put this fan in our dining area in the kitchen where we like a lot of light. It really does the job. Looks great, too!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful but not for all situations This is a beautiful fan and the lighting is very dramatic. But I don't recommend this fan for sloped ceilings. Several problems occurred requiring multiple trips to the hardware store for additional parts and pieces as well as many, many trips up an down the ladder to and from my 12 foot sloped ceiling. The parts Minka provided, their instructions, and their technical support did not adequately address the special challenges sloped ceilings present. The initial installation is now complete but I still have a wobble not correctable by the blade balancing kit so more high altitude work is needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Completely satisfied I just ordered my 4th Airus fan, 2 for my Brother in Law and now my second for my home. I assume like most buyers, we are replacing the builders model. This fan is extremely quiet and no vibration. We can lay in bed and adjust the speed, direction and dim both the down and up-lighting. It is also attractive without taking away from anything else in the room as it blends somewhat with the ceiling. My one recomendation for an improvement is that the wall switch should be illuminated dimly at all times like a dorr bell, not just when you are touching the buttons. Overall, outstanding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't get enough of these fans I put two of a different model in my condo and I LOVED the uplighting. Just perfect for ambient lighting when you watch TV or want soft lighting. I moved to a different home and bought this model (recommended by the same electrical store as the first fans) and I just had it installed about 2 months ago. I knew it dimmed but it took me a couple of days to figure out that the dimmers also click to turn the lights on and off from the remote. When it was installed by the electrician from Angies List, he put the fan up without putting the light diffuser on top. He said I don't need it lol. That was his last trip to my house. I had another electrician fix that and the diffuser really softens the light. The fan is beautiful and I am shopping for 4 more now. I will also put a Minka outdoor fan in my new screened in porch being built next month. These are BEAUTIFUL!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful fan with surprises A few weeks after we installed this fan in our new kitchen, we found that by holding the on/off buttons on the wall switch (which are a bit small) we were able to dim the lower and upper lights individually. This was an unexpected delight. It was not an advertised feature, so I hope it doesn't burn out the lights too soon. We bought the brushed nickel fan which looks elegant and combines with the stainless appliances beautifully. It is quiet and cools as expected. I hope it lasts as long as our Casablanca (15+years & cooling elsewhere).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice looking fan; horrible to install While this is a very attractive fan, installation has been a nightmare. The responder is supposed to fit up in the ceiling light housing; it doesn't. I had to install the responder above the ceiling drywall. The instructions to install the switch are of little use; even an electrician I asked to come out and take a look at couldn't figure it out. And manufacturer customer support has very limited days and hours for calling; so far we have not been able to connect. I have installed many ceiling fans and this one has by far been the worst installation experience; I wonder if the manufacturer has actually tried to install their own product.
