I recently bought two of them for my great room with vaulted ceiling.
Brian Stark
These fans are uniquely attractive, much bigger than average fans, very quiet, and move a lot of air.
Derek White
It was really a waste of money because I will need to take this down and return it.

This appears to be a great fan. I recently bought two of them for my great room with vaulted ceiling. I wanted to install them side by side to help cool the living room but also to help move some air to an upstairs loft that overlooks the living room. The first fan was installed lower on the ceiling and I only needed an 11 foot ladder for that. The install went quickly and there were no issues. I hung the fan on a 48" drop rod. After using a straightened hanger to fish the wires through the drop rod, I learned that it is much easier to wrap the wires together and send them through the drop rod BEFORE installing the small safety bolt in the ball joint that will eventually hang from the ceiling mount. This bolt just gets in the way for trying to get the wires through there so have the wires coming out before installing that bolt.

The single biggest thing to know when buying this fan, especially if you are using an angled ceiling, is to check the serial number on the box. The 68" Altura fan has had at least two versions recently. Both are called the Altura and are 68". Both have the model number 904-384. The picture on the box is the same, the specs are the same and the features are identical. I bought both fans at the same store at the same time, from the same shelf. After installing the first fan, it was time to tackle the second one way up high at 18 feet. I rented a 14' A-frame ladder at Home Depot for $32, strapped it to my van roof, and got it home. A ladder this big is a monster and you really have to keep your balance and wits about you when up so high. Three different people at the rental counter told me, "don't fall of this" when I picked it up.

We bought this fan in March 2009 and installed it in a covered area on our patio to help keep cool in the 100 degree evenings that we have here.

The amount of air this fan moves even on low is really great and the fan never made a noise - no ticking, no motor noise, etc. It never wobbled, even though we had strong winds that would come in under the covered area.

Although it was rated for indoor use, the manual did say that the fan was weather resistant so we thought we would mount it in a covered area outside. The fan was mounted under a solid deck where we thought the weather could not get to it, but as of this week, the fan quit and when we took it apart to inspect the cause, water poured out of the housing. The finish may be weather resistant, but the housing definitely is not.

I would recommend this fan for someone with a large, high-ceilinged room. Just don't try to use it outdoors, even if it is completely covered.

This is a great fan when used properly. There is quite a wide gap in these reviews between people who understand that a 68" fan is specifically designed to move slowly yet produce a large volume of airflow and those who think the fan should whip around like an airplane propeller. Here's why that's exactly the opposite of what you want.

This fan has 3 speeds. At its lowest speed the fan produces an airflow of 3780 CFM. At its middle speed the airflow is 5453 CFM and at the high speed the airflow is 8752 CFM. That's a LOT of airflow! We will see how that compares to a typical low priced ceiling fan later in this review.

At its slowest speed this fan consumes 16 watts of power, at the medium speed the power consumptions rises to 36 watts and at the highest speed it consumes 95 watts.

Now, here is the part that you need to know, which is "airflow efficiency", in other words how much airflow are you getting per watt. The higher the number the less your electric bill will be. At the slow speed your airflow efficiency is 225, which is excellent. It drops to 148 at the medium speed and all the way down to 91 at the fastest speed. This fan is operating most efficiently at its slowest speed. And by running at its slowest speed you gain other benefits ... less vibration, lower noise, less draft, longer motor life and a more calm and relaxed living area.

Okay, is a 68" fan right for you? After all it is more expensive and it may overpower the look of your room. Assuming you have the space for it, how does it compare to those $50 ceiling fans you see at the local home improvement store?

I own 5 of these beautiful fans throughout my open concept home. 3 of them are the smaller 56" (1 bronze and 2 nickel) fans and the other 2 are the bronze 68" fans.

Two of the fans are installed in a newly built studio and are typically run on low to bring great air flow to the room. 3 were replacements which are installed in a high ceiling living, dining and foyer. These are typically run on medium and low and they bring a lot of air movement into a normally stuffy room. I can tell a big difference in the amount of air these fans move compare to the smaller yet faster moving fans and I'm impressed with the amount of air these fans move.

The only weird thing I've found is that the fan must be moving in order to be able to put into reverse. Normally you are required to stop the fan totally and then hit the reverse button and then on... with these fans, I've started the fans on low and when it starts to move I hit the reverse and it will change... otherwise, I've spent many minutes on trying to get it to work the other way with no avail.

If you aren't getting air flow... it's probably going the wrong direction... (which by the way, I notice a difference in the winter as well) try the reverse trick mentioned above and enjoy your new beauty of a fan eh!
