Hunter Fanaway 48" Ceiling Fan You've never seen a fan like this before. And with clear retractable blades, maybe you never will again. The award-winning FANAWAY® functions as both a pendant light and a ceiling fan. And in both capacities, it provides a designer's aesthetic to virtually any environment. Turning the fan on creates a centrifugal force that deploys the blades. Switched off, fan blades automatically retract and conceal, and the unit transforms into a slim, modern pendant light. To complete the picture, this revolutionary fan features recyclable materials, low-energy lighting and an energy-efficient design. Features: White Finish WhisperWind Motor Frosted White Glass (4) x Blades (Included) Omega Canopy Light Kit Included Limited Lifetime Warranty Remote Control Included Specifications: Requires (1) x 40W Compact Fluorescent Circline Bulb 12 Degree Blade Pitch 2 Position Mounting Speeds: 3 CFM: 4186 RPM (High): 225

Innovative design with four retractable blades (view larger).

It's hide and chic with Hunter Fanaway 48-inch ceiling fan (model 21427). With four clear retractable blades, the award-winning Fanaway functions as both a pendant light and a ceiling fan. In both capacities it provides a designer's aesthetic to virtually any environment.

Turning on the fan creates centrifugal force that deploys the blades. Switched off, the blades automatically retract and conceal, transforming the unit into a slim, modern pendant light. A remote is included for ease of use.

The light fixture uses one 40-watt compact fluorescent (CFL) bulb (included). It can be installed on a regular straight drop using the included 3-inch downrod or angled with an optional 36-inch downrod. Hunter's patented anti-vibration technology featuring the unique triangular hanger ball system reduces torque for wobble free performance.

Dust Armor Nanotechnology Blade Coating

One of the biggest complaints with ceiling fans is having to clean dusty fan blades and the unsightliness of having extremely dusty blades in an otherwise clean home. After years of research, Hunger has formulated a blade coating that helps to repel dust build up through a breakthrough nanotechnology.

Fan blades with Hunter's Dust Armor blade coating have a layer of nano particles that repel small moisture molecules. Dust particles gather to water molecules and when the density of the dust/water particles is low enough, light air currents blow the combined particle away from the surface.

What Size Fan Is Best for Your Room?

Small rooms up to 10 by 10 feet 30- to 48-inch fans
Large rooms up to 20 by 20 feet 50- to 54-inch fans
Great rooms over 20 by 20 feet 56-inch fans or larger

Specifications

Airflow 4,186 cubic feet per minute
Electricity use 49 watts (excludes lights)
Airflow efficiency 86 cubic feet per minute per watt
Dimensions, standard installation 11.34 inches to bottom of fan blade, 15.2 inches to bottom of light (with included 3-inch downrod)
Dimensions, angled installation 44.34 inches to bottom of fan blade, 48.2 inches to bottom of light (with 36-inch downrod, not included)

*For comparison, 36- to 48-inch ceiling fans have airflow efficiencies ranging from approximately 71 to 86 cubic feet per minute per watt at high speed.

This is an innovative fan, and I really do like the foldaway blades, which work quite well. The most amazing part is having a fan that just looks like an oversized light most of the time!

Now for the downsides:
- The bulb is a florescent light, which means there's no dimming it. I wish it were an LED light, so that you could dim it. Even a conventional light would be fine.
- The fan and light ONLY turn on using the remote, and not with the wall switch. The remote has a handy wall-mount so you can place it on top of or near the wall switch, but the fact that you need the remote to turn on the fan/light seems like a design flaw. I wish it were an either/or, with perhaps only the fan requiring the use of the remote. This is when you wish fans had firmware updates!

I have had this fan installed for quite a while now, so I feel it's about time to sound off on it.

My home is very comfortable-modern (think West Elm/CB2/IKEA), so the design of this fan was absolutely perfect for a relatively small master bedroom (12x14). Installation was reasonably straightforward, and the thing has a perfect balance of clean lines and home-nerd goodness when the blades retract. On the plus side, given the size and layout of the room the fan is actually nicely efficient at moving air around. It is by and large the quietest fan in my whole house, and the light is plenty bright enough. The actual aesthetics are phenomenal... it's why I dropped the extra coin on the thing in the first place, and why it will stay installed despite its detractions.

SO, what is my gripe on the functionality? Without a doubt the most aggravating aspect of this fan is its "remote only" operation. That is, you have to leave the wall switch in the 'ON' position at ALL TIMES, and use a supplied remote to operate either the light or the fan. If the light is on and you flip the wall switch off and right back on again, NO LIGHT - you have to use the remote again. On top of this, let's talk about me and my similarly-minded modern home brethren. If I am going to buy a fan with the sweet, but let's face it gimmicky, retracting blades to keep super clean lines in the house, the last thing I want is to mount some chunky-ass remote to my wall. If it were like an AppleTV remote, that'd be one thing. But instead, it's as thick as a Cable TV remote and about half the height, and has a wall mount which all told has the remote sticking about 3 inches off the wall. It was such a bad detraction from the room that I had to mount it behind the door...

The fan works as you imagine with its blades gracefully extending itself and then retracting when off. However the bulb temp is 4000k, which makes it wonderful for tropical plants but not good for human eyes. Highly recommend replacing the bulb with a 3000k temp.

I am currently trying to sort out a light flickering problem with Hunter. When the fan is off but the light is on, it flickers very noticeably. When I turn the fan on, the light stops flickering. So it may have something to do with the ballast or receiver. I will follow-up when I have a response from the manufacturer.

Overall, the fan is good quality and looks good. It's too bad Hunter didn't focus more on the design of the light. Also, there should be optional down-tubes or the ability for the fan to sit flush with the ceiling base.

The fan looks great, runs great and is a great conversation piece. The fan moves a lot of air and is very quiet at all speeds. The only problem with the fan is the remote. Remove the remote control receiver from inside the fan before you install. My wall switch has a control for the fan and a control for the light. The remote lasted about two days! The light is bright but not harsh and overpowering. I recommend the fan and love it but get rid of the remote. Mine is installed in a condo at the beach. The retracting blades are an attention grabber. Love the fan!

Installed this fan in my kitchen and you can hardly tell it's a fan when it's not turned on. Very nice styling and very quiet. Very good air flow.

I was concerned about the availability of the replacement fluorescent light tube, but Hunter assured me that they have them readily available.

Have received many compliments. We love it.

The fan is neat looking and nice to operate. However it does not move air! Imagine a column of air from the tips of the blades to the floor. Thats about it, not much outside this area! Mine is being used in a small kitchen and it does nothing. I did send the HUNTER Co. an Email asking them about this poor performance no response.

This was a risky choice since it is so odd but we are enjoying it. It a nice quiet fan and the light is nice and bright. The only negative is the light quality is kind of cool.

We got this fan when we remodelled our kitchen 9 months ago. I hate ceiling fans, I think they look awful, so when I saw this somewhere I was really pleased. It works great, guests always oooh and ahhh when we turn it on and the blades pull out. It is very quiet and stable.

Originally I was a little disappointed with the remote-only aspect, but they provide a wall mount for it, which we installed next to our light switch and really it works out just the same as a switch. A little better actually because the remote has a light button (light bulb picture on it) and then thee fan buttons so you can tell when you've turned it off (our standard ceiling fan always left me standing there waiting to see if I'd turned it off or just turned it down). The fan does only have two speeds, low and high, but that has been fine for us, especially because even high is really quiet.

A lot of the negative reviews on here are related to the fluorescent lighting... I think it's fine in the kitchen but we only use it occasionally as we have plenty of high-hats or whatever you call them. For people who are concerned about it you should buy the other model; this is the EV01 which uses fluorescent, the EVO2 looks exactly the same and uses 3 E27 bulbs (normal compact fluorescent I think, which you can buy in any shade of light). We're thinking about putting one in our bedroom and if we do we'll get the EV02 so the lighting will be a little softer.

Awesome fan, worth the money!
