The remote control can be used to turn fan on/off, control fan speed

and dim the lights!

Nice one could do with reaplacing the one in the bedroom as its a bit old fashioned looking
#9
Looks good, always fancied a fan in my bedroom. Can you reverse the rotation?
#10
yes you can reverse rotation - just finished installing mine in my bedroom
- very effective! no more hot nights tossing and turning!

they do a black and white one, slightly different design -
but didnt think this one was as nice

May help some people,no idea about these lights but hoping its bright enough for a living room
#12
this fan will take up to a 60w bulb
#13
Does the remote turn off the light as well ?
#14
yup remote turns light on and off and dims it,

as well as turning fan on and off and adjusting fan speed
#15
Nice one , just hope they have stock left at the weekend as it cant be delivered
#16
not sure if the land of make believe is near high wycombe? but they had loads on the shelves there!
#17
How easy is to fit one of these? Someone told me to attach it to one of the beams in the ceiling.
#18
yes - it has to be screwed into the ceiling joist, as its quite heavy - luckily my bedroom light was next to a joist
#19
Just reserved one for pickup tomorrow :) thankyou
#20
Also reserved one here too, thanks OP...

Are they just like fitting a normal light? Or do they need separate power for the fan?

Yes
No separate power supply is needed
I just fitted one last weekend
#22
just like a normal light - there is a wiring diagram in the instructions, although if in doubt get in a sparky!
#23
Anyone have any idea as to the noise of these? I seem to remember thats the main problem with cheap ceiling fans which make them annoying for bedrooms. It's OK if it's a continuous whirr of the motor, but a lot of them tend to have intermittant clonks, bangs and buzzes.

Have installed this in my conservatory. In my opinion it's very quiet. Can hear the motor a little as it ramps up to it's constant speed, however I haven't heard any intermittant clonks, knocks or bangs. Once at constant speed I can maybe just about hear the motor. Most of the noise comes from the simple movement of air. You might notice all this a little more if installed in the bedroom though.
Overall the product feels like it's very well made, especially for the price.
#25
whats the drop on this (how far down from ceiling)
#26
nice find, ive just reserved two for pick up, just hope my lights are fitted under a beam :whistling:
#27
I have this same fan in my bedroom... there are some pro's and con's here:

1) I have a normal sized 3 bedroom house, 'normal' height rooms. This fan hangs very low. I am 5 foot 10 and can stand under it and even go on tippy toes, but if you are a tall person then you might be in for some trouble. I don't have a measuring tape to check but it looks like once constructed, will hang about 22-24".

I have had mine fitted for over a month now - on normal summer days (warm, but not hot or clammy/sticky) the low setting works absolutely fine. Pretty much no noise and enough airflow to make you comfortable.

At first, the medium and high settings were brilliant - LOTS of air, very little noise, and no vibrations. After about a week though the fan makes creaking sort of noises ALL the time. It's only apparent on medium and high - not on low. The fan was fitted correctly and I know there's zero movement in the fitting bracket as I was able to hang from it - if it can take the weight of me hanging from the ceiling, it can take 6-8kg. I don't know if it's something inside the 'housing' that's vibrating or something but it's become extremely annoying to the point I usually just use 'low' (which ISNT good enough on the really hot summer days we've had a few of).

The remote is basic and flimsy - I've dropped it a couple of times accidentally on my wooden floor and the battery cover just falls right off and the batteries skoot off in whatever direction. No big deal - still works fine, but the remote is the ONLY way to operate this fan and there's nowhere to buy any spares from (as someone already indicated on the B&Q page)... so if you did break the remote then your screwed! So when the remote is that flimsy, not a nice thought....

It looks very good, it has a solid and good quality construction and finish... if it were not for the constant clicking on medum/high or for the cheap-as*ed remote, it would be an instant recommendation.

mooo

If it's not near a joist and it's a bedroom I just get a piece of wood, lob it across the 2 joists concerned couple of screws to fix it down then anchor the fan to that instead of a joist, take you maybe an hour to do all of that depending on how easy it is to get up in your loft
#29
[COLOR=Navy]Ceiling fans are great! I was travelling in Central America, I'd wash my clothes in the bath in my hotel and peg them to the fan, which I'd then switch on. Dried in no time![/COLOR]

i did the same in peru.
#31
woohoomoo

22-24"? That's like the length of my full arm. It would come down to my neck. Surely some mistake? :(
#32
These have a high failure rate, as a friend of mine found out.

Good if you get one that works out of the box.
#33
A G9 Bulb ?!?!! Thats the same bulb thats fitted into spotlight halogen lamps, which are good for night light areas of room, but are SPOT lights for a reason.

Unless this ceiling fan fixture has one hell of a mirrored dome to somehow reflect that light I somehow cannot see how a G9 lamp is going to have enough about it to fill a moderate sized bedroom or lounge.

I bought one of these 4 wks ago at a higher price than this, and we love it
It works a treat, it is very quiet running,
I had a to secure it to a piece of timber which inturn i secured to the joists,
the fan and the light are both remote control.
It lights our bedroom up more than enough and thats our master bedroom.
Overall very good and really helps you sleep on them hot nights.
We normally only have this running on medium or low or we find we end up waking up cold

:thumbsup:

True, we've had to take it back twice. Look nice, if abit big.

p.s - the bulbs were £6 but went through at £1 at the till.
#37
Thanks, reserved. Just checked Argos though and they do a £35 ceiling fan with 4 blades. More effective?
#38
Although the deal is hot, B&Q are not. They let me reserve it last night online and just now I've had a call saying they dont have stock, it's a discontinued item. Whats the point in letting me reserve something you dont have?!

The argos one is ugly, takes only a 40W bulb (insufficient for a main room light) and looks like it has a smaller diameter. It also isn't remote controlled.

Yeah, probably... I'm terrible at eyeballing :oops:

Looking again I think that is a bit much. I've measured with an improvised piece of A4 paper and it's about 1.3 times the height of an A4. So it's roughly about 15-16" drop. It's still pretty low and if you consider yourself a tall person this really isn't for you.
