Great, but the wiring harness melted.
Great product, save for the wiring harness. Beware its proximity to the halogen bulb. The bulb's heat will melt the wiring and cause a short, or worse.

I've had this installed in my kitchen for 3 or 4 years now, and it's worked wonderfully. My only complaint is that the wall mount controls aren't always sensitive enough. Otherwise, it's the fan that I will one day build the rest of my kitchen around.

Sleek design, loved the remote features, excellent service!
Thank you for a great purchasing experience, love the Acero ceiling fans I found on the YLighting website. The design fits perfectly in our 1926 Arts and Crafts Bungalow.

Great, inexpensive fan!
Works well in our Victorian kitchen. The paddles are a little cheaply made, but look great from a distance. Nice, intuitive controls - very happy overall!

Best looking comtemporary fan available for the price.
YLighting has been great! I looked at a lot of fans on the market and this one was by far the best value for the great quality.

Stylish fan, fast shipping!
We're very happy with our purchase. We love the look of the Acero. It goes great with all our fixtures. Plus, you can't beat this price. Other stores carry it, but at much higher cost. And the shipping was incredibly fast. Our electrician installed it, and he didn't have any complaints about installation, and in fact commented on the high quality of the fan. Overall, a fantastic shopping experience. We have also purchased the Como from the same manufacturer and are equally pleased with it.

A stylish addition to our retro kitchen
This is a great looking fan with a very nice build quality. Installation was simple and straightforward. The best and worst part about this fan is the wall switch controller. It gives you full light and fan control using existing wiring (we replaced a standard light switch), but the light dimming is a little less than intuitive.

Unique, compact, stylish design that puts off a lot of air.
The fan arrived well packed, and in perfect condition. The fan and wall control were both easy to install. The 3 uniquely shaped blades are very functional; the air is circulated in the room at every speed. The single light is a little harsh, but it can be dimmed from the wall control to create a better mood. I am very happy with my purchase and highly recommend this fan. I purchased another fan by the same company, and I am equally happy with that fan as well.

great looking but not too obtrusive, efficient
By:Jeannie S. , Homeowner (New York, New York)
Excellent product! Easy install!
I purchased this ceiling fan to tie together a modern dining table with a vintage house. It was so easy to install. I typically buy modern fan company ceiling fans and this was a great surprize. The quality and design of the Acerco Fan is top notch. I also love the remote wall switch, which is great for single pole applications.

Great looking fan
I am very happy with the way that this fan looks in my apartment. I liked both the fans made by Minka Aire and the Modern Fan Company, but I think that Minka Aire makes the best looking fans with lights. (The deal that I received from ylighting.com was very good, too.) The only issue for me is that I was looking for a light/fan combo where I could three-way wire the controls so I could control the both the light and fan from one point and just the light from another point. Instead, I had to buy an additional light/fan control and I control both functions from both points. Not a huge deal, but just something to note. In all, though, I am very happy with this purchase.

Pretty, retro fan/light
This is a lovely fan, and works well aesthetically with my eclectic mix of decor. The light is nicely strong without being too harsh, and the dimmer helps with that. I had expected the blades to be a bit shinier. All in all, it's a nice retro look without being at all kitschy!
By:Abby , Homeowner (Brooklyn, NY)
Great fan..like it so well I have had 7 installed in my new home. They are the best fans I have ever had.
By:Julie B. , Homeowner (Big Timber Montana)
LOVE THIS FAN!
The look of this fan is great and it works phenomenally well. I am so thrilled with it so far (it's only been a week so hopefully the quality holds up!) I was nervous about putting it in our bedroom, but it is a perfect addition in terms of aesthetics and function - also loved the service at YLighting!!

Sleek modern fan
Very durable and easy to use. Great switch options. Lokks amazing!
By:Renee M. , Homeowner (bayside, ca)
Very nice-looking light/fan! Really dresses up a room.
We love the fan! Love the cage design -- makes it more than just a fan. It was not easy to install, however...although more to do with owning an old house, it was a very time-consuming process. Would be great if this came with a remote instead of hard wiring the switch!
By:Penelope B. , Homeowner (Washington, DC)
Attactive and Easy to Use
We just recently purchased this product but so far we really like it. It looks very nice in our "casual contemporary" room, adds a lot of light, and the controls are very easy to use (I like that they are incorporated into a light switch on a wall as opposed to being another remote control to lose).
By:E.S. , Homeowner (NY, NY)
looks great, works great
this is the second time I've purchased this fan, and liked the old remote control better. It's great that the remote can be wall mounted, though. I love that this quietly retro design happily accompanies just about any other style of home furnishing you can think of.

My favorite fan
I've used this fan in several projects, looks great and works great. Never had a complaint.

Clean lines, versatile style, great finishes, quiet, easy controls, dimming light, easy to install.
By:Karen J. , Homeowner
Beautiful, cool, and fit for contemporary and mid-century designed home
Currently, the coolest ceiling fixture in our house. It has enough of "metal and wire" feel to fit into an industrial decor but it is not too rough for a contemporary home. Don't know if my husband loves more the fan or the controls. The light is strong enough and we do not need another source of lighting in the room but it is not too bright. It is super quiet which of course you expect but not always get. Our room is about 15' x 15' and there is enough of air circulation on the lowest setting when sitting right underneath the fan, or on the medium to move the air around this and the adjacent room. Installation was a breeze.

Acero Ceiling Fan
Y Lighting rocks! I bought my Acero Ceiling Fan from them.
By:Geezy , Homeowner (new york , new york )
extremely quiet fan!
Got this fan for the masterbedroom. It is extremely quiet! I keep it on 2 and it really fits the bill. The lines are retro and yet simple. It fits the bill!
By:Mikki S. , Homeowner (cherry hill nj)
The Acero fan is a perfect compliment to my mid-century modern, walnut bedroom furniture. Despite the atypical three blades, it moves the air as you would expect at all three settings. In one room I used the light kit and in another I did not. It looks beautiful both places. Currently the lighted fan in my bedroom is the sole light source and is plenty. YLighting was very helpful in locating the additional down rods I needed as well.
By:Karen P. , Homeowner (Fresno, CA)
As cool, if not cooler than a "similar" item offered at Restoration Hardware but significantly less expensive.
Great looking fan, exactly what I need for both my bedroom and home office. Excited for the Summer so I can start using it on a daily basis.
By:JCG , Homeowner (Venice, CA)
Beautiful and quiet
I love this fan. I searched for a simple fan and finally found this one. It brings a classic feel to the room. I love that you can use it with or without the light. It is very quiet. It clicks sometimes on the higher speed, but I think that if I tighten it up that will be remedied.
By:Tracina , Homeowner
Modern lines; efficient fan
This is the second home in whcih I've installed this fan. It has a nice industrial feel to it and it is a quiet efficient fan.
By:R.B. , Homeowner (Santa Monica)
Beautiful and very servicable ceiling fan
I just purchased a second Acero Ceiling Fan for my living room. The first one was installed in our master bedroom. It looks gorgeous with a ceiling medallion. I've never loved the looks of any ceiling fan before I discovered this one. The fan keeps the room nice and cool and operates quietly. No wobbling whatsoever. The light has a dimmer which is a nice feature. We live in an Arts and Crafts style rowhouse and the styling of this fan works really well in our home, which is almost 100 years old.

I recently ordered an Aero ceiling fan from YLighting and am thrilled with my purchase. I saved on shipping costs when compared to other sites as well as a discounted price. The product is beautiful and I couldn't be happier.
By:Lynn H. , Homeowner (Chicago)
Amazing product; great price
We purchased this fan for our home (master bedroom). We wanted something that didn't look like every other ceiling fan, and the Acero is beautiful without confining the room to a single style. It operates beautifully and moves an incredible amount of air without making a sound. I love that the lamp is on a dimmer, as well. If you want a fan that is sleek and spectacular with a hint of old school industrial flavor, this is it. (Note: The first Acero we purchased had a loose wire/connectivity issue, but YLighting replaced it and we have not had any issues with the replacement fan)

Love the look
The cage look is a nice touch to add a contemporary look without too much flash. I have used this fan a number of times.
