Design by Ron Rezek.
At merely twelve inches in length, the Altus Hugger is a beautifully sculpted design intended for low-ceiling applications. Positioning the blades at the bottom of the fan, furthest from the ceiling, allows for maximum airflow from a hugger fan. Available with either a brushed aluminum or gloss white finish and with a blade span of 36", 42" or 52".
Optional light kit is available in both halogen (large or small glass) or fluorescent versions. Note: Any control ordered with a fan that has been configured with an energy-saving CFL will be supplied in a non-dimming version.
Notes: Express shipping is available on this item. In most cases, orders received before 12:00 PM Pacific time will ship the same day.

Ron Rezek designed the world's first contemporary-styled ceiling fan, the Stratos, in 1986. But his list of accomplishments in the design world is long and varied, from lifeguard equipment to contemporary lighting. In 1997, Ron started The Modern Fan Co. in Ashland, Oregon, which produces and sells only contemporary ceiling fans.
His ceiling fans have been widely used in hotels, restaurants, retail and institutional applications, and all types of residential projects.
Ron Rezek's Philosophy:
Modern Fan Company
Modern Fan Company. Consciously cool.
Modern Fan represents a new age in ceiling fans — the marrying of efficient function with contemporary design. Designed by Ron Rezek, the Modern Fan Company's models celebrate the modern idiom through mechanical simplification, geometric forms and contemporary finishes. The unique ceiling fan styles of Modern Fan represent a new age in ceiling fans — the marrying of efficient function with contemporary design (you won't find any wicker or flowery fans here!).
Beautifully designed and carefully manufactured fan!
Yes, the design of the Altus is quite sleek. But even more than that, the fan appears to have been lovingly manufactured and then packaged for shipping: everything aligned and finished properly, no missing screws (in fact one extra of each), etc. Although the box included some weights to adjust for wobble, I didn't need them. And the fan runs so quietly!
By: Warren, Homeowner (Washington)
Sleek, minimal, efficient!
Easy installation, sleek design, went into a modern Echler style home. The fan really operates well, quiet, and fast! Owner loves the minimal design.

Modern Fan fans are very efficient and quality products
Enjoy the fan and its look
By: Richard, Homeowner (Atlanta)
Great modern fan - well designed and built
We wanted a modern looking fan for our bedroom (aluminum) and the kid's room (white). They both circulate the air well and add a nice look to the rooms. FYI, the #4 & #5 wall controls can be used as dimmers, which is a nice touch. Overall - great product!
By: R.J., Homeowner (Berkeley, CA)
A great choice for a modern bedroom.
The fan is sleek with contemporary lines and an unobtrusive feel. Does its job well and quietly.
By: Barbara B., Homeowner (Phila)
Amazing quiet modern fan!
Amazing quiet modern fan. We love everything about this fan the speeds the look the quiet is absolutely wonderful. We will be purchasing more for our home. This is a great value for the quality of the product. It was also very easy to assemble and hang.
By: Chad H., Homeowner (Naples, Fl)
Purchased 3 fans for our home and we love them. They are quiet, modern and the speed control is perfect. We will be buying more for our home. They were very easy to install and they shipped quick even over the holidays.
By: Chad H., Homeowner (Naples, FLorida, USA)
Beautiful Minimalist Design
I have bought two of these fans and will probably buy one for every room. These are sleek and look great.
By: Peggyct, Homeowner (Bluffton SC)
Great fan for the $$!
I have purchased several modern fans and this one is the same great quality as the others. I would definitely recommend modern fan company for any ceiling fan purchase.
By: Lisa S., (Omaha, NE)
Love it... gonna get another!
Just installed the Altus Hugger in our bedroom; simple installation, sturdy, quiet, elegant.
By: David R., Designer (Oakton VA)
Great product-- quiet, moves air well, visually clean lines even with the light attachment.
We use this in the bedroom and it is very quiet and effective in moving the air around. The lines are simple and the light is well integrated and bright. Well engineered and easy to install.
By: Deb, Architect (Massachusetts)
We bought this fan because of its slim profile. At high power it has enormous air flow push.
By: J.S., Homeowner (New York)
Just installed our Altus ceiling fan and in one word..it is amazing!
After looking for months for the perfect ceiling fan for our bedroom, I chose the 42" Altus Hugger. My husband and I have a mid-century home and opted to install it ourselves taking into consideration previous reviews on this website. It was fairly easy to install and we were amazed at the quality, and how quiet the fan is during operation. Even the light kit we ordered with the fan has the perfect illumination for our bedroom and we can't say enough about the hand-held remote for convenience! YLighting surpassed all of our expectations!
By: Erika, Homeowner (Berea,OH,USA)
Beautiful Minimalist Design
I bought this fan because it is sleek and minimalist. I wanted a fan that was functional but didn't scream "ceiling fan" and this fit my needs perfectly. I love that the summer/winter switch is easy to get to and operate. I will be buying more of these.
By: Peggy C., Homeowner (Bluffton SC)
Sleek & Quiet
Used the 44" version over a bed with a 10' ceiling. Hugs the ceiling well and looks great in a contemporary setting. Use it all night long on low speed and I can push the thermostat up a couple of degrees and remain comfortable. Even the first night did not hear the fan at all. Great product and YLighting delivered very quickly. Remote makes using in bed very convenient.
By: Shadow, Homeowner (Sedona AZ)
I am a licensed lighting designer in NYC and SF and have been using modern fan company for over 12 years with no problems. They have great designs, excellent quality, fast delivery and a easy to read spec sheets with all the options to choice from, I highly recommend them for all your design projects.
By: Johno W., Designer (NYC)
I love my Altus Hugger ceiling fan!!!!
I can't believe I waited so long to get this product. I live in a L-shaped studio with little cross air ventilation. I was using my air conditioner to ventilate the apt but now the fan works great. I love that I am using less electricity .
The free shipping service was timely and the air conditioner was packed well.
I highly recommend using Ylighting.
By: Cheryl H., (Brooklyn, NY)
Looks and works great!
I purchased two units for by sons' bedrooms. You should probably have an electrician install them. I had to call ylighting to have the remote control unit replaced on one of them, but they replaced it no questions asked. If you are unsure of ordering lighting over the web, don't worry, their ylighting customer support is knowledgeable, very helpful, and responsive. Also make sure you installer puts it in correctly so that it doesn't wobble. The product looks great, we put them in a loft bedroom that is about 10 feet by 10 feet and has an 8 foot ceiling and it's a perfect fit.
By: A.K., Homeowner (Washington, DC)
This fan is ideal for smaller kitchen and provides adequate cooling and circulation.
We purchased this at the request of a family member. We are thrilled with it. It is perfect for the smaller kitchen and provides so much cooling! We love it!
By: Rachael, Homeowner (MA)
Sleek and modern flush mount fan.
This fan is great for for contemporary/modern spaces where you do not have high ceilings. I was looking for something that was modern and was flush mount, and this fan works perfectly.
By: Mitchell C., Homeowner (Dallas TX)
Simple lines, great value.
Love the clean lines and smaller diameter options. Three blades feel "lighter" than most other fans with four. Will continue to spec. Modern Fan Co. products, as they are most often the best solution for a contemporary fan look for a reasonable cost.
By: Kev W., Architect (Virginia)
Amazing fan for comtemporary space
We recently remodeled our master bed / bath. My husband insisted on a ceiling fan. I couldn't stomach having a fan in our gorgeous contemporary clean lined space. Thankfully I found Modern Fan Co. We used a white fan - it is beautiful and unobtrusive in the room. Moves a lot of air! Both my husband and I are happy. Will definitley come right back to the company and this website for any future fan purchases.
By: M.A., Designer (Fort Lauderdale)
A good option for smaller-scale applications
We specified several of these for a small residential project- the shorter length of the blades and ceiling-hugging design made this fan the best option- the aesthetic is clean and fits with a variety of architectural/interior styles and the fan functions well.
By: Jason Y., Architect (Aliso Viejo)
Just purchased house, will be replacing 30yr old bedroom fans with these- definite upgrade!
By: Ad C., Homeowner (New York, NY, USA)
Beautiful Unusual Design
When calling YLighting I wasn't sure what I exactly wanted. The gentleman that helped me was great. He answered any questions I had and offered suggestions. Shipping was free and prompt. I called to order one fan and ordered a second. Not disappointed, great company to work with. The Altus Hugger Ceiling Fan is so unusual, I had shopped forever and couldn't find something unusual without having to spend a small fortune. This fan is just what I wanted.
By: Gabbs, Homeowner (Jackson, MI)
I have 8 foot ceilings and live in a cape so I was a bit hesitant about whether the fan would truly fit with the room and the decor. It works perfectly and adds just that bit of flash that I was looking for. It blends in quickly yet adds the perfect amount of air circulation for our small kitchen. I went with the 52 inch blades and it works very well. YLighting provided the needed level of customer service and delivered the product quickly.
By: L.S., Homeowner (Stamford CT)
Modern and Distinct, Perfect for any room.
The Altus Hugger is a work of art. Very modern and contemporary. A very clean design. It will enhance the look of any room. Cost effective and very efficient.
By: Urbaniza D., Architect (Miami, Fl)
Easy to install, for a ceiling fan and appears exactly as picture and described on the internet.
By: David W B, Homeowner (New York City)

I love the modern styling of this fan. I used this fan in my own home and would highly recommend it to my Client's.
By: Felicia, Designer (Birmingham Michigan)
Great looking fan
I love the styling of this fan and installed it in my own home. Great form and function. Would recommend this to my Client's as well.
By: Felicia, Designer (Birmingham Michigan)
The fan is beautifully made and very good looking product. I did not install this fan but I was there when my electrician did the installation. He had no problem installing it and kept commenting on how well it was made and how easy it went up. A very nice fan that works well and looks even more expensive than it is.
By: George, Homeowner (Beverly Shores, IN)
Great fan!!!!.....Lousy installation.
The fan has an attractive design. Is comparatively light weight and works wonderfully. Given that it is whisper quiet, my wife and I intend to replace the one in the bedroom. One caveat, and the reason for not giving it 5 stars; the screw holes that mount the fan to the ceiling mount are very, very tight relative to the screw so they must be screwed in dead straight and with quite a bit of force. However, the screw holes are so close to the celing it is impossible to accomplish this task. I would recomended screwing a screw into each hole PRIOR to putting the mount on the ceiling. This will make it much easier when it must be done to mount the fan. You could also use an angled screw driver but I did not find this to be very efficient. Other than that, installation is a snap.
By: R. M., Homeowner (Englewood, NJ)
Excellent product, upon receipt I purchased a second fan.
Nice contemporary design that harkens to the past (Futuristic) as well as fitting in the present. Fits well in my Mid-Century Modern 1950s home. Fast service , easy installation, quiet.
By: John B., Homeowner (Ann Arbor, MI)
Super impressed, excellent quality
A very clean, well styled fan, excellent quality. Installation was simple enough- clear instructions. Item shipped promptly. If I need another fan in the future it will be from YLighting and it will be made by The Modern Fan Co.
By: Geoffrey S., Homeowner (Vancouver)
One of the best ceiling fans I have ever seen.
Great fan. Almost ALL fans are so unbelievably UGLY. And almost all fans are so low for Mcmansions, I guess. This fan is close to the ceiling and is actually simple and clean in design. We love it!
By: Rebecca P., Homeowner (Ann Arbor)
Hugger Fan for 8'-0 ceilings.
Great fans! Very easy to assemble and install. Quiet rotation and excellent air movement. Only difficulty was attaching body of fan to as screws are too tight to the ceiling. This the 10th time we have recommended these fans and all clients are very pleased!
By: Lynn W., Designer (Elora, ON, Canada)
came in great and performs great
This fan looks great and does everyting that we wanted . We are very satisfied.
By: Stephen L., (Nashville, TN)
super cool fan!
I really like the fan, it looks and works great! My only problem is that I didn't realize that you need a special wall switch, which I didn't order at the time. Now that I need to order it, the shipping in not free and it is very expensive.
By: Kayla C., Homeowner (providence, ri)
Elegant, works well, but hard to install
We installed the Altus Hugger Ceiling Fan in 3 rooms and it looks more like a beautifully sculpted object, than a fan. It is very quiet and efficient as a fan. The lighting soft and quite sufficient for a medium-size room. The only problem was the installation. My husband is a real handy man, but this one made him sweat and loose his temper. It didn't get any better after the installation of the first one. I am still considering buying one more of these for the living room.
By: Maya, Homeowner (Brooklyn, NY)
Solid/Greeat Looking Fan
Fan arrived without hassle within just a few days. Contrary to some other reviews, I found this fan very basic to setup and install. The fan itself is killer looking and definitely solidly built. It operates very well... and quietly. Basic fan control switch is good too, though for whatever reason level 1 is fastest speed up to level 4 which is slowest... just seems backward.
By: David P., Homeowner (Lafayette)
Beautiful, modern, simple
This fan is simple, attractive, and functional. While described as "modern" in design, it actually blends in well with our southern home that has exposed stained wood and stucco. We chose it over "traditional" fans because they were large and conspicuous. This fan is almost invisible, and we love it.
By: KKR, Homeowner (Atlanta, GA)
Very nice minimalist appearance
Will most likely purchase more fans to replace existing ones since the sleek appearance of this fan adds modern touch to room.
By: Mariam C., Homeowner (Davis, CA, USA)
Great fan; stylish
It was a bit challenging to install, but worth it. Great customer service! We are considering purchasing another.
By: Binford, Homeowner (NC)
Moves the Air: Looks Great
Excellent fan with stylish look. Quiet! Installation was somewhat challenging, but worth the effort. We are considering purchasing another
By: Binford, Renter (NC)
This fan totally creates a great look and feeling in the room
I love the fan-- and the shopping experience was great. You have a huge selection, great prices and it arrive quickly. Will definitely shop her from now on
By: Maggie R., Homeowner
Looks great, nice quality
it is hard to buy items sight-unseen but this one was a great surprise. it is very sleek and trim and made a huge improvement in our room (over the last fan). the power is great too so it is form and function! just a note....there is a little switch to change the direction of the blade and we didn't realize that it shows until after we hung it. it would be better to take note of the it beforehand and make sure it is less visible. not a big deal though.
By: Lori R., Homeowner (Fairfax, VA)
Yet to use it....
Just had it installed. Although it is described as a hugger fan suited for 8 foot ceilings, it still seems a bit too low for the ceiling. I could change the rating once I use it....
By: Liza, Homeowner (CA)
We like it so much we got 3!
The sleek design fits our home perfectly, and the smaller blade size works really well in the smaller rooms. We may get another one when we redo another room.
By: Flyerfoot, Homeowner (Los Angeles)
Excellent Design- Worked well for our mid century house
Easy to install- Quiet, excellent design- fits well between beams as only 12" drop
By: Preston F.,
Great fan. Very high quality. My third and will buy one more.
This company makes high quality modern fans and YLighting typically carries them a competitive price. No problems with their service or delivery.
By: R.D., Homeowner (Malvern, PA)
Excellent value and performance
This is just one of several Modern Fan Company purchases that I have made over the years and I have never been disappointed. The fans are will packed with good instructions. Assembly and installation are basic. The fans run very quiet and the finish is top notch. Don't buy a cheap knock off!
By: Steven B., Designer (Phoenix)
Love this fan!
This is a great low profile, modern fan. Just what I was looking for simple and chic. This fan would look great in any and is also very quite.
By: Sandi, Homeowner (Salt Lake City, UT)
This fan was a perfect fit for a small space - and so far it seems to move the air pretty well.
We purchased this fan as part of a kitchen remodel, with limited ceiling space between recessed lights and pendant lights. We wanted to avoid the strobe effect of fan blades passing in front of the recessed lights.
This fan was a perfect fit for a small space - and so far it seems to move the air pretty well. Nice, contemporary design fits in with our overall plan.
By: David S., Homeowner (New Hampshire)
Sleek, low-profile, and quiet
Just had the fan installed yesterday and am very happy with it. I needed something small and low-profile, so I went with the 36" hugger model. It looks great, moves an impressive amount of air, & is very quiet. As long as it continues to operate this way, I'll be very satisfied.
By: JK, Homeowner (Cincinnati, OH)
Sleek and silent air mover cools us down
We just bought our second Altus Hugger Ceiling Fan. We installed one in our kitchen last year. It is hard to find ceiling fans that are stylish, take up a small amount of space and actually move air! We are in the process of renovating a library room on our second floor and when my husband asked me about including a ceiling fan, I knew which one would fit perfectly. So there you have it -- two Altus Hugger ceiling fans. Great product + great online service with free shipping = happy customer.
By: Danene S., Homeowner (Lancaster, PA)
Great, contemporary look.
Looks great, smooth quite and hopefully trouble free. Easy to install with good directions.
By: Margaret, Homeowner (Jupiter, FL)
This fan looks great and works great. The variable speeds is really helpful. I call the highest speed "hurricane". It can definitely move the air.
By: Rachael Brady, Homeowner (Durham, NC USA)
Great looking fan that is also efficient at cooling
We had this fan installed in a 15 x 12 bedroom with 8 foot ceilings. Because of the relatively low ceiling height, we were looking for a "hugger" fan, but one with enough clearance between the ceiling and the blades (at least 8 inches) to be effective at cooling the room. This one fit the bill. We ordered it with the 52 inch blades, although with some trepidation that the fan would overwhelm the room. It does not. We love the sleek, clean lines of the fan. It is quiet and efficient. The only caution would be that we had it installed by an electrician, and he had some difficulty with the installation, so would suggest unless the purchaser is very handy, to use an electrician for the installation. Also, there is a "rope" of foam inside the fan body that has to be removed for the fan to operate. This isn't mentioned in the installation instructions, and isn't readily apparent during installation.
By: Laurie, Homeowner (Denver)
Well designed ceiling fan.
Renovating kitchen and purchaced two of these fans. Liked the low profile of the design.
By: Brad B., Homeowner
Excellent product but call prior to installation
An excellent fan. Attractive, quiet, and easy to install EXCEPT for following.
A critical installation step was missing from the written instructions, which I only discovered after completing the install. Call the manufacturer first, give them the model number, and ask for any "missing" instruction steps.
By: Matt M., Homeowner (Scottsdale, AZ)
I think the product is GREAT!
I finally got it installed and it looks fantastic. Its very quite when on "high". I'm planning on purchashing another one...
By: Joel D., Homeowner (Jersey City)
Beautiful, Quiet, Buy it!
This fan adds quiet beauty to my master bedroom. It is stylish and creates an energy efficient cooler on hot summer days. The hand held remote is effective, I only wish it had a reverse function built in. This fan is one of the best and at a very good price. Treat yourself.
By: Dr. SJ, Homeowner (silver spring, MD, USA)
This is the best fan I have ever bought.
This is the best fan I have ever bought. Very very quiet and really moves the air.
It really looks great in my Kitchen.
By: Ellen, Homeowner (MA.)
This fan makes the perfect statement in a room. It is made well, runs quiet, and looks awesome! It is well worth the money. YLighting was also great to deal with.
By: Kay B., Homeowner (Florida)
Pretty cool. Worth the money.
I got the fan without the light for my living room (8 ft ceiling).
The wooden blades that are painted silver, match well with the brushed aluminum body.
It took me 20 minutes to install from start to finish.
I kept the 3-way light switch I had. It has a little dimmer on it and it works fine with the fan.
It is smooth and balanced.
It is pretty quiet on high speed. Just a notch down in speed from there and the sound is cut in half, and at slow speed, there is barely a whisper. These results were from a dead quiet room.
It also has a reverse switch located high on the side of the body.
By: , Homeowner
Attractive and works well, too.
I purchased 4 ceiling hugger fans for a beach house that has only 8 foot ceilings. The fans look very chic, are quiet and also move a surprising amount of air. I am very pleased with the fans. Good value for the money.
By: Peggy B., Homeowner (Maryland)
Great design, quiet!
This is a nice fan. Hardy, quiet, and a good breeze! It looks good in a modern design. Worth the money.
By: Danby166, Homeowner (The Woodlands, TX)
This fan is simple and stunning.
Love this fan. Plain and sleek, we did not get the separate switch but it still great on one speed.
By: C B., (Annapolis)
Perfect ceiling fan for our exercise room. We placed two of them above our cardio equipment and they work and feel great.
By: Gary D. B., (Spartanburg, SC)
We love them - they're sleek and modern
It's really difficult to find a simple yet modern ceiling fan. Most home improvement store ceiling fans are frumpy. Modern Ceiling Fan's are anything but frumpy. The Altus Hugger works great for our lower (~8 ft) ceilings. They work perfectly in a mid-century setting and the four fan speeds allow for a wide range of air flow.
By: Heidi K., Homeowner (Salt Lake City)
After installation we noticed a loud clicking at each rotation. Called the manufacturer and they walked me through the process of pinpointing the problem, and sent out a replacement fan the same day. I love a company that will stand by its products!
By: Deb, (Dallas, TX)
I love the design of this ceiling fan and it works great!
I'm very happy with this ceiling fan,the only one thing is with 3 blades you don't get as much air movement as you would with another fan with more blades. I would highly recommend this product.
By: Yvonne, (Bellevue,Wa.)
Modern, Understated & Very Quiet
The installation instructions could have been clearer, make sure the foam insert is removed before attaching the blades. The wall control is not well designed,
1=high speed and 4=low speed is not logical in my world. Overlooking these quirks, I have a very good fan.
By: H Lam, Homeowner (Vancouver, Canada)
Outstanding performer and pretty!
This is a great looking High quality fan. Easy install reliable quiet and moves a lot of air. What more could you want?
By: Martin S Taylor., Designer (Ellicoty city MD)
Best fan I ever owned
This wonderful fan is very well-constructed with a long warranty. It runs quietly and moves air very effectively, with an excellent range of speeds for the fan. I bought it because of its low profile, making it a perfect choice for low ceiling applications. Its design is clean and simple. Installation instructions were good, and it was not too difficult to install.
I highly recommend this fan. I can think of no negatives for the fan , except that the fan costs a little more than other fans I considered before buying it. But it is also a much better fan, and I am glad to own it.
By: JEFFREY P. S., Homeowner (Delta, BC, Canada)
Great design, well-made.
I purchased the Altus Hugger (42" blades) and fan switch (no light) for a small living room in a vacation rental unit with low ceilings. The modern styling and power works great for the space. I hired an electrician to install and it took about an hour (would've been quicker if he had read the instructions first). Based on what he did, I think I can probably handle the installation on my own next time. The only adaptation needed was that my wall switch was part of a 3-switch panel. Overall, what I like best is the design and variable speed control. My only wish is that it "motor hum" was a bit quieter on the lowest setting.
By: Susan L., Homeowner (Boston, MA)
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this Ceiling Fan
Modern, sleek, quiet, quick installation, buying another one
By: FARRAH G., Homeowner (NJ)
Sleek, minimal and quietly effective!
You know it's going to be OK when the electrician looks
happy as he takes the fan out of the box.
He says he's installed lots of fans from The Modern Fan Co., that
they're easy to put together and well made.
Even better, we don't have to look up at the ugly one we had before.
By: dzngrl, Homeowner (los angeles)
does what a solid fan should do: keeps you cool
i like the altus because it does its job well without all the bells and whistles. it's pudgier than the lapa, but it packs a punch. you will be very happy with this purchase.
By: bulsonic, Homeowner (new york)
Cute, standard fan
have this in our son's bedroom - we got the smaller blades - it's very cute, functional and standard for what we needed.
By: BB, Homeowner (Brooklyn, NY)
Nice looking, simple modern fan.
I needed a low profile, simple fan for a bedroom.
The selection and ease of ordering was great.
I am ordering from this company again.
By: C Borchardt, Homeowner (Annapolis,MD)
A sleek and elegant contemporary ceiling fan
I purchased two Altus Hugger ceiling fans one for my living room and one for my bedroom. Gorgeous aluminum body which adds more style to a room with the flared housing that hugs the ceiling. I did experience one flaw in the product. The screws which hold the fan blade cover onto the motor are so tight I stripped all of them the first time around. My suggestion is to spray a small amount of WD40 onto each screw then s-l-o-w-l-y unscrew each screw with a low torque setting drill or manually. Remember to take out the foam roll between the housing of the fan and the motor, this will allow the fan rotate...otherwise you will need to remove the fan blade cover and then reattach the cover.
By: Troy R., Homeowner (Phoenix, Arizona, USA)
YLighting lived up to their advertising...
When I was able to find the Altus Hugger Ceiling Fan on another website at a lower price than that offered by YLighting, they kept their promise. I purchased the Altus Hugger, just what I wanted, at the lowest price I found plus an additional 10% off. Delivery was prompt and this week we install our new fan!
By: michelle l., Homeowner (Annapolis, MD)
This is my third fan from you and my second Altus Hugger. The fans cool very well and look even better. Great design, engineering and price don't usually come in the same package, but these fans and Y-lighting really do!
By: Helynn B., (Columbus, Ohio, USA)
Great sleek, compact addition to our small kitchen.
The product is great. Sleek, quiet, moves a lot of air for a small fan. I am thrilled that you offered a pin-based cfl to go with it. I did have a few problems with the shipping-product arrived with a broken bulb and stained globe. I received the replacement parts in a timely manner - but the new globe does not work with the cfl light kit, so I had to stick with the stained globe. All in all, quite pleased with the fan though. Thanks!
By: Katharine K., Homeowner (washington, DC USA)
A clean look for a modern house - or any house where you want an unobtrusive ceiling fan.
Installation is pretty straightforward with the only hard step being mating the fan body to the ceiling mount. Even this step has been simplified a bit with a helpful retaining cable - easier than standard fans, but not a cakewalk.
By: S Kelly, Homeowner (Dublin, Ohio)
I LOVE THIS FAN
FOR IT'S DESIGN AND ARCHITECT.THIS IS WHAT MAKES IT UNIQUE.IT LOOKS GREAT IN MY DEN.
By: BABYSIS, Designer (KY)
The Altus Hugger Ceiling Fan has high-quality components, an appealing design, and performs with high quality.
The product is great, and highly recommended, with the exception of its installation, which was complex, poorly documented in instructions, and physically difficult.
Delivery from y-lighting was slower than expected.
By: TIMOTHY A., Homeowner (Austin, TX)
Very modern, nice looking fan!
We have not put it up yet, but it looks great! Just what we were looking for. We bought this fan because our electrician told us it will work well for many many years to come. Ylighting was great to buy from. We will by from them again in the future. Thanks for the lovely fan!
By: James C., Homeowner (Missoula, Montana)
Beautiful, sleek design
This fan is beautiful--sleek, clean lines. It cooled our room down efficiently as well.

Beautiful clean design
Stunning clean design. Works beautifullly and quietly.
By: Sydney M., Homeowner (Ave Maria, FL)
Although shipping took a while, once we received the fan everything was great. The design looks fabulous and it works perfectly.
By: Kimberlee S., Homeowner (Indiana)
Love the fan.
This was easy to install and it works and looks great. We were very happy with the purchase
By: maura k., Homeowner (belmont, ma)
Great price, great service
I shopped for this product before I decided to buy from YLighting. The sales rep was a master at consultative selling -- extremely helpful, providing specific advice on both blade size and extension rod length, questions two other on-line vendors couldn't answer. The product arrived promptly...until my electrician installs them, I won't be able to say everything is perfect, but so far, so good!
By: Timothy B., Homeowner (Los Angeles)
Great looking fan that works really well.
We purchased two fans so far and we plan on purchasing more. Our contractor installed the fan. It looks really contemporary and not very intrusive. We are happy with the quality and the look.
By: House renovation 2007, Homeowner (Long Island, NY)
Very good fan
This fan works well in our small bedroom. We have an old house with low ceilings upstairs and it fits well in the space. It is very quiet and suitable for use at night while sleeping. Regarding installation: we had planned to install it ourselves, but after receiving it we found that it is very heavy due to the large (high quality) motor, so we chose to hire an electrician to install it. It is heavy enough that we were afraid it might pull the existing junction box loose from the ceiling, so we had a professional install a new junction box attached to the bottom of a joist. The electrician reported that the fan is unusually difficult to assemble, but it certainly works well once installed.

I purchased this fan with the 36" blades for a 11'x12' room, and despite the length of the blades, this fan puts out quite a bit of power, while being quiet in operation. Also, the look is pleasantly contemporary.

This fan is contemporary enough for our modern traditional home and is very quiet - even on the highest setting. We bought the white one for our den and it is practially invisible, which is what we wanted. I will most likely order this same fan for our bedrooms. The only thing that may bother some people is the tiny switch that changes the direction of which way the fan blows. It doesn't bother me but it's getting to my husband. We may reinstall it so that the buttom faces another direction. Other than that, the fan is perfect and we love it!

Exactly What We Wanted!
I was really suprised by this fan. It cooled the room much better than our previous model which had twice as many blades. It just goes to show what a difference innovative engineering can make. I plan to replace two other fans in the house with the same model.

Great looks and very functional
I bought this fan for all the bedrooms in my house. It is a great look and has great air flow. So happy with my purchase.

Love the look, very clean and contemporary, the air flow is awesome.
This is the first time I have purchased a ceiling fan from the web. I did so because our local stores did not carry the style that I wanted.
I am delighted with my fan- I love its contemporary style!

Love my Altus Hugger Ceiling Fan!
This modern fan is so nice in my living room. Just perfect for the size of my living room. I ordered the 52-inch blades. Strongly recommended for those looking for sleek, modern fan.

Hugger modern fan
No goofy looking mainstream fans for me thank you.....this is a lovely modern fan that was relatively easy to install and reasonably priced. Works great.

Lovely modern fan
From ordering my fan to receiving it: I am extremely pleased with Y LIghting's customer service and high quality product! The Altus Hugger Fan is very functional yet doesn't sacrifice form: it's sleek and modern. I also ordered the accessories for the fan; the lighting fixture and the wall control panel for fan speed and dimming the light. I am very happy with my purchase and know I will be ordering from Y Lighting again. I would highly recommend them to anyone!

We love how it looks. Just remember to take out the styrofoam, as the directions weren't clear on that.

Modern and stylish with very effective cooling!
I am extremely happy with the aesthetics, quality and function of this fan! I searched for over 13 months before deciding to buy this Modern Fan Company fan for my adjoining kitchen (9'4'x11')/ dinette area (10'x13'). I ordered the 36" blades, and the fan provides more than adequate coverage for the designated space. I was pleasantly surprised by the impressive power of the motor, despite itâs whisper quiet operation. The fan took less than an hour to install and the instructions were easy to follow.
