I installed this fan in my loft about 3 years ago and love it. Not only does it look great the quality seems so much better than other manufacturers. It is very quite and well built. I use a 4-way switch to control the fan and dim the light...that's the way to go.

I am very pleased with my industry fan. It is very well designed and was very easy to install. The retro industrial look was just what I wanted for both my living room and bedroom.

Wonderful looking fan, would look good in many types of houses from contemporary to rustic...
By:KPA , Designer (Connecticut)
Great product and would give it 5 stars, except for 1- it isn't energy star certified, so it didn't qualify for a rebate from the utility (manufacturer says it is the same components as an energy star qualified fan, but isn't registered with EPA) 2- the 'maple' blades aren't wood, and don't really look like maple... more of a beech color. Satisfied, nonetheless.

I am very impressed with this product. It is solidly designed, well constructed, and perfectly balanced. The fan produces almost no noise, even at maximum speed. Installation and the associated instructions are well written and easy to follow. One comment for the electronic designers - I received the fan speed wall control with the fan. It has four settings, 0 through 4. Zero is, naturally, off but one is maximum speed and four is the lowest speed. It would be more intuitive to reverse this order. However, the product is excellent and I have no hesitation about recommending it to others.

Incredibly original design. Body is quite heavy, but great quality. This fan is very quiet and awesome looking. Had an electrician install it.

Called YLighting with tons of questions about identifying the appropriate Modern Fans fan, and got a fantastic person who not only helped me with the decision but gave me valuable additional guidance. Everything went perfectly smoothly, got the fan in 5 days instead of the 3 weeks I was warned of. Had a professional electrician install as I have 23 ft. ceilings. All went smoothly and I adore the fan.

I am really happy with this fan, I wanted a raw look with a hint of modern.
With the galvanized finish it gives me the look I was shopping for plus the quiet
and efficient motor. Looks great, works great!
This is the third IF we've purchased, this one for our daughter's loft. The fans are quiet, easy to install and a pleasure to look at.

<p>We purchased the fan for an outdoor pavilion to match two existing rod iron antique chandeliers with the extension rod to accommodate the ceiling height. The products arrived promptly, and were identical to the images online. The descriptions and ample information online made it easy to order exactly what we wanted and the result is a fixture that looks seamless and beautiful. We couldn't be more pleased, thank you.</p>

<p>Your easy to navigate website & prompt response to our order</p><p>are very much appreciated. However the room into which the fan will be installed is still under construction so we cannot review the fan at this time.</p>

This fan has added so much to my loft. I looked everywhere for a fan to fit my industrial aesthetic and this one fit perfectly. I purchased the galvanized steel base with black blades is looks amazing in my Living Room area. Not only is it quiet, but I now finally have some air flow in my home and can cut back on using the A/C.

I searched far and wide for a modern industrial fan and this was by far my favorite. It is a beautiful fan and is a perfect fit for our urban modern industrial decor. Very well made too.

This is the perfect fan for our modern industial urban home. It is very well made too.

Most fans that are touted as being "outdoor" will not stand up to the heat and humidity of the southern states. If you try to keep them clean they deteriate even faster. This galvanized beauty should last forever.
By:Gerald F. , Homeowner (Baton Rouge, La)
I was attracted to the funky, old barn/machinery look of this fan for a "rustic" yet modern room and it works perfectly!
It was easy to install and the wall unit works well.
There was a bit of miscommunication about the light kit, and I called the company and they quickly and cheerfully sent the one I wanted.
My ONLY complaint is the "Maple" blades look more like composite board [which they are..] rather than actual light maple.. but the fan is rather high up so it doesn't matter too much in this room..
By:Stephanie G. , Homeowner (Virginia)
The Industry fan was everything I expected. Unfortunately, it was a tad noisy, making an electrical buzzing noise when used with the remote. It was suggested after I had called regarding this to directly wire it to the power to see if the sound is eliminated. I haven't tried this yet.
Otherwise, it's the look I'm going for. I also would have like an option in lighting kit besides halogen (annoying and expensive) and that strange new cfl screw-in type. The best option would have been traditional screw in bulb to allow us the choice to use an incandescent or cfl bulb in the old screw-in manner.

Designer fan with beautiful finish and any options that one might consider for a ceiling fan

I am very pleased with the Industry Ceiling Fan. It was easy to assemble and install, and works as advertised.

This light is for a homeowner's sons room and it's perfect. The industrial feel compliments the young teen's desire for a more mature bedroom with a modern style.

The fan operates well but is to noisy.

Fans are on a screened porch. Galvanized body makes a great contrast with the while ceiling, white support posts and trim and grey decking.
By:William U. , Homeowner (Ocean View DE)
The Industry ceiling fan is a very nice product and looks perfect in my bedroom. Installation is easy and once up, the fan is very quiet and works well. The industrial finish has variation so if you are looking for a uniform finish this isn't the fan for you. I only have two small complaints that keep this from getting 5 stars: 1) the "bulb" part of the fan where the light kit would go (if I had one) is slightly crooked on mine. It doesn't affect performance but does look funny if you catch the right angle and 2) I think this fan is very expensive for what you get. If it were in the $200-250 range, it would be much more reasonable. Aesthetically, I was after a certain look, so I justified the extra cost in my head, but if you aren't after the look, you can find just as good of a product for half the cost.
