Product Review

The transitional, five-blade indoor/outdoor damp rated ceiling fan has a look that balances well with almost any decor. It features a oil rubbed bronze finish, choose between different styles and color blades (sold separately). This fan features a six-speed reversible switch that allows for summer/winter operation. The fan provides airflow at up to 7,929 cubic feet per minute (cfm) at its highest speed when using the 60-inch width. It is highly efficient and rated to operate at 21 watts at high speed (without the lighting on), which gives it an airflow efficiency rating of 342 cfm per watt (60-inch blades). (As a comparison, 36-inch to 48-inch ceiling fans have airflow efficiency ranging from approximately 71 to 86 cfm per watt at high speed. Designed for rooms starting at 200 square feet and up (roughly 10 by 20 feet with 54-inch blades), the Petite utilizes a 165 millimeter EcoMotor. The Emerson Carrera Grande Eco can have a light kit attach (sold separately). The hand carved blades (sold separately) have a 16-degree pitch.

Customer Reviews

After 2 years, the 2 fans are working well. Both developed vibrations in the second year due to drying out of the wooden fan blades. This was corrected by tightening fan blade attaching bolts. The next best fan to the now defunct Hunter Old Tyme fan.

Nice quality fan and nice selection of fan blades to go with it. I have installed numerous fans and this is the first one where you install the fan blades before hanging. Worked out just fine. Hung, wired, turned on and started programming itself. Quietest fan I have had and pushes fair amount of air even on low setting on 10ft ceiling. Looking forward to the direct current efficiency as we we’ll have this fan on most of the time.

I was originally scared to pay so much for this fan, mainly due to the other customer comment about the fan having poor output. The main thing we wanted in a fan was to feel the wind (chill)! I had previously purchased a fan from Home Depot with a 72″ blade span and a DC motor and I could barely feel the thing when it was on high (level 6). So I did my research and found the Carrera Grande Eco to be the best combination of efficiency and wind speed (source: […]). And, after installing it, I must say I’m completely satisfied with the wind speed. I have 22″ blades, and with that I can leave the fan on low (level 1) and it’s plenty for a good night’s sleep in a warm-ish room. The only thing I don’t like about this is the price. But you get what you pay for! I’ve also, since, purchased the remote control for this fan. It works perfectly — no failures to receive the signal or anything. The only down-side to the whole system is that the remote and the wall plate seem to have their own, separate ideas of what speed they’re currently on. But oh well, no biggie.
