You might be wondering like I was, why the Holly Springs Ceiling Fan model is called low-profile. Naming it a low-profile fan doesn’t mean that the quality is not good, it refers to the design of this ceiling fan.
A low-profile ceiling fan will work best on a low ceiling. It can be mounted and hang under 12 inches, allowing the fan to carry prime airflow without dangling too low.
To simplify, a low-profile fan comes with a downrod, while the hugger ceiling fan doesn’t include it. If you are looking for a ceiling fan model for your low ceiling, you might want to consider a low profile ceiling fan instead of a hugger, in that way, you’ll find a lot more options available to choose from.
As you may have noticed by looking at the table above, this unit produced lower airflow when compared to the other Holly Spring models, at only 3763 cubic feet per minute.
Just like any other machine that you have at home, maintenance is a part of ensuring they keep working as intended for a long time. It can help in preserving the unit in a good condition and prolongation of the ceiling fan’s life.
One way to maintain a ceiling fan is by lubrication. You can do this by putting nondetergent motor oil into the ceiling fan bearings. Every manufacturer will usually give you a suggested brand of motor oil, and the amount of oil that you need for lubricating the motor bearings of the fan, it is best to follow their suggestions.
The latest model of ceiling fan comes with its own self-lubricating property or a self-oiling type. If that is the case you don’t have to lubricate it annually.

As I have mentioned, most of the latest model of ceiling fans have their own self -oiling type. However, if you own an old model you should be aware that lubricating the ceiling fan bearings regularly is important.
You will know that your ceiling fan needs lubrication if you can see an oil hole in the motor. Another sign that the ceiling fan needs to be lubricated is when out of nowhere it starts to make a high-pitched noise and starts to wobble. It means that the bearing inside the motor is calling for a drop of oil.
- From the fan’s motor, find the hole for the oil. If you are using an oil with a sprayer, spray a little amount of oil into the hole.
- Wait for at least 2 hours for the oil to do its job.
- Pour about an ounce of motor oil, until it flows out of the top.
- Wipe the oil that is in the housing.
- Try spinning the ceiling fan manually to let the oil go deep into the parts where the noise came from
For inaccessible and sealed bearings
- Take off the blades and the motor from the ceiling.
- Take off the motor casing so you can have a way to access the bearings.
- To avoid that hassle of additional disassembling of the fan, look for a junction where the moving parts and the consistent part meet on the motor shaft, gradually place the oil through the junction.
- After a thorough application of lubricant, return the blades and the motor to the ceiling fan brackets. Repeat the process after a year.
In order to install it manually, are there any tools that I would need to purchase?
Most of the things needed for installation are included in the purchase. Here are some tools that you need that are not included in the purchase. Ladder, screwdrivers, wire cutters, electrical tape. I suggest that you download the installation guide. There is a section that explains the information and guides for the specific product. Check the end of this article for the download link.
Can a remote be added?
Yes, this ceiling fan is compatible with any universal remote
Is this fan available without the light kit?
The fan is purchased with a light kit, but it can be installed without the light kit. The fan includes the hardware needed for installation without a light kit.
I cracked the glass; can I get a replacement part? Yes, you can get replacement parts by calling Hampton Bay customer service. Check out our article: Hampton Bay Replacement Parts
What is the actual color of the globe? The color of the light shade is white but remember that the color temperature of the bulbs that you are using may affect the appearance of the shade. For example, if you are using a bulb with 2700K warm white to 3000K soft white, the globe shade might appear to have a slight amber tone. If you want a perfect white appearance, I suggest you replace the bulbs with 5000K daylight bulbs.
Does the Fan Works in High Ceilings?
In technical aspects, this ceiling fan will work on a high ceiling. I would recommend the first model, the Holly Spring 52 in with a downrod hardware (model #57269). Downrod will bring the fan closer to the floor for an optimum amount of airflow.
Is this Ceiling Fan good for humid areas? Nope, this ceiling fan is not designed for humid areas. It is designed for indoor uses only.

The bottom line is if you are installing the fan make sure that you install it properly. If you find any problem or noise after the installation, it is better to contact the customer service for assistance. Some of the issues might be resolved with just minor troubleshooting.
