This is one of those ceiling fans that are just really loved by one and all. We took a look at over 632 customer reviews and found a huge 93% would recommend this ceiling fan
We give this ceiling fan a total of 4.5 stars out of 5 stars overall with one of the highest ease of installation scores we have seen for any fan.
One feature we noticed that many had a problem with is the location of the reverse switch.
The location of the directional switch is meant to be under the hood. However, it is not there. We needed to spend a little time altering the wiring to get the reverse operation. We will probably need to do a DIY and install a switch ourselves.
However with that one problem out of the way, all we can do is give praise to this ceiling fan.
We were very pleased and impressed with the considerable airflow and how it operated with a beautiful quietness.
Just a note that although its named Industrial Ceiling Fan it is very suitable for your homeroom. In fact, most of the customers purchased this fan for their home environment.
We bought this ceiling fan for a bedroom and a TV lounge room.
Both of the rooms were always very hot and no matter how low we set the Air Conditioner we just simply could not feel any air moving, even though the rooms already had ceiling fans.
We were a little worried about purchasing the Industrial Ceiling Fans because the two rooms have only a standard ceiling height, roughly about 8 feet, but we are so very happy we did.
These ceiling fans do create strong air movement that both the bedroom and TV room feel nice and cold.
And since we live in Florida that says a lot. We plan on buying another one to replace the older ceiling fan in the living area.
If you are installing a smaller fan with a light kit then please refer to our article: How To Install a Hampton Bay Ceiling Fan
Because industrial ceiling fans are larger than your normal standard home ceiling fan the installation is going to be a little bit different.
- You can use the existing light fixture for your ceiling fan by removing the shades, bulbs and screws that hold the fixture to the ceiling.
After ensuring all power is turned off to the light fixture, remove the light fixture disconnecting all of the wires.
- Obviously your Industrial ceiling fan will weigh more than the standard ceiling fan so you will need to ensure that your ceiling is fitted with a box that is suitable for ceiling fan support. If you are sure your ceiling fan box is suitable then proceed.
- Carefully drill a clean hole in the joist for the ‘J-hook’ bracket that was supplied with your Hampton Bay Industrial 60 inch ceiling fan to secure it to. Next, make sure you securely screw this ‘J-hook’ bracket into your ceiling joist.
- Carefully slide the supplied drop-rod over the fan wiring at the top of the industrial ceiling fan motor and then make sure you secure it tightly with the bolts.
- Next, slide the canopy down over the drop-rod so that the flat side of the ceiling fan canopy is directly facing downwards, and then make sure you secure it firmly to the down-rod with the appropriate screw.
- Next, you will need to slide the upper part of the canopy over your drop-rod ensuring that the flat piece of your canopy is directly facing upwards. DON’T secure this upper canopy yet.
- Find the U-shaped brackets and secure on either side of the top of the drop-rod, with appropriate bolts.
- Next, you will need to set the roller ball into your ‘U-shaped’ bracket, and then hang the completed ceiling fan assembly onto your ‘J-hook’.
- With your industrial ceiling fan wires, carefully match the colours of the ceiling fan wires (ground to ground, white to white and black to black) with the colours of the exposed wires from your ceiling. Hold the wires securely together using wire nuts.
- Next, Secure the upper canopy to the down-rod with the appropriate screw.
- Using the appropriate bolts and/or screws, install the ceiling fan blades to the holes in the top of the industrial ceiling fan motor, making sure that the fan blades are secure.
- Install the wall control by carefully connecting the ground wire from the wall to the ground wire from the wall control, the black wire from the wall to the black wire from the wall control, and the white wire from the wall to the white wire from the wall control using wire nuts. Next, make sure the wall control is secured to the wall box.
