Here are a few common questions we get regarding the Spoleto Fan
What is the highest Bulb Wattage this fan will accept?
Unfortunately, this fan does not come with an integrated light kit built into it. A nice feature, however, is the metallic “bowl” which is actually a mirrored metal, and not glass so does not have any wiring. This metallic “bowl” is purely and simply for decorative purposes only.
I am certain that there may be a similar fan but different model which does include the light kit.
How is the Ceiling Fan’s airflow reversed?
The reverse switch for the airflow direction is found on the top of the fan motor housing for the ceiling fan.
Is the Spoleto II Fan compatible with handheld remote control?
This model has no remote control for the ceiling fan operation. The four-speed switch mounted on the wall is used for the control of the fan.
This fan scored a 3.9 stars out of 5 stars based on 18 customer reviews.
Even though the score is a bit lower than some other models a whopping 92% of customers said they would recommend this ceiling fan.
Apparently the ease of installation is what lets this fan down. It’s a little harder to install than other fans.
I was needing a good ceiling fan to move a good amount of air in an attic space that was not finished. The Spoleto II fan had a sort of strong industrial look to it so it appeared appropriate for the attic space.
It certainly does move a heck of a lot of air, and it also looks pretty darn good. However, the installation process is way more difficult than it really needs to be for this fan, it’s still doable in a reasonable time period.
A few important points you need to be aware of though – that big metallic shiny dome that is on the bottom is no light, it’s actually a chrome/metallic ball.
This ceiling fan doesn’t come with any light kit and one can’t be added.
Also, I noticed, while the ceiling fan has a reverse option, the switch for this is situated right on the top of the fan motor housing, making it out of reach without a high enough ladder.
If you are looking for a ceiling fan that can create a very nice breeze, but are not needing a light and you can see yourself never really needing to reverse it, then this fan is quite a good bargain for the price.
If not, then you will need to make a choice from the other thousand ceiling fans found at the HomeDepot store.
So all in all this is a nice fan assembly, with a good finish. This is an entry-level ceiling fan I would say more for seasonal use than for the typical year-round 24 /7.
The fan motor certainly isn’t big but you can be sure that it is ready and able to do the job of moving air and creating a breeze.
Install for the average DIY person will have issues if you are the sort of person that is not comfortable with electricity.
If this is you then I suggest you turn off the power and read the instructions step by step until you fully understand all the involved steps. Next, proceed only if you are confident and comfortable with the mentioned tools needed and all the electrical connections that are required.
My only major disappointment is with the hanger bracket which is used to support the Spoleto ceiling fan is plastic material.
In conclusion, if the fan size and design fits your own needs this is certain to give you many years of very good performance.
Pros: Good Airflow, Stylish & Attractive, Functional
Cons: Plastic Bracket for Support
