We get some questions asked about the light kit and the glass shade so we thought we would answer these questions for you here.
Can you install the fan without the Light Kit?
No. You must install the light kit with the fan for it to operate correctly.
Can you install the fan without the middle glass shade?
No. The reason for this is because the glass shade covers the lightbulb housings and then directly above the lightbulb housing are the exposed screws along with a thin, heat protector material. The glass shade hides all of this making it more attractive to look at.
However, in saying that, if you are not so concerned about aesthetic looks then because the Frosted glass screws on last, if you wish to leave it off then you can.
Is the light fixture an integral part of the Tipton fan or can it be changed?
We get this question because some are actually more interested in being able to put the light fixture onto another fan.
Unfortunately, although the light kit looks very attractive, light kits are not interchangeable for the Tipton style fan.

With 42 customer reviews, we found the Tipton II 52in. Indoor Oil-Rubbed Bronze Ceiling Fan with Light Kit was given a total of 3.9 stars out of 5 stars.
Only 69% of customers would recommend this ceiling fan.
The appearance was one of the biggest selling pros, however the ease of installation was the biggest draw back.
We found that the fan actually looks really nice and stylish, however, that’s where the good stuff stops.
The included light kit, in our opinion, is too small and it only holds 2 lightbulbs, both of these lightbulbs can only be a maximum of 60 watts each, which is not anywhere near enough light for our guest-room (which has light-coloured painted walls).
Cosmetically, the different colours, maple and walnut, of the ceiling fan blades are not that much different, which was a big disappointment.
Unfortunately, we found the motor on this ceiling fan makes quite a LOT of noise when the blades rotate and is extremely unpleasant and which is especially loud and bad at the low and medium speeds.
We have tended to have had decent luck with Hampton Bay fans in the past, so maybe we have a bad version of this particular Tipton model.
Pros: Looks Great, Very Stylish
Cons: Very Poor Light Illumination, Annoying Motor Noise, Very Little Difference in the Reversible Blade Color
