Review of the Hampton Bay Windward IV Ceiling Fan

The Windward IV Fan has over 1057 customer reviews, one of the more popular ceiling fans in the Hampton Bay Ceiling Fan range. A total of 4.4 stars out of 5 stars is what we give this ceiling fan. A good 84% of customers said they would recommend this fan to others.

It seems the biggest let down for this fan is the Ease of Installation. It is just a little bit tricky to install and especially if you are not the handyman type or DIYer.

This particular model we purchased to replace an earlier model of the Hampton Bay Windward 52 in. ceiling fan. Over many years, we have had the fortune of installing two dozens of different ceiling fans.

We have to say that placement of the remote control receiver in the fan housing near the ceiling is absolutely crazy, requiring all sorts of positions and a great deal of effort to get the fan wires out of your way so you can get the actual receiver in the right place. I’m sure there has to be a much better way to do this.

We now have two of the Windward IV fans in the same living room so when one failed it was essential to replace it with one that was similar.

Despite the installation problems, the good news is that the new remote control that comes with the fan is so much cleaner and a lot smaller than the older model. In addition, the light kit uses two bulbs instead of the difficult to find florescent 9″ bulb in the older model.

So all in all, once it is assembled and installed it’s a real dream. The fan is very very quiet and it does move a good amount of air, so we save a lot of energy by keeping the ceiling fan on low. The new blade design seems to be working well for Hampton Bay.

This is a modern-looking fan at a very reasonable price.

The fan is available in the four colours below. With such a variety of colours it means that you can match most decor colour schemes. Our preference is for the brushed nickel.

FAQ and Troubleshooting the Windward IV Fan

Can this ceiling fan be used outdoors?

No, the Hampton Bay Windward fans designed to function inside and not in locations where too much water or humidity are present.

The water and humidity will cause damage to the fan blades and moisture build-up will cause damage to the fan motor.

Is the fan light kit dimmable?

With the CFL light bulbs, you can’t dim the light. However, if you use 60watt incandescent lightbulbs and also set the “ON/DIM” dipswitch on the handheld remote control, then you will be able to dim the lights.

Can I use a universal remote control with the Windward IV fan?

Yes, this ceiling fan is compatible with universal receivers and remote control units. However, you need to ensure that you only use a ‘paired’ receiver and remote.

Keep in mind that there is no guarantee that the original receiver and remote that you are using currently is going to use the same software as the new one. You need to make sure you replace both the remote control and the receiver.

Can you mount the Windward IV fan onto an angled, vaulted or sloped ceiling?

Yes, you can mount this ceiling fan onto an angled or sloped ceiling, then the installation will require an extension downrod and on the steep ceiling, you will require the Westinghouse canopy kit.
